Our thanks to Nigel for this, on the BBC3 website. BBC3 was available as a terrestrial channel until last year, now it’s only online. The article is about Cassie Jaye and The Red Pill, the writer has made every effort to not display sympathy or empathy with Cassie or recognize the men’s issues raised by the film. An extract should convey the sneering tone of the piece:
She interviewed 44 people over three and a half years, from the most extreme men’s rights activists (MRAs) [Who might they be, one wonders? And what does ‘extreme’ mean in this context, anyway?] to prominent feminists such as Katherine Spillar, the Executive Editor of Ms. magazine.
“I thought that it would just be these ridiculous frumpy guys going around with picket signs saying ‘men are oppressed’.”
There are, in fact, a lot of frumpy guys going around with picket signs in The Red Pill. [OK, so men should talk about their issues, then they’ll get sympathy, right? Ha.]
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.
