Our thanks to Nigel for some more anti-male propaganda by a woman on the BBC website. Nigel writes:
A little microsm of how even the most positive interventions somehow always end up being about everything is men’s fault. So we set off with a tale of trying to address the high suicide rate amongst men. Though probably not that helpful in reality, it trundles on with current conventional wisdom that it’s good to talk. A bit of encouraging peer support and management of emotions may not really address the core issues about suicides, but it could be helpful in other ways.
But somehow inevitably the story slides more and more away from concern with boys and men’s mental health and emotional life. To concern about some epidemic of violence against women. Out come the usual extreme cases and tropes and by the end, we are back in perpetrator programmes and in the very last sentence we are far far from empathy or concern for boys and men, “they use anger, they’ve gotten away with it for most of their life.” Nice eh?
In a way it’s quite clever how the piece begins with concern for boys and men and their mental health and ends with the view you need to be suspicious of all men, brothers, cousins, uncles and friends because hidden away they are boiling cauldrons of anger exercising violence on domestic partners and children!
The BBC – bad, mad and dangerous to know.
