The Montgomery Advertiser printed this letter to the editor in which the writer clearly outlined the negative image of fathers that Al Gore is promoting in his presidential campaign. It would be nice if some day political candidates were as afraid of insulting male voters as they are female voters. Note: The Men's Activism News Network does not officially endorse any political candidates.

CNN printed this recent story on the rise of female managers, who currently outnumber men in the 20-30 year age bracket, in significant numbers. It's a telling sign that when women have the advantage, the discrimination stories are replaced by elitism and even more blatant sexism.

This is a very serious civil liberties issue....I hope there will be a lot of outrage and dissent against it. The Daily Express reported in this article that an internet based company is offering DNA kits that can be completed with a sample of hair from the child and "father," and in two weeks can return DNA test results that will determine the paternity status of the man. The cost? 195 pounds (about $288 USD). The company has no ethical qualms about performing the test without consent from the parties involved.

I'm sorry that I haven't been able to report on VAWA II recently, but unfortunately it looks like the bill is going to pass. As many of you know, the Violence Against Women Act is supposed to provide around 4 BILLION dollars to combat domestic violence - and is politically aimed to provide support for women specifically. There is no explicit provision in VAWA to acknowledge and fund programs for male victims of DV, and many believe that men can be explicitly discriminated against with this law. Please sign this petition to support the amendment of the bill to include men in recognition and funding for DV prevention programs and shelters. Thanks to an anonymous reader for forwarding this to me.

Adam Hartney writes "A new gender gap has evolved when the Danes vetoed the Euro [a common currency for all European countries]. What's interesting is women were 60% against the Euro, and one of the reasons women vetoed it is because it would diminish state welfare. Perhaps that explains why women typically vote democrat in the US, as we all know what gender takes a lot of welfare, don't we? I found this in a Washington Times article."

I know it's a shocking headline, but it appears to be the case. According to documents from NIH, health research has been biased against women due to unequal representation of women in health research. But the fact is, men are represented less than women in the health studies which were referred to! Don't believe it?

Jim Castelli writes, "This Boston Globe article is about a male teacher who stands accused by two female students for sexual harassment in the classroom. The accuser, and another female student, testified that their accusations came after they participated in a health class on sexual harassment. Despite contradictions in their testimony, the prosecution is proceeding in its case. After 26 years of teaching science at a school in Cambridge with no previous accusations, Louis Silva finds his career, his reputation, and his freedom, on the line in a Cambridge Courtroom. School officials would not comment on the case, abandoning Mr Silva to face his accusers alone. Where are Mr Silva's fellow teachers (both men and women) in his hour of need? Has the tyranny of male-bashing-feminism rendered his collegues too afraid to speak up on behalf of Mr Silva and other men who are the targets of this modern day McCarthyism?"

ABCnews chose false accusations as a recent topic for their "Working Wounded" column. You can read it at this link. It includes a story by someone who was unfairly ousted from his job after having been accused of sexual harassment, and in the end he concludes that the had no rights at all. It's quite bold of ABCnews to post something like this, so encouraging letter writing is strongly suggested.

Adam Hartney writes "I found this at worldnetdaily, it's written by Linda Bowles about the gender gap in political parties and feminism; well worth a read. Click here." The conclusion to the article is great: "And then, perhaps as an omen, Gloria Steinem, a feminist icon who spent an entire lifetime demeaning men and marriage, delivered a stunning message to her sisters. She got married for the first time, at age 66. The message she delivered is this: It's never too late to grow up."

Paul Craig Roberts wrote a disturbing article for The Washington Times, which can be read here. In it, he makes analogies between the political climate which gave rise to the Nazi party in Germany and how our media and academic environments are similar. Likewise, the instability of families, facilitated by the government, is being done along the same lines as the Nazis did so. There are just too many coincidences that he writes about to ignore. Hopefully it will knock some people out of the complacency that they're in.

John Leo's latest column in Jewish World Review is on the effects of divorce on children, as described in the new book The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce. This book is based on new research which shows that divorce does have a definite negative affect on children's lives, and lasts well into adulthood.

That title line is a direct quote from this article found at Town Hall news. It's about a professor of sociology, Dr. Richard Zeller, who wanted to teach a course on political correctness (with plenty of student support for the course) and was denied the opportunity to teach it by the department. He resigned in protest. First Prof. Asher is ousted, now Zeller. Does anyone still believe that higher education is a place were free thinking is encouraged?

Adam Hartney writes "Here's an update on the election and the gender gap from the LA Times." This seems like a strong indication of a backlash against liberal feminism. It looks like we are coming toward a struggle of "boys versus girls" in politics. Perhaps this is what is needed to get men to organize and act on gender issues?

IHF submitted this link to a UK Telegraph article on a woman who has been sentenced six months jail time for making a false rape accusation and wasting police time and resources. She had made the false claim because she was in debt, and originally received 7,500 pounds for "victim compensation". Note that Mensactivism.org reported on this story earlier when it was first discovered that the accusation was false.

Adam Hartney writes "Here's an online link to The Case for Father Custody by Daniel Amneus. It takes a few minutes to load but is well worth it." Reviews, anyone? I can offer you eternal fame and fortune for submitting one (well, maybe not, unless you have a humble idea of "fame and fortune". And "eternal", too). :)
