An Inconceivable Project

Today I have decided to do a very serious post, something I haven't done before. I think that this issue is very serious and affects all of us, not just the women of the world. Ken Hoinsky has set up a project on Kickstarter in order to fund a book that is essentially a how-to guide for sexual assault of women. This is positively disgusting and horrible. I cannot understand how someone would want to publish that, let alone why the people at Kickstarter would allow this project to get started. And the cherry on top? People are actually funding this. That's right. There are people out in the world who are actually helping to fund the publication of this guide. Unfortunately, the end date for financing the project was yesterday, but there is still hope! Hopefully if enough people make others aware of this project and its content, then it will be shut down and Hoinsky will be unable to publish. There were 732 backers and despite there being only a goal of raising $2000, an astonishing $16369 was raised. Not only am I absolutely shocked and appalled that someone would want to publish this, but I am flabbergasted that 732 people were willing to provide this man with $16369 dollars in order to do so!

Hoinsky has been publishing posts on Reddit and this guide (I will never refer to it as a book again, it is not worthy of being called thus) will be a compilation of those posts, as well as other content that has yet to be published. He plans on having this published and out by July. Hopefully this will never, ever happen. I am sincerely hoping that there is no publishing house on this planet that would be willing to publish this guide.

The content that he is including is absolutely disgusting.

"5) Get CLOSE to her, damn it!
To quote Rob Judge, "Personal space is for pussies." I already told you that the most successful seducers are those who can't keep their hands off of women. Well you're not gonna be able to do that if you aren't in close!
“All the greatest seducers in history could not keep their hands off of women. They aggressively escalated physically with every woman they were flirting with. They began touching them immediately, kept great body language and eye contact, and were shameless in their physicality. Even when a girl rejects your advances, she KNOWS that you desire her. That’s hot. It arouses her physically and psychologically.”

“Decide that you’re going to sit in a position where you can rub her leg and back. Physically pick her up and sit her on your lap. Don’t ask for permission. Be dominant. Force her to rebuff your advances.”
Sex
Pull out your cock and put her hand on it. Remember, she is letting you do this because you have established yourself as a LEADER. Don’t ask for permission, GRAB HER HAND, and put it right on your dick.”


This guy seems to be a typical nerd who had troubles getting the attention of girls, which everyone struggles with. But the difference is that he seems to be using the fact that his first three girlfriends cheated and dumped him for someone else as an excuse to create a guide on sexual assault. Let me say this right now to any guy reading this: no girl wants someone to assault them. No guy would ever want someone to assault them. Believe it or not, girls like a nice guy, not someone who attempts to dominate them and end up getting raped. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or there is something wrong there.

There is something seriously wrong with the fact that this man wants to publish something like this, that he is obtaining quite a large sum from people to publish this, and that the people at Kickstarter have allowed this to become a project on their website.

Please help this not become a reality. This project needs to be stopped as soon as possible. You can report the project at the bottom of this page. Alas, there was a petition on DoSomething.org but it has been closed so that they can take it down to Kickstarter to show them. On Kickstarter's Terms of Use page it specifically says that no project will be "abusive", "threatening" or "offensive" and this project clearly violates these Terms of Use. Please, when you report the project type this in.

Apparently, Kickstarter also told a news source that this petition won't be enough to halt the project and take it down. If all of you readers could be so kind as to go to Kickstarter and report the project (the link is above) it will be an immense help.
