An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues (2016), which we hosted in association 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 ever more gender privileging 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 too – 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.

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.

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

Liz Jones: Women NEED diamond rings – it makes hitting men easier

Our thanks to Steve for this. Liz Jones admitted in an article published in 2011 that she’d tried (but failed) to become pregnant by using the contents of both her ex-husbands’ used condoms.

For a little light relief, we recommend Why engagement rings are a scam (video, 3:53).

The problem with democracy

Yesterday we posted a link to a piece on the Electoral Reform Society’s calculation that 22 million votes at the recent general election were irrelevant, because of the dreadful ‘first past the post’ system. V comments:

The problem with democracy is basically that groups of people who fundamentally disagree with a state’s policies cannot secede from that state. As well as that, democratically elected politicians have limited incentive for good governance as they know they will not be around forever and so there is always the temptation to spend some of the state’s capital on rewarding their supporters, in other words it encourages bad husbandry and poor governance.

In the UK’s case (and in western Europe generally) democracies are in thrall to certain favoured groups such as feminists, LGBTQ, and environmentalists. This phenomenon bears a clear relationship to the collapse of traditional (sexual) morality, and traditional religion in general.

Democracies by their nature encourage collectivist solutions, and are merely a less drastic form of totalitarianism than communism or fascism.

One can see this in the massive growth of state spending since 1900. One could say the triumph of democracy in its modern form began in 1918 with Woodrow Wilson’s declaration that he wanted to make the world safe for democracy, and in doing so, broke up the essentially benign Austro-Hungarian Empire, symbolising the death of the monarchical principle. Democracies are now in a demonstrable state of decadence and are coming to their end.

Electoral Reform Society: “22 million votes irrelevant in the 2017 general election”

The ‘first past the post’ system is idiotic and undemocratic.

The Electoral Reform Society explain that 22 million votes were wasted at the election, and 0.0016% of voters switching their allegiance would have given the Conservatives a majority.

Jessica Wells, 22, who was speeding on her motorbike when she hit and killed Ian Rose, an 80-year-old pensioner, as he got off a bus, is spared jail

Wells, pictured, was also injured and took full responsibility for the collision when she was interviewed in hospital, the Old Bailey heard

Our thanks to William for this. Owning a vagina is a licence to kill in the UK today – to kill elderly men, anyway. Excerpts:

A motorbike rider who hit and killed a pensioner as he got off the bus when she checked to see how far over the 30mph speed limit she was has been spared jail.

Vegan chocolate maker Jessica Wells, 22, spotted a speed camera as she weaved in and out of traffic and looked down at her dashboard – which showed she was doing 44mph – in the seconds before she hit 80-year-old Ian Rose.

She had overtaken a lorry and undertaken a learner driver just moments before.

At that moment Mr Rose was getting off a bus in Eltham Road in Blackheath, south east London before Wells crashed into him…

Wells of Swaffham Road, Wendling, Derenham, Norfolk, admitted causing death by careless driving and was today given a sentence of four months imprisonment, suspended for 18 months…

Judge Philip Katz QC told Wells: ‘I accept that you have from the word go shown a considerable degree of remorse here. [J4MB: That’s clear from the photograph at the top of this piece.]

‘It’s quite clear to me you are a sympathetic and compassionate young woman. [J4MB: We don’t get it. Are such subjective and utterly irrelevant  judgments the stuff of mitigating circumstances today, at least in relation to women?]

‘You are also very conscious of the fact you have taken somebody’s life, a fact you will have to live with for the rest of your life.

‘I accept wholly that you are thoroughly remorseful about what you have done.

‘It seems to me I will cause more damage than justice requires if I sentence you to prison, because you have a vagina.’ [J4MB: We may have added a few words there, but they’re clearly implied.]

Alison Saunders: Hate crimes – online abuse ‘as serious as face-to-face’

Our thanks to Stu for this. Extracts:

Revising its guidance for prosecutors, the Crown Prosecution Service said the impact of tweeting abuse can be as “equally devastating” as shouting it…

Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders said online abuse can fuel “dangerous hostility”…

The new legal guidance and accompanying CPS public statements guide prosecutors deciding whether to charge suspects of offences motivated by hostility towards people of different races, religions, sexuality, gender and disability. [J4MB: Does this mean that only men can be charged with online abuse towards women? We know most online abuse of women is carried out by other women.]

Cases should be pursued with the same “robust and proactive approach used with offline offending”…

Hate crime is any criminal offence “which is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice”. [J4MB: It’s perfectly reasonable for people to be hostile towards feminists online, damn near obligatory. Our blogs are hostile towards feminists. We’re driven by an understanding of these odious people, not prejudice.]

The difficulty is working out where the line is drawn between that and words that are simply offensive.

Patrick Smyth questions Cassie Jaye on MGM – Norwich screening of ‘The Red Pill’, January 2017

My thanks to the supporter who’s pointed us to a link on Cassie Jaye’s website, the Q&A following one of the screenings of The Red Pill in Norwich seven months ago – here (video, 1:00:21). It’s had almost 150,000 hits.

I’m on the panel along with Cassie, Paul Elam, Erin Pizzey, Dr Randomercam, a couple of feminists, and a transgendered person. If you click on the footage at 52:24 you’ll see the indefatigable Patrick Smyth ask the final question of the Q&A. Cassie’s response is interesting – albeit frustrating to many of us, Patrick included – and she then goes on to explain why she no longer self-identifies as a feminist, which is also well worth catching.

My letter to The Spectator, in response to an absurd article by Julie Bindel on prostitution

In January 2014 Julie Bindel lied about her involvement with a website which I’d mentioned in the course of my speech during a debate at Durham University, and while she later apologized to me privately in a phone conversation, she declined to do so publicly. The story is here. She was a particularly worthy winner of our Toxic Feminist of the Month award.

Bindel’s article The ‘sex worker’ myth is in the current edition of The Spectator, a magazine to which I’ve subscribed for some time. The article is absurd on so many levels, little more than a series of unsubstantiated anecdotes – without evidence, I’ll assume most were invented by Bindel – and rehashing of long-discredited feminist narratives. It spans two pages in the print edition, and includes one (short) paragraph on boys being prostituted, as a way to batter alleged ‘powerful men’. There is not one sentence on adult male prostitutes, because that would derail the feminist narrative in itself.

I’ve just emailed the magazine (letters@spectator.co.uk) and invite you to do likewise. The content of my email:

Sir: As a subscriber to your magazine, and the leader of Justice for Men & Boys http://j4mb.org.uk, the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts, I am regularly appalled by the amount of absurd feminist narratives you publish. But to publish an article on prostitution by Julie Bindel, one of the most odious (lesbian) radical feminists of her generation, is beyond the pale. It would not be out of place in the New Statesman.

Might I suggest a non-feminist narrative on an important gendered issue, for a change? I’d be happy to write an article for you on why non-therapeutic circumcision of male minors – Male Genital Mutilation, MGM – is still not the subject of action from the criminal justice system despite being illegal (as the infliction of Actual Bodily Harm, probably Grievous Bodily Harm) under the Offences Against the Person Act (1861). No exemptions from the law are permitted on religious or cultural grounds.

Women are statistically much safer, both physically and sexually, marrying or cohabiting with a heterosexual man rather than with a lesbian.

Our thanks to Bryn for this.
