Children Of Divorce More Prone To Strokes Based on more than 13,000 adults living in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the research has found that those whose parents divorced when they were children had twice the odds of having a stroke at some time in their lives.
The DV Cult Last week we were jolted with the news that the global warming crisis is a hoax, an ideologically-driven scam based on data that have been routinely doctored, selectively presented, and when necessary, furtively disposed of. But there’s another global disinformation campaign that is still going strong. Carey Roberts
New Zealand To Further Corrupt Rape Trials The justice system could be tilted to make it easier to convict sex offenders if the Government adopts proposals in a controversial taskforce report.
They may convict even if there is no corroboration or forensic evidence.
Judge KO's Domestic Violence Kickback Scheme Every time we turn around, it seems, we hear of an abuse shelter being accused of discrimination, fraud, or other head-shaking irregularities. And now a judge has ruled the entire abuse shelter industry in the state of West Virginia is wracked by conflict of interest, gender bias, and financial kickbacks. Carey Roberts
Feminism Revisited The mere claim of domestic violence invariably leads to a man being removed from his home, often away from his children. He is presumed guilty until he can prove otherwise. Michael Coren

Government Purposely Breaking Down Families For the past three decades, warnings that the disintegration of the family would result in social catastrophe were brushed aside. Melanie Phillips
DNA Paternity Tests Should Be Applied To All Newborns I have no desire to limit each individual’s right to his or her own sexuality. But every right and every freedom comes with a responsibility too, and DNA testing all children would indirectly force every adult to be accountable and accept the consequences of his or her actions. Pelle Billing
Texas Executes Innocent Father Cameron Todd Willingham was charged with the murder of his two daughters in a fire and was executed in 2004. Now Barry Scheck of the Innocence Project says this father--who always insisted he was innocent and refused plea bargains--was, in fact, innocent
The Psychology Of Hate Psychology is hate. At least as it is practiced in western culture. Paul Elam
Family Court Injustices Another type of feminist indignity is the use in divorce cases of false allegations of child sexual abuse in order to gain child custody and the financial windfall that goes with it. Former Vancouver, Wa., police officer Ray Spencer has spent nearly 20 years in prison after being convicted of molesting his two children who are now adults and say it never happened. Phyllis Schlafly
Feminism Is Evil Although it is not Susan Pinker’s intention in writing it, reading her excellent book The Sexual Paradox cannot help but further reinforce my view that modern feminism in the 21st century is simultaneously illogical, unnecessary, and evil. Satoshi Kanazawa
Obama Betrays Men It's no secret that men have been hit hard by the recession. From November 2007 to November 2008, the U.S. economy lost over 2 million jobs — 82% of those losses were male jobs and only 18% female jobs. Carey Roberts
Fathers Have Become Second-Class Citizens Father’s Day is nothing to celebrate: today’s neutered dads have become overworked assistants to their children rather than paternal role models. Toby Young
False Accusations By Foreign Brides Common Some foreign brides tried to exploit a loophole in immigration law by accusing their husbands of domestic violence, several Valley men say.
Hiding Government Reports Liberals never tire of convincing persons to believe they are victims in dire need of a government hand-out. But this time it's a case of outright mendacity aided by the concealment of a high-level government official. Carey Roberts

Aussie White Men To Be Discriminated Against Thanks to planned changes by the Brumby Government to the state Equal Opportunity Act, it will soon be legal to discriminate against middle-aged white able-bodied men who hold the reins of power. In fact, it will be actively encouraged.
Shocking Misandric Adverts The young boy with the cheerful smile announces that one day he will beat his wife. The demure, sweet-faced girl shyly asserts that one day her husband "will" (not may) kill her. Barbara Kay
Judge Segal said: 'In any event, the wife does not want a 9-to-5 job, because this would not give her enough time with her horses.
False Allegations Abound Women's false allegations of domestic violence and sexual abuse of children against their former partners are so rife - and virtually never punished - that it is apparently the best-kept secret crime in the western world. Barbara Kay
Women's Abuse Shelters Are Fraudulent Are abuse shelters really brimming with hapless victims trying to break free of the cycle of violence? The answer to that question is a surprising "No." Carey Roberts
(Also see Would You Sign This Contract?)
Family Annihilators They call men who kill their children (and often themselves) "family annihilators". They are not as rare a breed as we prefer to think; in the past couple of years we have seen several families wiped out by deliberate drowning, fire-raising, smothering and asphyxiation. Ruth Wishart

Why Dads Are Fighting Back Does the name Simon Anderton mean anything to you? You might have heard his name in the news in recent weeks. Simon risked his life climbing the Tyne Bridge, as his way of fighting for his rights as a father. Douglas Young
How Feminists Do Their 'Research' When Suzanne Steinmetz revealed that women are often as violent as their husbands, the fem-fascists started a whispering campaign designed to block her promotion at the University of Delaware. When that didn’t work, they phoned in a bomb threat at her daughter’s wedding. Cowed by the threats, Steinmetz soon suspended her pioneering research. Carey Roberts
A Warning to all American Fathers
Professor Stephen Baskerville - 2 mins
Amazon link to the professor's highly insightful book.
Professor Baskerville has been researching the American family court system for almost two decades. What he exposes about this system is really quite appalling, and I am sure that his revelations will shock you.
I can summarise his findings very simply. There are billions of dollars being made every year by various professional and governmental groups who profit by driving fathers out of their homes and removing them from their children. American fathers be warned. Unless you are forearmed, you will lose out very heavily indeed should you and your partner ever have even the mildest of relationship problems.
In fact, to put it bluntly, only a real fool of a father would ignore what Professor Baskerville has to say.
Psycho Feminists It’s been a long time since I’ve reminded my readers what a bunch psychotic feminists we have in charge of the Womyn’s movement at Appalachian State University .... Apparently, small, handheld vibrators are not enough. They need your tax dollars to pay for giant sex organs, too. Mike Adams
Alienated Youth In The UK The two things which teenagers need most – a good education and strong family support – have been taken from them by Marxists and feminists, and we will be living with the effects for years to come. Heretical

Gutless Men? Given the 50% divorce rate and 40% -- and rapidly growing -- out-of-wedlock birthrate, men get the short end of the financial stick. But, mysteriously, they keep electing and reelecting the politicians who stick it to them. Men must end this self-defeating behavior by demanding representation to justify the enormous taxation. Marc Rudov
Feminist 'Justice' at Duke Almost daily, men are released after decades of incarceration because DNA tests prove they were wrongly convicted. But while DNA has righted some wrongs, the corruption is so systemic that hard evidence of innocence is no barrier to conviction. Even the Washington Post has documented how feminist crime lab technicians doctor evidence to frame men they know to be innocent. Stephen Baskerville
Women Who Batter Chivalrous men resist the image, but it's a problem that has become so pervasive that we must summon up the courage to face it — an epidemic of women who pummel their husbands and boyfriends. Carey Roberts
IMBRA Feminists are rankled by any hint that their nostrum for female liberation may be curtailing American women’s marriage prospects. Worse, some of these foreign women actually aspire to be mothers and homemakers. Imagine that! Carey Roberts

Men Are Smarter And Stupider Women occupy important positions as judges, company directors, journalists, professors of science and mathematics. And quite right, too. Yet the stubborn facts of history remain. Very few truly original scientific discoveries have been made by women. There are no women geniuses in physics or mathematics to rival Newton or Einstein.

Welfare: The Road To Serfdom It is not called the welfare “state” for nothing. For unnoticed by reformers has been a startling development that is far more serious than even the devastating economic effects. This is the quiet metamorphosis of welfare from a simple system of public assistance into nothing less than a miniature penal apparatus, replete with its own system of courts, prosecutors, police, and jails: juvenile and “family” courts, “matrimonial” lawyers, child protective services, domestic violence units, child support enforcement agents, and more Stephen Baskerville
The Nifong Wall Of Shame Several years ago, I made a funding request for a new Men’s Resource Center (MRC) at UNC-Wilmington. This was largely in response to the establishment of a Women’s Resource Center (WRC) here on our predominantly female campus. Back then, I made the request on the grounds of Equal Protection. Mike Adams

Equal Pay At Wimbledon? Sports columnist Alan Mascaren has concluded that by almost all criteria, "women's tennis is an inferior product."

Woman Hangs Children; Not Her Fault According to Elaine Epstein, former president of the Massachusetts Women’s Bar Association, restraining orders are doled out "like candy" to “virtually all who apply," and that "in virtually all cases, no notice, meaningful hearing, or impartial weighing of evidence is to be had."

Alec Baldwin: Father Since when did every parent in America become answerable to the media and the government for what they say to their children? As several commentators noted, if every parent were to lose their children every time they lose their temper, all the children in America would be parentless. Stephen Baskerville
Duke Case: The Feminist Klan Exposed One thing is clear: feminist campus activities at Duke in 2006 did not occur because of spontaneous student outrage. They were organized by professors in the Women’s Studies department in cohort with national feminist organizations such as the National Organization for Women and the American Association of University Women. David Usher
Lynch Mob Fever At Duke Our country was founded on the principles of rule of law and the presumption of innocence. But what we witnessed in Durham, North Carolina over the last year had little to do with the even-handed pursuit of justice. Except for the absence of ropes and gasoline, it resembled a small-town lynch mob. Carey Roberts
American Justice From Overpaid Judges I spoke to the Matrimonial Commission in Albany. Despite fathers rights activist after fathers rights activist appearing at these hearings to express their pain, the commission offered an 88 page report that hardly mentioned shared parenting. Rinaldo Del Gallo
In an 88-page investigation on matrimonial law (the law of marriage and divorce), the term “father” or “fathers” never appeared. Though there were numerous members of the panel, not a single fathers rights activist was on the panel. And while sole purpose of the panel was to examine the state of matrimonial law and how it was handled in New York, shared parenting was reduced to but a single paragraph, and did not discuss any findings by psychologist or learned professionals.
Women Encouraged To Divorce Family law now allows mothers to walk away from marriages at any time and take the children with them. Not only is this permitted, it is encouraged and rewarded with financial incentives. Stephen Baskerville - 6 min

Toxic Wives Part II Capturing a rich husband is seen as a legitimate career choice in itself. A 25-year-old banker friend told me that many girls don't even bother getting a job after university - they stay on the party circuit until they've trapped their milch-cow. Tara Winter Wilson
Toxic Wives Part I Once upon a time, there was a truth, universally acknowledged, that a man with a powerful job and a beautiful house must be in want of a wife – preferably of the trophy variety. Domesticated, docile yet dazzling, she was the perfect finishing touch. Tara Winter Wilson
Women Always Innocent, Men Always Guilty Some men commit crimes because that’s what men do, the thinking goes. But women offend because they didn’t get the help they needed and they were at their wits’ end. Mindelle Jacobs

Men's Health vs Women's Health “We’ve got men dying at higher rates of just about every disease, and we don’t know why,” said Dr. Demetrius J. Porche.
But the mere suggestion that men need their own health bureau or that they must advocate for their rights like a victimized minority rankles some women’s health advocates, and some politicians are reluctant to take men’s health on as a cause, for fear of alienating women.
In the UK, the government spends about eight times more money on women's health issues than on men's.

Parental Alienation ... anybody old enough to drink coffee knows that embittered divorcees can and do manipulate their children. Not just women, but men, too.

Denying Men's Legal Rights Why are overzealous prosecutors trying to put men in prison for an alleged crime that no one will corroborate in court that the alleged victim may not want prosecuted or punished? Phyllis Schlafly
Corrupt Family Courts Many people have trouble believing the harrowing tales of human rights abuses now taking place in American family courts and wonder why, if they are true, we do not hear more about it. Perhaps because in many jurisdictions it is a crime to criticize family court judges or otherwise discuss family law cases publicly. In other words, censorship works. Stephen Baskerville
Bogus Restraining Orders Each year, 500,000 domestic restraining orders are issued without even an allegation of violence, according to a recent report from R.A.D.A.R. These orders are often used as a legal tactic designed to gain an unfair advantage during a divorce proceeding. Carey Roberts

Feminist Victory Everyone recognizes that discrimination is bad, which allows gender warriors to think up programs and legislation to root it out. If women's preferences and choices are responsible for the differences in outcomes between men and women, gender warriors' reason for existence begins to disappear. Carrie Lukas
The Patriarchy Will Soon Return Advanced societies are growing more patriarchal, whether they like it or not. In addition to the greater fertility of conservative segments of society, the rollback of the welfare state forced by population aging and decline will give these elements an additional survival advantage, and therefore spur even higher fertility. As governments hand back functions they once appropriated from the family, notably support in old age, people will find that they need more children to insure their golden years, and they will seek to bind their children to them through inculcating traditional religious values akin to the Bible’s injunction to honor thy mother and father. Phillip Longman - 15 min
No Fault Divorce In New York It's ironic, Dickinson said, that New York is moving toward no-fault divorce at a time when a handful of states are facing moves to repeal their no-fault laws amid claims that the laws encourage divorce, victimize nonconsenting spouses and hurt children.

On Feminism Feminist literature is filled with putdowns of the role of housewife and mother. This ideology led directly to feminist insistence that the taxpayers provide “a comprehensive program of government-supported child care.”...

+ Despite incessant repetition of the word "diversity" in academe, the tragic fact is that the academic world is one of the most intolerant places in America when it comes to diversity of ideas. Even the president of Harvard dare not step out of line. Thomas Sowell
From 1971 to 2005 the number of households rose from 18.6 million to 24.2 million. The rise includes an 11 percentage-point increase in the number of single-person households, fuelled by divorce rates.
Did you know that feminism increases global warming? - and that it also helps to increase the price of fuel?
You get a gold sticker if you can work out how.
Men Are The Losers Men are the real victims of discrimination so virulent it is shortening their life spans, causing them to be self-destructive and suicidal, crippling their educational opportunities and destroying a generation of fatherless children.
Paternity Fraud As the nation experiences an unprecedented increase in unwed motherhood, more men are finding themselves named as "fathers," for purposes of child support, simply because of their ability to pay,
Boys Hampered By Feminism The problems plaguing boys are not pecuniary, but paradigmatic: the progressive, child-centered worldview and feminism. Ilana Mercer
Ladies Who Lecture How stirring that universities now hire lots of women. Andrew Bolt
War Against Boys Gilligan's solution for the Boy Crisis involves boys "recognizing their sensitivities, building honest relationships, and strengthening a healthy capacity for resistance." Translation: More sexual harassment lectures and fewer sports programs. Carey Roberts
Feminism On Campus To tell you the truth, I don’t know when it was. But I have definitely realized that feminists are the biggest censors on my campus. Mike Adams - very funny
No Limit On Proving Paternity The Ohio Supreme Court upheld a state law Wednesday that gives men unlimited time to use DNA proof that they are not biological fathers, which means they could stop paying child support. At last!
American Boy Sues Sexist School The fear of being branded a girly swot has long been cited as the reason some boys fail their examinations. Now this may be presented as evidence in an American schoolboy's landmark lawsuit.
Equality In Education The Gender Equity in Education Act pumped tens of millions of dollars into advocacy research and feminist-inspired programs, all based on the fraudulent claim that girls were lagging in an all-encompassing patriarchal society. Carey Roberts - demonstrating yet another example of the highly prejudicial and damaging notion that when girls lag behind boys educationally it must be the fault of the 'environment', but when the opposite is true then it must be the fault of the boys themselves!
Narcissistic Feminism The four most common words a feminist uses are “I,” “me,” “my,” and “mine.” Mike Adams
Debunking Feminist Ideology Kate O’Beirne’s "Women Who Make the World Worse" is one of the boldest books challenging the orthodoxy of political correctness to be released in years. Above all, it documents the real damage inflicted on our culture by radical feminism and the women who lead that destructive movement. David Limbaugh
Whose Fault Is Divorce? When the husband divorces his wife, it's hubby's fault. When the wife divorces her husband, well, it's hubby's fault too. Jeffrey Leving
Making The World Worse O'Beirne deploys a tactic that orthodox feminists consider grossly unfair: She quotes them and highlights their claims. Christina Hoff Sommers
No Help Or Research For Male Suicide It occurred to me that if 86 percent of adolescent suicides were girls, there would be a national commission to find out why. There'd be front-page stories and Oprah shows and nonprofit foundations throwing money at sociologists and psychologists to study female self-destruction. Joan Ryan
"As much as I would love to lead the charge (in finding out why boys kill themselves), try to go out and get funding for it," said Lanny Berman, the executive director of the association. He is frustrated that funders aren't interested in studying boys and men.
Orchestrated Frenzy Contemporary judges view divorce hearings as a mechanism for punishing men, child custody hearings reflect a considerable bias in favor of women, employers now hire on the basis of chromosomal characteristics, and the workplace, thanks to the sexual harassment industry, is an environment hostile to males. Bernard Chapin
Taking Feminists Seriously Generally speaking, feminists get together with other feminists because it is less expensive than seeing a therapist. Mike Adams - nice piece - and very accurate
Men Are Doomed Are men on the verge of extinction? With recent research showing that the Y chromosome is shrinking, their future certainly looks bleak, says New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. In this extract from her controversial new book, she looks towards a distinctly female-friendly future. Maureen DowdFathers For Justice O’Connor’s problem was that, unlike Greenpeace, Fathers4Justice was never seen as a “progressive” pressure group; it is not seen as an organisation fighting for the underdog. Yet it’s hard to think of any sector of society more discriminated against than fathers. Rod Liddle
Angry Wimmin O’Beirne has hit a nerve, and now these same angry women are trying to sink the book—though we predict they’ll have about as much success with Kate as they had defeating Reagan and G. W. Bush. Their tactic: an apparent smear campaign on Amazon.com. Charlotte Hays
Family Destruction Feminists now pose as defenders of motherhood, and their weapons are children. But the aim is not to strengthen motherhood and the family but to turn them over to the care of government. Stephen Baskerville
Professional Feminists What feminists couldn't impose by constitutional amendment they have imposed through the schools, college faculties, and the culture, by judicial fiat and advocacy dressed up as legislation. Don't be fooled by their militant insistence that women's equality has been thwarted. These women are chronically dissatisfied and qualified for only one job: professional feminist. Kate O’Beirne
Saintly Women According to the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System, women are the most common abusers of children. Carey Roberts
Yes indeed. When a man commits an offence he gets a prison sentence. When a woman commits the same offence she gets therapy.
After Innocence This past weekend in Los Angeles, a friend and I went to see the debut of a new movie entitled, After Innocence. The movie, in my opinion, was excellent and showed the lives of a number of men who had been wrongly convicted of crimes, most involving charges of rape. Ray Blumhorst
Restraining Orders Many, if not most, domestic violence restraining orders are simply tactical maneuvers designed to gain advantage in high-stakes family law proceedings. The Illinois Bar Journal calls the orders "part of the gamesmanship of divorce." Jeffery Leving and Glenn Sacks
Women Abandon Workplace Linda Hirshman outraged the US when she said the real glass ceiling is at home. She prescribed a new set of rules for women: put work first, marry beneath you, and never have more than one child." Suzanne Goldenberg
If the old paradigm of men as providers and women as nurturers is flawed, then
why is it that women’s groups are so opposed to giving men equal footing in
custody disputes? The answer is that feminists were never just seeking gender
equality, they were seeking gender superiority. Joe Englert
Fathers Lose Out As divorces became easy to get, feminists suddenly did an about-face in their demand that fathers share equally in child care. Upon divorce, mothers demand total legal and physical custody and control of their children, arguing that only a mother is capable of providing proper care and upbringing, and a father's only function is to provide a paycheck. Phyllis Schlafly
Women Who Make the World Worse Women Who Make the World Worse shows how feminism has devastated American society: fracturing families; making American schools and workplaces into battlefields to advance feminist causes; and exalting working women among mothers and consigning millions of children to a soulless upbringing by daycare center employees. Through it all, O'Beirne shows that feminists have poisoned American public discourse about gender issues with politically charged claptrap about how a hostile patriarchy makes women its helpless victims. Kate O'Beirne
Domestic Violence Against Men Finally Recognised Last Month Congress reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act. The final version includes text that, for the first time, recognizes male victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. This is a step in the right direction of a balanced approach to family violence -- but only the first step. Cathy Young
Women Need To Emote A while back two friends were in the midst of a breakup. The females in this circle of friends got together over a bottle of wine to laugh, cry and talk it through. The men? They shared a bottle of scotch, watched the game and hit a bucket of balls. They never uttered a word about the breakup. Joann Klimkiewicz
The New Chivalry The truth is that the new chivalry is so all-encompassing that capturing its magnitude would require quite a tome indeed. I haven’t even touched on feminist-inspired junk research, which I wrote about in my piece, “When Science and Feminism Become Bedfellows.” But now for the million-dollar question: does it really matter?

Women Not Equal Under The Law Bad news to the Lavender Ladies at the N.O.W.: Women are still lesser to men in the eyes of the American legal system. What's worse, it's women who are bringing this upon themselves. Three recent events show this to be true. Carey Roberts
The Truth Behind Child Support Defaults Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement data shows that two-thirds of those who owe child support nationwide earned less than $10,000 in the previous year. According to the largest federally funded study of divorced fathers ever conducted, unemployment, not willful neglect, is the largest cause of failure to pay child support. Jeffery M. Leving and Glenn Sacks

Men Tired Of How They Are Portrayed Men are tired of their portrayal in advertising, according to a new book by Michael Buerk. But images of men behaving stupidly is not the only cliche which irritates writer John Camm.
Where To Go? There was no place for these murdered men to seek assistance because there are no shelters for men in Saint Louis. Hot lines, shelters, and legal advocacy agencies have little to offer either because there is no funding to do so. David Usher
The Princess-Victim Complex It's not just the feminist propaganda mill that endlessly replays the woman-as-victim mantra. Chivalrous men, acting out their fantasies of the White Knight in Shining Armor, are guilty as well. Carey Roberts
Ridiculing Men It is not the first time that a BBC show has set out to ridicule men in a way that would cause outrage if the target were women. A current documentary series on BBC3 called The Week the Women Went presented the carefully edited consequences of removing girlfriends, wives and mothers from a village in Nottinghamshire. John-Paul Flintoff
What About Battered Men? For thirty years now, researchers have known that wives kick, punch, stab, or shoot their husbands about as often as husbands kick, punch, stab, or shoot their wives. But federal law ignores the facts and instead uses the power of the purse to get states to impose Kafkaesque policies that punish victimized men and reward violent women. Mark Rosenthal
The Restraining Order Scam Here’s how the ploy works. A woman who feels in the slightest way abused goes to a judge to request a restraining order. This is usually done at an “ex-parte” hearing, meaning the hearing is done in secret and the judge does not bother to invite testimony from the alleged abuser. Carey Roberts
Women Like Money Spent On Them Men who spend big money wining and dining their dates are not frittering away hard-earned cash. According to a pair of UK researchers, they are merely employing the best strategy for getting the girl without being taken for granted.

What Is VAWA? In case you’re wondering, here’s the meaning of VAWA: the Violence Against Women Act is a $1 billion-a-year law that turns every marital tiff into a hate crime against women. Carey Roberts
MacDworkinism Feminist elites in conspiracy with America’s Neo-Marxists are seeking a gradual usurpation of power through cultural and legal changes, and view the courts and college campuses as agents of social change towards the bloodless communist revolution. Eric Ross - 8 min
VAWA pours money into the Domestic Violence industry and the so called Family Shelters whose advocates from the N.O.W. rank and file coach women in how to profit from mounting false allegations, how to maximize their payoffs by breaking up families while their husbands are still at the peak of their earning capacity.
Restraining Orders Dished Out Like Candy In some states, police officers forfeit their right to possess weapons (and consequently lose their jobs) by the mere fact that a woman has made a police report of domestic violence. Glenn Sacks
Marriage Rip-Off A wife was unjustly awarded £5 million of her husband’s fortune despite their short-lived marriage because a judge ruled that the act of marrying him had given her a legitimate expectation of a higher standard of living, the Court of Appeal was told yesterday.
Say No To VAWA It's a mystery why Republicans continue to put a billion dollars a year of taxpayers' money into the hands of radical feminists who use it to preach their anti-marriage and anti-male ideology, promote divorce, corrupt the family court system, and engage in liberal political advocacy. Phyllis Schlafly
Sex Differences What is it that makes women want to chat about the events of their day while men would rather reflect on theirs in silence? Why do men generally gravitate to computer and sports magazines while women prefer gossip and relationship glossies?
Feminism In Europe Karl Marx taught that if women desired to free themselves from the shackles of patriarchy, they first had to wrest control over the means of reproduction. Now birth rates in Europe have plummeted, choking off the inflow of young workers and imperiling the financial viability of the social welfare state. Carey Roberts
Swedish Feminists The definition of abuse in her report includes having been shoved, having been exposed to verbal threats or having been given an unwelcome hug, at least once since you were 16 years old. Any women who has admitted to have been shoved once by her brother after the age of 16 years old has been included in the same category as women who are regularly beaten by their husbands. Nima Sanandaji
Domestic Violence Arrests Ordinary citizens arrested in the middle of the night, thrown in jail on false charges, never seeing the inside of their homes again. Show trials with predetermined outcomes. Dissidents forced into treatment for politically incorrect thoughts. Lisa Scott
The VAWA Fraud VAWA-funded organizations routinely discriminate against men seeking help. Ten VAWA-funded women's shelters in Los Angeles were recently sued for refusing a male victim help. Rather than offering to stop their blatant discrimination, they went to court to defend their right to continue the discrimination. Mark Rosenthal
Grabbing Arm Is New Sex Offence Fitzroy Barnaby said he had to swerve to avoid hitting the 14-year-old Des Plaines girl who walked in front of his car. She said he yelled, "Come here, little girl," before getting out of his car and grabbing her by the arm.
VAWA Should Go I hope VAWA becomes the Titanic of the legislative approach to social problems. I hope it sinks spectacularly. Wendy McElroy
Larry Summers Was Right My father is now currently the chair of the Harvard math department, and this is why I laugh at Ms. Paur's accusations of sexism. I grew up roaming the halls of that department, spitting off the balconies and scribbling on the blackboards, and let me tell you, there just isn't any sexism. Alice Taubes
Fathers In Trouble More than five million American children each year have their access to their noncustodial parents interfered with or blocked by custodial parents. Behind that statistic are legions of heroic divorced or separated fathers who fight a long, hard but generally unrecognized battle to remain a meaningful part of the lives of the children who love them and need them. Jeffery Leving and Glenn Sacks

What Have Feminists Done to America's Fathers? For three decades, feminists have toyed with the question that Maureen Dowd chose as the title of her forthcoming book, Are Men Necessary? That's just the latest version of Gloria Steinem's famous line, "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle." Phyllis Schlafly
Feminism Today What we call feminism today is merely the political sanction of the expendability of men. Men today have little political sponsorship, even though their cause is more “grass roots” than feminism ever was. Mike Spaniola
Sperm Donors Cheated The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is weighing a case with the potential to strike fear in the hearts of sperm donors who thought they were getting $50 for their genetic material and nothing more -- certainly no responsibility for babies created with it.

Women Have It Both Ways
Women, it seems, are far too tired to sleep with us these days. They are also
too tired to do paid work and that unpaid domestic servitude we males glibly

Successful Romance And Education Linked University dons have discovered that it is not class nor money that best form a long-lasting relationship but your schooling. An analysis of thousands of couples across Britain found that 60% of marriages were between couples of similar scholastic ability.
The Changing Face Of Marriage We can certainly create more healthy marriages than we do now and we can save more marriages that are in trouble. But we can never reinstate marriage as the primary source of commitment and caregiving in the modern world. Stephanie Coontz
Fathers' Rights Victory In Massachusetts A determined father in Massachusetts has delivered an early Father's Day gift to non-custodial parents, the overwhelming majority of whom are dads. Wendy McElroy
Breast Cancer Breast Cancer The disproportionate media prominence of breast cancer has had a knock-on effect on the status of the disease in the oncological hierarchy. Because such a lot is written about it, it has filtered into the policy-making consciousness that breast cancer is a more pressing issue than, say, bowel cancer. Zoe Williams
Domestic Violence Myths Domestic violence occurs, gender feminists claim, because of the suppression of women’s rights, sexism and the power and control of men over women in society. Gender feminists ignore the fact that the vast majority of professionals have documents that this gender feminist claim is not true. Richard Davis
Statistical Shenanigans Always present your statistics in nice round numbers like 75%. That way if you are challenged, you can always fall back and say the number is an “estimate.” Carey Roberts
Buying Jewelry For The Wife Every year, in Japan, they have an International Jewelry fair. Company and factory reps come from all over the world to gather and sell their goods to a still wealthy Japanese market. The only people who are allowed into this Jewelry fair are licensed dealers and reps – the general public is not allowed. There's a good reason for this too. If the general public were allowed in and they found out what was really going on, no one would buy jewelry anymore. At least not from jewelry shops and departments stores. That's for sure.

Mother Nature Is Not A Feminist Although Rhoads does not posit a direct link between high levels of testosterone and a feminist worldview, he suggests that it might be one source of the tension between feminist and traditional women. Indeed, Rhoads's book poses significant challenges to mainstream feminism, whose devotees continue to impart a feverish urgency to the denial of sex differences. Christine Rosen - 9 min
Fathers4Justice In America Fathers 4 Justice -- a fathers' rights group that originated in Britain to crusade for child custody and access rights in divorce--has just landed on American shores with the creation of F4J-US . Wendy McElroy
Sex Differences True justice for radical feminists means overcoming gender and establishing an androgynous society. So when Summers asserted that something besides artificial cultural roles—something besides “gender”—might account for the distinct positions of men and women in society, he was undermining the intellectual and political foundation of the entire women’s studies establishment. Stanley Kurtz - 10 min
From either a biological or cultural point of view, then, the feminist project of androgyny is ultimately doomed. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t do harm in the meantime. In America, many boys are slipping behind in school; their sisters are significantly more likely to go on to college. Yet thanks largely to the influence of academic feminists, legal and educational resources still flow disproportionately to supposedly victimized girls. In the end, gender won’t disappear, whatever the mavens of women’s studies hope, but the careers of some bright young men probably will.
Weakening The Family Once society comes to believe that members of the male sex are a menace to women, it becomes easy to enact laws that strip men of their Constitutional rights of due process and equal treatment under the law. Carey Roberts
Women Lag Behind In Chess In part, the sex imbalance can be explained by history: men have been playing chess for 2,000 years, women only since the late 19th century. Jodi Wilgoren
When women play chess with men they should really be given two moves for each move that the men are allowed to make, and maybe given a couple of extra pieces. And they should also be given more time; perhaps two hours for every hour. This would partly help to compensate for the 2000 years of discrimination that they have faced.
A few million dollars annually spent by the government for women-only chess classes would also help women to compete fairly with men.
It is now time to put an end to discrimination in chess.
Faculty Diversity At America's top universities, gender and diversity are more important than hard science. Ben Shapiro

Harvard Reaches Out to Women Scientists Harvard President Lawrence Summers committed his university Monday to spending $50 million over the next decade on a range of programs — from mentoring to child care to late-night transport — aimed at improving the climate for women scientists, many of whom were angered by his remarks that questioned female aptitude for top-level math and science.
Men Are Devalued A former director of Lifeline, Bruce Mackie, says more men than women are dying in the workplace, on the roads and in water, and from cancer, heart disease and suicide, because they have learned not to value themselves.
Put Smut In Its Place Gil Reavill makes it clear that he sees nothing wrong with sexually explicit material "being available to every consenting adult who seeks it out." He reminds us -- several times -- that he opposes government censorship, supports freedom of speech and belongs to the American Civil Liberties Union. But he objects strenuously to having smut flung in our faces when we're not looking for it. Regina Lynn
The Risk Of Marriage And Divorce If men don't want the problems associated with divorce, they should not get married. Modern family law gives men little reason to get married and gives women little reason to stay married. Paul Robbins - 6 min
Motivation While some psychologists still argue that people perform better when they do something because they want to – rather than for some kind of reward, such as money -- Steven Reiss suggests we shouldn't even make that distinction.
The Science of Gender and Science A debate between Harvard psychology professors Steven Pinker and Elizabeth Spelke. ... Both presented scientific evidence with the realization and understanding that there was nothing obvious about how the data was to be interpreted. Their sharp scientific debate informed rather than detracted. And it showed how a leading University can still fulfill its role of providing a forum for free and open discussion on controversial subjects in a fair-minded way. It also had the added benefit that the participants knew what they were talking about. Steven Pinker and Elizabeth Spelke - 60 min
Federal Government Promotes Fatherlessness We can no longer ignore how taxpayer money is providing incentives for divorce and creating fatherless children. Nor can we ignore the government's complicity in the predictable social costs that result from more than 17 million children growing up without fathers. Phyllis Schlafly
Dads Are Marginalised Anyone who has spent time in family court can testify that there are plenty of terrible parents of both genders. But in a lot of courtrooms, fathers are seen as little more than the keepers of the checkbooks. William McGee

Collaborative Divorce Fort Wayne attorney John H. Brandt has handled divorces and other family-law cases for 27 years.

Paternity Test Required My adventure began in August of 2004 when I received a letter from the Office of the District Attorney in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana. My first thought was, "where in the heck is Tangipahoa Parish?"

The Wonders Of Testosterone Testosterone has a bad reputation. The public image of it is closely linked to the idea of dumb aggression, to the caveman. But this is a far from complete image.

Testosterone, it seems, could be the true driver of our civilisations. Darren Blacksmith - 4 min
