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

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.

New York considering legalizing late-term abortions, allowing abortion up to birth

Appalling. The end of the piece:

The abortion rate already is extremely high in New York. In 2012, 101,674 of New York’s children lost their lives to induced abortion – the highest abortion rate in the nation, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The statistics are even more startling in New York City. Approximately 40 percent of pregnancies in New York City end in abortion. Among African Americans in New York City, that number climbs to 60 percent, according to city health department data.

Our position on abortion is outlined in our 2015 general election manifesto (pp. 5,6).

Beverley Tillyer, 40, jailed for having sex with three 14-year-old schoolboys

Our thanks to Bryn for this, concerning a woman’s sexual assaults on three 14-year-old boys in 2008. Once again we have a female sex offender described in a headline as ‘Mum’. Extracts from the piece, illustrating the gender double standard. How many of these would we see in the account of a trial, if the alleged sex offender were a man?

Dave Mackay, prosecuting, said the offending took place during 2008 when she was in her early 30s and ran a “chaotic household”…

The youngsters did not make a complaint at the time of the offending…

After being arrested Tillyer initially denied carrying out any abuse and claimed she had been raped by the boys…

Kate Bissett, mitigating, said Tillyer suffered from anxiety and a personality disorder. She said: “She was seeking intimacy rather than seeking to exploit them for sexual gratification.” [J4MB: Well, that’s all right, then.]

Glen Jankowski is a blithering idiot

Our thanks to Emily for this. It’s a tweet from Glen Jankowski, Critical psychology lecturer at Leeds Beckett. He claims a new ‘male psychology’ section of the BPS (British Psychology Society) won’t help men or women. A taster:

If the aim of the section is to focus on bringing together men and masculinities researchers, [hopefully not, since the latter are invariably feminists] then the Section must look at what Raewyn Connell calls ‘the patriarchal dividend’. [Why must it, given that feminist patriarchy theory has no basis in reality?] That is how men as a class of people are disproportionately advantaged…

You get the drift. A tip of the hat to Belinda Brown for her response to Jankowski’s tweet.

Raewyn Connell – the lesbian feminist taxpayer-funded parasite who Jankowski imperiously asserts the BPS Men’s Section ‘must’ look to for guidance – is a 73-year-old Australian sociologist. From her website:

I have been an interested observer of masculinities all my life, but began to think of this as a researchable issue in the late 1970s. At that time, anyone interested in power structures could see that the feminist challenge to patriarchy must mean changes in the lives of men.

The 99 Club offers £500 bursaries for ‘comedians’ with vaginas

Our thanks to James for this. An extract:

We know that there will be many more talented female comics out there who we look forward to working with in future. [What’s stopped you in the past?]

We also know that it’s important to take concrete steps to support female performers. [Why is it important? Because so few of them are funny, they need ‘support’?]

Earlier this year we were official partners of the UN Women’s HeforShe gender equality campaign.

Sky News: discussion on “boys’ jobs and girls’ jobs” with Nichi Hodgson, journalist, former dominatrix

Two weeks ago I was in a discussion on Sky News, following a comment by Theresa May during an interview (with her husband) that there exist “boys’ jobs and girls’ jobs” around the house. Needless to say, feminists took offence, so it became a matter of pressing concern to the mainstream media. Sky News invited me at short notice to debate the issue with a feminist, assuring me I’d be informed beforehand who she was, so I could research her.

As I commonly find also with the BBC, I wasn’t informed of the identity of the feminist in advance. She turned out to be Nichi Hodgson, journalist – for the Guardian, among others – and former part-time dominatrix. Kay Burley was in her strident feminist mode, as I’d experienced during a previous interview with her – here (video, 14:49). At one point Burley stated imperiously that I had ‘misspoken’ by referring to men as a class – “You don’t mean that”. She also went in for her trademark forced hysterical laughter, at one or two points.

Sky were unable to get an Outside Broadcast vehicle to Bedford in time, so I contributed from home via Skype – I’ve since bought a HD Logitech webcam – and I was able to see neither Burley nor Hodgson. Hodgson was in a studio, presumably that of Sky News, and I’d wager she had sight of both Burley and myself. She derailed the discussion by disputing my contention that men do more paid employment than women.

I’m still trying to get copyright clearance from Sky to put the piece on our YouTube channel, in order to avoid the risk of a copyright strike. In the meantime the piece is available through others, such as here (video, 10:58), where it’s had 32,000+ views already.
