About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    It’s good to know the risks. One is simply recent consumerism in the celebrity-fed desire for a “perfect wedding”. One is the continued gender expectations for men to “breadwin” for women with this now ignored or considered “oppression” in a modern day “big lie”. Very real is the risk of divorce and the inability of the courts to enforce the marriage contract or protect the partner not wishing or responsible for breaking of the contract( partly because we appear to have lost sight of the fact that it IS a contract). Also real is that the contract is poorly defined, hence the needs for pre nups, with the result there are widely differing interpretations from courts. Finally the general popular consensus places much the same expectations on men as in the previous century. With no support to carry them out. I’d be interested in how J4MB can formulate policies to address these. Family as institution remains the chief support to democracy and is consequently the chief target of the “isms”. Should J4MB campaign against marriage or campaign to reform it?
