Your Relationship with Your Mother: A SURVEY FOR MEN (for Maggie Dent)

Maggie Dent has started writing her next book – Mothering Sons. As part of her informal research for the book, she is very keen to hear from men 18+ about their relationships with their mothers.

The online survey will only take a few minutes and includes just three questions. Maggie would love to hear from all the blokes out there (and to all the women out there, she’d be very grateful if you’d please share this with the men in your life).

Every man who completes the survey will receive an electronic copy of her book, Black Duck Wisdom.

Booking open NOW for screenings of the Red Pill in Sydney, Maroochydore and Adelaide Hills. Perth and Melbourne to follow.

An impassioned plea from Bettina Arndt...

Ok, all you people who care about what is happening to men and boys in this country.

I’m spending many hours trying to organise screenings of The Red Pill – partly as a free speech issue and more importantly because I think the movie does an excellent job showing how rarely we properly address the problems in men’s lives. [It also covers the issue of male victims of family violence really well - ed.]

I URGENTLY NEED YOU TO HELP ME GET PEOPLE TO BUY TICKETS! IF NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE BOOK, THE SCREENINGS WON'T GO AHEAD.

We have two Sydney bookings now on the Fan-Force sites. Please tell everyone you know who lives in Sydney to book in.

WEDNESDAY 26TH APRIL, 6:30 PM DENDY CINEMAS NEWTOWN

https://fan-force.com/screenings/the-red-pill-dendy-newtown-nsw/

We have managed to get Palace cinemas to back down and agree to show the movie.

Please books tickets and get your friends to do likewise. PLEASE DO SO URGENTLY, AS SOON AS YOU CAN!!!

We also have another screening booked in:

Wednesday the 10th of May at 6:30pm at Hoyts Cinemas Broadway, NSW. 

https://fan-force.com/screenings/the-red-pill-hoyts-broadway-nsw/ 

This is a bigger cinema and we need to sell 74 more tickets by April 27 for this one to happen.

Note we also have screenings booked in for on Fan-Force for Maroochydore Qld and Adelaide Hills SA – and really need booking to come in quickly for those.

See here… https://fan-force.com/screenings/theredpill-event-cinemas-maroochydore-qld/ 

And also here…. https://fan-force.com/screenings/the-red-pill-wallis-cinemas-piccadilly-sa/ 

If you have friends who live in these areas please alert them to these screenings and get them to book in fast!

Note - people need to book in using a credit card but will only be charged if the screenings go ahead.

In the next few days we will have screenings planned for other places like Perth and Melbourne. I will put links to all new venues on my website.

(Note – do have a look of my new website, which finally has all my men’s issues material prominently displayed – courtesy of the wonderful Scott Korman. He’s a great bloke who knows all about websites, IT, videos, podcasts etc. He happened to contact me to make a comment about the Red Pill and ended up spending a whole week helping with the website and is now working with me to help pull together the Fan-Force screenings.)

I am about to embark on a media blitz getting everyone I can think of to try to help me get the word out in the traditional media but you have to help with social media because that is not my thing.

Cheers, Tina

A Single Father's Story of Alienation

Up until March 27th 2011, I shared a wonderful strong and happy bond with my then 7 year old boy, since the day he was born.

I was never married to his mother, I am 9 years younger than her and our relationship ended prior to her pregnancy.

Without moving into too much detail, the mother and I had a telephone dispute over horseplay games my son and I played. In particular, our routine little wrestling games on the bed each morning and night.

On March after drop off she called me to say there were bite marks on my son's arm. She was yelling, I was a little confused, but narrowed it down to perhaps part of our game where he and I would see how long we could hold. I tried to calm her down, instead she said she was taking photos and said that 'this was abuse'.

This became a screaming match as I would never, ever do anything to harm my son. The last time I saw him, he was singing in the car and said, "I love you Dad".

Even that night in question, "He did not complain to his mother of anything". But, the worst when she began yelling on the phone in his presence and from there on, she was about to emotionally and psychologically abuse my son forever...

Your help needed: crowdfunding to save lives

A suicide can leave an empty space that hurts a family for generations, in addition to the tragedy of the life lost. But there are actions we can take to reduce suicide and you can help put them into action.

The Australian Men’s Health Forum is preparing an advisory paper on preventing male suicide (four out of five suicides are by males). The advisory paper will be a practical, hands-on help to friends, family and work colleagues who think someone may be at risk.

AMHF needs to raise $8,000 for the preparation and distribution of the paper and will run a crowd funding campaign on Pozible.com launching June 13th, 2016, which is the start of Men’s Health Week.

Will you help by:

· Forwarding this web page (or a summary of it) to all your members and supporters,

· Asking them to forward it to all their friends and

· Making a small donation to the campaign?

You can find out more at the campaign’s Facebook page, Facebook.com/amhf.crowd

You can also check out the crowdfunding page at pozible.com/project/suicide-prevention.

For more information you can contact Gary Bryant, Executive Office, Australian Men’s Health Forum on 0414 950 902 or admin@amhf.org.au.
