(Open Letter to the Minister of Science and Innovation)

 

Dear Mr. Joyce,

I am writing to you in your capacity as (I think) the highest ranking Minister who has had the benefit of a scientific education. The topic I am writing about is just one simple (but very important) aspect of a somewhat complex issue. I want to keep it simple, so that no side-issues prevent you from addressing it directly. The reason I am writing to you about it is that I believe this issue requires the attention of a scientific mind, because some other minds have proved themselves inadequate.

“…it is important to remember that family violence is heavily gendered. The predominant pattern is one of male violence directed at a female partner…. the percentage of females who experienced offences by their partner was not much higher than for males, but females:

• ….
• ….
• were more likely to report fear and other emotional impacts as a result of the violence.”

In other words, this webpage is claiming that there are three reasons (given in the three bullet points) for saying that the predominant pattern is one of male violence directed at a female partner, despite the fact that the percentage of females who experienced offences by their partner was not much higher than for males.

For present purposes, I am ignoring the first two reasons (which I will return to at a later date), and focusing on the third reason. Logically, does the fact that women are more likely than men to report fear and other emotional impacts as a result of the violence constitute a reason to conclude that the predominant pattern is one of male violence directed at a female partner?

Surely, if women tend to be more fearful and more emotional than men, then that is women’s problem, and does not constitute a reason to conclude that the predominant pattern of family violence is one of male violence directed at a female partner! This reasoning indicates gross intellectual incompetence and gross anti-male sexism on the part of the Ministry of Social Development, irrespective of whether or not the other two bullet points mentioned valid and relevant points, which is a separate issue.

The article Hall, Geoffrey B. C.; Witelson, Sandra F.; Szechtman, Henry; Nahmias, Claude, Sex differences in functional activation patterns revealed by increased emotion processing demands. Neuroreport: 9 February 2004 - Volume 15 - Issue 2 - pp 219-223 concludes as follows:

“men tend to modulate their reaction to stimuli, and engage in analysis and association, whereas women tend to draw more on primary emotional reference.”

As another example, I could mention that I saw a party of schoolchildren on the television news (in 2014, I think), who had been walking near one of the North Island volcanoes, when it happened to erupt suddenly. You could hear girls screaming, but no noise from the boys, as the party fled from the volcano.

As a further example, I could mention the case of three National Party MPs bungy-jumping at the time of the National Party conference earlier this year, as shown on television. The Minister of Local Government, the Hon Paula Bennett, was sitting on the bungy-jumping chair, flanked by two male MPs. Paula Bennett was heard emitting a loud and prolonged scream, while her male companions were silent and relatively composed.

New Zealand law and policy, in effect, punishes men for women’s frailties, creating and acting on the basis of anti-male stereotypes – partly because women are more afraid of violence than men are, and partly because the media and universities are viciously anti-male, and never allow pro-men activists, such as myself, to counter the anti-male stances of the man-haters.

How is it that the taxpayer funds this sort of gross intellectual incompetence and gross anti-male sexism in the Ministry of Social Development? I have seen this webpage cited as an authority by another Government agency, so obviously other people do not realize – as I do – that the Ministry of Social Development is composed largely of a bunch of vicious, incompetent, man-hating moos!

 

This is the reply which I received:

 

 

The above reply does not contain any information about whether my letter had had any effect, but I have reason to think that it did have an effect.
