Men’s Rights Redditors team with PUA douchebag Roosh V to raise money for alleged victims of feminism

femfund

Men! Worried that eveil feminists will destroy your life and your financial future because, apparently, they have that power and love to destroy men’s lives for fun?

Fear no more, because Reddit’s Men’s Rightsers have your back! Mods of Reddit’s RedPill subreddit have started something called the Feminist Victims Fund, which will enable brave freedom fighters to send what will inevitably be a tiny amount of money to that dude who got fired after Adria Richards complained about a sexist joke he made, even though it wasn’t Richards who fired him and indeed she’s said she hopes he gets hired back!

Make sure you donate now, because Reddit’s MRAs will soon grow bored with this bold initiative and it will be completely forgotten, much like the massive Sink Misandry protest in Washington DC last year which actually didn’t even happen, come to think of it.

Here’s the pitch:

Feminism has caused some serious changes to our culture, to our society, and to our lives. We focus on some that are affected more than others, and we give back.

Our goal is to encourage men to speak out, to be men, to not fear oppression and enjoy their freedom of speech. Unfortunately in today’s climate, being a man has become a financial liability. Say the wrong thing in the wrong place and you can find your entire life ruined. Destroyed.

Feminists have fought for equality, but now they’re out for our rights.

They’re destroying us financially. They’re trying to tear apart our families.

We’re saying that enough is enough. No longer should men fear masculinity. No longer should speaking up risk a man his job, career, or family.

It’s time to rise up against the tyranny. It’s time to tell men it’s ok to speak up. We’re here for you. This is the Feminist Victims Fund.

Did I mention that you can donate using BITCOIN? In case you were worried that this thing wasn’t Reddity enough.

As Buzzfeed notes, one of the “board members” of the new fund is pickup guru and predatory douchebag misogynist Roosh V. On his blog yesterday, Roosh happily celebrated the harassment and vilification of Adria Richards in a post with the lovely title “American Feminist Adria Richards Gets Gang Raped By The Internet.”

Speaking of rape, Roosh is also the author of a booklet titled Bang Iceland, in which he admits that, well, he’s kind of a rapist himself. Buzzfeed quotes this rather revealing passage from the book, in which Roosh recalls a “date” he had in Iceland:

While walking to my place, I realized how drunk she was. In America, having sex with her would have been rape, since she legally couldn’t give her consent. It didn’t help matters that I was relatively sober, but I can’t say I cared or even hesitated. I won’t rationalize my actions, but having sex is what I do.

What a humanitarian.

Based on what I read in that timeless thread, NWO kinda of seemed like the sort of person who would poop their pants if Obama was re-elected (by which I mean he reminds me of the last guy I dated. I’ve stayed very single for the last year because I need to work on myself in a big way.)

I made zucchini quiche mid-last week. I peeled the zucchini before grating it. My preference. Those skin are still sitting in my kitchen garbage. Gross. That one’s for you, NWO.

Hey you all, thanks for the welcome! I probably won’t comment here an awful lot because I’m a little intimidated. I’m far to slow to keep up with you all!

I’m not going to attempt to circumnavigate the block quotes monster so if you want you can take a deep breath and..

@Marie, thanks for the welcome, queer chick to queer chick, you don’t ramble and it’s always a pleasure to read your posts. You are so much braver then me!

@The Kittehs’ Unpaid Help, I did my secondary school special study on your Hubby! Thanks for your welcome and let him know he got a very awkward thing through the worst of it.

@Hellkell, My dissertation is on the disconnect between actual mens issues and what they seem to believe are mens issues.Everything is a womans fault,which is a stance you all know. It all just boils down to.. LOUD NOISES!!!! My research has sort of taken me into the femras which is far more chilling.

My dad’s fiance ๐Ÿ™ Not noticeable most of the time, but when she is it’s ugh >:( And he’s going to move in with her in June. And if you try to bring it up around her she just keeps defending it, and then insisting she’s not being sexist.

Exs I can remember (paraphrased):
I’m not sexist, I don’t hateall women
I’m just saying boys and girls are different, I’m not saying it’s in a
bad way

Any advice anyone has to give is appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

Serious Irish catholic misogyny right here. My cousins father called her a feminist ballbuster just because she wants to double-barrel her surname. Refuses to walk her down the aisle because she’s having a civil ceremony not a church one. I feel you.

Cannonball, welcome & your research sounds fascinating/terrifying. Fascifying? Terrinating? Anyway, have some whiskey.

Marie, I like hellkell’s advice. Especially with family. Boy have I had to use that approach with my cousin’s husband on many occasions, starting with the dinner when I first met him where he raised a toast to apartheid. (And then was like, “Why are you so uptight? I’m just kidding.”) Once I realized he was really just doing the in-person version of trolling I decided to mostly starve him of attention.

@hellkell

thanks for advice. though sadly I’m not sure if it’s the kind I’m looking for. The problem is I’m not sure if she gets a rise out of it, she just ends up randomly saying something sexist and when me or my sister points it out she gets all defensive. Idk I’m rambling. I just wish everyone would hold hands and love each other.

I guess my main problem is I feel like to really trust people I have to be able to be myself around them. I mean, for example, here if someone says something douchey they get called out on it, and everyone doesn’t necessarily agree but people (or at least I) feel like I can speak up about it. It’s not so ‘this is the third time today she’s made gender essentialist comment and it’s really bothering me but I don’t want to start a fight.’ So I guess I just wish meatspace* were more like here XD Idk, I’m kinda sensitive. *shrugs*

My sister earlier said we should do mutual twin glare XD And right now when she was reading this. “Are we going to be following the wow advice? Because if so, we should practice our mutual wows so we can get the most scorn into each wow”

*who said meatspace? I like it better than ‘non-internet’ that I use. I can’t articulate why, it just seems like a better description. I mean, plenty of things are not on the internet XD

Boy have I had to use that approach with my cousinโ€™s husband on many occasions, starting with the dinner when I first met him where he raised a toast to apartheid. (

Wow O_o Sorry you have to be around those guys. Suddenly my family seems like saints, the most I have to deal with in that area is the ‘color blind’ brand of racism.

I will post guinea pig pics when I get them ๐Ÿ˜€ My mom and I took a couple with her phone but she hasn’t emailed me them yet, I hoping to take some better ones soon.

Imo, you aren’t butting in ๐Ÿ™‚ Are you out of church, or totally out of religion (or in a different one)? You don’t have to answer if you’d rather not, I’m just curious. Either way it’s squidgy sending you bible excerpts, not sure what he’s trying to accomplish.

That sounds like such nice first pet. <3 My first pets were fish XD (and I'm one of those fish-haters. Not when I had them, obviously.)

Derail: my mom got us a fish tank with three fish and a snail. The fish all died within a month but the snail lived for six more years. That was one tough snail.

Also, ew on your relative being in office ๐Ÿ™ It's like 'whyyyy' Good to know that you don't have to be around him that much though.

Also, reposting w/ my sister permission our conversations* on how to deal w/ it:

fade: We should just do that wow thing, or when she says something is a fact, say citation needed.
me: but I don't have glitter to throw when we say it.

fade: you should do that 'yeah right' sound you used to do.

Sadly, it's been a while since I did it, since I stopped when she said it bugged her XD

*because I am way too easily amused.

“Derail: my mom got us a fish tank with three fish and a snail. The fish all died within a month but the snail lived for six more years. That was one tough snail.”

Sounds like new tank syndrome — a fancy way to say you have ammonia and no bacteria to nom on it. Snails are far less affected by ammonia.

My big cranky plec is like 13~14, I’ve had him ~5 years, a old snail seems like a joy compared to a cantankerous foot like catfish!

Casual racism would be a good ability not to have. Same for the first one. I have not yet determined the usefulness of shooting rage cannon flames from the ears yet.
