bb2183ec-bfad-434b-a2e3-276e1ad22bd6It had seemed for a while that the blatant sexism of FHM, lad culture and Page 3 was on the backfoot and falling out of favour. Recently however the emergency of ‘comedians’ such as Dapper Laughs and the vile pick up artist Milo Yiannopoulos have given fuel to emerging men’s rights activists (MRAs). Does this represent some kind of backlash against the gains made by feminism and if so what is causing it, and what does this mean for my research?
