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

Our thanks to John for informing us of the plight of a 12-year-old boy who doesn’t wish to be circumcised, but is being taken to the QC clinic in Coventry for the procedure to take place at 1:00 pm today. We know of this from three Reddit posts:

The organization carrying out operations is the QC Clinic, which operates in Coventry and Sheffield. We’ve archived a number of pages from their website:

Illegal male circumcision
I lead the political party Justice for Men & Boys http://j4mb.org.uk. Non-therapeutic circumcision is illegal under the Offences Against the Person Act (1861), being at least Actual Bodily Harm, and possibly Grievous Bodily Harm. I shall be travelling to your clinic in Coventry today in a bid to stop the circumcision of a 12-year-old boy who has claimed on Reddit that he is to be circumcised at 1pm today without his consent.

If you can, please join Patrick Smyth and myself in our bid to stop this circumcision. We plan to arrive at the clinic well before 12:00, and will be bringing placards and leaflets, as well as wearing a bodycam. I’ll also do what I can to alert the local media in Coventry. Please call me (07967 026163) if you’ll be joining us. Thanks.

A message from the ladies at… ahem… Bush Hall

One of the venues we approached as a potential venue for ICMI18 was Bush Hall, which turns out to be an appropriate name. They sent me this email:

Thank you for enquiring to hire Bush Hall via <name redacted>.

I’m afraid our license doesn’t permit us to host any religious or political events.

Even if we could we wouldn’t. As a primarily female run company, researching what your party stands for has shocked us to say the least. [J4MB: Standing up for the human rights of men and boys… yes, shocking.] We know that the owners would morally oppose allowing you to hire Bush Hall as a platform to promote anti-feminism. [J4MB: They’d oppose the hire of the venue to people who tell the truth about feminism, namely that it’s an ideology seeking to relentless increase female privilege, and male disadvantage? Of course. Cue moral outrage.]

I hope you find your perfect venue because it sure as hell isn’t here.

Kindest regards,

Betsy – Gormless Feminist Of The Month
Sophie – Toxic Feminist Of The Month

BETSY HARLEY
MUSIC & EVENTS COORDINATOR

Let’s try a gender switch on one of those paragraphs, and imagine another venue had a hire enquiry from the Women’s Equality Party, and responded with this:
