Local groups on federal "hate list"

Kamloops This Week, Kamloops B.C., June 6, 2003

Mickey MacMillan shakes his head in disbelief.

His name and the organization he founded in Kamloops — Parents of Broken Families — is on what he calls a “hit list” of men's groups, groups which are accused of promoting hatred against women.

MacMillan' s name is not the only one on the list attached to the end of a federally-funded report which claims “masculinists” (or male activists in men' s groups) are organizing a campaign against feminism and blaming women for oppressing and discriminating men.

There are five from B.C., including another Kamloops resident, Todd Eckert, president of the Parents Coalition of B.C.

MP Betty Hinton calls it a “hate watch list” and raised the issue in Parliament Thursday during question period.

“Why did the minister spend $75,000 on a project which is a poorly disguised attack on men and families?”

She argued the report, School Success by Gender: A Catalyst for the Masculinist Discourse, is filled with hate and inflammatory language which does nothing to raise the status of women but everything to denigrate men, families and parent organizations.

Hinton has attended two Parents of Broken Families meetings and insists they're not anti-women.

“These are fathers and mothers and children and grandchildren who are being denied access to their parents, their kids, their grandparents.”

The report recommends the establishment of a Hate Watch group to monitor men' s groups on the Internet, adding the incitement of hatred on the basis of gender as a hate crime, and the organization of women' s groups to counter the masculinists' views.

MacMillan says he hasn' t committed a crime and doesn' t like his name being smeared on a government-funded report.

“They' re doing this to me just because I want a fair shake for fathers and children.”

That fair shake, he says, is in equal access or shared parenting in child custody cases.

MP Hinton, meanwhile, has written a letter to the secretary of state for the Status of Women urging the names of the two Kamloops-based organizations be dropped from the list contained in the federally funded report.

DNA test confirms fraud, annulment granted: judge

The Visayan Daily Star, Bacolod City, Philippines, BY CARLA GOMEZ, February 28, 2009

Bacolod Regional Trial Court Judge Ray Alan Drilon has annulled the marriage of a Negrense couple after a DNA test showed that the child borne by the wife was not the biological offspring of the husband who works abroad.

The family court judge ruled that the marriage of the couple, whose names are being withheld by the DAILY STAR on the request of the court, was null and void.

Due to fraud committed by the wife in getting her overseas worker husband to marry her, properties acquired during their marriage are awarded in favor of the husband, the judge said in his decision, a copy of which was furnished the DAILY STAR yesterday.

The judge also declared that since the overseas worker is not the biological, much less the legitimate father of the child of the woman, the Civil Registrar is ordered to change the surname of the child to the mother's maiden name and remove the name of the plaintiff as father of the child.

The complainant said he was working as an electronics engineer in the United Arab Emirates and on his return to the Philippines in 2001, his girlfriend of 10 years with whom he had sex, showed him a pregnancy test result showing that she was pregnant.

On receiving the news he was overjoyed and offered to marry her. Shortly after he went to Saudi Arabia to work, and his wife gave birth to a baby girl in the same year.

The birth of the child only five months after their marriage puzzled him but his wife told him that the baby was born prematurely, so he believed her, the husband said. Read More ..

Adulterous woman ordered to pay husband £177,000 in 'moral damages'

The Daily Mail, UK
18th February 2009

An adulterous Spanish woman who conceived three children with her lover has been ordered to pay £177,000 in 'moral damages' to her husband.

The cuckolded man had believed that the three children were his until a DNA test eventually proved they were fathered by another man.

The husband, who along with the other man cannot be named for legal reasons to protect the children's identities, suspected his second wife may have been unfaithful in 2001.

Infidelity 'is natural'

BBC, U.K., September 25, 1998

Females 'stray to gather the best possible genes for their offspring'

Infidelity may be natural according to studies that show nine out of 10 mammals and birds that mate for life are unfaithful.

Experts found animals that fool around are only following the urges of biology.

New studies using genetic testing techniques show that even the most apparently devoted of partners often go in search of the sexual company of strangers.

Females stray to gather the best possible genes for their offspring, while males are driven to father as many and as often as possible.

"True monogamy actually is rare," said Stephen T Emlen, an expert on evolutionary behaviour at Cornell University.
