We predict the next pathetic feminist victory: ‘Lose the Lads’ Mags’

Possibly because they’re starting to lose the gender war, and they can’t stop the rising tide of anti-feminist narratives, feminists are utterly obsessed in winning minor battles (of their own making) in a desperate – yet futile – effort to keep their spirits up. They recently crowed about their successful campaign to shame the Bank of England into putting another woman on British banknotes (Jane Austen will appear on £10 notes from 2017). A fine example of that age-old strategy, ‘winning through whining’. A few lines from feminist icon Jane Austen, from Oxford Book of Quotations:

How horrible it is to have so many people killed! And what a blessing that one cares for none of them! (Letter to Cassandra Austen, 31 May 1811, after the Battle of Albuera, 16 May 1811. ‘Jane Austen’s Letters’ – 1952)

Their next pathetic victory will, we predict, be the ‘Lose the Lads’ Mags’ campaign. They make the utterly absurd claim that lads’ mags – Loaded, Nuts, Zoo etc. – encourage sexist attitudes towards women, and in turn violence against them. Predictably, The Everyday Whining Project is whining about this issue. Everyday.

The feminazis have even threatened to mount legal challenges against the retailers of these magazines, saying the images on the front of them assault the ‘sensibilities’ of female shop workers, who are clearly all fragile hothouse orchids. They’re unconcerned, of course, about the ‘sensibilities’ of male shop workers with respect to images of tall/handsome/well-built/rich men on the front covers of romance novels… maybe they should be banned?

A story about the Co-op’s response to the feminazis’ campaign, on the BBC website today:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23486027

The Co-op, along with a number other retailers, is asking the magazines’ publishers to put the magazines in ‘modesty bags’ which hide the front covers – an understandable (if regrettable) response to angry feminazis’ demands. Of particular interest to me, then, was a typical feminazi response to this proposal:

But campaign group Lose the Lads’ Mags said the Co-op was not going far enough.

Spokeswoman Sophie Bennett said: “The so-called ‘modesty bags’ they are demanding from publishers are designed to allow the Co-operative to continue profiting from sexist, harmful lads’ mags – but just a bit more discreetly.”

This campaign – which will be successful, at least with respect to some retailers – has nothing to do with sexist attitudes towards women. It has everything to do with shaming men for finding attractive women, especially attractive young women, attractive (i.e. objectification). Is that their problem? A rhetorical question, of course.

It’s heartening to see feminazis spending their time and energy on these silly little battles. In the meantime, we can devote our time and energy to winning the big battles, and ultimately the war. I assume a few feminazis have the intelligence to realise they’re inevitably going to lose the war, however much they screech, manipulate, lie and whine. And when they do lose the war, it will be a fine day for all men and boys, and the vast majority of women and girls.

The future’s bright. The future’s non-feminist.

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.

  • Feminists are worse than the catholic church when it comes to sexual repression of males, anytime a man finds a woman attractive it’s ‘objectification’ this ‘rape culture’ that, but when a book about BDSM becomes one of the best selling book ever(50 shades) no feminists outrage, why? because that book targets women and women find it sexually appealing therefore nothing wrong with it. If it’s targeted at men it’s bad as demonstrated by feminists continual efforts to ban porn and prostitution, and their endless whining about women in video games and movies. It’s quite Ironic that the Victorian era is supposedly the era that women were most oppressed in according to their precious ‘patriarchy’ theory yet feminists are constantly trying to enact policies of etiquette and sexual repression more severe than anything we’ve seen in history.

    • Good points. Feminazis won’t need to go too far down this line of reasoning, before they’ll be demanding all women wear the burka…

      • Knowing feminists rather than covering up women’s bodies they’ll instead legislate that men need to wear horse blinders in public.

      • If women don’t want men to find them attractive maybe they could spend less money and time on making themselves attractive. But I doubt it’s the pretty young ones who complain. Hasn’t that always been the problem with feminists, that they’re just jealous of those more attractive than them. My father used to say that’s why they became feminists in the first place, because they failed at being a proper woman. It’s just more female jealousy and spite

    Nearly all the comments on the ‘rape threat’ article in my local paper have now been removed. Some were by women really annoyed that people waste time with things such as a banknote campaign.

    Personally, I’m happy to see women’s faces on ALL banknotes and have women overrepresented in business and politics, but let’s first see if at least half of them are willing to become binmen, postmen, road sweepers, miners and to die on the front line – not just the cushy jobs.

    Good to see mainstream media calling them out on their shit.
