Ouzinki writes "Did anyone else witness the "teach BOYS early" advertising segment on the History Channel on the night of 3-20-02? It was in a commercial spot about 7:30 PM (Alaska time), and featured a bit that showed women and children as the only victims of violence. The final segment of the commercial stated "in order to stop violence against Women, TEACH BOYS EARLY" (emphasis mine). I've seen this particularly disgusting advertisement on the History Channel once before, but couldn't remember the date/time. I checked my watch this time 'round, and upon going to thier web site, found no email link to express my displeasure. Does anyone have an email address to anyone that counts at History Channel? This abomination must be stopped."
This commentary in the Washington Times seems to be the author's mea culpa for ignoring male victims of domestic violence in a previous column. He had reported that a woman is battered every 15 seconds, but completely failed to mention the male statistic, which was in the very same study. This rousing omission was not lost on my readers. Shortly after the commentary ran, letters streamed — poured — into our office documenting acts of domestic violence committed against men. The accounts were tied together by a common theme: the reluctance of men to come forward, for fear of being emasculated. The author also admits he purposefully neglected to mention male victims as a result of his adherence to "longstanding cultural myths." It's good to see this kind of admission of neglect in print. Williams is a nationally syndicated columnist.
Marc Angelucci writes "I am passing this message on from Larry Hellmann of the National Congress for Fathers and Children. He is trying to raise some money to publicize Father & Child Reunion. Given the cowardly lies that gender feminists have been spreading about Warren to effectively shut him up, I think this is a worthwhile effort and I will contribute a couple hundred to it."

Luek writes "Well, here is some good news! The misandric unelected female Governor of Massachusetts, Jane Swift is bowing out of the Governor's race.
What is significant here is that she was banking heavily on the femmunist voting block and their pressure groups to get elected. This tactic did not work in an ultra liberal state such as Massachusetts. This needs to be monitored as a political bellwether on how the men's movement is gaining status and how the election of the new Governor will affect the deplorable situation in the family court system in that unhappy state. I think it is a very good sign."
MANN is back, once again. I had to restore the database from backup tapes after I had hosed the system on Wednesday, so things are in the state they were in as of Wednesday morning at about 2 AM, including queued stories. All of that, and moderation still isn't quite working right. *Ack*...
An Anonymous User writes, "There's an amazing article over here by Henry Makow, Ph.D. Makow claims that Gloria Steinem (a la "a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" fame) has strong ties to the CIA, and that certain spook organizations are responsible for the success of feminism and other liberal movements in the last century. I thought the article was kinda soaked in conspiracy theories, but if Steinem was involved with the CIA, we had better find out more about it."
Bill Kuhl sent us this article and writes, "Today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a good article on boys and eating disorders. About the first third or so of the article talks about how boys are not recognized as potentially having the disease and it follows the travails of one boy to get help. Apparently he had to be driven from St. Louis to Iowa to get inpatient treatment that accepts boys."
I'll be trying to fix the slash database early in the morning of Wednesday, and the site may become unstable or disappear for a bit. I'll be attempting to fix the broken moderation system so that comments can be rated correctly, which if you haven't noticed, isn't working as it's supposed to. I'll delete this posting when the work is done, whether it succeeds or not.
Raymond Cuttill writes "The March Men's Hour is out. Our answer to the sexist BBC's claim that the woman's hour has general appeal and therefore there's no need for a men's hour. It includes Barry Worrall (Cheltenham Group and UK Men's Movement) about the destruction of marriage and how the judges are making up law, Rape Trials (Calls for anonymity for rape suspects ignored in spite of suicides by men later proved innocent) and Women's History Month. It's at www.menshour.com."
The campaign to establish a national Office of Men's Health now has a new web site advocating it, which can be seen here. Note the link towards the bottom of the page where you can send off an e-mail of support for HR 632 to your Representatives and Senators. It only takes a minute to do! The Media Fact Sheet on their site also provides some useful stats that can be referenced when advocating for men's health.
