Media Bias

The Independent: Leading article: Ignorance and denial still conspire to prevent action

You have to subscribe, or go out and buy a paper to read the whole article. Unfortunately the bits I quote are in the sections you can't read without subscribing.

A small example of the bias that slips into news reports. Men are almost always portrayed as the bad guys, and women as innocent victims.

"Hopes were raised this month that Pope Benedict XVI was poised to ease the Catholic church's opposition to condom use for married couples where one partner was HIV infected. This would offer crucial protection to women"

But not men? So women never have affairs? Never catch HIV?

Women are more susceptable to HIV infection than men, and at least as likely to commit adultery as men. Women are biologically programmed to be unfaithful. After they catch a 'good man' (sucker) to 'support them' (sponge off), the first thing they want to do is get pregnant by some bad boy. This is scientific fact - I don't make this stuff up (maybe I add just a little spin).

"the absence of female-controlled methods of protection is a key reason behind the growth of the epidemic."

Women can still insist on their partner(s) using a condom.

And besides that: Ever hear of the femidom ?

Welcome to my blog.

As you may have guessed, this is going to an anti-feminist blog. I'll probably use it mostly to vent, so be warned I could descend into a rant at any time.

I have tried setting up my own website before this, but my enthusiasm waned and I stopped updating it. It's still there ( Bad News ), but I won't be updating it except maybe the links pages. I think it was too ambitious for a one-man show, and a blog should be easier. We'll see.

Some of you might recognise me. I've made occasional posts on Matthews Antifeminism, CT4M and SYG as 'The Phantom'.

Felix: I have links to The Eternal Batchelor, Fred X and Davout already. Do you think I'm Duncan too?
