Natasha Devon: Behold the mythical ‘Anti-Feminist’!

I was intrigued to be alerted this afternoon to an interesting article published in the Independent a couple of weeks ago. It was penned by Natasha Devon and titled, “Behold the mythical ‘Anti-Feminist’!”

A google search led me to Ms Devon’s website http://www.bodygossip.org/ where I’ve just left the following comment:

Natasha, good afternoon. A supporter has just pointed me towards your article published in the Independent on 1 August. The Anti-Feminist you describe is indeed ‘mythical’:

The much hyped – but never empirically witnessed – Anti-Feminist is of course a man. He reads lads’ magazines and not only believes the women within its pages represent a paradigm of ultimate beauty, but that all other women should look and dress like them.

More interesting than mythical Anti-Feminists (AFs) are real AFs. In a number of developed countries there’s a rapidly growing number of men and women who self-identify as AFs and men’s human rights advocates (MHRAs) and support organisations such as my political party Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them) http://j4mb.org.uk and the associated Anti-Feminism League https://fightingfeminism.wordpress.com and Campaign for Merit in Business http://c4mb.wordpress.com. The following is a minute cross-section of blogs and websites of interest to AFs and MHRAs:

Should you ever wish to write a substantive article concerning anti-feminism and/or the men’s human rights movement, please feel free to email me (mike@j4mb.org.uk) or call me (07967 026163) and I’ll do what I can to supply information, or direct you to others who might help. In the meantime I’ll put up a post about your Independent article on our blogs, along with this comment.

Best wishes,

Mike Buchanan

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.
