Anonymous has alerted me to a new initiative by Masculinist Evolution New Zealand (MENZ), the organisation for angry men. Next week, MENZ are going to get hip with the youth, distributing leaflets at universities in the Auckland area.
The leaflet, which can be downloaded from this page, begins:
If you’re a man, then you really should reflect on how worthless you have become, and you should also recognise that there is very little concern neither for how badly you might be injured physically, nor for how long-term might be your psychological hurt. And, one day, whether you’re sitting in some unfamiliar surroundings wondering how it is that you’ve actually managed to lose your home, your children, and much of your future income, or whether you’re defending yourself in a courtroom against a false and malicious accusation of some sexual sort, or whether you’re dying in a hospital from some male-specific disease that no-one has been funded to research properly, or whether you’ve been passed over for promotion because of your male gender, or whether your children are being brought up to look upon you as if you were some kind of potential abuser, or, perhaps, when you are lying in the road because your partner has attacked you with a knife, and yet it is YOU who gets arrested, then, surely, even a piece of sh*t like you - because, quite clearly, this is what you are - will finally wake up and realise that you are considered by your society to be completely expendable, and well and truly worthless.It's all about "going to the younger male generation and providing them with not just information but a journey." ¡¡ROADTRIP!! Not surpisingly, required reading for the journey includes Eve's Bite. The leaflet, after that inspiring introduction, goes on to pose such questions as "do men get paid more than women," the answer being:
No, the gender pay gap does not exist. Men and women get the same pay for the same job. The fabricated problem lies with males and females choosing different jobs with different risks. If females were to choose jobs such as mining and working on sky scrapers, they too would get danger money. The other reason is that women prefer to work part-time to raise their children.I could comment about disgruntled wife-beaters who have been dumped by their long-suffering wives and now blame their misfortunes on the Vast Feminist Conspiracy, but I shall move on. The Herald reports that the country's only Men's refuge has opened in Tauranga "to accommodate local fathers when their marriages collapse and out-of-town fathers visiting their children..." Correct me if I am wrong but isn't that more of a hostel than a refuge? Are not women's refuges for women who are hiding from their violent husbands, not merely looking for somewhere to stay?
Here's Yo La Tengo, again.
