William Collins: Invisible Dead Men

An excellent piece, prompted by yesterday’s ratification of the Istanbul Convention Bill in the House of Commons, passed by 138 votes to 1 (Philip Davies). The Bill now goes to the House of Lords for ratification, where it is certain of a similarly overwhelming vote.

A woeful article in The Independent is here. The writer of the piece – in which the existence of male victims of domestic violence are not recognized once, hence missing the point of Philip Davies’s actions yesterday – is an 18-year-old feminist, Yas Necati. From her blog:

Yas Necati is an eighteen year old activist who was born in, and is still being raised in, London. A passion for comic-books, feminism and changing the world means that she is, of course, a super-duper nerd! She’s SUPER proud to be a member of No More Page 3 HQ, fighting to end a long-outdated sexist institution, whilst having true “harmless fun” along the way.

Cressida Dick appointed as first female Met Police chief

Cressida Dick

Our thanks to Stuart and others for this. Key extracts:

Cressida Dick is the new Metropolitan Police Commissioner, the first woman to take charge of London’s police force.

She succeeds Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, who led the force from 2011 until announcing his retirement last year.

Ms Dick, [note, not Mrs or Miss, and there are no details of her marital status on her Wikipedia page] previously the national policing lead on counter-terrorism, said she was “thrilled and humbled”.

But her appointment was criticised by the family of Jean Charles de Menezes, who was wrongly shot dead during an operation she led in 2005.

The Brazilian electrician was killed two weeks after the 7/7 London Bombings when he was mistakenly identified as a terror suspect.

A jury later found the Met had broken health and safety laws, but found there was “no personal culpability for Commander Cressida Dick”. [How can that be? Was it just the customary gynocentric failure to hold women accountable for their failures, or the failures of those under their control?]…

Her appointment means that for the first time all three top policing jobs in the UK are held by women: the Met commissioner, the head of the National Crime Agency and the president of the National Police Chief’s Council.

Ms Dick’s statement said: “This is a great responsibility and an amazing opportunity.

“I’m looking forward immensely to protecting and serving the people of London and working again with the fabulous women and men [my emphasis] of the Met.

The head of the Crown Prosecution Service, the Justice secretary, the Home secretary, and the holders of all three top policing jobs in the UK are feminists. Basically, that’s the criminal justice system in feminist hands. Things are going to get even worse for men in the UK. Much worse.

Karen Straughan: Coming out…

It would greatly help anti-feminist campaigners if more anti-feminists publicly self-identified as such, away from their keyboards. We understand that for some of them it could have adverse professional consequences, but for many (most?) it wouldn’t. Individuals anti-feminists’ aversion to potential confrontation (largely unfounded, in my experience) is surely one of the key reasons that public understanding of men’s issues, and feminism, remains so woeful (although, of course, it’s steadily improving).

Our thanks to William for pointing us to a remarkable piece (audio, 22:01) by Karen Straughan, recorded a couple of months after last year’s London conference. She expands on a point she made in her interview with Steve Brule at the conference – here (video, 36:08) – namely that more anti-feminists and men’s rights advocates need to ‘come out’, as she did, with some trepidation. Her accounts of that decision, and the lack of adverse consequences for her, are inspiring. My admiration for Karen, already deep, just increases year after year. Her importance to the MRM over the years, and to this day, could scarcely be exaggerated.

At 12:40:

You know, with every person who comes out unashamedly, unabashedly, unapologetically, the road for everyone else becomes smoother and less steep.

Towards the end of the piece Karen refers to an appeal for the ‘Honey Badger House’. The appeal is now closed, but it had a target of CAND49,900 to reach by 20.9.16, and reached CAND54,717.

Karen Straughan’s interview at the London conference

I much enjoyed Steve Brule’s interview with Karen Straughan at the London conferencehere (video, 36:08). I’m posting it now, because someone asked me if I had a link to it, I assumed we’d already posted one, but it seems we hadn’t. The person responsible will have to go…

You can find other London conference videos – and a great deal more besides – at Studio Brule. I’m about to watch 2016 Highlights from Studio Brule (video, 34:15).
