Jonathan Vernon-Smith, BBC 3 Counties Radio – phone-in on MGM

I’ve just been on BBC 3 Counties Radio, discussing the case in which Mrs Justice Roberts ruled that two boys were not to be circumcised at the behest of their Muslim father (the mother was opposed to the procedure). Afterwards Jonathan Vernon-Smith discussed the matter with Dr Simon Hochhauser of Milah UK, the Jewish organization promoting male circumcision. Vernon-Smith was commendably challenging, and listeners were left in no doubt that Hochhauser was seeking to defend the indefensible.

I invite you to call in to the show – 03459 455555 – and explain your support for an end to MGM. We plan to post the programme, including the phone-in, on our Vimeo channel.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Great performance Mike, you managed to get all the key facts across whilst at the same time arguing for equality and compassion.

    i think the next step is to try to force a change in use of language in conversations by being more determined to use the term “male genital mutilation” as often as possible (or even gender neutral terminology such a “child genital mutilation”).

    • Many thanks. The last I debated with Dr Hochhauser on the same show – 19 January – I referred to MGM a lot. I think it can be useful to vary the style from time to time.
