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.

    So only fat, undesirable guys are being targeted here (see link), not the guys with slim torsos who provide women with eye candy!

    I have to agree that men walking around half-naked, stripped to the waist in public is rather uncouth and ignorant. They normally fall into one of three categories:

    1. The vanity guy – a show-off, big-headed twat who doesn’t realise that to most people he looks like a complete knob who should put his shirt on.

    2. The low class guy – usually an uneducated person with little interpersonal skills and no prior guidance on etiquette. Often linked with behavioural problems or immaturity.

    3. The “I don’t give a shit” guy – to this guy, life is all about them. They are the me, me, me type. Excuses are “I’m hot” or “I want an even tan”. They have no concern for others and usually have a stubborn or selfish streak.

    So I kind of agree that there is a time and a place for men to take their shirts off. For example, guys who walk around supermarkets and shops with sweat pouring from their hairy nipples and armpits. Or the guy who gets on the bus with no top on and squashes up against you – gross! And then there’s the workmen who think they are well-ripped who decide to expose their six-pack to your wife or girlfriend just to grab her attention and piss you off! Then there’s the bare-chested guy who walks into a pub/restaurant for a pint while you’re tucking into some food and really don’t need such a sight for sore eyes.

    I’m a ‘keep your top on’ kind of guy – back garden, swimming pool, beach. That’ll do thank you very much.

    I welcomed the news in the link above until I realised it only applies to fat guys that don’t appeal to women. Yet another double standard that smacks of feminist intervention. Can you imagine a sanctioned ruling based around male acceptance which imposed clothing restrictions on ugly women but permitted good looking ones? Thought not!
