Hunt on for reformed ex-prisoners SHANE COWLISHAW Last updated 05:00 09/12/2013 It might be the last thing a reformed criminal wants to hear – the Corrections Department is on your trail.

Thu 3rd October 2013:

Representatives of the Ministry of Men’s Affairs (a community group because successive governments have failed to respect the voice and welfare of men) will be present at protests each Saturday in October to coincide with the male-denigrating White Ribbon Campaign. The protests will will encourage people to wear a black ribbon instead to show they […]

Men can relate to and care for children

Sun 29th September 2013:

Although NZ familycaught$ judges seem unaware that men can relate to and care for children and can successfully take care of children, newspaper records regularly show a more realistic picture. Sometimes, I wonder if judges don’t read newspapers or listen to stories about families in NZ?

Government Announces The New familycaught$

Thu 12th September 2013:

There is intense background (hidden from the public) lobbying in progress, illegal under NZ constitutional conventions, aimed at protecting the present Government funding of the NZ legal workers and the unmanagement of conflicts of interest. Those Who Don’t Learn from History Are Doomed to Repeat It – George Santayana FAMILY COURTS – AN INTERVIEW WITH […]

Crown drops indecency case

Mon 2nd September 2013:

The curious case of tonsil touching has come to an end. Crown drops indecency case against former teacher It seems for this man a lot of things came to an end while he was waiting for the Police to drop the case.

Greg Andresen of Men’s Health Australia has set up a March for Father’s Day, 1st September Sunday, at Hyde Park Corner, Sydney. The Theme is A Voice for Children and is against all of the commercial forms of Parental Alienation. These issues are even more of a problem in New Zealand than in Australia, where […]

Felicity Goodyear-Smith vilified in UK

Sat 3rd August 2013:

The on-going campaign to discredit my wife’s professional reputation has just derailed a major international collaboration she has been working on. As some MENZ readers will be aware, I am currently staying with her in London while she is on sabbatical from her position as Head of Department and Goodfellow Postgraduate Chair of General Practice […]

False sexual abuse allegation

Sun 14th July 2013:

Hi All, I’m not sure how unique my situation is, but feel compelled to share my experience with others out there….and I know that this will strike a chord with some. My daughter (adopted) was unhappy about some things on the home front (having to do chores for pocket money, having to eat everything on […]

I woder if IRD Will chase him for child support? Or for that matter the boy’s parents! Case prompts minister to ask why women can’t be charged with rape

Plight of Emotionally Neglected Children in NZ

Mon 10th June 2013:

Emotional neglect is a silent destroyer of lives, many, many lives. Most suffer is silence, sometimes under suicide gravestones, sometimes in psychiatric units doped or electrocuted to silence. The early damage was done by failure to respond, to smile, to talk back as often as needed by the baby. Doesn’t sound dramatic, but the long […]

Feminist Training for legal worker$

Mon 20th May 2013:

I have heard comments about feminist training in Law School and feminist training supplied to newly appointed familycaught$ judges. I was sceptical that any such “training” could subvert human minds, as to completely undermine their ability to carry out their job competently and roughly fairly. However, read the comments of a Canadian judge, who minimised […]

FUD Submissions

Sun 7th April 2013:

Fear Uncertainty and Darkness (FUD) Instead of addressing the problems and looking for solutions, it seems that the beneficiaries in the existing familycaught$ system are distracting our attention away from the required outputs and a system for achieving them at a sensibly low cost.

Law Commission Panders to War Against Men

Fri 5th April 2013:

MoMA MEDIA RELEASE: Law Commission Panders to War Against Men Community group the Ministry of Men’s Affairs today expressed concern that the latest changes recommended by the NZ Law Commission in sexual offence cases will further reduce the ability of defendants, mainly men, to protect themselves against false sexual allegations.

CYF, do they do anything useful??

Mon 4th March 2013:

OK, this is probably a rhetorical question and I would imagine that the answer is ‘no they are completely useless’ , but my daughter is at risk and I don’t know where to turn.

It is important that people complain

Sat 19th January 2013:

For us to make NZ into a better environment, for men, women and children, it is important that people complain vigorously and constructively. I have suggested that NZ has a serious mafia problem, in terms of secret caughts, that pillage families and fail to do what Parliament allocates money to achieve.

A Few of This Weekend’s News Stories

Sun 9th December 2012:

Story time children, time to analyze a few news stories from a men’s movement perspective. Once you start to do this it’s like enlightenment and you find you’re recognizing the broader reality in what you read. The stories covered here simply happen to be from this weekend’s news and there were more even in that […]

Leeanna Marie Hodgetts, rapes and abducts child.

Fri 16th November 2012:

Leeanna Marie Hodgetts, 39, seduced, raped and abucted a child. However you will never see the NZ media report it that way. You certainly will never see NZ courts treat it that way. The reason? Leeanna Marie Hodgetts, is a female.

If the noose fits, wear it?

Wed 25th July 2012:

It can be educational, to lift one well known and understood story, change the names to something else (a less well known story) and then see if the newly developed story has any ring of truth in it? This can be an unfair and abusive technique? It can also give some insight into the less […]

Protecting yourself from Perjury

Wed 4th July 2012:

With the familycaught$ heading into a period of extreme change, there may be an increase in manipulation and perjury. Entitlement leads to immunity from other people’s rules. This is a dangerous disease, so try to be careful not to catch it yourself. As Machiavelli said, time is the greatest innovator. When the invisible rules of […]

Safe Cognitive Thought Processes?

Sun 1st July 2012:

It is scary, how men and women can be warned about some hazard, for example the familycaught$, yet they will sail on into it with a high degree of trust. Sure, the Government advertises the quality and fit-for-purpose of the familycaught$, despite the steady stream of complaints that they receive and ignore about it. This […]

Helping Men

Sat 30th June 2012:

I recommend careful attention to two issues, when helping people dealing with familycaught$ (or CYFs). 1. Mental Health 2. Parenting Skills

It’s fathers day outside of New Zealand this weekend

Sat 16th June 2012:

For example; this man needs YOUR help. Please read the article. Please put as much pressure on child youth and family to ensure this man gets his children this Sunday or at the very minimum, has contact with his children on Sunday. Perhaps, some media interest in NZ would be great although, I’m not confident […]
