Adam’s Christmas present to Eve

Fri 18th December 2015:

Stop right there. It’s not a religious post. I know how much some of you detest … the slightest incandescence … of religion gracing the texts of this site but I can’t help seeing the humour in the fact that our current Women’s Minister has the surname Adams. Before I go any further, I’d like […]

Male Denigration, Attack on MoMA and Child Development

When a suggestion was made that Mr M-W stop denigrating the male […]

Media Keep Pushing Feminist Propaganda

Sun 6th December 2015:

NZ news media carry a lot of responsibility for promoting anti-male sexism and for making it extremely difficult for men to influence public opinion with reason or facts. Yesterday’s NZ Herald carried several stories in which bad behaviour by men towards women was emphasized in gender-specific headlines. While those stories involved bad events likely to […]

A New Low in Domestic Violence Fraud

Thu 3rd December 2015:

An artist who is either a white knight feminist propaganda supporter or simply sees an opportunity to cash in on fashionable feminism has changed photos of female celebrities to make them look injured through partner violence. The artist appears to subscribe to the strange morality that violence towards women is the only violence worth being […]

Yet Another Homicide Provoked by a Protection Order

Wed 25th November 2015:

We have long predicted that protection orders will increase risk for applicants, and there have now been numerous examples of partner homicides that probably would never have occurred if there had been no protection order.

Trust in professionals

Thu 15th October 2015:

I have often commented about my views on the professionalism and skills of the peoples working in familycaught$. Although occasionally complimentary, most of my comments suggest that there might be room for improvement. My views are only those of a poor axe murderer, so I have little social credibility for my poor judgements. I have […]

‘Lorde’ just another man-hating bitch

Thu 1st October 2015:

For those men like us who have celebrated Lorde’s spectacular rise to fame and fortune, consider her latest music video.

MRA Perspectives on Recent Events

1. Michael Murray sentenced to life for murder of Connor Morris It’s difficult to imagine anything more provocative than seeing a P-addled gang member bashing the shit out of your brother with the real possibility of death or permanent brain damage.

It’s so easy to get political change? DV

Wed 3rd June 2015:

Greg Andresen, of Men’s Health Australia, is a persistent and sharp political operator. I have heard many men in NZ complain “Why doesn’t someone [else?] talk to the politicians and get everything sorted out?”.
