Mankind Initiative video: ‘Violence is violence’

We recently posted a piece about a short video (1:50) from Mankind Initiative about the public’s double standards with respect to men assaulting women, and women assaulting men. We’ve just learned that the video’s already been viewed by over a million people, and attracted more than 1,000 comments. An outstanding response. We take our hats off to Mankind Initiative for this achievement. The video is here.

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.

  • Indeed. I am struck by many comments about fairness, that both sexes should expect the same treatment. This I think goes to the root of any appeal to the public. Cleverly feminists and their allies chivalry and self interest put a lot of effort into connecting stories of ” unfairness ” with their cause. These days many , if not most, come from abroad, often radically different societies and conditions. By doing this they continually feed a narrative of unfairness to be “solved” (a good example was how women being less willing to drive was morphed into an entirely speculative view that men are always commenting on their partners driving). This short vid highlights an unfairness. As do educational attainment, divorce and children, positive action at work(the quotas by stealth in many workplaces) and so on . The unfairnesses have been effectively suppressed (often by simply not publishing or reporting the stats.)so unsurprisingly people are unaware until they actually experience discrimination or things like the Vid puts it in front of them.
