By Robert O'Hara: Recently a pair of German academics, along with Men’s Rights advocate Arnie Hoffman, composed and co-signed an open letter containing bold criticism of Germany’s unchecked gender bias, which they addressed to that country’s news media. Hoffman, along with co-authors Professor Dr. Günter Buchholz and Dr. Alexander Ulfig, published the letter on January 9 on Hoffman’s popular Men’s Rights blog titled “Genderama.” The letter has been reprinted in several news outlets in Germany, as well as in other European news outlets and on Antimisandry.com, a men’s rights website based in the UK.
The letter, which attracted an additional 30 signatures, including those of a dozen credentialed academics and media experts, echoes many of the same criticisms concerning media bias that is heavily slanted towards feminist ideology that are put forth on a regular basis by Men’s Rights Activists worldwide.
Following is an English translation of this letter:
“For a balanced coverage policies on gender equality – Open Letter to the German Press”
Today Professor Dr. Günter Buchholz, Dr. Alexander Ulfig and I [Arne Hoffman] offer for the use of other websites the following open letter addressed to the attention of the German press:
We, the signatories of this open letter, are writing to you because we are concerned about reporting policies in German mainstream media on the subject of gender equality. For years, the public has been confronted, almost daily, with very one-sided articles on gender equality policy, most particularly on the topic of “the women’s quota”
