A viral anti-feminist video which showed men defending themselves against violent assaults by women was controversially deleted after YouTube deemed the video to be a form of “hate speech”.
Uploaded by a YouTube user called RedPillPhilosophy, the video received over 1.1 million views and over 9,000 likes on YouTube alone before it was taken down.
The clip showed numerous instances of women attacking men and men defending themselves in an effort to make the point that feminists don’t truly believe in “gender equality”.
“All the video ever did was document people defending themselves against bullies, aggressors (and) violent people,” commented the uploader, noting that the idea we live in a “patriarchy” is discredited if men defending themselves against violence was considered to be “hate speech”.
“Apparently we live in a society where a woman who is bullying somebody should get a free pass,” he added, noting that a video showing women defending themselves against men would have been celebrated.
The incident also illustrates how YouTube’s policy on deleting videos is driven by mob rule. So long as enough individuals can be encouraged to flag a video, it is automatically censored no matter the nature of its content.
While the original video was undoubtedly controversial and offensive to many, the fact that it was completely removed once again highlights how censorious feminists hold sway over the policing of thought and content on the Internet. Videos of women attacking men remain on YouTube and are not considered to be “hate speech.”
This is by no means the first time that radical feminists have organized to have content which challenges their views censored. Janet Bloomfield, the founder of the #WomenAgainstFeminism hashtag, had her Twitter account erased after she disagreed with feminist Jessica Valenti. The Guardian writer claimed that Christmas was oppressive to women because of the chores they were expected to do during the holiday season.
