98.3% of the women who follow The Everyday Sexism Project have problems other than men

This article isn’t a spoof, apparently:

It’s brought to you by The Everyday Sexism Project, which has over 100,000 followers on Twitter. Women are being taught ever more things to whine about, rather than being expected to deal like rational adults with a sometimes challenging and dangerous world – as men have always had to. The project is nothing less than a 24/7/365 initiative to infantilise women, and it’s achieving that objective. Laura Bates must be thrilled.

It’s all too apparent that the main problem in many (maybe most) of her project’s followers’ lives aren’t men, but mental health issues, including personality disorders. Let’s take this example from the article:

I used to be quite aggressive and bold and now I find myself afraid to look men in the eye or smile because if I do they think it’s an invite to call me sweetheart and beckon me to them. I have anxiety attacks now, I cry for no reason, I’ve fallen behind in work, most of my friends are male and don’t seem to understand. None of the men who have made me feel worthless will be punished for what they did, instead I am punished.

A friendly middle-aged (female) cashier smiled at me this morning – now that’s a rare thing, in Tesco – and called me ‘darling’, although she didn’t ‘beckon’ me to her, thankfully. If such things led to me having anxiety attacks and crying, surely the problem would be mine to resolve? The problem surely wouldn’t be a cashier having called me ‘darling’.

The woman who wrote the extract we’ve taken from the article – and others like her – should be seeking treatment for their mental health problems, rather than fantasising that initiatives such as The Everyday Sexism Project will change the world, because they won’t. All these initiatives do is make women more angry at males collectively – half the humans on the planet – and make women more anxious and more dysfunctional in dealing with the real world.

Who benefits from such initiatives? Professional feminists, including women with Narcissistic Personality Disorder who are basking in the exposure they receive in the mainstream media. Collectively, however, women are paying a terrible price.

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.

  • The most distressing thing about the latest EU-wide survey on violence is that the vast majority of people, though exposed to its ‘results’ via the BBC and newspapers, will fail to notice the key thing – that only women were interviewed. So, no in-built bias there then. What next, a political poll which interviews only Labour Party members and concludes that Labour are ahead by 99%? And because the bulk of people will fail to notice this outrageous bias they will not even think of asking themselves this question: just who is it that has financed an obviously biased and very expensive ‘survey’ of 42,000 women across 28 states of the EU? Women are powerless? They sure have lots of money.

    • I understand it was an EU-funded study so, ironically, it’s mainly men (as taxpayers) who funded it – just as its mainly men who fund EVERY state assaults on men’s interests.

  • For centuries (middle to upper class)women were protected from all the hardship of the world except maybe some household chores, even mentioning the word ‘trouser’ in the presence of a woman was frowned upon. Now women are treated as equals, criticized as equals, hit on as if they are capable adults, etc… and now feminism is fighting against it. Third wave feminism has been advocating for a return to Victorian values, “donglegate” is the modern equivalent of talking about trousers in the presence of a woman, Stephanie Guthrie having a man arrested for criticizing her on twitter is the modern equivalent of treating women with respect no matter what, numerous campaigns have been started in recent years with the sole purpose of bringing back the age old practice of men acting as an unpaid police force for any woman, they are explicitly saying “men need to defend women” just like men always did until we were called sexists for it. They got equality and since they have never experienced it they perceive it as discrimination.

    • Thanks, great points. Women got what they wished for… and now realise the grass was NEVER greener on the other side of the fence hahahahahaha
