... My own view is that people who encourage others to laugh at the savage
mutilation of males deserve a lot of heat. These people are also encouraging
violence towards men and, hence, between men.
This does nobody any good.
The directors of this company are just very greedy people. They simply
want to make money by making fun out of men being stabbed, and they are contributing to the
already-widespread notion that violence against men is something to laugh about.
So, are you actually going to do something about this sort of thing? -
perhaps by emailing them with your views?

very helpful women at Bromley police station after I rang to find out
what was happening.
Today (Tuesday Jan 17th 2005) I was contacted by a police officer at
Lewisham police station. He gave his name as PC Rush #525pl.
At first his attitude was typical. "Can't see a problem here mate!"
I chatted with him and explained my concerns. Among the things I
pointed out were these:
1. If this product was aimed at any other group in society there
would be an outcry. "Imagine" I said, if the product was described as,
"All Gays are B*stards" Or, "All Blacks are B*stards." He conceded that this would be illegal.
> At 11:58am (15 minis later) He called me back. He said, "I have
talked to people in the office and we cannot see where a crime has been committed here and so we will not be proceeding." I replied, "Are you telling me that even under hate crime legislation, you cannot see a crime here, despite the fact that the ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) guidelines point out that any group can be a victim of a hate crime if they feel threatened or abused by the behaviour of others?" He said, "Yes. I cannot see that a crime has been
... thus proving what ingratiating politically-corrected w*nkers are
UK police officers.
"All Police Officers are B*astards"
If I had the resources I would produce an 'amusing' poster or an
object with knives being stuck into a police officer and sell it with
"All Police Officers are B*astards" as a theme.
Then we'd see how they like it.
The truth, of course, is that most male police officers are too stupid and
too politically-corrected to see themselves as 'men'. They mostly seem to think
that they are some kind of superior beings - when they are, in fact, nothing of
Try telling a male police officer that all male police officers
are brainless idiots, and I can almost guarantee you that he will not look
But tell him that all men are brainless idiots -
to the same thing - and he will
"Stupid" is the word that keeps coming to my mind.
(Also see Organ Monkeys and Men Fighting Back
to see how police officers not only ignore violence against men but purposely
foment it. And this is why they are more than happy for hatred towards men to be
stirred up by other parties.)
[Summary of] COMPLAINTas described by the
Advertising Standards Agency ...
Objections, one via an MP, to an ad in a mail order gift catalogue,
featured in The Times and The Telegraph, for a knife block. The ad was headlined
"ALL MEN ARE BASTARDS KNIFE BLOCK" and showed a picture of the product
which was shaped like a man with several knives stuck in his body.
It was "shaped like a man", right? With "several
knives stuck in his body", right?
However, ... (my underlining) ...
[Summary of] ADJUDICATION ...
We considered the phrase "ALL
MEN ARE BASTARDS" to be a common and ironic piece of female humour, which was unlikely to be interpreted literally or encourage violent behaviour.
We also considered the item was labelled clearly as a knife block and possessed an unrealistic form, which was unlikely to be seen as a
man. We concluded that the ad was unlikely to cause serious or widespread offence, condone or encourage violence or be seen as demeaning to
So, the knife block was "unlikely to be seen as a man", even
though this is exactly how the ASA itself described it!?
I quote them ...
"and showed a picture of the product which was shaped like a man.
I should also point out that surfers who use Google often end up on
this page by searching for phrases such as "knife block shaped like man".
For another insight into how the ASA allows adverts that encourage violence
towards men (something which the ASA claims is UNACCEPTABLE and
must be stopped) take a look at Men Fighting Back.
I responded by emailing her professors.
Also see how I responded to one incredibly stupid woman who - like most
western women - has clearly been indoctrinated to hate men. I responded by
emailing her professors ...
Finally, if someone produced such a knife block with the figure
depicting a police officer or a politician being stabbed, it would be
banned immediately in the UK.
In other words, UK officials think that it is not acceptable to promote
the view that stabbing police officers or politicians is a funny thing to
do - because it might encourage violence against them - but they think that it is
quite acceptable to promote the view that stabbing
'men' is funny.
In other words, encouraging violence against 'men' is OK.
