I'd better not put my paws on that fluffy female whom I've had my eye on for some time; I could be charged with being a mysogynist as well as a male chauvinist (guinea) pig.

I've just learned from my son that there is a political party set up called Justice For Men and Boys.

Post  What's_up_doc? on Wed 29 Mar 2017, 11:30 pm

I've lived in Nottinghamshire for over fifteen years. There was  an incident involving freshers at Nottingham university singing pretty misogynistic songs and one girl complained - it was pretty tasteless and the university made an apology but other than that I'd say Nottingham is a nice place and behaviour is fine, it's generally an  'ey up me duck' and that's it. I think the whole hate crime thing is madness - one university professor reported Amber Rudd for a hate crime following a conference speech on imigration. A young female solicitor complained about on older man complimenting her on her profile picture. I think it's a nonsense and I don't think Nottinghamshire people are hateful!

It's good to hear from someone in the area.

It's nonsense to class minor incidents as misogynist. My son has written to the Notts police to say what he thinks about the policy - it was well-worded if I may say so as the proof-reader!

I hadn't until recently heard of what happened to Erin Pizzey, the person who set up the first domestic violence refuge in the U K. She was forced to leave the country after commenting that women can be violent and paedophiles as well as men.

I'm putting this link here though it's nothing to do with Nottinghamshire; supposedly it happened in London.

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/feb/22/why-a-viral-video-of-a-cyclists-revenge-on-catcallers-may-not-be-all-it-seems

It purports to show a female cyclist's revenge on a foul-mouthed moron in a van. Almost certainly it is a set-up with actors but it has produced the usual response from those with the attention span of a goldfish who can't grasp this fact and take it to be real.

What I find disturbing (apart from the stupidity of those who persist in saying it's real) is the view from many people that the cyclist was justified in what she did. I know that I have to be grateful that she didn't punch him in the face but I don't find criminal damage acceptable either!

This incident would definitely be classed as a hate crime in Nottinghamshire!

Alas, there is quite an element of reality in this!

I'll put this story here as it's one that the group which my son belongs to - Justice for men and boys - is rightly horrified about.

If anyone wants to know the name of the actress who made the claim, send me a PM. It's very unlikely that you'll have heard of her though.

I remember this case and can't understand how it ever got to court! Poor man.

The blame lies with the DPP - a woman, incidentally, Alison Saunders - for giving the case the go-ahead when it should never have been pursued.

From this it appears a Judge recommended the CPS drop the case, but the CPS ignored it and went ahead anyway. Bl**** unbelievable.

That darned actress has got away with all that scot free - she, and Alison Saunders should be brought to book.

I certainly think that, unless the actress was mentally ill at the time and really believed that the incident had taken place, she should face charges.
