Women’s Equality Party: update on their London Mayor election video

Four days ago we linked to an outrageously misandrous, sexist, and racist video on the Women’s Equality Party’s official website. It’s worth checking it out, even if you did before. Key stats:

– 4,081 views
– 42 upvotes
– 375 downvotes
– 128 comments, virtually all of them critical of the video

 

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.

    It is notable that many of the negative comments are not just the equivalent of booing someone but give the poster’s reasons, quoting facts and being detailed about the problems with the party and feminism in general. It isn’t enough just to resist something: it is important to know why and to be able to support your claims with information that stands up to scrutiny. Evidence-based policy making, such as J4MB and human rights organisations for men, is perhaps the biggest single difference between them and feminist dogmas, which governments worldwide are too keen to utilise.

      It is ‘enough just to resist something’. Often instinct tells one that something is wrong even when it is difficult or impossible to understand or articulate why. All that is necessary is to say no and mean it. Why is ultimately not that important.

      • Douglas M says:

        So you would support a feminist who says “I feel like I am discriminated against” and back her feelings of being discrimminated against for being a female, despite the evidence that she generally is not?

        Instinct is fine. Initial difficulty in understanding why something just feels wrong is common and understandable. But only factual investigation will reveal whether the problem is our own paranoia; or a result of lying propaganda that we have come to accept; or because there really is something to be concerned about.

        To have others follow how we feel, emotions such as anger and excitement are useful but to create a thinking following that is resistant to other blandishments or the next exciting fad, an education of facts is needed. Saying “no” is great. In many places – including serious venues such as a political meeting – knowing why you have said “no” is vital.

    If we take the view that feminism is a kind of pseudo-religious cult, then we know from those who have busted people out of such cults that the only thing that works is confronting the cult-member with undeniable facts that contradict the cult’s claims.
