VIDEO: Misogyny Theater Presents: John Hembling in "I Don't Give a @$%# About Rape!"

Welcome to the first episode of Misogyny Theater, our new animated series, bringing you the best of the worst of YouTube misogyny.

In today’s episode, we revisit an old video from John The Other, also known as John Hembling, a fellow most of you already know pretty well. The monologue in this video is an unedited excerpt from a YouTube rant of his, minus some of the distracting background music that was included in the original.

Content Note: The misogyny in this one is pretty bad, even by John the Other standards.

I will try to produce at least one of these a week. There’s plenty of misogyny on YouTube, so it’s doubtful I’ll run out of material any time soon. I will also be doing a series based on Creepy PMs. Big thanks to everyone who’s pointed me to interesting candidates for future videos, as well as to those who’ve volunteered to do voice work or who’ve sent in pictures of their pets. Thanks as well to the anonymous Friend of the Mammoths who put together the snazzy title sequences here.

In my post announcing my video plans last week, I offered some suggestions on how to help; I’m going to write up a most detailed FAQ on this shortly.

John’s original video is no longer up on YouTube, but you can see clips from it — including the portion I used in the video above — in this more recent video from him in which he tries to explain away the horrible things he said. Apparently it was just a big joke! All in good fun!

EDIT: Removed an embedded video that was no longer functioning because it’s been removed from YouTube.

EDIT 2: For a mashup of Hembling’s original video, along with another video of his in which he pointedly refuses to apologize for the original video, see here, courtesy of Mancheeze.

I don’t generally care for banana bread, but my partner made it with cranberries once and that really helped offset the cloying banana sweetness.

Oooh, my very own welcome package! I’ll make sure to tuck it safely away with my scented candles and instructional texts on cuntish wiles. Again, thanks, pals. Your warm welcome is much appreciated.

Whee, another Southerner! It’s nice to know that there’s another one of us here. Warms my soul.

emilygoddess: Have you ever had zucchini bread?

I like zucchini bread as much as I like banana bread, and it doesn’t have that sweet banana taste.

the other issue is, even if JtO did genuinely intervene and prevent a woman from being raped, that doesn’t negate the fact that he has repeatedly said awful things about women and sexual assault.

people can be terrible and wrong and still do a good thing, woody dear

I was scanning the CBC site and found that the last of the monsters from the chained teen case has been sentenced to two years. I wonder if JtO can feel bad for the victim and outraged over the short sentence? Or if he reserves his disdain for female victims, but supports male victims? Then there’s another, older Canadian story about a gang rape that was videod and posted on line. But, even though the victims were the same age (both 16), would JtO deride the young woman but support the young man?
