NCFM Liaison Pursues Establishing NCFM Chapter in Sweden

Carl Augustsson is NCFM’s Liaison in the Democratic Republic of Georgia where he is trying to get the government to designate a day of celebration for men. There are two such days for women. After writing Sexköpslagen Carl learned that a member of the Swedish Parliament spoke against the legislation which punishes only those seeking sex services (primarily men) but not those providing them (primarily women). Carl thought the member of the Swedish Parliament might consider helping establish a National Coalition For Men chapter in Sweden. So, he wrote a letter, which you can read by clicking on this link. The letter is on NCFM letterhead and written in Swedish. The English translation immediately follows. (Carl has citizenship in three countries and is fluent in more languages than Berlitz has language courses.) This is just one of many examples...

Neuro News: Genetics, Sociopaths, and DV

By Robert Yourell They say that children exposed to violence grow up to be violent. Well, that’s the impression from some headlines and little articles about the state of the research. Unfortunately, that’s a gross generalization that could be harmful. Do we love stereotypes or what? Researchers, if candid, will tell you that, although it is “statistically significant,” the connection isn’t as strong as it sounds. All you need in order to have statistical significance is that you have better than even odds of something happening. It doesn’t mean good odds. But it gets worse. Does the childhood violence CAUSE the adult violence? Consider genetics. We have a lot to learn about this, but let’s talk about sociopaths for a minute, since my last article was about the sociopath as the DV perp stereotype. A look at all the...

Stop Women’s Violence

When will the domestic violence industry recognize women who batter men?  According to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services http://tinyurl.com/62rora and Bureau of Justice statistics, more kids are killed by neglect and abuse in a year (1,460 in 2005), than all the female intimate partner homicides in a year (1,181 in 2005). http://tinyurl.com/3xgllyv Mothers are the single largest group of kid killers. They have a rate twice that of fathers, yet the taxpayer funded (gender feminist run) domestic violence industry would have us believe that women don’t egregiously batter men too. They’re lying! As shown by HHS statistics, the age range for child homicides is about ten times narrower than that for female intimate partner homicides, making that rate of child homicide far more concentrated.  http://tinyurl.com/5hnjq6 Yet funding to prevent those child homicides is minimal compared to...

Man who owed child support so badly beaten officials feared for his life.

Federal inmate vs. dad in jail NOTE from NCFM: Interestingly the Internet version leaves out information about the judge found in the article below. She, the judge, gives this almost beaten to death man two whole days to report to an employment agency after being released from the hospital. To subject parents in arrears for child support to debtors prison where they can be beaten, raped, and even murdered over a glass of orange juice or any other disagreement is contrary to everything American’s have died to protect for over 200 years. Those who legislate and enforce such terror should be tried for treason, if not murder.

The Honorable Man

By
The Honorable Man

By Tim Goldich (author of, Loving Men, Respecting Women: The Future of Gender Politics. Available now on Amazon.com, $24.95). If men have the power and women are the victims, then men, the one with the power, must be the victimizers and powerless women must be the innocent victims. Believing that men have the power and women are the victims, we will believe that men are Bad and women are Good. How will the honorable man cope within this ManBad/WomanGood (MB/WG) belief system? The honorable man “knows” (has been taught that) masculinity is the source of sexism, oppression, criminality, violence, and all things bad. Yet the honorable man needs to experience himself as honorable. How then will he retain the sense of personal honor he needs to have when he “knows” himself to be a member of the Bad sex?...

Our Lives, Our Fortunes, and Our Sacred Honor

    By: Ray Blumhorst President NCFM Los Angeles According to the United States Declaration of Independence, it’s not only the right, but the duty, of every citizen “to throw off government,” that’s proven itself corrupt – beyond anyone’s doubt. “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” by: The Founding Fathers, July, 1776,  http://tinyurl.com/5yr32...

Sexköpslagen

By
Sexköpslagen

By Carl Augustsson NCFM Liaison, Democratic Republic of Georgia I wish to strongly emphasize from the outset that this article is purely about adult prostitution.  Nothing written here is to imply any support whatsoever for child prostitution. In 1998, Sweden passed a law called “sexköpslagen”, which roughly translates to “law on the buying of sex.”  Under this law, the buying of sex is a criminal offense, but the selling of sex is not.  What is worse is that this nonsense law has been copied in both Norway and Iceland.  In fact, the Norwegian law is actually far worse.  Under the Norwegian law, a Norwegian who travels to say, the Netherlands or Germany where prostitution is legal, and has sex with a prostitute could be arrested upon returning to Norway.  The supporters of this provision said that they wanted to...

By
Neuro News: The Antisocial Personality DV Poster Child

By Robert Yourell By now, I’ll bet you’re pretty much sick of hearing about how the politics of DV (domestic violence) has upended many men’s lives (not to mention blocking meaningful treatment and social services). You’ve already heard that about half of DV involves female violence (and no, it didn’t turn out that they were actually all defending themselves against the patriarchy). And you’ve heard that much of DV is mutual combat, and often fueled by alcohol. Maybe the second-biggest takeaway is the fact that the DV perpetrator stereotype (chronically violent and controlling male) only represents a small fraction of intimate partner violence. Let’s look at the psychology of this stereotype, and see where feminist theory falls short in comparison to reality. The feminist archetype for DV more or less resembles a guy with antisocial personality disorder (a sociopath)....

Education

By
Education

Most teachers are women. Nothing is being done to change that imbalance. Many modern educational practices are counterproductive for boys. Success in school is tightly correlated with the ability to sit still, be quiet, and complete paperwork. Many young boys are bodily kinesthetic learners who respond to hands-on lessons. The educational establishment finds this inconvenient, and thus largely ignores it. The trend against competition and the promotion of cooperative learning strategies run counter to boys’ natural competitiveness and individual initiative. Lessons in which there are no right or wrong answers, and from which solid conclusions cannot be drawn, tend to frustrate boys, who often view them as pointless. Many healthy, energetic, and intelligent boys are branded as behavior problems as soon as they begin school, and are punished and put on Ritalin or other drugs so they will sit...

The Ideologically Impaired are True Believers, They Hate Reason, In San Diego and Maybe Even the Democratic Republic of Georgia

By Carl Augustsson   With June approaching Fathers’ Day is on my mind, a day that should be about celebrating all good Dads rather than a day used to promote radical feminist propaganda as done over the last decade. There are some countries that have no official day to celebrate anything to do with men even though it is generally men who have laid down their lives so others in those countries can live and hopefully prosper in long periods of peace. None of which means the contributions of women are not valuable, but certainly there can be no argument that more men die protecting their families, though please feel free to argue that if you must. Yesterday I was at a grant writing workshop with roughly 30 others. Each of us stood to introduce ourselves and share with...

By Steve DeLuca: Hope Yen, Associated Press, Press Democrat April 27,2011, reported an old story as new.

Homeless veterans on the rise in San Diego and I suspect everywhere else too. There’s a worthwhile read about homeless vets in the San Diego Union Tribune. Then there are pictures like these of homeless men in Los Angeles  taken by a men’s activist and veteran in 2006, though they may as well have been taken today.  He wrote: “Homeless people are an omni-present site in most of L.A County and indeed throughout much of California.  In L.A.

ACTION ALERT: Gender Studies Law suit in London

An egalitarian MRA is bringing a damages claim against an elite university’s Gender Studies department which he attended as a student, but was forced to withdraw from due to the persistantly sexist anti-male nature of the course. His legal claim is based on Sex Discrimination law, Breach of Contract, Misleading Advertising and Misrepresentation – and he is looking for pro bono support from a lawyer or barrister, or assistance from a ‘McKenzie friend’ – someone not necessarily legally qualified, but who can nevertheless offer advisory support and strategy in court. The university’s promotional literature did not warn of the one-sided anti-male learning materials that would form the bulk of the curriculum – and the university’s prospectus and regulations, forming part of the contract, specifically rule out discriminatory learning materials and practices – so the facts of the case are...

It’s Time to Connect the Dots, Bullying, Family Violence, Solutions

  By Richart Davis On Friday April 22, 2001 I read the Boston Globe article, 1 in 4 report bullying at Mass. Schools. That article notes: The report found that students who said they had been involved in bullying, as both a perpetrator and a victim, were five times more likely to report they had been hurt physically by a family member, compared to those who said they were neither a victim nor a bully. And they were substantially more likely to have witnessed violence against other family members. In the survey that includes for the first time questions about bullying that is regularly given to middle and high school students to gauge their health and behavior, these findings define the scope of the problem and also suggests as a primary cause, the link between violence at home and...

Fortunately, NBA Bryant was rich enough to buy his way out of the impending surrealistic Sci-Fi conviction for a rape that may have never occurred.

Housework Myth

The media has repeatedly publicized studies that purportedly found men do not do their share of housework.  These studies, including one by the United Nations, were seriously flawed as they did not account for work outside the home and/or failed to factor many traditionally male forms of housework.  The mass media also virtually ignored subsequent studies that disproved the housework myth.  For instance: A recent 25-nation study (the study)by economists from Berlin, Brussels and Texas, which included rich and poor nations, found men do as much work as women when all types of work are combined. A University of Maryland study found the total workloads of married mothers and fathers is roughly equal when paid work is added to child care and housework, at 65 hours a week for mothers and 64 hours for fathers.

Genital Integrity – Circumcision

By
Genital Integrity – Circumcision

  The male foreskin is a highly innervated erogenous organ that is dense with specialized mucosa and over 20,000 high sensory nerve endings. It acts as a natural buffer and lubricant during sex. Researchers using fine-touch medical instruments shows it is the most sensitive part of the penis. That might explain why a recent study in Denmark found circumcised men have a much higher rate of sexual problems than intact men. Research also found circumcised men are five times more likely to suffer from premature ejaculation than intact men. Male genital mutilation (MGM), or “circumcision,” is gynecologically equivalent to removing a girl’s clitoral foreskin, the most common form of female genital mutilation (FGM). All forms of FGM are illegal in the U.S. despite similar purported health benefits as MGM and despite certain cultures that support it. Even a small...

Pay Gap

Despite gains made by women the pay gap continues to be used in misleading ways to advance public policy agendas without fully explaining the reasons behind the pay gap. Here, you will find a good starting place for understanding “pay gap” misleading information and why it continues to be used by Power Elite Feminists to push their agendas. The “pay gap” only exists because men work far more hours at high-stress jobs they hate with longer commutes, less flexibility, more physical risk, etc., just to be breadwinners and feed their families, only to die younger and get bashed for “earning more.”  The “pay gap” is only a snapshot of average yearly full-time incomes that does not account for overtime (about 90% male), type of work, or other factors.  The Dept. of Labor funded a study that shed light on this issue. See also, Prof. June O’Neill, Ph.D. (former director...

Rape Victims – Male

By
Rape Victims – Male

Historically, many rape laws excluded male victims from the protections women receive.  The Model Penal Code, for example, defined “rape” so that only women could be victims.  In England, funding for sex abuse victims is often denied for male victims regardless of how devastating. The federal government spent hundreds of thousands of dollars studying rapes on college campuses while ignoring rapes in prisons where men are frequently subjected to prison rape or sexual abuse, and not just by other men.  In fact, consensual sex between prisoners and guards is considered sexual abuse, especially when the prisoner is a minor, and female guards commit this form of abuse in significantly high numbers. According to the US Department of Justice, “Approximately 95% of all youth reporting staff sexual misconduct said they had been victimized by female staff. In 2008, 42% of staff in state juvenile facilities were...

Criminal Sentencing

Research has repeatedly shown that men get higher criminal sentences than women even when all other factors are accounted for. See also, Seattle Times, “State courts unfair to men, minorities, UW study suggests,” This confirms prior data showing men receive higher sentences than women for the same crime even when age, race, priors, family situation, and other factors are accounted for, and that “gender differences, favoring women, are more often found than race differences, favoring whites.” (Crime and Delinquency, 1989, v 35, pp 136-168.)  A study published in Justice Quarterly in 1986 found that, for the same felony, being male increased the chances of incarceration by 165% (being black increased the chance 19%). The gender of the victim matters as well.  A drunk driver will receive an average of a 3-year higher sentence for killing a female than for killing a male (compared to a 2-year...

Fathers have historically been denied equal parenting rights with mothers.  The 19th Century “tender years” doctrine, which explicitly gave mothers custody over children ages 13 and younger, was later replaced with the “best interests of the child” doctrine, but the gender bias persisted.  As late as 1971, the Minnesota State Bar Association’s handbook advised lawyers and judges that “except in very rare cases, the father should not have custody of the minor children. He is usually unqualified psychologically and emotionally.” Time Magazine, 11/11/03, “Father Makes Two,” To this day in the U.S., fathers usually ask for 50% custody while mothers ask for, and get, 80% custody.  Fathers become mere visitors and must pay draconian support amounts with little enforcement of their parenting time.  See, Cynthia McNeeley, “Lagging Behind the Times, Parenthood, Custody and Gender Bias in the Family Court,” on the statistics and also  debunking the myth that fathers get custody 70% of the time when they...

Women’s Wages Still Lower Because of Sexist Patriarchy — not.

There Is No Male-Female Wage Gap A study of single, childless urban workers between the ages of 22 and 30 found that women earned 8% more than men. By CARRIE LUKAS Tuesday is Equal Pay Day—so dubbed by the National Committee for Pay Equity, which represents feminist groups including the National Organization for Women, Feminist Majority, the National Council of Women’s Organizations and others. The day falls on April 12 because, according to feminist logic, women have to work that far into a calendar year before they earn what men already earned the year before.

One of our NCFM members discovered that the YMCA was charging boys more than girls for skateboarding at the YMCA’s skateboard park. Our Secretary Al Rava investigated and we thought it best to send the “Y” a letter. The YMCA for decades has provided a wide range of beneficial services to  the  young and old. We felt it would be in their best interests to discontinue such discrimination since it’s illegal in California and they could be sued, which would necessarily mean less money for programs. Interestingly, the YMCA for years primarily provided services for males while the YWCA primarily provided services for females. Now they both provide services to females, a lot of services. Fortunately, the YMCA still provides some services to males. The San Diego YMCA was only trying to attract more girl skateboarders by offering discriminatory...

NCFM Liaison Attends 18th Annual Genital Integrity Awareness Rally — Say No to Circumcision!

By Carl Augustsson, NCFM Liaison Democratic Republic of Georgia This past Saturday, April 2nd, 2011, I attended the 18th Annual Genital Integrity Awareness Rally in Washington DC. April 2nd was actually the culmination of a half-week of activities which began on the previous Wednesday, the 30th of March. The reason this date was chosen is because the 30th of March is the anniversary of the passage of the law in 1997 which bans female genital mutilation. While this law is to be applauded for protecting girls from brutal mutilation, it also needs to be criticized for its sexist double standard. After all, don’t boys deserve the same protection under the law? Raising awareness in general about the harmful and totally unnecessary effects of male genital mutilation was the purpose of the rally. The main part of the rally—a march...

We then sent the Sea Otter Classic a letter ( 110321 ltr to Sea Otter Classic re Unruh and sex discrimination ) advising them that charging men for something women received for free was a violation of several California laws. For example, the Unruh Act establishes $4,000 sanctions for each violation. Each of the 37 sponsors and the event organizers...

NCFM Files Complaint Against Assistant DA Mary Kellett in Maine for Prosecutorial Misconduct

NCFM Files Complaint Against Assistant DA Mary Kellett in Maine for Prosecutorial Misconduct

For years Vladek Filler has been hounded by Maine Assistant District Attorney Mary Kellett. Vladek was convicted during a kangaroo trial riddled with errors. The case was remanded by Maine’s Supreme Court but it appears Kellett may be determined to see Vladek convicted of a sex crime regardless of substantial evidence supporting his innocence and no credible evidence supporting his guilt. This is a horrendous miscarriage of justice. It appears Kellett makes a habit of trying men for sex crimes absent sufficient evidence. Persecuting may be more apt. But there is a concerted effort to right these wrongs. The information below tells the story and shows how you can help, please do. The organization Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE), after extensive research, filed a complaint with the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar against Assistant District Attorney...

Are Things Really Equal?

The Red Pill Review by NCFM Member Paul Elam

Why are so many women raping boys?

Absolutely a must watch video, especially if you still think men are advantaged over women

Save our heroes

Honorable Men

The New Warrior community is a group of men who specially pride themselves on being honorable. Tim Goldich, President NCFM Chicago Chapter and author of, Loving Men, Respecting Women: The Future of Gender Politics joined that community several years ago. He came to realize just how vulnerable honorable men are to having their honor used against them. Our fate may indeed depend upon honorable conduct. To better understand how the misuse of Man’s honor is a root cause of issues and ideas found on this website you should first read Mr. Goldich’s article, The Honorable Man. It lights the way to understanding how The Honorable Man can be manipulated into becoming The Complacent Man.
