NCFM Carolinas launches campaign at UNC-Chapel Hill to educate students about horrific new campus sexual assault policies

On September 9, 2014 NCFMCarolinas takes to the street to voice concerns over UNC’s flawed new sexual assault policy The National Coalition For Men Carolinas (NCFMC) kicked off their Fall campus crusade campaign by traveling to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and distributing material that openly questioned how college students are denied fundamental civil rights by the university as a direct consequence of UNC’s newly implemented sex policy. Family Weekend at the UNC-Chapel Hill is described as a special time set aside for parents and families to reconnect with their student, meet other Carolina families, and connect with faculty and staff. This event provided an excellent forum for NCFMC street activism and though the heat and humidity were bordering oppressive, the team of volunteers did a great job of engaging students and parents walking down Franklin Street. Appearing...

NCFM Advisers Gordon Finley, Dianna Thompson, PR Director Steven Svoboda, and President Harry Crouch in the news about SB 967

NCFM Advisers Gordon Finley, Dianna Thompson, PR Director Steven Svoboda, and President Harry Crouch in the news about SB 967! NCFM’s efforts to stop California’s misandric legislative effort Senate Bill 967 have garnered some attention and will hopefully help facilitate our recommendations to Governor Brown not to sign the bill. In brief, SB 967 requires college students to secure affirmative consent consistently when having sex, gives license to false accusations absent and sanctions for false accusers, denies the accused due process, will cost the state and our colleges hundreds of millions of dollars in law suits, and sets the stage for ruining innocent lives. There is no evidence anywhere to even suggest such legislation will prevent anything other than a fair hearing. There is no legitimate evidence anywhere that there is a sexual assault crisis warranting such intrusive legislative...

NCFM Award Winner Cathy Young article in Time, “Campus Rape: The Problem with ‘Yes Means Yes’

By
NCFM Award Winner Cathy Young article in Time, “Campus Rape: The Problem with ‘Yes Means Yes’

Opinion Campus Rape: The Problem with ‘Yes Means Yes’ by Cathy Young @CathyYoung63 Having the government dictate how people should behave in sexual encounters is a terrible idea The campus crusade against rape has achieved a major victory in California with the passage of a so-called “Yes means yes” law. Unanimously approved by the state Senate yesterday after a 52-16 vote in the assembly on Monday, SB967 requires colleges and universities to evaluate disciplinary charges of sexual assault under an “affirmative consent” standard as a condition of qualifying for state funds. The bill’s supporters praise it as an important step in preventing sexual violence on campus. In fact, it is very unlikely to deter predators or protect victims. Instead, its effect will be to codify vague and subjectively defined offense of nonconsensual sex. No sane person would quarrel with...

NCFM Complaint to NPR re sexism triggers Ombudsman’s response and over 700 comments, “Sexism, Only This Time About Men”

NCFM NOTE: This is somewhat out of date order since we posted a subsequent response before reading the following article. Nonetheless our complaint triggered a massive discussion with over 700 comments on NPR Ombudsman’s website. Please notice NPR uses the proper name, “Ombudsman” rather than the PC Ombudsperson… interesting. We need more national conversations like this. It’s important that we as a culture and society continuously check and re-examine our assumptions, especially those codified in law that impact the way we related to each other. This exchange with NPR is one example of how we can invigorate such a discussion. While we don’t agree with Mr. Schumacher-Matos findings we appreciate his considered response and wonder if his hyphenated name is telling…just a thought (no, NCFM has no position on hyphenated names).

By
NCFM Adviser Julie Brand, author, counselor, survivor, and highly sought after dynamic speaker, will be in San Diego September 11 talking about Female Sex Offenders in Positions of Trust. You are invited.

  NCFM NOTE: If you are a survivor of female sexual abuse, male or female, or a professional working in a field in which people are abused you should attend this presentation. There’s no charge, but if you think if “free” means “not worth it” you are absolutely wrong. Julie will be in town presenting at the 19th International Conference & Summit on Violence, Abuse & Trauma (IVAT) conference. Many survivors either cannot afford the high cost of the IVAT conference or don’t know about it since they don’t work in a related field. Some professionals may not be able to attend for a variety of reasons. Julie believes it’s important for both survivors and professionals to understand the horrific consequences of being sexually abused by a female in a position of trust. Hence, this free opportunity to which...

By
NCFM Member Ray Licht response from NPR Ombudsman adds more evidence of sexism!

NCFM NOTE: NCFM filed a formal complaint with the NPR Ombudsman too. We have yet to receive a reply. Anyone who listens to NPR, even for the shortest of time, cannot miss the bias against men, especially on their national shows. How anyone can come to another conclusion escapes me, unless paid to do so… NPR Adds Evidence of Sexism By Ray Licht I recently performed an informal study of anti-male sexism on National Public Radio. This consisted, for the most part, of examining the pro-female and anti-male sexism broadcast over NPR’s afternoon news radio program, “All Things Considered,” (ATC) during the month of February, 2014. I have counted fifty examples of this bias against men by ATC in my report of the study. (The report, “Why Is NPR So Sexist?,” can be found at http://ncfm.org/2014/04/action/ncfm-member-ray-licht-writes-the-superb-article-why-is-npr-so-sexist/. I believe that...

NCFM Arizona Chapter President Rich Cassalata, M.Ed, helps bring like-minded groups together

Men’s Rights Groups in Arizona? Several Growing and Politically Active Men’s Rights Organizations Now on the March! When we think about men or father’s rights groups we often think about mainstream organizations such as the National Coalition for Men, A Voice For Men, Honeybadgers, a Shrink4Men and other major organizations. These organizations often lead the charge for men’s rights activism and debate the issues of the day. Even fewer organizations, including the National Coalition for Men, take active steps to ensure men, father and family friendly legislation is supported within our many state governments. The National Coalition For Men often focuses on legislation that could be harmful to men, families and students in a variety of social issues. NCFM often takes steps to ensure wrongheaded legislation is not passed in the name of “gender justice” when possible. Readers on...

NCFM Adviser Gordon Finley urges Governor Brown not to sign SB 967 which denies due process to college students accused of sexual assault

The Denial of Due Process May Bankrupt Universities Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D. With now literally hundreds of editorials and op-eds taking positions both pro and con on California’s SB 967 – as well as the broader issue of “affirmative consent” for sexual relations — it is virtually certain that the California legislature will pass and send to Governor Brown’s desk SB 967 in the coming week. The bill is titled: “Student safety: sexual assault.” Writing as a faculty member of more than four decades in four universities, it is tragically clear that this campus rape crusade bill presumes the veracity of accusers (a.k.a. “survivors”) and likewise presumes the guilt of accused (virtually all men).  This is nice for the accusers – both false accusers as well as true accusers — but what about the due process rights of the accused? Critically,...

NCFM NOTE: Daniel Arp has been a member of the National Coalition For Men (NCFM) for years. He regularly takes advantage of opportunities to speak about men’s issues before various board of directors or other governing bodies at public forums where anyone can speak for two to three minutes. Doing so is lonely work for any men’s rights activist but Daniel perseveres. His determination and dedication are the stuff of true activists and a fantastic example of what one person can do to educate thousands. Thank you Mr. Arp for all you do. Thank you very much… Gov. Rick Perry (Texas), mailed Daniel his 2nd Prostate Cancer Awareness Month proclamation, which he showed off during his speeches. You see, it’s because of Daniel’s one man band that Texas has a Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. ________________ Below is my speech...

NCFM Carolina’s President meets with Senator Burr over proposed legislation for handling sexual assault allegations on college campuses

NCFM NOTE: Here’s an example of responsible activism in the war against men. The President of our NCFM Carolina’s Chapter has coordinated efforts with like-minded organizations and working with the families of young college students falsely accused of sexual assault. The NCFM Carolina’s website is one of the best sources of related information on the Internet about the war against our college men. It was through these efforts that we gained permission to give written testimony on the pending Campus Safety and Accountability Act which is now part of the Congressional Record. Subsequently, Senator Burr‘s (Senior Senator North Carolina) office offered a meeting, not just with staffers, but with Senator Burr himself. We need more efforts like this. We need more advocates like our NCFM members in North Carolina. We need more direct relationships with elected officials. Let us know...

NCFM Advisers Gordon Finley and Dianna Thompson article “Affirmative Constent U” published in Santa Barbara Independent

Affirmative Consent U By Dianna Thompson and Gordon E. Finley Young Men’s Rights in Peril Monday, August 11, 2014 Rape and sexual assault are very serious crimes, and we applaud efforts to protect both male and female students on California campuses. However, SB 976 introduced by State Senators Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) and Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) would initiate harmful changes with disastrous consequences for California’s sons. The bill adopts the “preponderance of evidence” standard. That is a lower bar than the “beyond reasonable doubt” standard used in the criminal courts or the middle-ground “clear and convincing evidence” standard typically used in matters with serious consequences to the accused. In the college setting, the accused will be saddled with a lifetime “sex offender” stigma because of an ambiguous social interaction, not a forcible rape. The U.S. Department of Justice data reveals...

NCFM Member and member of Leading Women for Shared Parenting, Teri Stoddard, asked that we post this appeal from the Leading Women for Shared Parenting

NCFM NOTE: NCFM is pleased to post this appeal and excited to hear about the possible opportunity in North Dakota. If you can support this effort please do.   If You Want a Shared Parenting Movement, Here’s an Opportunity I hope you don’t like this article. On May 17th, 2004, Massachusetts became the first US State to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. In the following decade, eighteen additional States passed laws allowing gay marriage and fourteen others have rulings moving through appellate courts. It would be almost impossible to argue that allowing gay marriage in Massachusetts didn’t help its advocates in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, California and elsewhere. Clearly, there are differences between the gay marriage and shared parenting movements, as there would be with any two social issues. High on the list of differences is that lawyers...

About the author: Michael Conzachi is a retired three decade police detective from Southern California, a former police academy instructor, a U.S. Army veteran of the 82nd Airborne Division and is a frequent contributor and current NCFM Adviser. The Current Push for Colleges to Investigate Allegations of Sexual Assault can hurt valid cases: A Law Enforcement Perspective. In recent weeks and months, there has been a flurry of activity regarding the investigation of sexual assault allegations on college campuses, to be handled by administrators and student disciplinary boards. That is probably the worst idea since the invention of the square wheel, and the clapper. I speak from the perspective of having spent three decades in law enforcement and nearly two decades as an investigator. Not only are college tribunals unqualified to take on such as task, but many in...

NCFM NOTE: Here’s a well-reasoned article by one of our long time standing members and staunch defender of father’s rights… By: Paul Clements, DADD-SC FALSE RAPE ACCUSATIONS New Hampshire Governor John  Lynch was quoted as saying that, “it’s time for everyone to realize they should support victims of sexual assault,  and hold their abusers accountable.”  Grace Mattern, NH Sexual Assault Coalition executive director echoes the Governor by saying that “Victims are never to blame”.  Maybe! It all depends on whether the accusers are really victims.  You see, what this feminist governor and his feminazi pals in the domestic violence industry don’t want us to know, is that a large percentage of sexual assault reports are patently false. Begin with Jane Roe, of the Roe v.Wade case.  Roe eventually admitted that she lied about being raped for the simple reason...

 Yes, feminists do promote discrimination against men; A Response to Criticism of Men’s Rights Activists;   By Marc E. Angelucci, Esq. On June 26-28, 2014, I had the pleasure of attending the first International Conference on Men’s Issues, Sponsored by “A Voice For Men (AVfM),” in Detroit.  Hundreds of people came from around the world, including many women and minorities, to peacefully discuss fathers’ custody rights, male victims of domestic violence, false accusations, paternity fraud, and other issues affecting men and boys.  The first three speakers were women, including the first black woman on the Canadian Parliament, Senator Anne Cools.  The conference was a tremendous success. But as we expected, following the conference we saw a barrage of yellow journalism in the media that glossed over the issues and focused mostly on stereotyping men’s rights activists (MRAs) who organized...

NCFM Carolinas launches a discussion group for falsely accused college students and their families

NCFM NOTE :  As our colleges continue to adopt horrifically anti-male policies being forced on them by the U.S. Department of Labor, more and more students, primarily male, will be falsely accused of sexual impropriety. Such accusations are, without question, life altering, to include depression, anxiety, ridicule, suspension from school, suicidal ideation… Such accusations disrupt, devastate, and challenge entire families along with their friends and social networks. Thus far there has been no centralized venue for victims of such false accusations, no place for them to share their stories among friends, no place for them to gather and discuss things, no place to help them heal. Now there is, thanks to NCFM’s Carolinas chapter. The official announcement follows. Please spread this information far and wide. We know there are many more victims than have been identified in the press....

NCFM Award Winning Journalist Barbara Kay: At Pride Toronto, militant feminist dogma trumped rights

Barbara Kay: At Pride Toronto, militant feminist dogma trumped rights By Barbara Kay The blow fell too late for a counter-punch. But that seems to have been the idea behind Pride Toronto’s arbitrary ejection of the Canadian Association of Equality (CAFÉ) from Sunday’s parade just days beforehand, leaving no time for appeal of the decision. The annual Pride event in Canada’s biggest city is supposed to be a celebration of all things and causes relating to gay culture and, more broadly, to formerly marginalized sexual identities. It’s supposed to be a big tent. But as the treatment of CAFÉ shows us, only those groups with a politically correct agenda are seen as acceptable. According to its own policy, Pride Toronto doesn’t permit cancellations after June 21 — thereby ensuring that groups have an opportunity to respond to complaints lodged...

NCFM Carolinas submits written testimony to US Senate Committee on sexual assault on college campuses

  We strongly recommend that you watch the hearing on campus sexual assault above. Look at the witness list. What you will hear and see is an absence of anyone representing our views, including the one male victim paraded before the committee. All the witnesses are invited by those who control the committee, and it appears some of the committee members have predetermined outcomes in mind. That said, the written testimony below while it wasn’t read at the hearing, is a matter of record. To our knowledge it is the only testimony that makes a strong statement about false accusations and lack of due process in the campus hearing process. Without question, this bill is squarely targeted at young college men based on highly questionable data. We are particularly thankful to North Carolina’s Senator Burr and Senator Hagan for allowing our testimony....

NCFM files opening appellate brief in NCFM v. Selective Service System

If you have been following this case, you will recall that last year the lower court dismissed NCFM v.

NCFM Vice-President Marc Angelucci, Esq., our attorney, appealed to the 9th Circuit Court.

National Coalition For Men gets honorable mention in the National Review

NCFM NOTE: We got a nice mention by columnist Christine Sisto in the National Review. She said: “A Voice for Men and other MRA websites do seem to focus all of their energy on hating the feminist movement. But some, like the National Coalition for Men, focus on real issues that men face.” And, we, the National Coalition For Men (NCFM), can without reservation say, we have done so for decades. Here is the full article: The Men’s-Rights and Feminist Movements Should Get Married You’d think people with the best interest of women in mind would support the idea of women’s being able to defend themselves. But the current feminist movement seems more interested in furthering classic sexist gender roles, with women as trembling flowers getting stomped on by big mean boys, and progressive feminism as the chivalrous White...

NCFM President Harry Crouch’s wish to you for the happiest of Father’s Days

Here’s wishing that you and yours have the happiest of Father’s Days. Unfortunately, many children won’t see their Dads and many Dads won’t see their children. This last week, like every week, I spoke with several Dads whose children won’t be with them, won’t be with them because the mother of the children took out a restraining order against them. I’ve worked with thousands of people who have been abused, sometimes over a period of week, months, or even years. I have seen bruises, wounds, black-eyes, and scars; and, most frequently, the horrific emotional damage. I’ve lost some to suicide, attended funerals, broke things in frustration.

File a Federal Complaint

If you have specific instances of discrimination against male domestic violence victims by any government-funded DV program anywhere in the U.S., please send all evidence you have to the following federal agencies as a complaint, and state that this violates United States Code, Title 42, Section 3789d(c)(1). Give them as much evidence as you can. They are supposed to investigate it. After several months you may get a letter back saying there is "insufficient evidence" and that they need more information such as dates and times of the discrimination, names of the programs and contact info, names and contact info of witnesses, documents or records, and a detailed chronological narrative. So, re regarding evidence, the more the better. You can send the complaints by email, mail, or both. Send them to: Office of Civil Rights Office of Justice Programs U.S. Department of Justice 810 7th Street, NW Washington, DV 20531 Office of the Inspector General inspector.general@usdoj.gov oig.hotline@usdoj.gov
