DOUBLE STANDARDS – Facebook and misandry

The response typically is that all the actual violence seems to be coming from feminists and that this accusation is just the product of projection.…

PARENTING – Custody battles and dirty tricks

Stories of mothers resorting to dirty tricks to get custody and/or total control of their children away from their fathers are legion – and when I say dirty tricks, I mean the lowest kind of abuse of process and the legal system and utter contempt for any kind of decency – false accusation of sexual abuse, false accusations of domestic abuse, false rape accusations.…

IT’S SHIT LIKE THIS, FEMINISTS – This Is Why Male Rape Survivors Don’t Come Forward (or Gendered Victim-Blaming)
