(A tale of me – me – me feminism) Feminists like to claim that men are narcissistic and fragile. This is little more than a throwaway jibe that is seldom backed with evidence. If you look at articles in newspapers written by male and female journalists, a different picture begins to merge. The criteria for… Continue reading The gender ‘I, Me & My’ gap
The complex story of Emily Bridges Media feminists are feeling a little sorry for themselves over the threat posed to female athletes by competitors who were formerly male. The most recent of these cases in the UK is the cyclist Emily Bridges. In May 2021 Emily finished 43 out of 45 male riders in the… Continue reading Trans Athletes
A recent review of maternity care at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals has shown that it may have contributed to the death of over 200 babies and nine mothers. Commentators have rightly pointed to this as a failing of the National Health Service.

Here is another excruciatingly bad performance from Jess Phillips during the Intelligence Squared Debate on the current state of the Labour Party. It is not for nothing that Jess is known as the Ian Paisley of feminism.

It was predictable that as the horrific events in Ukraine unfold, femsplainers in the media would be claiming that wars would not happen if the world was run by women. Putin’s actions were even attributed to toxic masculinity by a few commentators. This comes hot on the heels of the now thoroughly debunked claims that… Continue reading Female Leaders and War

Any disagreement with feminist orthodoxy; or any men’s rights advocacy, is sufficient evidence. As a result, people who manifestly do not hate women are sucked into her divisive narrative. Examples include Warren Farrell,… Continue reading Women Who Hate Women?

I am sure we can all think of numerous media feminists who fit into this toxic stereotype. This YouTube video… Continue reading I’m a Victim
The subheading of my last post, Lit Crit Femsplainers was ‘the diversity problem that nobody is talking about‘ – Now I realise that this is not quite true and a better subheading might have been ‘the diversity problem that almost nobody is talking about.’ That person who is talking and writing about the problem is… Continue reading Diversity in the media
A Diversity Problem That Nobody is Talking About I have written elsewhere in this blog about the overrepresentation female English Literature Graduates, from Oxbridge in particular, in our media. Most of these journalists have pronounced feminist leanings. See The Feminist Glass Escalator, Laura Bates and the axis of radicalisation. For an amusing account of how… Continue reading Lit Crit Femsplainers
It is commonly assumed that women in the public eye face more abuse and those dishing out the abuse are men. As always, the evidence is mixed. That is why this story caught my eye (click here for a full account). In a series of emails, Sundas Alam (female) threatened Bradford West’s Labour MP Naz… Continue reading Abusive women
