WASHINGTON - Anti-feminism posters were plastered across campus of American University and university police are investigating the vandalism as a hate crime.
Pictures of the fliers posted on campus were tweeted out and posted on Facebook. One of the fliers posted had an image of a man in a suit and it had a message using an expletive in telling women to “stop talking” and “make me a sandwich.”
Images of person of interest believed to be responsible for posting anti-feminism fliers across campus at American University. Police searching for person who posted anti-feminism fliers at American University
The university called the fliers misogynistic, disrespectful and divisive and they were immediately removed because all fliers and posters must be approved, sponsored and placed in designated areas.
The American University Police Department is asking anyone who recognizes this person of interest to call them at 202-885-3636.
This is a very horrible thing. Fortunately one of our armtwisters uh er representatives is meeting with school officials who are taking this very seriously:
But seriously this is a man after my own heart. There was a time over 20 years ago I was doing the same thing. Posting where they would get maximum exposure and posting them when my getting caught was at a minimum. I hope this guy is never caught and if he is I hope he skates. We need more courageous souls like him.

Angry men take stand on International Women’s Day

ANGRY blokes have hit the roads for a traffic-stopping rally in support of men’s rights — on International Women’s Day.
Protesters in cars and trucks displayed signs calling for the recognition of men let down by family courts, child support or domestic violence laws.
A sign on the back of a truck in a Brisbane read, “Stop the war on dads”, while a convoy on the M1 northbound on the Gold Coast stopped traffic for about 10 minutes this morning.
The convoy blocked three lanes at Pimpama, forcing motorists to use just one lane and slowing traffic to a 5km/h crawl.
Campaign group Australian Brotherhood of Fathers has been planning the nationwide protest for weeks, calling on its 40,000 Facebook followers across the country to get in a car, motorbike or truck and spend up to an hour on the road.
Organiser Leith Erikson told news.com.au it wasn’t a deliberate decision to have the protest on International Women’s Day, but he thought it was “a good thing”.
The Brisbane-based activist said protesters had also been out on the roads in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne after the ABF came up with the idea for “rolling protests” on the nation’s motorways.
“We’ve been lobbying the government and media for four years,” he said. “We needed to take our message to the community in a different way.
“We’re raising awareness about the terrible issues of men’s suicide, broken relationships and mental health issues. Forty-two men take their lives each week in this country.
“If women believe we are stealing their thunder, let them believe that. It’s the last thing I’m worried about.”
He said he believes the “gender pay gap is a lie” and that “if women are not in top positions in business or government, it’s based on their ability to be there.”
Mr Erikson questioned why more attention was not paid to International Men’s Day on November 19.
He said he is “not anti-female” and has concerns for the rights of women too, but that men are facing a “national emergency”.
Signs at today’s protest also displayed the words “21 fathers”, referring to an ABF awareness campaign about the number of Australian dads it claims take their own lives each week because of separation or family access issues.
Its website says this figure “came about initially as anecdotal evidence” from men’s rights organisations and support groups for men dealing with self-harm and family access issues.
The organisation is focused on “improving the rights of fathers and families” and ensuring children have equal access to both parents.
Mr Erikson posted photos of vehicles stopping traffic today on Facebook and said there would be more protests across every major city to “acknowledge the on going ignorance and failures to protect our children by our state and federal families and health ministers along with the state, territory and federal Attorney-Generals (sic).”
While others are spending the day celebrating women, was the protesters’ timing inappropriate? Or were they right to speak up for men? Tell us what you think in the comments.
This is fantastic. I love activism and these guys know how to do it. It's about time shit like this was flinged back at the feminasties. You motherfuckers are awesome. 5km/h=3.11 mph so we'll round it off to 3 mph if anyone wants to know.
A joint resolution in the Tennessee General Assembly condemning pornography as a "public health crisis" that is making men less interested in marrying passed unanimously in the Senate on Monday.
The nonbinding resolution was sponsored by Sen. Mae Beavers, R-Mt. Juliet, and was passed without any discussion on the Senate floor. It calls for education, policy change, prevention and research on the negative effects of pornography.
Specifically, the resolution says that more millennials are exposed to porn at a younger age, causing eating disorders, and that "children and youth are exposed to pornography that often times serves as their sex education and shapes their sexual templates."
The resolution now needs to pass the House before it's sent to Gov. Bill Haslam's desk.
Why do the men of Tennessee allow this? Unanimously? You've got to be shitting me. Not one person stood up to argue this. That is fucking pathetic. It doesn't say much about the "men?" in Tennessee. It looks like the Southern gentleman has been replaced by the Southern gelded man. If you are like me and have a problem with this then contact the Govenor of Tennessee,Bill Haslam,and tell him that this makes his state look like a joke. The more of us he hears from the better.
