Ally Fogg: ‘Getting into bed with Christian fundamentalism: behind the APPG report’

An interesting piece about the All-Party Parliamentary Group which is recommending the criminalisation of the buying of sex (but not the selling of it):

We have here an unholy alliance between religious fundamentalists and gender feminists. We posted a link to an interesting piece on the subject of the ‘Nordic’ and other models of regulating prostitution in a recent episode of Newsnight:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a British writer, publisher, and men's human rights advocate ('MHRA'). My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them). We've launched a public consultation exercise to help us develop our manifesto for the 2015 general election, at which we'll be contesting a number of seats. I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and Anti-Feminism League In 2014 I launched two new campaigns. Men shouldn't marry seeks to raise the consciousness of unmarried men about the extreme risks they'll face if they marry, while The Alternative Sexism Project aims to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more damaging consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  1. So you take your girlfriend out for a meal. You pay. Then you have sex. Have you just broken the law? If not, is it because there are just certain women with whom it is illegal to have sex? How are we to identify these women?

    I notice that the “Nordic Model” is also in the EU policy due for launch http://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/eus-zero-tolerance-policy-and-the-swedish-state-the-coming-censorship/
    More truthfully the Swedish model as it is only Sweden that has adopted this for a few years . Odd really to see it opposed by the much older “Germanic “model from the impeccably liberal Dutch and 
    Germans.   Of coursed these countries are much larger than rich and sparsely Nordic Sweden so may be rather more combarable to crowded England for instance.  It is also interesting to note the Lutheran cast of Nordic Christianity . Of course many churches in the US make common cause with feminists around sex , with a common view males are active agents and females weak, and around male responsibility for breadwinning for dependents. These shifting alliances are more obvious in the US .
