An Anonymous User writes "This tennis player claims that his sperm was stolen. Of course the journalist treats this as a joke. Imagine if a woman was complaining that she was impregnated against her will - would the journalist treat it as a joke too?" Click here for the story from the Sydney Morning Herald. According to Becker, the woman impregnated herself after having oral sex with him. This could raise some male reproductive rights issues as well - we'll see.

Tony Delgado submitted this article from MSNBC on the facts about male vulnerability to health risks. Tony writes "What I don't like about this article is the obviously insulting tone that the journalist Linda Carrol uses in the introduction part of the article. It is the typical anti-male, pseudo-journalism than the media is so happy to publish these days. I think this article deserves complaints on the MSNBC message board." Linda's e-mail is lcarrolljag@mindspring.com. I think Tony is using a lot of restraint in his description; I found the entire article to be one of the most condescending articles about men I've ever read.

In a controversial move, the British Government has eliminated the law allowing no-fault divorces. "the Government said it was not convinced "that removing fault grounds will substantially influence the way parties conduct themselves throughout the divorce process". A spokesman for the Lord Chancellor's Department added: "The reduction of acrimony and the adoption of a more conciliatory approach to divorce may require a cultural change beyond the realms of legislation." You can read the UK Independent story at this link.

The Washington Post had an article on Title IX recently, and the ways it has negatively impacted both male and female athletes. "At JMU and on other campuses, students and faculty alike have a seemingly genuine desire for fairness. But no one questions the twin logical fallacies that underlie the current implementation of Title IX: that the failure of women to participate in sports at the same rate as men means that something is 'wrong,' and that achieving proportionality means everything is 'right.'"

There was a concise but relevant article in the February 2001 issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance. "After narrowing throughout the 1980s, the so-called gender wage gap actually widened a bit in the '90s, with women earning only about 75 cents for every dollar that men make. But that doesn't mean that wage discrimination is rampant, or that it even explains why the gap exists."

There's an interesting article by Maureen Freely about replacing the women's unit with a "gender equity unit" in the UK, while looking at one of the major men's issues, namely the lack of parental rights. While she does believe a few feminist myths, (i.e, men had all the power while women were the second sex, etc.) she does seem sincere about making men equal in the article, which you may read by clicking here.

The London Free Press had an opinion article on the topic of boys being taught that masculinity is toxic at school. The author frequently quotes Christina Hoff-Sommers' latest book The War Against Boys, and insists that we need to start treating boys with more respect and to understand the different conditions under which boys thrive on in school.

Backlash.com is sponsoring a letter writing campaign to help raise awareness of Len Miskulin's hunger strike, and to help ensure that the media and courts have little room to escape accountability for ignoring his situation. Even if you're from the U.S. or Canada, your letters can go a long way to help this cause.

There was an interesting article from The Scotsman on the topic of domestic violence and Erin Pizzey. Pizzey was one of the first people to open battered women's shelters in the UK, and is an equity feminist as evidenced by her frequent criticisms of feminists who support the anti-male portrayal of domestic violence as one-sided. Apparently she has ruffled quite a few feathers, and this article sounds almost apologetic when discussing modern feminism. One thing is for certain - with more and more people challenging false information about domestic violence, radical feminists will be forced to go on the defensive in the near future.

Henry Makow wrote in to tell me about his new web site, which has a neat multimedia introduction to the issue of men and the anti-male climate at the University of Winnipeg. Henry was formerly a professor of English at UW until he was ousted from the school because he was seen as anti-feminist. You can read his story here. I will be posting a review of his book on this site by the end of the week.

An article from the Topeka Capital Journal is about the headaches and problems the child support office has caused, not only for non-custodial parents, but also for the CPs and children. Over 2,400 people did not receive child support checks in the month of October from the Kansas payment center. We have reported on other major issues stemming from paperwork and computer problems at child support agencies, and from this article more than one woman quoted in it has become so fed up that they have stopped using the agency.

Richard writes "I am passing on a special request from Len Miskulin. He asks that as many people as possible go to this website and submit a letter of support for him. He needs as many letters as he can get as quickly as possible. Please take a couple of minutes to do that. It's important for him and all non-custodial parents." Len has been striking for a month now, and has stated that he is willing to die. You can find out more info on this site. Please take a moment and show your support of Len.
