fengi: (Mr. Fengi)
The forums of Men's Rights guys are a seething mass of misogyny, full of revenge fantasies and tacit to open advocacy of violence. Alpha Male is a favorite word, a way to signal allegiance to the cause when used with certain rhetoric.

Elliot Rodgers was a men's rights guy, a resentful "incel" and self proclaimed alpha male. His language, tone and internet behavior all reflect his connection. Even his alleged hate of pickup artists was fury at their methods not working; the PUAhate group he belonged to was full of violent misogyny.

The persistent undertone of violence of men right's types is undeniable. Paul Elam, leader of a Voice For Men, started an enemies list site, which included personal information, and described his mission this way way:
I find you, as a feminist, to be a loathsome, vile piece of human garbage. I find you so pernicious and repugnant that the idea of fucking your shit up gives me an erection...We are coming for you, and we are coming for all the liars out there that have been ruining people’s lives with impunity...You are SO fucked.
Men's rights inspired violence is an ongoing pattern. One example: Darren Mack, who murdered his ex-wife after and tried to kill the judge on his divorce case was a rabid men's rights activist who was represented by father's rights crusader Dean Tong (who tried to distance himself after).

Now it's happened again and they are all pissy that people are accurately observing over the top internet tough guy talk about making women pay is intrinsic to the movement and the only thing they do consistently despite pretending to care about other issues. Boo hoo. That's your bed boys, lie in it.
