Hostage To What?

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:31 am

Do the many men who have visited this site and told of their plight, feel like they were hostage to something, but they didn’t know what?

Did you not feel like a hostage just that you had lost a degree of freedom and independence?

Apparently there is a freedom protest at parliament today.

The first thing that caught my eye watching the video that’s circulating was the number of women at the protest!

Maybe history doesn’t always repeat itself.

But it does at least rhyme.

Mark Twain.

There came a point in the past where an entitled women gave up her position and accepted a humble life because she realised what the man knew was worth more than what she had.

So, where in history has that story been told before and do we think it will happen now?

Kiss is a Contract

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:43 pm

It’s convenient to separate sex from reproduction and this is an argument that blossomed under the Clark Administration,

Just a thought but what do you think?

Too Blokey

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:10 pm

That’s what they say, sometimes;

“I’m too blokey.,”

Someone has to do it, right?

You can’t have every male-bashed remnant riding off over the horizon on a horse of defeat.

FFS – as soon as he get’s that opinion going we better get it under control.

I need to be controlled?

God forbid … I might actually be able to think for myself, but I don’t qualify as a legitimate opinion … because that might offend someone?

That makes me representative, right?

Of what you don’t want to deal with?

A new report by the Coalition to End Domestic Violence (CEDV) shows that men are not the most common perpetrators Domestic Violence but are targeted in service of feminist and socialistic agendas.

Lost Men

Some call them ‘Pastors of Muppets’

In small out of the way places men and in some cases women too running small independent church type organisations.

This one in particular came to light when the lockdown was announced for Northland otherwise it would likely have escaped the world’s attention.

Peter Ellis child sex abuse appeal

Filed under: Sex Abuse / CYF — JohnPotter @ 8:48 am

The appeal into sexual abuse convictions arising from the Christchurch Creche case has begun in the Supreme Court. The defence will focus on four issues:

  1. the children’s evidence was contaminated, and obtained using improper techniques.
  2. expert testimony by psychiatrists mislead the jury.
  3. an expert witness gave evidence about symptoms of sexual abuse which had no scientific validity.
  4. the prosecution failed to “tell the whole truth”. The evidence was cherry-picked then ‘sanitised’.

The Process of Division

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:47 am

This I thought was interesting.

I see there are some fixed beliefs surfacing in many of our current conversations. It’s always good to see other points of view.

The Men Only Vote

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:25 pm

Opinion Credit – Australia

There is a short space of time between the male suffrage (12 years from memory) and one person one vote. Not to rehash our history – most of us know that bit.

There was a long discussion on this site in 2017 and what that might mean if Ardern became New Zealand’s prime minister.

Two elections later and if only men voted would Ardern still get the popular vote?

Complaint about Judge going to first hearing

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 7:59 pm

Complaints about NZ court Judges are not rare. Complaints proceeding to a hearing are extremely uncommon.

Last season there were 162 complaints. This year, 363 complaints.

Statistics show that complaints about the Family Court have doubled.

The Judge is entitled to have name suppression.

Judicial Conduct Commissioner’s Alan Richie on his said “On my assessment, the conduct, if established, would fall well short of accepted judicial standards.”

This is what separates the men from the women and the boys from the men – if you care about your country, you don’t have a choice but to understand and discuss these issues when politics fails to function.

Warren Farrell is a political scientist, activist, and author of seven books on men’s and women’s issues including his latest title “The Boy Crisis

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 9:48 am

Bettina speaks with New Zealander Peter Joyce, the author of Dry Ice, which documents the seven-month ordeal which followed a false allegation of historical rape. Peter, a retired English teacher, first heard about the allegation when a detective turned up at the door and announced Peter had been accused a rape by a daughter of a friend – whom he had never met. It turned out that she had accused her father of repeatedly and systematically raping her in her childhood and recruiting his friends, including Peter, to do the same.

Update: No response from HRC so I made this video

Filed under: General — Iain Fergusson @ 1:52 pm

Previously I posted the open letter to the Human Rights Commission asking them to do more for men, but they have not responded even though I did send them a reminder. So I have started a video series highlighting their human rights violations. Here is part one.

Gender Issues Around Covid

I can understand the reluctance to discuss covid and the need to be careful about how this is discussed.

I’ve seen the situation censured twice recently.

There are likely many Covid-19 tragedies so far untold, with people accepting their position in the belief that their circumstance was unavoidable until we have a unique tragedy that actually makes us all sit up and realistically analyse such questions.

It’s not the first time that an event like this has begged an answer.

Covid Deaths v Suicide Deaths

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 1:48 am

It has long been said a photo is worth a thousand words. I attached 2 photos.

And as we already know, its 4 males to 1 female.

The Government is trying to save lives, right? If you are male, it isn’t you.

Lockdown Distress

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:48 am

I see media from Australian sources about the pressure on their helplines with the current Delta outbreak.

I assume at this time, especially with the Lockdown extensions announced yesterday we will have a similar situation in New Zealand.

If you’ve found this site for some reason what has brought you here?

A family court case disrupted by the lockdown perhaps? Maybe other reasons?

Hate Speech Law NZ – Coming your way soon.

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 9:20 am

Three years in prison. Left wondering if we would still be able to openly post on this site should the bill become law.

Will I no longer be able to hate the haters of men and boys human rights?
