    An excellent idea. Both in getting feedback but also giving key important facts in the process. Simple and effective. Well done.

  2. Nigel says:

    Maybe a version for individuals to fill in could be linked to IMD too.

  3. The Pigman says:

    That was easy, you just put everything at 10.

    Major points are missing: “Ending the criminalisation of male sexuality”

      Hi James, could you explain what you mean by “Ending the criminalisation of male sexuality” – where in UK law is male sexuality criminalized and what action do you thin should be take to address the issue? Thank You

  5. james says:

    Also points “Improving men’s health and life expectancy” and “Beating male cancer and tackling men’s cancer inequalities” are the same thing. They could be replaced by “Putting an end to false rape/harassment allegations and to peadohysteria”.

  6. Peter Leckie says:

    James, I believe that what you are saying is that male sexuality – male heterosexuality – is frowned upon and ‘closed down’ by being dismissed as sexist and misogynistic – a good example would be that women are cheered on when they organise a visit to say The Chppendales, but men are threatened with dismissal if they were to organise a visit to a lap-dancing club, within hearing of a work manager. Whilst it isn’t ‘criminalised’, it is virtually outlawed by women who have either real or exaggerated outrage at expressions of male sexuality – but male homosexuality or female sexulaity expressions are validated and endorsed – please confirm i have read you right?

      Thanks Peter – whatever the issue is (any issue) campaigners need to articulate these issues in a way that the majority of people can grasp otherwise no-one (or very few people) will listen

    I have made an action with 200 other men. Tired of seeing women’s hypocrisy invading men’s places of interest & excluding men from women only establishments we have started a public online men only club. It is only a little protest but all these men want equality for men in LAW. Bias in all of our legislation must be removed along with any who continue gender discrimination. So we have made this simple act toward educating men to say NO! No we don’t accept being second class citizens NO we don’t accept being legislated out of life and means.
