Men challenging laws forcing non-fathers to pay child support
Sunday, June 16, 2002, David Crary, Sacramento Bee
Talking both ways. It should be noted that the same people who use the argument that fraud should not count after 6 months do NOT argue that no murder, or abuse, or Income Tax issues, should be forgiven after 6 months because a child might be affected (again). This duplicity makes normal people sick.

Teacher faces 'petting' trial
Sunday, June 23, 2002, Rob Granastein, Toronto Sun
Another woman teacher, molesting her students, start her trial. The others are all acquitted -- and encouraged -- will this one be better? Will the broken psyches of the boys mean anything to the courts in Ontario?

The feminists kept mum on the real story of motherhood
Thursday, June 27, 2002, Alex May, Sydney Morning Herald
Of course the feminists lie about having kids and needing kids. Why would they limit their lying?

Feminist shifts focus to boys
Thursday, June 27, 2002, Anne Marie Owens, National Post
Feminist who made her money destroying schools in the name of protecting girls, seeks to repeat the task with the genders switched. And who says it isn't profitable to wound people so you can open the only treatment facilities.

Men as likely to face abuse from partner, Statscan says
Thursday, June 27, 2002, Krista Foss, The Globe and Mail
More on the StatsCan study. You can see the study for yourself in the Domestic Violence section of the site. Please note: these statistics are from the 2000 study, restated in the 2002 to attempt to downplay the magnitude and impact on the violence against men -- and how the police and courts ignore it.
"Study: Men not reporting spousal abuse"
Wednesday, June 26, 2002, Judy Monchuk, Canadian Press
Lots of rationalisations based on fantasy, not on what is in the statistics. The StatsCan study shows clearly that men don't report, and when they do they are ignored by the police and the courts. Is it any wonder with the type of biased judiciary and inadequate information provided to the courts, the Crown and the politicians that men have learned.

Panel votes to keep policy on arrest files
Friday, June 28, 2002, Vernon Clement Jones, The Globe and Mail
Toronto Police decide to keep track of all their mistakes to make sure that the victims of their wrongful arrest are persecuted by future employers and civic groups. Hopefully, they will immediately arrest the panel for something disgusting.

A jab at violence
Thursday, June 27, 2002, Toronto Sun
Parents are not longer the key in solving the exposure to violence. The gender bias and emotional violence directed by the media, the teachers, the judges, the police, and the "child protection" people surround everyone in Canada with the toxic environment of violence.

Husband says his wife is innocent of plotting to kill him
Thursday, June 27, 2002, The Union Leader & New Hampshire Sunday News
Talk about denial -- her ex-new boyfriend reported to protect the husband, and still Jimmy Galford wants to believe otherwise. Remember, according to the US stats, most woman plan their separation for at least 18 months before it happens, and rarely does the guy expect it.
Marlow man can’t believe wife conspired to have ex-boyfriend poison him
Wednesday, June 26, 2002, Stephen Seitz, The Union Leader & New Hampshire Sunday News
Poor guy in New Hampshire cannot believe that the woman, Corrine Galford, he dedicated his life to, who he committed to have children with, who he loved with all his heart would turn around and stab him -- or in this case poison him. This is a man who has not seen separation or the cruel manipulation of innocent young childrne to hate him. Time to learn. Woman are five times more likely to kill the guy they are living with, than to kill and ex, at least in Canada.

"Spousal murder rates at 26-year low; highest rates in West, lowest in Nfld."
Wednesday, June 26, 2002, Judy Monchuk, Canadian Press
Not quite right, but the rate of death of women falling faster than men. I would note that the very small number of deaths relative to the Canadian population makes this type of analysis pretty inadequate at year-over-year fluctuations are will within the error measurement expected. It should also be noted that his covers "homicides" identified by the police -- and changed later. This does not cover the killings that the police don't call a homicide (or don't court) -- usually of men.
Marital bliss?
Thursday, June 27, 2002, Toronto Sun
A rather crappy misdirection of the statistics. Seems to be the way of the Sun.

Custody Decisions Biased Toward Men, NOW Says
Wednesday, June 26, 2002, Jennifer Sinco Kelleher, Los Angeles Times
NOW says family court corrupt, harms children
Tuesday, June 25, 2002, Troy Anderson, Los Angeles Daily News
While FACT would agree on the corruption of family court and the harm done to children, this report is so fantastically gender-biased and factually incorrect, that it is too corrosive to stock the outhouse or put on the bottom of a bird cage. However, one would note one thing from the sludge that the feminist groups such as this present -- what they complain about is actually what their current policy is. This is but one reason these women will not stand up and even try to defend the indefensible abuse in the report. You can read this pile on their website at http://www.canow.org/fam.html.

'I tried my best to become a good mother to my babies'
Friday, June 21, 2002, Mayumi Futamura and Jason van Rassel, Calgary Herald
Apparent attempt to justify the unjustifiable. At this point the papers stopped tracking the story. One expects that nothing much will befall Fujii -- after all she killed only children. Women can kill with relative impunity in Canada.

Study: Women lie for others, men lie for themselves
Wednesday, June 12, 2002, Sarah Schmidt, National Post
Not sure that the "for others" is for others, but then maybe that is what the female researcher and female writer felt was the "polite" way of saying it. (Sorry, it was just too tempting given the article.)
