Fogg denies he’s a feminist, yet writes feminist nonsense like this:
Masculinity is a political construction.
No, it’s not, it’s a biological construction. And this:
As a society we find it really easy to understand that women are products of the culture that moulds them – consider all the concerns about Disney princesses, pinkification, gendered toys etc. We find it really easy to agree that women need help and support to be liberated and fulfilled, to have full opportunities in their life, education and careers. We find this easy because we are steeped in patriarchal values. [my emphasis]
I welcome Grayson Perry’s careful consideration of modern masculinity. It is helpful that what he says can be heard. However we must recognise that what he is doing is identifying problems. Developing solutions is not a matter of art or psychotherapy, but of politics. [my emphasis]
The final sentence makes sense, but any ‘solutions’ which are driven by feminists are inevitably doomed to fail.
Most of the problems facing men and boys today in the UK result from state-driven assaults on their human rights, usually to advantage women and girls. We outlined 20 such areas in our 2015 general election manifesto. There are no areas in which the human rights of women and girls (specifically) are assaulted by the state’s actions and inactions in the UK. None.
