Has anyone seen this? Do we laugh or cry for him?

I'm so disappointed in him.  I always quite liked Mark when he was on radio.  Generally seemed like a decent bloke.

He's right that men's suicide rate is an issue and needs targetted funding.  But Virginia Hausegger is correct in saying that b**ching about other people getting funding is not the way to get that happening.  Sounds like Mark might have been sniffing at the red pill trough.

Life is hard being a white, heterosexual, middle class male. So much oppression. So much under-representation.

"When you're used to privilege, equality feels a lot like oppression". It once again goes to show how much white hetero men wail that they are being persecuted if they aren't being centred in the narrative at all times.

It's his ilk that cuts funding towards suicide and mental health.

Exactly! That is what is most galling of all.
