Does anyone know how many mens DV shelters there are in NZ…say compared to womens DV shelters? I realise they are grossly under represented but would like to find out exactly what the figures are, and where the information can be sourced. Additionally would be useful to have an idea of what kind of comparative […]

New Bill put forward by the Greens (Jan Logie MP), and it’s passing appears to be imminent: Jan Logie states “The bill would extend leave provisions to include domestic violence leave as when women leave a violent situation it can be very hard for them to juggle court, counselling, housing and the needs of their […]
TV3 The Project yesterday had a sympathy based item about how men have it so easy after separation and women need more Government supports with no strings attached.

Ideas from the Fathering Forum 2006 [Authors name not included, due to possible privacy issues.] This document was salient in 2006. In the years that have gone by, I believe that it is just as salient today. I guess some progress has been made in some areas, but nothing like what should have been. In […]

Hi there. My name is Thomas Francis Knudsen. I took a plea deal after 13 months of maintaining a not guilty plea. The straw that broke the camels back was that I ended up in Wellington prison among some unsavory characters where I was threatened with getting beaten up almost immediately upon arrival from a […]
Please help, my daughter is being forced to unsafe and abusive visits with my ex. My daughter is 11 and lives with my partner and I full-time. The Interim Parenting Order states my ex is allowed supervised visits only. This is because my ex wilfully breached a trespass order and attacked me. My ex was […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 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.
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!
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 […]
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 […]
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/
