|Early Feminists:||Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all.|
|Men:||YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!|
|Mid-century Feminists:||Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.|
|Men:||YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!|
|Late 20th century Feminists:||Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.|
|Men:||YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!|
|Modern-day feminists:||Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.|
|Men:||THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!|
|Men:||THE END OF MEN IS NIGH! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!|
From the article:
An email to Utah State University threatened “the deadliest school shooting in American history” if the school did not cancel a lecture Wednesday morning by a well-known feminist writer and video game critic.
"Feminists have ruined my life, and I will have my revenge, for my sake and the sake of all others they’ve wronged," read the message from a sender who claimed to be a USU student.
The message threatened to rain gunfire and shrapnel upon a lecture by Anita Sarkeesian, creator of a feminist video blog and a video series on misogyny in video games. She is scheduled to speak at 11:30 a.m. at the Taggart Student Center Auditorium.
"A Montreal Massacre style attack will be carried out," warned the message, sent to multiple departments and individuals around campus. "I have at my disposal a semi-automatic rifle, multiple pistols, and a collection of pipe bombs."
After consulting with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, the university decided to host Sarkeesian’s lecture as scheduled, said USU spokesman Tim Vitale.
"We’re an institution of higher learning. We educate people. This is what we do," Vitale said. "This is a chance for students to listen for themselves to the topic, voice their opinions as they choose, and learn something."
The university planned to increase security for the lecture and forbid backpacks in the auditorium.
The writer goes by the moniker “Marc Lepine,” after a shooter who murdered 14 women at a Montreal engineering school in 1989. The writer, as Lepine did in his suicide note, wrote that “feminists have ruined my life.”
"We live in a nation of emasculated cowards too afraid to challenge the vile, misandrist harpies who seek to destroy them. Feminism has taken over every facet of our society, and women like Sarkeesian want to punish us for even fantasizing about being men."
He wrote that increased security was futile.
"Even if they’re able to stop me, there are plenty of feminists on campus who won’t be able to defend themselves," he wrote. "One way or another, I’m going to make sure they die."
Sarkeesian is most famous for her critiques of how women are depicted in video games and popular culture and has received many death threats and terror threats against her speaking engagements. Those threats have escalated since a 2012 online harassment campaign targeted her fundraising for the video series, “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games,” which analyzes female stereotypes in the games.
"Anita Sarkeesian is everything wrong with the feminist woman, and she is going to die screaming like the craven little whore that she is if you let her come to USU," the email states. "I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America."
Regardless of what you think about Anita Sarkeesian in particular, this is just sick.
My name is Ben Liebsch. I have this band i’ve been working on for a little while called you me and everyone we know. A few years ago my drinking and mental health issues got the better of me and this led to the rest of my band leaving. I would like to apologize for putting you and those men through that. For the last 3 year and nearly 7 months, i’ve been sober and working towards becoming a better human. I’m better than I was back then, but i’m not as good as I will be tomorrow.
This is a new site put together by a good guy named Joel Funk. It was made to provide easy access to everything we will be doing in the coming years. The section to the left contains a drop down menu with free downloads of the band’s entire discography. If you’ve never found yourself inclined to check the band out before, I think this would be an excellent opportunity to do so. If you’re already a listener, maybe you’ve missed a release in the last few years. Either way, I invite you to give everything a listen.
Thank you. There is more to come.
All six releases are available for free download.
I am insanely proud of my husband, and I love the group of guys he’s put together to continue this project forward (one of whom was my best friend who introduced us four years ago AND our best man!)

After three and a half years, I’m finally seeing full band You, Me, And Everyone We Know shows again. I may have popped out some tears. Also, got to see him with @jaketotp, whom I would not know without that band. Cool stuff. #ymaewk #somuchhappy #minusthespeedingticketigotthatnight
