A new article from Ali – insightful and powerful, as always. I recall a BBC documentary in which soldiers were putting their lives at risk in an area of Afghanistan largely controlled by the Taliban. Female ‘soldiers’ were being transported to villages to teach Afghani women and girls about the evils of the ‘patriarchy’. Occasionally they were in firefights with the Taliban. One female ‘soldier’ was asked what she did during the firefights. She cheerfully retorted, ‘I hit the deck and let the boys sort things out!’ We can be sure these female soldiers were on the same salaries as the men who were risking their lives to protect them whilst they spread their poisonous feminist ideology. Meanwhile their sons and brothers, some as young as 12, members of the supposed ‘oppressor class’, were in the fields armed with rifles in a desperate effort to protect their villages from Taliban raids.
About Mike Buchanan
Mike Buchanan is a British men's rights activist (MRA) and anti-feminist. He was the founder and former leader (2013-20) of this party, and handed over the leadership to Elizabeth Hobson in May 2020.
J4MB remains the only party in the English-speaking world which is resolutely anti-feminist and campaigns for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. Those rights are assaulted by states' actions and inactions in many areas, almost always to privilege women and girls. 20 such areas were explored in the party's 2015 general election manifesto.
Mike was a business executive for 30 years before taking early retirement in 2010. He's written 10 books and is also a publisher. His last three books have been concerned with gender and gender politics, the most recent being Feminism: the ugly truth (2016).
Mike is the creator of the website Laughing at Feminists.
He has sole responsibility for organizing future International Conferences on Men's Issues (ICMIs) in Europe and North America, and was a key organizer of the London conferences in 2016, 2018 and the 120-speaker online conference in 2020.
