J4MB barred from speaking at the University of Bedfordshire

It’s been over 30 years since I was a university student, but it appears that Student Unions have since become such important organisations that they now have Chief Executive Officers. Amazing. Yesterday I emailed beds.su@beds.ac.uk the Student Union at the University of Bedfordshire http://www.bedssu.co.uk which is centred in Bedford, where I’ll be standing as a prospective parliamentary candidate in 2015. I offered ‘a 30-minute presentation about the state’s ever-worsening assaults on the interests of men and boys’. I’ve just received the following email from the Student Union’s Chief Executive Officer, Michele Flynn Michele.flynn@beds.ac.uk:

Thank you for your email. This is not a proposal Beds SU has interest in pursuing.

Doubtless Ms Flynn consulted widely among both male and female students before coming to the decision to stop me giving a 30-minute presentation to students at her University. Or perhaps… here’s a crazy idea, but let me say it anyway… she didn’t?


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.

    It would be interesting to know whether she would accept an offer based on a gender switch. Perhaps you should have done that first (got someone to write a letter offering to talk about women and girls) and then turned up and talked about men and boys!
