I've read a few times people view the show a misogynisitc, however I'm wondering why?

He's always the first to lay into any man who abuses,degrades his partner.

and often chimes its better to be alone than in a bad relationship, so I was just wonder could you clue me in on what I'm missing ?? :/

On the very rare occasions that ive actually watched this shit,i have noticed that when its a young woman that hes talking to that may have had multiple partners, he tells her to "respect herself" and not to give it away so easily and to use protection.
When its a young man that may have had multiple partners,he just tells him to use protection!

I don't like him or his style but of the shows I have seen one thing he does is tell people to take responsibility of their actions and he holds no quarter for irresponsible/violent men or women for that matter.

Because you shouldn't act irresponsible/violent. Jeremy simply reinforces that point

Haven't watched it for years, but I'm pretty sure I remember him victim blaming... May be wrong though.

He encourages paternity testing in front of millions on TV.

And as much as I hate linking to the Daily Mail, this article might answer a few questions

He encourages paternity testing in front of millions on TV.

What's wrong with that?

TheCrackFox Thu 08-Sep-11 19:04:18

It is complete exploitation of the child (a real human, with feelings) for TV ratings.

edd1337 Thu 08-Sep-11 19:06:43

He does it for free does he not? Some people cannot afford one

TheCrackFox Thu 08-Sep-11 19:10:44

Well they should save up for one.

He is paid millions to exploit vulnerable people some of who quite clearly have mental health problems.

DontCallMeFrothyDragon Thu 08-Sep-11 19:14:27

If he wanted to do it for "decent" reasons, edd, he'd set up a clinic. Not do it on national TV.

TheCrackFox Thu 08-Sep-11 19:16:15

Yes, Jeremy could start his own charity and start confidential DNA testing. Not, I repeat, not, do it for millions of pounds on national television.

I would gladly donate just to get the fucker off TV.

edd1337 Thu 08-Sep-11 19:33:44

Fair points there. Though setting one up privatly for charity would be tricky without being paid to go on TV. Without the tests there would probably not be a show

MitchiestInge Thu 08-Sep-11 19:33:58

do children have to consent to the test?

I had the misfortune to watch it the other day and he sympathised more with the poor fat waster bloke for not being the father over the girl that had turned to his brother for comfort after he'd attacked her.

DontCallMeFrothyDragon Thu 08-Sep-11 19:47:22

That's the episode I meant RVC. I knew I wasn't imagining it...

HeifferunderConstruction Thu 08-Sep-11 19:52:33

There was one a few years ago where a man had battered his pregnant wife, and admitted to it on air. He brought the wife out and laid into her for snogging a bloke at the start of the relationship, and JK said, 'see, there's right and wrong on both sides'.

He is a twat.

Did he Address the DV??

HeifferunderConstruction Thu 08-Sep-11 19:54:40

I'm usually of the opinion that if ur in a bad realtionshipthe wasted energy deleved to cheating would be better spent trying to escape it?

and also it the rel. is dv the consequnces can be fatal why would you risk it? I always end up thinking that when I watch it

MitchiestInge Thu 08-Sep-11 19:55:46

it's not anonymised either is it? or do they somehow protect the identity of the child in some other way?

haven't really thought about this before

HeifferunderConstruction Thu 08-Sep-11 20:00:03

thet ususally beep out child name i think ...(could be wrong)

ChardonnayGirl2 Thu 08-Sep-11 20:02:12

I actually know him through a friend - he is a prick in real life folks! shock

J.K. and his ilk exploit people for entertainment while presenting themselves as the custodians of moral rectitude.
At least Jerry Springer was blatant about it and the results were often hilarious.
