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.

    The article is ‘Mother of two’ not ‘father of two’

    • I know. The purpose of the gender switch was to point out the double standard, with a headline that you’ll never read.

      • Very effective in this instance, more of this please.

  • Yeah, yeah, very good, Mike, you got me with that one

  • vadark

    That gender switch headline played havoc with my brain.

  • epistemol

    After a moment of confusion, I rightly interpreted your headline as being deliberately ironic.

    My personal view about ‘underage’ sex is that the whole witchhunt has gone too far, whatever the sex of the perpetrator.

    Like you, I recognise and deplore the inequality of sentencing that is obtaining, but I also recognise that millions of years of evolution have selected for our desire to breed with the youngest, and healthiest mate we can find.
    No law will override that, it’s heads and brick walls time..

    I remain dismayed, but not surprised at our inability to deal with sex, something that has existed since the year dot.

    One of the reasons for this is that sexuality has been turned into a weapon, not least by feminism.
    And what an ideal weapon it is too.
    Something that most ordinary, non-criminal people, want to do that can nevertheless be used against them, and with official backing as well.

    The proof of this lies in the fact that I can point out this truth without any serious comeback.
    Anyone in public life stating
    “the bleedin’ obvious” would be in deep trouble.

      ‘A headline that you’ll never read’? It takes less than 30 seconds to find these stories on Google. An investment of zero effort yields the following:

      Perverted woman snared by paedophile hunters escapes jail despite admitting sexual grooming (August 2016):

      Paedophile escapes jail for her indecent assault on boy; Victim’s family ‘swept matter under the carpet’ (July 2016):

      Fury as paedophile, 61, escapes jail after claiming boy victim, 7, pinned HER down and forced his tongue in her mouth (July 2012)

      Having said that, I’d also point out that they only flag up the gender of the perpetrator explicitly when it’s a woman because they need to counter the automatic assumption that ALL sex criminals are men. I doubt they’d really say ‘Father-of-three’ in this context – they’d just say ‘Paedo’ or ‘Pervert’ and expect us to figure out the person must be male.

      • Colin, I think you’ve missed the point of the post. I changed the genders in the subject line – to ‘a headline you’ll never read’. We’ve published links to plenty of stories of women sexually abusing boys and girls, and getting suspended sentences.

      • Colin Carter

        Mike, I was having a (slightly childish) joke of my own: all the cases above are about men getting suspended sentences for sexually abusing children, with the genders reversed. Obviously if they had been women the sentences may have been even more lenient and the cases less well publicised, but I don’t think ‘a headline that you’ll never read’ was intended as hyperbole, so I’m illustrating that it’s not true. Good work, though – I don’t mean to say it’s not worth driving home a sound point with rhetorical force.

  • By coincidence I happened on a copy of an “old” report on sentencing by magistrates. A report done on Magistrates for the Home Office. From a decade ago. It found that there was indeed leniency for women. Summing this up that women were viewed as “troubled” and men as “troublesome” in the view of the majority of Magistrates. Thus sentencing of women was intended to help and sentencing of men to punish. This was in the 90s and refers to studies previously in the 70s and 80s. It has of course been much the same in recent studies too. The point being that this differential is very well established fact. Indeed the Corston report seeking to end imprisonment for women is just more of the same.
    And yet Mr Davies is attacked for simply pointing this out using Gov. data.
