[TW] Canadian feminist activist receives rape threats, death threats and other abuse after being targeted by Men’s Rights Activists
(manboobz.com) - And so the MRAs have found yet another woman to hate.
Earlier this month, as many of you no doubt know, a Men’s Rights group sponsored a lecture at the University of Toronto. The event drew protesters, and the protesters drew MRAs with video cameras. One of the MRAs filmed a confrontation between a red-haired feminist activist and a number of MRAs who continually interrupted her as she tried to read a brief statement.
Her crime? She wasn’t exactly polite in responding to the interrupters. And so, after video of the confrontation was uploaded to YouTube, and linked to on the Men’s Rights subreddit and elsewhere, she became a virtual punching bag for the angry misogynists of the internet.
A Voice for Men, naturally, led the charge, running an article by Canadian MRA Dan Perrins labeling her “Little red frothing fornication mouth” and commenting on her breasts. The Amazing Atheist weighed in with a video I couldn’t bring myself to even watch.
Since being targeted by angry YouTube misogynists and MRAs, the red-haired activist has received death threats, rape threats and literally hundreds of other hateful and harassing messages. She’s also been “doxxed” — that is, she’s had her personal information plastered all over the internet, including on A Voice for Men’s forum. Ten days after being uploaded to YouTube, the video of her faceoff against the MRAs has garnered more than 300,000 views, and YouTubers are still leaving threats and insults and crude sexual comments.
This, apparently, is what “Men’s Human Rights Activism” consists of: the doxxing and harassment of individual women.
There are screen caps of several of the messages she has been receiving under the read more link.
Be warned, several of them are very triggering. This kind of thing needs to see the light of day, though, as MRAs like to pretend that this doesn’t happen.
THIS NEEDS MORE FUCKING NOTES
Any motherfucker who tries to defend the Men’s Rights Movement to me will be reminded of situations like this and others.
Because if a woman DARES to debate a man and tells him to rightfully shut the fuck up so she can get a fucking sentence out? MRAs respond with SEXIST names ( little red frothing fornication mouth??? ) and slurs, threaten her with rape and death, and release her private information to unknown and unstable individuals and groups.
LITERALLY their only problem with this woman was that she tried to debate some of them and got mad when they wouldn’t let her speak. She didn’t threaten them, tell them to get raped or anything else. She tried to make a fucking statement and told them to shut the fuck up for a second. THAT”S IT.
That’s what MRAs believe is deserving of such vile, violent, and dehumanizing behavior.
So, no, I do not give a fuck about the “poor menz” and I will continue not to give a fuck until I see the majority of men in this world slap behavior like this down and slap it down loudly, and publicly.
I am so sick of your fucking bullshit, men. SICK OF IT. Between this and the recent bout of teenage rape victims killing themselves because people continue to harass them with VIDEOS AND PHOTOS of their rapes while simultaneously telling them they were NOT raped?? I AM DONE.
I AM FUCKING DONE.
Don’t look at me. Don’t talk to me. I hate you.
Also the claims of “this makes it bad for women in the industry and sets feminism back” are bullshit
Men don’t need an excuse to shit on women and feminism. That much has been clear throughout history. And white people don’t need an excuse to shit on people of color.
gender discrimination were involved. What happened was like an accident, a collision. Intersectionality simply
came from the idea that if you’re standing in the path of multiple forms of exclusion, you are likely to get hit by
both. These women are injured, but when the race ambulance and the gender ambulance arrive at the scene, they
see these women of color lying in the intersection and they say, “Well, we can’t ﬁgure out if this was just race or
just sex discrimination. And unless they can show us which one it was, we can’t help them."

so why is it people still think it’s hilar to like, draw women who are accomplished martial artists hairpulling and slapping each other
worst pun ever
(guess who the three women involved were from that)
the best thing about it is one of the women involved dodges bullets point blank, was raised as an assassin from birth and decimated grown men when she was five and ripped out a man’s throat out when she was eight and is supposed to be the greatest. fighter. in. the. world.
but still gets used for a cheap “lol girlz are prissy fighters” joke
meanwhile, the person in the batfamily who resorted to hairpulling and biting in canon most recently is actually
why can’t we have ~hilarious~ commissions of that?
