Tim Goldich Interview: The Glass Escalator

I am Geoff Fox, a former midwife, and now a dissident MRA in Australia.

On June 19 this year, I renounced my Australian citizenship in writing to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. It is now late November and “ScoMo” has not yet replied.

The following is an interview about this situation with Tim Goldich, the president of the Chicago chapter of America’s National Coalition For Men.

GF: What does the fact that ScoMo has not even responded to my renunciation of Australian citizenship say to you about care for men in The West?

TG: It is in keeping with a general drought of compassion toward men.

Currently, women are so powerful, and draw so much empathy, that men’s issues are completely ignored.

In the realms of gender advocacy, gender issues, gender politics, gender anything, there is feminism on the one hand and on the other hand there is . . . . . . . . . . nothing.

GF: What would you like to say to ScoMo about his failure to respond?

TG: I would say: “I get it that you don’t want to be the sole politician in Australia that speaks of men’s issues. It may seem to you that responding to male concerns is akin to political suicide, but infinitely catering to feminism is societal suicide.

Exactly zero women out there are complaining of an over-abundance of confident, ambitious, successful, high-earning men.

Man can only pour from his glass half “full” into Woman’s glass half “empty” for so long before you get Japan—a society in which 1 in 4 below the age of forty has never once had heterosexual sex.”

GF: ScoMo has said “We want to see women rise, but we dont want to see women rise on the basis of others doing worse.” How do you rate this statement compared to other national leaders’ positions?

TG: Given the gender-political climate, I think Mr. Morrison’s sensible comment was extremely brave. I deeply hope that he can survive it. Much will depend on whether or not others back him.

I believe Mr. Morrison is attempting to draw a line on the multiple Glass Escalators feminism has put in place in their efforts to force “equality.” Which is to say, female-only “equality,” which is not equality at all.

Perhaps Mr. Morrison glimpses the big picture here and realizes that when women “have it all,” men are left with too little to be significantly and long-lastingly desirable (as lovers, as spouses, and as parents). In other words, men become increasingly superfluous and that’s how Japan ended up with a population of male “grass eaters” that ignite little passion in women.

GF: In 2016, I was arrested by police and silenced at election time while a female politician, of whom I was critical, was reelected and protected by the threat of 2 years jail from any comment by me about her.

The woman is now mayor of Maribyrnong …….. I am still suffering from subsequent PTSD ……. In your view does that constitute the rise of a woman by pushing me down?

TG: In a word, yes.

In the U.S., affirmative action quotas, 1,027 federally funded female-centric organizations of all kinds, scholarships, grants, billions of dollars devoted to the emotional, professional, domestic, and scholastic wellbeing of women plus enormous societal pressure to hire and promote women all Glass Escalator women.

Compare that with males—scholastically sabotaged, homeless, and imprisoned by the millions—and yeah, I think it’s fair to say that women are advantaged at the expense of men.
