Reddit and 4-chan are hubs for the “Beta Rebellion,” with many male commenters encouraging or glorifying recent mass shootings. Calls for young men to “rise up and stop the feminist insanity that has left them without pussy” exemplify these men’s attitudes.


Kat Banyard asks why Amnesty International employed a pimp to help shape their sex trade policy:

“Known as the ‘Madam of Sullivan,’ [Alejandra] Gil is reported to have been at the centre of a pimping operation in Mexico City, sexually exploiting around 200 women. What is crucial to recognize, however, is that Gil didn’t have to hide her vested interests as a pimp in her [Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP)] role. The group campaigns for pimping and brothel-keeping to be recognized as ordinary work. According to NSWP policy, as a pimp Gil was a ‘sex worker’ whose precise role was a ‘manager.’”
