At the World Conference of Science Journalists in South Korea, Tim Hunt, a British Nobel laureate biochemist said: “Let me tell you about my trouble with girls … three things happen when they are in the lab … You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry.” He also stated "I'm in favor of single sex labs" and he "doesn’t want to stand in the way of women".
As a result of these allegedly "brutal" and "appalling" comments about women, feminists forced him to resign from his faculty position at the University College, London. They have also forced his resignation from the Royal Society, where he had been a fellow. Lastly, they forced his resignation from the European Research Council where he served on the science committee. Britain’s academia and media were outraged over these allegedly 'oppressive' comments directed toward women.
Contrast this reaction with the reaction to comments made by a feminist diversity officer at Goldsmiths University of London. Bahar Mustafa used an official university Twitter account to tweet with the hashtag "kill all white men". She also used the account to tweet racial slurs at student activist Tom Harris calling him “white trash”. Except for a student petition, there was no mass calling for her resignation. Much of Britain’s media had no problem with her comments. In fact, Telegraph journalist, Jemima Thackray wrote an article defending Mustafa, claiming that "kill all white men" is not violent hate speech and men cannot experience sexism. British academia was silent on the issue. They made no calls for her resignation. Additionally, Goldsmith fully endorsed Mustafa.
Would Thackray be tolerant if Tim Hunt had tweeted "kill all white female reporters"? Would British academia be tolerant with Hunt if he had tweeted with the hashtag "kill all minority women in science". Not likely in either case.
In Britain, when a narrow minded female chauvinist racist advocates killing groups of men, no consequences occur. However, when a man makes a comment about working women falling in love and crying over criticism, he is forced to resign from his posts.
This is the same country in which a feminist author, Kamila Shamsie, recently demanded male writers be barred from publishing books in 2018. She wants only female authored books published during this year so that women writers will win more literary prizes and also to honor the 100th anniversary of UK women's voting rights. One British publishing company has already adopted her proposal. 'And Other Stories Publishing' will not print male authored books in 2018. The British media was not outraged by Shamsie's comments recommending discrimination. There were no demands for her resignation. There were no calls for boycotting her works.
Feminists are converting Britain into a female chauvinist state where advocating violence against men is condoned and males are policed as if they lived under a Soviet regime.
