Theresa May: I want to transform how we think about domestic violence

Here we go again. A piece in the Guardian by a female journalist, refusing to acknowledge domestic abuse of men by women. In the first extract, a duplicitous downplaying of violence against men:

… the Labour party has highlighted rising domestic violence rates since 2009, with an increase in violence against women perpetrated by their acquaintances, violence against women by strangers remaining level, and violence against men continuing to fall. [my highlight]

Violence against men may have fallen overall, but the numbers of convictions of women for domestic violence committed against men have been increasing for many years – can the journalist seriously be unaware of that?

Another extract:

May’s plan to transform the treatment of domestic violence cases in the UK will begin with a consultation lasting 12-18 months, which will seek ideas from charities, victims, providers of services to people suffering domestic abuse and other experts. [my emphasis]

When she was Home Secretary, Theresa May launched a cynical ‘consultation exercise’ which did NOT invite ideas or evidence from ‘experts’, including academics, who have been reporting for 40+ years that women are at least as violent as men towards opposite-sex partners. We can but hope these experts will do all in their power to engage effectively with the consultation.

Our 154-page submission to that Home Office consultation exercise is here. Our thanks to those who wrote the report, titled, ‘Intimate Partner Violence: The Gender Bias Against Men in England and Wales’. The document outlines in detail the anti-male bias of politicians and institutions including Theresa May, Yvette Cooper, Home Office, Crown Prosecution Service, Equality & Human Rights Commission, Ministry of Justice, the police, the judiciary…

If Beyoncé’s foetuses are babies, why aren’t all foetuses?

A good question, well answered.

Approaching nine million embryos and foetuses have been killed in the UK since the passing of the Abortion Act 1967, a period of 50 years in which women have had access to highly reliable contraception. Our position on abortion is in our 2015 general election manifesto.

Yale student group wants to force Fraternities to admit women, gives Sororities free pass

Predictable. The short piece includes some tortuous feminist-speak:

The group’s co-directors also said that allowing only men to join fraternities is a form of sex discrimination and the university has a responsibility to address the issue as it falls under the Title IX and Yale’s policies about gender discrimination.

Interestingly, the group doesn’t have an official position when it comes to female-only sororities. McGrew explained this by suggesting that unlike fraternities, exclusively female groups are intimate associations and don’t affect social trends at the university in the same manner. [my emphasis]

Emma Watson refused to get out of bed after people called her a bad feminist

Enjoy. Extracts:

Watson also took on other hot social justice topics, including the contentious gender pay gap, claiming that “no one is being paid equally”…

The actress – who gave the interview as part of a press campaign for the upcoming Beauty and the Beast film – said that she wants to study feminism more before commenting further.

“I need to see and do a bit more first. It’s not like I have been reading this material for years and I don’t have an encyclopaedic knowledge,” she said.

Mike Buchanan’s retrial for his MGM protest – Isleworth Crown Court, 3 March

Early in January I attended Isleworth Crown Court for my retrial on the charge of obstructing the traffic (for a total 49 seconds, across two points in time) during the second of two anti-MGM protests (the one in Parliament Square) last June. A video (14:52) of the protests is here.

In January the barrister appointed by the CPS admitted to the court he wasn’t adequately prepared for the trial, and asked for – and was granted – an adjournment. My thanks to E for filming and editing a video (1:27) of some stalwart supporters and myself after that.

Following a request by the judge on that day, there has been an exchange between the CPS and ourselves of documents with legal positions, arguments, and counter-arguments, and copies sent to the court. We believe the Crown’s position to be very weak, and I expect one of two outcomes on 3 March:

  • the Crown decides not to continue with the prosecution; or
  • the trial takes place, and I’ll be found ‘Not Guilty’ (there won’t be a jury).

If we’re successful, it could be a landmark victory in the struggle to end MGM in the UK, and perhaps beyond. So I hope you’ll be able to join us on the day. The court address is 34-36 Ridgeway Road, Isleworth, TW7 5NP. The court ‘day’ begins at 10am, but we won’t know until the day exactly what time our case will be heard.

If we’re unsuccessful, we shall appeal again.

My warm thanks to Ian, a retired solicitor, for his invaluable help in preparing my defence.

A collection of audio and video files relating to MGM can be found on our Vimeo channel – here. All the files are also on our YouTube channel – here.

Female social worker, 29, falsely accused of indecently assaulting girl, 9, when she was herself 14, claims she was reported by woman ‘jealous of her upbringing’

Our thanks to Nick for this. Women making false sexual offence allegations is #11 in Janet Bloomfield’s piece, 13 reasons women lie about being raped, but of course the victims – whose identities are revealed to the world, along with their photos – are almost invariably men.

What feminist marchers think we see… and what we actually see.

Our thanks to Male Lives Matter for this. If you place the curser over the image, about halfway up on either side, you’ll be able to access further images.
