Our Dad

His three children are hunted away from any moment of comfort as…

The Branding Problem…

So, I’ve been thinking again…   Lately, the great Feminist comeback to criticism of Feminism has been going through a renaissance, courtesy of #Womenagainstfeminism.  It runs like this:  “X complaint isn’t really about Feminism,read a dictionary.”.  I really had to restrain myself to keep this as neutral sounding as I’ve seen it (all of twice),…

Men’s Rights Sydney Busts Some Myths

While perusing the Internet’s seedier gutters, as I am sometimes forced to do in fulfilling my duties here at Men’s Rights Sydney, I happened upon this noxious little nugget from what appears to be a feminist flavoured eMag called “Bust” (no, I’d never heard of it before either). Anyway, on this site was a trite little article titled “Men’s Rights…

The easy way versus the “right” way…

I’ve been pondering something of late.  In the wake of the positive and balanced coverage of Women Against Feminism (along with the usual negativity anyone critical of Feminism receives), I’ve been feeling a little vindicated, both personally and politically.  For some time now, I’ve been viewing the “heavy hitters” of the MHRA world, and noticing…

The most offensive posters ever

This is going to be a very short update. The  Stop Violence Against Everyone posters are as inoffensive as it is possible to be. They literally say that violence against everyone should be stopped, not just violence against women but including violence against women. By tearing down these posters these people are opposing the statement that reducing…

Nivea Fears Their Own Supporters

As regular readers may remember, way back in January we brought you news of the shenanigans going on at Nivea, our reaction to their latest sexist ad campaign, and their misrepresentations to the Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB) that assisted them in getting away with airing it. It was the last part of this that really stuck in our craw. The ASB rejected…

A letter to my son never born

Originally posted on A Voice for Men: and is republished here in its entirety with permission from the author January 21, 2013 By  Dr. F (Ian Williams) Dear son, Happy 18th birthday. Thank you for opening this letter to you not before this day as was my request written on the envelope. I know that you are doing well, and…

Personal Responsibility

Spider-Man was wrong. Well, his uncle was, anyway. The maxim “With great power comes great responsibility” isn’t exactly correct. Rather, the reverse is accurate: With personal responsibility comes greatness and personal power. Now, while you ponder that thought for a moment, let me add one more note so you know where I’m coming from. Normally…

Addressing Violence Against Women & Their Children

Recently Prime Minister Tony Abbott, in conjunction with the Minister for Social Services Kevin Andrews, and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women Michaelia Cash, published a press release addressing so-called “Violence against Women and ‘their’ Children”. Needless to say, and sadly, completely as expected, despite the fact that men are far more likely than women to be victims…

Why Do Women “Get It” Quicker Than Men?

Author: Catreece MacLeod I had an interesting conversation a few days ago with John Narayan of Melbourne Australia, and he had a question that I think warrants further discussion: He asked “Why do the women in the movement seem to just get it so much easier than the men?” I had a few answers for…
