Skimmington, good evening, and thanks for this post. Along with TROM, 'Justice for men & boys' is VERY interested in the issue of all-women shortlists. Indeed, without them, we might well not exist.

I worked as a consultant for the Conservatives (2006-8) and in late 2009, when Dave announced his plan to introduce all-women prospective parliamentary candidates ('PPCs') to select candidates for the forthcoming election, I resigned my party membership and wrote a book, 'David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman?'. I thought visitors to TROM might enjoy the cover cartoon I commissioned from Martin Honeysett (who I'd admired for 40+ years) of Dave and his feminist mistress, Harriet:

And the outcome of the 40% law? We know it will mean incompetent management boards.

And we all know the reason behind that. The 60% that will be men will have been oppressing the female minority by preventing them realizing their true abilities. Clear abuse!

Only one answer. A new 100% law of women only. Management positions will be off-limits to men. No more abuse!

And feminist equality applied to its full.

The issue of providing special assistance to give women opportunities to occupy areas where they are under-represented doesn't appear to have an equivalent programme aimed at males.
I have the misfortune to be spending the next few months attending a large city hospital out-patients department.
What has struck me, as I pass anything up to 4 hours waiting, is the vast numbers of female staff. Sitting, as I do in various parts of the hospital it seems that some 99% of the employees are female.
How come public sector organisations have a public duty under the equality act which, if my observations were reversed, in gender terms would see job adverts welcoming under-represented females and a host of other special measures but absolutely sod all for males?

Why i can understand pointing out children in this shocking outrage, why are women pointed out? are men less worthy of note?

Women and children? Children, evil and despicable but women, why should anyone care more because they are women?

It may be that, as Skimmington complains, this particular aspect of anti-male political chicanery has not been picked up with anything like sufficient vigour by the mens equality movement. But I believe it has been well noted by many men - and women too - at grass roots level, and has generated a great deal of resentment. Nobody knows how much that resentment has expressed itself by voting patterns in those constituencies where the electorate has been presented with female candidates who owe their position solely to the fact that they were born with a vagina. More's the pity. But I have a pretty strong gut instinct that many votes are thereby lost by the party that is stupid and spiteful enough to embrace the policy.

If they bring these quota candidates on, then we can vote them down. Maybe then the penny will drop.

BTW I have always referred to people who get elected on the back of discriminatory shortlists as "quota" MPs, or "QMPs" for short. I would encourage everyone else to use the same terminology. It will remind us all that they are of lesser merit than properly elected MPs, and also remind THEM that they have not fooled us with their dirty tricks.

Good post. I believe the next parliamentary session is going to be a very productive beneficial time for the men's rights movement.

The establishment figures have had their fun and some feminist half-wits have got some publicity with their pathetic little campaign on bank-notes.

But now we have a chance to demand REAL equality. If we take the opportunities which
are there then the establishment cronies will not be able to ignore us for any longer.
