William Collins: ‘Universal Suffrage in the UK’

Another solidly researched piece from William Collins (mra-uk).

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.

  • A First Class (‘scuse the pun) piece of work. Mr Collins has given us chapter and verse and ‘passed the ammunition’. It is up to men – and women – of good will and a desire for Truth to use it.

  • I would add….. most do not grasp the effect of WW1 on Britain. Mr Collins notes the fewer men after the war and the preponderance of women, but says little about the human, psychological effect. He mentions the political. But let us look at the Psychological for a moment. ( ‘Tis my profession after all).

    The population of Britain in 1914 was approximately 30 million: 10 million each of men, women and children. The male population was more than decimated. A million or near enough were killed and a further 2 million maimed with loss of limb, eyes, lungs etc. These, fully one third of all ‘marriageable’ men were effectively removed from not just the voting rolls but the national gene-pool.

    The effect on the women – who were fit and well – was devastating. (Less so than for men, it goes without saying ! ) Their chances of marriage and families were ruined. More, they were in a hugely increased competition with other women, to find and retain a husband. Other women were ‘the enemy’.

    And they suffered for their husbands and sons, lost at their beck and push They suffered GUILT.

    Women became, nationally, neurotic. Few managed to escape this neurosis. The Nation certainly didn’t. Some of the women made the best of a tough time. They became authors, lawyers, doctors, adventurers, explorers, even aviators, Doctors, academics and Professors. They were ‘adult’ woman thrust into adulthood by the reduced opportunity to be married and take the usual role of dependant ‘taller child’.

    Between the Wars many such women thrived. They used their political franchise, perhaps as reasonably as the men did. But the vast majority of women simply festered in their neuroses. Neurotics tend to descend !

    Then came the second World War. It came home to mainland Britain and turned civilians into targets. Women and children, just like the men. Women went to war too, in small numbers, and good work they did. But most women did not. They seethed with resentment. The death rate for men was less than for WW1 but still such as to have a significant impact on the national psyche.

    Women became psychotic. They seethed and stewed and produced psychotic daughters. The Modern 60’s, 70’s and current Feminists.

    The franchise changes of 1918 are frankly neither here nor there in comparison to the mutigenerational descent into madness that the nation has undergone. We speak all so often about the ‘Trauma’ of a child exposed to the sight of a man’s willy. We totally disregard the Trauma of a Nation that has had MILLIONS of dead and wounded Men.
