Laura Bates lies AGAIN!!!

[Note added 4.10.14: A link to the government statistics which prove that Laura Bates’s claim was a lie is here.]

[Note added 11.10.14: Some time after the BBC programme was aired, we discovered the name of the young man who challenged Laura Bates is Owen Davies, a student. We’ve released his name with his permission.]

Two nights ago, on a BBC3 television programme being broadcast live, we witnessed something quite remarkable. Laura Bates – The Everyday Whining Project – lied again about the number of women being killed by partners and ex-partners – the very lie which led to her Lying Feminist of the Month award. Even more remarkable was that a young man in the audience called her out on her lie, referring to our public challenge of her, to which she still hasn’t responded.

Even by BBC standards, the programme Free Speech Live was very anti-male – ironically, given the title of the debate was, ‘Do we live in a sexist country?’. The panel consisted of four people – three women and a male comedian. One of the women, Angela Epstein, is a non-feminist, while the other three people are feminists. The (male) presenter was feminist-friendly. The vast majority of the studio audience were women. The piece started off with photographs and short video pieces from women only – hardly surprising, given that the BBC had solicited materials only from women. The whole programme couldn’t have been more sexist – anti-male.

We’ve loaded the debate onto our YouTube channel – here. We’ve added some commentary and identified the points when Laura Bates lied (twice, within the section 1:26 – 3:50). The undoubted star of the show was the young man in the audience who challenged Bates about her lie, at 2:39. We take our hats off to him, challenging a prominent feminist in a deeply hostile anti-male environment. Two other young men in the audience made some points, one of them mentioning MGM, but they were ignored.

The best critique of the programme we’ve read so far is here. It catalogues the many areas in which British men and boys suffer from sexism, none of which were mentioned in the BBC programme.

    I guess it might read better that way around but it is meant I believe to mean one can be living in a normal and reasonably functional society but given enough propaganda and enough false information people can be made to believe what they have is actually completely wrong despite any logic or truth. Ergo; some in the feminist community would have you believe that any act of sex between a man and woman is rape, that the world is controlled by a misogynistic patriarchal elite of men hell bent on the subjugation of women. The truth is that’s all baloney, but I am sure given enough lies and mis-information and enough people to believe in it you could be led to believe it is all true. Hitler did a pretty good job with that mentality for a while but, alas for his followers …..the truth is the truth and the truth always outs in the end.
