Women’s Duty To Men

By
Women’s Duty To Men

Women’s Duty To Men by JOE ZAMBONI on DECEMBER 28, 2012 The duties that American men have to American women are many, and consistently enforced by a variety of heavy-handed mechanisms such as mandatory jail-time, court-imposed fines, the yanking of your driver’s license, and separation from your children. As if that wasn’t enough to force you to comply, there is also being disqualified for financial aid in college, community shaming, and denial of sex. The duties of men to women very importantly include the duty to protect. This more generally could be defined as the duty to be drafted, to go off to war and die, to be maimed for life, or to be tortured by the psychological harm that one suffered as a result of one’s violent military experience. On a more personal level, this duty takes the form of the...

NCFM PR Director Steven Svoboda recommends reading “The End of Men—And the Rise of Women”

The End of Men—And the Rise of Women. By Hanna Rosin. New York: Riverhead (Penguin) Books, 2012. Riverheadbooks.com.  $27.95.  310 pages. Review by J. Steven Svoboda   Hanna Rosin, a senior editor of The Atlantic, has produced an interesting, potentially groundbreaking book based on a cover article she wrote in 2010 for the magazine she edits.  The End of Men suffers from some annoying shortcomings but also has much to recommend it and is the first book of which I am aware to direct itself to what could eventually become a calamitous crisis: the failure of men to keep up with women in employment and in life.   We are in the midst of a transition that to some extent has been going on for three decades or more.  Women’s people skills are becoming more important in the new...

[North Korean women at work] Out Of Desperation, North Korean Women Become Breadwinners…hmmm

Out Of Desperation, North Korean Women Become Breadwinners by Louisa Lim December 28, 201212:11 PM Listen to the Story, NPR, All Things Considered, but remember NPR is pro women and anti men, so take this with a few grains of salt and a healthy portion of doubt. NPR creates the impression that unemployed North Korean men do nothing. They don’t cook, clean, do chores, look for work, help with raising children… they just wake up, wait for their helpless wives, like those above, to come home from work so they can beat them, then the unemployed husbands go to sleep, wake up and do the same day after day after day. We’ve heard NPR has an in with the Easter Bunny too. ) ____________________________________________________ Imagine going to work every day and not getting paid. Then, one day, you’re told...

Charles Corry, Ph.D, Frontline officer view of domestic violence laws

Frontline officer view of domestic violence laws The author is a 28-year veteran of a metropolitan police force in a western state Mandatory and pro-arrest policies pushed by radical feminists and the federal government regarding domestic violence have all but eliminated officer discretion on the matter throughout the country. Fear of the potential consequences for using discretion has our officers in a headlock. Few have the moral courage to exercise it resulting in many unnecessary arrests that consequently damage the American family. Scenario: A woman has been drinking adult beverages throughout the evening. Her husband and she argue over finances. She tries to walk to the car and he grabs her by the wrist in order to prevent her from driving. She screams, pulls away and falls twisting her ankle in the driveway while the kids look on. The...

NCMF faxes letter to all members of Congress about the hypocracy of those pushing for Senate version of VAWA

By
NCMF faxes letter to all members of Congress about the hypocracy of those pushing for Senate version of VAWA

Shameless Hypocrisy In recent weeks, Domestic Violence Industry operatives – including several lawmakers – have claimed the Violence Against Women Act needs to help “all” victims of domestic violence. Yet, these same people appear on talk show after talk show advocating for VAWA to provide for immigrant women, American Indian women, lesbian women…but no mention of men, heterosexual, gay, or other. The VAWA funded National Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s (NCADV) massive directory of over 2000 domestic violence programs notes how vital it is to advocate for “women and children.” Some shelter programs in the directory allow mothers with male children. Thousands of programs are listed for women. There are none specifically for males. Yet, the CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey and numerous other scientific studies found men and women equally engage in partner aggression. Moreover, intimate...

NCFM sends letter to Congress to Stop the Violence Against Women Act’s War on Men

The “War on Women” essentially is a power and control grab and guilt trip diversion by the National Organization of Women (NOW) cartel.  No one is waging war on women. However, it is impossible to rationally conclude that political forces are not waging “War on Men.” The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is center stage to the War Against Men. NCFM Advisor Phil Cook and I over a decade ago discussed what I call the Women Industry Wheel (WIW), though it might be more aptly called the Women Industry War Wagon Wheel (WIWWW). Phil thought VAWA was the hub of the wheel while I still think VAWA is the grease that keeps it turning. The hub, in my opinion, is radical feminism’s “politically correct” influence and resulting control of our educational system, especially in higher education. Looking at things...

Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D. _______________________ By Gordon E. Finley, professor of Psychology Emeritus, Florida International University – 12/13/12 06:39 PM ET While the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) claims to fairly protect all victims of domestic violence, in reality it intentionally discriminates against about half of the victims — men (“Progressive groups pressure House GOP to pass Violence Against Women Act,” Dec. 11). First, social science research literature is unambiguously clear. Domestic violence is initiated about equally by men and women; slightly more women than men are physically harmed, but men nonetheless still represent more than 40 percent of the physically harmed...

NCFM files complaint against Michigan Circuit Court Judge Wade McCree Jr. for being stupid

NCFM NOTE: This guy is stupid beyond belief. Judge McCree was barely hanging onto his judgeship after sending a nude picture of himself (waist up and buff) to his female bailiff. Her husband complained. Judge McCreep was censored. Then the jerk along with jerkessa Geniene La’Shay Mott played sex games in his office, get pregnant, and conspired to send Mott’s ex husband to jail for failure to pay child support! Who let this guy out of law school? But it takes two to Karmasutra all over his desk, chairs, couch, floor… Ms. Mott must have known she was committing adultery. She surely knew that conspiring with the judge to send her ex  husband to jail was at least tampering with justice. But the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office won’t charge her. The big bad man in the black robe did...

NCFM sends letter to Kansas City Chiefs re Belcher/Perkins murder/suicide.

NCFM NOTE: After numerous media reports exploiting the Jovan Belcher murder/suicide as a “domestic violence” incident we felt it necessary to send a letter to the Kansas City Chiefs. Various women groups used this horrendous family failure to promote their own interests including at least one that volunteered to work with the Chiefs to prevent such things in the future. We thought it might be more productive if an organization for men, that is an organization that works with men, one that better understands their needs, helped. Hence our letter. Here’s an example of the shameful exploitation of this incident to promote passage of the Violence Against Women Act, which by the way, if reauthorized would do nothing to prevent murder/suicide. “MSNBC contributor Karen Finney used the Jovan Belcher murder-suicide to attack Republicans. Finney stated that the Belcher tragedy...

Female Teachers Give Male Pupils Lower Grades, Claims Study

Female teachers mark male pupils more harshly than they do their female students, research has claimed. Additionally, girls tend to believe male teachers will look upon them more favourably than female teaching staff, but men treat all students the same, regardless of gender. The study, released on Thursday, told 1,200 students in 29 schools to place financial bets on who would give them higher grades: external examiners or their teacher.  Conducted by professors Amine Ouazad and Lionel Page, for the London School of Economic’s Centre for Economic Performance, the report said: “Male students tend to bet less when assessed by a female teacher than by an external examiner or by a male teacher. This is consistent with female teachers’ grading practices; female teachers give lower grades to male students. “Female students bet more when assessed by a male...

Gordon Finley: Permanent alimony unfair to so many The Commentary below was published in the Readers View section of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel editorial page on Monday, December 3, 2012. It is followed by the editorial which initiated it. Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D. Gordon Finley: Permanent alimony unfair to so many http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/opinion/fl-readers-view-permanent-alimony-20121203,0,639327.story Thank you for this terrific editorial (“Change permanent alimony,” Nov. 25). If they have worked all their lives, most men in the current retirement generation look forward to comfort in their golden years. However, if the family courts have assigned them permanent alimony, the golden years are enjoyed only by the ex-wife, as the former husband either is required to keep working or to continue to pay generally exorbitant sums to his ex from whatever he has left in old age. Permanent alimony today is not fair...

Permanent alimony virtually mandates single-mother households so that the recipient doesn’t lose their life-long alimony payments. Second, in today’s economy, many young adult children of divorce are in dire need of financial assistance. So, who is most deserving of the payer’s money: The former spouse, the children...

NCFM Advisor Warren Farrell assaulted by misandric radical feminists in Canada

NCFM NOTE: The following rant about misandry was submitted in a different section of this  site. We thought it deserved better exposure so here it is as a separate post. It concerns the author’s,  “J’,” opinions about what happened at a recent Warren Farrell lecture in Canada. The lecture was picketed by a group of radical feminist ideologues so incensed by Mr. Farrell’s appearance that police had to be called to break up what some would call a riot. This incredulous demonstration is another frightening example of brainwashed Canadian university students run amok. Anyone who has met Mr. Farrell, followed his career, read his books, heard his lectures, knows that he seeks truth among all things. He is a fair man who spends incredible time and resources researching things so that his words and thoughts are better grounded than...

Again, they’re way ahead of us.  “Men in Germany, Austria and Switzerland have all come together in their respective countries in recent years to establish associations focusing on problems facing males and the Austrian Labor Ministry has even created a section devoted specifically to the subject. In 2004, the ministry held the first ever European fatherhood conference.  Schröder herself explained her own focus on men’s issues in an open letter published in the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in the spring of 2011. ‘We have become so used the monopolistic claims of women’s rights activists on issues relating to gender equality that the idea of including boys and men to a greater degree in the debate has, in the best case, been ignored and in the worst case been branded as a betrayal of the goals pursued by the women’s...

Jeff entered into the New Hampshire divorce courts like most fathers.  Using no-fault divorce, his wife sued him, filed a motion for a secret hearing, where his children were taken from him, a monthly payment for child support was ordered to prevent his being able to afford representation, and a guardian ad litem was appointed to provide expert witness testimony that the children were harmed with Jeff, in spite of the fact that the guardian ad litem was not an expert on anything. In order for the removal of the children to stick, expert testimony is needed to provide cover for the judges, because judges are supposed to rule independently on the evidence brought forward by the parties to support their cases.  It wouldn’t look objective if the judges brought forward the evidence and then ruled on it, so...

Female infant circumcision is rightfully illegal but it is Ok to circumcise infant males! Bull. On October 20, 2012, NCFM members Carl Agustsson and Marc Angelucci participated in a protest against infant male genital cutting outside of the national meeting of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) at the Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.  The protest was organized by the organization Intact America to challenge the AAP for its recent decision that folded to political pressure and altered its prior position that there are no medical benefit for routine infant male circumcision.  The AAP’s new report still did not recommend circumcision but found there are medical benefits that outweighs the harms. In 2010, the AAP issued a report stating “female genital mutilation” is unacceptable other than a non-mutilating incision, or “cultural nick.”  Then, in response to public outcry, the AAP changed its position...

After the fathers in New Hampshire got together in recent years via social media, we came to realize that even though the facts of our cases were different, the courts treated our cases in similar ways.  Sequential actions were conducted that first took our children away in secret hearings that we had no recourse to.  Then, we were called in for a hearing about the children, we were hit with immediate child support orders, which often prevented us from affording competent legal representation.  Thirdly, we couldn’t get our children back, and if we did, it was years later and in extremely restricted ways.  Lastly, after the children were taken and our income and assets attached, we were threatened with incarceration for non-payment of fees to court officials or the custodial parents, most always mothers, resulting in homelessness and loss...

File a Federal Complaint

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.
