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.

    Those reprehensible bastards just as soon as he mentioned the word MALE they started in to try and drown him out! He had to call on the speaker to actually intervene to shut them the hell up!
    What the heck is wrong with GENDER-NEUTRAL unless there really, truly is a war on against men? As they so obviously proclaim by their jeering and snide remarks.

    And the majority of those waging this war ARE OTHER MEN?!?!?!?!?

    Mike, how can we win this war when our own gender is our worst enemy?

      I fear it has always been thus —
      A phenomenon that goes under the name of “Gynocentrism”.

      This is why the claim that women are under represented in parliament (for example) is quite wrong.
      In fact they are grossly over represented — but just by men, that’s all.

      Let me offer this defintion from no less a source than Wikipedia;

      “Gynocentrism refers to a dominant or exclusive focus on women in theory or practice, or to the advocacy of this.
      Anything can be considered gynocentric when it is concerned with a female
      (or specifically feminist) point of view.

      To save me the not inconsiderable task of re-writing that which has already been so well covered, may I recommend;

      Mike – I realise you may not want to read through the above recommendation to check it out, Thus I am happy to go with whatever you decide..
      I don’t know if you are familiar with Adam Kostakis (in a manner of speaking!) but his series of 12 lectures are a formidable body of work.

        Thanks. I might also add that women are over-represented as MPs in relation to the proportion of prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) who are female. When I worked as a consultant for the Conservative party (2006-8) men outnumbered women as PPCs 10:1. I doubt it is very different today. The only way to raise the proportion of female MPs is to lower the bar (whether through all-women shortlists, or less overt means) and select women who are less qualified than the best men available. The result of all-women shotlists is toxic feminists like Jess Phillips becoming MPs in constitiencies where the men don’t mind not being represented by their MPs.

    Tedius I know but anyone interested (or knowing anyone interested) can try to shove the Equality Commission on what they measure. Mr. Davies was very good pointing out the Commission CEO and Chair had no idea about their own equality stats.

    The Crime (Aggravated Murder of and Violence against Women) Bill would
    also require British authorities to prosecute those who beat and murder
    British women abroad, help bring the women home, and pay for the
    repatriation of the bodies of those murdered.

    this the stupidity of it all.

    So a british woman beaten abroad gets the British authorities to help them

    whilst british men beaten abroad( like myself) get sweet fa..

    so men like myself(I was asked when i was in the gulf by my ex wife where did i want to be buried !!)and others get no support from our own police in the UK and outside the UK.

    Amazing how the FCO and the authorities are never interested in protecting their citizens abroad ( because they want the trade) or will often quote “Its down to local jurisdiction”

    There is this incredible level of ignorance going on in parliament whereby they think honour killings or abuses are only inflicted on one gender and made worse by enablers such as Tory MP Nusrat Ghani played the feminist gender game.

    this is her reasoning…..

    she said,” Police are put off from investigating such crimes for fear of being branded racist.”

    so allow me to put that in another situation

    she said, Police are put off from investigating such crimes( Domestic Violence against men) for fear of being branded sexist and misogynist.

    How about simply telling the Police we will support you in this issue if any one calls you a racist, because lets face it , even if this bill went through the police would still be called racist.

    Another example of the double standard. It appears that adult females can’t consent if tipsy but 13 year old boys can. Now no doubt this story gets taken up by Liberty because the abusers also were male. But its the same basic idea for those older women who get off or community sentences because somehow teenage boys aren’t children in our society.
