Typical journalism from a sexist media. So why can't males be role models for females? Sexist pathetic excuse making female journalist. This vile woman is on the borderline of wishing for Eugenics!


Dear Sirs,

I would like to formally complain about the outrageous sexism in Amanda platell's article about the new boy prince.

Article here:

For her to insinuate that females cannot be inspired by male role models is discriminating and sexist, she is airing pure misandry at the fact this child was born a male and the whole article has overtones almost touching on anti-male Eugenics.

If you reversed the gender of this article you would be facing accountability to the press complaints commission. Which is where I intend to go next if this article is not withdrawn and an apology made to the Prince and to Males in general for this nasty hateful piece of "Journalism".

Join in people....


Amanda platell a woman so stupid that in her feminist misandry and hatred towards males, she goes on to talk of female role models and how great they are:

Well Amanda here is a quote from Queen Victoria, one of those "lionesses" you look up too and mentioned, that you might be interested in.

"“I am most anxious to enlist everyone who can speak or write to join in checking this mad, wicked folly of ‘Women’s Rights,’ with all its attendant horrors, on which her poor feeble sex is bent, forgetting every sense of womanly feelings and propriety. Feminists ought to get a good whipping. Were woman to ‘unsex’ themselves by claiming equality with men, they would become the most hateful, heathen and disgusting of beings and would surely perish without male protection.”

Yeah I think she would be a good role model for women like you too;-)


Yet another lying female civil servant scrounging off work, yet another woman pared jail....AGAIN.

Amanda Platell sometimes writes things I, for one, strongly support. We're currently working on proposals for abortion law reform for our public consultation document, and she wrote an interesting short article on abortion for the Daily Mail recently:

I didn't care either way what the sex of the royal baby was (although I was expecting it to be a girl, certainly that's where the general trends in the media were going), but having read some of the feminist reactions to the birth of a royal baby boy, I can't help but being glad that it is. Anything that upsets feminist bigots is good for me!


Update: An apology from the Mail for Misandry
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us here at the Daily Mail.

None of us would claim to be right all the time and criticism is always regarded as both valuable and constructive.

I am sorry if you thought that the recent Amanda Platell article on the royal baby was sexist. The Editor has always taken the view that his columnists should be free to say what they think, rather than be censored, in Stalin-like fashion, and made to toe the party line.

Ms Platell holds strong views and they often give rise to debate. I shall discuss your letter with her so that she is aware of your dissension.

As a reader of the Daily Mail, I’m sure you’ll agree there have been countless positive stories involving the Royal Family.

Please accept our sincere apologies if some stories in the Mail have angered you. I can assure you that the intention was not to offend.

Yours sincerely,

Managing Editors’ Office,
Daily Mail

Letter not signed by person (what a surprise) but email address it came from was:


You would agree with any woman that would curry you favor in your personal political pursuits Mike.

There is a simple way to decrease abortions. Make NHS abortions only available for rape cases, medicinal cases or where genuine mental health is an issue, by that I mean downs syndrome etc, not some depression.

THEN make all women PAY for abortions out of their own pocket. Why the hell should the tax payer burden the irresponsible lifestyles of women?

They are the ones who keep claiming "my body my choice" then fine..your body...your responsibility...YOU PAY FOR IT.

Mike Buchanan

Derek, thank you, but I honestly have no idea what you mean by:

"You would agree with any woman that would curry you favour in your personal political pursuits Mike."

Perhaps you could explain what you mean? For the avoidance of doubt, I've had no exchanges with Amanda Platell, in any form.

You then write:

"Make NHS abortions only available for rape cases... "

How would this judgment be made? A woman could claim rape, but given it would usually take some - maybe many - months for a trial and possible conviction to happen, the pregnancy could be well advanced (or the baby born). Or would a mere allegation of rape suffice? If so, what would stop any woman wanting an abortion to claim she'd been raped? At the moment 98% of elective abortions are carried out on the 'risk to woman's mental health' grounds - effectively, abortion on demand.

The way I see abortion is based on a root-cause analysis methodology. Put simply, prior to sex, women have plenty of education (probably more than men), they have far more choices when it comes to contraception - some of which are discreetly hidden and rely on female trust - and, therefore, women enjoy virtually 100% visibility when it comes to sexual intercourse (they can see what the man is using but she has the power to deceive!
They also (supposedly) don't have such an appetite for raw sex (unlike men who are made out to wear their brains in their pants and think about perverted acts of sex every 9 seconds or so). And to top it all off, women know from the outset that it is their bodies that will have to carry the baby - hers (AND HIS). Oh, and I nearly forgot that everyone knows that you can screw a guy, get pregnant, then dump him and claim lots of money in the form of maintenance!

So, better education, less motivation towards sex, more choices of contraception, better visibility, and full knowledge that any mistake means SHE will be carrying around a baby for 9 months that he would have to pay for for at least 18 years?

That pretty much smacks of having more power and control over a situation if you ask me!

So with that much control at women's fingertips, it makes you wonder how women could get themselves into such a mess in the first place! And then play the victim card and expect an abortion without giving even the faintest glimmer of sympathy towards the male side of the story. Who cares about men, huh!

It's yet another topic which is massively geared around the protection and rights of female only!

Men have got to start wising up to this, they really have!


Good points Dave, I like the bit about "Visibility" of contraception, good way of looking at it that I bet many men are not even conscious of.

Mike Buchanan

Dave, your analysis is spot-on. When it comes to reproduction women have all the rights, and only the responsibilities they choose to take on. Men have no rights, and can be forced to take on responsibilities e.g. paying 18 years for a child who resulted from a women 'forgetting' to take the contraceptive pill, or something even worse e.g.:
