SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight, Monday, June 18, 2012 at 9pm EST, Paul Elam of AVoiceForMen and Dr Tara Palmatier of Shrink4Men will discuss Golden Uteruses, the Cult of Mommy-hood, the Women Are Always the Victim Contrary to All Evidence and the public reaction to Mary Richardson Kennedy's suicide and divorce from Robert Kennedy, Jr.
What is a Golden Uterus? A Golden Uterus (GU) is a woman who believes the very common act of giving birth is an act of such cataclysmic importance that all humanity should bow down at her feet, worship her and give her special privileges and, in some cases, a get-out-of-jail-free card just because she's reproduced. If only the physical act of giving birth could automatically make someone a good mother and a good person.
Simply put, it doesn’t. In fact, becoming a mother can make an immature, controlling, abusive, entitled, crazy woman even worse than she was pre-baby.
Please tune in and call in (+1 310 388 9709) or Skype in to share your experiences and frustrations with Golden Uteri and your thoughts on the public reaction to the Kennedy divorce/suicide who seem to have the GUs whipped up to the point they're foaming at the mouth.
Man Woman Truth co-hosts Paul Elam of AVoiceforMen and Dr Tara Palmatier of Shrink4Men will continue their conversation from two weeks ago, Getting Honest about Boys, on Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 9pm EST. They'll take a closer look at how society has been and continues to fail and damage half its youth and make suggestions about what steps we can take to address this problem.
If you're able to catch the show live, please call or Skype in to share what your parent(s) taught you about women, relationships and men's role in relationships with women. If you can't catch the show live, please email your experiences to Paul or Dr Tara via their respective websites.
The call-in number is +1 310 388 9709. Hope you can make it!
Please join us Monday, April 9, 2012 at 8pm EST when Paul Elam of AVoiceforMen and Dr Tara Palmatier of Shrink4Men will discuss the merits of thinking with your big head instead your "little head" and your lower brain. Too many otherwise intelligent men get themselves into trouble by choosing romantic partners based solely upon physical attraction and sabotage potentially good relationships or stay in bad ones out of fear.
Physical attraction is important, but if what lies beneath the surface is ugly and incredibly damaged, you’re not using your big head. If you sacrifice your self-respect and integrity to please a woman, you’re using your little head. If you sacrifice your self-respect and integrity because you believe you can’t live without some woman, you’re using your lower or “reptilian” brain because you’re allowing fear to guide your behavior.
We'll also discuss how to engage both your reason and emotion in your relationships with women. Reason and emotion do not have to be antagonists and making proper use of both is one path toward having more satisfying relationships.
As always, the phone lines will be open, so if you have a story about allowing your little head or lower brain to do the thinking for you or how you’ve been able to get your self-respect in alignment with what you will and will not tolerate in a partner, give us a call at +1 310 388 9709.
Does your wife, girlfriend or ex regularly blow up your phone with needy, hostile, delusional and menacing texts, emails and voicemails?
Does your ex or a woman in whom you have no romantic interest "accidentally" turn up whenever you go out?
Are you being stalked by your ex, your girlfriend, wife or a woman you never dated, but who has developed an obsession for you nevertheless?
Do you know that men are just as likely to be the victims of stalking as women?
If you're a woman, is your partner's ex stalking you?
Do you know that many of your girlfriend’s, wife’s or ex’s nuisance, clingy, possessive, angry, threatening, Internet searches, social network, text/telephone/email and/or destructive behaviors qualify as stalking and harassment?
Do you know that many women often use Family Court and negative advocate attorneys to stalk and harass their ex-husbands and/or fathers of their children?
Do you know that stalking and harassment are abuse?
Do you know that stalking and harassment are a form of domestic violence?
Do you know that stalking and harassment (and cyberstalking and cyber-harassment) are crimes?
This Monday, November 7, 2011 at 9pm EST Dr. Tara J. Palmatier of Shrink4Men will discuss women who stalk, the seriousness of this issue and what to do if you're currently being stalked.
If you've been the target of a female stalker and have questions or a story you'd like to share about being stalked, or if you're a member of law enforcement with advice to share, please tune in and Skype or call in +1 310 388 9709.
Do you fancy yourself a knight in shining armor? Are you a sucker for damsels in distress? Do you like coming to your partner's "rescue?" Do women with a sob story make you feel protective? Do you have a pattern of getting involved with waifs and distressed damsels du jour and set out to prove that "you're not like all the other guys?"
Do you believe that your crisis-ridden partner "can't live without you?" Do you need to feel like a "hero?" Are you a woman who has a pattern of getting involved with men who have crazy, unstable and abusive exes? Do you try to show these men "you're not like all the other women who hurt him?" Are you a rescuer of rescuers?
If so, tune into Shrink4Men Radio on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9pm EST when Dr Tara Palmatier of Shrink4Men will be discussing the unhealthy relationship patterns in which many white knights, heroes, knights in shining armor, rescuers, fixers, professional caretakers and rescuers of rescuers find themselves stuck. We'll also touch upon the concepts of hostile dependency, codependency, and parentified children.
If you have questions or a story to share, please tune in and call or Skype in +1 310 388 9709.
Do you throw up a little in your mouth whenever you hear a woman say she expects her man to "treat her like a princess?" Are you tired of the Princess Mentality exhibited by so many women today? Then it's time to stop playing page, serf and vassal to her self-appointed highness.
With the exception of the few remaining royal houses, princesses aren't born, they're made. Well-meaning parents buy Disney princess costumes for their little girls and refer to their daughters as their "little princesses."
Here's the problem: Many little princesses grow up to become adult princesses with out of control entitlement issues, believe it's all about them, all the time and that their wants and feelings trump all else. Self-appointed princesses typically don't see their partners as equals, but rather as subjects who live to serve them. Reciprocity? Pfft.
For the men out there who haven't figured out that a woman who refers to herself as princess is best avoided (huge red flag), this show is for you. It's time to stop playing vassal to Her Monstrosity (i.e., her monstrous, over-inflated ego) and time to learn that healthy love relationships are about treating one another with MUTUAL respect, dignity, integrity, love, affection, consideration, getting back what you give and not treating one partner like royalty.
Please join your co-hosts, Dr Tara Palmatier of Shrink4Men and "Dr Paul" Elam of AVfM on Monday, March 26, 2012 at 9pm EST, when they'll discuss a big part of the Princess Problem: Men who buy into these royal pains in the arse.
Phone lines will be open +1 310 388 9709.
Okay, let's try this again . .
Do you ever feel like you are being tested in a relationship with a woman to see just how much garbage you will put up with? Does her voice start sounding like fingernails on a chalkboard? Do you often want to pull your hair out and scream “What the heck will it take to make her get off my back??!!”
Well, she is probably not a borderline, or a narcissist or any other kind of personality disorder.
She is a normal female, and she is making you crazy with normal female behavior. She isn’t bad, guys. She isn’t evil. She’s just a woman.
Sh*t testing, also known as nagging, criticizing, shaming, guilting and moaning, manipulating and a dozen other labels that your average guy knows all too well, is often a normal and expected part of the female relationship repertoire, and the fact is that most all men are really powerless and ignorant when it comes to handling these things.
You don’t have to take the brunt of this nonsense, and tonight, on Red Pill Relationship Rehab with Dr. Tara J. Palmatier of Shrink4Men and Dr. Paul of AVoiceforMen, are going to discuss this and the very simple solutions will bring peace back into your life and help you to understand that saying No to a woman is neither a four-letter word nor is it "abuse."
The call in number is 310-388-9709. The show starts at 9:00 p.m. EDT.
Have you ever been told, "You're so angry!" and then felt wrong or ashamed? Does it seem like it's peachy keen for your wife, girlfriend, ex --- or any woman for that matter --- to lash out at you in anger or rage, but if you become angry in return, you're labeled the "scary-angry guy" while she's only "expressing her feeelings?" Have you had to disavow your feelings, especially angry feelings, in your relationship to the point where you feel shut down and maybe a little (or a lot) depressed? Do you feel mute rage, meaning that when you're angry, you can't articulate it? Are you afraid that if you let go and express your anger that you'll lose control of yourself?
Are you sick and tired of hearing that, "men aren't good at expressing emotions" or, even more ludicrous, that "men don't have emotions?" Worse yet, do you believe it? If you're a woman married to a man with a crazy, abusive ex, do you ever find yourself wondering why your husband seems numbed out and unphased while you are legitimately angry at his ex's latest whack-o stunt? Do you feel your anger for your partner?
If so, please join Dr Tara J. Palmatier of Shrink4Men and her guest, Paul Elam of AVoiceforMen on Monday, October 10, 2011 at 9pm EST when they'll be discussing the topic of male anger and how men can learn to make friends with their anger and channel it in healthy and productive ways. Anger isn't scary; it becomes scary when to ignore, deny it and don't do anything with it.
Telephone lines will be open, so if you have a question or would like to add to the conversation, please call (+310 388 9709) or Skype in. Dr T and Paul would love to hear from you!
Does your wife, girlfriend, ex or partner's ex have a Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde personality?
Does she have a "good mask" that she shows the outside world while subjecting you and/or the kids to her cruel and abusive side?
Does she have little to no empathy or selective empathy?
Does she throw a temper tantrum, rage, pout or allege "Abuse!" when you try to hold her accountable for her bad behaviors?
Does she value you (and others) based on what you can do for her or what she can get from you? In other words, does she see people as objects of utility?
Does she lie, cheat, use violence and other forms of intimidation and manipulate to get her way or to "win?"
Does she have scorn and contempt for the people she victimizes or "pulls one over on?"
Has she ever threatened to destroy you and/or tried to make good on her threats?
Does she only recognize her rights and believe she's entitled to violate the rights of others?
Does she have a gross sense of entitlement?
Does she blame others for her own failures, bad decisions and bad behaviors?
If so, your wife, girlfriend, ex or partner's ex may have sociopathic traits or be a full-blown sociopath.
Historically, men have been diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder far more than women. Female sociopaths exist, it's just that we use different terminology to identify them.
It's time to rethink the qualifiers of female sociopathic behavior, which Dr Tara J. Palmatierof Shrink4Men will be discussing during this Shrink4Men Radio episode.
The telephone lines will be open, so if you have questions, stories or thoughts on this topic, please call in (310 388 9709) or Skype in. And Happy Halloween!
Please join your host, Shrink4Men's Dr Tara J. Palmatier, and her special co-host, AVoiceforMen's Paul Elam, this Monday, February 20, 2012 at 9pm EST when they'll be speaking with Daddy Justice aka Ben Vonderheide about his role in exposing Pennsylvania's most recently outed corrupt judge, Kelly S. Ballentine.
We'll also be talking with Ben about his brand of activism and how he manages to bust one corrupt official after the next like catching fish in a barrell.
The telephone lines will be open, so please Skype in or call 310-388-9709 with your questions and comments. It should be another inspiring evening with Daddy Justice. Hope you can make it!
Shrink4Men Radio is back this Monday, January 9, 2012 with your host, Dr. Tara J. Palmatier, and her guest, family law attorney, Natalie Malonis. The topic will be High-Conflict Divorce.
Ms. Malonis is both a supporter and contributing author to Shrink4Men. Her articles include:
Leaving an Abusive Wife: Pre-Divorce Checklist Parental Alienation: Navigating the Court System Personality Disorder Diagnoses in Family Law: Pros and Cons Family Court Minefields: Dirty Tricks Used by High-Conflict People in Custody Disputes and Parallel Parenting If you have questions or stories you would like to share, please Skype in or call (310) 388-9709 or post them as comments here on the Shrink4Men website if you're unable to listen to the show live.
Shrink4Men Radio is back tonight, Monday, January 16, 2012 at 9pm EST with you host Dr Tara J. Palmatier and her guest, author and MSW, Tom Golden, an expert in male grief and mourning.
Tom's book, Swallowed by a Snake: The Gift of the Masculine Side of Healing is an excellent resource for men who are mourning a loss and for women seeking to understand the masculine grieving process.
Many men and women who have been involved with abusive, high-conflict and/or personality disordered partners often have a difficult time grieving the loss and letting go of the hopes and dreams they attached to their partners and exes. This is to be expected.
Mourning the loss of someone who has repeatedly hurt and betrayed you is typically more complicated and painful then mourning the loss of someone for whom you have primarily positive feelings. This can be confusing for men who believe they should feel relief to be free of an abusive partner.
We will be discussing these issues for the first 20 minutes or so of the program and then we will take your calls. Tom will only be available for approximately an hour, so if you would like to talk to him, please be sure to call (+1 310 388 9709) or Skype in early.
