Lawmaker Uses Online Pseudonym to Argue That All Women Are ‘Children’ and ‘Lie About Rape’ - Women in the World in Association W
Following an investigation by The Daily Beast, New Hampshire State Representative Robert Fisher has been revealed as the anonymous creator of infamously misogynistic Reddit community The Red Pill. Commenting on The Red Pill under the username Pk_atheist, Fisher had routinely derided women for having “sub-par intelligence” — and even suggested that he had installed video cameras in his bedrooms to prevent women from falsely accusing him of rape. In the wake of the investigation, Fisher has been asked to step down from his position by New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, who described Fisher’s comments as “horrendous and repulsive.”
Despite efforts by Fisher to distance himself from The Red Pill (TRP), it appears that he has continued to run the controversial subreddit under another alias — redpillschool. Pk_athiest had transferred his moderation duties for TRP to redpillschool in January 2013, shortly after Fisher lost his first political campaign.
Despite an overwhelming amount of evidence compiled by The Daily Beast in its investigation — including a number of email addresses connected to Fisher, not to mention his personal email address — Fisher is still distancing himself from the site and said any claim that he’s behind it is “categorically false.”
