PUBLIC DISSING OF MEN…seems to be a fashion,,

Filed under: General — mama @ 9:49 am Tue 20th November 2018

Yesterday , listening to the radio, there was a father talking to his son, about growing up , the father breached the subject of erection in a silly way so as to embarass his son but their conversation was interrupted by a civil defence alert via a mobile this talk, which was supposed to be funny was to bring our attention to a civil defence warning.

Sometimes I have to wonder who comes up with this stuff and assuming this was a government funded advertisement for the safety of it’s people I found it insulting in the nature of it’s content.

Why are things so hell bent on putting Men down.


  1. I know you will say SILLY QUESTION.

  2. It’s a partisan ideology that flourishes under leftwing governments for obvious reasons.

    Or should I say under some current left wing governments of which New Zealand is a good or bad example depending how you view it.

  3. What a Feminist academic thinks;

    Toxic masculinity is held responsible not just for the rape and sexual assault of women, but also anxiety, depression and even suicide in men. It suggests that men are fundamentally both damaged and damaging,

  4. “It suggests that men are fundamentally both damaged and damaging,…”
    #That is such a disgusting thing to say.

    Where are the women heros of this world anyway, in a hero parade?

    EVERY MORNING on the AM SHOW there is a womans’ ISSUE brought to light, ysrterday it was anorexia today it was drink spiking, the shows’ host Duncan Garner did ask about the mens’side, “does it happen to Men too?”.
    The other night co-host Jeremy on Seven Sharp mentioned Mens’ Day.

    Is there a glimmer of Men standing up for men, are they willing the Men to stand up and be counted as a group that stand together for the good of their kind?

    and on that note thank goodness the Police have learned to say “NO” to the squew gender parade and doubly YAY to the defence force showing their SOLIDARITY!!!

  5. Drink spiking of women is rare in NZ though you wouldn’t think so from the frequency of unsubstantiated claims. In the vast majority of alleged cases the woman has simply drunk too much, as confirmed when tests show no other drugs. A group of men have been spiking drinks presumably with sexual intentions in Christchurch recently but that’s one of the only cases, and the police have mounted a pamphlet campaign warning women to watch their drinks etc.

    Real drink spiking isn’t only done by men to women, as this article shows.

    The authoritative report on drink spiking of course can be found here on

  6. It is my choice, that I watch NZ TV,, but I may have to refrain as more content covets a generation I can not come to grips with.

    Seven Sharps covered a story where the new ‘Dad’ this world is offering up is a ;non-binary young woman, proudly expounding that she was the Dad. Can they not make up some other name for their position, I am sure they could but no, the word was used for the piece to show what, how far we have come in acceptance??,,, personally I thought they should have offered a warning to viewers prior to showing this piece, I found it disturbing.. I will never watch that show again.

  7. It’s quite inline with an element of Feminism that claims that a woman’s body is primarily for her sexual pleasure and reproduction secondary on her terms should she desire.

    The male is irrelevant.

    You may remember something similar during the Clark Ministry were a documentary was produced by New Zealand on Air about two lesbians wanting to conceive. The sperm donor was a homosexual masturbating in the next bedroom. The sperm was carried in a warm cup to be manually inserted by the willing party of the lesbian couple.

    We’re continuing where we left off in terms of visibility of the thoughts of this element of ‘our society’.

  8. “The Economist
    As exercise and smoothies have replaced despair and alcohol, the suicide rate in Russia has crashed.”

    I don’t know if this is fake news or they really are doing something different in Russia.

    The Economist claims it is happening in other places too.

    So, what are we doing wrong.

  9. Oh man, this is going to be hellish, trying to avoid it…I find it difficult to ignore. My grandkids are going to have it swilling around them in school,,only yesterday I did not know what they meant by ‘non-binary’, today I googled it to find so much, and here I was thinking it to at least be a scientific term for something, but surely not to believe it some kind of fascion or fancy.

    There was a ‘teen’ site that talked to the teens about it being a fashion, wear it as you want, one of the girls talked about her ‘non-binary’ moment coming when she entered highschool.

    You are right in saying that things are over communicated among peoples.

  10. Even though this program was about reproduction the overall effect no doubt has a lot to do with the rapidly declining fertility rates in developed countries.

  11. # 8, Evan, That’s really interesting, just like the western countries are strugglin with runaway little trains, their new generations are just right?

  12. # 10. Downunder, so create or nuture another fashion, SWELL.

  13. You see it everywhere, even in this RNZ article about police cars.

    The Police Association said it had received reports of officers having problems with the headroom in the new Holden Commodore liftbacks, which will be the standard car that police use once the current Commodore sedans are fazed out.

    The issue was brought to light by an anonymous constable in the association’s latest news magazine.

    They refer to the new cars as “a bit snug”.

    “Some mates in Counties [Manukau] were left scratching their heads on how to return ‘one’ to the station when he just didn’t fit in the back seat.”

    Mostly men who will be forced into an inconvenient workplace, and male prisoners who will create difficult working situations.

    No wonder the police cannot recruit willing applicants from its own society.

  14. 13, yes the police solution is to make the officers smaller.

    Ps. Good post- that one at top of page.

  15. “listening to the radio, there was a father talking to his son, about growing up , the father breached the subject of erection in a silly way so as to embarass his son but their conversation was interrupted by a civil defence alert via a mobile phone”

    Was this a paid or public service announcement/promotion? If so it is incredibly sick and very creepy. It should be reported to appropriate media regulators.

  16. It’s an old add that must have been dusted off for a re-run.
