An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues (2016), which we co-hosted with A Voice for Men, we invited people concerned about the assaults on men’s and boys’ human rights to become party members. Subscriptions from party members (and others) have since become the financial lifeblood of our political party.

Nobody connected with the party has ever drawn any personal income from party subscriptions and donations, and we don’t expect that to change. If it does change, we shall make a public announcement to that effect, and contact all party members, asking if they wish to continue with their subscriptions.

When J4MB was launched in February 2013, we had no basis for forecasting how well, if at all, we would be received by the general public. At that time the prevailing public conviction was that feminists pursue gender equality, in stark contrast to what was demonstrably true, and remains so.

Only a small minority of women (9% in the UK, according to the Fawcett Society) self-identify as feminists. Feminists seek gender supremacy, regardless of the impact on men, women, boys, girls, families, public institutions, and wider society. They are driven by misandry (the hatred of men). If anyone should doubt the truth of these assertions, we invite them to read our 2015 general election manifesto in which we explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, almost always to privilege women and/or girls. There are no areas in which the state assaults the human rights of women and/or girls specifically.

The 20 areas are as follows. The human rights of females – including the unborn – are assaulted in three areas, in bold text:

Abortion

Foetal alcohol syndrome

Genital mutilation

Fatherlessness, restoring strong families

Education

Employment

Access to children after family breakdowns

Domestic violence

Sexual abuse

Armed Forces veterans’ mental health issues

Homelessness

Suicide

Criminal justice system

Paternity fraud

Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders

Divorce

Healthcare provision

Political representation

State interference in director appointments

Expectation of retirement years

The assaults on men and boys are often led or enabled by feminists in influential positions e.g. Theresa May MP (Prime Minister, formerly Home Secretary) and Alison Saunders (Director of Public Prosecutions). Most of the assaults, however, are led by men – often at the behest of feminists – with no concern for the wellbeing of men and boys as a class.

J4MB is the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. We’re also the only anti-feminist political party in the English-speaking world. We continue to be wholly reliant on party members and donors to cover the party’s costs.

Supporters (including donors) tell us we can be proud of what we’ve achieved in the past four years. Donors have sent sums ranging from £1 to £2,000. We’ve had over 100 appearances on mainstream television and radio – here. Countless newspaper, magazine, and blog pieces have been written about us. The tone of the reporting has sometimes been challenging and antagonistic, which we expected, but we’ve been delighted by the interest we have triggered in some of the most unlikely people. We can be sure that we’ve broken the blanket belief that men’s and boys’ issues are either non-existent, or unimportant. The comments streams following online articles have been very supportive of J4MB and what we’re seeking to achieve.

Our long-term strategy is to challenge the party in power (or parties, in the event of a coalition) because only they have the power to reverse anti-male legislation and policy directions.

We’re working towards the 2020 general election, in which we’ll field candidates in Conservatives marginal seats. In coalition with the Liberal Democrats from 2010, and in sole power from 2015, the Conservatives have been no less anti-male than the Labour party, in some areas going even further than the Labour administrations of 1997-2010.

We’re going to raise our game in a number of areas, which will require a stronger financial base. We wish to increase our membership base in order to meet increasing campaigning costs, and to help build a ‘war chest’ for the 2020 general election.

One popular and highly visible way of supporting our party is to order a polo shirt, T-shirt, or sweatshirt, from the J4MB store. Shirts are available in men’s and women’s designs, in a wide variety of colours and sizes, in cotton or polycotton, and several designs are available. J4MB receives a commission of £2.50 for each shirt sold.

We invite you to become a party member. It’s the most efficient way to demonstrate your support of our work, reducing the need for the periodic appeals upon which we relied in the past. It also frees up our time for political campaigning, which would otherwise be spent on fundraising.

We’ve established a range of membership grades, ranging from monthly sums of £5.00 (16 pence per day) to £100.00 (£3.28 per day):

Membership grade                  Monthly donation                   

Bronze                                                        £5.00

Silver                                                          £10.00

Gold                                                            £25.00

Platinum                                                    £50.00

Diamond                                                    £100.00

Members will receive a signed membership certificate, one of the A3 leaflets we were distributing during the 2015 general election – the window poster element is here – and two individually numbered blue silicone wristbands.

We’d prefer you set up a Standing Order payable directly into the J4MB account, thereby ensuring the full sum of your donations go to J4MB. Our account details:

Account name: Justice for Men & Boys

Sort code: 309054

Account number: 54880968

IBAN: GB08LOYD30905454880968

BIC: LOYDGB21090

Monthly donations can be set up through PayPal, although (small) commissions are taken from donations made that way:

If you want to put in place a regular donation of another amount, we would of course be deeply grateful.

Please email me mike@j4mb.org.uk with the membership grade you’ve settled on, the name you’d like printed on your membership certificate, and your address. Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

Mike Buchanan

The second International Conference on Men’s Issues (London) was a resounding success

10 July 2016 - group shot

The conference finished yesterday, and the overwhelming consensus was that it had been a resounding success. 200 people attended, from 20 countries. All 20 presentations – five of them by women, one by Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley) – were well received, and the attendees greatly enjoyed the social side of the event as well.

Videos of the presentations are on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

Baroness Hale, sole female Justice (of 11) in the Supreme Court since its inception in 2009, “home maker as well as a judge”, appointed first female president of the court

From the BBC, a predictable propaganda piece.

We already have a feminist prime minister – David Cameron was the previous one – a feminist Home Secretary (Amber Rudd), and a feminist head of the CPS (Alison Saunders). Now the most senior judge in the land is Baroness Hale, a woman who has spent much of the last eight years wittering on about the ‘need’ for more diversity in the judiciary – in plain English, the ‘need’ for more women, regardless of merit, and the proportions of capable men and women wishing to pursue such careers. As always, the barriers to entry have been lowered to enable this direction of travel, including appointing legal academics (most of whom are female) as judges.

The biographies of the Supreme Court Justices are here. The idea that Lady Hale might objectively be the best candidate (among 11) for the position of president is laughable. A man with the same background wouldn’t have had a hope of becoming a Supreme Court Justice in the first place. From her biography:

A home maker as well as a judge, she thoroughly enjoyed helping the artists and architects create a new home for The Supreme Court.

Well, that’s nice. A feminist part-timer with an interest in interior decoration now heads the highest court in the land. What could possibly go wrong?

Joanna Williams: Who cares about the BBC gender pay gap?

With a long ‘To do’ list after being out of the country for a few days, I’m disinclined to comment at length on the feminist-engineered fiasco that is the ‘BBC gender pay gap’ – all the journalists writing about the matter appear to be women, isn’t that sexist? – but I note that 60% of the people who have moved into the £150,000+ salary band at the BBC over the past four years have been women. Nobody is claiming that individual merit played a part in that policy direction. They no longer need to do so, people have become brainwashed into believing that inequalities of outcomes reflect inequalities of opportunities.

Meanwhile Lord Hall of Birkenhead, the BBC director-general, says there is ‘more to do’ on tackling the gender pay gap. Of course Lord Hall couldn’t have become director-general of the BBC without the approval of feminist politicians and spineless male MPs – all male MPs are spineless on gender matters, with the exception of Philip Davies – but the slippery slope of gender politics always starts from the acceptance that there’s a ‘problem’ that requires a ‘solution’. And it remains generally true even today that men provide the ‘solution’, however anti-meritocratic and destructive it is.

Hall pledged to close the gender pay gap by 2020, just three years away. Doubtless he’ll do it in part by diverting money away from programme-making to pay women yet more. Increasingly poor programmes, combined with ever more repeats, will hopefully accelerate the BBC’s journey to its end as a licence fee payer funded propaganda machine.

At least one article about the BBC fiasco is worth reading, a piece by Joanna Williams, education editor of Spiked, Who cares about the BBC gender pay gap?. I note from a line at the end of the article that she’s the authoress of a book due to be published in September, Women vs Feminism: Why We All Need Liberating from the Gender Wars. Amazon is currently featuring two reviews:

“For those of us who’ve been involved in fighting for women’s liberation for years, it has been tragic to watch contemporary feminism become the enemy of freedom. Do not despair. Joanna Williams’s wonderful book not only uses erudition, philosophy and polemics to explain how on earth this betrayal has happened but more importantly it is a bravura clarion call urging women to throw off the shackles of hapless victimhood and instead take control of their destiny. I loved every word.”

– Claire Fox, Director, Institute of Ideas

Women vs Feminism is a superb exposé of today’s victim feminism. It tells the story of how a once valiant movement for equality and freedom [J4MB: Groan. It was never that.] devolved into a male-bashing grievance-fest. This meticulously researched book will drive the gender activists crazy–and delight those who care about truth, rules of evidence, and genuine liberation.”

– Christina Hoff Sommers, Author of Who Stole Feminism?

You can pre-order the book from Amazon UK here.

How many Men’s Rights Advocates (MRAs) does it take to change a light bulb?

Our thanks to an Australian MRA for this:

How many MRAs does it take to change a light bulb?

Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to hold back the feminist protesters who are complaining there aren’t enough women in light bulb changing.

Andrew Kerslake, sexual abuse victim, was handed £175,000 compensation. Shameless ex-wife (who has a new partner) claimed it was a ‘marital asset’. Judge ordered him to give her £100,000 as part of the divorce settlement.

Our thanks to Mike P for this. An excerpt:

Mrs Tippett was studying for a humanities degree at university and Mr Kerslake, who walks with crutches after hurting his back in a fall, was raising their four children.

Their 19-year marriage ended six years ago and Mr Kerslake has become estranged from his children, aged between seven and 22. [J4MB: He ‘has become estranged’ from his four children – between one and 16 when the marriage ended, if we read that sentence correctly – who he was raising until just six years ago. Hmm, might his ex-wife bear some responsibility for that?] He lives alone in a housing association bungalow in Llanharan, a village near Bridgend in south Wales, while Mrs Tippett works part-time in a church breakfast club.

Nicky Morgan beats pro-Brexit MP to chair of Treasury committee

Depressing news. The woeful woman was fired by Theresa May when she was Education Secretary and Minister for Women & Equalities, and in the past week or two has spoken of the need to do something about the low number of women in senior positions in the Financial Services sector. Because with all the threats to the economy, that’s what the chair of the Treasury committee should be focusing on.
