Men to discuss men’s rights in Norway

Norway : Minister of Children and Equality Karita Bekkemellem announced the 32 members of the so-called Men’s panel Monday. The panel, consisting of men from various backgrounds and professions, aims to spark a public debate on men’s rights in Norway, in areas such as health, education and divorce.

….The 32 men in the sport’s pub are members of the newly established Men’s panel, set up by Bekkemellem to introduce a public debate on men’s rights. Men are falling behind in the education system, rarely get custody over children after divorce, and face other health risks than women, the minister argued.

The Men’s panel will discuss these issues and more, and will advise the Government on the drafting of a forthcoming white paper on men and equality, due next summer….(Full Story)


Concerns by F4L: The article states nothing about how long Norway’s Karita Bekkemellem has been in office, but such information is important and available.

Karita Bekkemellem was previously the minister of children and family affairs in Jens Stoltenberg’s short-lived 2000-2001 cabinet, and also Norwegian minister of Children and Equality Affairs in the second cabinet Stoltenberg from 2005–2007. She is in her fifth period of representing the county of Møre og Romsdal. In the period from 2001 to 2005 she served as faction leader in the committee for church, education and research affairs.

At least some of the discriminatory circumstances of men’s rights under which men in Norway suffer came about during her tenure.

UN COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN 27 FEBRUARY-10 MARCH 2005
UN- CSW; New York 27. February — 10. March 2005
Ministry of Children and Equality, Norway
DRAFT 27.02.2006
STATEMENT OF NORWAY
KARITA BEKKEMELLEM, Minister of Children and Equality
Madam Chair, fellow delegates,
CEDAW is one of the most important tools for improving gender equality. I am proud to announce that within the next three years we will seek to incorporate CEDAW in our Human Rights Act instead of in the Gender Equality Act in which it is incorportated today. This will further strengthen women’s human rights in Norway….

What feminists claim to fights for vs. what femimists really want

CEDAW is not one of the most important tools for improving gender equality. It serves entirely different objectives.

To clear up Karita Bekkemellem’s role in the steady deterioration of men’s rights, have a look at these results of a google.com search for <“Karita Bekkemellem” “Status of Women”> (excluding the chevrons).

How were the members of Norway’s Men’s panel chosen? Let there be no mistake, there are more male than female feminists, especially in Norway, a country that was for decades at the forefront of the UN’s war against men, fathers and families. Norway is one of the driving forces of that war. When the Men’s panel makes its recommendations to the government, will it not report to the Minister of Children and Equality Karita Bekkemellem?

What assurances does Norway’s Men’s panel have that it will not labour under the condition of reasonable apprehension of anti-male bias by a feminist-dominated and -controlled government?

Is there anyone who can clear up those and related concerns?

    says:

    I’m afraid this process of trying to achieve equality status for women has demonstrated that they simply are not equal to men.

    That’s the only reason I can now suppose that our forefathers had for thousands of years barred women from religion and politics.

    And, I suppose, barred women from armed combat in service of king and empire. I don’t think they’re actually barred from NFL pro football, but I don’t imagine any could make the cut of even the worst team.

    Where did I see that all the women’s Olympic gold medal records all fall short of American High School Boys’ national records in all comparable categories? Sad, but true.

    And let’s not talk about science and engineering. No contest there either. Women just can’t compete with men.

    But they do out-yap men. Talk and talk. Talk their way into political jobs. Pre-empt criticism by holding out sexist discrimination charges, and demanding laws be bent into a shape suitable to their service.

    Karita Bekkemellem seems to be doing little more than that by creating a “board” to look at solutions for the inequity she has created.

    Little history does she seem to realize, either. I’ve looked over 5,000 years of it as well as I am able, and repeatedly, men have fought even unto death for their equality. No “board” meetings nor reports required.

    I’m sure everything she’s doing will seem right and fair to her, right up to the point it eats her alive. All I can say is hasten the day, and don’t TALK about it! -dwm-
