Prominent subjects covered by Human Rights And Wrongs.

German journalist Gunnar Schupelius has organised a ‘March for Life’ parade every year for some years now. As a journalist he occasionally writes about the need for nations to be at peace, and for dialog over violence at all times. So it is perhaps not too surprising that he has been targeted by feminists for Read more…

One of the categories of crime within the VAWG umbrella is Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking. You may think that this mostly involves women and girls being exploited as prostitutes. Well a lot of it does – but most does not.

There used to be twice as many [care] sessions delivered to girls: now there are nearly four times as many. In view of boys outnumbering girls in the care and protection plan data, this is odd.

‘Submitting to my husband like it’s 1959′: Why I became a #TradWife For most of human history, men and women worked for their own benefit, for that of their children and undoubtedly to the benefit of the society they lived in. With the industrial revolution came there was a move to long hard labour in Read more…

European Court of Justice rules that Spain is unjust towards men Women-only pension supplement breached EU equal treatment rules Spanish social security has a rule that people who have a permanent incapacity while caring for children are eligible for a 5% supplementary payment. By ‘people’ they mean women. Only women. A man known only as WA, Read more…

7 Years of Abuse and I Had No Idea I Was in an Abusive Relationship I knew I had a difficult marriage, but it wasn’t until 2006, when a neighbour witnessed me being attacked and suggested to me that I was the victim of domestic abuse, that the penny started to drop. That neighbour was the Read more…

A Canadian House of Commons committee has expressed concern over the “under-representation” of women in politics. They conclude that “only” having over a third of women involved indicates sexism and bias. The committee suggests political parties should be working harder to get more women to run by eliminating sexism and biases that might be built Read more…

How male teachers can help to challenge gender roles in nursery school education Recent figures show that there is still a large gender gap in recruitment to the teaching profession – only 38% of secondary school teachers are male, and 26% in primaries. In preschools – or nursery – it’s even worse. According to OECD data, the highest Read more…

Why does any country tolerate multiple, easily avoidable, deaths? Why does any country not deal harshly with parents who put their children in harm’s way? Why are parents allowed to deliberately harm their children? The deaths in South Africa are not just the occasional mishap. 20 one month, 30 the next, often more. Regrettably, it’s Read more…

Before taking his customary Christmas Break, Arne Hoffman gives a roundup of how he saw 2019 from Germany, including highlights of world events.

Under Egyptian Personal Status law, although the father is considered to be the guardian of his children, the mother has the right to custody of both male and female children until they reach fifteen years of age. This is applied even if the mother is foreign and intends to take the children out of the country.

The mother kept demanding more, however.

At one time, she made a video of her beating the child. In a short clip, the boy’s skinny body appears, his tears overflowing as he was severely beaten by a woman asking him in a loud voice to call his father, “Say, come, take me .. the spirit of living with him threw you like a dog.” It seems the threat was to pay more, or to see his son beaten.

State feminism has been an integral part of the China’s ideology ever since the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. The Communist Party has brought tremendous advancement concerning the involvement of Chinese women in all spheres of life. They invented International Women’s Day, which is now celebrated in most countries around the Read more…

Nur acht Prozent der Deutschen ordnen sich dem feministischen Lager zu. Diese acht Prozent sind aber so gut verankert in Leitmedien, Politik und dem akademischen Sektor, dass sie die Geschlechterdebatte beherrschen – mit allen Nachteilen, die eine solche Alleinherrschaft mit sich bringt: So werden feministische Behauptungen nicht hinterfragt, sondern einer schreibt sie unkritisch vom anderen ab. Stellt jemand diese Behauptungen ausnahmsweise doch in Frage, wird er als “antifeministisch” und damit “rechts” abgeurteilt.

Das “Lexikon der feministischen Irrtümer” durchbricht dieses Raster.

I’m now going to explain why women having the same retirement age as men is NOT equality. My proof for this is based on the United Kingdom but I believe much the same result would come from looking at any country’s data, other than Mexico.

Of course, the UK could start to fund men’s health programs in the way it does women’s. That would increase the average longevity for men and be a far better solution. In the meantime, let’s not pretend that women have been made to be equal to men in state retirement benefits: there’s still a gender pension gap.

What is RSS? Briefly, it is a quick and easy way to keep updated about what is going on at websites you are interested in. It is used by over a million websites. RSS (it stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’ but that probably doesn’t tell you much) has been around a long time, with roots Read more…

One of the problems is that no country wants to be first. Whichever country first makes cutting up a little lad’s genitals illegal in clear and unambiguous terms is going to come under fire, even if all it is doing is bringing in laws that make the situation with little girls equal, or as equal as the differences can make it.

Already, courts around the world are having to go into the most obvious contradictions in order to judge violating boys different than for girls as a crime. This means that even the protection of girls is threatened as courts must decide whether to give boys equal protection to girls, or give parents the same rights over their daughters as for their sons.
