Take Action 2006


Menstuff® has long advocated various actions to get advertisers to desist from advertising that maligns or shames men, writing congress or local state legislatures on bills that are good or bad for men, and challenging the news media to present more positive stories about men, fathers (at least on Father's Day), etc. Take Action features a major action that we feel is important for men to take towards making this a country that also cares about men. We will give you the situation, the call to action, and the people to contact to hopefully make something happen.

After reviewing some of these topics, we encourage you to write the corporations and the government and give them your viewpoint. Change doesn't usually take place when only one complaint is received. If you want to be part of the solution, let them hear from you! Here's how. See Take Action from 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, and 2001. See Action of the Week Responses.

ACTION OF THE WEEK

MSN PROMOTES FALSE CIRCUMCISION STORY!

msn.com starting promoting a story the week of 11/27/06 promoting circumcision thought the authors of the study pulled the study on 11/21/07. Tell msn.com to "cut it out."

LOOKING FOR PARTICIPANTS!

We've often wondered if infant circumcision (suspected to have lasting psychological effects) could be measured in adults using standard PTSD and Alexithymia (inability to express feelings into words) tests. If so, then this might indicate a source for unexplained behavior in men (often attribu ted to testosterone). Please take this survey! Also, a second survey: Retired? Thinking about retiring? Know someone who has retirement concerns?

DODGE GLORIFIES WOMEN HEADBUTTING MEN

In a series of five commercials outside the US, Dodge apparently is trying to show the toughest of a truck they never show by having women head-butt men off the screen.

QANTAS TAGS ALL MEN AS POTENTIAL MOLESTERS

The New Zealand Herald, reported about an incident in which a 37-year-old man was asked by a Qantas stewardess to change his seats with a woman based on Qantas's policy of not allowing men to be seated next to unaccompanied young children. We received a response from Diane M. Fineo, Customer Relations Manager, The Americas on 12/21/05. (Note: In checking rates from San Francisco to Sydney, United was cheaper and the only airline that had a non-stop flight.) See comments from the U.S. government on the issue.
