Belinda Brown: ‘Wolf-whistling a hate crime? What an insult to real victims of abuse.’

Following the recent ridiculous news that the female Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire has been working with the Nottingham Women’s Centre – a publicly-funded organization run by Melanie Jeffs, an odious lesbian radical feminist, winner of our April 2015 Lying Feminist of the Month award – to make misogyny a reportable hate crime, we were pleased to see an article by the lovely Belinda Brown in last Thursday’s Daily Mail. The article ends:

In this new era of draconian rules and regulations, it is considered perfectly politically correct for a woman to ogle a man’s muscular physique, while he has no right to compliment her on her figure. And who would have a scintilla of respect for a man who rushed to log a complaint against a woman merely because she’d said he looked good? Equality works both ways.

Actually, I think life is infinitely poorer and drearier for these po-faced new directives. Today, in mid-life, I would feel hugely gratified if a stranger – man or woman – told me I looked lovely. Now that I’m older, a wolf whistle would actually make my day.

It is not an insult to be found attractive, actually there is something reassuring and confidence-boosting to be appreciated for our looks.

And while we rightly strive to be women of substance, an appreciation of our appearance need not detract from that.

So I would say to all young women, as I do to my own ten-year-old daughter: accept compliments graciously, but if you are offended have to courage, not to rush off and tell tales, but to confront the person who has caused offence.

This, after all, is what empowerment means and how respect is earned.

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.

    Common sense shouldn’t need stating – but alas….

    Melanie Jeffs reminds me of that other Rad Fem, Finn McKay. They both look like prepubescent teenage boys.
    It makes me wonder whether there is some sort of hormonal dysfunction affecting their psychology.

    if wolf-whistling is a hate crime, then women have no business legislating. that simple.
