Project Ice Maiden: How female explorers face challenges of south pole trek

Another pointless female vanity project funded mainly by male taxpayers. In a piece on BBC News 24 in the past half hour, a member of the expedition said it would inspire women generally to ‘break through the ice ceiling’. The commentator claimed that the expedition was equivalent to those of Shackleton, Scott, Amundsen etc. My head hurts.

I look forward to the women being rescued by men at huge cost somewhere in the Antarctic. You can be very sure their exact location will be known at all times.

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.

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.

    To go where no man has gone before! No, wait…..

      Women go daily to regions totally unexplored by men in the history of mankind: regions of infantile fantasy and stupidity.

    One can but hope that they break through the “ice floor” instead. What’s tomorrow’s headline to be? Feminist women invent fire? Feminist women invent the wheel? Sorry ladies, but you’re on nothing more than a package tour following in someone else’s footsteps, with faux adventure thrown in as window-dressing. As for “loo breaks in extreme cold” well, I have no doubt that you’ll learn how to pee while standing up soon enough. What makes me so sad about this is that history will never untangle these lies, and the real contributions of Shackleton, Scott et al will be muddied and buried under this “oh, but women first and foremost…” nonsense.

    Laughable, straight out of the pages of the Bunty. Female ‘explorers’? WTF are they exploring down there? It’s been thoroughly explored for years. There are towns down there.

    I hope they’re aware that batteries don’t work very well in sub-zero temperatures.

    Of one thing we can be sure: failure will not be widely reported, nor will any expensive assistance. I think we can also be confident that the ‘hapless’ women will be excused on the grounds that men didn’t give them enough help (because we can’t deal with strong, independent women going where we fear to tread – oh hang on, men were treading there, unsupported, more than a hundred years ago).

      Come come Will — (you don’t mind if I call you Will?)
      They’re feeling

      They NEED this.

      The wrecking of the World’s most sucessful society ever is not too high a price to pay surely?
      Where’s your sense of proportion man?

  • Lawrence Newman

    Will they have video evidence to prove they covered that distance?

    • Mike Buchanan

      Lawrence, I hope you’re not suggesting they might lie. They’re women, that’s inconceivable. It’s time for you to go back to the re-education camp for another month, I think…

  • Paul Jackson

    I’m guessing that their biggest challenge will be keeping their traps shut for more than five minutes at a time.

    Apparently Neil Armstrong was not the first ‘person’ on the Moon after all.

    It was a woman if you must know.

    I could tell you her name, but then The Patriarchy would have to kill me.

  • Rob

    Why am I having a feeling of deja vu??
    I swear I have already heard this story last year?

    • Mike Buchanan

      Yes, it was first reported last autumn, I think. But there was a little more detail, so I thought it worth reviving.
