Failing Boys

Tue 17th July 2018:

An honest question that I hope will create some discussion. Is society’s failure of boys is evidence of sexism against males? If boys are so easy to raise, why are we so shit at it? If as I suspect they require the same attention girls do, does the fact we give them less reflect the […]

About Feminism

Fri 13th July 2018:

For the average bloke it’s about the monkey on your back and how to get rid of it. When it comes to making some sense of Feminism perhaps the first reasonable answer that identifies with your circumstances and the way it has affected you is sufficient. But when it comes to change within Feminism

Laud the Innovators ..can we?

Thu 12th July 2018:

Phil and Anthony Butler and their x-ray machine MARZ… wowee.

Russell McVeagh – Woman decide to side step due process, sully a law firm and are surprised when it didn’t work.

New Story Here What has happened here is a bunch of woman thought they would arrange a protest and somehow engineer Dame Margaret Bazley to investigate and write a review on the conduct of two unnamed lawyers and shame a legal firm for having boozy parties. It turns out to what appears to be at […]

Radio NZ promotes Clementine Ford

Wed 11th July 2018:

It seems Radio NZ is happy to give their support to radical feminist and man hater Clementine Ford ( The RNZ discussion gives her free forum and unchallenged air time to promote her new man bashing book, and her feminist assertions that toxic masculinity is rife. It can be found at Anyone in media […]

No Basis for a 50/50 partnership…

Tue 10th July 2018:

I have to say I have not seen any basis for a 50/50 partnership, if up to women , with immediacy, on the running of our planet. In any case how would this be possible, maybe communism could get in vogue and we could start new schools rolling out 50/50 engineers, airline pilots, car mechanics, […]

A Hero – The Glorious Click-bait

Mon 9th July 2018:

In a land far far away a man steps out of his daily life into international limelight and heroism, as he attempts to rescue 12 boys and their unfortunate coach. Doctor, Diver, Risk-taker, Survivor. The story is enlarged, and highlighted as with other big stories on

Disrespect for Free Speech

Sun 8th July 2018:

Free speech, a prerequisite for democracy, is under attack by the self-proclaimed ‘social justice’ warriors. In this last week we have seen two appalling examples of disrespect for free speech.

Social Intimidation of Young Men

Fri 6th July 2018:

Boys, you look at each one as they come along and question how well they are making the step up to young man. Given the numbers that would now rely on a mother whose primary concern is how he might treat a future partner rather than how he might survive in the world and the […]

Google Custom Search

As a frequent user of this site function I am noticing a change in the results returned. Simply put, it is returning a scrambled bunch of results avoiding the search criteria. I can use Google independently and that search will produce what I know is there as the first match.

Principal Family Court Judge Retires

Tue 3rd July 2018:

The country’s principal family court judge will retire next month after 22 years on the bench.

Domestic Violence Workplace Policy

Mon 2nd July 2018:

Haven’t they been working hard on this. Jan Logie’s Bill is just the legal trimmings. Behind the scenes the Human Rights Commission has been busy producing a major media platform to launch with it. The loop includes known Feminists groups such as Shine and Women’s Refuge. There is also a link into a Government data […]

The Modern Addictions

Sun 1st July 2018:

Sitting quietly in the suburbs is a retired 60 something woman who calls herself a gamer. Perhaps a little unusual to see a woman of that age with such a high degree of familiarity with technology and the net, and she is retired, so is it an addiction and does it matter? For her (and […]

Jarrod Ramos and the Capital Gazette Newspaper

Sat 30th June 2018:

It’s unbelievably terrible and totally unacceptable for someone to commit murder, or indeed to ‘take the law into his own hands’ through violent retribution of any kind. Our compassionate thoughts go out to the families, associates and communities of the murdered employees of the Capital Gazette in Maryland, U.S. and to those injured and terrorized […]

IRD System in Crisis

Wed 27th June 2018:

Accountants have gone to the media to highlight the failing computer system at IRD. They do not mention child support as a specific issue and it may not be part of the same computer system. Is anyone experiencing online issues trying to sort out child support?

MeToo Hysteria hits New Zealand

Tue 26th June 2018:

New Zealand may never be the same again. No, it’s not an update on the Prime Minister’s baby. The breaking news this morning;

Labour Youth Camp

The breaking news this morning; A 20 year old man is facing charges in relation to a Labour Youth Camp at Waihi. As the matter is now before the courts I’ll keep this post brief but it is available for comments. Copied from Stuff News: The arrest came after allegations the man sexually assaulted four teenagers, all […]

Ministry for Boys and Men

Mon 25th June 2018:

There is a ministry for every thing and everyone in this country. Even for sheep, cows and manure. I want to setup a party for men and boys. Or at least a ministry for men. How can we achieve that?

Propensity Evidence

Fri 22nd June 2018:

In what seems to be a recent development to increase the rate of conviction for men accused of sexual crimes, prosecutions are allowed to use innovative forms of ‘propensity evidence’. A couple of recent cases, ‘Auckland builder jailed for rape…’ and ‘West Auckland man jailed for sexual assault…’ have allowed complainants from previous acquittals to […]

Foetal Drug Issues

Foetal Alcohol Syndrome became a recognisable problem and while this remains an issue for pregnant women we may be on the cusp of a much larger problem. These are issues that I don’t have any great understanding of so I’m writing generally about recently expressed concerns that prompt this post as I can see the […]

The Male Crisis

Mon 18th June 2018:

Is that possible? Could we reach a point where the anti-male hysteria drives a society, a whole country, especially a small country like New Zealand into the crisis zone? How many years ago did we start to raise issues like, Fatherlessness The possible effects on children How many issues saw no acknowledgement because

Male Post Natal Depression

Fri 15th June 2018:

Dad does a runner This is a far more complicated story than what first appeared. I thought it was worth posting as it appears to include a blended family situation, parental leave issues, but also support issues for fathers. How would you have coped in this situation? Depressed women in my experience do the same […]

Rose McGowan leaves birthday wishes for Harvey Weinstein

Wed 13th June 2018:

Hard to tell if she is acting or not. Anyway. Just wondered how on earth can Harvey get a fair trial with all shows and media interviews before a trial even begins. Rose Weinstein said at the end of the view. “We Win”. That part I agree she has won already. No need for a […]

The Analysis

Correct me if I’m wrong but I think it was JP who announced late last year that, “Some of us are getting a bit long in the tooth.” And there’re veterans here, 20-25 years that I can see – any 30 year voices still out there? Yesterday, somehow I found myself in the MENZ archives […]
