Our thanks to Emily for this. It’s a tweet from Glen Jankowski, Critical psychology lecturer at Leeds Beckett. He claims a new ‘male psychology’ section of the BPS (British Psychology Society) won’t help men or women. A taster:
If the aim of the section is to focus on bringing together men and masculinities researchers, [hopefully not, since the latter are invariably feminists] then the Section must look at what Raewyn Connell calls ‘the patriarchal dividend’. [Why must it, given that feminist patriarchy theory has no basis in reality?] That is how men as a class of people are disproportionately advantaged…
You get the drift. A tip of the hat to Belinda Brown for her response to Jankowski’s tweet.
Raewyn Connell – the lesbian feminist taxpayer-funded parasite who Jankowski imperiously asserts the BPS Men’s Section ‘must’ look to for guidance – is a 73-year-old Australian sociologist. From her website:
I have been an interested observer of masculinities all my life, but began to think of this as a researchable issue in the late 1970s. At that time, anyone interested in power structures could see that the feminist challenge to patriarchy must mean changes in the lives of men.
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.
