Data Retension.

I'm going to republish an email asking for help on keeping data on a personal level.
I hope this helps:
I would really like to advise you on this subject, but really, it comes down to your own choice. Allow me to elaborate:

1) Tape:
Simply put, tape degrades over time, it sucks, most corps.: Use it [but only because they backup regularly, and test the backup: or so I hope… if it is a well run corp.], but, it sucks… it’s linear, it degrades, I wouldn’t do it.
2) DVD/CDR:
This medium, requires storage in a cool, dark place. Even if you follow guide lines, there are no guarantees. Why? Because the physical media is the final element that either works or it doesn’t. Some folks will tell ya that it will last 100 years, though, some studies show that it doesn’t last 5 years, regardless of what you do with the disc. [as in, take care of it]. Which means, you have to keep multiple digital copies of vital data. This I recommend, across the board: Tape, DVD/CDR, MEM stick, HDD, Online.
3) Memory stick:
Some hope here, but not really. Most mem sticks are RAM devices, which means that they will hold data. No-one has done studies on this media as to data-retention. So in the end, nobody really knows.
4) HDD:
This is the best, I feel, but, you are subjected to the fact that this is a mechanical device. That being said, it is subject to failure rates of Mech. Devices. It could last 30 years, or 1, all it takes is for one thing to fail and you are screwed.
5) Online:
Perhaps the best. Why? Because it forces someone else to think about the problem of data-retention. You may lose data, but if the company (be it Google, MS, Yahoo etc) is in theory, responsible for the data. Which means that they will employ some level of RAID to assure the maximum of data retention. But then again, how much do you trust these companies? I don’t.

I hope I have helped. Even though I haven’t. In the end, employ as many things as you can. This is the only way to ensure data-retention.

Hi All,

Just a repost here, cause, shit, some things you just can't keep bottled up!:
Firstly, this was found on Chris J's blog:

A worthwhile visit.

Nuff said:

22 January 2009

I just came across a blog, that was so well written, that I was moved to repost it here.
The original can be found here: http://onemanskingdom.blogspot.com/2009/01/imagine.html

Imagine

Imagine for a few minutes a world that is ordered in a slightly different way.

Imagine that, as a man, when you go up town, 4 out of every 5 shops caters to your tastes: there are outdoor pursuits shops, electronic hobby specialists, motorcycle shops, robot and computer kitset specialists, sports gear specialists staffed with former sports stars, telescope and other astronomical instruments, real ale pubs, boating and fishing stores, hunting guides, mountain climbing equipment, self-defence training with experts - shops of this nature on every block. Of course it only follows that you also have plenty of money to spend in these shops, otherwise they wouldn't be there. There are a few stores for women, but they cater mainly for basic things like clothes, footwear and household appliances. Enough to dress them and keep them busy should they have any spare time on their hands.

Imagine also that should you tire of working for a living, you can unilaterally decide to quit your job and live off your wife. Everyone accepts that as fair. You don't have to do anything - you can even have an affair with another woman (or man if you are that way inclined). Should your wife become difficult and object to your freedom, you can divorce her at the drop of a hat, and she will be removed from your house and ordered to have no contact with your children except at times ordered by a court. Oh yes, you will get the kids, as well as an income from this troublesome woman. The courts may well order her to pay more to you than what she actually earns (she will have no legal redress either). If she fails to pay you, she will be jailed. If she threatens you in any way, the police will be onto her so fast she won't know what hit her, and she will be ordered to attend classes to confess to anger management problems, and to maintain a distance between you and her, under pain of imprisonment. If you fear she may strike you unawares, you can even kill her and this will likely be considered a mitigating circumstance in your trial.

In this imaginary world, you can buy anything you want and should your wife try to limit your access to what she earns, you can have her charged for spousal abuse. Should your easy spending bankrupt the household, it will be her that is saddled with the debt, not you.

When you turn on the television set, everything you watch will tell you what a splendid fellow you are and reassure you that you were born superior. Women will be depicted as idiots in all the commercials and men will be quiet, but assertive, role models of higher judgement and taste. All the dramas will show women doing all kinds of unspeakable evil to you, but they will always get caught and meet either a grisly or humiliating end. In any conflict where there is large-scale killing, all the bodies will be female. Women everywhere will rush to your defence, because it pains them to see a man in any kind of distress. In those countries that practice capital punishment, women are routinely executed. In the Arab world you can wander down to watch the public executions and see several women all hanged at the same time. The images are broadcast throughout the country to dissuade women from their criminal tendencies.

You can avail yourself of scholarships that only men are entitled to receive, and when you go to university, most of the students there will be men like yourself. Your point of view carries much more weight simply because you are a man, and should you want men-only facilities - a gymnasium for example - you shall get them. You will be constantly told that if the world was run by men only, all its current problems would disappear, and that women are less competent than you are. Of course, your graduation rates will be much higher than women students, and academically boys will routinely outperform girls at all levels of education.

The government will spend twice as much on your health concerns than it does on women, it will always consider the effect on men before passing any legislation, and it will make special provisions for your poverty should you be so unfortunate. Most of the homeless will be women. The jails will be full of women.

You can expect to live longer than women by a margin of 5 years. Women will commit suicide at a rate of 4 to every 1 man. No-one, anywhere will consider either of these statistics of any importance.

Should your country ever be threatened from abroad, the women are conscripted and sent off to fight for 'their' country, while you get to stay home and cheer from your armchair. Many of them will be killed or horribly maimed. This is one of the rare things that women do for you that you will publically honour.

You will receive wealth from a greater number of sources: inheritances, spousal support when married, alimony/child support when divorced and government pensions. In the work-force, where you do the same job as a woman, you will get the same income. However, since you spend so much more of your time doing things other than working, and choosing not to do the dangerous and dirty kind of work that women do, on average, women will out-earn you and hold a higher percentage of that very small number of jobs at the very top that demand every minute of their lives. Jobs for which these women are extremely well-paid, but ultimately you will get their money for it anyhow, in the form of taxes paid for your benefit, inheritances received as husbands due to women's earlier deaths and spousal maintenance/alimony/child support/divorce settlements.

As a man, you would probably be at least a little uncomfortable with such a world.

With the roles reversed, as a woman you would consider this normal life, but be mightily peeved that men enjoyed any advantage at all.

Women bad for other women? Say it ain't so!

I've always believed that the biggest threat to a woman, is another woman. The myth of course, is that we guys are the bad ones. Everyone one of us is a potential rapist, abuser and good for nothing type of person. This myth of course, masks the reality at the end of the day.
The best line from the article below is: "I have heard behind closed doors from women - young and old, up and down the ladder - that we can be our worst enemies at work".
Why? Because this is merely the expression of a female attitude. What attitude?
The very same attitude they display when trying to "steal" their friends bf/husband, say nasty things about their so called "best friend" etc. The attitude of a spoiled little girl that wants what she can't have. It has nothing to do with deserving it, or needing it, or being the most qualified, but has everything to do with what she wants. And let's face it, they have been programed with the notion that they can have their cake and eat it too. It's pure and simple competition - female style (which is to say, low, below the belt, without honour and full of toxic venom).

So read on, and remember, some of what you will read is just whitewashing/wishful thinking, but there are nuggets of truth to be had.


A Sisterhood of Workplace Infighting

Jim Wilson/The New York Times

Published: January 10, 2009

I GREW up the youngest of four girls, and nothing was more important to me than my sisters. Sure, we had our fights, but the idea of not getting along for any extended time was out of the question. Helping one another was paramount, especially after my mother died during our childhood.

Later in life, as I started my career, these lessons from my sisterhood served me well, and I naïvely thought that the same would be true for other women, especially on the heels of the women’s movement.

But to this day, a pink elephant is lurking in the room, and we pretend it’s not there. For years, I have heard behind closed doors from women — young and old, up and down the ladder — that we can be our own worst enemies at work.

Let me stress that throughout my career, I’ve benefited in countless ways from the advice and support of my female colleagues, just as so many others have.

But while women have come a long way in removing workplace barriers, one of the last remaining obstacles is how they treat one another. Instead of helping to build one another’s careers, they sometimes derail them — for example, by limiting access to important meetings and committees; withholding information, assignments and promotions; or blocking the way to mentors and higher-ups.

And if you are a woman and happen to have a female co-worker who is a bully, watch out. A recent study by the Workplace Bullying Institute examining office behaviors — like verbal abuse, job sabotage, misuse of authority and destroying of relationships — found that female bullies aim at other women more than 70 percent of the time. Bullies who are men, by contrast, tend to be equal-opportunity tormentors when it comes to the gender of their target.

Despite all the money spent annually on women’s leadership conferences and professional development programs, you’d be hard-pressed to find a workshop on women mistreating one another at work. Don’t get me wrong: I’m a huge proponent of women’s leadership programs. But teaching career skills is not enough if we ignore one of the most important reasons for holding these events in the first place: learning to value one another so we can all get ahead.

I’ve heard plenty of theories on why women undermine one another at work. Probably the most popular one is the scarcity excuse — the idea that there are too few spots at the top, so women at more senior levels are unwilling to assist female colleagues who could potentially replace them.

Another explanation is what I call the “D.I.Y. Bootstrap Theory,” which goes like this: “If I had to pull myself up by the bootstraps to get ahead with no one to help me, why should I help you? Do it yourself!”

Some people argue that women aren’t intentionally undermining one another; rather, they don’t want to be accused of showing favoritism toward other women.

Others contend that women mistreat one another because of hyperemotionality, leading them to become overly invested in insignificant nuances and causing them to hold grudges. I’ve encountered this phenomenon among women who feel personally assaulted when someone criticizes them or their ideas.

Research shows that, in general, women are the more empathetic sex and are by nature more attuned to their own and others’ feelings. This is a great advantage when dealing with the human complexities of the workplace. But there’s a downside: If women take things too personally when challenged or criticized, they are prone to overreaction. When that happens, there’s trouble.

And, of course, some people assert that while women compete quite ably on the sports field and in the classroom, they haven’t learned how to compete in a healthy way at the office. For example, men often handle their feelings of envy and jealousy with humor and a left-handed compliment: “I’m going to whip your butt on our sales goals this month.” Or, “Who’d you have to pay off for that promotion?” They deal with it, and they move on. Although considered perfectly acceptable for men in most business settings, this kind of banter is not as socially acceptable for women.

Now, I’m not advocating that women emulate men. We tried that route in the ’70s and ’80s during the power-suit era. But when women are chained to stereotypes of being nurturers and cheerleaders, unexpressed and unresolved feelings of jealousy will surface — often in a far more destructive manner that’s reminiscent of mean-girl behavior from middle school.

BUT in the end, determining why women undermine one another’s workplace success isn’t what’s most important. Rather, we need to simply stop our own misbehavior and to call our colleagues on theirs.

Many of us, however, find it hard to even acknowledge mistreatment by another woman. We fear that bringing our experience into the light and talking about it will set us back to that ugly gender stereotype we have fought so hard to overcome: the one about the overemotional, backstabbing, aggressive (and you know what’s coming) bitch.

Yet, expecting women to be universally supportive of one another or to give preferential treatment to anyone with two X chromosomes is an equally unworkable view.

If we really want to clear one of the last remaining hurdles to gender parity and career success, let’s start treating one another not worse or better, but simply as well as we already treat the guys — or better yet, the way we want our nieces, daughters, granddaughters and sisters to be treated.

Why not to live with a woman, that you aren't married to.

I hope she doesn't win, but I suspect she just may.

Woman seeking alimony after common-law marriage

From Tuesday's Globe and Mail

MONTREAL — She is a willowy brunette with supermodel looks. He is a multimillionaire who travels the globe. Their union produced three kids - and their breakup is now poised to test Canadian law.

A Montreal woman turned to a Quebec judge yesterday in a bid to obtain alimony from her wealthy ex. She says she was the man's companion, travel partner, and mother to their children: The only thing she wasn't was his wife.

Now the woman is challenging federal law and seeking $50-million of her ex's fortune, saying she was unfairly penalized because she never tied the knot.

That's why he didn't want to marry you. He knew you were merely after his money. You are not a victim, you are just plain stupid.

"I never thought I would have to go before a judge to ask for my money or my rights," the woman, who is in her 30s, told reporters outside the courtroom. "I want to be recognized as his wife. I always considered myself to be his wife. Everybody treated me as his wife."

The couple's identities are protected under Quebec law.

The outcome is being closely followed in Quebec because the province is champion of common-law marriage in Canada. After the collapse of the Catholic Church's influence in Quebec, many couples opted to live together without saying their vows: 34 per cent of all couples in Quebec live together, compared with 18 per cent on average across Canada.

The impact for children is even greater, since 60 per cent of children in Quebec are born to unwed parents.

While the repercussions of the court ruling could be wide-ranging, the test case happens to be set against an uncommon backdrop of wealth and luxury.

The woman described in Superior Court how she met her future partner on a beach in her native South America. She was a 17-year-old high-school student; he was a businessman from Quebec, nearly twice her age.

The young woman, who moved to Montreal in 1995, embarked on a lavish lifestyle. There were trips to Tahiti and London, sailboat rides, and constant rounds of parties.

Each time she discussed marriage, however, her mate was evasive, she said.

"I wanted to marry him from the start, but all I got from him was excuses," she said.

They weren't excuses. He didn't want to marry you because he knew you were after the money, not him. So he chose not to marry you.

She says she didn't realize that, as a woman living with a man in Quebec without a marriage certificate, she didn't have the same rights as a woman who was formally married.

Ignorance of the law, is not a valid excuse under the law.

Lawyers for the woman are challenging Canada's definition of marriage, set out as the "lawful union" between two people. They argue that two people who live together for years, even if they don't formally tie the knot, should be recognized under the law.

Which is why I have said for years, if you gonna live under one roof with a woman, marry her. If you don't want to, don't live with her. If they get their way with this, then this should also extend to female room mates, not just someone you happen to be having sex with.

"A ceremony is no longer what creates the marital bond," said one of the woman's lawyers, Marie-Hélène Dubé.

Marie, you're an idiot. Marital bond requires a certificate and/or ceremony!

In fact, Quebec is the only province that doesn't afford common-law spouses the same protections as married ones. The lawyers are also challenging part of the Quebec Civil Code.

The woman, who split from her ex in 2001 but has shared custody of the children, receives $35,000 a month in child-support payments. But she wants a separate sum of $56,000 a month in spousal support for herself.

Under cross-examination, she admitted to the court that her former partner was paying for a new $2.4-million home for her and their children in upper Outremont, along with $500,000 for her to furnish and fix it up. He was also paying for a cook, two nannies, and the children's private schooling.

An association representing single parents and reconstituted families in Quebec has obtained intervenor status in the case. A lawyer for the group said the matter is important because it addresses the rights of children.

The woman's former partner is to testify on Thursday.

The in-equality of the engagement ring.

Diamonds are a boy's best friend: The launch of the male engagement ring

By Sara Nelson
Last updated at 12:08 PM on 16th January 2009

A band to bond: The male engagement ring

A band to bond: The male engagement ring

A jewellery chain is set to be the first in the country to sell engagement rings exclusively for men.

H Samuel says the move comes after demands from female customers for equality - as increasing numbers of women propose to their partners.

Called the Tioro ring, it is a titanium band embedded with a discreet diamond and is priced at a modest £79.99.

Male engagement rings are worn in parts of Scandinavia and Basque regions of Spain but are a rare sight in Britain where, up to now, they tended to only be available from upmarket designers or hand made on demand.

As well as issues of equality driving demand for male engagement rings, H Samuel says women are equally enthusiastic about them as a means of making it clear their men are spoken for.

An H Samuel spokesman said: 'Women are no longer waiting until the man pops the question. We are equals in the workplace, equals in our relationships and we make our own decisions.

'Over 60 per cent of our customers think it's a good idea for women to ask men to marry them and many are currently sealing the deal with watches and other jewellery.

'The men's engagement ring is a clear message to everyone that a man is going to be married and also works perfectly for civil partnerships.'

For those considering the move, there is a specific etiquette on how men should wear their engagement rings.

Prospective grooms-to-be should not wear both a wedding and engagement ring on the same finger as women do.

Instead, the male engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand up until the wedding, after which it is transferred to the same finger of the right hand and a wedding band worn on the left hand.

The spokesman added: 'The ring aims to redress the balance of one side of the couple giving and the other simply receiving, as well as being an outward and visible sign of being "taken".

'Both sides of the partnership can now wear a symbol to celebrate their forthcoming nuptials.'

The ring will become available online tomorrow.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1118763/Diamonds-boys-best-friend-The-launch-male-engagement-ring.html

$200 Canadian for an engagement ring? This is fair and equal treatment? Whatever happened to spending 2 to 3 months of your salary on the ring? Bullshit! Both sides can now wear a symbol alright, only thing is that the guy spent $3000 on her ring, but she spent a lousy $200-300. And we get called cheap! WTF?!?

This is also a sign of the times, the complete pussification of men. Not only are we expected to behave like women, now we must wear engagement rings like women. Can anybody suggest a good place on this planet were men are men, and women are women? I really want outta here!

Talk about entitlement

I've read some ad's on CL that made me shake my head, but this one takes the prize for today. Seriously, 40 years old and still deluding herself into believing (with much feeling no doubt), that she's as hot today as when she was 20 years ago.
For the last 20 years, she has been fucked and chucked, and still clings fiercely to her sense of entitlement. Well brothers, at least she admits she's a brat, immature, and demanding beyond all intelligence. Where do I sign up?.... NOT!


so many men, so few can afford me - 40 (GVRD)

I will be frank out front. I am looking for my sugar daddy.

about me:

I am an intelligent, smart, classy, insightful and humorous Chinese lady who is sweet, immature, and pure with childish innocent quality.

about you:

You need to be willing to support me financially and love and care for me almost unconditionally especially when I am being a brat.

If you are interested in supporting a sophisticated 40 year old woman who looks like a beautiful and sexy 30 year old and acts like a sweet little girl,I am looking forward to hearing from you.

PS: I am a full time university student without much work experience.

Sweetie, I doubt you have any experience except in how to be a whore for money... and be dishonest about it too. Well, bad news, your pussy power doesn't work here.

And here is yet another one, this time with comments.


Fall in Love (Vancouver)
I’m looking for laughter and friendship that turns into romance and passion. As far as what I am attracted to: charm, intelligence, ambition, drive, Caucasian or European men, between ages of 30-40, no children, above 5'10, handsome or pretty boy face, someone who knows a thing or two about fashion, culture, and someone who likes the city lifestyle and spending time with friends. These are not necessarily requirements but a place to start.

Sweetie, you forgot to state how old (or used) you are. If a guy is spending time with his friends, what makes you think he has so much time to be waiting for you?

I love brunch on a Sunday morning, coffee and conversation, romantic walks at the park, holding hands, checking out new restaurants and bars in the city, seeing a live show, going to the art gallery, going to movies, a weekend getaway to Vegas or at cute B&B nearby, spending low key down time cooking dinner, cuddling on the couch with a movie and a bottle of wine, or skipping out of work to stay in bed all day to be intimate and sharing a closeness. Those are the things that come to mind when I think of a great relationship.

Translation: A guy with tons of money to waste on me, that is her measure of a great relationship. I doubt she will contribute to the B&B, or the weekend Vegas getaway. Nights out on the town in those bars and restaurants that she writes about, well guess what guys, you have to fit the bill. And if you don't, be prepared to get dumped and called "cheap". Personally, I would take being called cheap with some pride, considering it's just prudent fiscal management (something these chicks don't understand).

I hope you're slightly naughty but mostly nice. You conduct your life with integrity and have conquered your demons. Be open-minded as well as fun and adventurous. I want a man that is strong, assertive and knows when to take charge, but who isn't afraid to show his sweet, romantic side and be affectionate and vulnerable too.

Right, sure, whatever you say. It's mostly true until she get's her claws into you via marriage and kids. Then her dominant personality comes shining through. You are busy busting your ass to make a living for yourself, and your family... only to be served divorce papers and get taken to the cleaners.


You have a good career, are emotionally secure, warm and positive. You should be at a good place in your life and want to share yourself with someone special. You are confident, sincere, kind and want to dedicate your time to getting to know me and developing a mutually admirable and supportive long term relationship if the chemistry is there.

I miss the feeling of falling in love and losing myself in reckless abandon but I realize we need to click on multiple levels for this to work. I want you to be the first thought when I wake up and my last phone call of the night. I hope to meet someone open to that rarity but this is not an easy thing to find. I'm very selective, as you should be as well. This ad is not meant for everyone but just the one person that is meant for me.

WTF? Is this a woman grown? Or a girl in a woman's body? This is the reason why romance novels is such a big market, it's filled with fantasy that has no basis on reality. Those novels are packed with rich guys that have nothing better to do than spend their time doting on women that aren't worth the time, money or effort. Rare is right, Money first, her feelings second, and all the rest after that.

I would be happy to tell you all about me and share my photos if you send some photos of yourself and what an ideal relationship is for you and how you can fit in my life. Please don't send me one line emails as it really doesn't show any type of sincerity. Let's stop wasting time and let's start a dialogue.

Yeah, you are real sincere....NOT!

Usurping the father.

Another classic case of state interference where none is wanted or needed.


Quebec father asks court to clarify parental rights in grounding case

12-year-old girl got a lawyer after father cancels trip

Last Updated: Tuesday, January 13, 2009 | 1:38 PM ET

A Gatineau father has asked Quebec's highest court to rule on the rights of parents after a lower court ordered he overstepped his bounds by prohibiting his daughter from going on a school trip.

The Quebec Court of Appeal in Montreal heard arguments Tuesday in the case of a 12-year-old girl who took her father to court after she was grounded.

In June 2008, the girl was preparing to go on a three-day trip with her Grade 6 class to Quebec City to celebrate their graduation from elementary school.

However, the father told the girl she was not allowed to go after she disobeyed his orders to stay off the internet.

The girl, whose parents are divorced, got a lawyer and took the matter to Quebec Superior Court.

Judge Suzanne Tessier ruled in June that the father didn't have the right to bar the girl from the outing.

In her ruling, the judge said there was no reason for the punishment to stand, since the girl was living with her mother, even though the father had custody at the time. The judge said the punishment was also excessive.

The father has since given up custody of his daughter. However, his lawyer said he appealed to clarify the rights of parents in such situations because he still has custody of his three other children.

The man's lawyer argued before the three-member appeal panel Tuesday that he was only exercising his parental rights.

The judges have reserved their decision.

What is feminism?

This is a question I have been pondering for some time.

What is feminism?

Feminism at its core is a movement of hate: towards men and children.


"I have little sympathy for men. Like a Jew just released from Dachau, I watch the handsome young Nazi soldier fall writhing to the ground with a bullet in his stomach and I look briefly and walk on. I don't even need to shrug. I simply don't care. What he was, as a person, I mean, what his shames and yearnings were, simply don't matter.” Marilyn French

Is this the famous nurturing of the female form I hear so much about?


“We are out to destroy the family. The best way to do that is to begin by attacking its weakest member, the unborn child.” Simone Weil

Shocking, and frankly insane. Remember this quote the next time some feminazi is yelling at you at the top of her lungs. Throw this in her face. They advocate the murder of the unborn.


I feel that 'man-hating' is an honorable and viable political act.” Robin Morgan

A political act it may be, but there is no honour in this. I doubt she has any idea of the concept.


"The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race."Sally Miller Gearhart

I wonder how this is to come about? Murder? Mass-murder? Genetic manipulation?


Imagine the rage that would be occuring if the above were to be said by men towards women. We would never hear the end of it. So how can it be said that feminism is about equality? It can't. It's bullshit.

How the majority of hetro sexual women, could be brainwashed by a few lesbian man haters, I will never understand. Perhaps someone could explain it to me.


Talk about taking it slow

I've heard of taking it slow, but this is ridiculous.

BEIJING -- A 107-year-old Chinese woman who was afraid to marry when she was young has decided to look for her first husband and hopes to find a fellow centenarian so they will have something to talk about, a Chinese newspaper reported yesterday.

Wang Guiying is worried she is becoming a burden to her aging nieces and nephews since breaking her leg when she was 102 and having to stop doing household chores that included washing her clothes.

Equality in Advertising: Thanks Toyota!

Truth, about DV!

The simple truth: To each own self be true:

The current ratio is 4 to None.

All things being equal.
My Economics prof always said, that when you look at economics, you must look at at it as all things being equal.
Economics, is perhaps, the only scientific study of money matters, that does actually treat all things as being equal.
Do I have a point?
Yes, and it is this, when it comes to reproductive rights, the odds are in favour of a woman and what she wishes.

When it comes to reproductive rights, women have the following:
-the pill
-the "morning after" pill (which is nothing more than a triple dose of the pill).
-abortion
-adoption

When it comes to men's reproductive rights, you have the following:

Nothing.

That's right, nothing.
Once the sperm leaves a man's scrotum... there are no rights to be had by a man.
Not by law.
Not by morality (so called).

There simply is nothing!

The feminist movement has successfully blocked the male birth control pill.
And that is logical if you come to think of it. Men are slaves, but not to womin as some would have you believe.
We are slaves to our sperm.

So what do we do about it? The answer may scare you.
