Conservative party conference, ICC (Birmingham) – anti-MGM protest, 3/4 October

We’ve just announced that Mike Buchanan will be standing against Theresa May, prime minister, at the 2020 general election. The story is here. One of the reasons for the decision was that during her six years as Home Secretary – with responsibility for the police – she did nothing to protect male minors from the illegal procedure of non-therapeutic circumcision, and she is doing nothing about the matter as prime minister.

The police and CPS remain complicit in failing to bring prosecutions against the people mutilating the genitals of male minors, invariably for personal financial gain.

At last year’s Conservative party conference in Manchester, we created quite a stir with our Male Genital Mutilation (‘MGM’) protests, handing out leaflets, and engaging with a considerable number of conference attendees. A video (3:14) is here.

We plan to make an even bigger impact at the next conference, in Birmingham, in less than two weeks’ time. Some of our placards and leaflets will feature the image at the start of this post, of a distressed baby boy about to suffer the excruciating and illegal assault of genital mutilation.

One of our placard designs with the image is here, while the two sides of one of our leaflets are here and here. We’ll also be taking leaflets produced by Jews Against Circumcision, Brit shalom: A Peaceful Alternative.

Brit shalom is a naming ceremony for newborn Jewish boys. It’s a humanitarian alternative to Brit milah, which involves genital mutilation.

We plan to be outside the conference venue, the ICC, from around 08:00 for the first two full days – Monday 3 / Tuesday 4 October – as near to the main entrance point to the venue as possible. For our exact location, call Mike Buchanan on the day – 07967 026163. We invite you to join us, and if you’re short of funds, we may be able to help with your travel costs to and from Birmingham. Please email Mike (mike@j4mb.org.uk) if you think you might be able to make it, even if it’s for one of the days, or a few hours. Thank you for your support.

An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the recent highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues, which we co-hosted with A Voice for Men, we invite people concerned about the assaults on men’s and boys’ human rights to become party members. Monthly subscriptions from party members are the financial lifeblood of our political party.

When J4MB was launched in February 2013, we had no basis for forecasting how well, if at all, we would be received by the general public. At that time, the prevailing public conviction was that feminists pursue gender equality, in stark contrast to what was demonstrably true.

Only a small minority of women are feminists. They seek gender supremacy, regardless of the impact on men, women, boys, girls, families, public institutions, and wider society. They are driven by misandry (the hatred of men). If anyone should doubt the truth of these assertions, we invite them to read our 2015 general election manifesto. It explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, usually to advantage women and/or girls. There are no areas in which the state assaults the human rights of women and/or girls specifically.

The 20 areas are:

Abortion

Foetal alcohol syndrome

Genital mutilation

Fatherlessness, restoring strong families

Education

Employment

Access to children after family breakdowns

Domestic violence

Sexual abuse

Armed Forces veterans’ mental health issues

Homelessness

Suicide

Criminal justice system

Paternity fraud

Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders

Divorce

Healthcare provision

Political representation

State interference in director appointments

Expectation of retirement years

The assaults on men and boys are often led or enabled by feminists in influential positions e.g. Theresa May MP (Prime Minister, formerly Home Secretary) and Alison Saunders (Director of Public Prosecutions). Most of the assaults, however, are led by men with no concern for the wellbeing of men and boys as a class.

J4MB is the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. We are reliant on party members and donors to cover the party’s costs, and nobody connected with the party draws any personal income from donations.

Supporters (including donors) tell us we can be proud of what we’ve achieved in three and a half years. Donors have sent sums ranging from £2 to £2,000. We’ve had over 100 appearances on mainstream television and radio – here. Countless newspaper, magazine, and blog pieces have been written about us. The tone of the reporting has usually been challenging and often antagonistic, which we expected, but we have also been surprised by the interest we have triggered in some of the most unlikely people, and we can be sure that we have broken the blanket belief that men’s and boys’ issues are either non-existent, or unimportant. The comments streams following online articles have been very supportive of J4MB and what we’re seeking to achieve.

Our long-term strategy is to challenge the party in power (or parties, in the event of a coalition) because only they have the power to reverse anti-male legislation and policy directions.

We’re working towards the 2020 general election, in which we’ll field candidates in Conservatives seats. In coalition with the Liberal Democrats from 2010, and in sole power from 2015, the Conservatives have been no less anti-male than the Labour party, in some areas going even further than the Labour administrations of 1997-2010.

We’re going to raise our game in a number of areas, which will require a stronger financial base. We wish to increase our membership base in order to meet increasing campaigning costs, and to help build a ‘fighting fund’ for the 2020 general election.

We invite you to become a party member. It’s the most efficient way to demonstrate your support of our work, reducing the need for the periodic appeals upon which we relied in the past. It will also free up valuable time for political campaigning, which would otherwise be spent on fundraising.

We’ve established a range of membership grades, ranging from monthly sums of £5.00 (16 pence per day) to £100.00 (£3.28 per day):

Membership grade                  Monthly donation                   

Bronze                                                        £5.00

Silver                                                          £10.00

Gold                                                            £25.00

Platinum                                                    £50.00

Diamond                                                    £100.00

Members will receive a signed membership certificate, one of the A3 leaflets we were distributing during the 2015 general election – the window poster element is here – and two individually numbered silicone wristbands.

We’d prefer you set up a Standing Order payable directly into the J4MB account, thereby ensuring the full sum of your donations go to J4MB. Our account details:

Account name: Justice for Men & Boys

Sort code: 309054

Account number: 54880968

IBAN: GB08LOYD30905454880968

BIC: LOYDGB21090

Monthly donations can be set up through PayPal, although (small) commissions are taken from donations made that way:

If you want to put in place a regular donation of another amount, we would of course be deeply grateful.

Please email me mike@j4mb.org.uk with the membership grade you’ve settled on, the name you’d like printed on your membership certificate, and your address. Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

Mike Buchanan

The second International Conference on Men’s Issues (London) was a resounding success

10 July 2016 - group shot

The conference finished yesterday, and the overwhelming consensus was that it had been a resounding success. 200 people attended, from 20 countries. All 20 presentations – five of them by women, one by Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley) – were well received, and the attendees greatly enjoyed the social side of the event as well.

Videos of the presentations are on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

William Collins: Pay and employment by sex

An excellent update of an earlier post, thoroughly debunking the feminist narrative on the ‘gender pay gap’. An extract:

For the first time we see clearly that women below the age of about 35, working full time, have a higher median hourly pay rate than men of the same age. The histograms of Figures 1 and 2 for 2013 and 2014 indicated only a very slightly greater median pay for women in their twenties, of a percent or so. But Figure 3 indicates clearly for the first time, in 2015, a marked advantage for young women. The median hourly pay rate for women in their twenties working full time is around 8% higher than that for men (average over ages 21-29).

Collins refers to the fact that men in the UK pay 72.9% of the income tax collected by the government. My blog piece on the matter is here.

British men pay £75.4 billion p.a. more income tax than women, and in return they get a state which assaults their human rights in many areas.

Darts ace Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor is told to pay estranged wife half of his £3m fortune

The latest example of state-sponsored highway robbery of a divorced man. An extract:

The judge said Mrs Taylor did not work and had no realistic earning capacity as ‘she has throughout the marriage been a homemaker’.

Thanks to her divorce, being a ‘homemaker’ seems to have been very lucrative for Mrs Taylor. Nice work, if you can get it, but there’s a severe shortage of well-off women willing to work and support male ‘homemakers’.

In our 2015 general election manifesto we covered the issue of divorce settlements (pp. 57-60).

Where are all the expat women?

Why are a minority of British executives who take up positions abroad with their companies women? Obvious reasons include:

  • A minority of British executives are women
  • Work orientation. As a class, women are less career-oriented than men (Dr Catherine Hakim’s Preference Theory (2000) – 4 in 7 British men are work-centred, only 1 in 7 British women is)
  • Hypergamy. Women seek to marry men who are substantially better-off than themselves, and this tendency increases as a woman’s personal wealth rises. The women who might be candidates for working abroad will therefore tend to have high-earning partners who would naturally be reluctant (or unable) to relocate abroad. The same would be less frequently true for male executives
  • Family responsibilities. If one person in a couple is to remain in the UK with the children, and the other work abroad, most women would prefer the first role to the second

None of this makes sense to work-centred feminists, of course, so I thank Martin for this piece of absurd feminist propaganda from the BBC. An extract:

“Women are just as likely to accept offers to work abroad, but they are simply less likely to be offered the opportunity to take on these roles” by their firms, says Cynthia Emrich, a vice president at Catalyst, a New York-based global nonprofit that promotes women in the workplace.

Only about 17% of women take international assignments compared to 28% of men, according to a 2012 report from Catalyst that studied high-potential employees from top business schools. Despite having the same willingness to take on a global role as their male counterparts, 64% of women say they were never offered a move abroad, compared with just 55% of men, the report showed.

Even if we take the data at face value, it simply doesn’t support the claim that ‘women are just as likely to accept offers to work abroad, but they are simply less likely to be offered the opportunity to take on these roles’. A majority of executives (64% of women, ‘just’ 55% of men) were never offered a move abroad, yet 17% of women took up the opportunity, compared with 28% of men. Surely this shows that women are less likely than men to accept the offers, as we’d expect to be the case?

Catalyst is a radical feminist campaign organization, whose ‘Bottom Line’ series of reports are used by those seeking to misrepresent correlation as causation with respect to the link between gender balance on corporate boards and financial performance.

Jews Against Circumcision

We are sorry to learn that a remarkable website is no longer in operation, that of ‘Jews Against Circumcision’. In 2004 the organization produced a powerful leaflet with print on both sides, Brit Shalom: A Peaceful Alternative.

Brit Shalom is a naming ceremony for newborn Jewish boys, which doesn’t involve genital mutilation. We’ve distributed many copies of the leaflet during our Golders Green and Speakers’ Corner protests, and will be taking a stock of them to the Conservative party conference for our anti-MGM protests next Monday and Tuesday.

Don’t patronise us! Freshers at York University’s first sex consent classes stage protests by walking out in disgust

Our thanks to Paul F for this, and several tips of the hat to Ben Froughi. An extract:

One consent class saw a quarter of freshers walk out in disgust and handfuls walked out of several of the others.

Campus activist Ben Froughi, 23, a third-year accounting student, stood outside some of the sessions handing out fliers and encouraging students to boycott the talks if they disagreed with them.

‘Consent talks are patronising,’ he said. ‘If students really need lessons in how to say yes or no then they should not be at university.

‘There is no correct way to negotiate getting someone into bed with you. In suggesting that there is, consent talks encourage women to interpret sexual experiences that have not been preceded by a lengthy, formal and sober contractual discussion as rape.

‘Consent talks propagate the backward message that all women are potential victims and all men potential rapists.’

Mike Buchanan will stand against Theresa May MP, prime minister, at the 2020 general election

Following a strategic review of our options for the 2020 general election, we’ve adopted a new strategy, the elements of which will be revealed in due course.

The first element is that I’ll be standing against Theresa May MP, prime minister, in her Maidenhead constituency, which she has represented since its creation in 1997. She is, of course, a self-declared feminist – infamously wearing a Fawcett Society T-shirt bearing the words, ‘This is what a feminist looks like’, when in opposition – and she heads a deeply anti-male (and socially unconservative) Conservative government, as anti-male as any of its Labour predecessors. The administration is doing nothing, for example, about the decades-old assaults on the nuclear family, and the denial of access after family breakdowns of children, fathers, and paternal grandparents.

The Maidenhead Advertiser has just exclusively broken the story, here. It’s already attracted one snarky comment, to which I’ve replied. I invite J4MB supporters to post their own comments. Let’s send a clear message to the good people of the Maidenhead constituency that men’s and boys’ human rights have been assaulted by the state’s actions and inactions for too long, and must end.

I worked in Maidenhead from 1979-88, after graduating from Reading University, and lived in nearby Cookham and then Marlow. I started as a graduate trainee with Beecham Toiletries at their plant in Maidenhead – known locally as ‘the Brylcreem factory’, on account of many tonnes of the stuff being made there daily. It was at the time the largest toiletries factory in Europe. I spent the last three years as Chief Buyer, before being headhunted by Gillette.

Those 10 years were the happiest years of my working life, and I look forward to meeting again many former colleagues, and to spending a good deal of time in the constituency between now and the 2020 general election… and for years afterwards, obviously.
