That’s the name of a blog run by what is regarded as one of Australia’s most prestigious newspapers.
How long do you think a blog at a mainstream media channel called ‘All Women Are Liars’ would last?
It’s very disturbing to find that a prestigious newspaper such as The Age sees no problem in promoting and maintaining a blog called ‘All Men Are Liars‘. It’s also surprising that The Age doesn’t recognize that running headlines such as this only serves to diminsh its credibility.
This has been run for years by a man named Sam de Brito. It appears that he’s using the provocative title simply to generate traffic to his blog. He claims that ‘all men are liars, except Sam de Brito’.
Does having a blog called “All Men Are Liars” seem like nothing much to be upset about?
Suppose that a blog called something like ‘All Women Are Liars’ was run. How long do you think it would last? There is no doubt that the publication would have been inundated with negative publicity and demands from women’s groups to have it renamed or removed. It would surely have been deemed as inappropriate, degrading and an assault on women’s dignity.
But if it’s men who are targeted then society turns a blind eye.
Such negative and derogatory messages about men are prevalent in western society and the cumulative effect on mental health for men and boys can’t be dismissed.
First, we need to acknowledge that such messages are unacceptable.
