Surviving a Sexual Prosecution in 21st Century Salem

Criminal defence lawyer Samira Taghavi has published an article on The Daily Blog, outlining the concerns about the proposed Sexual Violence Bill felt by many in the legal profession.

New Family Court (Supporting Children in Court) Legislation Bill – Now only one reading away from becoming law.

Tue 22nd June 2021:

In a lot of cases children who want to see dad, they will have their say. That being said, lets get down to the real world. The worlds most cunning animal is the human. To head the above scenario off, a woman need only alienate the child before lawyer for child gets to interview the […]

False MAF charge aftermath

Tue 24th December 2019:

Having spent 3 years in a relationship with someone (and having a child together) only to find that you have been accused of assault after separation can be rough. Having met my ex-partner while working as a teacher, we fell in love very quickly. The relationship was a wirlwind of ups and downs but that’s […]

Reconciliation after seperation

Sun 15th December 2019:

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has experience with reconciling with their wife after seperation – following involvement with Oranga Tamariki (now discharged) and where the Father has full custody and a parental order for the Mother’s contact? I’m wondering where to from here and if it’s feasible from a judge and lawyer for […]

Peter Ellis gets another appeal

Thu 1st August 2019:

Felicity was interviewed on Morning Report today about the forthcoming appeal by Peter Ellis. She says: “Basing a conviction purely on a child’s testimony, particularly when there has been a number of suggestive interviews that have taken place, is incredibly unsafe…not just for the person who gets wrongly convicted – it is incredibly damaging for […]

How to scam the NZ immigration system if you are a woman

Mon 18th February 2019:

A letter via the MENZ contact form. A lesson on how to use WordPress anonymously is probably not what this man needs right now, so I’m posting this on his behalf in the hope he might gain some useful response. His letter is one of the clearest expositions of how women on temporary visas are […]

Grace Millane Tragedy Exploited by Feminists

Sat 15th December 2018:

Our heartfelt empathy goes out to the family and associates of Grace Millane. Losing one’s child must be one of the most traumatic experiences humans can face. The unpleasant circumstances of Grace’s case can only serve to increase the pain and devastation. Much of the NZ population has experienced deep sadness, shame and anger. Grace […]

Whenever you look you will find in the news media many examples of discrimination against men. Let’s look at some recent ones.

Ardern and Little Don’t Want to be Unfair

Sat 24th November 2018:

Aw, isn’t that nice, our government doesn’t want to be unfair! Of course, that doesn’t apply to any of the many men treated unfairly on the basis of false allegations especially in the Family Court, or the many men whose hard-earned assets are plundered courtesy of our ‘relationship property’ law, or the many men having […]

‘Snapped’ tv series worth a watch

Sun 18th November 2018:

‘Snapped’ is an interesting tv series shown on the free-to-air ‘Bravo’ channel. Although suffering from American production style with too much repetition, it’s quite well done in general, not too hyped up, very factual, including real footage of police interviews and detailed descriptions of the police investigations and evidential developments. The series focuses on murders […]

Greedy Thief is a Strong Female Lead

This was done as a comment to an historical post here but deserves its own current post. This article describes further developments regarding the ‘accidental millionaire’ case described in the 2011 post on MENZ Issues that provided a snapshot of then current evidence for the operation of a ‘pussy pass’. The pussy passes for the […]

Abortion at a Woman’s Whim

Sat 10th November 2018:

Abortion tends to become an endless moral debate and this has previously been discouraged here. However, recent proposals by the NZ Law Commission deserve some consideration of this matter and its relevance to men. The Law Commission has long been a feminist force forwarding the exploitation and harming of men. In addition to their proposal […]

Submissions and concerted action about Crown accountability

Sun 4th November 2018:

I know this site has some great minds and maybe a few retired people that can dedicate a substantial amount of time for the benefit of others. I think, in my not so humbled mind that what we need is a dedicated working group to offer submissions on all things affecting the population of NZ. […]

( only one named mama could get away with a post like this here,,so here goes) I was talking with people the other day about the great need to look after yourself when you get caught up in the system. Some people will not have the luxury of time to find wisdom and they need […]

Court Favouritism Towards Females

While over the last year or two there have been some cases in which women were sentenced comparably to men, that remains a rare exception. Here’s a case in the news today. Compare that with this very similar case in which it was a father who responded to his child’s bully with a mild physical […]
