David Futrelle comments on our piece about LEGO ‘female scientists’ miniature figures

David Futrelle – an American, I think, though I’m not sure – seeks to make a living out of attacking individual MHRAs and sites such as AVfM. For all I know, he succeeds in his bizarre mission in life, opposing those who advocate for the human rights of men and boys. I honestly have much better things to do with my time than find out anything about him. Sorting my books into alphabetical order, by author, comes to mind.

AVfM regards Futrelle as one of the key people driving traffic to their site, so I was delighted to discover he’s attacked the blog piece on the LEGO ‘female scientists’ story we ran two or three days ago. It’s #3 in a blog piece he posted today, the title of which confers on me the honorary status – imaginatively – of ‘misogynist’:

I’ve just commented as follows, and it’s passed ‘moderation’:

David, good evening. I hope this finds you well. Thank you for driving traffic to my main site.

Maybe LEGO should inspire young wannabe female scientists with a range of modern era ‘famous’ scientists rather than ‘female’ scientists? Hmm, how might that work out? How many famous female scientists in the modern era can YOU name, following quite a few decades of equal opportunity? Yeah, I got the same number. Zippo. Nada. Squat.

So desperate are the social engineers to deny gender-typical career preferences, that Brunel University is offering 40 potential postgraduate engineering students over £20,000 pa additional grants. Which potential students? Those with vaginas, of course:

Why is it only a problem when professions are male-dominated, never a problem if they’re female-dominated?

Who pays for all these social engineering initiatives? Men, in the main. 72% of the income tax raised in the UK is paid by men, and it’s known the vast majority of female engineers who have children don’t subsequently return to the profession. So, David, do you think the Brunel initiative is a good use of taxpayers’ money? Come on, you know the answer to this question. It’s not rocket science…

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.

  • To fair Mike in the modern era Jocelyn Bell Burnell was famous for the discovery of signals from pulsar stars, i.e. spinning neutron stars. It was reported as little green men when first discovered so famous for a while in the late 1960s.

    Other notable ones not house names are, Jenny Clack who has done good work on the first land vertebrates, Mary Higby Schweitzer who discovered real dinosaur DNA in fossils, and Lisa Randall a top extra dimensions physicists. Here is an impressive lecture from her.

    However overall less than 10% of top scientists are women.
