Boko Haram kidnaps 97 men and boys. Cameron and Obama say nothing.

When Boko Haram kidnapped a large number of Nigerian schoolgirls some months ago, David Cameron, Barrack Obama, and other leaders, along with many celebrities, made public statements about the matter. Collectively they’ve said nothing publicly about the many killings of Nigerian men and boys in recent years. and they’ll say nothing publicly about the latest kidnapping of men and boys – 97 of them.

The article’s headline fails to identify the gender of those kidnapped – inconceivable if women and/or girls has been kidnapped – and the article states that 28 ‘people’ were killed. In this context, we can be virtually certain that ‘people’ means men and boys.

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.

  • What? No #Bringbackourboys, twitter campaign from The First ‘Lady’?

    What a surprise!


    “…The action happened four months after a world-wide campaign was started when around 200 girls were captured. THAT mass abduction occurred after over two years of anti-male attacks by Boko Haram, resulting in asking “Why do kidnapped girls get international attention but burning boys do not?”. Since then, there have been reports of hundreds of men and boys killed and maimed without any international outcry. The latest attacks follow a recognisable pattern, helping confirm the involvement of Boko Haram…”

    Hundreds of men and boys were killed and Hilary Clinton’s only response was to block efforts to have Boko Haram listed as a terrorist organisation .. until the news of captured girls was made public.

    “I was watching a BBC report yesterday [29th May] on television. To my surprise, they were talking of some of the previous horrors of the Boko Haram hoodlums. They showed a burnt-out classroom in an abandoned school and I was thinking they were going to talk about the 40 or so boys killed there. But no, all the reporter said was that the gunmen entered the classroom and gunned down three women, one of whom survived long enough to escape the fire. There was no mention of the boys burnt alive.”
