About Mike Buchanan

I'm a British men's human rights advocate, writer, publisher, and the chairman of a political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I launched a campaign in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business.

Mike Buchanan’s second Regarding Men weekly Zoom video meeings – The Humour Group

Featured

I already host a weekly meeting for the estimable people behind Regarding Men – “the three professors”, Paul Elam, Janice Fiamengo, Tom Golden – a 90-minute-long men-only Zoom video discussion at 2pm GMT/BST (as appropriate) on Sundays. The meetings are one of the highlights of my week, they’re always interesting and often great fun. Brits are usually in a small minority, interestingly. Today only 20% of the attendees (including myself) were Brits. Others included a man in California (6am) and Melbourne (2am). It’s a little-known fact that MRAs can survive on only three hours’ sleep a night.

I’m pleased to announce that the three professors have agreed to my suggestion of a second meeting at 5pm GMT/BST on Sundays, titled “The Humour Group”. The group is for creators and enjoyers of humorous material, regardless of the form it takes – video, audio, print, cartoons… – anything that can be considered amusing. For the avoidance of doubt, you don’t need to have created anything humorous to join us. I look forward to meeting you on Sundays at 5pm, it should be a gas.

Boris Johnson’s historic offer to the American people

Not a lot of people know this, but prime minister Boris Johnson and I have long been firm friends. We had some cross words over his recent ill-judged video about a gender-balanced House of Commons, but we got through even that. During a recent boozy dinner in 10, Downing Street, he explained he wanted to make an offer to the American people, which I’ve just committed to video, hopefully accurately, here (14:01).

Netflix: The Queen’s Gambit

I’ve just logged onto Netflix to end my day with a series I like to end my days with, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, starring Jerry Seinfeld. It’s an uplifting series, even if you have to skip over episodes with woeful feminist “comedians”. Netflix are promoting a new series, The Queen’s Gambit, the trailer featuring a sassy young women entering a chess tournament. Doubtless she’ll annihilate the expert male players in the series, because women are very strong in works of fiction.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, chess is the perfect example of how women reliably fail to compete with men at the highest levels, regardless of the nature of the competition, decade after decade. It’s something I analyse at length in my forthcoming ICMI talk with the snappy title, Buchanan’s Laws of Inter-Sexual Competition: Women Fail to Compete Successfully Against Men, and Why They Will Always Fail. It’s currently scheduled for publication at 08:00 on 14 November. Most of the talk was filmed in my principal summer residence, Buchanan Castle, near Loch Lomond in Scotland.

How attractive are feminists who wear dungarees? Andrea Dworkin v construction site workers.

Feminists mess everything up, including dungarees. This is Andrea Dworkin, a particularly repulsive American radical feminist:

In stark comparison, this is a small selection of typical dungaree-wearing construction site workers:
