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.
Fisher has been under fire since the Daily Beast reported that he was behind a men’s rights forum known for its comments degrading women, questioning female intelligence and denying rape. Tuesday’s hearing marked the first time the public and Fisher could respond to allegations in an open forum.
In brief opening remarks, Fisher said he doesn’t “hate women” and denied a new report that he still oversees the Reddit forum – known as “The Red Pill.”
Redpillschool has authored a number of controversial comments, including an essay-length “thought experiment” titled “All Women Lie About Rape.”
“Feminists are obsessed with rape because we live in a rape fantasy culture, where feminists wish they were hot enough to be rape-able,” wrote redpillschool. Marital rape, he added, should not be a crime because “the contract of marriage is the verbal and written consent for sex.”
