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

    The other gender divide: where men are losing out | guardian.co.uk

    The feminist movement is working to tackle misogyny and its many harmful consequences, but should it address misandry, the male equivalent, too? Photograph: Tim Wimborne/Reuters

    It's difficult to deny that women suffer more than men as a result of their gender, and highlighting the myriad ways in which this happens is one of the cornerstones of modern feminism – which is currently enjoying a revival in the UK and elsewhere.

    But justice isn't a relative concept. If it were, we could suggest we should care less about racism against black people just because Asian people in this country are more likely to be victims of racially-motivated hate crime.

    Obviously that's nonsense. But so might be ignoring issues that affect men more severely than women just because women, overall, have it worse.

    Delving into the data reveals a surprising array of areas in which men might have the hardest time. Here's six worth thinking about:

    Health tips for Fly In Fly Out (FIFO) workers

    Assoc. Prof. Gary Misan, Ms Chloe Oesterbroek, Centre for Rural Health and Community Development, UniSA

    There is no doubt that long swings, twelve hour shifts, long hours sitting in front of computer terminals or driving machinery, as much as you can eat and drink laid out free all day every day in the mess halls, disturbed sleep patterns from shift work and feeling too tired or that there is no time to exercise make it difficult for FIFO workers to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, there are some things you can do to lessen the load and stay fit and healthy (Scott 2000).
