…the most definitive research about intimate partner violence on the planet…

Gender and Racial/Ethnic Differences in Criminal Justice Decision Making in Intimate Partner Violence Cases The Partner Abuse State of Knowledge Project Manuscripts and Online Data Base Overview of Findings by the Authors Springer Publications   Introduction: Over the years, research on partner abuse has become unnecessarily fragmented and politicized. The purpose of The Partner Abuse State of Knowledge Project (PASK) is to bring together in a rigorously evidence –based, transparent and methodical manner existing knowledge about partner abuse with reliable, up-to-date research that can easily be accessed both by researchers and the general public. In March, 2010, the Senior Editor of Partner Abuse1, recruited family violence scholars from the United States, Canada, and the U.K., to conduct an extensive and thorough review of the empirical literature, in 17 broad topic areas. Researchers were asked to conduct a formal search...

NCFM College Ambassador Chris Thompson, Positive Family Traditions, TNT and NCFM adopts a highway

Positive Family Traditions, TNT and NCFM adopts a highway by: Christopher J Thompson I have been a member of the Bozeman Beautification Advisory Board for nearly a decade, helping plan the annual Bozeman Clean Up Day; unfortunately these meetings recently overlapped with my weekly “visitation” with my son and, rather than lose the little time I have with him, was forced to resign. Fortunately I noticed a sign that helped guide the way for an exciting contribution to my community, this one allowing me to bond with my five-year-old son TNT in the process. The Montana Department of Transportation’s “Adopt A Highway” program allows entities such as businesses, community groups, and families to adopt a two-mile stretch of highway, removing debris from their section of road in exchange for having their name posted on either side of their adopted...

Jamie Cox, Domestic Violence Betrayed

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BETRAYED By Jamie Cox, M.Ed. The accusation that blows the whistle on domestic violence is a life changer.  When valid, it can restore and rebuild a life.  When it’s a lie, it will rape and ravage.  Jails for the criminals and jails for the accused. While false accusations may not escalate to orange jumpsuits and prison bars, it ALWAYS devastates.  The loss of credibility, family, friends and career is a life changer. When you hear about domestic violence what comes to mind is physical brutality.  What’s lost in translation is the violence of the lie.  Sticks and stones break bones and words that lie break everything else. The number of men who have been ravaged by false accusations are too many to count and there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight.  Sure, there are laws...

NCFM NOTE: Mr. Davis is a leading domestic violence researcher, author, retired police officer, and college instructor. This article is well worth the read if you are interested in evidence-based practices for the Domestic Violence Industry. If the introduction below interests you the complete paper is online at http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474981868751 Evidence-Based Practices By Richard Davis Evidence-based practices are designed to introduce or maintain objectivity in our decision making processes (Macionis, 2011). Far too many domestic violence/aggression interventions, policies and programs that are presented to the criminal justice system are biased by ideological subjectivity rather than empirical objectivity (Dasgupta, 2003; Kruttschnitt, McLaughlin & Petrie, 2004; Tjaden & Thoennes, 2000). Too many 21st century public policy makers and domestic violence/aggression interveners remain focused on 20th century hypotheses and theories rather than 21st century evidence-based data (Black, et al., 2011; Fagan, 1996; Kruttschnitt, McLaughlin & Petrie,...

By JUDITH E. GROSSMAN I am a feminist. I have marched at the barricades, subscribed to Ms. magazine, and knocked on many a door in support of progressive candidates committed to women’s rights.

This article has been changed. The name of the woman alleged to have committed the offenses noted in the original letter was deleted. According to the original source, there is no conclusive evidence to support naming her, even though there is very strong circumstantial evidence. Efforts are underway to confirm that the woman earlier named is indeed the women in question. Obviously, there is no way to call back the letters sent. We still hope to hear back from Georgetown. http://www.avoiceformen.com/georgetown-university-and-men/georgetown-university-in-a-cover-up/   Gender discrimination and hate speech is apparently what we are teaching in our schools.

Letter: Columnist’s conclusion on alimony bill wrong The letter below was published in Florida Today on Wednesday, 4/17/13 and is followed by the column to which it responded. Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D. Letter: Columnist’s conclusion on alimony bill wrong http://www.floridatoday.com/article/20130417/OPINION/130416004/Letter-Columnist-s-conclusion-alimony-bill-wrong While I applaud columnist Paul Flemming for a sound review of the issues in Saturday’s “Alimony bill will be great — for lawyers,” his bottom-line conclusion is dead wrong. The proposed state alimony reform bill will reduce litigation, not increase litigation. A bit of history. For years, the divorce vultures (a.k.a., the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar) have conned the Florida Legislature into writing divorce legislation that maximizes litigation and thus maximizes their income. In part, they have accomplished this by maximizing judicial discretion, which in practice means endless conflict and, of course, endless paid litigation. No...

No price listed on book but available on amazon for $30. Review by J. Steven Svoboda. Mia Sage, a young coach and trainer from Berlin who is currently living in Spain, has produced one of the finest volumes I have had the privilege of reviewing ever since I started writing book reviews nearly two full decades ago.  “How to Talk to Men: The Geisha & the Gorilla” is so outstanding that its scope greatly exceeds its title, which in any event only describes a small portion of its topic of how women can maximize the effectiveness of their lives and their relationships.  Sage’s achievement inspires the reader and points us the way to improving ourselves and to...

Baby Girl versus Adoptive Parents, Adoption Agency, and the New York Times… Baby Girl wins

Baby Girl versus Adoptive Parents, Adoption Agency, and the New York Times… Baby Girl wins

The April 15, 2013 New York Times op-ed A Wrenching Adoption Case reveals more about the gender leanings of the newspaper than it does the facts of the case, which the editors either ignored; or, buried. In brief, this case, Adoptive Parents v. Baby Girl, has to do with purported violations of the Indian Child Welfare Act which, as the NY Times rightly notes,”… was passed in 1978 to prevent state and local welfare offices from separating Indian children from their parents, many without good reason, and placing them in non-Indian homes.” Baby Girl was born to an American Indian father and non American Indian mother. The biological parents were not married to each other and the father, supposedly and voluntarily, gave up his parental rights. The mother allowed Baby Girl to be adopted. The father later asserted his...

Endowed: Regulating the Male Sexed Body. By Michael Thomson. New York: Taylor & Francis Group, 2008. 194 pp. www.taylorandfrancis.com. No price stated but website gives price as 18.99 British pounds. Keele University Law Professor Michael Thomson has published his first book, and it’s a flawed yet truly thought-provoking examination of various aspects of the male body’s treatment in law and culture. (Full disclosure: I met Professor Thomson at a conference in 2006 and spent some brief yet treasured time with him.) Thomson addresses a variety of seemingly disparate topics, including the law and ethics of male circumcision, legal developments relating to protecting women of reproductive age (or all women) from workplace hazards, the path of Viagra and its competitors through our society including advertising and promoting of it, sperm donor identification policies, and the interrelationship of sports, sexual violence,...

“Restraining Order Terrorism” — the Pauley Perrette/Francis “Coyote” Shivers case…the beginning of the end

A Voice For Men is exposing the corruption in the Pauley Perrette — Francis “Coyote” Shivers high profile restraining order case. NCFM became interested and we asked Private Investigator Michael Conzachi (Michael Conzachi resume) to attend a recent court hearing at the Airport Branch of the Los Angeles Superior Court last Friday to see what his impressions were. In his investigative report below, Mr. Conzachi writes that Mr. Francis “Coyote” Shivers, alleged criminal, probation violator, and otherwise horrible human being is none of those. He is in fact a decent guy being railroaded by an uncaring criminal justice system apparently more interested in catering to Hollywood elite than justice. Ms. Pauley Perrette, one of the stars of the CBS television show NCIS, accused Coyote, her ex-husband, of violating a restraining order when he showed up at a restaurant where...

NCFM MSU in the news for wanting to cure rape hysteria…

Men’s group wants to cure Montana’s ‘rape hysteria’ The National Coalition for Men has its sights set on starting a chapter at the University of Montana next fall. NCFM Campus coordinator and spokesman Christopher Thompson said that he is working on meeting with fraternities in the next few weeks to get them on board with the NCFM platform. NCFM started out in 1977 as a male response to the feminist movement. Thompson started a chapter at Montana State University last year, and the group now has 15 members. Nationwide, the group has attracted controversy and criticism. It’s been called sexist and misogynistic, but Thompson said the group is misunderstood. “I would say in a sense, it’s about true gender equality,” Thompson said. “Right now things aren’t equal in a lot of ways. We’ve got a of lot laws that...

CHANGING THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SCENE Denial was always the reality protecter that insulated the family from the truth.  Her boys never said anything and her husband’s voice never once uttered what his eyes revealed.  After all, who could acknowledge a mother abusing her sons.  It was those soccer parents witnessing what Pat was doing that brought everything into focus. Mike got me involved in this domestic violence picture when he asked for help.  He shared an unsettling story of how others intervened and stopped his wife from hitting their youngest boy.  Police got involved, charges were filed, there was a court hearing and then everything got settled.  A suspended sentence, fines, domestic violence classes, separation, individual counseling, anger management classes, group counseling, family counseling and then everyone all back together like everything is normal.  The criminal justice system seems...

On 3/25/13, NCFM’s Vice President, Marc Angelucci, was an invited guest speaker before a Sociology class of about 30-40 students at El Camino Community College near Redondo Beach, California.  The Professor had invited Angelucci to speak about male victims of domestic violence and particularly NCFM’s legal victory in Woods v. Horton (2008) 167 Cal.App.4th 648, which held it is unconstitutional to exclude male victims the statutory funding provisions or from state-funded services.  Before the lecture the Professor displayed a PowerPoint image of NCFM’s street rally against Verizon’s anti-father domestic violence ad.  The presentation lasted about 40 minutes.  Angelucci began by talking about NCFM and how he got involved as a laws student back in 1998.  Then he discussed the events that led up to the Woods case, including the discrimination against male victims and their children in state-funded DV programs, how the late Patricia Overberg, director of Valley Oasis shelter in Lancaster, was mistreated by other shelters for helping battered men, the...

It’s interesting that the LA Times even considered publishing the article since historically the news paper has not been very supportive of injustices committed against men as a group.

NCFM Campus Ambassador Chris Thompson reports on university kangaroo justice and how to create criminals out of innocent men

NCFM NOTE: Notice here how DOE directives gutting due process procedures coincide with the DOJ’s  lowered standards of evidence and expansive new definition of sexual assault/rape. This trick to further disenfranchise males is epic. First, expand the definition of something that is believed to be a horrific offense to women which necessarily creates more criminals from those previously innocent of whatever crime is created through the expanded definition. Next, pound into the public that the horrific offense against women is massive. Then quietly through administrative fiat make it easier to convict those who were previously innocent of any related crime before the expanded definition. Do you get it? Chris Thompson does. Here’s how it works in action: ______________________________________ The University of Montana has become an epicenter of rape hysteria and now, men’s activism The Department of Education issued its...

NCFM Member Joe Manthey, “Blaming Men Doesn’t Solve Domestic Violence”

Lately our community has been bombarded with a United Nations (UN) claim that “One In Three Women On The Planet Will Be Raped Or Beaten In Her Lifetime.” The UN fails to cite any sources for this claim and the latest UN report Prevention of violence against women and girls. Report of the Secretary-GeneralE/CN.6/2013/4 on violence against women provided by a UN media officer when asked for such does not make the “one in three” claim. By extrapolation of this “lifetime” figure, Eve Ensler, founder of the Vagina Monologues, assumes that, worldwide, one billion women have been raped or beaten. Consequently, this year’s V-Day theme is “One Billion Rising.” Ensler used war-stricken Congo as an example in an attempt to persuade the public of her one billion estimate, reasoning that because one in three women in the Congo are...

Author says, “VAWA: Well Intentioned, Poorly Executed”. Hmm…

Tomorrow the House of Representatives will most likely sell out the American people and re authorize one of the worse pieces of legislation since Jim Crow laws, VAWA. The re authorization  over the next five years will cause tens of thousands of innocent people to be labeled criminals and thousands of families to be destroyed by overzealous prosecutions. It’s a sad day when our elected officials bend over for an ideology riddled with demagoguery, lies, and threats rather than stand tall for truth and justice.

Author explains why men earn more Warren Farrell says choices in life are often the cause of lower pay Women are systemically underpaid in part because they consciously or unknowingly make choices in their careers that lead to being paid less down the line, an author and educator says. Warren Farrell, author of a half-dozen books including Why Men Earn More, told the CBC’s Lang & O’Leary Exchange recently that his research shows the well-documented tendency of women to be paid less than their male counterparts is more a result of individual actions than of chronic, widespread gender discrimination in the workplace. His latest book outlines 25 choices that female workers tend to make that often lead to them being underpaid down the line. Conversely, those choices often lead to more balanced, happier lives. “Really, men should be learning...

NCFM President Harry Crouch on radio panel discussing domestic violence

Several years ago, in 2005 to be precise, the Faith Based Subcommittee of the San Diego Domestic Violence Council, of which I was a member, developed Safe Faith Place Communities, a nondenominational domestic violence information, education, referral and awareness program. We developed a comprehensive handbook, a glossy multi-page brochure to include a full page about abused men, business card size information cards, and trained volunteers in several congregations to operate the program. We adopted “relationship violence” as an inclusive core tenant. We included child abuse, intimate partner violence, elder abuse, and other forms of relationship violence, including recognizing abused men. In fact, as far as I can determine, other than flyers and brochures developed by NCFM and Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) this is one of the earliest brochures outside of the Men’s rights movement to embrace and recognize...

Republican House Speaker John Boehner joins the Democrats in selling out abused men

NCFM NOTE: The letter below is posted here for several reasons, one of which is to re enforce the fact that NCFM is nonpartisan. Last year we supported the House version of the re authorization of VAWA because it included many sensible reforms that would have better embraced abused men. The current version, Boehner’s version, does not. In fact, it is very similar to the Senate version which recently passed with even more destructive provisions. It now appears that our elected leadership in both the Senate and the House have no real regard for men except perhaps using them as cannon fodder. Disgusting. Representative Boehner and Cantor, before the Congressional Christmas break, stood tall and helped and strenuously opposed an earlier gender biased Senate bill offered up by Democrats. Opponents to serious VAWA reforms have increased their demagoguery, misrepresentation,...

NCFM Advisor Gordon Finley, Ph.D, VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) ignores reality

    The above letter was faxed to 396 members in the House of Representatives and 96 U.S. Senators. For various reasons beyond our control 160 of the 492 faxes sent did not reach the intended recipients. We’ve heard that Speaker of the House John Boehner (R) has been persuaded to soon introduce for a vote his House re authorization version of the VAWA. Our sources tell us that Representative Boehner seems to have acquiesced to Senator Patrick Leahy’s legislation which recently passed the Senate with only 22 dissenting votes. Meaning, Boehner, like Leahy, either doesn’t have a clue about the domestic violence industry, think that women never ever abuse anyone especially men (laughable on its face), or they’ve sold out to special interests and/or been cowed by radical feminist pressure (or all of those reasons).

As reported by MailOnline earlier this week, research in Scotland claims that women who have frequent vaginal orgasms are more likely to credit larger penises for them. Stuart Brody, a psychologist at the University of West Scotland, surveyed 323 women on their previous sexual encounters and whether length influenced their ability to climax. Apparently, the women who reported the highest number of vaginal orgasms were more likely to rule that bigger was better. Brody told Live Science: ‘This might be due, in part, to...
