Cometh the hour, cometh the woman. On IWD 2019 what better than to celebrate a woman who has done so much to push back against the oncoming anti-male feminist tsunami. I wish I were half so brave. Frequently Belinda has been a lone voice battling the sea of progressive-clones, such as on the BBC’s The Big Questions, or debating feminists at the Hay Festival, or at Bath University, or pushing back against the unfair privileging of women, for example in STEM academia, or exposing those who were against setting up a male section in the British Psychological Society. Belinda has published frequently in the mainstream media, generally with a harsh critique of feminism. Her most hard-hitting deconstructions of feminism, though, can be found on The Conservative Woman site, such as A young person’s guide to the failure of feminism and many pieces correcting feminist myths and on the internal contradictions of feminism. In particular, she has written numerous articles on the suffragette mythology, attempting to realign popular perception with historical reality, including a rather brave talk in the House of Commons last year. Belinda has written on the pay gap nonsense, and on facing up to, and celebrating, the difference between the sexes.
But being a critic of feminism does not automatically mean any particular compassion towards men. In Belinda’s case, however, it does, in both writings and talks. In a more academic mode she has exploded the misandric take on hegemonic masculinity in favour of an ethnographic description. But it is the issue of families and the feminist state’s destruction of the family which is her major focus, and the associated decline in fertility in the West. Perhaps one of her best, and most recent, papers describes how feminism set out to destroy the family and has largely succeeded.
Also, I have known her described as smoking hot. Obviously, I’m far too cerebral to have noticed, honest.
