The Women and Equalities Committee is a government body Select Committee with oversight of the sexist Government Equalities Office, a sub-ministry to the Women’s Minister. By it’s name, it is clear that it is not much about equalities. What might not be so clear is that it is not much about women, either: it is Read more…

I’m now going to explain why women having the same retirement age as men is NOT equality. My proof for this is based on the United Kingdom but I believe much the same result would come from looking at any country’s data, other than Mexico.

Of course, the UK could start to fund men’s health programs in the way it does women’s. That would increase the average longevity for men and be a far better solution. In the meantime, let’s not pretend that women have been made to be equal to men in state retirement benefits: there’s still a gender pension gap.

Historically, matriarchies have never survived long. Most of those we do know of — like the Amazon warrior tribe — are fictitious. So what’s it like to be a man in such a society? For the 800,000 or more men belonging to the Khasi-Jaintia Scheduled Tribes of Meghalaya, they don’t have to wonder. Meghalaya (meaning Read more…

I’d like to continue with a thought experiment. I’d like you to imagine yourselves living in a patriarchy, and more specifically a patriarchy as envisaged by feminists, one in which men as a class oppress women and girls as a class, for the benefit of men and boys, as they have for millennia.

In this patriarchy, of course, women wouldn’t have the vote. Let’s further imagine that in 1967 an Act was passed, not the Abortion Act, but an Act that gave fathers of babies up to 24 weeks of age the right to have their babies killed by doctors at taxpayers’ expense, without fear of punishment. Mothers would have no right to stop the killing of their babies. In the 52 years since the Act was passed, over 10 million babies have been killed, and every year another 200,000 plus are killed. Fathers justify their right to have their babies killed with the slogan, “My baby, my choice”.

To those not well versed in the manner in which policy narratives have changed in the last dozen years, prepare yourselves for the radical revision of the meaning of the word “equality” which is now politically and judicially established.
Do not imagine that these are mere philosophical niceties without import in the real world. On the contrary, they have a profound impact on the lives of at least hundreds of thousands of people annually.
…But conceding the “gendered nature” of domestic abuse perpetuates the myth that domestic abuse is overwhelmingly perpetrated by men upon women, that women perceive the harm of such abuse far more acutely than do men, and that domestic abuse is specifically a tool used by men to maintain patriarchal power and control over women.
All these claims are refuted by empirical evidence…
This is lamentably by no means the only reason to be concerned that long-cherished principles of justice are now being overturned. But that’s another story and I’m out of time.

It used to be that socialism, particularly of the more strident Marxist brand, was always harping on about equality. Equality in those days, we were always assured, was equality of opportunity. Obviously that was rather unconvincing the more left you move in politics, since communism was overtly about equality of outcome. Regardless of your interests, capability and effort, you were not supposed to achieve anything, in any sphere, that benefitted just you. If you work hard, you work hard for everyone, including those who prefer to rely on your hard work.

Still, it was equality — of a sort. When you investigate even the call for equality of outcome, it is clear that is not really what it is about.

Politicians who stand up and demand equality, even for people supposedly in groups labelled ‘advantaged’, are increasingly harrangued by feminists and ‘social justice’ ‘warriors’. These decriers of equality want to implement a society in your nation on a model that is a proven disaster. History shows us that it will kill millions if they manage it. And they are doing well so far because most people are too little interested in human rights, or in human wrongs.

Trinidad and Tobago, where International Men’s Day began in 1992, is back on the headlines. Psychologist Dexter De Bellotte calls for safe spaces where men can talk about their problems.

A study of gender bias claimed that orchestras that held “blind auditions” favoured women. This has been cited hundreds of times as proof of discrimination against women. But what the report actually revealed was that blind auditions had a slight favour for men.

In a surprise move, the UK socialist newspaper Morning Star is asking socialists to directly oppose dogma that have been a part of left-wing/SJW/feminist policies for the past two decades or more.

Even when it comes to infidelities, stricter standards are applied to men than to women. The popular science magazine Psychology Today reports that research is suggesting that people may be more forgiving of women who cheat. For example, 49 percent of men and 53 percent of women said they would tell a male cheater, “You made a marriage commitment Read more…

The new Shell Youth Study, which says that today’s youth are more traditional in their ideas about work and parenting than “politics sometimes want them to be”.
