Sophie Walker (leader, Women’s Equality Party): Philip Davies’s place on the equalities committee is a victory for misogyny

Our thanks to Kevin for pointing us to a silly piece in today’s Guardian, concerning Philip Davies’s appointment to the Women and Equalities Committee. An early paragraph:

His appointment has doubtless prompted much punching of the air among his other backers, an outfit calling itself Justice 4 Men and Boys that gives out monthly awards for lying, whiny and toxic [and ‘gormless’] feminists and posts articles explaining why women lie about rape. [It’s true, we do, including:

6 dangerous rape myths (Hannah Wallen)

10 reasons false rape allegations are common (Jonathan Taylor)

13 reasons women lie about being raped (Janet Bloomfield)…]

Davies – who has distanced himself from the group – recently told its conference: “Feminist zealots really do want women to have their cake and eat it.”

The final paragraph:

Responding to those who seek to divide is a tricky business. Publicity is their oxygen. But doing nothing is not an option. Telling the truth is important when others seek to spin our circumstances into a mirage of misandry. As society tenses and turns on those who are different, the real picture of equality between men and women is clear. We need clarity on the picture of equality between men and women. Philip Davies’ actions, and today’s appointment, work against finding that truth.

It’s ironic that Sophie Walker should open a sentence with, ‘Telling the truth is important…’, and end her article with, ‘Philip Davies’ actions, and today’s appointment, work against finding that truth.’

She and her party’s spokeswoman Sandi Toxic have each twice won our Lying Feminist of the Month awards.

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.

  1. Describing oneself as “anti-feminist”, is noble. Why? Because responding to those who seek to divide, feminists, is a tricky business. Publicity is their oxygen. But doing nothing is not an option. Telling the truth is important when others seek to spin our circumstances into a mirage of misogyny.

    What made me laugh in the Guardian article was ‘the vast number of men joining the WEP’. Here was me wondering if there were vast number of beta-men eager to get a pat on the head from these feminists. One of the commentators pointed out that WEP supporters seem to total 65000, Therefore, the numbers of men and women supporting WEP barely make 0.1% of the population.
    Feminist delusions, a bit like everything else they do in life.

    My Jehova’s Witness relatives speak of ‘The Truth’ when discussing what I think is a risible delusion. Truth is, to use a long disused cliché, relative and Sophie Walker’s ‘truth’, another risible delusion, is a testament to that.

    Sophie walker.. is that the truth that you espouse?
    you know the one you shout out– “Two women a week killed by their partners” in one of your recent speeches of fiction?

    for someone whom the guardian called a former Reuters journalist, you have a strange allergic reaction to the truth, or was that the reason you became a “former” journalist ?

    What she said does not matter.

    The picture is clear however, having Phillip Davies on the committee means at last we have one person on it that actually knows what equality really is and.deliberate misandry is no longer the standard yard stick.
