Disturbing: Woman burning copies of Dr. Hoff-Sommers’ book The War Against Boys

There’s something symbolic about burning a book that fits perfectly well with the mentality of our opponents. I believe the phrase is “intellectually bankrupt.”

The vast majority of our opponents don’t have arguments. Developing arguments would involve actually considering potential counter-arguments, which would in turn cause a very discomfortable next step of introspection … of questioning their own positions.

Since arguments are out of the question, our opponents instead adopt the methods of name-calling, violent threats, logical fallacies, and censorship. And you can see this played out over and over again in the articles here on free speech.

The woman below is burning an older edition of Dr. Christina Hoff-Sommers’ book The War Against Boys. You can purchase the new revised edition, which was released late last year, at Amazon here.

The woman in these pictures is the author of a Tumblr blog. Here is a screenshot of her original post. I will be adding one of these pictures to the key AVFMS page “The Face of Misandry in Academia.” Check it out if you haven’t already.

  • Do you want to publish a book?


    This is an early call for manuscripts. AVFM Education, LLC is opening a publishing house in the near future. Zeta Press (under construction) will house a wide range of literature addressing issues faced by men and boys. It will include literature not acceptable for mainstream sensibilities, which means it is the stuff you want to read. It will also host an array of other interesting nonfiction and fiction offerings.

    Simply put, we want to build the red pill library from hell.

    We have agreed to contract with a highly experienced editing team and will provide cover art graphics for those who desire it.

    Our contract with authors will be very competitive. We will provide you with extras like an editing progress account (RT) that allows you ongoing communication during the editing process and automated...

    Well congratulations honey, you finally put your name to something.

    • OldandNavy

      I like it.

  • Lucian Vâlsan

    So they burn books now.
    What part of Feminazi is still unclear?

  • Clint Carpentier

    So all we need to know now, is how much control over publishing they have. Burning books is a meaningless symbolic motion, if you can’t control what gets printed. As someone once said, “you gotta buy them to burn them, so keep burning.”

    • Peter Wright

      E.B.Bax spoke to that over a hundred ago:


      “When, however, the bluff is exposed… then the apostles of feminism,
      male and female, being unable to make even a plausible case out in
      reply, with one consent resort to the boycott, and by ignoring what they
      cannot answer, seek to stop the spread of the unpleasant truth so
      dangerous to their cause. The pressure put upon publishers and editors
      by the influential Feminist sisterhood is well known.”

    • Vương Vi-Nhuyễn – 王微軟

      Yep, she’s just paying for Christina’s next book, the real ”victim” here is her wallet, and the fact that it’s against recycling, so she’s also hurting the environment…

  • http://www.avoiceformen.com TheBibo Sez

    She’s practicing for when feminism “wins”, the patriarchy is smashed, civilization falls apart, and her darkened mud hut in the dead of winter gets a bit chilly.

    • OldandNavy

      You might be on to something, there.

    • DukeLax

      As long as gender-feminist males in washington…continue to guarantee these loud mouths a constant / steady supply of federal pork bloating dollars ( so they can buy male labor, and male made products)..these loud mouth will continue to “Inflame” the masses.

      • DukeLax

        Im begining to understand that the oppression of males in the future…will also be disguised under the pretext of “protecting women”

        • DukeLax

          American males fighting against this “war on man” is a true “david versus Goliath” battle. The eye that david would aim for on the modern Goliath… is the current perversions and manufactured statistics Alliances that have taken over American law enforcement.
          Another “eye of the Goliath”…that David would have aimed for is what Dr Farrell has coined the American “Media Lace Curtain”.

  • crydiego

    I know it is a symbolic act on her part but of what? I know of hundreds of feminist books filled with half truths and lies but I don’t want them destroyed. I want them around so they can be exposed for what they are. I’ve honestly never even thought about burning them.
    This was done to make herself feel relivent. She did this and got pictures to show that she is important to the struggle; to be on the front lines for the sisterhood. Yes, feminism is this empty and this childish act is part of feminism “jumping the shark.”

  • Flo

    She looks so oppressed by the Patriarchy.

    • peter parker

      No, the Patriarchy is making her burn the book, don’t you know all feminists are victims without accountability or thier own agency?

      • Magnus

        Of course. The Patriarchy can’t have all our…erm… THEIR secrets written down in books. So we make the feminists burn them for us!

  • peter parker

    No, what we see here is a Femnist coming to terms with her illness.
    See here how she sets fire to a book, not knowing how to make fire because the evil Patriarchy held it’s magic Science from her, so that she may make me a Sausage sandwhich.

  • Keith

    The irony is so deep it’s incalculable. It would be no more ironic to burn copies Fahrenheit 451, which would be a dangerous read for a feminist. The spread of ideas and emotions is dangerous to the women folk. Must we not eradicate that which would hurt people? Feels are evil because there is potential for bad feels. NO MORE FEELS! NO MORE FEELS!

    Furthermore, thinking about how they got the book is more disturbing. Did they steal it from a store or from someone else before or after they read it? Or did the actually pay for it…giving money to the publisher and in turn the author anyway? haha!

    • Jerry Camp

      Well, it looks like the cover has a 2nd store price tag on it (Goodwill, maybe?) So, someone bought book, at the very least.
      Come to think of it, where are the environuts to chastise her for burning the tome in a nasty, evil fireplace releasing all that pollution into the air?

  • Cecil Henry

    When you can;t win an argument, you try and burn it.

  • Shrek6

    I don’t see a woman doing anything. All I see is a spoilt little girl behaving in a typical manner that most little girls today behave like, when they see something they don’t like.

    It’s no big deal to CHS. Actually, this spoilt brat’s little publicity stunt, will probably help increase sales of the book, so CHS will only stand to make more money out of it.

    When I see spoilt brats behave like this, all I want to do is laugh at them, before turning my back on them and walking away.

    • Mike Hunt

      Exactly. I am very happy she did this. It’s already virus and it will only spread further, helping men and boys and women alike to see the truth about feminism at every turn.

      These are the most self-defeating idiots on the planet.

    I wonder if she is at home right now, blubbering quietly to herself about how mean everyone is being to her.

    I don’t doubt that she imagined no consequences beyond “you go girl!” while posting this sinker.

    I said it once and I’ll say it again, Feminism = Nazism

  • Matthew Lane

    Doesn’t this tell you everything you need to know about modern feminism? They still think its 1900 & books are still being printed on movable type printers, set by hand. Sorry feminists but burning the book doesn’t destroy the ideas, they still live on in all the other copies & the digital medium, not to mention the markets already going post scarcity, so anyone can order that book an have a copy printed.
    So yeah, not so much on the book burning. All you really did was waste your own money & I’m alright with that: any action you take that wastes your own money, while achieving nothing doesn’t bother me in the least. In fact it just pushes up sales of the book, which will result in more copies being made to support the demand for the book that you all caused by purchasing the book to burn.
    Supply & demand: You need to learn it.

    • CoffeeCrazed

      Probably paid for with grant money

      • Matthew Lane

        Still removes money from there hands to the book publisher & by extension the writer. It also means less chance of them using that money to do anything negative with…. Second best option this side of removing grant money from them.

      • DukeLax

        Someone got a federal pork bloating grant somewhere….for sure!!!

  • jbantifem

    This women shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near male children whatsoever. Even walking down the street.

    There are so many things I could call this vile, sad excuse for a woman. I’ll leave it at that though.

  • TPH

    Perhaps feminists should read books instead of burning them. I know it’s a pipe dream, but seriously, such a display of complete intolerance for ideas other than their own shows a complete lack of willingness to contemplate ideas that are not approved by Feminism, Inc. It also shows a disturbing pattern of hatred toward people and ideas that they don’t agree with. I remember reading that there was a big book burning in Berlin, Germany in 1933. Are we as a society going down that same path? I’m beginning to think we are and I am not willing to let a small minority of hate filled people drag us down that path again. The brown skirts are beginning to form a movement that all of us need to fight against.

        They aren’t even hateful sounding! Its bizarre!

      • earth one

        And she keeps repeating “______ is A Voice of Hate” over and over, just in case anyone else might question her message or disagree. Kinda like brainwashing…

    • PlainOldTruth

      Feminism, because it overtly undermines educational standards, has made an enormous contribution to economic collapse. And society full of residents (who no longer wish to be civics-aware cognizant Citizens) who are not competent in critical thinking and are naive about the nature of knowledge (assuming consensus is a replacement for science) cannot fight back against corruption of oligarchs and fraudsters.

    • jbantifem

      Video removed by user. Hmmm. Did it get flagged for being hateful perhaps? That would be a good thing. :-)

      • Mike Hunt

        She re uploaded it. Its still there.

  • earth one

    She’s not alone. Another member of The Sisterhood is with her. And after documenting their burning of yet another book that they don’t agree with, they retreated to their bedroom and made passionate love, without once removing their glasses, until the sun came up in the morning..LOL…

    These wimmin are pathetic, and laughable. But this is a perfect illustration of the fascism that lies deep in the bosom of their sacred ideology…

        • Jerry Camp

          Prog women like their men with built-in guilt and derision for themselves…pretty sure it’s part of their being ‘metrosexual’ or some such.

          Any man who dates this Nazi and knows about her politics needs to be locked up in an insane asylum. Either that or walk off the nearest high elevation.

          She’s got nothing to offer. There’s no way in hell a man could have a rational conversation with her and she isn’t much to look at. She’s breathing and that’s about all there is to her existence.

    No matter how much you disagree with something, I think it’s a horrible act to burn books.
    What’s even more horrible is when books are burnt because you think the subject is “icky” I mean look at the smile on that persons face as she is holding up a page, right after a close up of “Save the boys”.

    Clearly when you are so twisted that you want to BURN something that is not in agreement with your view of the world then it’s YOU who are the problem, not the rest.

    I mean it’s ALWAYS the villain in movies/books/games/etc that burn literature! Only time a hero does the same is if the book is magical and needs to be purged!

    • Alex Cockell

      remember the photos that came out of Abu Ghraib? That was the EXACT type of shit-eating grin on many of the female guards’ faces as they did thumbs-ups to camera…

      • Magnus

        If you are going to do stupid shit, don’t put it on camera. *sigh*

        But I guess the feminazis wanted it on camera to “teach us a lesson” or something.

    Well, Gentlemen. As you can see, feminists clearly care about equality between both genders. Right? Right? Didn’t think so.

  • ReyekoMRA

    I find the smile on her face in the third image absolutely disturbing. How can a sane person look so happy when doing something as juvenile as burning a book. how can they look so happy when the symbolism behind the act is to say that the myriad problems boys face should only get worse? It is sick.

    • Alex Cockell

      Remember Sabrina Hartman from the Abu Ghraib shots? Or even Lynndie England? Same pose.

  • PlainOldTruth

    A Voice for Men is sooooo unsophisticated. You guys probably do not even have subscriptions to The New Yorker. How can you expect anybody with a degree from an elite college to take you seriously? A Voice for Men is sooooo not hip and cool.

    You take domestic violence so seriously. But domestic violence is, in reality, funny. It is HILARIOUS. Sophisticated readers of The New Yorker know this.

    Ha, ha, ha, ha …..

  • Max Müller

    I did not think this would ever be necessary, but here’s a heads-up for too many SJWs and feminists to count: People are considered evil when they DO evil things, not when someone simply tells you “They’re evil, therefore you must fight against them!”

    Again: If you want to see what someone/a group is about: Look at their deeds. The nazis were not evil because someone pointed their finger and said “Look at ‘em, they’re bad. Let’s go kill’em all!”. There were and are considered evil bastards because of the hateful shit they did.
    You know, like burning books.

    “Here name is Donna Regalia, and this is her (empty) Etsy shop:https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/W

    Here is original book burning post: http://dinaslappel.tumblr.com/…”

    thanks mike for the links and the name of this smiling ejit who burns books she doesn’t agree with.

    Donna Regalia= Nazi.

    there you go, thanks to the power of the internet the assoication of donna as a nazi will forever be held inthe wild wild west of the net.


    1. Donna needs a course in marketing/communication. The first association we all recall with the images of donna book burning is the nazi book burning of things they refuse to accept. That is the downward slide of the the end. history has shown what happened to such people.I think it won’t take long for someone to photoshop a swaztika armband onto her arm complete with a silly moustache( might be an improv ement?).

    2 Donna can now be the poster child of feminism. Given that educational preferences are given to women over men, i wonder if the model( feminist) of education has somehow failed given people like donna.

  • Vương Vi-Nhuyễn – 王微軟

    The irony is that she’s burning Feminist literature, it’s sad to see that when a Feminist says and does what the entire movement claims to be for that you’d see this type of backlash, let’s be happy that it’s just one disturbed (and unintelligent) individual rather than this becoming a new trend in the Femerrhoid movement, I hope that Equity-Feminists will rise up and beat these misandrists out of their movement, a Gender Egalitarian movement can only exist if the 2nd- & 3rd-Wave Feminist Organizations will welcome A Voice for Men and ALL associated organizations to create joint fora and open dialogues for ending the issues that all of us face, where the Feminists will concentrate on women’s issues, and we’ll concentrate on men’s issues, but until that day those organizations are anti-gender egalitarian, and in fact against what they claim to believe in.

    • Mike Hunt

      On the contrary, I very much hope this becomes trend. Three more stuff like this happens, the better the outlook for the future of western society.

    Here’s why censorship is ultimately self defeating. In the 1980’s, parents wanted all children’s television to be educational. So all Saturday morning cartoons were gutted and turned into infotainment trash. The response was teenagers started importing anime tapes from Japan and we all got to learn the term “tentacle rape”. Censorship invites an extremist response. Censor video games? Get rape games from Japan. Censor books? More extremist books will get written. There is no point where book burning is going to make things better for women.

  • Xbillion

    Just some attention w̶h̶o̶r̶e̶ on the internet. Misguided, silly brat. Feminism will probably make her a much unhappier person in the long run. Sad really, American girls getting their minds warped and made to be so ungrateful and hateful when they have it better than almost all their sisters throughout history and in most of the world today.

  • ghebert

    What’s even more disturbing is that some day, these women will (through artificial insemination I’m sure…penises are ‘icky’ after all) be mothers to sons and raise them to be completely messed up. That is, if they don’t selectively abort them first.
