Election Thoughts 2017

Thu 7th September 2017:

Here are a few thoughts regarding men and father issues this election.

Corrections Policy Called Corrupt

Thu 31st August 2017:

A men’s group has labelled a new policy announced this week by Corrections Minister Louise Upston as “corrupt”. The new policy aims to reduce the likelihood that female criminals will be sent to prison. Spokesman Kerry Bevin for community group The Ministry of Men’s Affairs said the policy was an abandonment of the principle of […]

CYFs more part of the problem than the solution

Thu 24th August 2017:

I have a tale of woe with regards to CYFs (yes I know, not another one) I have been dealing with them for almost 2yrs now and every time they blunder into our path they leave us worse off. My daughter has some complex emotional and mental issues as documented by mental health. The process […]

Virtual Justice

Thu 20th July 2017:

Video links have been used for some time now, within the Justice System, to eliminate minor appearances, for a person in custody. In September the Police arrest process in Central Auckland will be transferred to a new processing unit near Mt Eden Prison. Along with this will come virtual court appearances, where overnight arrests will […]

Attendance at assessment and non-violence program

Wed 14th June 2017:

I am sure some of you have attended these. I myself have attended one some 7 years ago. I will start with a question – what is this about? Let me explain. I have a custody order already allowing supervised access. In the last “programme” I went along (I think it was supposed to be […]

Preventing adolescent relationship abuse and promoting healthy relationships

Sat 3rd June 2017:

Media have given publicity to a NZ Family Violence Clearinghouse paper recently prepared by Dr Melane Beres called “Preventing adolescent relationship abuse and promoting healthy relationships”. The paper is an opinion piece citing various research papers of varying quality in support. This may have been lost on journalists who attributed various statistics to the ‘report’s […]

Police Maintain Routine Sexism

Thu 18th May 2017:

From a correspondent; we changed place names to respect privacy: I picked up a hitch-hiker today even though he had no backpack. He told me his essential reason for needing to hitchhike and I encouraged him to share the rest of his story. I have changed the locations to respect privacy, but nothing else. He […]

Do These Texts Show Partner Abuse?

Mon 15th May 2017:

This was a weird one. The heading was ‘Husband’s shocking texts reveal reality of domestic violence‘. Well we might have missed something but the texts didn’t seem shocking and there was nothing showing domestic violence happening or having happened. Is it we or they who are irrational? Or is it a cynical production of a […]

The genital mutilation then fame story of John and Lorena Bobbitt

Sat 6th May 2017:

John and Lorena repeatedly partook in unethical actions. They seem to be disgusting characters and I have no interest in joining the majority who have apparently decided that one of them is better.

Family Violence Tragedies Will Increase

Fri 28th April 2017:

This Australian tragedy appears to be another example of the pernicious effects of feminism. An 18yo woman attacked and murdered her grandfather because he criticized her mother’s parenting skills. While we don’t know the details of the history etc, you can be sure that part of the picture involved feminist thought patterns demonizing men, beliefs […]

Judge slams Child, Youth and Family for misleading information

Tue 21st March 2017:

Just posted on stuff. Where are the politicos and concerned people that would be up in arms if this happened to a mother….. Judge slams Child, Youth and Family

Here Comes Another Festive Season of Male Denigration

Thu 15th December 2016:

Here comes the festive season, and the NZ Herald is at it again with a new campaign of male-bashing under the heading of ‘family violence’. This week they published a video called ‘Family violence over the festive season: the facts’ but those ‘facts’ were unreferenced, misleading and unbalanced with strong femaleist bias.

Pussywhipped men please apply!

Tue 22nd November 2016:

Not sure how much use this is to you weaklings who read menz.org.nz? Is this meeting going to hit any useful spots, or is it just more irrelevancy? I wonder what the value for money is? (Sorry for my irreverency.) Raising Fathers To Save Our Children!

Is it worth the fight? Updating a parenting plan to reflect actually time in care

Tue 18th October 2016:

Hello All, quick bit of background. I’m the father of a 4.5 y/o girl living in AKL and have been separated from her mother since just after birth. I went through the Family Court back then to get regular visitation as the mother would not allow it. She went as far as accusing me of […]

Ministry of Justice Spreads More Misinformation

Tue 11th October 2016:

The signs are bad for planned law changes concerning family violence. This ‘fact’ sheet produced by our Ministry of Justice safer-sooner-factsheet provided misinformation right from the start by claiming “We have the highest reported intimate partner violence in the world”. That statement is utter nonsense and the NZ Herald recently had to retract the same […]

Wolf Whistling May Soon be a Hate Crime in England

Wed 21st September 2016:

What the F**k is the world coming to?? Are women becoming so protected and so offended by and afraid of the world that a man can not even whistle at one without being charged with a crime. THEY HAVE TO BE JOKING!!!.Needless to say it will happen in NZ sooner or later to. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/07/13/nottinghamshire-police-becomes-first-force-to-record-misogyny-as/

Gulags for NZ Men

Thu 18th August 2016:

Justice Minister Amy Adams and Social Development Minister Anne Tolley this week announced that the government is to provide temporary housing for ‘abusers’ who are ordered out of their own homes through police safety orders and/or protection orders. The reason given is to reduce the likelihood that such ‘abusers’ return to their homes because they […]

The Tide is Turning

Mon 16th May 2016:

The population of NZ is becoming much better informed and aware of the b.s. that has been driving gender relations and law for 5 decades now. Occasional articles are starting to appear using reason and fact to challenge the bias, hyperbole and falsehood spread by feminists. Whereas even five years ago many readers’ comments had […]

‘Mercy’ Sentence for Female Offender

Sun 8th May 2016:

This news article was posted by Kumar as a reply under a recent thread but we agree with Allan Harvey that it deserves its own thread so here it is. A woman planned and attempted to murder her three children and white knight Justice Paul Heath rode to her rescue, going to great lengths to […]

CYF Changes are Mainly Privatization

Fri 8th April 2016:

While it may seem satisfying to see CYF clobbered for failing our children and families, there seems little in the proposed changes that will improve matters. The changes are in line with the National government’s privatization agenda that it has already applied significantly to prisons and schools and is seeping by stealth into health and […]

Men’s High Imprisonment Just Because They’re Bad

Sun 13th March 2016:

The headline item on One News today was about a group of lawyers who asked the Waitangi Tribunal to hear a case that high Maori imprisonment and reimprisonment rates reflect racism. The Tribunal has fast-tracked an urgent hearing to deal with this travesty. The elephant in the room of course is that the difference between […]

Recent Cases Show Feminist Ideology is Unsafe

Fri 26th February 2016:

Recent cases highlight the danger our society, or at least the male half, faces under current approaches to violence. The case of Shona Maiden was one. She gave her false account of events to police and even went to news media with photos of her son cuddling her and appeared on tv with convincing tears […]

If you were arrested would you trust Police or trust a lawyer?

Wed 20th January 2016:

May 3 2014, I was assaulted at 7 am by my former partner. A blindsided whack to the head, then whipped with the cord from her laptop charger before a large wall mirror was swung at me. At 9 am that sunny Saturday morning I was arrested without question- charged with MAF by two policeman […]

Females Can Do No Wrong

Tue 22nd December 2015:

pcObelix asked why the Counties Manukau Police only asked boys to hit a girl in their latest sexist anti-violence initiative. Yeah well they didn’t need to do the exercise with girls. Everyone already knows that males are the only ones who behave badly enough to worry about. ‘Cuckoo’ student who duped teacher into thinking she […]

Boys asked to slap girl….why do not they not try the reverse and see what happens

http://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/367743/family-violence-if-kids-know-its-wrong-you-should-too Second such event…the other one being overseas from earlier on this year. I wonder what would happen if they asked a girl to slap a boy….let’s stop the stereotyping……
