An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues (2016), which we hosted in association with A Voice for Men, we invited people concerned about the assaults on men’s and boys’ human rights to become party members. Subscriptions from party members (and others) have since become the financial lifeblood of our political party.

Nobody connected with the party has ever drawn any personal income from party subscriptions and donations, and we don’t expect that to change. If it does change, we shall make a public announcement to that effect, and contact all party members, asking if they wish to continue with their subscriptions.

When J4MB was launched in February 2013, we had no basis for forecasting how well, if at all, we would be received by the general public. At that time the prevailing public conviction was that feminists pursue gender equality, in stark contrast to what was demonstrably true, and remains so.

Only a small minority of women (9% in the UK, according to the Fawcett Society) self-identify as feminists. Feminists seek ever more gender privileging regardless of the impact on men, women, boys, girls, families, public institutions, and wider society. They are driven by misandry (the hatred of men). If anyone should doubt the truth of these assertions, we invite them to read our 2015 general election manifesto in which we explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state, almost always to privilege women and/or girls. There are no areas in which the state assaults the human rights of women and/or girls specifically.

The 20 areas are as follows. The human rights of females too – including the unborn – are assaulted in three areas, in bold text:

Abortion

Foetal alcohol syndrome

Genital mutilation

Fatherlessness, restoring strong families

Education

Employment

Access to children after family breakdowns

Domestic violence

Sexual abuse

Armed Forces veterans’ mental health issues

Homelessness

Suicide

Criminal justice system

Paternity fraud

Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders

Divorce

Healthcare provision

Political representation

State interference in director appointments

Expectation of retirement years

The assaults on men and boys are often led or enabled by feminists in influential positions e.g. Theresa May MP (Prime Minister, formerly Home Secretary) and Alison Saunders (Director of Public Prosecutions). Most of the assaults, however, are led by men – often at the behest of feminists – with no concern for the wellbeing of men and boys as a class.

J4MB is the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. We’re also the only anti-feminist political party in the English-speaking world. We continue to be wholly reliant on party members and donors to cover the party’s costs.

Supporters (including donors) tell us we can be proud of what we’ve achieved in the past four years. Donors have sent sums ranging from £1 to £2,000. We’ve had over 100 appearances on mainstream television and radio – here. Countless newspaper, magazine, and blog pieces have been written about us. The tone of the reporting has sometimes been challenging and antagonistic, which we expected, but we’ve been delighted by the interest we have triggered in some of the most unlikely people. We can be sure that we’ve broken the blanket belief that men’s and boys’ issues are either non-existent, or unimportant. The comments streams following online articles have been very supportive of J4MB and what we’re seeking to achieve.

We’re going to raise our game in a number of areas, which will require a stronger financial base. We wish to increase our membership base in order to meet increasing campaigning costs.

One popular and highly visible way of supporting our party is to order a polo shirt, T-shirt, or sweatshirt, from the J4MB store. Shirts are available in men’s and women’s designs, in a wide variety of colours and sizes, in cotton or polycotton, and several designs are available. J4MB receives a commission of £2.50 for each shirt sold.

We invite you to become a party member. It’s the most efficient way to demonstrate your support of our work, reducing the need for the periodic appeals upon which we relied in the past. It also frees up our time for political campaigning, which would otherwise be spent on fundraising.

We’ve established a range of membership grades, ranging from monthly sums of £5.00 (16 pence per day) to £100.00 (£3.28 per day):

Membership grade                  Monthly donation                   

Bronze                                                        £5.00

Silver                                                          £10.00

Gold                                                            £25.00

Platinum                                                    £50.00

Diamond                                                    £100.00

Members will receive a signed membership certificate, one of the A3 leaflets we were distributing during the 2015 general election – the window poster element is here – and two individually numbered blue silicone wristbands.

We’d prefer you set up a Standing Order payable directly into the J4MB account, thereby ensuring the full sum of your donations go to J4MB. Our account details:

Account name: Justice for Men & Boys

Sort code: 309054

Account number: 54880968

IBAN: GB08LOYD30905454880968

BIC: LOYDGB21090

Monthly donations can be set up through PayPal, although (small) commissions are taken from donations made that way:

If you want to put in place a regular donation of another amount, we would of course be deeply grateful.

Please email me mike@j4mb.org.uk with the membership grade you’ve settled on, the name you’d like printed on your membership certificate, and your address. Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

Mike Buchanan

Trevor Phillips: ‘My comrades on the Left flaunt their moral superiority. But many of them are the most racist and sexist of all.’

A piece prompted by Jess Phillips’s comments about left-wing sexists, spoken at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Jess Phillips is possibly the most sexist MP in parliament, so it tells you all you need to know about Trevor Phillips when he writes this:

Three cheers for Jess Phillips, one Labour MP who tells it like it is [J4MB: She invariably tells it like it ISN’T] — even if it involves exposing the sanctimonious self-righteous posturing of the trendy Left in British politics…

For the record, we’re not related. I’ve met her once. But DNA aside, I can only describe her as my No 1 soul sister.

BBC programme, tomorrow: “What happened when a primary school went gender-neutral”

Our thanks to Mike P for this. An extract:

Critics, meanwhile, claim the experiment places an unhealthy emphasis on it, at an age when children are too young to ask questions. Conservative Party councillor Mary Douglas, has labelled it “abusive” and “inappropriate,” and says: “Children in particular are very vulnerable and susceptible to what adults say. To even suggest that he or she might not be essentially male or female is potentially very harmful.”

To which Dr Javid – an A&E doctor when not presenting – responds strongly: “One, this is absolutely not about gender identity. [J4MB: Yes, it clearly is. A pathetic ‘argument by assertion’.] Two, in no way could you imagine anyone ever trying to steer children in a way that’s harmful. [J4MB: Anyone with a healthy imagination could certainly imagine that.] We’re talking about the BBC. [J4MB: Oh well, this can’t be a feminist propaganda piece, then.] I’m a Doctor. [J4MB: Ah yes. The profession that mutilates the genitals of male minors for personal financial gain. Pillars of society, one and all.] Their parents and teachers were involved. [J4MB: They had no choice.] Three, watch the programme and then if you still want to hold that view – well, then you’re daft. [J4MB: A classic SJW shaming tactic.]”

The documentary is predicated on Dr Javid’s belief [J4MB: A demonstrably mistaken belief] that boys’ and girls’ brains are almost identical. He is backed by Professor Gina Rippon, a neuroscientist at Aston University in Birmingham, who insists nurture, not nature, makes girls love dolls and boys like Lego. [J4MB: She’s a liar.]

“You start to say that if the biology is that similar, [J4MB: The biology is NOT ‘that similar’.] where do these differences come from? And there were differences,” says Dr Javid.

Brian D Earp, ethicist, University of Oxford: “Does female genital mutilation have health benefits? The problem with medicalizing morality.”

Outstanding. The 15-page PDF can be downloaded in seconds, we’ve saved it here.

Please take a minute to send Brian a message – through the link – to thank him for this important paper. He’s written numerous important papers on the ethics of MGM and FGM over the years. His University of Oxford profile:

Brian is Associate Director of the Yale-Hastings Program in Ethics and Health Policy at Yale University and Research Fellow in the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford. His work is cross-disciplinary, following training in philosophy, cognitive science, psychology, history and sociology of science and medicine, and ethics.

Brian is the recipient of both the Robert G. Crowder Prize in Psychology and the Ledyard Cogswell Award for Citizenship from Yale University, where he was elected President of the Yale Philosophy Society as an undergraduate as well as Editor-in-Chief of the Yale Philosophy Review.

He then conducted graduate research in psychological methods as a Henry Fellow of New College at the University of Oxford. While at Oxford, he completed additional coursework in the philosophy of science and philosophy of mind, which he went on to publish in peer-reviewed journals.

He also conducted graduate research in the history, philosophy, and sociology of science, technology, and medicine as a Cambridge Trust Scholar and Rausing Award recipient at Trinity College at the University of Cambridge.

He is currently a Gordon Fellow at Yale University conducting doctoral research in philosophy and psychology, having been jointly admitted to both departments. His essays have been translated into Polish, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Hebrew.

‘Imnotmrabut’ on Reddit: “Oh Hell, Mike Buchanan has created yet another WordPress blog to make publicity of events as bad as possible – International Conference on Men’s Issues (2018)”

Our thanks to George for spotting this. ‘Imnotmrabut’ is objecting to the website of ICMI18. It’s perfectly suitable for the task, and readily updateable 24/7/365 – a key requirement – as was the website for ICMI16.

The idea that more sophisticated websites would lead to greatly enhanced attendances at ICMIs is, in my view, deeply flawed. The target audiences for ICMIs are those with an interest in men’s issues, and the ICMIs soon come to their notice. What would help would be mainstream media exposure in advance, but those media are hostile to MRAs in general, or at best indifferent. Martin Daubney and Peter Lloyd (referenced in the rant) aren’t publicly hostile towards feminism and feminists, hence their mainstream media exposure.

I have a strong hunch who ‘Imnotmrabut’ is, but I’ll keep that to myself. I’d prefer that he have the courage of his convictions, and revealed his identity, as I have for many years. He’s just posted another rant on Reddit. It’s full of inaccuracies, but I have neither the time nor the will to correct them, other than to say the media were NOT banned from ICMI16 or ICMI17, and were present at both. They were banned from recording the presentations, for practical and other reasons. Those presentations (36 across the two conferences) can be found on Paul Elam’s YouTube channel, and ours.
