Tracey Emin, Theresa May, a mystery male celebrity, and the art of T-shirt modelling

In the last post Jonathan Wiltshire, a supporter and donor, made some very illuminating observations about the M&S ‘Leading Ladies’ ad campaign. We were surprised to see Tracey Emin, the talentless ‘artist’ who’s Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy – what times we live in! – among the women in the ad. Here’s a photograph of Ms Emin ‘modelling’ a Fawcett Society T-shirt:

In Feminism: the ugly truth there’s a short chapter titled, ‘Are some feminists (e.g. Tracey Emin) a pain in the arts?’

Theresa May managed to look altogether more fetching in the T-shirt (link below), but why on earth was she – a Conservative politician (now Home Secretary) – promoting a T-shirt, the sales of which help fund an odious militant feminist campaigning organisation?

Someone else who looked decidedly more fetching than Tracey Emin in the T-shirt was a much-loved British celebrity – a man. You have to open this:

If our tracking down these immortal images isn’t worth a donation to our campaign to fund a fourth candidate for the 2015 general election – link below – we don’t know what is.

Thank you for your support.

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.

  • I simply cannot believe a serious politician such as Ms May would wear such a ghastly shirt – what next? Tattoos to show how cool she is?
    Didn’t I recently hear her indicate she would be soon making an announcement regarding “Domestic Violence”, extending its terms to allow the gender-feminists to claim even more abused (women) to fund their ever increasing supporters at massive cost to our economy – both in terms of finance and broken relationships the run as “refuge centres” otherwise termed as “one stop divorce shops” for their ideology promoting abuse of vulnerable “victims” ??
    Perhaps this was her giving the feminist sisters some moral support whilst planning to outHarman Ms Harperson’s onsaught against UK males.
    Females in UK are far more likely to band together as a “self interest” group – and these politicians know it. Their objective is to harvest female votes en bloc whilst retaining the male ones who are far less likely to be as self-serving as the female vote.
    Sickening Picture.

    • Thanks Alan. Under the relentlessly anti-male and pro-feminist David Cameron – the most unprincipled Conservative party leader of the modern era by a country mile, in my view – the Conservatives have been following virtually all the feminist agendas of Harriet Harman and her ilk, albeit with even more focus and energy. The coalition enacted Labour’s Equality Bill (2010) soon after coming to power, virtually without change.

      The last Labour administrations (1997-2010) never formally threatened the FTSE100 with gender quotas for board directors. It took Dave’s appointment of a Labour peer, Lord Davies, to recommend how to drive up female representation on boards, to put that threat in place. 13% of newly-appointed FTSE100 directors in 2010 were women. The Davies Report (February 2011) recommended that if 25% of FTSE100 board directors were not female by 2015, the government should consider introducing legislated gender quotas. The year after the report, 2012, 55% of newly-appointed FTSE100 directors were women – virtually all of them non-executive directors, in common with the vast majority of existing FTSE100 female directors.

      And people ask why J4MB is targeting Conservative marginal in 2015. I see UKIP has a healthy lead (14%) over the Conservatives in the top 40 Tory marginals, according to Lord Ashcroft’s latest poll, published today.

    • Sorry Alan, I seem to have been riding one of my hobby horses with that last reply!

      I couldn’t agree with you more about women being more likely than to vote for their own interests rather than with an eye on the ‘big picture’. It probably explains why states keep getting bigger yet ever more dysfunctional and reliant on China etc. to prop them up through buying bonds. Numerous developed countries are bankrupt by any reasonable standards. The day of reckoning must surely come.

      DV largely finances the scourge of militant feminism in the UK (and in many other developed countries). The lack of support for male victims of DV, regardless of the huge evidence base which clearly shows DV is a generational problem, not a gendered problem, is a scandal in the UK and indeed across much of the developed world.
