Our thanks to C for pointing us to an interview with Roz Hardie on an appropriately named website, Dazed. Impressively, the writer manages to pack four lies into the second paragraph alone:
Their 80-page general manifesto can best be summarised as “dudes to the front”: Buchanan wants to scrap the Equality Act 2010, make abortions illegal, discourage lesbians and single mothers from having kids, and stop women from being appointed in senior executive roles.
Later in the piece:
But the J4MB website makes it clear that women (and feminists especially) are to blame for most men’s problems. Male suicide? Women. Male unemployment? Women. And if you disagree with the party line, you get honoured with the party’s Lying Feminist of the Month award. Other prizes include Gormless Feminist of the Month and the Harpy Lifetime Achievement Award. Last honouree: Germaine Greer.
So who are these lying harpies hellbent on destroying male entitlement and privilege, and how can we be friends with them? Roz Hardie is one such award winner. The Object CEO campaigns against sexual objectification and exploitation and was proudly given the Lying Feminist award for standing up to Buchanan on a TV debate. [Our emphasis]
Ms Hardie didn’t get her ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award for standing up to me in a TV debate, she got it for… er… LYING. It’s clearly a distinction that’s too subtle for the feminist mind to grasp. A quote from Ms Hardie:
Mike Buchanan awarded me Lying Feminist of the Month. That’s the greatest honour of my life.
I don’t wish to be unkind, but doesn’t that say more about Ms Hardie’s life than our award? She comes across as one of those sad women to whom feminism is such a large part of their identity, they could barely function without it. They can never ditch the ideology, however ridiculous it patently is, because it provides them with a reason to carry on.
