Main / United Nations Women's Fund
Jan 26, 2006, 07:17 PM
UNITED NATIONS (CNN) -- Actress Nicole Kidman was appointed a goodwill ambassador Thursday for a U.N. organization that fights for women's rights.

"I have been given many, many blessings in this life, and so much of it is about now, a time and a place about giving back," Kidman said.

In her work for the U.N. Development Fund for Women, or UNIFEM, Kidman said she hopes to focus attention on violence against women

1) Isn't there already too much focus on violence against women?  How much more of a focus could there be?

2) I wonder if the UN has a "men's fund"?  I will check out the UN website and report back

Bitter parents who try to block their formerly beloved's access to the couple's child(ren) following divorce might think twice in New Hampshire, where a proposed bill aims to make life difficult for uncooperative custodial parents.

How difficult? By inviting the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to investigate the offending parent for child abuse and neglect.

This relatively revolutionary move was the brainchild of Maine psychiatrist Dr. Stevan Gressitt, who has been working with legislators to put some teeth into visitation enforcement. New Hampshire HHS Commissioner John Stephens endorsed the idea, and a bill sponsored by state Rep. David A. Bickford (R) heads to committee Tuesday.

The article from about dangerous jobs.  The only mention of men about the recent mining tragety.

My email to the editors:
[email protected]

I read the short article by Coolidge about dangerous jobs.  One major oversight in the article was the failure to mention that all of the dangerous occupations are "male" occupations.  Year after year the Bureau of Labor Statistics and OSHA report that men constitute 92 to 93% of occupation fatalities.

If women constituted 93% of occupational fatalities there would be emergency sessions of congress and every media outlet would be complaining that women are being exploited.

Please do not omit the obvious and politically incorrect facts in your articles.
For my vacation this year I decided to go to the Philippines.  I wanted to see some of Asia and do some diving and fishing while not spending a ton of money on hotel rooms and such.

I knew Philippinas like American men (they also like Aussies and Brits - but especially like Americans).  But until you experience it yourself, you will not believe it.  Everywhere I go I find VERY pretty young women peeking at me.  When I walk down the street, beautiful women smile at me.  I have had at least a dozen women introduce themselves to me.  At the mall pretty young clerks smile and coyly look away after a moment of eye contact.  Every hotel I have been in has western men with beautiful Philippina wives and fiancées.

Over the past seven days I have seen hundreds of women who look just like the cover girls for Malaysia tourism brochures.  I have not been trying to meet women, but I have chatted and flirted with a dozen of these undiscovered cover girls (many have asked for my email address and phone numer, and offered me thiers).  Girls 18 to 31 years old have been approaching me.  Keep in mind that I am 39 years old and only decent looking.  Some women in the states find me attractive, and most do not even notice me.

It is simply incredible!!!

I know there are a lot of risks in taking a foreign bride, but several of the "white" guys I met have been married for several years and are very happy.

I am not necessarily recommending that you run out and book a trip to the Philippines, but if you are in for an adventure do some research and think for yourself.  If you do think of pursuing a Philippine bride I recommend that you hold onto your skepticism and not let your heart (and other parts) make decisions for you (these girls are so beautiful and friendly they can unsettle the most rational of men).

Sorry, but I have to say it again - It is simply incredible!!!

Is it time for the shoe to be on the other foot?

I was just watching the Discovery Channel.  They were doing a show on military trauma hospitals in Iraq.  It is so sad to see those young men with feet and legs blown off.  I salute our armed forces!

One thing was missing among the wounded soldiers - diversity.  There were no wounded women.  Where are the protesters for this inequality?

Main / Kathleen Parker knocks Maureen Dowd
Nov 02, 2005, 12:28 PM

No one vets the culture with a keener eye than Dowd. Her identification of trends - especially the perverse evolution of liberated women from Birkenstock-wearing intellectuals into pole-dancing sluts - is dead on. But while she sees women clearly as they search for identity in a gender-shifting culture, she doesn't seem to know much about men.

Men haven't turned away from smart, successful women because they're smart and successful. More likely they've turned away because the feminist movement that encouraged women to be smart and successful also encouraged them to be hostile and demeaning to men.
Court dismisses sex suit by CBS worker
CBS exec alleges manager offered him oral and "life-altering" sex but court says CBS acted properly.
November 2, 2005: 12:16 PM EST

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A split U.S. appeals court dismissed a lawsuit in which a male CBS TV station employee alleged sexual harassment by a female manager who offered him oral sex and "life-altering" intercourse.

The case involves Hugh Hardage, who worked as an advertising executive for Washington state's KSTW-TV, owned by Viacom Inc. (Research), starting in 1998. In a lawsuit, Hardage, who resigned in 2001, alleged that General Manager Kathy Sparks made unwelcome sexual advances on several occasions.

When Hardage complained to sales manager Patty Dean, he said she responded: "Why don't you just do it and get it over with? It may put her in a better mood." But Dean also set up an investigation of the alleged abuse.  [can you imagine the firestorm if the plaintif were a woman?]

A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said even if the remark was unfortunate, CBS acted properly overall, and it affirmed a lower court dismissal of the suit.

"Dean's alleged comment to Hardage that 'Why don't you just do it and get it over with. It may put her in a better mood' is certainly troubling," Judge Clifford Wallace wrote. But "considering the 'overall picture,' CBS's response was both prompt and reasonable as a matter of law."

In a partial dissent, Judge Richard Paez said CBS did not properly investigate the alleged abuses.

"It is difficult to imagine how any reasonable juror could conclude that an employer who suggests that the complainant have sex with a harassing supervisor has acted reasonably to end the harassment," he wrote.

I'm the mother of two teenage boys, and believe me, I am well acquainted with the behaviors that have led to the popular phrase "boys will be boys." But I am also blessed to know what it means to my sons' development and character for them to have a father who holds them accountable, is engaged in their lives, and is intimately familiar with their strengths, weaknesses, personalities and individual needs.
Here is a nice article:

Male-bashing has developed into a full-blown art-form in this country...

I am convinced that men like these are the key to understanding the secret of American wealth. This is how all the little miracles of innovation took place. Because they owned their little farms and had the right to any improvements they made, American men had every incentive to find better ways and to share their knowledge with others. These men take pride in the fact that they can confront reality on reality's terms. They are accountable to reality in a way that no talking head or academic can truly be. Even when I was an academic myself, and even now when I am surrounded by talking heads, I love being married to an engineer. He keeps me grounded.
I did an informal survey (walked around the office) of the family pictures in people's cubes and offices.  I work at a large corp. with 15,000 employees.  There is a good mix between male and female employees.

In workspaces occupied by men with family pictures - the pictures almost always include the wife and children.

In workspaces occupied by women with family pictures - only about half of them have pictures of husbands along with pictures of the kids.

1) Does the lack of husband pictures signify there is no man in the family?
2) Or, does it signify that the woman thinks of her kids and takes the husband for granted?
Main / Another pregnent woman attacked
Oct 13, 2005, 11:55 AM
Women will not be safe until we lock all men up ...

so you say the attacker was a woman...  that does not make any difference...

A woman hit her pregnant neighbor over the head with a baseball bat, drove her to a secluded area and cut her belly in an attempt to steal her baby that was thwarted only at the last minute, authorities said.
I posted this earlier - what do y'all think?

By nature, men are very creative, strong, willful, and volatile.

When those characteristics are channeled properly, we end up with penicillin, the Golden Gate Bridge, Generals like Norman Schwarzkopf, law and order, The Constitution of the United States, and travel to the moon...

When those characteristics are not properly channeled, we end up with Genghis Khan, rapper pimps, hobos, and the lack of societal advancement...

Over the course of history humanity has learned how to harness the dynamic energy of men. When you make them the head of a family and burden them with that responsibility, men are very productive. When society has clear and fair rules, men fight for what is right. When we admire them for bravery, they defend our homeland with their lives.

I fear that the feminizing of society, and the denigration of men's role in society, will usher in a dark era. The question to me is, how far down can we push men before men no longer see the benefits of an orderly and productive society? Are the rapper pimps a foreshadowing of societies fall? Will we soon see a time in which young men are not wiling to conform? Many men would be happy with a campfire and a gun. It is women who truly enjoy the millions of home that men have built.

I my self am a law abiding and productive citizen. I served in the US Army and put my self through bachelor and mater's degree programs. I make a darn good income (much more than I need). If I had the burden of a family on my back I would work much harder, and not chafe so much at the constraints of my job. Because I see no value in having a family, I toy with the idea of dropping out (why start a family if I am going to rank lower than the pets and lose my freedom and wealth). I have saved a decent amount of money and have humble needs. For me, it would be much more interesting to just wander the globe for a decade or so, and then settle down in the place I like the most.

What is society going to lose if we go past some point in which men are no longer willing to perform their traditional role? If my theory is correct, women have the most to lose. Be sure that all of us will lose, but women will suffer the most.

"Focusing on women, girls leaves boys out in the cold
This is in response to the Star-Bulletin's series in September about the "Women of Hawaii."

Ignoring the fact that gender inequities hurt boys has promoted the idea of girls as "underdogs" while suggesting that boys are somehow privileged."

I sent the paper a complement - I suggest you do the same

BBC: "A woman who stabbed her husband with the knife she was using to make his sandwiches is beginning a three-year community rehabilitation order."

If the man was a mean loud mouth - that is not grounds knife him.  Have the courts gone completely insane?!  There was no claim of violence by the man.

One second feminists are claiming that women are POWERFUL, capable, independent...  the next second they are happy to see a woman get counseling for murder because her husband was a loudmouth.

The implications of this stuff is so incredibly scary...
I hope you all are contacting your elected representatives - unless they hear from us, all they know is what the feminists are telling them.


Dear Senator Allen,

Thank you for your honest reply.

I am however, deeply disappointed that you support the VAWA. That law is clearly misguided and an obvious act of pandering to militant feminists. It is a sad day when we have a major piece of legislation giving benefits to a segment of our population based on sex, while also targeting the other sex with governmental force and unearned retribution.

ALL STATISTICS SHOW that men are by far, more likely to be a victim of violence. Males experience extraordinarily higher rates of murder, occupational fatalities, fatalities in military service, suicide, etc. The DOJ reports year after year that men receive longer prison sentences than women for the same crime.

Furthermore, several studies show that women initiate domestic violence as often as men. These studies also show that men are much less likely to report being the target of domestic violence because of social expectations. Approximately 30% (or more) of reported domestic violence cases are of men being assaulted.

You say that you are committed to making Virginia a better place to raise a family. Our government's actions are driving men/husbands/fathers from our families. How do you define a family?

It is troubling to see so much legislation come out of Washington that favors or targets segments of our population based on things like sex, race, age...

I guess my last hope is for the Supreme Court to rule these laws to be unconstitutional.

It is a surreal situation when you consider the facts, verses governmental action. Judging by the actions of our country and government, it is clear that we think men are disposable, and expendable.

Best wishes,

I orriginally posted this on

Until "regular" women start confronting feminists, politicians, and the media, no progress will be made.  We can lobby, and complain all we want to the politicians and media elite too no effect because nothing can overcome a shrill feminist except a large number of women.  Unless regular women see the costs of feminism, they will not act.

This is what I do to bring the reality of modern feminism to the ordinary woman, so she can no longer isolate herself from the costs of the privileges that feminists have won (women will not respond until they share in the pain).

Whenever I encounter a woman that needs the "traditional" services of a man - changing a flat tire, carrying something heavy, or rescue from something, I ask her if she is a feminist.  I usually get a curios look before she answers: yes, or no.  If she answers no, I say "that is good and I will help you with this situation".  I then tell that "if she would have answered yes, then I could not help her because my help would be sexist and condescending".  By the way - I am more than willing to help a woman because I actually believe in chivalry and a man's responsibility to protect women.

This simple question and explanation of why you asked the question brings home the cost of feminism to the ordinary woman.  Ordinary women take for granted that they can have all of the benefits of feminism, while still enjoying the benefits of paternalism.  You also might make an impact on the woman who is on the fence.  No matter what you say, you will not make an impact on ideological feminist.

I did this exact thing two weeks ago.  I saw a woman in a mini-van with children and a flat tire near my house the other day.  I stopped to see if she needed help.  She did not have her cell phone so she could not call a tow truck and charge her husbands credit card to rent a man to fix the situation.  I asked her if she was a feminist, and she stammered, looked confused, and seemed to become uncomfortable.  I could see the wheels turning in her head - she wanted to standup and have me "hear her roar", but she also knew that she did not know how to change a tire, like any 15 year old boy could.  So after a few moments she stuttered a "no".  I told her "that is good, and that I was happy to help - and if you would have said yes, I could not have helped her because I did not want to offend her feministness, after all changing her tire would have been a form of soft bigotry".  I then happily changed her tire and in a few minutes we exchanged pleasantries and were both on out merry way.  This simple interaction may have planted seed - maybe she will think twice before assuming that she can have the benefits of feminism and the traditional services of men.  Maybe she will speak up the next time a feminist is spouting crap, and point out that men are good and helpful and that she does not agree with this feminist rhetoric.

You might also spark a debate in which you can express your frustration with feminism and modern society.  Remember, in this kind of situation you are on your home turf, and that gives you a lot of points on the field of debate.

What do y'all think?
Introductions / johnnyp here
Oct 05, 2005, 06:52 PM
Hey folks,
I am johnnyp - I usually go by John.

I am a "nearly 40" single male (never married) with a professional job.  I spent three years in the US Army, and then went to college.  I have been continuously employed since 15 years of age and have never been arrested (or even been in the back of a police car).  And of course, I have never struck or threatened a female.  

For years I have been hearing all of the feminist lies via the mass media, and these lies left me feeling unsettled.  The mass media and politicians seem to always pain men as abusive, criminal, rapist pillagers, and deadbeat dads.  This info is the exact opposite of my personal experience.  Every man that I have been a friend with is a decent guy who provides for, and protects his family (and sometimes country).

Because of this unsettled feeling nagged me for so long, I started to research what I was hearing in the media.  Every single item that I could find decent evidence on showed the feminist propaganda to be either an outright lie, or a huge distortion of the facts.

Many of the men I know have gotten divorced because their wives cheated on them when they were at work providing for the family.  A couple of other guys were kicked out after loosing their jobs (even though they has socked away a bunch of money prior to the job loss, and there was no foreseeable impact on the families standard of living).

The men that I know who are still married are stuck in a sick fantasyland.  These guys have good incomes and are good fathers - yet their wives are bitter harpy nags living off of the husband's work while simultaneously refusing to keep house, get a job, or treat their man with respect.

Needless to say, our current state of affairs in this country has me seriously disappointed.

I hope to exchange info with y'all and maybe even make a positive difference (if that is even possible any more)

It is funny how the writer of the article only skirts around the fact that women consume the vast majority of medical care in this country (something like 2/3 of all doctors visits, not including pregnancy realated visits).  I wonder if women pay more for health insurance, like young men pay more for auto insurance?
