Jo Swinson MP – Gormless Feminist of the Month, November 2014

Two emails from supporters this morning have resulted in Jo Swinson MP – a dire politician by any standards – winning a ‘Gormless Feminist of the Month’ award. Andrea pointed out we didn’t present a ‘Gormless Woman of the Month’ award in November – in our defence, we’ve been very busy – while Martin pointed us to a short but interesting piece on Mail Online.

Jo Swinson, a junior Equalities minister, has come close several times to winning a ‘Gormless Feminist of the Month’ award, as well as a ‘Whiny Feminist of the Month’ award, but her Foreword in a very silly taxpayer-funded report earned her the former. Her award certificate, with a link to the report (and the Mail Online piece) is 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.

  • Not sure I fully agree that paragraph is deserving of the award, sure it’s a bit silly but somewhat sane by the standards of many feminist politicians. Would much rather these awards were given to sexist feminists for clearly opposing equality.

    An article such as the following would justify 5 such awards:

    (and yes it’s by Swinson)

  • Far more concerning are the idealogues in the Labour Party ( just seen Mrs. Balls on ITVs Agenda twist a discussion on ageism to yet another “pay gap” monologue). The current government does manage to field some daft people and shows a tendency to patronising White knightery . They still tend to be less assiduous in their work ( still a few are not career politicians) then the full time obsessive politicians of the ” left”. It is the latter who will relentlessly find the means to enforce their will. 

    • Mrs Balls is a former winner of this award. If she becomes Home Secretary, God help husbands who have the temerity to frown at their wives or deny them anything they demand, however unreasonable. I expect that will be coercive control and lead to a spell in Wormwood Scrubs, contemplating the error of their ways. She’ll out-Harman Harman, given the chance to do so. You have to feel sorry for Ed and Jack, don’t you, two of the most reliably miserable men on the planet, with good reason.
