Feminist restaurant that imposes 18% ‘gender surcharge’ on men will close for good

Handsome Her is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Brunswick, an inner-city suburb of Melbourne, Australia, which describes itself as “Community based cafe focussing on female empowerment, social responsibility and environmental justice. All vegan all day.”

Handsome Her is also a feminist restaurant that gives priority seating to female customers. In 2017, the restaurant attracted headlines for righting the alleged “gender pay gap” by charging men extra with an 18% “gender surcharge”. At the time, the cafe’s management claimed the attention left them “jam-packed with customers showing their support”.

Calling the restaurant “feminist” is actually a misnomer. Handsome Her more properly should be identified as a lesbian restaurant, as shown by a recent post on the restaurant’s Facebook page promoting a lesbian speed-dating event.

Alas, all good things must come to an end.

Paul Joseph Watson reports for Summit News, April 23, 2019, that Handsome Her, which only opened a few years ago, is closing for good on April 28.

Out of 52 reviews on Trip Advisor, Handsome Her received only 18 “excellent”, one “average”, 3 “poor”, and 30 “terrible” ratings. John P. from Sydney, Australia, who visited the restaurant in August 2017, gave it a one-star “terrible” rating. He wrote:

I was in Melbourne on business recently and a friend of mine recommended this cafe. What a shame I listened to her. It took 5 minutes to get the attention of a waitress who seemed to be more interested in chatting to her friends, rather than serving a customer who’d just walked through the door. I was eventually seated and chose the gnocchi paired with the suggested pinot noir. The gnocchi arrived and I was bitterly disappointed. The gnocchi was very undercooked and had a floury texture, the mushrooms were burnt and the dish lacked any real flavour. The only enjoyable part of the meal was the wine. I left most of my meal on the plate and finished my wine.

When I asked for the bill, the waitress asked if there was a problem with my meal, since I’d left most of it on my plate. When I told her of my dissatisfaction with the meal, she morphed into an aggressive and irate woman who then started dispatching some rather vile language. Not wanting to cause a scene, I subsequently left the requisite cash on the table, which included a 15% tip, and promptly walked out. As I was walking past the register on the way out, I could hear the same woman telling the other waitress working with her that I was a “vile beast” and that I “wasn’t welcome here again”.

I certainly won’t be coming back. One of the worst experiences I’ve had in quite some time.

If I happen to be in Melbourne in the next couple of days I’ll make it a point not to order their gnocchi. I don’t even know what that is, don’t think I want to. And they are probably wondering why they are going out of business. They’ll blame The Patriarchy

It’s probably Italian peasant food that they’ve declared to be “chic”. The smaller the portion the greater the price.

I’m not sure they were ever in business. Sounds like radical activism was their goal. Well, they successfully acted in what sounds like extreme and hostile gender discrimination. That they stopped having a soapbox makes me think the world took a baby step in a positive direction.

I kinda hope they try it again….the money they lose will mean less money for donations to radical leftism.

Can we just call feminists lesbians from now on? I can’t see that there is any difference. Their only sexual attraction is to themselves

I think that’s all they ever really were anyway. Think back to those NOW conventions and all the lesbiatic characters like Andrea Dworkin. A few like Steinem may have been straight, but one thing is certain- all the founders of this garbage are all of a certain tribe. Unfortunately they have spread their disease to the larger gentile population of women, and now if young women are not downright lesbiatics, they are emasculating, competitive , know it alls who leave no room for a man to be a man.

Dworkin – didn’t she once say all sex is rape? Although looking at her I can’t imagine how she could possibly know that. My ex was an artist/musician who did some kind of “internship” at Kate Millet’s (remember her?) commune, a Christmas tree farm in NY state. I went over to pick her up and met Millet, grotesquely overweight from decades of taking lithium and extremely mentally fragile. Everyone there was a bitchy, game-playing lesbian. A depressing lesbian drama fest. I thought to myself, I took a wrong turn and ended up in hell. Millet along with Steinem was a… Read more »

I had forgotten about Dworken (until now!). She was a fat pig. We all know this is about controlling reproduction and society. Think of them as our “breeders”. A breeder doesn’t care how many of the cows hump each other.

YES: Feminism teaches women to practice witchcraft, hate men and kill their children. Feminism really is witchcraft, and it was foisted and imposed upon the world by the CIA and the Rockefeller Cabal. (True—listen to Alex Jones and David Icke).

Feminism really is a militant form of narcissism. (Or solipsism).

I saw the link at the bottom of the page, about Whatfinger, and I agree, it is better than Drudgereport. Drudge used to be my number one go to page, then they slowly ruined their website by posting mostly click bait, spam and pay links, and a confusing, faux Conservative agenda. Those who think that they’re going to charge me for telling me what they want me to know, is out of their mind.

It is good. Just as a note, it is very pro-Jewish. That isn’t all bad, but I’m cautious. There is definitely a bias.

But what if someone is feeling female? Do they get a discount? I suppose we’re supposed to add up the “intersections”. Colored? Check! Gay? Check! Insane? Double Points!

If you were crazy enough to eat there you would start with double points. Insane would be checked by default. I mean, undercooked gnocchi? Yum. With the added benefit of being served by an abusive lesbian

Good! So glad that they are shutting their doors. For the life of me, I just do not understand why individuals think that the rest of us want any retailer, or service provider to beat us over the head with their personal sexual desires, their political leanings, etc. As far as a restaurant goes–for cryin’ out loud . . . just serve good food already!!!

Auntie Lulu, gender is determined by how it feels. And we are supposed to know that, otherwise we get arrested or sued for “misgendering”

They would have been just as well to name their cafe ‘ The Man Haters Restaurant” no penises allowed. Instead they obviously didn’t advertise their prejudice until they had a seated customer which was quite cowardly. No doubt they wanted to have men to bludgeon. So wrapped up in their own narcissistic little world, they would never once imagine there are plenty of men making less money than women these days. But nope it’s all about identity. What craven morons. Glad they went belly up.

I hope I’m not the only one who constantly notices all their talking about “inclusion” and “acceptance” hypocritical. This is pure Frankfurt School, Fabian nonsense.

Just like the cafe philosopher, Marx, these little morons are trying to create a world for themselves in which you can be lazy and ineffective, perverse and disgusting and still have entertainment money.

They call everyone else “haters”. Where is the “hatred” coming from? Projecting every fault onto someone else and then claiming victimhood for the response is insane.

The sh!t hole restaurant in Charlottesville that threw Sarah Sanders out had to go to a reservations only policy due to the blowback from their action. BTW, homos tried to force a baker to make a disgusting cake. I believe the courts finally sided with the baker. As far as I know, at least in the US, charging people more or less based on demographics won’t fly for long if litigated. Is there somewhere we can exile these idiots to where we won’t have to put up with them?

Well, yeah. Think about it. What if I ran a restaurant and said “well, normally that would be $20.00 but, you’re black. For you it’s $25.00. How long would I stay open?

Actually, I don’t think any of this stuff should be against the law. Live by the sword – die by the sword. Let public opinion decide whether you stay in business or not. Don’t get me wrong . I don’t advocate this behavior one way or another. But to litigate it is to litigate thought crime. Slippery Slope.

For all the “hate” that the left claim CFA promotes, you’ll always receive excellent customer service at their restaurants. And they don’t favor one guest over another.

These womyn coulda learned a thing or two from CFA.
