A new piece by The Fogg, no relation to The Mogg. I invite you to post a comment on the piece. I’ve just sent this, in response to his own comment #3:
Ally, you write, “What I am more interested in (largely because it is less well recognised & less well discussed) is how society and state fails men as they are.”
That’s what I’m very interested in, too. You may recall that in our 2015 general election manifesto (which you attacked) we explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted by the actions and/or inactions of the state, almost always in order to privilege women and girls. Female privileging causes male disadvantaging and suffering. How could it be otherwise?
Men and boys are ending their own lives because of reactive depression brought on by the state’s actions and inactions e.g. not addressing the 30-year-old education gender gap, denial of access to children after family breakdowns, denial of support to male victims of domestic violence, men treated a great deal more harshly than women in sentencing terms, men’s identities being revealed after claims of sexual offences, some going back half a century, and so much more besides.
My article on suicide for International Business Times:
It was published shortly before the company ended my short spell as a columnist (they said they’d wanted some ‘balance’ against their two feminist columnists), and replaced me with you. That may have provided some gender balance, but it simply returned the website to its historical feminist ideological monoculture. I am unaware of a single columnist in the mainstream media who regularly and forcefully challenges feminism.
