Comic Con: How feminism was used as a “blunt force tool” to silence opposition

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator Holly Nicholas
 

Alison Tieman is a men’s rights activist with the Honey Badgers – a group with a large following that addresses men’s issues. She’s also an artist and creator of the popular Xenospora web comic.

In April of 2015, Alison and her Badger friends raised $9,900 to set up a joint booth at Calgary Comic Con.

They placed a Gamer Gate logo on their banner to support freedom of expression and attended a panel for women in the comic book industry. Up until that point, there were no issues, but relations soured after Alison spoke up against feminism.

Watch my video as I interview Alison and she explains how a polite disagreement sparked controversy and ended in complaints of harassment at the panel event.

The entire exchange (which can be heard HERE beginning at around the 18 minute mark) also ended in the Honey Badgers being kicked out of Comic Con, apparently for not following the rules, and as a result of Alison explaining why she doesn’t agree with feminism.

The Honey Badgers took the issue to court where they hope to have their day to push back against their treatment at the event and to ensure this doesn’t happen to anyone again.

And all of this, just for speaking politely against feminism and having an amicable discussion among a group of people with different ideas.

The Honey Badgers are scheduled to have their case heard in November of this year. I’ll continue to follow the story as it unfolds and update you with new information.

If you’re interested in men’s rights or want to look into some of the topics in the video, you can find more at www.honeybadgerbrigade.com.

Gee, you can’t even go to comic con without getting bombarded by this leftist drivel.

Many years ago I was in the very public rotunda at Ottawa city hall where a meeting was being held by feminists. I stopped to listen to what they had to say and was immediately told to leave the area. I’m quite certain many feminist are quite insane or sociopaths.

Bravo Zulu their silence speaks volumes about what their true motives are. The funniest part of the lefts ignorance is that they think they can use Islam as a tool then put it away like a hammer.

Hmmm…..

Feminists?

Angered feminists?

You mean those people who support islam and do not protest stoning of women, do not protest raping of women, do not protest FGM, do not protest child marriage, do not protest “honour” killings and more?

The people who do not protest those evil cult members kill homosexuals by throwing them off buildings?

They are not feminists.

They are feminazis.

I wish people would start calling them what they are.

Feminazis.

Where are they when this happens?

At home living their self righteous lives in luxury.

And for that matter where is that feminist trudope?

At home telling lies to gullible canuckleheads who actually believe them.

Disgusting.

There is no such thing as a good or honourable feminist.

Until they stand up and fight things they send others to do, they are all dirt to me.

Best to all.

Hey Holly Nicholas, don’t know if you read these comments, but I too was banned from ever having a table again at that Calgary Comic Expo. Mine was because I had religious affiliations.

Good for them for taking this to court. This is yet another example of the ever expanding oppression which we are experiencing at the hands of the left. Snow flake feminazis demanding their ‘right’ to bash men with out any opposition by shutting down any discourse. Controlling art and literature is just another step towards a totalitarian state. You have to push back. Sounds like a worthy crowd fund, if necessary.

‘The unfounded cries of misogyny were used as a blunt force tool to silence opposition’. It is an overused and dishonest tactic nine times out of ten. We have many female politicians using the same tactic in this country and it is always a pathetic and embarrassing thing for any reasonable woman to have to witness. Disingenuous and only helpful to losers, because they don’t know how to win a fair fight. Feminazis are the dirtiest fighters alive.

@bill Elder…have you read Who Stole Feminism by Christina Hoff Sommers?

You’d have to have a psychotic personality disorder to complain and accusation mob someone for having a differing opinion – truly a sign of mental instability. – I’m not sure this is as much about vindictive feminists as it is about personality disorder sheltering under a political cause.

@rob Urban…the problem is Rob that feminism is the womyn’s auxilliary of the Liberal Party. Justin Trudeau thinks that his displays of white knight high horse dressage are the highest of all moral ground and so far nobody has had the courage to say the emporer has no clothes on when he does these little preformances. Status of Women Canada is a “policy advisory” non elected entity. That is like having academic communists as a permanent law and policy commitee representing workers.

What disappointed me most about the Harper regieme is this…Status of Women Canada was created by an “order in council”. The cabinet of any sitting government can rescind previous orders in council without even refering the matter to the House of Commons. Harper could have gotten rid of them with the stroke of a pen. Oh yes the CBC would have had a caniption and the usual fourteen lesbians would have beaten on pots and pans…but they did that when Studio “D” (for dyke I presume) at the National Film Board got defunded.

Good on Tieman and Honey Badgers, also the judge that denied the petition against their suit, which surprises me.

However, I hope they have deep pockets because we know the anti-free speech and anti-art types do…Soros???

Nazism and Marxism (Communism), though thoroughly and disgustingly evil, were and are “pussy-cats” compared to the utterly loathsome evil of feminism.
Anyone who loves and respects women (men and women) will scorn Feminism and fight it and its champions and minions with courage, strength, and forthrightness, showing no mercy whatsoever this utterly evil ideology of mendacity and hate.
commented 2017-02-04 18:06:50 -0500
The most vicious and insidious and mendacious and hate-mongering of these movements has been Feminism……..the greatest evil of our age. Supported by the odious Justin Trudeau here in Canada, who is continuing to do the harm and destruction to our country that was begun by his arrogant and neo-Marxist fascist father.
commented 2017-02-04 18:01:43 -0500
The three greatest evils of the modern and “postmodern” age have been and are Marxism, Nazism and Feminism. (Along with related minion groups such as the so-called LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter, and other such viciously anti-civilization movements). There is also, of course, Islamic Jihad (with which all of the aforementioned are in complete accord.)
All persons with moral and intellectual integrity must fight against these forces of evil.

Feminism is a bunch of revisionist BS. Acknowledging (sort of) all the shitty stuff white men did to the world, it was mostly for the BENEFIT of white women. This trying to “opt out” of (the ridiculous notion to begin with) “white guilt” (why is everybody trying to get into the western world again?) by playing the pussy card is a joke. White women weren’t working in coal mines, plowing fields or shooting at Nazis. Nice try, pretty much every dead bird a white man caught was laid at the doorstep of a white woman. If you want to hate yourself fine, but don’t duck, dip, dodge and dive out of your own culpability.
