She now makes an appeal for funding and volunteers to this important organization, with the blessing and support of AVFM editorial staff.
Is a man’s penis the determining factor as to his worth in society as a human being? One mother seemed to think so and took it upon herself to determine her son’s future for him.
Activism is far from being an easy job and stress is often too common for those of us who fight for a cause. When does daily stress become more than just something you can shrug off? Kristina’s got some advice that we all should read.
Yet another conservative has stepped forward to tell men to get married and thereby “grow up” and “man up.” Mark Trueblood wants them to explain why men should risk that in the current legal climate.
It appears that medical services are not making as much money on vasectomies as they used to. Demand is down, and of course it is men’s fault. Peter Lloyd calls bullshit on it.
In observance of International Men’s Day, we bring you some very sobering observations on the state of men and boys from the pages of Men’s Health Australia.
Aimee McGee takes a look at the British Public Health system and speculates as to whether men are getting the short end of the stethoscope. But it looks like it may take new laws to even find out.

MRAs are pissed because we are supposed to be. You don’t need to convince any MRAs why this is true. They know it. But what do we do when that anger, a friend of activism, becomes the enemy of the man? Food for thought from Paul Elam.
What does an MRA do when a men’s issue like circumcision finds its way into in a gay pride parade? Well, march, for fuck’s sake! What else would you expect to happen? JtO is queen for a day in Vancouver, BC, supporting our gay brothers in this important cause.
Safety in the workplace is a very important issue. Dead and injured workers don’t produce, not for the company and not for their families, so keeping them healthy and productive is essential. But what, in human terms, is their real worth?
A week ago a man made a post to the forums of Men’s Health Magazine, expressing suicidal feelings. Men’s Health Magazine responded with exactly nothing, save their readers turning the crises into a lecture on condoms and child support. If we don’t help, no one will.
Greg Canning made an inquiry to the Australian Human Rights Commission about getting a page up on their website regarding International Men’s Day. As usual, the equality dried up when it was a man asking for it. But Dr. Canning has a message for them.
Germany has recently outlawed the practice of circumcision, more accurately known as male genital mutilation. It is a decision that cuts sharply across religious lines, creating hostilities. Dan Moore wants to know why.
Paul Elam reveals his personal journey from bad to improving health, and the factors that led him there. This one is not for the squeamish or feint of heart. Set that plate of pasta aside before reading.
