“The domestic violence ads do the same thing, they demonise little boys. They depict a small, 8-year-old kid running around and wrestling. Somehow those boys are incipient wife bashers, are incipient rapists. They haven't even gone through puberty yet.”

“What I enjoy most about these ads is the insane reaction it brings out from people like who get so upset that we're targeting toxic behaviour. Just because you talk about toxic behaviour doesn't mean every man out there is toxic.”

“I don't know why men should be subjected to this vilification. There are just as many bad women as there are bad men. I think it is an insidious movement, making little boys feel bad, that their masculinity is a disease.”

"What happened yesterday was a kind of just a big "no" with no sense of where any possible "yes" might sit. It doesn't really give Theresa May much ammunition to go back to Brussels with.” on Brexit
