(Open Letter to the Minister of Justice)
Dear Mr. Little,
On its face, the recent Ministerial
Review of the Human Rights Commission seems to be an excellent
document, judged in relation to its terms of reference, including
in relation to Terms of Reference Three (The Organisational Culture
of the Human Rights Commission). However, there is no indication that
the Review has identified the causes
of the dysfunctional culture which it found to exist at the highest
level of the Human Rights Commission.
I am not sure whether Judge Coral Shaw has any knowledge of Human
Rights, but the average legal practitioners certainly seems to have
very little knowledge of Human Rights. This empty space in their mental
furniture is often taken up with Feminism,
which does not even exist in the New Zealand constitution. Even when
legal people know something about Human Rights, Feminism often takes
pride of place and Human Rights are subordinated to Feminism.
For example, on the webpage Anti-Male Discrimination
in a Human Rights Textbook, I point out that one Human Rights
textbook reads as if only women suffered discrimination on the grounds
of sex (which is a Feminist assumption), while the other textbook
I review is silent on this issue. And on the webpage Chen/Palmer
Doesn't Understand Human Rights!, I point out that a spokesman
for New Zealand's leading Public Law practice ignores men's Human
Rights also. So did the Victoria University of Wellington Law
School, when I was a student there. So does the Law Foundation.
So does the Law Commission. So does the Institute
of Judicial Studies. So does the Labour Party. So does the Green
Party (except for Golriz Ghahraman MP, who has the good fortune to
have come from Iran, like some of my ancestors). So does the National
Party. So does the Act Party. So does the New Zealand First Party.
So does the Conservative Party. So does the New Zealand Parliament,
So I suggest to you that there is bound to
be dysfunction in the Human Rights Commission, so long as it
is divided into those who believe in Feminism and those who believe
in Human Rights. I consider that you know this and that you intend
to solve this problem by banning anyone who believes in Human Rights
from being a Human Rights Commissioner! You want it to be ruled by
Feminists -- just as the Labour Party is!!
I suggest that you introduce a Bill into Parliament
banning Feminism, on the grounds that it is an
anti-male hate crime. Any instance of Feminist activity that claimed
that it was not carrying out an anti-male hate crime would have to
give evidence of all the research it had conducted into men's issues,
needs, problems and interests, so as to show that "Feminism"
(as practised by the people involved) actually did have something
to do with equality or equity between
men and women. It is very easy for Feminists to say that they are
for "equality" or "equity" -- now you can give
them a chance to prove it!
Men have no rights,
but aren't less human.
We blame sexism.
