An article about ‘The Red Pill’ in The Daily Telegraph (Australian Edition)

Our thanks to Tom for this. The piece was written by a smug male columnist, a former ‘student socialist’. An extract:

Personally, I’m not really into the whole men’s rights thing. [That’s it, ignore men’s rights, they’ll go away. Oops, they already have, and you’re too stupid to have noticed.]

Most “advocates” strike me as a little bit sad and a little bit obsessive. [I imagine the same could have been said about “advocates” for an end to slavery, improved rights for black people in the US, an end to apartheid in South Africa…]

A few are just plain creepy. [This is journalism of the lowest order. Would he not be more at home at the Australian edition of The Guardian?]

Still, from what I gleaned in the trailer — which of course I also never would have seen had the film not been banned — they didn’t seem like towering tyrants of patriarchal oppression.

Maybe that’s what upset the censors so much. [Such an absurd comment could only have been made by an ignorant person who hasn’t seen the film. What upset the feminist censors so much was that the film was made by a former feminist who stopped being a feminist when she engaged with men’s rights advocates, and realised that what they had to say about gender matters was demonstrably true, and compelling – and that feminist narratives are all a tissue of lies.]

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

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.

  1. Just added a review at IMDB.com (It may take a while to appear on the site) It reads as follows

    Fantastic – An enjoyable journey of consciousness

    I’ve just watched this at the National Men’s Working Forum. Cassie Jays interviews a number of men’s rights activists, such as Paul Elam (founder of A Voice For Men), Warren Farrell (author of the Myth of Male Power) and others and feminists such as Big Red (A feminist involved in stopping a talk by Janice Fiamengo at the University of Toronto) and Katherine Spillar (Executive Editor of Ms. Magazine). There is talk about men’s issues like the lack of men’s domestic violence shelters, paternity fraud and workplace and combat deaths. This is clearly a journey of consciousness for Cassie Jaye. She talks to men and even women, like Karen Straughan (GirlWritesWhat on YouTube) and Erin Pizzey (Opened the world’s first domestic violence shelter in London in 1971) who set out what men’s issues are. She talks to feminists who say that feminism already includes men’s rights. We can see that Cassie Jaye has trouble with this. She really wants to say that the feminists are right; being a self declared feminist herself. She struggles with this, as what the men’s rights activists say seems to make sense but Cassie has cognitive dissonance. She clearly has two opposing ideas in her mind and one of them must be wrong. This is her journey and thoroughly enjoyable it is. I won’t reveal the ending but it is worthwhile. I cannot recommend this film too highly. Anyone who thinks there’s something wrong between men and women these days should watch it. Enjoy.
