Presumably the university will follow the feminist tradition of replacing ‘seminars’ with ‘ovulars’…

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. Paul Jackson says:

    They will no doubt prove that patriarchy is the reason why Usain Bolt can outrun every woman on the planet.

  2. Oh dear – they refer to people on this post doc programme as “fellows” – they’ll have to do something about that terminology!

  3. I can’t resist a more serious comment. There cannot, of course, be any “…..ist science” because science is about objective truth and seeing it through any particular lens is that much less objective and hence less scientific. We recall with a shudder “Aryan Science” as opposed to “Jewish Science”. But I now understand a little better why “feminist science” (or “feminist jurisprudence”) seem fine and dandy to feminists. This understanding came via the excellent book Legalizing Misandry: From Public Shame to Systemic Discrimination against Men by Paul Nathanson and Katherine Young. What I had not realised before reading this book is that feminism took root in academia because of the postmodernist philosophy which now prevails in the humanities – and because postmodernism denies the existence of absolute Truth. Yes, people, it really is that bad. It explains a lot. The reason why feminists are impervious to reason or persuasion by empirical evidence is that they believe they are free to define truth however they wish – in principle. It is not merely that they are dim or cannot see another point of view, they are intellectually corrupt to the core. Frightening. This attitude is incompatible with science, which is based on the premise of a single objective truth.
