Janice Turner: Don’t blame us for your problems, chaps

As a minor story which hints at the depth of the feminist infiltration of the mainstream media, this one takes some beating.

No British newspapers are critical of feminism as an ideology, their rare (mild) criticisms relate to individual feminists in (rare) particular circumstances. In the British newspaper titles that were once right-of-centre, The Telegraph is particularly woeful in its adoption of feminist narratives – the title publishes pieces penned by feminists such as Glen Poole – but The Times, to which I subscribe, is not much better. It’s given employment to the odious Caitlin Moron for many years.

A feminist columnist at The Times who reliably makes my teeth grate is Janice Turner. Yesterday’s edition of the paper included her piece titled, “Don’t blame us for your problems, chaps.” It should more accurately have been titled, “Feminists don’t give a damn about male disadvantage and suffering, and never will.” It’s available here, you’ll need to register (no charge) to read it in full. The piece contains a number of long-discredited feminist lies, one being (in bold):

He (Philip Davies MP) argues that there are fewer female prisoners – 4,000 compared with 80,000 men – because the justice system is more lenient to women. That is not even true: women are twice as likely to be imprisoned for a first offence. [my emphasis]

Another lie:

Let’s include male victims of domestic violence, (under the remit of a minister for men) but also ask why the vast majority of abusers are men. [my emphasis]

She’s clearly bidding to become a Lying Feminist of the Month. An example of her anti-male perspective:

Boys’ underachievement may, to some extent, be the fault of a feminised education system, which doesn’t offer enough male teachers or physical exercise so that boys can master their fizzing testosterone and sit still. Yet it is also about father who leave, whose sons then struggle to find male identity in feckless gangs. [my emphasis]

J4MB then has a mention, albeit being disingenuously described as a ‘forum’ rather than a political party:

The men’s rights lobby will not look to itself. Anger is cheap: thought is hard. More thrilling to rail against feminism on hate sites such as Breitbart, which scorns rape victims as liars, or forums such as Justice for Men & Boys, at whose conference Philip Davies spoke, which runs articles like The Exquisite Beauty of Patriarchy and Gormless Woman of the Month.

I tweeted Janice Turner (@VICTORIAPECKHAM) last night, offering to correct the errors in her piece. Predictably, rather than wishing to learn where she’s made errors, she’s blocked me from her Twitter account. Perhaps one or two of the good followers of this blog could tweet her a link?

What sort of masochistic man could remain married to such a sexist bigot? A male feminist (mangina) of course. From Ms Turner’s Wikipedia page we learn that her husband is Ben Preston, former deputy editor of The Times, and editor of Radio Times since 2009. His father, Peter Preston, joined The Guardian in 1963, and later became its editor (1975-95).

The first blog I started was back in January 2012, Anti-Feminism League. In March 2012 we presented a Toady award to Ben Preston. The background to the award, and a link to his certificate, are here. The website hasn’t been updated since the launch of J4MB in February 2013.

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.

    This is what I term ‘soft propaganda’of the most greivous kind.

    Its technique is to masquerade as sensible, measured comment that no reasonable reader could object to or disagree with.

    The intended deceit is clearly flagged up in advance by the attempted disguise of the chummy use of “chaps” in the headline, which gives plenty of advance warning of its deliberate manipulation.

    Thus it has two layers of deception –

    1. The lies and
    2. The lying about the lies that make it perhaps the most shocking form of deceit, whose purpose is to cause lasting damage with a twist of the knife that obscures from any credulous reader the fact that they have been grossly misled at all.

    I too regret the passing of

    ‘The Daily Telegraph and Morning Post’ (R.I.P.)

    having been allowed to see my late fathers copy without hinderance even when young,
    I would sooner it had closed altogether than turn into this tool of deceit, misrepresentation, lies and calumny.

    I am sort of glad that the Telegraph articles are mainly premium pay to read artices. It must mean that less people will get infected with the feminist lies and that overall the traffic to the site will be drastically reduced. Eventually the advertisers will reduce and the Telegraph will go bust at a comparable to the Guardian.
