Cassie Jaye interviewed by Emma Barnett (BBC Radio 5 Live)

Our thanks to John for pointing us to this (audio, 12:21). The interview was recorded two days ago, when Cassie Jaye was in Los Angeles (04:30, local time). Emma Barnett (31), women’s editress of the Telegraph as well as a radio presenter, clearly has a very high opinion of herself – an affliction of all feminist BBC presenters – but her challenges of Cassie Jaye reveal her grasp of gender politics to be hopelessly weak.

In his email, John wrote this:

It’s worth noting Barnett’s background, her Twitter feed is just a stream of feminist nonsense. Most telling is her comment after the interview, at 11:49, about the idea of increasing male life expectancy, something she finds both baffling and amusing. She’s amazingly misandrous without even trying to be, or realising she is.

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.

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 thing is, they spent s significant amount of time discussing workplace and combat deaths yet it didn’t occur to Barnett that all these premature male deaths inevitable reducc life expectancy for males. Even a young child. Hold figure that one out. Admittedly, its discrimination in healthcare and male suicide which would make a more significant impact (and neither of those two scandals got s second of air time) but any improvement in this gender gap would be real progress no matter which of the many possible areas it came from.

  • At first I was disappointed that Cassie Jaye mentioned only ‘easy’ points – combat deaths, workplace deaths and male life expectancy – and seemed not all that enthusiastic in defending men’s issues. But then I thought, she’s being canny. She’s soft-pedalling because she doesn’t want to put off the (presumably mainly female) listeners from seeing the film. They only have to watch it . . . But I also suspect that she’s keeping her distance from the film’s content. After all, it’s only a film, and she never said she supported Men’s Rights.
