A piece by Glen Owen, the Political Correspondent of the Mail on Sunday. I loathe the word ‘unreconstructed’ as used in gender politics. Essentially it means “unchanged in line with feminists’ wishes”. Philip Davies will surely remain unreconstructed for the rest of his days, thank goodness. On the positive side, the piece ends with this (I’ve added relevant hyperlinks):
He also gave a speech at an event for Justice For Men And Boys (J4MB) – an anti-feminist political party – in which he complained about men who pandered to ‘militant feminists’ and ‘zealots’ and criticised the drive for ‘so-called equality’.
He contrasted the campaigns to increase the number of women on company boards and in Parliament with the ‘deafening silence’ over increasing the number of men who have custody of their children.
He also argued that the justice system favours women by sending fewer to prison and not making them wear uniforms.
He said: ‘The feminist zealots really do want women to have their cake and eat it. They fight for their version of equality on all the things that suit women but are quick to point out women need special protections and treatment on other things.’
His remarks led Labour to call for Theresa May to withdraw the whip from Mr Davies on the grounds that ‘he has open contempt for women’ and his views were ‘prehistoric’.
The J4MB party – which issues awards for ‘lying feminist’ and ‘whiny feminist’ of the month – once published an article titled ’13 reasons women lie about being raped’. [J4MB: Janet Bloomfield’s excellent article has remained permanently on our website since 12 May, 2015, when we first published a link. It’s near the start of the Key posts section.]
Its 2015 Election manifesto manifesto suggested men should receive their pension before women because they work harder and die younger.
