I’d like to record my appreciation to Glen Poole for saving me time in future, by banning me from leaving comments on his latest article. I learned of the ban when I tried to post the following comments:
Glen, you write:
“I would argue that the two most successful men’s campaigns in the past 10-20 years —– in terms of mainstream reach —- have been the Fathers 4 Justice campaign on the issues facing separated dads (2003-2005 period) and International Men’s Day (and its focus on male suicide) (2015 and 2016).
It may just be coincidence that I took a lead role in both, maybe I got lucky twice, or maybe I’m doing something that works?”
Wow. You’ve done NOTHING that ‘works’. Those campaigns were ‘successful’? The first had mainstream reach but didn’t translate into children / fathers / paternal grandparents getting better access, and as far as suicide is concerned, the only mention of your Men & Boys Coalition in the mainstream media (to the best of my knowledge) were articles by you and Martin Daubney, who’s also a member of the coalition. The wider MSM has ignored you completely.
The government is doing NOTHING about male suicide. The Dept of Health is holding an inquiry which won’t take oral evidence from us, after we pointed out in our written submission that the state is the prime driver of male suicide, something about which you’re in complete denial. If you won’t admit the key problems (the state and feminism) you won’t be able to develop solutions.
To one of the very few commenters who support Glen’s position in any way, his response starts in his trademark, ‘I’m so in touch with my female side right now, can we hug?’ mode:
Thank you for listening…….seriously, I’m a bit tearful writing this……because you’ve listened and heard and understood and now we can connect as human beings….rather than simply interact through a clash of opinions.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
