Sorry, been a long Jubilee weekend (why don't the radical feminists hold up the Queen as a totem of 'girl power' - is it because she is good at her job and just gets on with it without crying out for special treatment at the expense of men?) so here is a few to go on with. Will be looking at the boardroom issue in the next few days.
Daily Mail - Men are the grimier sex (Tamara Cohen)
Daily Mail - STD fears as 70% of single women have unprotected sex (Graham Smith) and the day before it was sexually transmiotted disease the fault of men. Good spot by Ian about consistency.
Economic and Social Research Council - UK children need more male befrienders
Institute for Economic Affairs - The gender diversity delusion (Mike Buchanan) - Mike recommends reading the comments section.
Safer Lancashire - County Councillor David Smith pitifully and wrongly tries to justify why a publicity campaign on domestic abuse does not include men as well as women.
Daily Mail - Dame Butler Sloss admits women have been chosen to be judges on the basis of their gender (Jack Doyle) - The cat is out of the bag just as it was here - proof that discrimination is now taking place against men in the boardroom and in the legal profession. But then Erica Rackley comes along in The Guardian stating that Butler-Sloss' comments are unhelpful - obviously because it uneermines the case for special treatment. Rackley has a book coming out - obviously will be a diatribe calling for special treatment for women and therefore discimination against men.
BBC News - Are men really more unfaithful than women (Fiona Woods) Another myth busted
The Guardian - The men who do women's work (Kevin Powell)
As one commenter says about his statements that have no evidence behind them:
And as these males enter female-dominated occupations, sexism and gender privilege follow: men even earn more than women in these once-taboo fields for males."Wow. Any statistics on this one that anyone is aware of?"
The silence of domestic violence - new website about a man's experience of DV and the family courts.
Thank you all to those who sent links over.
