White Supremacist Chris Cantwell’s 8 Dating Tips Are Horrifying
When news broke that OKCupid banned white supremacist Chris Cantwell from its platform, his “8 Online Dating Tips, for the Ladies” also surfaced. Note: Cantell was featured in the Vice Charlottesville documentary calling Heather Heyer’s murder justified. In his dating post, he says things like, “your boundaries are complete bullsh*t” and “if all I can see is your face – you’re a fat girl.”
His post is a haunting reminder that toxic masculinity feeds oppression and violence. In a world where 98% of mass shooters are men (think: Dylan Roof) and nearly half of all murdered women are killed by intimate partners, we must challenge this deadly status quo. At The Representation Project, we’re doing this work every day.
