Survivors UK, and an article by a brainwashed 16-year-old, June Eric-Udorie, for the New Statesman

Our thanks to Claire for alerting us to this. It’s by a New Statesman blogger, June Eric-Udorie (‘Pop culture to politics: musings of a teenager’). Her Cosmopolitan profile is here. It consists of:

I’m June, 16 year old teenage feminist blogger and obsessed with smashing patriarchy. Often found with my nose in a book, talking about vaginas or dancing to Beyonce. Oh, and I’m addicted to Coca-Cola.

Impressive. She also blogs for the Guardian and Huffington Post. The patriarchs are clearly doing a poor job of silencing this young woman. I must raise the matter at the next meeting of the Patriarchy Council.

Her mistresspieces for the Huffington Post include Feminism: Believing in the Power of Vaginas Is Not Something to be Ashamed Of. An extract, displaying her genius in full flow:

I’m a feminist. I’m a very, very proud feminist (this is when you can start judging me). And why shouldn’t I be? Fannies are WAY better. I mean, come on?! We can bring new life into the world and still bounce back into shape. The fact that even men came out of a vagina is saying something about how powerful vaginas actually are. The power of the vagina is why we continue to be oppressed and dominated every day.

Her piece for the New Statesman is titled, ‘A male rape charity has had its funding slashed to zero. Where are all the outraged men?’ The charity is Survivors UK. We linked to the story three weeks ago – here – and made the comment that Boris Johnson, London mayor, should hang his head in shame.

Ms Eric-Udorie writes:

I am outraged and we all should be. Survivors UK run a vital service for men who have been affected by sexual abuse and if it shuts, this will affect countless men in London. But perhaps what makes me angrier is that so few men and men’s rights activists (more commonly known as MRAs online) have condemned this.

What she fails to mention, of course, is that feminists hoover up funding for female victims, leaving nothing for male victims. They are professionals, and they run industries. It’s true for male domestic violence victims, it’s true for male rape victims. In the case of the former, it’s been true for 40+ years.

It’s truly sad to read the output of a brainwashed teenager, as here:

Yes, there are issues that predominantly affect men like homelessness and suicide, but surely it’s a no brainer that both men and women suffer in our patriarchal society – one that prizes masculinity and expects only three things of women: to get married, get fucked and have babies.

She writes:

It seems that if men and MRAs aren’t writing, and let’s be honest, complete bullshit, they are attacking women. Men’s rights activist and founder of Justice for Men and Boys (and the women who love them), Mike Buchanan, has accused the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, Laura Bates, of lying because she talks about sexism and the disproportionate effects it has on women compared to men. He also gives out “awards” to feminists for “lying”.

No, I didn’t accuse Laura Bates ‘of lying because she talks about sexism… compared to men.’ I accused her of lying (twice) on account of her having demonstrably lied (twice). Bates has never denied the accusations. We give awards to feminists for lying, not for “lying”. (What on earth were the inverted commas supposed to indicate?)

Not one feminist who’s ever won our ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ has ever denied she’d lied. Many were informed in advance of being presented with ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ awards that they could retract their lies, but not one took the opportunity to do so. No feminists’ apologists have ever shown the statements we challenge to be truthful. It really is as black and white as that.

Feminists simply aren’t used to be being exposed publicly as liars – the mainstream media never expose them as such – so they have no defence against our public challenges, other than to misrepresent us (as in the case of Ms Eric-Udorie’s piece.)

Relentless and shameless lying is a thread that runs through feminist narratives. Feminists must recognise they’ve built a house of cards over decades. If just one card is pulled away, the whole edifice might fall. That is why feminists never admit lying, regardless of the weight of evidence that they have.

Caroline Criado-Perez admitted to Philip Schofield on the ITV programme This Morning that she’d won the award because she’d lied. She laughed after admitting this, and shortly afterwards lied again, winning her third award – a video of the 20 minutes of our discussion is here.

An updated list of our ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award winners is here.

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.

    … which is the sort of thing a troubled and immature twelve year old boy might write, with the possibility of growing out of it with treatment and maturity, although June will never do so (who can doubt that she’s sure to succeed in some publicly funded capacity or another). What is really worrying about the Junes of this world is that some people advocate giving them a vote.

    Cringe. Just cringe. For a 16 year old I hope her mother (obviously an offfspring of a single mother’s psychosis) washes her mouth out with soap. What are these comicbooks thinking when allowimg this drivel to dilute – what is left – of their brand image?

    Interstingly though I note that the fact of male victimisation in this and issues such as suicide and homelessness are accepted . A few years ago this would not have been the case. It is not for nothing the feminist policy of “n0 platform” or assertions that science is “mansplaining” . For they are rightly afraid of facts and debate. So keep on with the facts.

  4. This is just a just a rather poor but very transparent attempt to mount an attack on the MRHA movement, and particularly Paul Elam, using an important issue as a specious cover. Gormless is over rating it. It’s pathetic really. Just so much infantile film flam, worthy of nothing but ignoring it.
