John "The Other" Hembling on MRAs spamming Occidental College with false rape reports: "Go forward, brothers, and f*ck their sh*t up!"

This has to be my favorite quote to come out of the whole Occidental College fiasco; it’s staggering in its moral blindness and fanaticism and its complete lack of self-awareness. It also captures well the peculiarly self-defeating quality of so much Men’s Rights rhetoric and, er, “activism.”

johntheother [-37] -8 points 3 hours ago (11|19)  "‘Men’s rights activists’ conspire to cripple college rape reporting system with false reports"  GOOD! Go forward, brothers, and fuck their shit up.  rape is a crime. If somebody has a report to file of being the victim of this crime - file that report with a POLICE ORGANIZATION, not with some jumped up kangaroo court or administrative star chamber. And when operating in an environment where the star-chamber rules - FTSU with the same fraudulent reports they've tuned their system to process against you.      permalink     source     save     give gold     hide child comments  [–]O-Fortuna 3 points 35 minutes ago (4|0)  This came off so silly and juvenile I thought it was one of the troll comments the mods talked about, but you seem to be some kind of widely known mra. In favor of making false reports. Appalling.

The backstory here: the commenter in question is none other than John “The Other” Hembling, the Number Two (or Three? I can’t tell) boy at A Voice for Men. He’s responding to an article on Raw Story that’s indicative of the incredibly (and justifiably) bad press Reddit MRAs have gotten for spamming Occiental College’s anonymous rape reporting website with false reports of rape, some of which may have named real people at the school as the “perps.”

At this point in the story, even the normally obtuse Men’s Rights Redditors realize they have a disaster on their hands, and are trying to blame anyone else they can.

But Hembling thinks it’s the perfect time to cheer on the false accusers amongst the MRAs.

That’s right: apparently jealous of all the attention Reddit MRAs have gotten for their cloddish “activism,” he’s decided to jump aboard this train — after it’s left the station, derailed, and fallen into a ravine.

That response is classic, too

JtO is a clown. If I hadn’t read AVfM and someone told me about them, I’d thinking they were making it up.

The greatest human rights movement (bowel edition) of our time, folks!

Hembling’s decided rape really is a crime, now? This is the same fecal specimen who said he’d walk past a woman being raped.

Pretty true to form for JtO.

I love it! Mainly because whenever MRAs do repellent shit in the name of men’s rights, apologists fall all over themselves ‘splaining that “it was trolls” or “it was a small group and not representative.” Well, isn’t JtO considered a major figure in the MRM? He at least seems to heartily approve of the action. And we all know how Elam feels about rape victims.

So, to borrow a phrase from GirlWritesWhat, “MRAs, own your shit.

Do they ever actually talk to eachother? I mean in the sense of planning their responses to things? Right now it looks to me like they just shoot off their mouths at whim. sigh. I think that these guys have gone way past misogyny right into gynophobia…

There’s something really quite majestic about how the MRM can hit the self-destruct button so consummately and descend into utter pandemonium, all without the slightest outside interference. Most houses of cards at least need to be gently blown upon.

Made me think of this.

They actually think that making the general public disgusted and appalled is good PR. Wow.

Dunno, I never go to their sites.

It’s like setting up a lemonade stand business and putting up a sign that says “Our lemonade tastes like piss and will make you want to never drink again.”

Cassandra: if they had a real PR person, that unfortunate soul would be drinking full-time to deal with them. Then again, I can’t imagine a legit PR person working with these assholes.

I like how they are not trying to use the old “4chan made us do it” defense.

Also, look at a shining star of the MRM ignoring the reality of victims (including male victims) who are either unable to report to a police organization or choose not to because they want to avoid being involved in our shitty justice system. Such compassion.

Truly a thing of beauty. It’s like the twenty-car pileup of internet activism.

“But Timmy did it first!” is not an acceptable excuse when it comes from 5 year olds, but I am strangely unsurprised to see MRAs trying it out.

Onward, rapist soldiers, marching as to Gor,
With the book of Farrell going on before,
John, that stupid asshole, leads against the foe,
Forward, into college, see his spammers go!

I’m not sure they have enough self-awareness not to adopt that as an awesome new campaign song for those for whom Fuck Their Shit Up was too rawk.
