I awoke early this morning, and as I’ve been engaged on an exciting project – hopefully I’ll be able to say more towards the end of the week – I struggled to return to sleep. I like to spend my time doing useful things, and what better thing could there be than to inform prominent gender feminists of some our materials relating to them?

Could it be that your supporters aren’t happy to see you publicly challenged with respect to making a misleading statement in an interview?
Yesterday I received an email from a supporter pointing out that today is the first anniversary of the publication of my article on you, Laura Bates, and Finn Mackay, on ‘A Voice for Men’. She thought I should bring the article to the attention of the three of you, so here it is. Enjoy:
Laura Bates’s campaign inspired us to launch The Whine Club and our Whiny Woman of the Month award, of which she was the inaugural winner. My article on The Whine Club was published on 21 November by ‘A Voice for Men’:
