Walking for Men & Boys in London – September 12th 2020
MWWT had its first outing with many other groups in London organised by Sally Burris, Founder of Split the Difference.
The purpose was to raise awareness on the inequality of choice and opportunity for men and boys. Some of the areas that profoundly neglect the rights of men and boys are evidenced in Health – Court Processes – Education – Domestic Abuse – Suicide – Homelessness, the list is endless, the evidence clear. This cannot continue and we intend to deal with these issues through parliament.
Think for a moment if we lived in a society where women suffered from:
Family Courts – if mothers had no legal right to equal custody of her children after divorce. Would this be tolerated by society ?
Homelessness – if women formed 87% of rough sleepers yet little or nothing was done to help them. Would this be tolerated by society ?
Domestic abuse – if despite forming over 40% of the victims, services for women were neglected especially in the provision of safe houses with adequate places for men and only virtually no places for women. Would this be tolerated by society ?
Suicide – if women formed around 75% of suicides a year compared to men forming 25%. Would this be tolerated by society ?
Cancer – if 10,000 women a year died from breast cancer which is around the same for men who die from prostate cancer and yet only a third was spent on breast cancer research compared to that spent on prostate cancer research. Would this be tolerated by society ?
Girls education – if working class white girls are at the bottom of the pile in the UK and yet there are no specific programmes to improve their achievement. Would this be tolerated by society ?
Judicial system – if the system is penalising women due to the introduction of the Bench Book which was introduced in 2010 and updated in 2020 which encourages the Judiciary to give men lesser sentences than women even for the same crime. Women have to endure appalling prison conditions whilst men enjoy comfortable conditions which are designed to fully re-habiliate them and prepare them for life when they have finished their sentence. Would this be tolerated by society ?
Sexual abuse – if women could be accused of sexually abusing a man without any evidence and her picture and name appearing in the newspapers whilst the man is protected with full anonymity. If he is found to have made a false accusation, and there was no comeback for him and the woman is left to rebuild her life without any recourse to justice or compensation. Would this be tolerated by society?
Media and women – if there was daily dripfeed against women in the media where women are ridiculed for being “female, pale and stale”, or guilty of “womanspreading” for spreading her legs too wide. What if a man designed a chair which forced her to keep her knees together. Would this be tolerated by society?
The bottom line is that this is all happening to men
How much longer can all this go on before Parliament and society appoint a Minister for Men who will address all of these issues. Men have been turned into second class citizens whose only purpose in life is to undertake all of the dirty and dangerous jobs and put their lives on the line when war breaks out. Even this can have a doubtful outcome for men when they can be accused of war crimes which go back 50 years and there are cases of men in their late 70’s dying from terminal diseases and still having to appear in court. Must this be tolerated by society ?
MWWT demands change, full equality for men with women and the appointment of a Men and Equalities Minister whose task it is to address all of these issues.
Proposals for Misogyny to be a stand alone crime in Scotland – Misandry not to be included
Lord Bracadale’s 2018 report warned about the pitfalls of a specific misogyny crime.He wrote: “Although I agree that the essence of the conduct which we are seeking to cover is usually against women, it is not inconceivable that there could be hostility against a man (or non-binary person) based on their gender.
“I have some concern that an approach which focused only on hostility towards women would risk stereotyping (all) men as perpetrators and (all) women as victims, which I do not consider to be an accurate or helpful message.
“A human rights-based approach suggests that having a consistent approach which is capable of applying in equivalent cases, regardless of the sex of the victim, is better.”
This assault on men is never-ending and the perpetrators cannot see that what they are practising is undiluted misandry. If this bill passes in Scotland it will be updated annually to the point where men will have to cross the road if they approach a woman in case he is accused of looking at her in the wrong way.
Full report on the NEW MILESTONE IN SCOTLAND – link
Men and women of Scotland need to unite to fight for a Human Rights approach for the new bill.
A similar Bill is going through Westminster but is does include Misandry. We will need to keep an eye on it. No debate took place on the 1st reading and it moves for a 2nd reading in October 2020
