On feminist abuse culture and enabling

Jezebel ran a piece by Hugo Schwyzer on why it should be OK to publicly shame creeps who present themselves as "Nice Guys" (e.g., the tumblr "Nice Guys of OK Cupid"). Problem: Hugo himself has a bad case of Nice Guy syndrome, and support from feminist/women's spaces is letting him get away with it.


  1. Short version of the story on Hugo: he has a history of ongoing predatory and manipulative behavior (and lying about that behavior), and bills himself as a male feminist and ally to women in large part on the strength of a narrative that he's found "redemption" from his former ways. There's more detailed background in the couple links below.
