On Monday, porn star Ron Jeremy was hit with 20 new charges of rape or sexual assault involving 12 women and a teenage girl, on top of the charges he already faced for allegedly raping or assaulting four women.
As plausible as these charges against a man infamous for regularly groping women in public may look to you and me, the charges have been met with everything from skepticism to outright derision by Men’s Rights activists, who rarely run across rape allegations they aren’t ready to dismiss as false.
“It seems like a setup,” wrote one Reddit MRA in response to the original charges announced some two months ago.
[T]he man use to film three to four movies a day, no one would invite a man known as “The Ass Master” over to their house to hang out one on one without expecting sex.
“[H]e works in porn so he will obviously would have boinked some women,” added another Reddit MRA.
It’s like suing someone for groping you because he had to do CPR on you, and accidentally touched you on your breasts.
Well, no, it’s not like that at all.
But the strangest theory about the accusations I’ve run across in the Men’s Rights subreddit came from a fellow called omegaphallic, one of Jeremy’s most vociferous defenders. According to him, the accusations are part of a plot hatched by evil feminists who hate Jeremy because he’s not hot enough for their tastes.
“The Feminists have HATED Ron Jeremy for decades,” omegaphallic declared.
[A]nd the feminists in porn having been gunning for him, they wanted him out of the industry because he isn’t the gorgeous stud they demand out of Male pornstars,
Wait, what? I was not aware that the world’s feminists had a position on the minimum gorgeousness of male porn performers.
[H]e fuck above his Station, has gorgeous woman asking to have their boobs autographed, and yet he looks like your savage overweight working class Joe. So I’m not surprised about these BS accusations against him. They won’t rest until he is ruined.
Meanwhile, over on the Incels.co forums, one commenter has a similar theory.
“Ron Jeremy’s only crime is that he is not a Chad,” a regular commenter called Metabuxx wrote in a post today.
Ron Jeremy isn’t on trial for being a rapist. He’s on trial for having the audacity to fuck many women despite being a subhuman.
MRAs and incels, two sides of the same shitty coin.
