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. Monthly subscriptions from party members (and others) have since become the financial lifeblood of our political party.

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.

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 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 are reliant on party members and donors to cover the party’s costs, and nobody connected with the party draws any personal income from donations.

Supporters (including donors) tell us we can be proud of what we’ve achieved in three and a half 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 usually been challenging and often antagonistic, which we expected, but we have also been surprised by the interest we have triggered in some of the most unlikely people, and we can be sure that we have 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 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 ‘fighting fund’ for the 2020 general election.

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 will also free up valuable 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 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.

Top judge launches attack on Alison Saunders over acquittals in ‘drunk rape’ cases – but she hits back claiming he is ‘victim blaming’

Our thanks to Paul for this. The start of the article:

A judge has launched an unprecedented attack on the head of the Crown Prosecution Service over her handling of rape trials.

Judge Philip Shorrock claimed that Alison Saunders, the Director of Public Prosecutions, had less understanding of the cases than a newspaper columnist.

He said in his 40 years as a barrister and on the bench, most trials led to the alleged rapist being ‘unsurprisingly’ acquitted because both parties had been drinking or taking drugs, and there was no independent proof of what had happened.

But last night, in an extraordinary outburst, Mrs Saunders hit back and accused the judge of peddling old-fashioned views.

British Pregnancy Advisory Service: Tick tock – we need to call time on the biological clock message

Our thanks to Martin for this. The article clearly shows why ‘we’ should NOT ‘call time on the biological clock message’. The writer works for an orgaization which exists to facilitate the killing of unborn children, and campaigns for women to be allowed to kill more of them, so is presumably happy when women fail to become pregnant because they’ve left it too late, in terms of their fertility.

Martin writes:

Why don’t they just teach women they can’t have it all?

An excerpt:

The fact that teenage pregnancy is at its lowest ever level since records began is a cause for celebration. Any young woman who finds herself pregnant and who wishes to continue that pregnancy needs support – not stigma.

Young women ‘find’ themselves pregnant? Hmm, how does that happen? Following a visit by the pregnancy fairy?

If you click on the website of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, you’re immediately met with this:

Considering Abortion?
We are the UK’s leading abortion care service.

The organization should clearly be renamed the British Abortion Advisory Service.

Our position on abortion is in our 2015 general election manifesto (pp.5,6).

Tory MP Philip Davies says joining Twitter was one of the worst mistakes of his life as ‘all my 16,000 followers hate me’

A piece in The Sun, published two days ago. An excerpt:

“I am not on Facebook, but I am on Twitter. I regard going on Twitter as probably one of the worst things I have ever done in my life.

“I have about 16,000 followers, all of whom hate me.”

Mr Davies added: “It is very interesting to read what they have to say, but it all seems rather pointless.

“They can hurl as much abuse as they like – it does not bother me – but I am not entirely sure that it gets us anywhere.”

The BBC produced a short piece on the matter. An excerpt:

Philip Davies, a critic of political correctness and “zealous” feminism, who campaigns for “men’s rights,” told fellow MPs those who were not on Facebook or Twitter were “the sensible ones”.

I’m convinced journalism students are taught to put text in speech marks when they want to create the impression in readers’ minds, that the text is about something which the reader should be suspicious about. The idea that feminists might be zealots, or men should have rights! Ridiculous.

Please join me in following Philip on Twitter. You can do so here.

UKIP and J4MB now have the same number of MPs

Our thanks to David for this. Douglas Carswell, until today UKIP’s sole MP, has quit the party. Henceforth he will sit in the House of Commons as the independent MP for Clacton.

In 1991 the Anti-Federalist League was launched by Alan Sked, a historian. He stood as the prospective MP for Bath in the 1992 general election. When I stood in Ashfield in the 2015 general election, I attracted 30% more votes than Alan Sked did in 1993 .

The Anti-Federalist League was renamed the UK Independence Party in 1993. It took UKIP 24 years to have the same number of MPs today, as J4MB has managed in just four years.

Wikipedia have published an entry on J4MB over the past two years, the current one is here. There are a number of errors, probably attributable to feminist editresses, but none are of great import. One particularly attentive editress is ‘The Vintage Feminist’, as you can see from the entry’s revision history.

New J4MB polo shirt and T-shirt design: ‘This is what an anti-feminist looks like’

We’ve just added a new design (above) to the polo shirts and T-shirts available at the J4MB store. The shirts are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours, the polo shirts in 100% cotton or polycotton. We’ve had good feedback from supporters about the quality of the garments and print. The new design can be printed in either black or white.

Please let me know (mike@j4mb.org.uk) of any new designs you’d like to be made available in the J4MB store. We’ll consider putting up new designs which we consider have sales potential.

Would you like to be the next leader of the Women’s Equality Party?

Details here. The position will be for a term of five years. Good luck.

It would appear that Sophie ‘Doughnut’ Walker plans to step down. She’s won two Lying Feminist of the Month awards, as has her BBC licence payer funded colleague, Sandi Toxic.

A task for Mothers’ Day

Mothers’ Day is in two days time. Ian, our legal adviser, writes:

Task for the day:

As you go round your area, take a photo of any shop/business/pub/restaurant that is doing a special offer for Mothers’ Day.

They have a legal duty to offer something equivalent on Fathers’ Day (June 18). If they do not offer something similar, they are in breach of their legal duty to treat men and women the same, and we can threaten them with legal action.
