ANZAC 2019

Sun 7th April 2019:

We are increasingly seeing the banner of ANZAC under attack. A subject that’s been raised here several times over recent years, particularly with the 100 year commemorative events being held during 2014 – 2018. It wasn’t our war. For hundreds of years following the collapse of Rome, wars raged in Europe. Backed by religion, land […]


Thu 4th April 2019:

I have often heard New Zealanders described as Humble, Friendly, not too Outspoken, aparantly this country suffers the ‘tall poppy’ syndrome…I dare say the psych of us is changing, evolving. We tend not to laud one another,,until some one dies, then we can be all too all over them. Today on the radio news, the […]

NZ Domestic Violence Dialogue

Tue 2nd April 2019:

It is an obsession. What else can you call it? We’re in the grips of obsession. Here’s an extract from the previous post Crusade For Free Speech Cowie, who wrote a fictionalised account about his bitter custody dispute with his former wife, says he received no reply to his submission, despite indicating he wanted to […]

Crusade for Free Speech

Sun 31st March 2019:

There are many battle fronts when it comes to free speech and the lenses through which it is viewed can be as blinding as they are illuminating. (And I’m sick of losing the updates so I will publish this post then finish it.) In the view of this website it is often seen in the […]

R.I.P. Craig Jackson

Sat 30th March 2019:

We have removed our obituary for Craig due to gross disrespect from a contributor here. Disgusting and upsetting.

The Generation Gap

Thu 28th March 2019:

We get bombarded by these little digital snapshots of life. Many of them have spelling mistakes, obviously unintended double meanings in different cultures, if not subtle political messages drilled into them. Like me, you have probably had enough of these little messages in a square … but some of them can be quite funny, too. […]

Youth Suicide in New Zealand

Sun 24th March 2019:

Youth suicide became a dirty word on this site when the country’s political element decided to use these tragedies to deflect attention from the 50 or so casualties each month who are mostly adult men. That was following their attempts to belittle male deaths by turning attention to female attempts or threats of suicide or […]

Petition against the feminist author Clementine Ford

Sat 23rd March 2019:

I am sure many here know her very well. Clementine Ford Petition link here Please sign and share …. it will take only seconds. 300 signatures were done overnight.


Tue 19th March 2019:

In a previous post CGTOW that post considers a point of view that I assume the majority of readers would relate to. If that was one end of the piece string what would be at the other. I’m not sure myself, so I’m going to pull out a slice of creative writing as starting point. […]

The Christchurch Mosque Massacre and Gun Laws

Sun 17th March 2019:

Some comment is deserved following the horrific Christchurch attack last Friday. Our deep sorrow and sympathy go out to those injured, the families of those killed and all others traumatized in ripple effect.

Men and Climate Change

The news is too distressing today, and it’s Friday. And then I saw this, in relation to our ‘children’s climate change protest’: John McLeod @saurimo44 1h Maybe it’s time 16 yr olds got the vote. They are informed and it’s their future. We haven’t done that well. The merchant of doom. ‘We’ … us men? […]


Thu 14th March 2019:

This recent post MGTOW is a review of Men Going Their Own Way and how that might be now in New Zealand. The acronym only matters to those that write about the subject or those that relate to it. I’m creating a new acronym here but I’ll get to that shortly. First let’s go back […]

The Death of Feminism

Wed 13th March 2019:

Feminism does not like being confronted by facts or reality. Objectivity and truth, without debating the specifics are the realm of progress and unfortunately justice when things don’t go quite right … we’re not perfect. Recently however there’s been a bit of chaos around the place. This mish-mash of Intersectional Feminism and Identity Politics has […]

Bunny-Boilers Built by the Family Court

Tue 12th March 2019:

It was shortly after separation and free counselling was available through the Family Court in those days. Up to six free sessions but this is at end of last century, so, what happens now – I’m not up to date with the latest on what’s available. The counsellors were a couple, running their own independent […]

Hygiene In Public

I walked into the toilets and there was this old guy washing his dick in the handbasin. It had been mentioned to me a couple of days before that there was an old guy using the toilets as his washroom but I didn’t click that it was the tidy old man that pulled up in […]

Dad Jokes

Mon 11th March 2019:

I was reminded of this today when a guy told me a joke. Jamaica $2.30 Babados $2.40 St Kitts $2.50 Naturally I had to ask, what’s this about? “The

Psuedo Academics teaching hands on skills…

Thu 7th March 2019:

There is no doubt people at the top of some of the ‘official’ apprenticeship schemes get paid handsomely, i am sure they do a good job. Although there is an aspect of being “out of date”,… the, pathetic still, wage, paid to an apprentice in his time, a bugbear of mine. However handing over to […]

MGTOW Review

Feminism hasn’t been a consistent beast – it’s evolved through various stages to the now unfathomable Intersectional Feminism . Identity Politics, likewise has changed its definition to its current state of ambiguity. So, in a similar way it’s fair to expect MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) to follow a similar pattern. When the idea […]

Archeological digs on men…

Okay, we love them, we love what they created, who they were, they created history, lauded by many. The times, their time, threw them up and into the public arena. No one knew whether or not they were perfect or flawed but one thing for sure is that they were put on a pedestal, their […]

Dancing With The Black Dog

Wed 6th March 2019:

Link to Purchase In my wander through the net today, I found a post on this little character. This text is copied from the purchase site linked to above. Show anyone with anxiety or depression that it’s ok to say if they don’t feel ok. Visually show anyone suffering from anxiety or depression that “it’s […]

Protection Orders and how much Protection do they offer with digital age

Mon 4th March 2019:

Hi Everyone and have just joined as looking for advise regarding protection orders. After a 2 day hearing I got a Protection Order against my ex wife which covers my new Fiancée, 2 children in my care aged 12 & 10 & myself. Before this my ex had been very aggressive which resulted in a […]

Program-and-Registration From the Co-ordinators – Men’s Summit Men’s Summit Goes South The New Zealand Men’s Summit 2019 is going south this year to Otago University Rugby clubrooms in Dunedin on Friday 12 April. It’s time to recognise the male contribution to society as Men Matter Too. Following successful Men’s Summits in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland, […]

Domestic Bliss

Wed 27th February 2019:

Anyone who has been in a long term relationship understands the complications, and the sometimes delicate peace. There is, what we now call the flick-chick – expect an unpredictable launch at any time. Now, any good MGTOW will tell you, the first time it happens, RUN! … and don’t look back! There’s other more delicate […]
