Feminism is heading for a crash landing

I sometimes think of feminism as like a hot air balloon. The only thing keeping it up is hot air, and there’s a big problem if the balloon starts to get holes in it. For all the hot air spouted by angry feminists, the men’s human rights movement is relentlessly blasting holes in their balloon, and the balloon’s losing altitude. How long before we see the balloon’s crash landing? I don’t know, but I do know there’s a historical inevitability about it. As long ago as 1913 Ernest Belfort Bax, a socialist philosopher, revealed in The Fraud of Feminism that the true aim of feminism was extending historical female privilege yet further:


A movement based upon visceral hatred of half the population can’t be sustained indefinitely. 100+ years is more than long enough.

I was reminded of the balloon metaphor by a very intriguing piece just published by ‘A Voice for Men’, on the absence of feminist contributors to a recent debate:


Feminists are increasingly aware they have only two choices:

– debate with men’s human rights activists – many of whom are women – and reveal themselves as the misandrous ideologues they are, incapable of engaging in a rational exchange of views; or

– decline to debate, and thereby have all their decades-old narratives challenged to destruction

Whatever they choose to do, the result will be yet more holes in the balloon. I hope feminists are preparing for the inevitable crash landing…


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.
