In my opinion, news reporters Alison Mau and Simon Plumb are male mental health abusers.

It does not take much to destroy a reputation and career. No trial, no defence. News media and social media are the usual tools. Especially if you are a known celebrity, politician. There are no checks and balances.

They run their own public trial and pay no attention to the damage they cause on hearsay. Kind of an automatic one-stop shop judge, jury and executioner.
Absolute total destruction of his career, his livelihood, reputation and family. His ability to earn and pay his way in this world.

Hey Alison and Simon, what are your options when your victim self-harms? Unsure if the man has children. If he does, what are you going to say to them? Will you be able to house them? Care and provide for them as a loving father would?
There is no place in this world for people who put other people in a place of hopelessness.

The usual verdict is, he was struggling with his mental health and took his own life.

Allegations are simply that until proven by professionals and not media trials.

This nonsense should not be left to the wild west media, it should be law. In Ireland, there is a law that prevents any allegation of a sexual nature until a guilty verdict is reached.

With our extremely high levels of male suicide, why does the New Zealand government continue to allow mental health abuses to destroy men without due process?


  1. No suprises here. I would stay away from them. Do not
    listen or give them the clicks they need to survive.
    Seriously I read their twitters and it wrecks of
    nasty petty teenage schoolyard bullying. They really
    are awful people. Good to see they do not have as
    much of a platform that they once had.

  2. Obviously she is an author, that I have read.
    So I am guilty, of giving her some clicks.
    Certainly if a man is accused, she believes it.

    I listened to an argument, about consequences.
    How if you lie, then inevitably there’s a correction.
    At some point, you must deal with the lie in some way.

    Depp vs The Sun, looks very dodgy even for the judge.
    How many others, helped to persecute Depp.
    How many authors and presenters, face the need to apologise.

    Will Depp still suffer mentally, being called an abuser.
    I doubt he will as he got a fair chance, to show otherwise.
    Strangely I do worry, for Heards mental health in the end.

    So I don’t blame the author, humans are naturals at persecution.
    Also part of evolution, as it weeds out the flawed.
    The author is just very selective, her target of criticism being men.

  3. @djward I think nature weeds out those that are
    isolated and without any kind of support network or
    structure. Generally, these abusers as the article mentiond
    and is astoundingly correct are anti-human, anti-life

    When these abusers have large platforms and they
    can influence policies and governing decisions
    that is the end of a nation state. The death of
    nation state, sovereign nation, perhaps the rebirth
    of something new, or all hell will break lose.
    As we see daily what the destruction and disolution of
    the family unit looks like, ram raids is just the
    tip of the iceberg.

  4. I agree that society, has significant problems.
    But they argue in stories, that the offender gets justice.
    We may ask the same, of ram raiders.
    We could start labelling, all sorts of abusers for justice.

    So everyone, asks for more justice.
    You can easily create laws, to imprison anybody.
    What law would you make, yet not fix the cause.

    Fatherless boys everywhere, inevitably has consequences.
    They get together, and examine how society will treat them.
    Yet learnt nothing in life, of how they must treat society.

    The girls just as bad, and far from emotionally stable.
    I doubt they offer little to the boys, but the same fatherhood to them.
    Supported by the state, at every single step.
    It’s hard for boys to respect someone, who can do so much harm.

    While Mau persecutes for MeToo, and not need a courtroom.
    Are not the boys aware, they are targets for stories but not girls.
    While they hunt down, the occasional prey for her cause.
    Nothing is reported, society kept ignorant of the stories actual cause.

    Half the population has no MeToo, for things done to them.
    So inevitably, the problem can’t be fixed.
    Media actually powerless, to change things.
    If they couldn’t cope with Jordan Peterson, I’m easily out of bounds.

  5. @djward ‘Half the population has no MeToo, for things done to them.
    So inevitably, the problem can’t be fixed.
    Media actually powerless, to change things.
    If they couldn’t cope with Jordan Peterson, I’m easily out of bounds’

    That is the most insightful paragraph I have read
    for a very long time. After listening to talkback,
    reading mainstream media, governing bodies, and many
    other media outlets. Not many will say anything nearly
    remotely fair and unbiased. Instead of collectively
    taking responsibilty for all the garbage in this world
    we pass the buck or pay thr blame game. Nothing
    gets resolved then rinse and repeat, same issues come
    around again the next day. You will never hear
    Alison Mau or her ilk ever take responsibilty, even
    if it is just a tiny bit for the damage she has done. I
    will take responsibilty and at least try to be
    a better person. Thats all that one can do.

    I would really like to see a collective effort
    trying to reduce stress and overall suffering. It
    is certainly a collective effort, websites like
    these need 100s more comments and discussions for more
    discussion around local issues. The whole population
    needs to take accountability for everything, period,
    including myself.

  6. Note that TVNZ have announced publicly that if any applicant for a job with them had accusations made of this kind (i.e. by women about ‘inappropriate behaviour’) then they would be immediately removed from consideration for the job. So TVNZ has no interest in fairness, justice or treating someone as innocent until proven guilty. TVNZ is happy to provide women with a convenient weapon guaranteed to damage the career of any man out of envy, hatred or any other motivation.

    Note also that in this case, as in most other similar cases, vague terms such as ‘inappropriate behaviour’, ‘inappropriate emails’ etc are used but few specifics are provided to enable people to make their own evaluation.

    In this case some details were provided that Mr Santamaria informed one or more women he found them attractive. Is that inappropriate? There appeared to be no rudeness in the communication, no pressure for the woman to do anything or threats if she didn’t. Is a genuine expression of affection harassment in itself? Only if done by a man it seems.

    Note also that there is no mention that the women who are said to have complained ever told Mr Santamaria that they were uncomfortable with his communication. No, just go straight to management and leak matters to other media to cause as much damage as possible to yet another man foolish enough to believe a women might treat him in good faith.

  7. Poor guy found a woman attractive, and made a move.
    Mr Plumb even wrote it all down, in an article.
    Demanding TVNZ act, against nothing illegal.
    Unless a kiss, is a life destroying crime.

    His employer, did the correct thing.
    They told him to stop, and he avoided her completely.
    Now every job seeker, must be audited.
    If they are not human with male desire, they may apply.

    Men will be audited, for feminist compliance.
    A single mention of men’s rights, there banned.
    A single mention of female predators, there banned.
    Soon only pussy whipped men, will work at TVNZ.

    By what I see, it’s happening now.

    Comment by DJ Ward — Thu 2nd June 2022 @ 4:53 pm

  8. Actually that deserves a confession, for my derogatory term.
    As in my household, my partner is definitely the boss.
    So the term, also is relevant to myself.

    But for me it’s my nature, to generally do what I’m told.
    She drew a short straw, with some male traits however.
    So despite my failings, the balance is about right.

    I suspect many households, are the same.

  9. @7 djward. TVNZ, some names definitely come to mind when I think of men that are biased and almost self loathing. I can think of a recent example where this person I am thinking of was told about ‘international mens day’ and the fact that there was not one. He doubled down and played into the victim narrative that only women deserve such recognition ie ‘international womens day’. Very disappointing and I cannot really be bothered listening to such rubbish anymore. Much better things to do. Much better people to listen to and spend time with. I am predicting a massive drop in ratings for tvnz unless they pick up their qct and be more inclusive and interesting. Very boring.

  10. It seems in the TVNZ case, the male did something else.
    We don’t know what, but it created a complaint.
    Someone at TVNZ, then told a lie about the case.

    I do wonder, if the event is similar.
    Him making a move, but getting it wrong.
    A serious crime in NZ, needing investigations.

    So they do have a reason, to examine the lie.
    As there’s no arrest, I doubt they investigate a crime.
    Would saying the correct thing, change there articles.

    “For privacy reasons, we can’t say anything.
    We are investigating an event, and must wait before comment”

    Outrage would follow, for protecting the offender.
    What others are at risk, if we don’t know who it is.
    Like Depp the article writers, will prevent him from working.

    We are yet to find out, if the drama is warranted.

  11. Sigh, I read this.–kamahl-santamarias-former-cohost-tells-of-years-of-harassment

    In summary, what he did is actually is not that bad.
    He hasn’t done anything, that looks like a sex offender.
    At worst, he is easily over friendly.

    Kissing on the cheek, is a greeting.
    It’s not something I do, but people do it to me.
    In some culture, it is normal as a greeting.
    I cannot make the leap, to think I’m a victim.

    And as it points out, she had jokes and comments to.
    We harshly judge his, but celebrate hers.

    “As good friends, we would share personal and intimate stories, and I never believed Leah found them to be offensive. There was one intimate story I told her which she would actually reference and joke about herself on occasions, apropos of nothing.”

    It gets worse, the thing they accuse him of but do themselves.

    “How could someone I enjoyed working with continue to say things about my body and love life and family?”

    If I’m not mistaken, that’s what the author does.
    Actually, every human does it to others.
    And the victim, that’s the whole story confessed.
    And it’s a big long story, with nothing shocking to say.

    I was hoping for the, that’s a very wrong thing to do.
    Then again she admitted, she would MeToo him.

  12. This is a good read, if your interested in misogyny.

    Geez, look how made up the offence is.

    “a reporter chose to ask whether the PMs were meeting “just because – you know – you’re similar in age and you’ve got a lot of – you know – common stuff there…””

    So technically, nothing was actually misogynistic.
    The reader makes up the conclusion, it’s about women.
    And somehow questions about women, are offensive.
    How can you say, this is misogyny.

    ““I wonder if anyone ever asked Barack Obama and John Key if they met because they were a similar age,” she retorted.”

    So technically, nothings misogynistic again.
    Thousands of meetings happen, between lots of leaders.
    They can be gender neutral, both women or both men.
    How can naming one of those events, be misogyny.

    “failing to mention all the times his own news company had aimed that kind of “unashamed, casual sexism” at Ardern.”

    What was this, unashamed casual sexism.
    If technically, it’s not really happening.
    No reporter, can now ask questions.
    Opinion writers, can now just imagine offending.

    “And that’s my point. Misogyny has been baked into our society over generations, and we are all susceptible to this kind of nonsense if we don’t stop and think about the implications first.”

    What nonsense, what implications.
    Can women not be asked questions, about being women.

  13. fyi Alison Maus story from a year ago has been debunked by the man she wrote about

    Comment by Charlie — Sun 13th August 2023 @ 11:25 am

  14. I find it interesting, I didn’t hear or see anything like it.
    Somehow his story, never got told.
    By all the outrage, I thought a crime was committed.
    An unsolicited groping, a forceful kiss or anything.
    What the hell happened, for the outcome for this man.
    Because he is not defending, there is no accusation.

    Look how easily a feminist, can ruin men’s lives.
    One after the other, look at the outcomes.
    Thank you Charlie, your link is excellent for the conversation.

    Comment by DJ Ward — Mon 14th August 2023 @ 6:41 pm

  15. Youre welcome DJ. It’s important people see these things. And I don’t think Mau has even acknolwedged that her lies have been exposed.
    And now Plumb is still going after him, even after he put out a statement about how TVNZ screwed him.
    They report what they want.
