Recent Cases Show Feminist Ideology is Unsafe

Fri 26th February 2016:

Recent cases highlight the danger our society, or at least the male half, faces under current approaches to violence. The case of Shona Maiden was one. She gave her false account of events to police and even went to news media with photos of her son cuddling her and appeared on tv with convincing tears […]

Another Pussy Pass –

Mon 8th February 2016:

Female teacher sex with pupil The most telling piece in the whole article The woman, whom the Otago Daily Times has decided not to name, could not be reached yesterday. I wonder if the ODT’s stance would have been the same if it was a male teacher with a student.

Easily forgotten – Disadvantaged Groups & Important Thanks

Sun 6th December 2015:

I was listening to a group of people talking about the difficulties to obtain support for a charity, that gives them support. I had heard similar discussions on several occasions, over several months. After hearing the same type of conversation for the 4th time, it really hit me how harsh their situation was and how […]

MP Dr Yang Extends the Witch Hunt

Thu 3rd December 2015:

The witch hunt against sex offenders is a significant part of the wider war against men. Of course it’s important to protect children (and adults) from sexual violence and exploitation and to punish those who disobey relevant laws. However, we have increased punishment to disproportionate levels so that gentle illegal sexual touching is now often […]

The Pussy Pass Remains Alive and Well

Fri 27th November 2015:

While we have more recently seen occasional examples in which female offenders were given sentences comparable to those given to males, the pussy pass is still evident in most cases. This female manager behaved violently towards a subordinate, then repeatedly boasted about and celebrated her violent bullying on social media. She was found guilty of […]

Media may be recognising the public mood

Sun 25th October 2015:

This editorial from the Herald on Sunday expresses criticism of Welsh police handling of an allegation against Mils Muliaina, in a rare departure from our media’s usual white knight feminist propaganda. It deserves some supportive comments we think. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=466&objectid=11534663

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 […]

New book: Murder that wasn’t

Tue 27th January 2015:

George Gwaze made legal history in NZ when he was tried for murder a second time on the same evidence, after the Supreme Court ruled that double jeopardy does not apply until all appeals have been exhausted. Both juries acquitted him. A DSAC doctor wrongly concluded that Gwaze’s niece Charlene was analy raped then suffocated, […]

Quality of the Decisions made in Preparing the Domestic Violence Act

Sun 2nd November 2014:

It is important to look back and see the quality of the decisions made in preparing the Domestic Violence Act. Those who don’t know history, are forever doomed to keep repeating it………… (Think Big, DV Act, Building Act, these alone total $100 billions of opportunity wasted and social self harm.) The act was prepared based […]

Call to people caring for families involved with CYFS

Thu 16th October 2014:

Perhaps the main highlight of this website “MENZ’, for me, was the connection to men caring about families dealing with Child, Youth and Family Services aka CYFS.

Who’s Lying, Who’s Self-Justifying? Origins of the He Said/She Said Gap in Sexual Allegations

Wed 17th September 2014:

The Woody Allen sex scandal of 2013 triggered a national conversation on who to believe, with people lining up on each side as if they knew what really happened. Based on recent research on how people navigate the often tricky waters of sexual negotiation, Dr. Carol Tavris shows that it is entirely possible in some […]

Police abuse ‘No smacking law”

Mon 25th August 2014:

You see someone doing something excellent for people and then you see them hurting people ….. which matters to you?

The Marlborough Express – A Paper with a Backbone

Tue 15th July 2014:

The Marlborough Express has today released an opinion piece that reveals just what’s at stake with regards to the Labour Party’s proposed changes to the our justice system. It’s refreshing to a see a newspaper refuse to be a dead fish in a populist tide. If you have a Stuff account, be sure to leave […]

Rolf Harris Assassination By Long Prison Sentence Seen As Obligation

Sat 5th July 2014:

This site has strangely been silent over the fate of Mr Harris. Even if Rolf has taken advantage of girls under the age of consent, is 5 years and 9 months a fair and right sentence for an 86 year old man and his 20 to 50 year old historical crime?

Child Neglect – The Bomb in the Brain

Sat 31st May 2014:

As a country, NZ does need to address the protection of several hundreds of thousands of children. Their happiness is seriously being disadvantaged, their ability to manage and organise their lives is compromised and their ability to take up education is being wasted by missing the opportunity to have a proper developing upbringing.

Quality of Care Standard for Children

Mon 26th May 2014:

Although children in NZ are “protected”, it isn’t to any specified Quality of Care. On the basis that no real duty of care is required for children, the NZ Government slipped off the hook for any accountability at all! Other posts show how the Government is substantially failing to protect workers from serious hazards in […]

CYF caregiver found guilty

Thu 8th May 2014:

CYFS demonstrates, yet again, their complete and utter incompetence by placing kids in the care of a rapist! When will the New Zealand public demand the dissolution of this gaggle of amateurs? I fail to understand how anyone with one ounce of compassion can see how CYFS benefits our children and our community. If the […]

Ideology and Dysfunction in Family Law canada by Grant Brown

Wed 7th May 2014:

By Grant A. Brown | May 6, 2014 For several decades now, fathers have faced significant, widespread bias in family courts across Canada. But as author Grant Brown shows in this free e-book, many of the popular prejudices behind this bias simply have no basis in law or fact. In Ideology And Dysfunction In Family […]
