About this blog

This UK-centred blog will take a sceptical approach to feminism by challenging the selective vision, or confirmation bias, of some feminists who choose to view the world through victim-tinted lenses.  In particular, the selective world view held by some ultra-privileged media feminists that enables them to promote their victim status over all men, whatever their background and station.

If you are looking for somewhere to indulge misandrist ideas please go somewhere else – the Guardian for example. If you want to post misogynist abuse you are also part of the problem and this blog is not for you.

I fear this blog will be viewed as an exercise in misogyny because according to some people there is no such thing as a good-faith objection to any aspect of feminism. So, let me say that a life without female company and female work colleagues would be a life grossly diminished. In my work, I was fortunate to have male and female mentors and in the later stages of my career to be a mentor to many incredibly talented men and women. It is quite possible to criticise feminism from within this frame of reference. 

Another problem is that questioning feminism is viewed as right-wing. This is unfortunate. The failure of liberal and progressive newspapers to take a more nuanced view of these issues makes it more difficult for left-leaning parties to achieve power and influence. My affiliations are on the left of the political spectrum.

I was abandoned by my parents in the black mountains and raised by timberwolves. On my return to the 'civilised world' with questionable table manners, I became a detached observer of human behaviour in general and gender relations in particular. This blog is the product of those observations.
