Rupert Myers: The face of a “feminist”

Have fun in the unemployment line, idiot.

From Fox News: A male feminist writer has been fired by the prestigious GQ Magazine after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her outside a bar. The writer, Rubert Myers, apologized to his accuser after she outed him on Twitter.

“Having been made aware of some allegations against Rupert Myers, British GQ can confirm that it has terminated its freelance agreement with him, with immediate effect. He is no longer British GQ’s Political Correspondent,” a spokesperson told Fox News.

Journalist Kate Leaver took to Twitter on Thursday to open up about her alleged experience with Myers.

“Ok, here goes. I haven’t told this story because I listened to the voice that told me it ‘wasn’t that bad’ or ‘worth talking about,’” Leaver wrote. “When I moved to London, I wanted to make friends. I met @RupertMyers on Twitter and agreed to go for what I thought was a friendly drink.”

She continued: I was very clear about not being romantically or sexually interested in him, once the subject was raised. I suggested we be mates … He said ‘I’ve got enough mates, I’d rather f–k you’ and forced himself on me outside a pub in Fitzrovia.

Leaver said that Myers eventually apologized, but it was “not enough,” and she has heard he harasses women on a regular basis.

“The apology is weak, and only inspired by public humiliation and fear of consequence. This is a Weinstein microcosm,” Leaver wrote. “Anyone else who has been harassed by this man, or any other, I stand by you. Over and out.”

Myers, who deactivated his Twitter account after Leaver started tweeting her story, is a known feminist who has written stories such as, “Men’s rights activist are cave dwelling idiots.” In the 2015 story, Myers wrote, “There is a new, global group dedicated to undermining significant social change. They wear the mask of an online avatar and use technology to harass, threaten and silence their targets. Their cause? To prevent steps towards the equality of men and women. They are the ‘Men’s rights activists.’

Daily Caller reporter Ian Miles Cheong had harsh words for Myers, tweeting, “Male feminists who claim the moral high ground, who turn their noses up at the ‘misogynists’ below, are the very demons they claim to fight.”

Myers also has written stories mocking President Trump, declaring that there is “no such thing” as an illegal immigrant and bragged about being photographed with the alleged writer of the infamous Russian dossier of Trump information. 

Myers could not immediately be reached for comment.

  1. Rupert Myers’ problem is that the landscape shifted under him. Men, e.g., Ted Kennedy & Bill Clinton, used to get a pass on their predatory behavior by calling themselves “feminists” — which, in practice, means being pro-abortion. It’ll be interesting to see if things have really changed once the MSM lose interest in the Harvey Weinstein scandal du jour.

  3. Why don’t we just cut to the chase,and assume EVERY woman has been raped,and EVERY man is a rapist. No more discussion is required.
    What’s the NEXT subject EVERYONE (it seems) wants to jump on the bandwagon for? Maybe Congress needs to make a time limit for all this kinda stuff,where if you don’t complain within a year of the offense it’s legally considered forgiven.
    There’s been half a dozen times in my life where I could have sued or brought charges against someone for accidents or injuries and settled out of court and become wealthy,but that’s not how I’m made. (I never even THOUGHT of that until later in life.)
    Do you wonder how many of these women were REALLY harmed for life by what happened to them,and how many only jump into the fray for the fame and the money? How many were never even TOUCHED,but-hey-could this be their chance to make a few bucks…?
    I guess if a guy does this once,it opens the door for many other women to accuse him of it,right or wrong. I dunno-it sure is getting old though,this feeding frenzy….

    • In the old days when we had intact families, brothers would go on dates as chaperones. To protect their sisters honor. And young men used to come and meet the family and spend time with them. There was protection in that social structure. But as Alan Watt and several others point out, there has been a deliberate breakdown if the family structure by closet communists etc, because they needed to destroy the last bastion of individual thinking and innovation to continue their goals. Which is to present a world leader, the Antichrist. Sick as the elite are, have been very calculating and patient in this. But they said they would destroy us from the inside 100 years ago. And here we are.

  4. This will not be the very last time that a woman/women will go after some guy for sexual harassment. Most of us women have one time or another had this happen to them . . . pull up your big girl panties and trudge onward. When it gets to be that these kinds of accusations are commonplace, people will begin to not put much credence in the claims. I can only speak for myself, in general I love men, I don’t care to see a boogey man behind every bush, nor do I wish to become adversarial with men. In many of these cases if women (and men who knew about the problem) spoke up at the inception of the problem, it may not have blossomed into the colossal problem it is today.

  5. sounds like he was just writing what his bosses wanted to hear so he could get paid (or is it ‘laid’?).
    he’s filth for calling himself a “feminist” and filth for assaulting women.
    I still find it interesting that females who call themselves “feminists” are always berating men and talking about ’empowerment’, and how females are better than males; but, when a male does something to them, they run and hide, and later come forward as a group with #MeToo.
    feminism is one big lie and these useful idiots, um…I mean “feminists”, know it, yet they hide behind it because it has supplanted the man’s role in their lives as “protector”, they are now “protected” by the false ideology of feminism.
    any male who calls himself a “feminist” is only doing so to get paid, laid, or because his girlfriend’s testosterone level is higher than his own.

  6. At the risk of over-sharing, I was raped when I was 19, by a man I knew was unbalanced. However, even with that knowledge, I allowed myself to be alone with him…tantamount to dangling a fresh piece of meat in front of a hungry tiger.

    Where is the victim’s responsibility? Stranger rape is one thing: in that case, the victim is often blameless. But in the majority of sexual assaults (including mine), the victims bear at least SOME responsibility. Yet I’ve yet to hear much in the way of acceptance of any responsibility, and to point that out invites vitriol and accusations of “blaming the victim”. Well, I reject that.

    For a variety of reasons, I did not report my assault to the police. For that, I gave up any future sniveling rights. It was a ghastly experience, but a single experience does not define me. #METOO is a cop-out; I’d like to see #POORJUDGMENT instead. At least that’d be honest.

  7. He’s not sorry he did it. He’s sorry he got caught.
