Male violence

What is a man, anyway?

If left-wing men are so appalled by their own privilege, why don't they just become more like women?

New Statesman: Ladies! Iain Duncan Smith is extremely worried about this country’s wife shortage

Can you please marry a dysfunctional, porn-addicted man already?

Independent: Stephen Paddock killing people in Las Vegas had nothing to do with ‘toxic masculinity

When ‘being bad’ is what makes you a real man for the purposes of a photoshoot, why should we be surprised when the same applies in real life?

Independent: There is a way to prevent so many teenage girls being depressed – but no one wants to admit it

Pity the girl who’s wearing a bra before she leaves primary school; already she’s ventured over the top, into a no man’s land of groping, cat calls and adult disapproval

New Statesman: Women-only train carriages are just a way of ensuring more spaces are male by default

We don’t need the “personal choice” to sit in a non-segregated carriage to become the new short skirt.

Independent: False allegations are rare – rape is not. Stop using the case of Jemma Beale to discredit all women

If there were thousands of Jemma Beales out there, there’s little doubt in my mind that we’d know about it. But there aren’t. Right now there’s only one, which is why we know her name. Meanwhile the names of most rapists will be forgotten.
