Welcome to The Real Untrusted
“The citadel of established practice seldom falls to the polite knock of a good idea. It may however yield to a long siege, a pre-emptive strike, a wooden horse or a cunning alliance.”
Ally Fogg writes in his latest offering (more about this later):
Even if some really nasty, racist, homophobic EDL organiser was being subjected to the kind of systematic persecution campaigns that have been waged against Sarkeesian or Quinn I would unreservedly condemn them.
Yet while I have never posted anything that’s even a mildly abusive on his blog, and I have a complete record that I’ve copied here, at times Ally Fogg has descended to the most abusive in his responses to posters like me, who challenge his presumed hegemony.
I see Ally Fogg is greatly admired by Mike Buchanan.
And who is Mike Buchanan? He’s an anti-feminist woman hater, who I’m surprised, given Ally’s penchant for censorship, is allowed on his blog.
Whiny Feminists of the Month – Laura Bates, Caroline Criado-Perez, Harriet Harman MP, Jo Swinson MP…
Fortunately the judge had other ideas to those of Buchanan – Two people who subjected feminist Caroline Criado-Perez to abuse on Twitter have been handed jail sentences.
Gormless Feminists of the Month – Fawcett Society, ‘Clean Break’ theatre company, Eva Wiseman, Yvette Cooper MP, Jessica Valenti
Eva Wiseman writes in the Guardian:
We know that these misogynists, who sneer online or grope on trains or kill, do not exist in vacuums. They are formed by cultures that glorify violence against women, that tell men they’re owed sex, that contribute to that background hum every woman learns to block out – every woman learns, early, to be at least a little bit terrified. We’re right not to ignore the emails, threats and comments.
And here’s Ally Fogg’s view on a serious article “Women of Britain, let’s form our own feminist party” by Ellie Mae O’Hagan in yesterday’s Guardian.
Believe it or not, it already exists. It’s called ‘Justice for Men and Boys’ and I’m not going to link.
And what I assume he intends as some kind of smutty joke humour:
I’ll happily push a wheelbarrow and be milked for sperm.
And who is Mike Buchanan? He runs the Justice for Men and Boys website.
How in just a few years can Ally Fogg change from being one of the Guardian’s main male supporters of feminism to become an outright anti-feminist like Mike Buchanan?
Backtothepoint on the Hamas execution, without trial, of 21 Palestinians accused of spying for Israel:
Yes, that was disgusting. Sometimes Hamas can be almost as barbaric as Israel.
I wonder if he includes these Israeli teenagers who refuse to accept the draft, in his racist accusation?

As from today – (sometime in early 2013) “A Change is gonna Come” and hence the track which is from almost 500, vaguely described as pop and rock, on my MP4 player that I use mainly when I’m running at the gym or outdoors, or when I’m doing things I rather not like ironing clothes, cleaning and so on. This one by coincidence comes top of the list when arranged in alphabetical order. Of course I’ll intersperse them with some great jazz and classical music.
