William Hague – no longer a closet feminist

Last week, while ISIS forces rampaged across Northern Iraq, slaughtering large number of men, crucifying or beheading many, William Hague, foreign secretary, spent his time with his new bestie, Angelina Jolie. It will come as a surprise to nobody that he’s long been a closet feminist, and ‘came out’ in an interview with Jenni Murray on Women’s Hour. Guido Fawkes captured the admission for posterity 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,under the present,feminist inspired and saturated governments,13 kidnapped women (who may be coerced into marriages by their abductees) seem to arouse far more attention,preoccuption and will end up with the allocation of far more resources to deal with than hundreds of civilian men or boys being killed,tortured and maimed.Put your silly gentlemanly masks in your closets guys,or better,throw them in the dustbin of history and start seeing women for what they really are. Selfish,self centered,dishonest,whiny and greedy attention seekers who don’t give a damn that their own sons are discriminated against by the very state they support,or that they releive their children of their rights to their fathers.They don’t give a damn that nearly all the homeless on the home front are men and thr vast majority of suicides are by men. Women inspired and saturated governments only care about the well being of women and girls. Male leaders have never been discriminatory against women or girls.This makes women less fit to govern than men. There are hunderds of facts that prove feminists are only interested in women’s well being. Why support this ?

  • Well I had thought it just a chance to hob nob with the “gliterati” . A can’t recall a single instance since the post ww2 settlement where a security council, Nato, UN member has suggested that the pillage and rapine of populations is a good or even acceptable idea. Nor that doing such is not a war crime. A curiously superfluous campaign except for domestic(western) consumption. It seems naive to suppose that the campaign will impress in the failed states, civil wars and terrorist armies involved(where generally the “enemy” males just get slaughtered as they pose a more immediate threat). With both Syria and Iraq about to implode and whole “near east” fragile , nice to see the FS keeping his eye on things.

  • Well, William Hague’s feminism was hardly a great secret. In commenting on Boko Haram, those lovely guys who have burnt to death thousands of boys, he said “The first focus of everything we do now is about the girls, of course it is”. While I’m on the subject of Hague and his pal Angelina, you may be interested in redressing the balance after their recent Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. I strongly recommend the documentary “An Unspeakable Act”:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00vxx55 or Will Storr’s article covering the same issue http://www.theguardian.com/society/2011/jul/17/the-rape-of-men. Don’t be put off by the sources here – these items are emphatically contrary to their usual editorial policy.

  • The Tories are playing the ‘chase the feminist’ vote game for all they are worth in advance of 2015. They are latching on to feminist role models to suck up to women (or drooling in the case of WH, his tongue was just about hanging out around Angelina Jolie all week!) to get Labour’s women’s vote.

    When I heard the note of triumph in Jenni Murray’s voice when she got him to say he had ‘come out’ as a feminist on Woman Sour, I wanted to be sick. I’ve always had a sneaking regard for William Hague, but he is clearly just a women’s poodle. What an a*se.

    And as to stopping rape in war? I mean what planet are they on? An outrageously expensive week-long conference, with a simpering bimbo from Hollywood talking unrealistically about something that is, and always has been, part of the horror of war (2 million women were raped in Berlin when the Russians entered it in 1945), is just about the measure of where we have all got to in the West. Men like Hague are up their own fundamental orifices and women like Jolie are up – well, the other.

    This is all about the men-as-violent-rapists narrative isn’t it? That is the underlying theme. Maybe these vacuous people will one day come to realise that it is only men who will stop this foul aspect of war? Not women. It is only men, men who will defend their countries – and their women and girls – from the foreign invader who will stop this.

    And if you undermine men and rob them of their dignity and will to fight for their country by systematically discriminating against them in work, the family, the courts, no amount of conference communiques or international accords, or even laws (‘cos laws don’t apply in war, see?) are going to stop the unstoppable when a blood lusted army crosses your borders.

    Of course, women will one day presumably be a significant part of our armed forces – as they were in the resistance groups of France in the Second World War, and as they often are in national struggles in the less-developed world today. Take the Tamils for example. Presumably they belief is that rape and pillage will stop then? Maybe only in la-la land.
