Alex Proud: Deluded men’s rights activists are conspiracy nutjobs – don’t believe a word they say

I can’t recall when I last read such a profoundly ridiculous and uninformed piece as this in today’s Telegraph, and I thank Russell for pointing me to it. This should give you a flavour:

…we don’t need an International Men’s Day. Why? Because, in the UK (which is one of the world’s most gender-equal countries outside Scandinavia) women earn 24pc less than men on average.

Perhaps you don’t think that’s a big deal, but I do. It tells me that women still get a raw deal compared to men.

We can assume, I think, that someone this gloriously and unconsciously stupid regularly leaves the house wearing shoes which don’t match.

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.

    The reason for the supposedly “raw deal” women get is their own lifestyle choices, in particular in terms of hours not worked and additional responsibilities not accepted.
    A woman who works as a man does is paid the same. And as we all know, those who do are in a minority.

    The voting is looking interesting – need to track where it ends up

    When they start attacking and insulting you, you know you’re doing it right.
