If the central tenet of feminism is equality then what mens/boys causes have feminists championed recently?

Anything? Someone? Anyone? And this despite the fact that: 1. Men are continually being called upon to support and intervene in situations where women are in a situation of real or imagined disadvantage, and 2. There are many areas where the support of women’s groups and individual women would be invaluable, as demonstrated in the following … Continue reading If the central tenet of feminism is equality then what mens/boys causes have feminists championed recently?

How feminists misrepresent the gender ‘wage gap’

Some people call the notion of a gender pay gap a ‘myth’, but it does in fact exist. A certain mythical element arises however in the way that feminists blatantly misrepresent the pay gap to support and advance their peculiarly jaundiced view of the world. You see, feminists would have us believe that women earn substantially less than men for … Continue reading How feminists misrepresent the gender ‘wage gap’

Every year both men and women and girls and boys are raped. Rape is never OK. There is also a very significant and growing incidence of people falsely accusing others of rape.

Every day we hear another feminist scorning those who query some or all aspects of feminist ideology because, you know, feminism is just about … Continue reading Are feminists truly committed to equality for all women and girls?

On boys and education

I would suggest beginning your exploration of this very important topic by viewing this video. Next I’d recommend reading this more recent article. Then perhaps have a look at http://www.city-journal.org/2013/23_4_boy-trouble.html, and particularly the comments contributed by readers. It’s about the trouble many boys experience in school, and what one feminist researcher sees as the key contributing … Continue reading On boys and education

To feminists ‘equality’ is just a marketing ploy to get what they really want

The contemporary version of feminism is not a movement devoted to achieving equality – as its proponents so vociferously claim. There are many areas where feminists have achieved policy and legislative changes that have swung the balance of power very much in favour of women, and yet they still argue for further reforms on the … Continue reading To feminists ‘equality’ is just a marketing ploy to get what they really want
