Man walks up to the main door of a courthouse. Douses himself with petrol. Lights a match. Dies. Tom Ball RIP

My thanks to a supporter for bringing this tragic story to my attention. Across the developed world the suicide rate among men is several times higher than among women (in the UK, about three and a half times higher – it’s especially high among disadvantaged men in mid-life). One can only speculate on how many men commit suicide because of their harsh treatment at the hands of the justice system. A system which is 72% financed (in the UK, at least) by men’s income taxes, and only 28% by women’s income taxes, along with the rest of the state system.

Feminists have the gall to whine about the proportion of MPs who are women, a phenomenon attributable to the small number of women wishing to enter political life. Male MPs have long danced to feminists’ tunes, and haven’t passed even one piece of legislation favouring men over women in 40+ years. A great deal of pro-female legislation has been passed over that time.

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.
