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.

Serena Williams orders John McEnroe to ‘respect me and my privacy’ after he said she would ‘rank about 700th on the men’s circuit’

Our thanks to Mike P for this. The end of the piece:

Williams had admitted in the past that she’d probably lose to a male champion in ten minutes or less.

When interviewed on ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ four years ago, she said: ‘For me, men’s tennis and women’s tennis are completely, almost, two separate sports.

‘If I were to to play Andy Murray, I would lose 6-0, 6-0 in five to six minutes, maybe ten minutes. No, it’s true. It’s a completely different sport.

‘The men are a lot faster and they serve harder, they hit harder. It’s just a different game. I love to play women’s tennis. I only want to play girls, because I don’t want to be embarrassed.’

What Serena Williams should be embarrassed about is earning the same prize money (e.g. at Wimbledon) as the male prize winners, whilst only playing as well as the #700 male seed. Like all her colleagues, she’s a shameless parasite on the men’s game.

French gender equality minister Marlène Schiappa: Men should be given €5,000 (£4,400) on the spot fine for sexual harassment (talking to women on their own)

Lunacy in France. An extract:

In the interview, Ms Schiappa suggested that part of the problem was male attitudes. “Men feel it’s acceptable: they’re being ‘the French lover’.”

“It’s that moment when a man is walking behind a woman, talking to her, and the woman can do nothing, because she’s alone. [J4MB: Could she not talk to the man? I know feminists are dumb, but this is ridiculous.]

Ms Schiappa expressed concern that women who were sexually assaulted blamed themselves. Only a large fine would act as a deterrent – a smaller amount would only be seen as “a bit humiliating,” she said.

Of course not only should men not speak to women on their own, their gaze should not fall upon them, unless solicited. In 2013 I suggested a solution to the ‘problem’ of men looking at women – here.

Philip Cross, major editor of J4MB Wikipedia entry: “I don’t consider any J4MB sources and claims credible”.

In recent days we’ve pointed to heavy editing of the J4MB Wikipedia page by Philip Cross. Our thanks to a supporter for pointing us to the Talk section, where editors explain and justify their actions. An extract from Philip Cross’s contributions, in the ‘2015 general election mention’ section:

Let me put it as simply as I can: Men Rape and Assault Women. These are crimes which have a low conviction rate, most of which are not even reported to the police. Now, if a self-styled mens’ rights party ignores the issue of rape, or makes excuses for rapists, as has been alleged, [J4MB: Cross repeats a false allegation] it becomes a party of mens’ licence.

In downplaying the issue of violence against half of the population, [J4MB: we don’t, but we’re a men’s rights party, so obviously we cover violence suffered by men, which other parties don’t] in fact women constitute about 52% of the population, the attitudes of such a party becomes a social and political issue.

I don’t consider any J4MB sources and claims credible, [J4MB emphasis] and no one in any reliable source would seem to do so either.

Needless to say, ‘reliable sources’ are those that present feminist narratives, and attack J4MB. So there you have it. The prime editor of the J4MB Wikipedia page in recent times is a man who doesn’t consider any of our sources and claims credible, and is deeply hostile towards us.

Mike Buchanan brings a private prosecution against Joseph Spitzer, a doctor who’s circumcised thousands of boys

Ending the non-therapeutic circumcision of male minors – Male Genital Mutilation, MGM – in the UK has been the leading campaign of J4MB over the past two years. We have considerably increased public awareness that MGM is illegal, being at least Actual Bodily Harm under the Offences Against the Person Act 1861, and probably Grievous Bodily Harm. It would require a parliamentary override for MGM to be legal, and that has never existed. No exemptions to the law in England and Wales are permissible on religious or cultural grounds.

Mike Buchanan will tomorrow present a ‘written information’ – a document outlining the details of a private prosecution, here – at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court, charging Joseph Spitzer, a prominent London-based doctor and mohel (Jewish ritual circumciser), with inflicting Actual Bodily Harm, a criminal offence under the OAPA 1861. Spitzer claims to have circumcised thousands of boys over his 35-year ‘career’, presumably most of them at just eight days of age.

Last December I confronted Dr Spitzer at his workplace – here (video, 3:00). A Voice for Men then added him to its Known Genital Mutilators directory – here.

In a press release to be emailed shortly to leading journalists, Mike Buchanan states:

Male Genital Mutilation is illegal in the UK, it’s a human rights violation under UN and EU conventions, and it’s equally as unethical as Female Genital Mutilation (Brian D Earp, University of Oxford ethicist). It results in physical and sometimes psychological harm, and it has no place in modern Britain.
