Leave My Penis Alone!

Leave My Penis Alone!

By Harry Crouch and Marc Angelucci “These, then, are the human genitals. Considering their great delicacy, complexity and sensitivity, one might imagine that an intelligent species like man would leave them alone. Sadly, this has never been the case. For thousands of years, in many different cultures, the genitals have fallen victim to an amazing variety of mutilations and restrictions. For organs that are capable of giving us an immense amount of pleasure, they have been given an inordinate amount of pain.” (Desmond Morris, Body Watching. New York: Crown,  page 198) San Diego morning talk radio show host Chip Franklin recently ridiculed a ballot initiative to make male circumcision illegal. Franklin said, among other things, that circumcision was a religious issue. So are human sacrifice, animal slaughter, cannibalism, and other ghastly practices. In English speaking countries circumcision evolved from...

Wimps, Gay Guys, Women-Haters, Civil Rights, NCFM, and the Unruh Act

Wimps, Gay Guys, Women-Haters, Civil Rights, NCFM, and the Unruh Act

“A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.” Martin Luther King, Jr. Then there’s “Ladies’ Night” with discounted drinks or cover charges for only female patrons. Sadly, many men agree with Ladies’ Night promotions. Let the women in for free, the more women, the merrier.  If it’s not free women won’t come to the party.  What’s the problem?  Critics bemoan only wimps, gay guys, and misogynists object; it’s a business decision and no one is hurt. Separate bathrooms for blacks, no handicap ramps, and human trafficking are all business decisions as well, and all are illegal. Special promotions for only female consumers in California violate California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act.  It’s not about wimps, gay guys, and women-haters.  It’s about equal rights for everyone, no matter their gender....

NCFM Members Active in Review of California’s Child Support Guidelines, arguably another form of government sanctioned homicide.

NCFM Members Active in Review of California’s Child Support Guidelines, arguably another form of government sanctioned homicide.

After complaining about paying child support Gary Scott Holland was charged for killing San Francisco socialite Kate Horn. In Santa Ana William Gregory Mordick was tried (and convicted) for the cold-case homicide of his estranged wife over a $124,000 child support bill. In Santa Ana Richi Omandi was sentenced to 25 years to life for drowning his 4-year-old son in a bathtub after discovering that his wages would be garnished to support his son and ex-wife. In a case I investigated, Derrick Miller, of San Diego, a decorated retired Navy veteran, walked up the steps of the downtown courthouse holding divorce papers in one hand and a nine-millimeter automatic in the other. Derrick told the guard, “You did this to me!” Miller had recently been ordered to pay onerous child support; child support he did not owe. Derrick pulled...

VAWA is an Excellent Target for Spending Cuts

Phyllis Schlafly Feb. 1, 2011 Townhall.com While the U.S. House is trying to figure out how to cut wasteful and/or extravagant federal spending, members should be mindful of Reagan’s advice to begin by cutting programs that are harmful. One that fits this definition is the billion-dollar-a-year Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), now up for re-authorization. This week is the 18th anniversary of an event that precipitated passage of VAWA in 1994. It’s known as the Super Bowl Hoax, the assertion made on Jan. 28, 1993, in Pasadena, Calif., with fulsome media coverage, that more women are victims of domestic violence on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year. That radical feminist fairy tale lacked even a shred of truth. It was designed to feed the feminist anti-male and anti-masculine prejudices that men are naturally batterers, women...

NCFM Members Continue Educating Congress About Much Needed Violence Against Women Act Reforms

The Foggy Bottom Metro station escalator ended with wind whipping snow and rain around me as I tried to button my wool coat. Having just arrived in Washington D.C. from San Diego my brain rejected the cold until I mistakenly stepped in a puddle of ice and water sending shock waves from feet to cerebellum. Toting luggage acting like a mainsail I tacked my way through a developing ice flow to my hotel. Cars were spinning out and a fender bender greeted me with a rude thump as I crossed the first intersection. It was the worse snow storm of the year; just my luck.

NCFM send letter to Congressman Poe re human traffickers and gender bias

Dear Congressman Poe, The National Coalition For Men is the oldest men’s rights organization in America. NCFM also has members in several countries.  One of our oldest chapters is in Dallas/Ft. Worth.  The president of our Dallas/Ft. Worth Chapter was once a president of a National Organization of Women chapter in Texas. I am writing because Chang.org is wrongly connecting Super Bowl Sunday to an increase in trafficking, raping, and otherwise abusing children.  One of its articles implores the public to “Ask the Super Bowl Host Committee to Stand Up and Protect Children,” and asserts “The trafficking of children for sale at the Super Bowl is well documented.”  The link provided to substantiate the “well documented” claim leads to one Hawaii News Now article spotlighting one pimp who took a total of three prostitutes last year to work the...

This trial court verdict follow these same NCFM members victory at the California Supreme Court case of Marc Angelucci v.

The Justices commented that the Supper Club’s behavior was “startling” and “absurd”. The NCFM members are Marc Angelucci, NCFM Vice President, and Elton Campbell who were represented by NCFM Board...

NCFM Objects to the Child Support Guideline Stakeholder Racket

NCFM Objects to the Child Support Guideline Stakeholder Racket

Millions of families are affected by child support guidelines in California. Support orders typically run 25%-50% of after-tax income. The Child Support Guideline Review (hereafter “Review”) takes place once every four years. By law (Family Code 4050 et. seq.) the courts have to conduct the review to report to the Legislature whether the Guideline results in “appropriate” child support. This all is a big deal and the review process is the primary feedback mechanism. The Judicial Council is charged with conducting the Review. The law says that there will be public comment during the Review process and including the draft of the written report. Since it’s in the best interests of the people of California to participate one would think that the Judicial Council would highly publicize both and encourage citizens to participate. I’m surmising that if you were in...

NCFM helps the PGA avoid a lawsuit over “Women’s Day”

Tiger Woods will be starting his 2011 PGA season in San Diego at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course, but thanks to NCFM, the tournament’s Women’s Day event has been renamed Healthy, Wealthy, & Wise. One of NCFM’s banks, Torrey Pines Bank, was a sponsor of Women’s Day which was advertised in a large ad in the San Diego Union Tribune newspaper.  Promotional materials were distributed elsewhere, including the tournament’s website. After becoming aware of Women’s Day, NCFM contacted Torrey Pines Bank and requested more information.  Because NCFM is a bank customer, the bank offered NCFM free tickets. NCFM made no mention of its concerns about Women’s Day seemingly discriminating against men. The bank told NCFM that men were allowed to attend the Women’s Day event.  However, because  of the event’s name, theme, and all-female guest-speakers,...

Back Home Women Veterans Battle Sexism?

By Steven DeLuca That was the headline on my Sunday paper 11/28/2010. A more accurate and Politically Incorrect view would be to notice that male and female vets deal with sexism at home and overseas but to notice, really notice, the sexism men live with shows a certain lack of chivalry and we just don’t go there. “Women have always been the primary victims of war” said Hillary Clinton, while at a conference on Domestic Violence in San Salvador. If 58,000 women had been killed in Viet Nam and 8 men would Hillary suggest that “men were the primary victims of war?” She says women were the primary victims because they lost husbands, fathers, and sons in combat.

http://www.tnhonline.com/letter-to-the-editor-women-initiate-domestic-violence-too-1.1372813 4/20/10 Dear Editor, As a nonprofit organization that works with male victims of domestic violence, rape, and false accusations, we ask that you print this letter to give a side of the problem that was not mentioned in the article “Speaker Highlights Domestic Violence Issues” (4/15). Jackson Katz is correct that rape is not just a women’s issue.  But that’s because males are victims too.  And it’s not true that “men commit 99% of rapes,” especially when you include statutory rapes of minors.  About 95% of all youth reporting staff sexual abuse in juvenile detention facilities say they were victimized by female staff.  And a student survey in New Mexico found 43% of teacher sex abuse comes from female teachers, but 92% of prosecutions are of male teachers. Also, while men are less likely than women to report their victimization to police, virtually all randomized empirical surveys show...

The point isn’t whether domestic violence rises due to unemployment, but Sen. Reid’s gender-biased comments, stigmatizing male victims and their children by blaming only males for the problem. Men are less likely to report it (which makes crime data unreliable), but almost 300 studies now confirm “women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners,” as California State University Professor Martin Fiebert shows in his online bibliography at www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm For example, a 32-nation study by the University of New Hampshire found women are as violent and controlling as men in dating relationships worldwide www.unh.edu/news/cj_nr/2006/may/em_060519male.cfm?type=n The Centers for Disease Control funded a major study of heterosexual relationships...

Groups like this are part of a growing, global men’s rights movement that advocates for equal treatment of men in areas such as child custody, domestic violence policies, reproductive rights, criminal sentencing, public health policies, paternity laws, the draft, dating expectations, and more.   Opponents of this movement tend to reactively look only at gender disparities at the top of society (government, CEOs) while overlooking the bottom, where men account for 80 to 90 percent of homeless adults, work-related deaths, prisoners, and suicide deaths, as well as 99 percent of combat deaths and the majority of dropouts and special education students.

Wave Newspaper, which focuses on the African-American community in Los Angeles, prints op ed by NCFM board member: “Rihanna-Brown incident an example of double standards in attitudes toward partner abuse.” http://www.wavenewspapers.com/opinion/op-ed/41340702.html: “If anything can be learned from the recent violence between Chris Brown and Rihanna, it is the sheer double standard that male victims of domestic violence still face. For centuries, the idea of battered men has been deemed humorous or unfathomable.

Men account for 80-95% of homeless adults, job deaths and suicide deaths, are more likely than women to have mental disabilities but less likely to be treated for them, and die younger and have higher mortality rates for 13 of the 15 leading causes of death.
