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.

    and the Nobel prize for social justice and equality goes to…….Mr. Philip Davies !
    At least it should.

    • Groan

      Certainly should. Particularly in the Blair years there began to be a lot more Bills that were poorly drafted because they were a “knee jerk” response to a news item or media “storm” (or even a visit to No10 by a person with an issue). These either cause a mess in implementation or more frequently just sit on the statute books ignored.
      Rather than “no clothes” there is an ever expanding kaleidoscope of fashionable Legislation that exists simply to look like “something is being done”. In fact in amongst billowing mass of “virtue signalling” some pernicious stuff gets slipped through. Like the apparently virtuous Istambul Declaration recently or the somewhat superfluous and blatantly sexist repatriation of only female bodies of victims of “honour” crimes.
      I expect any Bill based on the idea of further fixing rape trials will similarly try to slide through the quiet times in parliament.
      So you go sir.

    “Men’s rights activists must wake up and realize that the time for trying to counter the hypocrisy with rationality – with essentially male arguments, using facts and truth, in the hope that sense will prevail – is not going to make any difference to the relentless feminist long march on men” -Herbert Purdy ICMI-16

    And just to prove the point even Respect’s raising the lack of services for men.

    I’m not daft enough to think much will happen but still more proof Mr. Davies’ is a sorely needed voice on the Equality select Committee . As one key driver of this inequality is the Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy enacted now by three Governments. In effect the strategy reserves all funding for women’s organisations. In desperation many councils are reduced to commissioning Women’s organisations to help men because they are not able to Commission gender neutral or specifically men’s services without falling foul of the VAWG strategy through which public money is channelled.

  • William Gruff

    From the article cited: ‘

    As well as gender equality, the MP is pushing government to set out a timetable on when it will extend the number of crimes where a sentence handed down by judges can be challenged if deemed too lenient.

    He has long called some sentences “ridiculously lenient” and said reforms were long overdue.

    Some of the more egregious cases have been reported here, at Justice for Men and Boys. I wonder if it is those Mr Davies has in mind.
