Male feminist meltdown: ‘I used sex and charm and whiteness’ to scam you all

For many years, feminist blogger and Pasadena City College professor Hugo Schwyzer was welcomed by the lefty feminist community. His writing was published by The Atlantic, the Good Men Project, Jezebel, HuffPo, Alternet, The Frisky and the Guardian.

Sure, he alienated some femme-a-gogues over the years, inspiring the Fuck No, Hugo Schwyzer Tumblr. Here’s part of the most recent post:

But Schwyzer promoted SlutWalks and ran around with his speculum-handled abortion pom-poms reciting “pro-choice” cheers, so he continued his cushy gig teaching courses on porn and gender studies while receiving a platform in the feminist media.

Last month he kinda, sorta quit the Internet. The next day, screen caps of a sexting affair between the married “male feminist” and a porn star surfaced. He told New York magazine he was done with the Internet because of his “fragile” mental health and also that feminists are meanies.

This week, the Pasadena Star-News reported that following the sexting scandal and extramarital affairs, Schwyzer would be taking some sick time. At least one trustee doesn’t want him to return to teaching “Navigating Pornography.”

Schwyzer returned to Twitter yesterday, admitting in dozens of tweets to years of deception as he weaseled his way into feminist academia. He also said he was in the middle of a manic episode. Here’s a selection of those tweets from the self-described “notorious bad boy male feminist”:

Some Twitter users suspected Schwyzer had been hacked.

Schwyzer appeared to confirm the tweets were not the work of a hacker.

Mentally ill or not, Schwyzer isn’t finding much sympathy among the people he duped.
