Once you realise how corrupt the mainstream media are when reporting on gender-related matters, the world can never quite seem the same again. Very often the media support gender feminist narratives not so much by what they do and say, as by what they don’t do and say.
A good example is the BBC. We’re about to send them an official complaint concerning a recent lengthy piece on Newsnight about domestic abuse/violence (‘DA’). The piece didn’t deny the existence of male victims or female perpetrators of DA, it simply ignored their existence altogether. As usual with the BBC – there have been programmes which have been exceptions, but only a few – the talk was only of female victims and male perpetrators. The video’s here – the piece dated 7 January 2014 – along with a little commentary from us:
Even historically right-of-centre mainstream media outlets have become peddlers of gender feminist narratives, or at least report in such a way as to not challenge those narratives. In the latest edition of The Economist the paper manages to devote a full page to the crises facing the NHS without mentioning that many are directly attributable to the relentless increase in the numbers of women doctors over many years. Over 30 years ago the bestselling writer Dr Vernon Coleman was warning that the feminisation of the NHS would have dire consequences in time. How right he was.
Another story in the paper caught my eye, in the ‘news round-up’ section. This is the full text:
An obstetrician in China was given a suspended death sentence for selling newborn babies from Shaanxi province to child traffickers. The doctor convinced parents to give up their babies by telling them the children had medical problems. Child trafficking is an increasingly common crime in China.
My hunch is most people reading the above would assume the doctor was a man, and that only a few babies were involved. Both assumptions would be incorrect:
From the article:
A cruel Chinese female doctor who told mothers their new-born babies had died, but had secretly sold them, has been given a suspended death sentence. Obstetrician Zhang Shuxia, 55, was found guilty of stealing seven babies after telling their parents the newborns were sick or had died – before selling the children to traffickers for £2,255 for females and £5,240 for males…
It is believed Zhang sold many more children than the seven she was charged with stealing. According to reports received by police, some 26 babies were stolen from their mothers and Zhang was named as the main suspect.
I also read a piece in a leading broadsheet two or three days ago which reported only the doctor’s name, which to most British people would have given no indication of gender.
The final point is of course that because the doctor’s a woman, the death sentence was suspended. Can we seriously doubt that if the doctor had been a man, he’d have been shot in the back of the head by now? Surely not.
