My thanks to Mike Buchanan, our former leader and the creator of the website Laughing at Feminists, for the following updates, they take up the remainder of this blog piece:
2020 International Conference on Men’s Issues (ICMI20)
Followers of this blog will be aware that ICMI2020 will be a virtual conference on account of Covid-19. Elizabeth Hobson and I are two of the key organizers of the event. We’re using the opportunity of a virtual conference to expand hugely the number of speakers (providers of videos). We plan to publish 120 videos (one per hour, every hour) from midday, Saturday, 14 November, to midday, Thursday, 19 November, 2020 (International Men’s Day), Sydney time (the event was originally going to be held in Sydney). The Guests of Honour include Dr Warren Farrell, Erin Pizzey and ManWomanMyth.
This conference is the first ICMI in which we’re extending an open invitation to those with an interest in gender matters (other than feminists, obviously) to submit materials, details here. [Update 19.9.20: We have 103 confirmed speakers already, the speaker names and their talk titles are here. The speakers’ page on the website is here.] We’re confirming new speakers every week, so if you’re thinking of contributing a video, contact Mike Buchanan (email@example.com) asap.
Regarding Men weekly men-only video meetings
I recently had the pleasure of hosting the first two UK-based men-only video meetings on behalf of Regarding Men (Paul Elam, Professor Janice Fiamengo, Tom Golden). Attendees included men from the UK, Ireland, United States, Australia and India. They went very well, and I’m looking forward to hosting future meetings. They will be held on Sundays at 14:00, BST or GMT, whichever time zone is operating in the UK at the time. From the Regarding Men website:
Paul Elam, Janice Fiamengo, and Tom Golden have joined forces to create a platform to connect Red Pill men and provide them ongoing social support. We want to solve the dilemma of Red Pill Isolation by connecting like-minded men to each other, online and in the real world. Regarding Men is a place for men to speak truthfully about their lived experience and get support, without having to care about blue pill sensitivities.
We are making the meetings and other services available to Red Pill men across the world 7 days a week, 365 days a year. That is what your support is going to help us build. Join us now and let’s grow this thing together.
It costs $5.00 (about £4.00) per month to become a member and gain access to all the meetings and services available. I invite you to join, what do you have to lose? If you later decide it’s not for you, you can cancel your membership at any time. I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting, and later ones.
The (video) meetings are on Zoom, but you won’t need to upload any software, just click on a link on the Regarding Men website. You can remain anonymous if you want, using only audio, or even contribute solely by sending messages, which I’ll read out from time to time.
Our last general election manifesto is here.
If everyone who read this gave us £5.00 – or even better, £5.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. £5.00 monthly would entitle you to Bronze party membership, details here. Benefits include a dedicated and signed book by Mike Buchanan. Click below to make a difference. Thanks.
