Another week another daft article in the Guardian (here). This time, Moira Donegan (author of the Shitty-Media Men spreadsheet), argues that we are in an antifeminist backlash that is silencing women. Opening the discussion with the defamation lawsuit brought against Amber Heard is not a good place to start if you want to make that… Continue reading Moira Donegan
(Lynchings used to start with a MeToo moment) In 1955, in rural Mississippi, Emmett Till was accused of whistling and staring at a white woman -Carolyn Bryant Donham. Subsequently, Emmett was abducted in the dead of night and driven off to be lynched. After he was tortured and shot in the head, his body was… Continue reading The Lonely Death of Emmett Till
Critical Theory is the thought system that makes toxic feminism – toxic. According to that theory, knowledge is socially constructed and the narratives of the most powerful are what constitute accepted knowledge or truth.

(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

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. However, in reviewing the subject and looking for root causes they might also… Continue reading Shrewsbury- A Feminist Scandal?
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. Before entering politics Jess was a business development manager for the Women’s Aid Federation and she still appears… Continue reading Jess Phillips Again
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*
The book, Men Who Hate Women, written by Laura Bates, sets the bar low when it comes to defining what hate is. 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?
Just a little place filler that recapitulates a previous post on mine on virtuous victim signaling being part of the dark triad of personality traits that include, narcissism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism – see post here. 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
