Men’s rights ‘activists’ from AVFM decided to start a booth under false pretenses at the Calgary Expo. The Honey Badgers, including the dimwits Karen Straugn, Allison Tieman, and Hannah Wallen, lied to the Expo and got themselves a booth.
MRA’s are responsible for Gamergate which began on Youtube by sending rape and death threats to Anita Sarkeesian for her video series ‘Tropes Versus Women In Video Games.’
It doesn’t take long to type in her name into Youtube’s search engine and find thousands upon thousands of videos by men who think Anita is taking their precious vidya games away. The videos are endless barrages of ‘cunt, whore, slut and nazi.’ Sound familiar?
The next round of misogyny arrived when Zoe Quinn’s ex-boyfriend and MRA in training Eron Gjoni posted a whiny, angry exposition about their breakup, insinuating Zoe was a whore who slept with other men. I did a couple posts on this in the Autumn of 2014 when it began.

Gamergate really just is a bunch of MRA’s who don’t have anything better to do than to take their anger out on women. Anita Sarkeesian has to have personal bodyguards travel with her because these guys have sent threats of another Montreal-type massacre to her public speaking engagements.
I’m not going to relay each and every incident but this latest one is truly hilarious.
The Honey Badgers, a few women from A Voice for Men, decided to ‘infiltrate’ the Expo and proudly stated as such. These idiots raised nine thousand dollars to do it. Imagine that 9 grand going to a men’s shelter? Naww!
The Honey Badgers lied to the Expo, I’m sure with some silly story about ‘equality’ or ‘ethics’ and set up their booth. What they were actually gonna do is harass women and feminists. They were shouting at people and causing problems. In short, they were asked to leave and their booth torn down before the public arrived.
In the coming days I’m sure AVFM will publish a mantrum about how these women were censored and bullied and it’s all feminists fault. It’s already starting on Twitter with massive amounts of male whining. There’s already a petition asking ‘why oh why did those poor women get booted from the Expo?’ These idiots think booting this group is misogyny because the group was mostly women. I guess they didn’t get the memo that women can be asshole misogynists too?

Finally, here’s a tweet with a live stream video attached of the men’s rights group talking about harassing panels and other participants of the Expo. It starts at about 45 minutes in. Allison Tieman talks about women wearing ‘victimhood’ clothing or some shit and Sage Gerard psychotically yells at the camera something about MRA’s taking over the world.
NOTE: The video was set to private on and off today. It was making the rounds on Twitter as evidence that these morons were indeed there to harass feminists. I think the Badgers realized this and set it to private. It appears to work at intermittent times.
The Honey Badgers uploaded a 45 second clip where they claim in the description they can’t understand why they were kicked out. In it you’ll hear Allison Tieman blurt some silly straw man interrupting a panel talk and taking up all the air in the room like an idiot. As time goes on I’m sure we’ll know more about their bad behaviour.
