Natalie Reed, Larkin Forestheart, Daryl Banks & Other MRAs (Canada)

mraMen’s Rights Activists plan to undermine a memorial event sponsored by Vancouver Rape Relief to commemorate the murder of 14 Women by Marc Lépine in Montreal, Canada. Those actively working to undermine the event, which features Dr. Janice Raymond, include Natalie Reed, who later claimed to back away from the protest, and Larkin Forestheart, a woman who “identifies” as a man who planned a flashmob event. Further efforts to undermine the event came from El Feministo, a sock puppet account of well-known MRA Daryl Banks, a man who suffers from autogynephilia and calls himself Sophia. Banks apparently thinks “feminist activism” means working to undermine an organisation that provides support services to Women traumatized by male violence.

In other news, hundreds of feminists and pro-feminist men have publicly support VRR and Dr. Raymond, including this statement from the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF).

Dr. Janice Raymond Harassed By @Elfeministo (Canada)

Dr. Janice RaymondDr. Janice Raymond is an internationally regarded philosopher and feminist who has done ground breaking work around trafficking and male violence. She is scheduled to speak at a memorial event commemorating the Montreal Massacre in 1989, in which an anti-feminist, female-hating man murdered 14 women at the École Polytechnique for daring to study engineering.  A men’s rights activist named El Feministo is currently harassing the organisers of the event, Vancouver Rape Relief & Women’s Shelter, for asking Dr. Raymond to speak. MRAs are upset that Dr. Raymond is speaking because of her feminist critique of transgenderism as put forth in her groundbreaking book, The Transsexual Empire. Vancouver Rape Relief also supports women-only space. It is likely that El Feministo is the fringe Men’s Right’s Activist Daryl Banks, a transgender woman well-known for harassing Women.
