Article here. Excerpt:

'I’ve never attacked my partner. I’ve never sexually harassed someone at work. And I’ve never masturbated into a pot plant while someone watched.
...
So I set out to make #YesAllMen – a documentary that aims to reframe the debate about masculinity. I wanted to understand some of the key social issues Australian men are facing and find the human stories behind the alarming statistics.'

Voting form here. Elections are as much about who you vote against as who you vote for, and female candidates are openly appealing to female members to vote on the basis of their gender, despite homelessness/lack of secure housing predominately affecting men in Australia. From the SA candidate profiles:

'Julie Blake, Chief Executive Officer, Westside Housing Association
...
In a sector where the majority of service delivery staff are female but the top executive roles are predominantly held by men, I am proud to set an example for younger professionals in our sector to aspire to the top roles such as CEO in the sector.'

High School Girls Admitted to Making False Sexual Assault Accusations Against a Male Student Because They ‘Just Don’t Like Him’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Seneca Valley School District in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is facing a lawsuit from a former male student who was forced out of school—and investigated for sexual assault—due to a series of false accusations made by female students.

The girls—dubbed "mean girls" in the lawsuit, a reference to the 2004 Lindsay Lohan film—admitted on tape that they made up the assault story. One said, "I just don't like him" and "[I] would do anything to get him expelled," according to The Toronto Sun.

The false allegations were life-derailing for the accused, who is referred to as "T.F." in the lawsuit. On October 3, 2017, one of the girls told other students that T.F. had sexually assaulted her at a pool; a Seneca Valley guidance counselor overheard the accusation, and reported it to Childline, the state's child abuse prevention agency, as required by law. T.F. was swiftly charged with indecent assault and harassment, and received six months of probation as part of a plea deal.
...
By the end of the summer, the conspiracy against T.F. was unmasked: other students came forward with Snapchat messages that contradicted the claims of the "mean girls," who eventually admitted to lying. All charges against T.F. were dropped.

But T.F.'s family is understandably distraught that the girls have suffered no consequences: neither the police nor the school district have taken any action against them, according to the lawsuit. And so the family is pursuing legal action against the girls' parents, the school district, and the district attorney.'

Major Women’s Groups Silent On Hillary Clinton’s ‘Abuse Of Power’ Comments

Article here. Excerpt:

'Hillary Clinton set the internet ablaze on Sunday when she told CBS’s “Sunday Morning” that the affair between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power.

The former secretary of state’s remark ― as well as her suggestion that her husband’s sexual relationship with Lewinsky was consensual because Lewinsky had been “an adult” at the time ― appeared at odds with the Me Too movement Clinton herself has championed.

Lewinsky, who was 22 at the time of the affair, previously said that her sexual encounters with Bill Clinton had been consensual, but has reconsidered that view recently. Several other women have accused the former president of sexual misconduct going as far back as the 1970s, which he has vehemently denied.'

Camille Paglia: Feminism Based on Destroying Men Is ‘Absolute Poison’ to Culture

October 15th, 2018

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'The feminist icon – who prefers the original brand of feminism that won women the right to vote and raised up heroines such as Katharine Hepburn, Amelia Earhart, and Anne Morrow Lindbergh – said the more recent second wave of feminism is “an absolute poison that has spread worldwide.”

Paglia said the original feminists “admired what men had done – there was no male-bashing – as became systemic to second-wave feminism.”

The brand of feminism recreated by Betty Friedan in the 1960s, Paglia said, is now based on “denigrating men” and “defining men as oppressors and tyrants through history.”

“It is an absolute lie,” she said, “an extrapolation of neuroticism on the part of these fanatics.”

Hating Men: The New Racism

October 15th, 2018

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'Bigotry is bad – no matter who the victim.

When it comes to racism, America has made it clear that prejudice based on color cannot be tolerated. Roseanne Barr destroyed her career with just one racist twitter and had to be removed from her own show for the transgression of an offensive comment.

Equality is in; demeaning stereotyping is not only out but seemingly bad enough to be deemed unforgivable.

Except when one group is the target.

What normally dare never be said in polite and civilized society appears to be permissible – and sometimes laudable – when directed against no less than half the population, a group which prominent intellectuals, professors and journalists assure us deserve universal condemnation.

Who are these terrible people exempt from the sin of stereotyping?

They are men – those terrible evil representatives of the human race who are all beasts and pigs, rapists in hiding, sexual harassers and violent perverts.'

CBS’s “Mom” promotes DV — again

October 14th, 2018

Article Source
Posted in MensActivism.org

Video here. Season 6, episode 1. For at least the second time, the Bonnie character smacks her boyfriend, this time because she is upset about a dream she had wherein he was cheating on her. Jump to time mark 7:54 and watch.

Casual smacking of husbands and boyfriends isn't like punching or kicking. But it's still DV. Using physical acts on another person's body that are essentially violent in nature is abusive, especially if it's between intimates. It need not leave marks or scars nor be physically significant. It is the act itself that is abusive.

Last time I noticed this Bonnie-smacking-boyfriend thing I asked readers to submit feedback to the show. Guess that didn't work. I would suggest people contact the actress who plays Bonnie, Allison Janney, but while she is the actress doing the smacking, bear in mind she has a job to do. That she is doing it doesn't mean she agrees with it. I thought that by petitioning her to discuss this aspect of their show with directors et al., it may have more effect. Alas I have been unable to locate an on-line means to contact her. I could include a snail-mail address but few if anyone would likely be bothered writing an actual letter.

So we'll try letting CBS know what we think again. Maybe this time they will pay better attention. You can contact them at https://audienceservices.cbs.com/feedback/feedback.htm. Under "Choose Category", pick "Mom". Feel free to include the link to this entry here on MANN ( http://news.mensactivism.org/?q=node/32405 ) to let them know that indeed, they ARE in fact being watched. And while many of us may find the show amusing, there is room for improvement.

Austrian politician convicted of libel for accusing man of sexual harassment on Facebook

Article here. Excerpt:

'In an unprecedented case, a judge at the Regional Court for Criminal Matters in Vienna ruled that Green Party politician Sigrid Maurer libeled the owner of a city craft beer store because she couldn’t prove that he actually posted the harassing messages on his Facebook account.

In March, Maurer, 33, an advocate for women's rights, received obscene Facebook messages from the account of  the owner of the store, where she walks by frequently. One said, “Hello you went to my shop today and looked at my c--- as if you wanted to eat it.“

Maurer posted the messages on Facebook and Twitter, including his name and the store's name. "There was no other way to defend myself," she said.
...
The beer store's owner, whose name can remain private under Austrian law,  may yet receive punishment if an investigation finds he gave false testimony. The judge asked government prosecutors to look into the case. If he is found to have lied, he could face three years in jail.'

What Do You Do When You Are Anonymously Accused of Rape?

October 14th, 2018

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Again, keep company with vile feminists, this is the result. Excerpt:

'What do you do if you are accused of sexual misconduct and believe yourself to be innocent?

If you’re Brett Kavanaugh, you go nuclear. But if you’re a progressive man who sees himself as a feminist ally, the politically acceptable strategy is to keep quiet and lay low. If you do anything at all, put out a statement saying you support the #MeToo movement, that it’s an overdue and necessary corrective, and that you are taking some time for self-reflection. Spend some months ordering takeout and avoiding parties where everyone is whispering about what they think you did.

Stephen Elliott, the founder of the left-wing website The Rumpus, followed that script. A year ago this month, his name appeared along with some 70 others on an anonymously sourced Google spreadsheet. It was called the Shitty Media Men list and the accusations ranged in severity from “weird lunch dates” to “rape.”

Rape is what Stephen Elliott was accused of. His entry, along with more than a dozen others on the list, was highlighted in red to denote physical violence. It read: “Rape accusations, sexual harassment, coercion, unsolicited invitations to his apartment, a dude who snuck into Binders” (a women-only Facebook group).

But on Wednesday, the day before the statute of limitations ran out, Mr. Elliott stopped lying low and sued the creator of the list for defamation. He filed a federal lawsuit in the Eastern District of New York against “Moira Donegan and Jane Does (1-30)” seeking $1.5 million in damages.'

Men as the real victims? After Kavanaugh, #HimToo gains attention

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'The notion that it is dangerous to be an American man in the #MeToo era took off during the angry debate over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

But tossing more fuel onto the fire were a sarcastic tirade from Donald Trump and a painfully awkward tweet from a seemingly over-anxious mother.

On the day Kavanaugh was sworn in as the junior justice to the high court, Pieter Hanson's mother posted a message on the social media network comparing the plight of the jurist -- who had vigorously denied allegations of sexual aggression -- to the dating challenges facing her 32-year-old son.'
