Men are worth less than dogs (part 2)

Earlier this evening I put up a short piece about how the British justice system treats men as having less worth than dogs. I’ve been too busy today to prepare an evening meal, so about half an hour ago I went to my local curry restaurant to order a takeaway meal. On my way there, in the dark, I was passed by five or six young men, possibly in their late teens, walking in the opposite direction. One of them pushed one of his friends sharply against me, which caused me to fall over a low brick wall, hitting my head sharply against a large stone.

The young men went on their way, laughing, with one exception. He took the trouble to apologise prolifically for his friend’s behaviour, check I was OK, and help me get to my feet. I was shaken, but it soon afterwards dawned on me that it’s not just the British justice system which considers men as having less worth than dogs. Boys and young men are being taught to consider men in the same light. How can this not be damaging them psychologically? And people wonder why the #1 killer of young British men has for some years been suicide…

 

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.

  • It’s a terrible thing to happen Mike, I hope you are Ok. For what happened I blame fatherlessness and lack of the male role models, negative image boys get about themselves from the media and from education system – in a word – I blame Feminism.
    Were such things common, young men having complete disregard for other men in pre-feminism era? I think not.
    I wonder if that kid who stopped to ask if you are Ok did in fact had a positive male role model in his life.

    • Thanks Marcin, I’m OK. I’ve never heard of such a thing happening in all my born days, but I tend to incline towards your analysis. It would never have occurred to me in my late teens to do such a nasty and potentially dangerous thing. If it was later in the evening I’d think alcohol had something to do with it, but it was only 8pm.

    And so the immature guy who did the pushing remains blissfully ignorant of the fact that he’s just pushed someone who is going out of their way in life to make a brighter future for Mr. Pusher’s children! I agree with Marcin, too, in that men are taught to respect women and to disrespect other men as a trade-off. Feminism has fuelled this notion which has now been culturally adopted and accepted. I hope men wake up to all of this because it’s extremely damaging and completely unsustainable moving forward.

  • Hope yuo’re well Mike and recovered from the experience ok. I agree with the above comments in that current young mens behaviour is a result of feminism and how it has portrayed men as worthless and that it is only women who should be valued & protected

  • A society that treats it’s boys despicably, will inevitably raise despicable men.
    Hope you’re feeling better Mike.
