Recasting male heroes as women risks driving boys to crime, claims Tory MP | Politics

Casting women in TV and movie roles beforehand given to males, such as in Doctor Who or the James Bond franchise, risks main younger males into crime as a result of the one cultural position fashions left for them are criminals, a Conservative MP has argued.

Leading a Westminster Hall debate about worldwide males’s day, Nick Fletcher stated discussions about women’s security, such as after the homicide of Sarah Everard, risked reaching nothing due to a deal with the thought of poisonous masculinity.

Citing statistics displaying poor male outcomes in areas such as college attainment, employment, suicide and tough sleeping, the Don Valley MP stated males and boys wanted higher position fashions, together with male lecturers.

In tradition, Fletcher argued, “there seems to be a call from a tiny yet very vocal minority that every male character or good role model must have a female replacement. One only needs to consider the discussions about who will next play James Bond to see that. And it is not just James Bond: in recent years we have seen Doctor Who, the Ghostbusters, Luke Skywalker and The Equalizer all replaced by women, and men are left with the Krays and Tommy Shelby [a character in the BBC drama Peaky Blinders].”

He continued: “Is it any wonder that so many young men are committing crimes? Such programmes make crime look cool.”

Fletcher stated parliament “operates like a pendulum, swinging from left to right as it continually struggles to correct wrongs and injustices”, and it had gone too far when it got here to males. He added: “Some may say that men have had their turn, and it is women’s turn now.”

Describing the “awful events over the past year in which the victims have been women”, Fletcher stated there had been an excessive amount of deal with the thought of poisonous masculinity. “Yet again we have to ask ourselves: ‘Who does this help?’ I have an answer: no one. How will this situation make boys and young men see themselves? Poorly, that is how.”

He stated he was “not really a fan” of days like worldwide males’s day, which happened final Friday, however added: “In recent years there has been a creeping narrative that males have it easy; that their life is a breeze and there is nothing to complain about.”

In a subsequent tweeted statement, Fletcher stated his “rather nuanced point” had been misconstrued. He stated his argument “in no way linked Dr Who [sic] being a female to crime being committed by men”.

Another Conservative from the 2019 consumption, Blackpool South’s Scott Benton, stated through the debate that males’s points had been “swept under the carpet for far too long as society focuses on the false narrative of male privilege”.

Benton stated: “The very mention of men’s issues will have hypocritical virtue signallers seething as they try to condemn white men as oppressors.”
