Our thanks to Mark for this. It’s an outrageous feminist propaganda piece in the latest edition of the Times Educational Supplement by Natasha Devon, the Department of Health’s mental health champion. An excerpt:
That’s why I’m so pleased feminism is to be reinstated in A-level politics, but I don’t think this goes far enough. An open and frank discussion, including all genders, where everyone is allowed to express themselves freely and without judgment, needs to form part of PSHE. And discussion of feminism shouldn’t be confined to women’s historical struggles but to what is happening on social media today to cause such discord and discontent.
The government has made fighting radicalisation a priority under the current guidelines. It is my belief that websites like Return of Kings [Not a Men’s Rights website] and their ilk are actually radicalising vulnerable young men into misogynistic thought and behaviours. We cannot address this without first considering the root cause – the Men’s Rights movement online was not created by its most vocal advocates, it existed because a significant swathe of men feel marginalised by their understanding of the feminist agenda. [My emphasis – these men’s understanding of the feminist agenda was very sound, which is precisely why they felt marginalised.] Their feelings shouldn’t be dismissed. [Ms Devon, you dismissed men’s feelings in your last sentence.]
