Russian feminist activist, 20 year old Anna Dovgalyuk published a video of herself pouring what she claimed was bleach on men sitting on public transit.
Dovgalyuk says she is attacking the men with corrosive chemicals because of “manspreading” - the act of not keeping their legs close enough together to please feminists in search misogynistic microaggressions.
People have questioned the legitimacy of the video — the Russian outlet Rosbalt dismissed it as fake — but Dovgalyuk insists it is "absolutely real," according to reports published in the UK Sun.
Whether the video is a hoax or legitimate, the response from the feminist community and the mainstream media is very real, and it’s concerning.
Dovgalyuk’s alleged acid attacks on men are getting a very warm reception.
The mainstream media describes her as a feminist and an activist, while her targeted acid attacks are simply “a campaign.” Meanwhile, the victims - the men being attacked - are described as offenders.
