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 men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous 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 .
