Man Boobz readers would like to offer support for A Voice For Men’s doxxing victims in Toronto


A Voice for Men has doxxed another student who was at the Warren Farrell protest at the University of Toronto. Her “crimes,” aside from going to the protest? She posted jokey comments on Twitter and a picture suggesting that it’s a good idea for people to get consent before having sex with other people. The Men’s Rights hate site has pledged to reveal the information of as many (female) protesters as they can find, and place them on, its phony “offenders registry” which features feminists targeted by AVFM alongside convicted murderers and child molesters.

Readers of Man Boobz, in Toronto and around the world, would like to offer whatever support they can — moral or practical — to the targets of AVFM’s hate campaign. If you are one of the victims, or know how to get in touch with one of them, please contact me at futrelle [[at]] well [[dot]] com and I will pass their messages along to you.

EDITED TO ADD: If anyone has any messages for Sophia, the latest victim, I have a way I can pass them along to her.  Just email them to me, and let me know if you want me to pass your email address along to her as well. Anything you want confidential will be kept confidential.

  1. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    It comes to one thing, Tracy. They hate women, and they hate anyone who supports women. Not just feminism, though they like to pretend it’s feminism (or rather, their strawman version of it) that they’re complaining about. No, it’s basic hatred of women, the desire to punish us, not just for not being their domestic slaves and fuckdolls, but simply for existing. Being female in public, let alone daring to complain about anything a man says or does, is enough to bring out their frothing rage. I don’t know if you’ve read any of NWOslave’s comments here, but he’s one who thinks women should be beaten in the street for … well, anything at all. And he’s not the most extreme example. Everything else just follows from that basic loathing.

  2. Wow I didn’t know this was going on! I hope these women are safe. This is absolutely terrifying to me.

    Is there anything that can any of us can do for them?

  3. hi Manboobz community and David.

    I would like to take this time to point everyone towards some unlikely allies, especially helpful if this Toronto Weirdness gets bigger. I don’t know what everyone knows about the left wing, or specifically Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, but they are hardcore feminists. The are down for queer and trans liberation and socialism. Regardless of what you think about What Mao Did in China, these people are friends of the working class, the oppressed, and especially those under attack from the hard right MRA asses.

    I’m not affiliated with prac in any way, and I don’t mean to speak for them. In the spirit of full disclosure, I am a communist. :) Smash Patriarchy with marxism,


    Ps, I expect this to go to moderation – that’s fine. I’m hoping this info goes to David first and foremost, and maybe if the women under attack would like it, send it to them?

  4. I’m no fan of Mao, and I hardly think that the political philosophy that led to tens of millions of deaths and some of the world’s most twisted dictatorships is going to help out anyone, male or female. But, what the heck; I don’t like to censor so I let that comment through.

  5. To be fair, the idea that the agrarian classes shouldn’t allow others to control them didn’t kill anyone. The practice of controlling the agrarian classes under the guise of liberating them did.

  6. wait david do you mean maoism or marxism?

  7. Preggo: Oh, I was wondering how you guys measure intelligence. I’m fairly certain it’s not based on one’s independence or marketable skills (both of which Davey and many of the regulars here lack), so then how do you rationalize your intelligence? I’m not even trying to be hurtful or snarky, I really am curious how you try to write off yourself as “better” than the people you hate. I know a helpful and constructive answer on a social justice blog occurs once in a blue moon, but I’m feeling lucky.

    Could you learn to lie a little better? If you aren’t trying to be hurtful, or snarky, then why marry this, “innocuous” question to an attempt at insult (both of which Davey and many of the regulars here lack).

    You already tried to poison the well, quite apart from the operation from ignorance you’re working under.

    1: You’ve implied intelligence = marketable skill. That’s not true. Ditch-diggers have marketable skills. So do street sweepers, and garbage collectors. Those are not jobs the society thinks need intelligence.

    2: You don’t know what marketable skills people have. The best you can manage is an inference of their level of employment; which, given the present state of the economy is no marker of marketability.

    Most places I would post this would be able to infer I was joking and get the “for great justice” reference, but I guess in social justice blogs people are too stupid yelling at each other about ambiguous phrases and telling teenagers to kill themselves to think.

    Most people of average wit would realise they weren’t being taken seriously; i.e. they were being mocked.

  8. regardless Chuck, myself being a Marxist, I would ask that no one advertise their political groups here unless things get dire, it’s just a bit tacky, no one is coming here to join a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist study group

  9. Is yelling fire in a crowded theatre jokey? Are death threats jokey? Is publishing comments wishing men dead jokey? Authorities dont consider them jokey. Neither should you. There is freedom of speach but there is a line and she stepped over it. People have been arrested for what she said. Just has happened in Australia last week. That person said no more than this woman did.

  10. Sweet Kropotkin, not the RCP!

    “A zombie is moaning across North America. The decaying, braindead corpse of Maoism.”

  11. bev: Context. Is saying, Mayonaise is satan’s spooge, and all who partake of it must be purged in FIRE! jokey?


    Think about it.

  12. Argenti Aertheri

    Lol, pecunium, while I agree with your point, you’re on the wrong thread.

  13. No, condiments are appropriate everywhere… :)

  14. Argenti Aertheri

    *spreads some ketchup on the thread* What do you know, trolls do taste good with ketchup! :)

  15. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Okay, bev, do you go onto MRM sites and tell them to stop making death and rape threats against women, or to stop wishing women dead? What do you think would happen there if you did? I can tell you: you wouldn’t get jokes about condiments, you’d be abused and threatened yourself, for being female.

  16. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Vegemite! I want Veggie with my troll!

  17. Argenti Aertheri

    “Is yelling fire in a crowded theatre jokey?”

    That depends on whether you’re yelling a scripted line or not…you learn not to take things for granted when you work backstage :)

    In relevant things, bev, you do get that the standards of allowable speech vary from country to country right? (And that Toronto isn’t in Australia?)

    pecunium — I totally missed bev’s comment and thought you were replying to the mayo discussion. *returns to the corner of shame*

  18. The theatre example demonstrates that you understand context.

    Have you considered the context that this woman is very unlikely to be in a position to kill all men, whereas if we were the kind of people who’d do that, pretty much any able-bodied man could if they decided to go and rape one woman.
