Reading an article on Shetnews, it reminds me that the blame for all ills, seems to be placed , with White Middle-Aged Males. As one myself, I feel ill done by.

Does this not smack of Racism and Sexism and Ageism?  Perhaps it time commentators, were more careful of how they word things. It certainly dies nothing to help their cause(s).

 

How do you feel about it?

They should go live in the middle east or Africa for a few weeks and see what a real male patriarchy is all about .

Well, it's not very PC to say this, but can it be coincidence that Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Michael Gove, and Vladimir Putin all fall into this category? :)

It does rather seem as if all the woes of the world are laid at you door step. Thankfully British men have shoulders broad enough to bear all that is thrown at them, without bearing grudge and with good humour - what more could you ask of a man.

How dare you assume their gender and ethnical identities. :twisted:

 

They maybe all identify as genderless green toasters from a rare otherwise undiscovered race who reside on the dark side of Uranus......or maybe not. ;-)

Don't forget we are also the "beneficiaries of slavery" .

 

This would have been news to my great grandfather as he and his family (including my grandfather) were turfed out of the family croft to make way for the laird's sheep.

The Treasury’s tweet shows slavery is still misunderstood

In Morocco, our red-headed guide, said he was probably descended from slaves taken from Ireland or Scotland in the 1600's.

You should only be ashamed of what you've done. You didn't kill the last mammoth, or anything else before you were born. Just  because your'e white doesn't mean of the other 3 billion + humans can have a go at you.

@ George, I'm on about a link to the article referred to by the OP, not your link.
