Launch of Men’s Rights Ireland


Time to get serious about Men’s Rights in Ireland, I’ve been blogging for about 8 months, maybe a bit longer – though it seems like a lifetime, I started out as a complete novice, am still learning – slowly – but one thing I already knew before I started this journey into the world of online Men’s Rights activism, was that the core message of the Men’s Human Rights Movement was simple – yet profoundly urgent and necessary.

That Men’s rights are Human Rights, and that the concept of Human Rights as the absolute foundation of any civilised society has become tarnished, had become sullied and stained by decades of attacks and assaults upon it by feminism, and by feminists, who wouldn’t know a Human right if it jumped up and bit them on their arses.

Feminism has divided and conquered, has created a gulf of almost unimaginable distance between men and women, the two complimentary halves of humanity, so much so that I do sometimes despair that this gaping wound can be, or ever will be healed.

Into this gulf they have poured their poison, their vitriol, their spite and malice, and used these toxic miasmic outpourings to dismantle and destroy every last vestige of honour, of integrity and of basic humanity from both civil and political society.

In pursuit of what?

In pursuit of achieving but one gaol – to strip men and boys of their humanity, to reduce men and boys to a lesser sub -class of human beings, if even they acknowledge that men and boys are human beings.

They have done this by one mechanism – redefining humanity – elevating women and girls to some celestial class of human beings and men and boys to that lesser class of sub-human beings – and sub-human beings don’t need human rights – do they?


Men and boys are human beings – and Men’s Rights ARE Human Rights. It is time to take the battle to the feminists, time to take this battle to the streets, into the universities, right into the corridors of power.

That’s where I’m going – want to come?


About Men’s Rights Ireland (‘MRI’)

 In Ireland, the human rights of men and boys are being systematically and relentlessly assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, as they are across much of the developed world. I have decided to launch a new campaigning group, ‘Men’s Rights Ireland’, with the objective of ending those assaults.

I’ve never been a feminist, feminism is an ideology that, like all toxic ideologies rests on a foundation of “othering” an entire class of persons, the core of all feminism(s) is radical feminism, and it is radical feminism that informs all feminisms, and exerts its malign influence on law and public policy. I’ve seen the disadvantaging of Irish men and boys becoming steadily worse since the late 1970’s, as successive governments have danced to the radical feminists’ tunes.

Radical feminism is a female supremacy ideology driven by misandry (the hatred of men). Radical feminists are parasites intent on destroying their host, civilised Irish society. MRI will raise public awareness of the damage being wrought by radical and gender feminists in Ireland, and from the outset we’ll advocate on four platforms:


Fathers’ Rights – the current system tolerates the perpetuation of Parental Alienation of fathers from their children, and ensures fathers are denied reasonable access to their children after relationship breakdowns, when malicious mothers deny them access, which is nothing less than emotional abuse of fathers and their children.

Domestic Violence Against Men – which happen almost on a par with domestic violence against women, but has been ignored, and where a narrative has been manufactured to paint all men as inherently violent – which is simply not true – as has been empirically proven over and over again

Criminal Justice – an ongoing campaign to have the core pillar of Human Justice dismantled – Innocent until Proven Guilty, for one category of crime – Rape and Sexual Assault. The propagandising of a non-existent “rape culture” in Ireland, and across much of the developed world.

Health and Social Funding – for male health and social issues – specifically male health issues (e.g. prostate cancer) which are on a par with specifically female health issues (e.g. breast cancer) the disparity in funding, attention and research is outrageous. Funding and housing support for homeless men and boys, funding for mental health services for men and boys.


On the 3rd May 2014 Men’s Rights Ireland is hosting a Public Event in The Iontas Theatre, National University of Ireland, Maynooth, Co. Kildare with two guest speakers from the UK – tickets for this event go on sale on Wednesday 2nd April 2014, and are only available through the website:

 or by contacting:

Details about this event are on a separate page entitled “Hear The Truth in Maynooth

And me – who am I?

My name is Anne Marie Dempsey, I am a 52 year old mature student of Law and Politics at The National University of Ireland Maynooth, Co. Kildare – and I loathe feminism.


I’ll be waiting at www.

I’m still putting the finishing touches to the place, talk about your extra curvy learning curve – tech wise – but you’re more than welcome to drop by and say hello.


On a personal note, there is one person to whom I owe an enormous debt of gratitude, for answering my innumerable questions, for being the behind the scenes support of  this venture, and for his unflappable and calm serene demeanour, in the face of my many “queries” that generally start with “what the fuck………”

Mike Buchanan of Justice for Men and Boys (and the women who love them) – the man is a saint 🙂

I will of course be supplying the Guinness in Maynooth on the 3rd May 2014.

    I believe pure senseless misandry is no more than half of the motivation behind feminism and feminists. It’s at least as much fuelled by simple greed. Male-bashing and other kinds of feminist whining bring the feminists privileges, money and prestige – which I believe is what they are after the most. Making sure men suffer for it is just a nice extra.

    Also! Will there be any remote participation facilities? (live stream maybe?)
    As a Pole who spent 4 extremely important years of my life in Letterkenny and Belfast, I’m very much interested in this, but my ability to fly around (currently living in London) is limited by my budget.

    Hi Anja,
    I am very excited to see what is happening in Ireland, and hope your space develops harmoniously. You will have the usual ups and downs but let your beautiful inner spirit stay the course.
    Be not dismayed by the hateful feminist gender ideologues and their sycophantic lapdogs. As others before us, have indicted, it is marvellous, not to have to lie and twist the truth of history to peddle a hateful ideology that is feminism as well as the idiotic patriarchy theory and all their associated toxicity.
    I suppose with the next phase of their idiotic revisionist history fiction writing, their next batch of worthless brainwashed PhD gender studies graduates, they will tell us that women built the pyramids of Egypt and the ziggurats of Ur, as well as the modern day Universities where they have become toxic, parasites, poisoning everything they touch. Keep up the good work

    Just watched this video:

    Your response to: “isn’t it the case that woman’s voice was not heard throughout the history and so we just compensating for it” is genius! Literally genius! And in one sentence! The civilizations were evolving to protects women and children. Certainly not to protect men. I feel like I just got a trump card.

    Hi, here’s my post ‘On Being a Feminist Men’s Rights Activist’

    So the ‘innocent till proven guilty’ tenet for example is something I defend from Feminists regularly and too many of them think that it should be dismissed in sex offence trials but the ‘campaign’ is essentially a waste of their time because most feminists and most of society just aren’t that stupid. The whole rape culture thing has famously driven a serious of unfortunate men through horrendous court cases which is awful but as far as I’m concerned it’s also having a detrimental effect on women whose memories are being transformed from things they feel they might’ve done differently to memories of being abused. They’re willingly stripping themselves of autonomy in order to fit in with the dogma of the times and recasting themselves as the weaker sex undoing the great work done in the Sexual Revolution. Work done in part by feminists, affecting women, hence it is still a feminist issue.

    I disagree that feminism has created a gulf between the sexes, not outside of activist discussion. And actually I think that your ‘loathing’ of feminism is just as divisive. I loathe the beliefs of many feminists who wouldn’t, as you say ‘know a human right if it bit them on the arse’ but I believe that there is an egalitarian feminism that won us the vote, that still has a lot of work to do around the world where women are way behind and that values men. The core of all feminisms is not radical feminism any more than the core of Men’s Rights Activism is misogyny, as it’s being portrayed in many places.

    Father’s rights are being ignored but that’s just a symptom of a deeper problem of children’s rights being ignored as they are viewed as property. As investigated by Bell Hooks in ‘Feminism is for Everybody’.

    PS. You’re in Ireland? Hello? Your abortion laws are a disgrace, you need feminists to sort that shit badly, religious nuts.

    In a paragraph you may have misspelled a word, I’m more convinced that it was a pun replacing goal with gaol, the proto-word for jail, but I’d thought I’d bring it up on the off chance that it is an error.

    here is the paragraph:
    “In pursuit of achieving but one gaol – to strip men and boys of their humanity, to reduce men and boys to a lesser sub -class of human beings, if even they acknowledge that men and boys are human beings.”

    I’m reblogging this post so I can publish a response to it. After the best part of a week and several comments made after mine being approved mine is still awaiting moderation which I think is very disappointing. If you’re interested in politics but absolutely refuse to involve yourself in any discussion that doesn’t back you up 100% you’re just a fanatic.

    Read her “Personal Statement” post.
    I know how much feminists love debates that don’t back them up 100% though.
    Heard of the “Men are obsolete” surreal debate, which was won by the proposition ?
