Abused boys are children, abused girls are girls. Abused men are people, abused women are women.

I’m sick to death of headlines referring to boys who have been subjected to atrocities as ‘children’, under circumstances when girls would be referred to as ‘girls’. Likewise men referred to as ‘people’, when women would be referred to as ‘women’. This story is a particularly blatant example of the phenomenon.

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.
