London feminists believe the nearest Saturday to Friday 25.11 is… er… not 26.11, but 19.11 (International Men’s Day). Doh!

Our thanks to E for this. We’ve long known that feminists aren’t the sharpest knives in the block, but those at The London Feminist Network (LFN) have to be among the bluntest. They make Jess Phillips MP and Harriet Harman MP look like intellectual giants, by comparison.

LFN is organizing a ‘Reclaim the Night’ march in London on 19 November, International Men’s Day. From the website:

Marches are normally held on the nearest Saturday to the 25th November to mark the UN Day to End Violence Against Women.

That would be Saturday, 26 November, not the day they’ve chosen, International Men’s Day, 19 November. Doh!

From the same web page:

Join us for London Reclaim the Night! Close down central London for women, put your feet on the streets to shout a loud NO to rape and all forms of male violence [my emphasis] against women.

Female violence against women is presumably fine. They show no concern over the long-known fact that the cohort of intimate partners perpetrating and suffering the highest levels of interpersonal violence are lesbians.

At the end of the page is a joke – in bold, for added emphasis – presumably penned by Kate Smurfwit or Sandi Toxic:

Join the feminist revival!

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.

    Go on, cheer me up, make my day by telling me it will be a slut walk through Brick lane.

  • I think they have chosen the 19th on purpose to coincide with International Men’s Day and the march

    • Thanks Erin. I suspect it’s purely symbolic – their march will start hours after the men’s march ends.

        To some extent I have to agree with E.P. The feminists hate the thought of the spotlight leaving their cause and their me, me, me attitude, hence holding it on November the 19th.

  • “Violence against women continues to occur every minute of every day, ” yeah and so it does to men.

    “A recent survey by the young women’s magazine More in 2005 found that 95% of women don’t feel safe on the streets at night” As a man I obviously feel really safe wandering the streets alone at night.

    “We demand the right to use public space without fear. We demand this right as a civil liberty, we demand this as a human right.” Do I as a man have a right not be scared of something?

    “boys aged under 12 are welcome to attend.” So we can get them indoctrinated early!

    “Unfortunately we have to recommend that women planning to leave the march and take a bus do so with a (female) companion who can support you if needed” Obviously any male companion will try and rape them.

    “Join the feminist revival!”

    The acknowledgement that it NEEDS reviving is not a bad comment in itself.

  • I wonder what thier reaction would be to a men’s march to shout a loud no to violence against men by women? Would they react with the kind of feminist violence witnessed in Toronto, or the feminist vandalism of the cathedral in Cologne in Argentenia, or the assaults on Christians in Argentina, or merely with threats like those in Detroit?

    Even better than a counter-march would be one that subsumes theirs with a march to END VIOLENCE AGAINST EVERYONE. It would be revealing in how people would then view people who don’t campaign on behalf of children or men, and show no concern for violence done by women.
