Concerned About Men Meeting – Saturday 3rd November

Fri 21st September 2018:

I’m new to this forum but on looking through past threads the expression “couldn’t organise a piss-up in a brewery” comes to mind. Last year there was supposed to be a meeting in Auckland on the 4 November about which there were many, many, many comments but as I understand it no action. So… There […]

125 Years of Feminist Stupidity

Wed 19th September 2018:

No apologetic opening statement. Today we will be subjected to the insufferable mouth pieces of New Zealand Feminism and who knows what that might produce. When you see it out there, or if it infests your ears, comment and link to it here. The bottom line … Something like a hot-line, for those suffering total […]

Summer Times is Time for a Concert,.. surely?

Tue 18th September 2018:

Long Summer nights in the City, we get to invite the bridge and rough sleeper guys, maybe the sallies will come, It’ll be like the seventies or at least a little bit West Side ( without the boozie allnighters of course ).. Why not organise a concert to raise awareness and money for the cause, […]

Timeline for Men to catch up

Each time a new voice appears in the room it is often without any knowledge of what has happened before their arrival. There is always the awakening that history is part of where ever we are now. There is often some distance between personal views and opinions and respective actions. We could create a Timeline […]

The Relationship Killer

Wed 12th September 2018:

It’s the BIG,,, the BAD,,,,it’s RESENTMENT! # and it tends to stem from, #- What we feel someone did to us which was unnecessary mean or hurtful #- What someone did not do for us #- How we feel when someone has not done enough for us I do not know too many men who […]


I read in a magazine the other day, in an article about Dads and his qualities,, it said….’.Remember,, you wouldn’t BE a dad if it wasn’t for your kids mum!’ Yes I think sexual education is an issue after all…unfortunately babies are being confused with welfare.

Business to pay extra leave to Victims…

Jan Logies’ Bill has passed, 10 days leave for domestic violence victims,,, as a previous employer in small business, I would baulk at the possibility of taking on a lady of that age for fear of becoming embroiled in her domestic problems, no one is ever going to see the other side of the story […]

Young Men, Mature Ladies..,,the trouble with it…

Tue 11th September 2018:

We talk about the lack of marrying kind gals,,, and there does seem to be a lack of them in my area of South Auckland, at least for the young men I know, two of my sons best friends, another friend in common, my own son and two of my nephews whom live in the […]


Our Modern Plunket Plunket in my view was a organization to help mothers, not one that I viewed as a child watch dog. In an internal Plunket document obtained by RNZ, the child welfare group said there could be fewer home visits and parents might have to travel further to clinics if they had the […]

Sex Offender Walks Free

This story from Australia A former female staff member of a prestigious school has walked from court after being handed an “extraordinarily lenient” suspended jail sentence for having sex with five male students in her care. NSW District Court acting judge Christopher Armitage said a “toxic culture” had developed in The Armidale School boarding house […]


Mon 10th September 2018:

Is it possible that Man pushed too far to keep Woman from burgeoning ever forward…and if so are Woman now not doing exactly the same thing…but worse.. Is this revenge????

The use of Affidavits in Family Court

Thu 6th September 2018:

I do not think that the use of the affidavit is necessarily a good thing. You take a couple that have split, family is separated from the man, the women generally has rights over the children and she does not want to communicate. Then she gets to release her bowels on paper, causing yet more […]


Mon 3rd September 2018:

I THINK NOT….There is far toooo much to say, and some of you guys, have seen and said sooo much. FAMILY COURT NZ… Please do not treat all Men as violent, they are Fathers, Brothers, Sons, Uncles, Tax Payers and People. Please be eloquent in your approach to a family situation and uphold the respect […]

The Suicide Debate

Sat 1st September 2018:

We knew it was bad, but not how bad. Then the whispers started; four times as many men as women. The Clark Ministry wouldn’t be budged on making the figures public. Perhaps the previous government hadn’t been any better – I don’t know. More than fifteen years ago we obtained by dubious means, the most […]


Thu 30th August 2018:

It has been too long since I have seen my son. He went missing in action, taken down one of those black holes you guys talk about here. It wasn’t that is was okay for him to stop, it was necessary. We have sayings like cruel to be kind and for greater good, it happens […]

I hear they’re refurbishing the Beehive Bunker?

What for I wonder?.. certainly not for Jacindas’ new wardrobe. Can’t be the Taupo caldera, certainly not the out of control riots in the streets. or maybe the spy centre from hell for all the 6000 kiddies in foster care out there. for the hidden statistics or Paulas’ mouldy biscuits.

A GUIDE TO COURT-SHIP…but not as we knew it..

Wed 29th August 2018:

used to be that a man could be the suitor is he now the suitee used to be going steady now just going no where used to be love and romance could be a noose around your neck used to be a coming together of the sexes now only ending in senseless vexes used to […]

Lest We Forget

It was just a little scrap of recent news; the history department complaining about the reduction in funding for that department but it made the news. Somebody thought it important and contacted the media, and somebody else thought it important enough to print the story, and in our ideologically driven institutes of learning, perhaps it […]

Homeless Men

Mon 27th August 2018:

They are out there. There is a constant string of media reports highlighting this growing problem. Just how growing is the problem? How many are taken off the streets only through the benevolence of charity organizations? Having seen a map produced by Stuff News I was surprised to see homeless people showing up outside of […]

Check Out Another Damned Pussy Pass

Sat 25th August 2018:

How long are we to endure this ridiculous double standard in our criminal justice system? Here’s a violent woman who seriously injured two other women after punching a man. She wan’t even charged for hitting the man! If a man had hit a woman in exactly the same circumstances he would certainly have been charged […]

FamilyJusticeReforms FamilyJusticeReforms Hi any one and every one,,,,,join in the conversation,, these guys want submissions from any one that has had experience with the system. I have just received an email thanking me for my email/submission and they have asked me to answer some more specific questions in due course. Im my submission I […]

Mental Health at Work

Thu 23rd August 2018:

Listen to Podcast Geoff McDonald talking about ‘Mental ill-Health’ in the workplace. This is a very far reaching cross section of the subject from an HR CEO point of view in a large corporate enterprise. Certainly of interest to the old crew will be our recognition of the same thing at the grass roots level […]

Canadian Family Court Advice Comes to New Zealand

RNZ Calls for reform of the family court system and the need for more resources are being backed by a prominent international expert on legal issues related to children and families in the justice system. Professor Nicholas Bala from Canada’s Queen’s Law School says while family dispute resolution works in many cases, much better resources […]

Greg Boyed

Wed 22nd August 2018:

TVNZ news presenter Greg Boyed, 48, has died in Europe. He had been battling depression, his family says. Sad for any family and the upfront honestly is something we seldom see in the media. It is an interesting intersection; I have no doubt many will be observing the response from within the media alongside the […]

Humanity and its Technological Drop Out

Fri 17th August 2018:

The seventies were a time that had humans rally for humanity. There was no technology driven communication being used by the masses but it seemed that hoards of people were coming together for a common concern..hee hee and lucky for them music was abound and the quality would become classic…ahhh… and I guess we have […]
