Just published (video, 24:22). I could spend an hour critiquing this piece of feminist propaganda, which says close to nothing on men’s issues, but I have too much on my plate. I think Philipp Tanzer did a great job under impossible circumstances. Listen out for the use of low-volume discordant audio tracks to imply something is amiss / dangerous. A common BBC ploy whenever men’s issues are being presented on screen.
I strongly urge you to post comments on YouTube. The “BBC Stories” channel has 300,000+ subscribers.
Philipp’s take on the programme is far more positive than mine, this is a statement from him:
Dear fellow mens rights activists and supporters.
Last year I was interviewed for over a week by the BBC. I agreed to that hoping to be able to represent our movement in a positive and realistic way. I am by no means the most eloquent MRA and my ability to remember data and facts is unfortunately substandard to most MRAs. The reason I thought I might be a good voice for our movement is, among other things, that I don’t fit into the angry STRAIGHT white male category and I hold very little anger in my heart. Any resentment (no matter how justified would have been used against us, I believe)
The reporter Alvaro, who was in charge of this project became a friend over the course of the filming process and he was very worried that I would not feel fairly treated in the documentary and he tried his best to be fair to me and our movement even though he is definitely blue-pilled.
I think he did a very good job, as balanced as it is possible for a mainstream documentary. Mens issues were highlighted many times and were highlighted as “legitimate”, not just by Alvaro, but even by the feminist who was interviewed. Even her views seemed relatively balanced (for a feminist) if you ask me.
I do apologize for not being better prepared when asked about Domestic Violence statistics and I apologize for saying that most attendees of the conference are/were “broken”. First of all, I believe that to be true and I wanted to “humanize” us and show that we all carry pain in us that made us fight against injustice.
I already complained towards Alvaro how Carl Benjamin/Sargon of Akkad was depicted but I think Carl was used as a “sacrificial lamb” on the altar of BBC orthodoxy.
When you watch the documentary, please be aware that Alvaro only had limited time and he had to condense a week of footage into 24 minutes. Be also aware that this could have been a nasty hit piece. Both Alvaro and I are very interested in your opinions and there will maybe even be a Q&A between me and Alvaro, where I can read to him, what MRAs/people liked about the documentary and what we didn’t like.
So please feel free to send me your reactions.
I hope I did a relatively good you representing the Mens Rights Movement.
The BBC has, as we all know a left leaning bias and MRAs have always suffered under this bias. By producing a balanced documentary on a Mens Rights Activist, I am sure Alvaro will get attacked from all sides. Some of us will attack him for challenging our narrative and having a certain anti-MRA bias, others with attack him for treating me/us surprisingly fairly. Let’s be thankful for a step in the right direction and let’s keep this door cautiously open. Alvaro is open to criticism, but I am sure he would appreciate positive feedback too.
