Diluted Megan's Law on the Way.

"Single mothers will be able to ask the police to check the background of a new partner to find out whether he is a sex offender under moves being considered by the Home Office", according to The Guardian.

It seems that the same courtesy is not being extended to single fathers. And there was me thinking that feminists were opposed to gender-specific legislation.

"The proposals...are seen as an attempt by the government to respond to demands for greater disclosure of the whereabouts of paedophiles, triggered by a number of high profile cases such as the murder of eight-year-old Sarah Payne."

Still no acknowledgement of the fact that there are female child sex offenders (Reference). This is due to lack of public awareness, and good old fashioned prejudice. Eighty-six percent of young people who claim they have been sexually abused by a female are not believed (Reference).

Women who sexually-abuse children are better able to disguise it as care-giving (Reference).

This combination of the naive Victorian belief that "women just don't do things like that", combined with women's ability to cover their tracks, and a relentless and virulent campaign of feminist propaganda against males, means that female paedophiles literally pass unnoticed.

In the Guardian report of the proposed new law, there is still no mention of the fact that, excluding sexual abuse, most of the child abuse (Reference) and child murder (Reference) is committed by women.

Still no mention of false accusations. Still no sign of a False Accusers' Register. Still no sign of a Warren's Law to tell us if a known malicious false accuser is living in the neighbourhood. Still no removal of the right to anonymity for false accusers.

We still have a mountain to climb.

The Wonders of Technology

Have you watched this video yet? It's powerful stuff, but not always pretty. It's an attempt to expose and examine violence committed by females, against each other, and against men and children, and about society's refusal to recognise or condemn it. My one criticism is that it lapses into sentimentality in parts, but, nevertheless, we need more like it.

Here are a couple more videos I came across.

In this one, we see hidden CCTV camera footage of a woman abusing her children.

In this one, a New Zealand doctor discusses male depression and suicide following family breakdown.

Technology is the men's movement's best weapon. The mainstream media refuses to report our ideas, and the internet has been our most successful tool in getting around the Lace Curtain of feminist censorship. We need to do more to capitalise on the potential of technology.

Back in the Sixties and Seventies, feminists started their own publishing houses to get their ideas into print. We need to do the same, but luckily for us, it is much easier in a 21st Century context. Technology is men's natural habitat; tech savvy women are pretty thin on the ground. Let's play to our strengths.

The men's movement is largely internet based. It has done a lot with blogs, and chat forums, and conventional websites. It's time to take it to the next level. We need more amateur film-makers producing videos like the ones above. Most guys can now get access to a digital video camera, and video editing software is easy to come by. Make a movie and post it on YouTube, then distribute the link through the online men's community, and email good links to your friends, or even to the mainstream media. This is a valuable way of getting our arguments to a wider audience. It's called viral marketing.

The guys from Bull(shit) Busters, who made the first video listed above, taped footage from the TV, incorporated it into their film, and just added some simple titles. The doctor just stood in front of a camera and gave a lecture. It's that easy. Videos like these are the early pioneers. Let's create our own Hollywood.

Let's not forget audio files, multimedia presentations like PowerPoint, and Macromedia Flash. The works we produce can be easily emailed. How often do you get email jokes around your office? It can all be done with the skills a lot of us already have.

It's not just about putting our case forward. Technology has other practical benefits too. This is another useful site, Don't Make Her, explaining how to use technology to protect yourself from false allegations, mainly by covert electronic surveillance.
