VICE – This misogynist* wants you to boycott Mad Max: Fury Road because he doesn’t like feminism.

*It seems as though Aaron Clarey was incorrectly identified as a Men’s Rights Activist. I sincerely sort of regret the error, given that 1) MRAs and other strands of misogynists often overlap with similar woman-hating rhetoric, and 2) there were, in fact, MRAs on the website A Voice for Men voicing support for a boycott of the new Mad Max film because of its strong female protagonist. As far as slip-ups go, this is relatively minor considering that both Clarey and the folks at AVfM are sexist dicks.
