Theresa May plays the race and gender cards

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in June 2016:

We didn’t have to wait long for Theresa May, our new prime minister, to play the race and gender cards. Shortly after arriving in Downing Street to take on the role of prime minister, after her visit to Buckingham Palace, she gave a short speech. I’ve highlighted two sentences in yellow:

If you’re black, you’re treated more harshly by the criminal justice system than if you’re white.

We rarely touch on race issues, but the following would certainly have been true, though Ms May declined to state it:

If you’re male, you’re treated more harshly by the criminal justice system than if you’re female.

Then the gender card – the gender pay gap, one of the most frequently discredited feminist narratives. The reasons women on average earn less than men are well understood, and have nothing to do with anti-female discrimination:

If you’re a woman, you will earn less than a man.

We were expecting Ms May – a woman who infamously posed for photographs whilst wearing the Fawcett Society’s ‘This is what a feminist looks like’ T-shirt – to show her true colours very quickly, and she has.
