The timing could not have been better, the juxtaposition perfect, the stark hypocrisy and double standards are out for all to see.
By Jordan Holbrook: Fat Feminists have been out in droves eating cake to show how much they love deriding men and to also prove how men aren’t actually being treated more harshly (and in turn, women more leniently) in the justice system. They’ve been outraged by Philip Davies MP’s comments at the International Conference on Men’s Issues – even Comrade Corbyn of the Labia Party has weighed in on it. How very dare a male talk about these issues like this!?
Yet, rather inconveniently, a rather startling story broke at the same time. This is a very troubling story that I feel needs some discussing.
Michael Mihalyfi was returning belongings to an ex-girlfriend when she set upon him with a knife, she slashed up his hand and left a 10cm laceration that required two operations to fix. He has been left with permanent damage and diminished use of his hand. His attacker? She was given an 18 month prison sentence, suspended for two years for unlawful wounding, as well as nine months for possession of a bladed article and one month for criminal damage, both to run concurrently. She was told to pay a victim surcharge of £100 and complete a 60-day rehabilitation action requirement.
