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.

    Brilliant! I laughed out loud a lot and I like Fray Bentos pies and puddings although I haven’t had one of either for some time. One point I would make is that when asked ‘should we paint … ?’ the answer is ‘you paint it whatever you like, I’m not painting it any colour.’

    The implied statement in that ad is one of two or a combination of both:

    1) She’s too lazy to cook for him, or her cooking is inedible, and he must buy tinned food.

    2) She’s of no use to him and is just a nuisance to be swatted away like a fly (if only it were that easy).

    Years ago I saw, on TV, an Irish comedian who raised the tendency of women to say ‘we’ when they mean ‘you’, as in he. The crux of the joke was that she asked him if he’d farted and the punchline was his reply ‘no, we’ve farted.’

    Many thanks for the loud guffaws and deep chortles, and the memory of something I haven’t had for a while.
