As many of you may have just read, Andy Bob has contributed a feature article on the most recent “threat” to Anita Sarkeesian, a “pop culture critic” for whom threats have been quite rewarding, financially.
The latest of these threats is related to Sarkeesian’s scheduled presentation at Utah State University. The university allegedly received an email warning them that allowing Anita Sarkeesian to speak there would result in “the deadliest school shooting in American history.”
Of course, and completely predictably, feminist hacks like David Futrelle are pointing to the MHRM as the culprits.
Full disclosure here. We don’t know anyone who really thinks that the current “threat” came from anyone associated with the men’s movement. And there are plenty here looking at the content of the alleged email and being overwhelmed by the scent of feminist rats.
After all, it would not be the first rats we have encountered. The Danielle D’Entremont story is fresh in the minds of a lot of people. Her MHRA “attacker” was never found, and everyone in the case went silent after men’s groups pledged several thousand dollars in reward money for the arrest and conviction of her alleged assailant. No feminist group stepped up to match our pledges.
Anita Sarkeesian has a similar and much more expansive record of intractable and illusive boogeymen threatening her at every turn. No one is ever identified or arrested, and no real crime is ever proven, but the money has kept finding its way into her Paypal account.
Still, on the outside chance that there is any truth to the feminist spin, AVFM is going on record with a very sincere offer. We want the person or persons who sent this threatening email, should they actually exist, to be arrested and punished accordingly. One of our affiliates has already written us pledging $250.00 to a reward fund for this purpose. We are pledging an additional $1,000.00 for a start-up pot of $1,250.00.
