Coalition of Men & Boys (2009) v. Men & Boys Coalition (2016)

Our thanks to Claire for pointing us to this. It relates to the first report from the Coalition of Men & Boys, in 2009. The feminist-compliant nature of the organization is quickly apparent (obviously feminist organizations highlighted in bold text):

Who are COMAB?

The Coalition on Men and Boys is a new UK organisation that aims to:

  • explore the problems that men and boys face and the problems they create
  • harness the huge potential that men and boys have to contribute to the well-being of society.
  • identify how policy and practice – in relation to issues such as work, fatherhood, education, health, and violence – can engage more effectively with men and boys in the UK.

Current members are Action for Children, Bradford University’s Research Unit on Men and Masculinities, the Fatherhood Institute, the Men’s Health Forum, Relate, Respect (the national association for domestic violence perpetrator programmes), and the White Ribbon Campaign.

COMAB must have sunk without trace some time ago, I hadn’t previously heard of them. We can expect the Men and Boys Coalition to sink without trace too, given its feminist ideological orientation. A virtual ‘coalition’ with nobody admitting to leadership, built on sand.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

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.

  • A little unfair Mike.

    Many of those in COMB are the most despicable organisations in the U.K. who have a track record of doing incredibly harmful things to men and boys. It doesn’t get any worse than White Ribbon or “Respect”. Furthermore, there’s not a single remotely credible person involved.

    To me the new coalition looks to be more of a mixed bag. Mankind are involved for a start and there can be some merit in working with those with different views at certain times (though this particular occasion probably isn’t one of those times).

      ” some merit in working with those with different views..”. I would add a caveat to that. Namely, it’s ok to do so when the other side are open to differing views as well. Feminists seem to be narrow minded and demonstrate their hate filled ideology at near enough every turn.
