Interview with MENS NEWS DAILY

Today, I had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Lasalle, the editor of Mens News Daily, a news and commentary site on men's issues. I figured that the editor of a large men's news site would have his pulse on what makes (some) men tick. Here are my questions and Mr. Lasalle's responses:

1) What made you decide to start MND--was it personal, political or do you just have an interest in men's issues?

When I first encountered the divorce "system" in 1995, I observed that while women were well represented and supported as a special class within the system, men were rarely acknowledged except in their capacity as income earners.

I also discovered a network of judges, lawyers, social workers, non-governmental organizations, and court-appointed evaluators. All were called to serve the needs of Judges and their protocols, and all were dependent on the State (and each other) for referrals and new business. Virtually all of these players operated under the pre-conceived notion that the State had already assumed the role of "father" under Parens Patriae. My role - the role I was given but did not want - was to be that of a quiet surf, too proud or too shamed to raise a voice in protest.

In my experience, family court was really Trial by Ordeal - and, instead of helping my family through a difficult circumstance, the system instead seemed bent on making it much worse. Not surprisingly, I also found that support for fathers within the system was virtually absent. Using the web, I learned of many other men and fathers around the globe whose experience with family court - and other branches of the legal system - was as Kafka-esque as my own.

While my experience has acquainted me with so-called "men's rights issues", MND itself is not affiliated with any men's organizations and is solely the product of my own imagination. The site is the manifestation of my conclusion that the rules-of-engagement between the sexes is so murky and in such flux right now, you need a daily news source just to keep up with it.

2) What are the demographics of men on your site--are they married, single, divorced? What are their age ranges? What issues are the men interested in--child custody, marriage, men's rights?

It's about an 80%-20 distribution between men and women.

Our users span a range of demographic particulars - but I expect that most support what I support: liberty of expression in an free marketplace of ideas.

3) Men are marrying less and less. Do you have any insight from your readers as to why they do not want to marry? Fewer men are going to college; any insight into why not? More men between the ages of 22 and 34 are living at home--what is the general concensus from your readers as to why?

I think many men learn about the state of marriage the hard way - through painful experience. It's difficult to convey basic facts about the average man's prospects, since young men often believe they are the exceptions. But the raw facts are simple enough: the average American man is likely to be divorced at least once in his lifetime. And there's the rub: men and women across our society think marriage vows are situational. So, in place of a sacred union, marriage has become an expensive-to-dissolve legal contract whose disposition effects the children, the estate, and the future earning power of the disenfranchised party. (At least the wedding party was a blast...)

Fewer men are going to college because the fast track to education is reserved for the 'disadvantaged' sex - women. Men are thus squeezed to fit the new agenda, thereby themselves becoming a disadvantaged underclass: college graduation rates for men are fast approaching a lopsided 40% compared to women.

Title IX is a clear example of gender-conscious social engineering. The furor caused by Larry Summers' comments last year regarding women in science - and the dull apologies that followed - is another fair testament. On the other hand " slacker men" hits a nerve as a caricature because American men really do seem to be throwing-in the towel on starting a family or planning beyond their own needs in life.

Some say the evils of radical feminism are responsible for men's troubles nowadays. That may be true, but in my opinion "radical feminism" is a symptom of men's malaise, not its cause.

4) How do men on your site feel about women, feminists in particular? What would a psychologist or others working with men really need to know about their psychology to make a difference in their lives?

I think the vast majority of the men visiting MND have healthy relationships with women. I don't think American men are 'angry' at women. They're angry at the social and legal customs that sometimes place women above the rules that men must follow. (Part of my job is to highlight those disparities in the stories I cover.)

I think men's psychology is fundamental: most of us are purposeful. Most of us are idealistic. Most of us are loyal. Most of us want the best for all concerned.

I think that about covers it.

5) What is the best way to advocate for men's rights and issues? Grassroots organizations, writing to politicians, protesting in the streets?

There are many organizations out there, and a quick search of the web will put you in contact with local groups.

National organizations like ACFC are a good place to start - they can put you in touch with local chapters everywhere across the country. There are many others, of course - at both the local and international level. Most are great. Caveat Emptor, of course!

He is referring to college admissions procedures that are evolving to favor female-centric activities, such as grades and soft extra-curriculars, over male-centric activities, such as standardized test scores and sports achievements. There has been copious writing on these subjects, including two books.

Mike thanks for providing information of a misandry academics and family courts as the popular media often ignores.

After three years of marriage, my wife divorced me. Privately she told me she was unhappy and I did not make her happy. Publicly she called me abusive. Blessed with an only son born May 3, 2000, Mark Anthony Ruffolo.

Without due process, but as a matter of routine, after a fifteen minute discussion before a Kane County, Illinois family judge (, I was awarded four days every month to parent our son; ordered to pay $2,600 in support; $200,000 of my savings frozen; and, an order of protection entered against me for my wife.

After three years, one hundred court calls, $150,000 in legal fees, and three jobs, I lost a successful career; involved in a dozen incidents calling for police; imprisoned; filed for personal bankruptcy; car repossessed; and evicted from my apartment, but won joint custody in Illinois to which 17% of fathers win. Last February 2005, however, my wife in retaliation had my visitation suspended, and still the Kane County Circuit Clerk ( refuses to accept $12,000 in proof of payments as credit for court ordered support paid.

I regret saying, "I do," but miss a son and wife. I will not re-marry, but I remain guarded around a woman.

I'm 28 and am a wall street attorney living in Manhattan. The reason why I'm not married yet is because I haven't found the right girl yet who wasn't obsessed with material things (I'm also religious and most girls in NYC aren't). It's just too risky. I won't marry a girl until I'm REALLY sure that she's worth marrying, and the sad fact is today that many girls are not.

Dr Helen, thanks for your thoughts. Marriage is a contract. Between a women's right to choose, and no fault divorce, is marriage possible anymore?

FWIW, I'm a single man, college educated, financially independent due to business success. My being single has nothing to do with a fear of divorce, losing child custody battles, etc.

I live in the South and have been blessed to know a lot of grand old southern ladies - grandmothers, aunts, neighbors, mom, family friends, etc. - strong women who were down to earth and put their families, homes & husbands on a priority level above careers, pop culture and a constant need for entertainment and social activities.

Someone above said there were few women worth marrying anymore. My current state of mind is I agree with that statement. I'm looking for someone who I think has the potential to become a grand old southern lady and I'm not finding many.

"Whatever the reason, more women apply to college, more are accepted, and more graduate. There are exceptions in a few subjects, including science, engineering, and business.

Harjeet Sekhon, Santa Clara University junior: "I've noticed in our business classes, I think the girls and boys are evenly distributed. But in my sociology class, I do see there's like two boys in a class of thirty.""

These two paragraphs point to the question I always have when I see the statement about the ratio of women to men in college: is that ratio the result of fewer men going to college, or more women going? I always see percentages, but never numbers. As the first paragraph points out, men still dominate in "hard" majors. Most male college students are there because there's an economic payoff, not for some mind broadening (in the view of some) experience.

Men are not afraid of commitment, men are afraid of women who unilaterally end their commitment to men. Women initiated divorce better than 2 out of 3 times. The rational reaction is to not enter into a contract that is non-binding and can be broken without cause. More men will opt out of marriage and our society will suffer until woman stop ending marriages.

PS I married a Russian girl and she is loyal and very good to me. She has to be, her mother would kill her if she wasn't. ;-)

The idea of foreign women seems like a good alternative to american women. The only problem with that is if you bring them here they become americanized and your screwed all over again. As long as the laws financially reward women to divorce then there is no benefit for a man to get married. Stay single, marriage is not worth the risk.

Men are marrying less because:

1. It's expensive and many men simply cannot afford it; home ownership and ample income are a must and that's simply not possible in major metro areas where high paying jobs exist.

2. Women want marriage less; the roles of father and boyfriend/husband are separated. Women (and feminism here has pushed this) are more willing to be single mothers and romance a succession of men.

[This is straight out of feminist 101, everyone from Germaine Greer, Betty Friedan, Kate Millet, and Barbara Ehrenreich have called for the dissolution of the nuclear family and multiple fathers with "it takes a village" of various other people raising "the really cool people's" kids while women embark on in the words of Ehrenreich "a series of passionate and short-lived affairs"]

3. Paternity is always an issue; the old bargain which required men to commit to one woman in exchange for certainty of parentage is gone.

Thus men have no incentive to marry and raise a family; since they must navigate among women who would rather pick and choose short-term fathers and boyfriends; and themselves have no certainty absent a DNA test of paternity.

So men are simply responding to the market created by women for men. Short-term charmers who dont' commit.

i expect what is obvious to me is also obvious to everyone else reading this post.

no american woman in her right mind would have you--not for marriage or anything else. you're probably ugly, fat, poor and there's no question but that you're a raging asshole. what exactly you think you have to bring to the table is beyond me.

the only reason a foreign woman would have you, and face it, the only reason they marry american men in general, is primarily just for the citizenship.

the fact is that studies show that married men are healthier and happier than their single counterparts AND than married women. that's why men continue to get married. it's only you few who complain, you who are bitter about your inability to attract a mate.

the fact is marriage is a good deal for men but not so much for women. while i'm sure there are "ego-centric bitches" out there who follow the path you've described, the vast majority of marriages are noted by women who work outside the home full-time and still do the vast majority of the house cleaning, cooking and child-rearing. And then the husband wonders why she might not feel like fucking him anymore.

Eventually he leaves her for a younger model, telling himself the problem was her lack of libido. The new model loves to fuck him and thinks he's the greatest because she hasn't had to pick up after his ass for ten years. But eventually...

And the cycle continues.

i hope you and your little hand will have a long and happy life together, asshole. believe me, there are no women crying out here because of your insistence on staying single.

Without jumping too much into the pissing match, I second fourthwire's recommendation about Tom Leykis. In fact, I think that Helen should interview him-- it would make for a good article.

Interestingly, I was introduced to Leykis' show via two different women friends. They loved to listen to him. Both were smart and educated. Some women get it; some women don't.

Sadly his show is no longer on in the Seattle area.

I notice you didn't bother to actually deny my charge. It is clear that you are indeed ugly, fat and poor and without any qualities whatsoever that would make you attractive to any woman, which is saying alot since women are, in general, a pretty open-minded gender when it comes to seeing redeeming qualities in men.

I do so wish you could see me. Contrary to your lame attempts to be insulting, I am neither fat, nor ugly, nor stupid, nor, hey, poor! I feel confident, in fact, that if you saw me out and thought you had a snowball's chance in hell, which you don't, you would hit on me.

I have been married, in fact. And guess what? My ex and I are still very good friends. We talk several times a week. In fact, I am friends with most of my ex-lovers. Now, it's possible (as my current YOUNGER boyfriend will tell you) that they only stay friendly in hopes to get with me again. I won't deny that some of them continue to flirt with me and two actually continue to ask me to marry them. But after over ten years, I find it hard to believe that those hopes are really the only reason.

The current boyfriend is not only younger, btw, but built like and Adonis. Oh, and last year I dated a 23 year old. I'm 37 by the way.

Oh, and I have a Bachelor's and two post-graduate degrees. I'd be more than happy to compare ACT, SAT or GRE scores.

So, what state do you live in, my little troll? I say we plan a meeting.

As for men being manipulated into marriage by women, what--are men really that stupid?

And despite your claims that men are choosing to avoid marriage, I say to you again--it is WOMEN who are choosing to stay unmarried.

And your retort is that married women with children don't so much cook as microwave and "heat"? That's your argument, buddy? And "she" chose to have children?
Clearly, the descriptors "insane", "irrational" and "pathological" should be added to your list.

So, what state do you live in, my little troll? I say we plan a meeting.

I just love all the fighting about why this that and the other thing cause this that and the other thing.

What it really gets down it is simple. Our social and political enviroments are anti-father and anti-male (Misandrist) and this develop as a result of pandering to the whiners of the two genders, women. This is motivated by social or political goals with no morale base.

If women ever expect to be equal in society, they need to pick up their asses and shovel some crap rather than shoveling their crap at our asses. Not that I really care.

This problem started a very very long time ago.

Perhaps some of you remember the story of 'Adam' and 'Eve'?

Eve was a companion to Adam given by God, to care for much like God cared for Adam in the Garden.

Eve was his responsibility.

Now had Adam confronted Eve when she revealed the evil she done and punished her promptly, we wouldn't be in the position we are today.

The problem would have been resolved something like this:

Adam: Eve, where have you been?

Eve: Adam, you are naked, I can see your wanker.

Adam: Have you been eating from the forbidden tree?

Eve: You're balls are really big

Adam: You have done evil, you must be punished (SMACK)

Eve: You big brute.


Eve: You bastard


Eve: (finger pointed in Adams face)I dare you to do that again


Eve: That's it, you aren't getting any tonight.



Eve: Adam is Naked and I can see his wanker

GOD: Eve, you have eaten from the forbidden tree, you must be punished.

Adam: No problem Lord, I've already punished her

GOD: Yes, Very well. I see you have done your part, now I must do mine. Eve, childbirth will be a burden, painful and harsh, you'll bleed once a month and have severe cramps as a reminder of your sin. You will be obligated to bring Adam Beer and snacks while he watches ball games with his buddies. And he shall dominate the remote control.....

Eve: But but but

I feel bad just reading some of the comments. One of my brothers is a young bachelor and has met all sorts of women who are financial leeches. He's looking for a smart woman who knows about loyalty and gut-level decency, and I'm beginning to think he won't find it.

I think that one of the problems is that more and more Americans don't have the experience of witnessing a good marriage. My parents have been married over 40 years; my grandparents were married 60 years and 76 years, respectively. Too many of my peers grew up through divorces and their aftermaths, and they have no idea what makes marriage good. It's the same thing that makes young men and women look at babies as a big liability, when in fact they should be a great blessing.

to protect ALL of our freedom.
Yet Men and Fathers have little
to no rights when it comes to protecting our children from
murderous abortion.Yet we are called dead beat dads if we
do not support, provide, and protect our children.Most women
use children as meal tickets and
free rides,And they do NOT have to

Look guys, the verdict in in. Judgement has been made, by we men. American females are the worst on the planet. But the planet is a big place!

Get off your duff, save up a few thousand, take a flight to South America (I recommend Quito Equador or maybe Florianapolis Brazil) and find out what REAL women are like.

Dont buy into the bull the American females push. They only want you to be as miserable and hatefull as they have become.

Just point, laugh, and shop elsewhere.

Also, dont believe the "foreign girls only want citizenship" lies. So what are the American females attracted to, your sparkling personality? HAH!

Once my wife gets her permanent green card, we have both decided we are getting the hell out of America, returning only for business or family concerns.

Do some research, chat up a few girls, pick one to meet with, eventually you will find a keeper. And best of all, you will actually enjoy the process!

Wake up, American men, the real women out there are seeking you! NEVER let diseased, neurotic, flabby American females define your value!

You can do it, I am living proof.

So, as I sit hear reading and trying to get info and a little help I find an article that have some worth. But then as I read I start to see High School pissing matches. Not between punks and preps but now it’s between jaded men and women. If you look HONESTLY you will find a good person. If you are a good person and you both work your stupid asses off life with the other sex wouldn't suck for you all. Tom Leykis does have some good ideas, every one does if you just STFU and open your ears. He grated on me a bit but I listened and started to see where he was coming from, though a bit base.

My wife wants a "short separation" to clean house(separations rarely work) but I am doing my part by going through my self, whole sale, and getting my #$*&%$&*$ cleaned up. If it fails because I didn’t do my best with what I got then I F'd up and failed and the same for her. If you all allow this excuse to rule you then this world is a better place because you all don't bread. Relationships fail because BOTH PEOPLE stopped working at it.

Women are great, men are great. The majority of women (according to our female counselor) have unrealistic ideals and get into a Cinderella dream. Men are bull headed and inattentive. Wait, that would mean that both are pig headed selfish ignorant people.

No wonder both sexes dislike the other and date in an adversarial way.

Maybe it’s me. Maybe this has been going on for a very long time and I finally caught on. But there is something going on. What am I talking about?

How many of you watched the televised proceedings of the 2008 Republican National Convention during the week of 1 September 2008 and the 2008 Democratic National Convention during the week of 25 August 2008? Did you notice anything, shall we say, “different” or “unusual”?

Well, there was a lot of talk about Fathers and Fatherhood on both sides of the aisle. I have been watching televised proceedings of both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions for years and I cannot recall when I have heard Presidential Candidates or their wives talk about Fathers and Fatherhood.

For what, to my knowledge, is the first time, Fathers and Fatherhood was discussed in speeches given by very high profile individuals at the 2008 Democratic and Republican National Conventions. And this discussion of Fathers and Fatherhood which occurred at the 2008 Democratic and Republican National Conventions not only demonstrates that Fatherhood transcends boundaries, but it also sends a clear signal that Fathers and Fatherhood have moved to the center of the national political radar screen.

On Thursday, 4 September 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota, Mrs. Cindy McCain, the wife of Republican Party Presidential Nominee and United States Senator John Sidney McCain III, gave an electrifying speech in which she talked about her Father and shared some of the life lessons she learned from him.

Here is what Mrs. McCain had to say about Fatherhood and her Father:

“My Father was a true ‘Western Gentleman’. He rose from hardscrabble roots to realize the American dream. With only a few borrowed dollars in his pocket, a strong back and a can-do spirit, he built a great life for his family. His handshake was his solemn oath. He looked you straight in the eye and he always believed the best of you unless you gave him good cause not to. Modest and good-natured, he had deep roots in our American soil. He taught me life is not just about you - it’'s also about nurturing the next generation … preparing a better world for all our children and helping them find the right way up . . ..”

On Monday, 25 August 2008 in Denver, Colorado, Mrs. Michelle Obama, the wife of Democratic Party Presidential Nominee and United States Senator Barack Obama rendered a powerful and soulfully riveting keynote speech during which she talked about her Father who, under the most excruciatingly challenging set of circumstances, empowered and strengthened his family and positively shaped the minds and souls of his children.

Mrs. Obama had this to say about her Father:

" . . . My dad was our rock. Although he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his early thirties, he was our provider, our champion, our hero. As he got sicker, it got harder for him to walk, it took him longer to get dressed in the morning. But if he was in pain, he never let on. He never stopped smiling and laughing — even while struggling to button his shirt, even while using two canes to get himself across the room to give my Mom a kiss. He just woke up a little earlier, and worked a little harder . . .."

And on Thursday, 28 August 2008 at Invesco Stadium in Denver, Colorado, Democratic Presidential Nominee and United States Senator Barack Obama in his acceptance speech entitled, “The American Promise”, talked about “a renewed sense of responsibility”.

What does this have to do with America’s promise, our children, and Fathers? An excerpt from Democratic Presidential Nominee and United States Senator Barack Obama’s speech helps us to “connect the dots”:

" . . . And Democrats, we must also admit that fulfilling America's promise will require more than just money. It will require a renewed sense of responsibility from each of us to recover what John F. Kennedy called our "intellectual and moral strength." Yes, government must lead on energy independence, but each of us must do our part to make our homes and businesses more efficient. Yes, we must provide more ladders to success for young men who fall into lives of crime and despair. But we must also admit that programs alone can't replace parents; that government can't turn off the television and make a child do her homework; that fathers must take more responsibility for providing the love and guidance their children need . . .."

Fatherhood. It transcends the boundaries of politics, culture, religion, language, ethnicity and economics.

And now Fatherhood has moved to the center of the national political radar screen.
