His Side with Glenn Sacks is a nationally syndicated talk radio show devoted to men's and father's rights. Glenn Sacks discusses gender issues from the male perspective.

Jeff (aka This is Not Equality) writes "A 17-year old Boston girl has earned my respect, and she is, along with her step-brother and his friends, taking on the Selective Service System. With this move, she has done more for women than the NOW could ever hope to accomplish.
"The discrimination is kind of in favor of women," she said yesterday. "But this is kind of an ethical thing. If you say women have the same rights as men, you're going to have to take the good with the bad.""
ABC news has published an article that states some important facts about domestic violence. Some of the valuable statements include:
"men are battered by their partners more than 800,000 times a year, according to surveys cited by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."
"(Attorney and psychologist, Claudia) Dias thinks women who batter are much harder to treat than their male counterparts. According to Dias, female batterers 'start from a place where everyone sees them as victims.' She said men tell the very same stories of childhood abuse, yet men are never excused for hitting women. Women, on the other hand, have gotten just the opposite message."
We should write to commend them for this report.
SJones writes "The Texas woman who ran over her husband 3 times while his daughter was riding in the car with her will probably get away with it by claiming, as Lorena Bobbitt did, that she acted out of 'sudden passion' and is therefore not responsible for her actions. Sudden passion is a defense generally reserved only for women who are clearly guilty of horrible violent crimes such as sexual mutilations or murders. It's simply the "temporary insanity" claim reworded and the standard punishment, which the story doesn't mention, is 'counseling' and no jail time. The story is here."
Philalethes writes "You may be familiar with the Flatt case in North Dakota, wherein a newly-enlightened mother is suing the hospital that induced her to sign away her newborn son's foreskin (see "Circumcision Opponents Use the Legal System" under Tuesday). Here is a charming editorial from the University of Southern California's Daily Trojan student newspaper, representing the views of the modern, liberated young American female.
J. Steven Svoboda of Attorneys for the Rights of the Child comments, "Without any credit or mention of journalist Adam Liptak and his recent
New York Times article, and without any attempt to directly contact us for comment, the article takes and distorts information from Liptak's piece about the Flatt v. Kantak case (conducted by attorney Zenas Baer) as well as about Attorneys for the Rights of the Child.""
I will host this week's MANN chat, Wednesday night (2/5),
starting at 9:30 PM Eastern Time, at the
href="http://www.mensactivism.org/chat.shtml">usual location. The
topic for this chat will be "Men in Commercials: What Shall We Do About
the Misandry?" The National Organization for Women Foundation
(NOWF) has published its
of the television commercials that aired during Super Bowl XXVII.
NOWF's comments on the commercials are interesting because they
indicate some ground on which men and radical feminists might agree.
Quite troubling, though, is NOWF's clear approval of some
commercials that may stereotype men or otherwise portray men in a
negative light. What do you think of this development? Join
us tonight at MANN chat to have your say. It will help if you
style="font-weight: bold;">read the
report before attending the
chat. Hope to see you there!
ppmnow writes "They just don't get 'it'...and neither does msnbc. Why is it that viewer dissatisfaction with this network is at an all time low? Read the following excerpt of a book featured on the front page of MSN....
So, why are so many women single today? I am certain there are different opinions to that query than whats being offered by Whitehead's book. Perhaps they should consider asking some men on this. You know, to add to the whole perspective."
Uberganger writes "Germaine Greer, the feminist 'icon', has written a new book "challenging conventional views on child pornography". Called 'The Boy', it specifically focuses on boys as objects of sexual desire. It is astonishing that, in the current sexual climate, anyone would consider producing such a book. At the same time it seems consistent with a kind of deliberate perversity in relation to boys, to their depiction and treatment, that seems to be growing up in the wake of the wholesale denigration of men. Sick. A related article on sexual assault to boys by older women is here"
After some rough times starting late last December, the iFeminists web site stopped being maintained due to a lack of funding. Fortunately, Wendy McElroy has found support from the Independent Institute, and the web site is slowly being rebuilt again. Note that the main web site is now iFeminists.net - the .org and .com domains now redirect to the new location. If you haven't checked out their site, please do so - this is not your typical group of anti-male feminists.
This NY Times article (free reg. req) talks about how "circumcision opponents use the legal system and legislatures." Must read.
Dan Lynch writes "This story is specifically about Mark Edward Dexel, but it plays of so many men's lives it could be anyone of us. This man committed suicide because he could no longer fight the system. He felt beaten so he decided to hang himself. Mark left a note to explain his reasons and he aptly blames the system."
