‘The Only Way is Essex’ and ManKind

Hopefully you’d be outraged (as I would, and every MHRA I know) if a man said the following with respect to his ex-girlfriend:

In Dubai, we had a massive row and I pushed her and I slapped her around the face. It was only a slap. Everyone slaps their girlfriend once, when she deserves it.

My thanks to KR for pointing me towards a piece in today’s Independent in which Mark Brooks, chairman of the ManKind charity http://mankind.org.uk, rightly took exception to a piece on The Only Way is Essex:

ManKind provides support to male victims of domestic abuse and violence. If you’d like to make a donation to this very worthwhile charity, you can do so through this link:

Thank you.

 

 

 

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.
