Last night the BBC broadcast a programme, in the course of which there was a five-minute-long piece on myself, Ryan Barry, and Josh O’Brien. We’ll publish the segment on our YouTube channel in the next day of two, but I wanted to publish an offer of help from a feminist teenager, who emailed me at 2:15 this morning:
My name is <name redacted> and i’m 19 years old from Preston, England.
First of all I just wanted to start off by saying I’m not a crazy feminist that is against men however, after reading your manifesto and all the context on your website [Reading all that material would probably take weeks, but she seemingly managed it in four hours.] i have to say your idea of feminism is wrong. But not untrue, feminism has be (sic) associated with men hating woman who are overpowering in their opinions.
I believe in equality not entitlements and supremacy. As a feminist I want to raise awareness about issues concerning men and I want have (sic) an equal representation for both sexes. I want to raise issues such as male rape, domestic abuses towards men, male suicides, and the high standards forced on men by society along with much more.
I recently watched a program in which your party was apart (sic) of, on BB3 and i watched the hate thrown your way. I believe that, with my help, you maybe able to put forward your ideas in a less ‘woman bashing’ way. And be able to affectively (sic) voice your opinions. If you allow me to help you I think I can be a great addition to your team, as a woman I will be able to productively talk to other woman with issues involving men.
I look forward to hearing from you,
I politely declined the young lady’s offer.
Not long after the programme was broadcast, I received a somewhat more pithy response, from another feminist:
You are an absolute twat. Fuck off.
