Gloria De Piero MP, Shadow Minister For Women & Equalities, Continues To Lie About The Gender Pay Gap. Chuka Umunna, Shadow Business Secretary, Joins Her. Nicky Morgan, True To Form, Makes Some Idiotic Comments

By Mike Buchanan: At the recent general election we attracted fewer votes than UKIP – a party which has been around for over 20 years, compared with our two years – but we ended up sending only one fewer MP to the House of Commons. We’re proud of that landmark achievement, at our very first general election.
I contested the Ashfield seat held by Gloria De Piero, Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities. In July 2014, before we’d even settled on the seats we were going to contest, Gloria De Piero won the first of her two Lying Feminist of the Month awards, for comments about the gender pay gap – here.
My thanks to Jeff for pointing me to an Independent piece showing the odious woman continues to lie shamelessly about the issue. An extract:

Ms De Piero said: “The Labour Party is urging as many people as possible to respond and call for an independent gender pay gap watchdog to monitor progress each year. If the Government is truly committed to making progress to eliminate the gender pay gap, they have no reason to oppose an annual ‘Equal Pay Check’ on their progress. Women have waited long enough.”

Sexual Feudalism: A History Of The Male Sex Role

By The gynocentric customs guiding relationships between the sexes originate in old Europe in the form of chivalry and courtly-love. The tradition began in 12th century France and Germany and spread rapidly to all the principle courts of Europe. From there it filtered into popular culture, being transported eventually to the new world on the wings of colonial expansionism – to the Americas, India, Australia and so on.
Why is this history important to men? Because it’s a history we continue to enact today, unconsciously, and its consequences for men have far reaching psychological implications.
In the medieval model men offered themselves as vassals to women who took on the status of overlords in sexual relations – this because women were widely viewed as men’s moral superiors. As evinced by the first troubadours, men pledged homage and fealty to women who actively played the part of man’s superior. This feudalistic formula, which I will tentatively label sexual feudalism, is attested by writers from the Middle Ages onward, including by Lucrezia Marinella who in 1600 AD recounted that women of even lower socioeconomic classes were treated as superiors by men who, she recounts, acted as servants or beasts born to serve them.
Many female and male writers stated this belief, including Modesta Pozzo who in 1590 wrote, “don’t we see that men’s rightful task is to go out to work and wear themselves out trying to accumulate wealth, as though they were our factors or stewards, so that we can remain at home like the lady of the house directing their work and enjoying the profit of their labors? That, if you like, is the reason why men are naturally stronger and more robust than us — they need to be, so they can put up with the hard labor they must endure in our service.”

Call To Action: The EU Is Out Of Its Mind Again

By : The European vacation is now done and the EU is back at what it’s doing best: coming up with insidiously insane bills to shove down the throats of the peoples of Europe.
And they have not waited too long. Before the vacation, the bureaucrats in Brussels were debating what is now called “The Rodrigues Report” (named after Liliana Rodrigues, Portuguese MEP from the Socialist group) and it seemed at the time that the bill will fail (as countless others on similar issues have).
However, just this week, a final version of the bill also called “Empowering girls through Education in the EU” has been forwarded to be put to a vote during the September 7-10 plenary of the European Parliament.
What does the bill say and what it implies
As usual with EU bills, what it says in the title and what it actually implies are two entirely different things. Also, as per the EU tradition, the devil is in the details.
The full text that will sit on the table can be read here (in English).
Even without reading the text, the bill is entirely out of place since education is not (and never has been) under the competence of the European Commission. In plain English – Brussels, by its own rules, treaties and regulations, can have no say in how the nations in the EU run their educational systems.
In what is legalistically called “reasons exposure” the bill makes a plethora of downright false statements as well as misleading or completely irrelevant statements.

The Assault We Ignore

A presentation given by James Chegwidden Barrister on 17th September 2013 at Keele University, Staffs, U.K. to the Genital Autonomy conference "Children's rights in Europe: recent developments". The presentation covers the current law surrounding infant male genital mutilation 'circumcision' in the U.K.

New Language Regime

On August 26 Donna Braquet, a gay rights official at University of Tennesse (she’s director of the Pride Center), suggested a new way to make their campus “welcoming and inclusive for all”: using a student’s chosen name and “correct” pronouns.
This is what she wrote on the university website:
“We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a roster or in student information systems. Transgender people and people who do not identity [she means identify] within the gender binary may use a different name than their legal name and pronouns of their gender identity, rather than the pronouns of the sex they were assigned at birth.”
Here’s how she thinks her suggested practice would work:
“In the first weeks of classes, instead of calling roll, ask everyone to provide their name and pronouns. This ensures you are not singling out transgender or non-binary students. The name a student uses may not be the one on the official roster, and the roster name may not be the same gender as the one the student now uses.”
Imagine how practical and time-saving this method must be…

Milo Yiannopoulos Quote Compliation

"The hideous BBC is a monstrous engine of liberal chaos.
...There aren't enough women in tech etc. I have always wanted to start a petition for heterosexuals on fragrance counters. Why aren't there more straight men selling perfume? It must be because of structural oppression and societies prejudices about what rolls men can take in society, mustn't it? After all that is the explanation for all the other absences in every other industry. ...I firmly believe god made me gay so that I could go for the jugular with feminists and I've got cover, an identity politics cover like a misdirection manoeuvre. ...I can stick up for straight guys the way they could never stick up for themselves."

Pay Gap? Women Earn MORE Than Men Till Their 40s: 20-Something Women Have Been Paid More Than Men In The Same Age Group Over The Last Decade

By Mike Buchanan: The piece I link to most in relation to the gender pay gap is one by William Collins – here – which showed that there is no gender pay gap between the ages of 18 and 40, despite two-thirds of public sector employees being women (72% funded by male income tax payers), and two-thirds of private sector employees being men (not reliant on a penny of income tax paid by women, nor men, for that matter).
Our thanks to Mike for this. For some reason known only to itself, the Daily Mail printed a comment from Sam Smethers, the Chief Executive of the Fawcett Society for the past four months. From her profile, on the Fawcett Society website:

Sam is no stranger to equalities work and issues having worked for both the Equal Opportunities Commission and the Equalities and Human Rights Commission.
What are the chances that Ms Smethers would have been a taxpayer-funded whine merchant? Her comments reported by the Daily Mail article relate to the gender gap appearing at the age of 40:

Votes For Women

Professor Janice Fiamengo from the University of Ottawa discusses how feminists have re-written history to exclude Male Suffrage from the public consciousness to such a degree that most people believe that all men always had the right to vote. Even university students and professors believe that men withheld womens' voting rights for thousands of years.
