If male offenders were treated in the same way as female offenders, 68,000 of the 80,000 men in British prisons wouldn’t be there

The prison overcrowding ‘problem’ would be solved overnight if male criminals were treated in the same way as female criminals. Time for some real gender equality?

In the coming week we plan to publish a lengthy report on the anti-male bias of the entire British criminal justice system with respect to tackling intimate partner violence. One link in the report will be to a piece by RedPillUK – here. Male offenders are treated far more harshly than female offenders in terms of sentencing. As the RedPillUK piece shows, whatever the crimes men commit, they’re far more likely than women to serve a custodial sentence – by a factor of 3.4 on average. Looking only at cases where custodial sentences are awarded, men receive sentences on average 64% longer than women.

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.

  • I could not agree more with this fact. What I’d like to add is that if men did not extend preferential treatment to women on a personal basis,there would also be a very small number of men behind bars,not that different from the number of women.
    But if men insist, on a personal basis, on extending women preferential treatment,the rest of society will follow suit and we end up where we are now. Chivalry is the main culprit for today’s discrimination against men,boys,male students and male workers.
    WOMEN DO NOT DESERVE ANY PERKS ANYMORE,IN THESE TIMES OF EQUALITY.
    STOP OFFERING THEM ANY. CHIVALRY IS FEEDING THE FIRE OF FEMINISM.
