I am a Men's Rights activist with a Law degree
(including a paper on Family
Law) and an incomplete Graduate Diploma in Arts (Psychology).
I have reason to believe that the Fathers' Movement is generally
dissatisfied with the standard of objectivity displayed by Psychologists in
the context of their work for the Family Court. There is a suggestion that
this can be remedied by amending aspects of the complaints procedure, but
reading of the Practice Note reveals no obvious defects in that procedure.
My experience of the Victoria University of Wellington Law School (albeit
under the previous Dean, with whom I had a public dispute), and of Massey
University's Psychology Department is such that my view is that bias enters
into the minds of future judges, lawyers and specialist report writers at
university - if not earlier - so that the bias is systemic, and that no
amount of tinkering with the complaints procedure can eliminate this bias
any significant extent.
It can not be a coincidence that the people who are dissatisfied with court
psychologists are men, and both Law Schools and Psychology Departments teach
Feminist propaganda ("Feminist Jurisprudence" and "Psychology
respectively) to their students. I use the plural terms "Law Schools"
"Psychology Departments", because I assume that other Law Schools
Psychology Departments resemble the ones I attended in the relevant respect.
Moreover, Massey University is a totalitarian leftist environment with a
intellectual level amongst staff generally (let alone students). One female
staff member removed my access to the course's online discussion facility
because I posted a link to an article I had written
which criticised the
textbook's Feminist propaganda. One other female staff member refused me
permission to do research on students' attitudes to domestic violence on the
grounds that the ethics committee would turn the application down. Their
"Understanding Critical Social Psychology" is full of simplistic
Feminism and Leftism.
I saw the name "Kahu" on their website at one stage, and Kahu
was the name of
the female Head of Maori Mental Health at Hutt Hospital who was fired after
she called the Police to my house after I had had an argument with the
Psychiatrist of someone I was interpreting for about Feminist propaganda (a
Womens Refuge poster) which had been in the waiting room at a Community
Mental Health building. I am sure that people like Kahu pick up their
primitive, sexist, Feminist beliefs in part from departments such as
I will not go into further detail, but invite you to go to my website,
can find a lot of information about the Victoria University of Wellington
School, Domestic Violence, alternatives to Feminist dogma, and so on.
The Law does not pretend to be perfect. It does the best that it can in
circumstances. The Law deems certain people to be experts. Those people
(e.g. Psychologists), if they are honest, admit to themselves that there is
a lot that their field does not know. However, they have to earn a living,
and courts have to make decisions as best they can.
That is a bad enough situation, from the point of view of the people whose
lives are deeply
affected by court decisions. What makes it worse is that academics consider
themselves at liberty to impose their world view onto the students who later
are deemed to be Family Court "experts," as well as onto the students
later become lawyers and judges.
The ideal solution would be for the New Zealand Psychologists
refuse to allow graduates of university departments which taught one-sided
political beliefs (e.g. Feminism) from practising as Family Court specialist
report writers. Nothing else would suffice to remove the bias which is
