Fighting feminism: a practical and political fight

One of the contributors of comments in response to my recent IEA blog was Michael Klein, and we’ve since had an exchange of emails. Michael is a German Anglophile – I was pleased to discover we share an admiration for the novels of Jerome K Jerome – and now lives with his wife in the UK. He studied economics, political science and science of science, worked in a number of fields, and 12 years ago started a business of his own, giving scientific advice on economics and social sciences.

He runs a blog titled ‘Kritische Wissenschaft’ which translates as ‘Critical Science’. The URL is I asked Michael to explain the objectives of the blog, and he replied:

Critical Science (a German language blog) is dedicated to fight abuse of science. This is why Genderism is a regular topic on Critical Science, since Genderists like to use science to cover their bare bones with royal garments. We expose their attempts to appear scientific by exposing their ideological basis. However, it is not just Genderists entering our radar, it is all those authors who use a scientific setting to promote their sometimes strange ideas, without even knowing what science is all about. Science, to us, is a method to approach reality, sample information, test information and come up with results that others are able to test on their own. Critical Science is a liberal blog subscribing to Hayek’s and Friedman’s Economics as well as Popper’s Critical Rationalism.

Michael’s blog includes a post about the distortion of data by EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding, who seeks to show there is popular support in Europe for positive discrimination for women. Michael has kindly offered to translate the piece into English for followers of this blog, and I shall post it upon receipt.

Michael asked me to pen an article on the topic of fighting feminism, which of course I was delighted to do – although other people have been fighting feminism for much longer than I have – and he loaded the article onto his blog, adding a few kind words of his own:

My thanks to Michael Klein for his contributions to the fight against militant feminism, and for helping raise awareness of our fight outside the UK.


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
