An invitation to become a party member

In the wake of the highly successful International Conference on Men’s Issues (2016), which we co-hosted 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 gender supremacy, 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 – 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.

Our long-term strategy is to challenge the party in power (or parties, in the event of a coalition) because only they have the power to reverse anti-male legislation and policy directions.

We’re working towards the 2020 general election, in which we’ll field candidates in Conservatives marginal seats. In coalition with the Liberal Democrats from 2010, and in sole power from 2015, the Conservatives have been no less anti-male than the Labour party, in some areas going even further than the Labour administrations of 1997-2010.

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, and to help build a ‘war chest’ for the 2020 general election.

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

The second International Conference on Men’s Issues (London) was a resounding success

10 July 2016 - group shot

The conference finished yesterday, and the overwhelming consensus was that it had been a resounding success. 200 people attended, from 20 countries. All 20 presentations – five of them by women, one by Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley) – were well received, and the attendees greatly enjoyed the social side of the event as well.

Videos of the presentations are on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

Feminist manipulations of the J4MB Wikipedia entry

The Wikipedia entry on J4MB is here. It’s been going since August 2016, and is under constant assault from feminist ‘editors’ including ‘The Vintage Feminist’, who are keen on removing anything not to their liking – particularly if it’s demonstrably true – and doing whatever they can to undermine us, often though omission rather than commission. Happily, somewhere there’s a sympathetic Wiki editor who keep the occasional eye on the site, adding and amending as he (or she) sees fit.

It’s possible to review the revision history of Wiki entries, and the history for the J4MB website is here. Until a few days ago, the J4MB entry included the following:

Philip Davies MP, a member of the Justice Select Committee, spoke to the conference asserting that the criminal justice system favours women’s over men’s rights. Jenny Earle, director of Prison Reform Trust’s programme for reducing women’s imprisonment in response said, “The evidence is not that women are treated more leniently. In fact they are twice as likely as men to receive a custodial sentence for a first offence, and the main offence for which women are imprisoned is theft and shoplifting”.[11]

In response, Buchanan pointed to an analysis published in a blog by Men’s Rights Advocates in the UK. The blog extrapolates data regarding sentencing, prison population and parole figures to claim that there is a gender bias in favour of women.[12]

The second of these two paragraphs has been removed in the past few days, leading Jenny Earle’s outrageous lie unchallenged. Reference [12] led to a link to a William Collins blog piece, UK Prisoners – The Genders Compared, and this quote from him: “This leads me to the following staggering conclusion. Men are subject to massive gender discrimination in the criminal justice system. If male offenders were treated in the same way as female offenders there would be only one-sixth of the number of men in prison.”

General election: Sophie Walker, Women’s Equality party leader, will challenge ‘misogynist’ Philip Davies MP

Wonderful news. This will help raise public awareness of men’s issues, and starkly expose how idiotic the Women’s Equality Party is, along with its leader Sophie Walker, twice a winner of our Lying Feminist of the Month award, in common with Sandi Toxic, party spokeswoman. Extracts from the piece in The Guardian:

She is the leader of the Women’s Equality party (WEP), a new political force committed to furthering the cause of gender equality, but which has yet to make inroads electorally.

He is a Tory MP who tried to derail a bill to protect women against violence, and told a conference hosted by an anti-feminism party that “feminist zealots really do want women to have their cake and eat it”. [Details of our conference here.]…

Walker, a journalist who became the WEP’s inaugural leader in 2015 and has been at the forefront of its campaigns for equal representation and pay in working life, said: “Philip Davies basically is a sexist misogynist who puts his own ego ahead of his constituents. His anti-equality agenda in Westminster threatens the rights and freedoms not just of women but also people with disabilities, BAME (black, Asian, and minority ethnic) and LGBT+ communities. I think that Shipley deserves an MP who will prioritise representing them and the issues that are important to their constituency, rather than using parliament as a stage to play out attention-seeking performances.”

Davies said: “I have consistently asked Sophie Walker to quote just one thing I have ever said which has asked for a woman to be treated less favourably than a man, and she hasn’t been able to find even one quote from the 12 years I have spent in parliament.

“I would very much welcome Ms Walker parachuting herself into Shipley as a candidate with her extreme politically correct agenda of positive discrimination and quotas, and am very happy to let the good people of the Shipley constituency decide who they want to represent them.”

The fundraiser to finance videos of the presentations at the third International Conference on Men’s Issues (Australia)

Several tips of the hat to Geoff, Rod, and Jonathan, as well as others, for their recent generous donations towards this fundraiser. The total raised now stands at £1,000, halfway towards the £2,000 target. Yesterday I donated £20 from my own limited funds (not J4MB funds).

With seven weeks remaining before the next International Conference on Men’s Issues, in Australia, time is rapidly running out to fund flights and other costs of Anthony Corniche, the man who did such a great job filming and editing the talks at the London conference last July – here (scroll down to 8-10 July).

Anthony will be devoting an enormous amount of time and effort to the project – post-filming editing takes up far more time and effort than the filming itself – and if his fundraiser isn’t successful, there won’t be a video record of the conference presentations. Anthony recently posted this on the website:

Everyone who has and will donate is going to get a credit on the videos when released.

The bigger the donation the bigger the credit text.

I will contact donors when in editing process around the end of June or early July.

If the fundraiser meets its target, the videos will be made available to view at no cost, on the J4MB and AVfM websites.

Please donate what you can, to help make this important project a reality. Thanks.

Terrence Popp: The cost of baby rabies

In 2011 Liz Jones, a Daily Mail columnist, write a piece in which she outlined how she’d (unsuccessfully) attempted to become pregnant by using the contents of her two ex-husbands’ used condoms.

In 2013 we posted a piece about pregnant women selling ‘positive’ pregnancy tests online. An extract:

So manipulative women have invented NON-paternity fraud, and will doubtless profit from it, whether as sellers of ‘positive’ pregnancy tests, or as the buyers, using them to manipulate men into marrying them. Shortly after they marry, many of these women will claim they’ve had a ‘spontaneous’ abortion, and in due course engineer the breakdown of the relationship and walk away with the house and half the man’s assets. Quite a payback from paying a pregnant woman $25 to urinate on a stick and post it, isn’t it?

And of course there’ll be no proof she’s been deceitful, the evidence having been destroyed. But if the man has any sense, he’ll be suspicious, and certainly not fall for the same trick again. And so the relationships between men and women become a little more difficult. Do women collectively have no sense that they’re storing up a great deal of resentment in men through such deceits, and this partly explains why more men are choosing to going their own way, with every year that passes? It would seem not.

Terrence Popp is a former US Marine, who runs the website Redonkulas.com. Nobody makes videos quite like him. On the website’s home page:

We’re going to offend you.

At Redonkulas.com, we don’t do butt-hurt. We don’t do Wet Wipes. We really don’t care if it makes you cry.

Man up. Or woman up. Whatever. Put some damn pants on, quit your sniveling, stop looking for reasons to be offended (we’ll offend you, we promise) and stop being such a sissy mouth-breathing oxygen-thieving apple-ass.

It’s all in good fun, kids. If we’re not offending you, tell us. We’ll try harder.

In 2014 he gave a memorable talk at the first International Conference on Men’s Issues, in Detroit – it’s #15 on the list of conference talk videos, here.

A couple of months ago Terrence published a video (13:38) – ‘The cost of baby rabies’ – on the subject of women tricking men into making them pregnant, for financial gain. Don’t watch it if you’re offended by occasional strong language.

“Mark Latham’s Outsiders” with Bettina Arndt and Miranda Devine

Mark Latham, Bettina Arndt, and Miranda Devine are giving presentations at ICMI17, Bettina is the keynote speaker. Their profiles on the website:

Dr. John Clapper of Tacoma, WA, mutilates the genitals of male minors. Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, Michigan, mutilates the genitals of female minors, and has therefore made global headlines. Both are AVfM “Known Genital Mutilators”.

Our thanks to Gary Costanza for this.

Things not to say to a sex worker

Our thanks to Peter for this (video, 5:37) on, of all places, BBC3 – now only available online. I was reminded of a very interesting studio discussion (video, 17:54) on Newsnight in 2014, ‘Should buying sex be illegal in the UK, as it is in Sweden, Norway and Iceland?’. The best line on prostitution came from Dr Belinda Brooks-Graham, an academic:

It’s only sex, it’s only money.

Heidelberg sock bandit strikes again

A piece in The Times, with a headline that put me in mind of The Two Ronnies. Excerpts:

German police have stepped up their search for a mugger nicknamed the sock bandit of Heidelberg who has struck twice in the university city in bizarre late-night attacks.

The man has targeted young women, in one instance waving a knife, demanding they hand over not cash or valuables but a sock from one of their feet. Police issued a photofit of a man aged between 20 and 25.

In both attacks the women were riding bicycles when the man forced them to stop. After robbing them he made off on his own mountain bike…

Police in the southwestern city told the Stuttgarter Nachrichten they did not regard the crime as “just a silly prank” but as “a serious predatory act”.

So what might be the young man’s motivation? One can only speculate, but maybe, in common with many men these days, he’s been finding he’s not getting enough socks from women? Cue feminists referring to this heinous crime as sock rape.
