Is male suicide genocide?

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 9:17 am Sat 30th November 2019

I’m going to ask you for 12 minutes of your time to view this video clip.

Erin believes males are dying from being hated and being discriminated against. She says it is a form of genocide and it is being funded by the Government.

Says the Government plays the paper trail and does not actively take any action against male suicide.

    Thank you Lukenz,,, Thank you Erin.

    We are in a new age.

    We have seen disporia previously but not by gender.

    Christianity has been the most productive religion so far but now we are seeing a rebellion against it.

    The Feminist rebellion goes further back than what Erin suggests and that is well documented. The effects have never been so dramatic as they are now.

    What I cannot fathom is why we refuse to accept what’s happening.

    Its absolutely contrary to civilized development.

    Thank you for suggesting the video link. What an amazing woman, she is so inspirational. Over the last few years we(our family) have been working through Family Court. And yes, especially the appointed Lawyer for Child certainly displays extreme feminist traits described by Erin in the video. E.g. at the first initial meeting my 25yr old son, father of the child, was asked by LFC when discussing the unplanned pregnancy…” you had never thought of having a vasectomy “ . My son calmly responded to LFC, “ I was too young, they would not agree to one”. At that point LFC did a small giggle and flippantly mentioned she was only joking. Our first meeting she showed her true colours….Yes we certainly need more Erin’s, we all need to start pushing back. Our men and boys deserve so much more.

    …we do need to start to push back,, there is some traction out there but coming together as one voice is difficult when Men are being portrayed constantly as the bad guys, media has a lot to answer for in this current era,,,,

    This is from the above link,,,

    ‘Efforts should be made to encourage equal numbers of qualified men and women among those employed in, or contracted to, the Family Court.’

    Where is this encouragement for Men going to come from, a government agency??.. I wanna hear it.

    Dr. Paul Callister laid out the men’s diaspora quite clearly, in 2005. Even though I had been fairly close to where these issues were taking place, I hadn’t realised that the impacts were large enough to be clearly visible in national statistics. That was quite an eye opener to me.
    But the vast majority of the population remain blissfully unaware of how large the impact is on our society, even today, 14 years later (one generation?).
    But large gendered impacts may not be well known in the wider public sphere, but they have occurred on many previous occasions.
    Two examples come to mind:
    The tsunami in South East Asia resulted in more deaths of women than men.
    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2005/mar/26/internationalaidanddevelopment.indianoceantsunamidecember2004
    In NZ a hundred years ago, suicide was more prevalent among women than men.
    China – single child per family policy
    It just happens that the three events with the largest gendered impact that I know about were of higher women’s deaths.
    So gendered impacts of social forces is not a new phenomenon, it is more that we now have the tools to be more aware of it.
    The challenge now is to do something constructive about these social forces, without creating new harms.

    War has surely taken more men in the largest numbers than any other phenomenon, this HIS burden as Man…

  8. Bevan Berg says:

    @6 you misquoted me.

    The symptom of disporia is recorded in other cultures – essentially meaning to disperse the unwanted.

    As often happens words are brought into English tending to relate specifically to the Jewish people with the variant diaspora, much like holocaust as a specific genocide.

    Perhaps my point wasn’t clear, that the group of suicides are not in isolation but part of a larger group dispersed into No-mans land.

  9. MurrayBacon says:

    #8 Thank you Bevan.
    As you state, both forces have somewhat similar effects and both need to be taken seriously.
    It horrifies me that these quite large social impacts are so poorly understood by most members of our society. The effects are not just loss of life, but impacts onto our culture, how we bring up children and on many people’s well-being.
    Erin Pizzey’s words are just as true today, as when she said them.
    Social science academics have been quite slow to develop tools for analysing these complex situations competently.
    Until those tools become usable, it remains let the buyer beware. But these situations have teeth, so it is necessary to look a long way ahead, to actually be able to protect yourself from these hazards….

    Thank you all for your responses.

    I just wanted to point out that very little has been done to stem the huge male suicide not only in NZ but around the world.

    There is talk of funding to solve the problem. I’m not sure how much funding and what the money will be spent on to halt this incredible waste of life. Will the funding be spent on research? Maybe they could employee more doctors or other specialists. I suppose they would need to have cars to drive around in, nice offices, desks, smart phones, computers, holiday pay, training (now called CPD), have to go to seminars oversea. There would need to be accountants, managers, HR people. Need to be coffee breaks, lunch times. What are they going to do?

    If you want to know the reasons why men commit suicide you need to look no further than here

    http://www.nzlii.org/nz/cases/NZCorC/

    Its the Coroners Court. Click on a few links and you will come across a lot of men and boys who found themselves in awful or unfair positions that current legislation and practices that are designed to put them in or put them at a disadvantage.

    Money to set up some whip-de-do bunch of academics is not required. What is required is understanding that men simply can’t be done over in matrimonial disputes, be force to give away assets to a woman who he has been in a relationship for 3 years and nor should he face the media (including social media) for just being accused of a sex crime. Only if he is guilty should that happen. Boys need their dads and dads need their families.

    How could the Government be so obtuse to the obvious? Will it change? Nope. Why not? There is simply no will or concern for the outcome of mens well-being when legislation is written and how it is brutally carried out.

    Ide like to ask others here to think and write down just how legislation and or procedure could change to make things fairer for men. A list would be a start. I am quite certain when bad or unfair things stop happening to men and boys they will stop ending their lives by there own hand.

    Dear LukeNZ,,,there is no doubt that in the Family Court susstem more respect should be afforded Men, especially Fathers, Boys needing their Fathers and of course Girls needing their Dads.

    There is sooo muccchhh research already done that proves time and rime again that these kids need the influence of both Parents.

    I have felt, seen and had to stand by and experience my own Son rail roaded out of the Fatherhood of his daughter, it was done by his ex with her every word swallowed by every professional until it was too late, after Oranga Tamariki got involved, even though cracks of light were showing through it was too late for their relationship,,but from the initial stages of this horrific experience it was apparent that no due respect was awarded him as a Father for all of the time he had as her Loving doting Dad,the first whole five years of her life. Factors like the Mother asking of him to look after her for extra time when it suited, how he was always willing to have her at anytime, never feeling used or abused , just happy to have more time with his girl, having her every second weekend to all of a sudden not to see her at all until supervised meetings of one hour were set up, totally unnacceptable, then the length of court time dramatised and the woman growing into her victimhood all the while.
    Like is said here many time Woman = Victim
    Man = Perp… Until separation is met with complete open minds with lawyers only involved if absolutely necessary we are destined to hear more atrocious stories for our Men.

    In fact putting Childrens’ interest first, as the court proposes to do, shows that research is indeed ignored as we all know that continuity of relationships is key.

    @9 You can be an insufferable wanker at times but your heart is in the right place.

    What we’re talking about is unfathomable to the general population.

    You can hide behind your intellectual complexity.

    I prefer to see it as it is.

    A tolerance for insanity, stupidity, and lazyness as normal.
