Ronn submitted Henry Makow's latest article, NWO Tyranny: Men are Being Kicked in the Teeth, which outlines the all too common story of a man who begins to struggle being a provider for his family, whose wife gets fed up with him, brings false accusations against him, and divorces him and takes his children away. With so many men seeing this fate, it's frustrating that so few will heed the warning before it's too late. But this story must be told again and again until people listen.
This article from New Hampshire's Union Leader shocked me. It's about a woman who emptied a revolver at her boyfriend, hitting him once in the leg, and who in the end received a suspended sentence. The defense's main strategy was to claim that her condition of bulimia caused mental instability. I don't think that changes the fact she would have killed this guy if she had experience with aiming handguns. But we definitely have to blame the man in this case too, who pleaded, "That woman has been punished enough. . .Let her go free" to the judge. Sheesh.
bernee writes "In the Australian State of Victoria, men who have had the not uncommon run in with the family Court and have lost access to their children, homes etc and have their very livelihood threatened by Child Support Agencies have formed a group called "Blackshirts." This group engages in 'guerilla' tactics to get their message across. They have been threatened with prosecution by the government if they don't desist in their protests. The full story and other links are here. There is also a facility for feedback on the articles and topic."
This one sure bugged me.
More than one woman-journalist thinks statutory rape is acceptable or even wonderful, when women commit it against boys. In this review of Tadpole, entertainment writer, Christy Lemire, pays lips service to equality and opposition to the sexual abuse of male children by saying, "Somehow — and admittedly, this sounds hypocritical — it's OK when Diane's flirty friends slip their business cards to Oscar over afternoon tea." After that, though, she goes on to say, "two old friends have a brief heart-to-heart in Central Park about the morality of the affair — then the movie returns to laughing about it." She also says, "Diane (Bebe Neuwirth), recognizes something intriguing about this young man, and has no qualms about seducing him when he's had too much to drink." And Ms. Lemire describes the movie as, "a pleasant surprise — it's funny and sharp, sweet and poignant."
Perhaps we should contact Bebe Neuwirth to let her know how cute and wonderful it is when she rapes drunk boys. We might also contact the article's author, Christy Lemire, to let her know that, as long as she pays lip service to recognizing the hypocrisy, the raping of boys by women really is "funny and sharp, sweet and poignant."
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the authorities in Nazi Germany often turned their backs, when German gentiles raped Jews.
I thought I would give everyone an update on the "status" of the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men. While the commission will consist of seven members, with one spot reserved for a member from the NH University system, there have been a lot of applicants for the commission (possibly two dozen or so). The names of those nominated by Governor Shaheen will be released on August 14, at which time the governor's council will invite feedback from the public on the nominees. The final approval of the commission nominees will take place two or more weeks later. The public feedback period will be a critical time when NH residents can show support for candidates they believe are pro-male, and discourage the appointment of those who may be applying in order to sabotage the commission's goals.
The Child Support Enforcement Act, introduced last week by House Policy Chairman Christopher Cox (R-CA) and Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), is the latest salvo in the war against "deadbeat dads." Thompson and Sacks will explain how the bill lies upon a foundation of illusions, and will discuss their upcoming column "Child Support Enforcement Act Substitutes Political Grandstanding for Leadership" on their MND radio show. The show will air tonight (7/23/02) at 6PM PST and repeat hourly for 24 hours. Previous shows are archived and available. To listen, or for more information, click here.
bledso submitted this ESPN story and writes "Why is this man being arrested? Why is his girlfriend going free? If the roles had been reversed and he was throwing things in the apartment and refusing to leave, he would likely be arrested on some sort of "presenting a physical threat" charge. What if she were a large woman or trained in the martial arts and was able to remove him from the apartment as he bit her, then drag him to the elevator, and send him to the lobby? Would she not be cheered as a "strong woman"? Yet the man is arrested and virtually convicted in the press, and therefore, by much of the public. Men deserve the right to defend themselves and their environment just as much as women do, it's time we actually see that reflected in both law enforcement and the media."
The web site for Matthew Fitzgerald's book Sex-Ploytation has changed, and the new site can be found here. The book is an interesting continuation/variation of Esther Vilar's The Manipulated Man, so if you enjoyed that book, be sure to check out this one.
Bad News for fathers in Australia - it appears that secret paternity testing is to become a
criminal offence. Yep, that's right: if you're a man who wants to know, you'll soon be a
criminal unless you do it "their way". What is their way? According to
the rumored recommendations are: "FORCE fathers to get the mother's consent to do a test. MAKE it illegal to
steal DNA for a test. ORDER mandatory counselling for families seeking a test. IMPOSE a code
of practice for private testing laboratories." I guess it's like the old saying, the
truth will set you free, I imagine that's why they want to keep the nearest man ignorant?
