I have been trying to respond to the SPLC mention of ICMI in their Hate in Europe: July 2018 report since early yesterday.
Having finally given up hope that they will allow it, I will publish it here:
Hi, SPLC. I am the Director of Communications of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them) and I noticed that you failed to mention our name as the other co-organiser, along with AVfM. Since we put a lot of work into organising this conference, it would be appreciated if you would amend the report to include us.
For any uninitiated readers: I can clarify that the event was nothing to do with hate. It was actually emblematic of the higher level of compassion that the Men’s Human Rights community embodies. As such, the speakers included a number of male victims (of a murder plot, of Domestic Violence, of stalking, of false allegations) giving presentations in which calls were made for truth and justice and equality of treatment with female victims. There were critiques of feminism too, my speech included, as feminism is a genuine hate movement that stands in the way of equality in many societies. It is true that Oliver suggested that ethno-nationalists could be some kind of allies to our movement – this suggestion was challenged from the floor however, as was Eric Anderson’s suggestion that feminists could be our allies. Funny how you chose to mention one and not the other.
Videos of the talks are currently being released on the YT channel An Ear for Men.
