UK: It's very bad time to be a man

Article here. Excerpt:

'Yes, that’s how it feels to be a man in today’s increasingly hostile climate. The inflated outrage over misogyny in Parliament feeds into the simplistic and inaccurate stereotyping of men as universal perpetrators, and women as perpetual victims. It feels as if the issue has been hyped up as part of the current campaign to make misogyny a criminal offence.

Male MPs - with an old fashioned sense of chivalry and shame - will no doubt want to 'do the right thing’ by their offended female colleagues, to do that would be to improve their own behaviour. However we should also consider the equally unpleasant reality of ‘misandry’ - the dislike of, or contempt for men, and prejudice against men.

Let’s look at the facts.

The paradox of Parliament is that while there is a Minister for Women, there is no Minister for Men co-ordinating a response to the male suicide epidemic, or giving men’s health issues meaningful representation in the House.'
