Why William Has Cancelled His Subscription To The Telegraph

By It’s been many years since I subscribed to the Telegraph, and I only read it occasionally in the library, never buying it. It’s a shadow of its former self, and reliably takes a feminist line on gender issues. So I wasn’t too surprised to hear from William that he’d cancelled his subscription to the paper, a perfectly rational response to a dire article by a ‘profeminist’ man – Rob Okun – about the recent release of an audio file of comments Donald Trump made in private 11 years ago. We’d love to hear what Hitlary says about men in private.
Okun’s profile, from the end of the piece:

Rob Okun is editor and publisher of Voice Male magazine, and a former executive director of one of the earliest antiviolence, profeminist men’s centers in the U.S. A new edition of his book, Voice Male: The Untold Story of the Profeminist Men’s Movement is due out next year. [At long last! Alternative title, Manginas: A History]
A member of the steering committees of North American MenEngage, and the Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities, he can be reached at rob@voicemalemagazine.org.
In the months leading up to the 2015 general election a number of Telegraph journalists attacked J4MB and myself, and in the comments section in each case there was strong support for us. So I’m not surprised that this article doesn’t offer the opportunity to comment.
