The Crazy Ladies: another pathetic Pyrrhic victory

About six weeks ago we confidently predicted the Crazy Ladies would have some success with their “Lose the Lads’ Mags” campaign:

Only Caroline Criado-Perez’s “women on banknotes” campaign was more laughable.

Spiked posted a good piece recently on the “Lose the Lads’ Mags” campaign:

The real objective of the “Lose the Lads’ Mags” and similar campaigns is not, of course, to prevent a ‘culture of sexism’, or to reduce the incidence of sexual assaults of women. The prime objective – we would argue the only objective – is to raise funds for the Crazy Ladies, and by that measure alone, such campaigns are outstandingly successful. By any other measure they have no value whatsoever for women.

 

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.
