SPECIAL FEMALE PARKING

Let's explain how this gender thing works. If women want and get special priviledge for anything like car parking..... they will then complain that they got it.

Mate, let your feminine side cause you to park in the pink during your gender fluid moments... to protect women from sexual predators.

Domestic Violence Against Men

Oct 19, 2009

In America, a man is a victim of domestic violence every 38 seconds.

One third of domestic violence victims in Australia ( ALL MEN ) denied services

Voice for Men News, September 15, 2014

Following last week’s launch of Our Watch – a new national initiative aimed to prevent violence against women and their children – the One in Three Campaign has released a new analysis of the latest Australian data on male victims of family violence.

Senior Researcher Greg Andresen said, “We are very glad to see violence against women being taken so seriously by the Australian Government. However we are extremely concerned that one third of victims of sexual assault and family violence are excluded by One Watch and its sister organisation ANROWS simply on the basis of their gender.”

One third of domestic violence victims in Australia ( ALL MEN ) denied services

Voice for Men News, September 15, 2014

Following last week’s launch of Our Watch – a new national initiative aimed to prevent violence against women and their children – the One in Three Campaign has released a new analysis of the latest Australian data on male victims of family violence.

Senior Researcher Greg Andresen said, “We are very glad to see violence against women being taken so seriously by the Australian Government. However we are extremely concerned that one third of victims of sexual assault and family violence are excluded by One Watch and its sister organisation ANROWS simply on the basis of their gender.”

The analysis of the ABS Personal Safety Survey and the AIC Homicide in Australia, 2008–10, published today by One in Three, challenges the claim that the vast majority of family violence is committed by men against women and children. Using the same data sources as Fact Sheets recently released by ANROWS, the new data analysis paints a very different picture of gender and family violence in Australia.

“The statistics presented by ANROWS have been designed to over-inflate female victimisation by using lifetime experience of violence instead of current rates, while downplaying male victimisation by taking only the female perspective,” said Mr Andresen.

“75 males were killed in domestic homicide incidents between 2008-10. That’s one death every 10 days,” said Mr Andresen. “1.2 million Australian men have experienced emotional abuse by a partner, almost half a million have experienced violence by a partner and almost a third of a million have experienced violence by a girlfriend/boyfriend or date. Where are the services for these men and boys?”

The vast majority of domestic violence services in Australia are closed to males. There are no shelters for men and their children, no safe rooms or legal support at courthouses, no community education and prevention programmes, no support groups, no perpetrator programs for women or health service screening tools for men.

One in Three is calling upon the Australian Government to comply with its international human rights obligations and provide programs and services for male, as well as female victims of family violence. Read More...

Sydney fireman John McGirr accuses Virgin Airlines of discrimination against Men

The Daily Telegraph, The Herald Sun, by Phil Jacob, August 11th, 2012

VIRGIN Airlines has been accused of treating men like paedophiles, after it made a man swap seats because he was seated next to two minors.

Sydney fireman John McGirr, who wrote an online blog post titled "My Virgin experience as a Paedophile", was on board a flight from Brisbane when he was seated next to two males he estimates were between 8 and 10 years old.

Just before take-off Mr McGirr was approached by a flight attendant, who asked him to move seats because the company's policy states that men cannot sit next to unaccompanied minors.

"She said it was the policy and I said, 'Well, that's pretty sexist and discriminatory. You can't just say because I'm a man I can't sit there,' and she just apologised and said that was the policy," Mr McGirr wrote in a blog online.

Mother to repay wrong man's child support

The Daily Telegraph, by Shelley Hadfield, October 08, 2011

A MOTHER has been ordered to repay child support to a man she claimed was her son's father after he discovered he cannot conceive.

For nine years the man believed the child was his after what he says was a "one-night stand". He told a court he believed the mother manipulated the situation.

The woman was ordered to repay the $3,730 he paid.


Minister for the Status of Women stated to the House of Representatives on 25 May 2011: 'Surveys undertaken a few years ago by VicHealth found that 46 per cent of respondents agreed with the statement that "women going through custody battles often make up claims of domestic violence to improve their case". Forty-six per cent of respondents agreed with this.'


Sydney Morning Herald Poll - 2 out of 3 people believe that father protestor's action was justified in trying to get help for his children - Parental Alienation

On May 13, 2011, just after 5am,  Michael Fox, a father, parked a hired truck near a pylon on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and climbed to the top of the arches.

The 38-year-old ex-military father protester unveiled two banners, reading "Kids First" and "Plz Help My Kids" at the top of the bridge. He claimed to the media that his children were victims of parental alienation.

Just before 7am, he abseiled down to the road below, where he was met by police officers. Northbound and southbound lanes were reopened about 7.30am.

Immediately after the protest, The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper conducted a website poll asking if such a protest was justified.

5 polls on other subjects found on the website of the Sydney Morning Herald on May 14 had between 1,200 and 4,300 voters.

By the end of Saturday, May 14th, about 32,000 people had voted on the poll with 2 out of 3 people saying the father's extreme protest was justified.

The "ex-military'" protester abseils down after staging his Harbour Bridge protest.

The man, identified as Michael Fox, was charged with obstructing traffic, climbing or jumping from buildings or other structures, and climbing on bridges, a police spokeswoman said.

He was refused bail to appear at Central Local Court today, she said.

The NSW Premier, Barry O'Farrell, ordered an "urgent review" of security at the bridge, calling the incident "a major security breach".

"We need to learn lessons from it," he said.

"With the threat of terrorism still very real, my government will ensure everything possible is done to protect the security of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It's the city's icon and I regard any security breaches to be very serious."

The review would look at security patrols, CCTV, physical protection barriers such as gates and fences and at criminal charges and penalties, Mr O'Farrell said in a statement. Read More …


Seeing both sides of family law

ABC, February 2, 2011, By Madonna King

The law is only one of the pillars of a system that just isn't working.

Laws, by and large, are great levellers: whether your annual salary is $1 million or $30,000, drink driving, assault, murder and a statue book of other crimes are all punishable.

In an irony evident this week, family law was shown to be very different: it's almost impossible to make one law fit all, or to prescribe the same legislative treatment to one family as the next.

And therein lies a serious problem for the Rudd Government with the release of the review into family law changes introduced in 2006.

The review and its recommendations are at least as controversial as the four-year-old law, finding that shared parenting laws had been misinterpreted, and were never meant to give a 50-50 custody split to each parent.

Safety first in family law changes

The Australian, 11 November 2010, By Chris Merritt and Patricia Karvelas

The Gillard government has unveiled radical changes to family law.

The changes would redefine domestic violence, place greater weight on child safety and could weaken the Howard government's shared parenting laws.

The changes, which are directed at cases involving abusive parents, elevate the safety of children to the top priority in custody disputes.

Whenever a court considers that this goal is in conflict with the right of a child to have a relationship with both parents, it will be required to give greater weight to child safety.

The change is contained in draft legislation released for discussion yesterday by Attorney-General Robert McClelland.

Why Australian Universities Need Male Studies Curriculum and How it Would Help Fathers and Children

MRA Position Paper - January 2011

Male Studies should be included in the curriculum of all universities in Australia.

Although Male Studies would counteract the many strange and misandric views of men and masculinity spewed by extreme feminist academia, there’s more to the idea of a Males Studies curriculum than that.

Men tend to play certain roles in society and be viewed in certain ways and those roles and ways are worth analyzing and understanding by all men and women. As worthy as Women's Studies.

Extreme feminists and female supremacists react strongly against including Male Studies at universities. Their reactions lacked any understanding of the concept or of empathy with men.

Feminist reactions to Male Studies is usually ”we don’t need Male Studies because the material is already covered in Women’s Studies,” now called Gender Studies. They also falsely claim that Australian universities are full of the study of men, so a Male Studies program would be redundant.

Really? Women bash men?

National Times, 08 March 2011

Talk about spoiling the party! Just as the 100th International Women’s Day dawns over a perfumed world Aussie professor Kim Halford has released a study on female violence.

Women wallop men just as much as men wallop women, says the prof who claims domestic violence can often be blamed on the missus getting in a pre-emptive whack first. That’s what he calls the “usual pattern”. She hits him, he hits her, now you’ve got a punch-up.

Halford  – he’s a Queensland clinical psychologist – doesn’t paint a very rosy picture of marriage. Almost a quarter of the 379 couples (22 per cent) told him there had been “at least one act of low-level violence in the year leading up to and including the wedding." (Makes you wonder why gays want to join in the nuptial free-for-all and indeed angry word-regurgitater Helen Razer sneers at the concept in a current rant ). That “low-level violence”, by the way, means slapping or shoving, rather than punching.

Interesting finding, this. In the comments to my recent blog “Do men get a rough deal?” there were all sorts of wild claims (well, they sounded wild) about men being bashed by women. I mean, men are usually bigger and stronger than women, aren’t they? Read More …


Do men get a rough deal?

National Times, January 11, 2011

Seems a bit rich these days to claim there is a ‘‘glass ceiling’’ for female jobs. Load of cobblers, isn't it? I mean, Australia has a female Prime Minister and a female Governor-General.

Has there really been discrimination over the years against mothers who work -- or against women without children?

The National Council of Women thinks so and no surprise there. I recently chatted with Victorian leader Jennie Rawther who pointed out that, among other things, women at the end of World War 1 had to give up their jobs to returning servicemen -- even though their husbands may have been killed in combat. There was no widow’s pension, nor child support.

Sounds tough but Age reader Steve Hills of Rosebud is not impressed. “There is overwhelming evidence that female health, safety and female lives were held as more valuable than men’s lives,” he says. “Men’s lives were routinely regarded as disposable. The view that women alone were discriminated against is an ignorant one.”

Men's Rights On Dr. Phil

Dr Phil TV Show - Men's Rights

September 2021

Dr Phil mixes both the mainstream men's rights advocates and a nutcase guy looking for publicity to make men look bad to create a controversial and ridiculous show to attract an audience of mainly middle aged non-working women who watch TV in the afternoons.

Advertisers love such controversial shows aimed at women who control over 80% of household spending. The more ridiclous some person on the show is, the better the ratings. Dr Phil is the upscale Jerry Springer. These shows really insult the intelligence of women.

In the show, Dr. Phil, who is no longer registered as psychologist, admits that all of his show management are females as are 90+% of his staff.

The show does have the "Martin Luther King" of the Men's Rights Movement - Warren Farrell. It also has Cassie Jay of The Red Pill documentary fame. Jerry Cox who was falsely accused of rape and kidnapping by a woman is featured. He had the ridiculous charges dropped and successfuly sued the woman.

Moms Who Kill

Biological Mothers Murder More of Their Own Children Than Do Biological Fathers

Australian Institute of Criminology statistics show there were 270 child homicide incidents in Australia from July 1989 to June 1999, involving 287 identified offenders and resulting in the deaths of 316 children under 15.

For example, the revised National Homicide Monitoring Program 2006-07 Annual Report states 11 homicides involved a biological mother and 5 involves a biological father.

The Western Australian figures shed light on who is likely to abuse children in families. Mothers are identified as the perpetrator of neglect and abuse in a total of 73% of verified cases.

Biological mothers account for about 35 per cent of all child murders, while biological fathers account for 29 per cent

Extreme Feminists - Hate Heterosexuals

Feminist Scholars Say All Heterosexual Sex is Rape

Certain feminist "scholars", such as law professor Catharine McKinnon, equate all sexual intercourse with rape.

Of the 12 recognized categories of feminists, the "Female Supremacists" are by far the most damaging to society.

They inundate our universities with hatred of males and preach that males are inferior people.  And you wonder why males don't go to university? If you were black, would you go to a university which teaches "White Supremacy"?
