Ryking has long been considered a problem in the tumblr community for his increasingly misogynistic views. Lately, he has taken to defending rapists, calling women who disagree with him "feminazis," using gendered slurs against women, and repeatedly heaping praise upon men who have threatened to beat and rape women. He is not a positive representation of the tumblr community and should not be in a leadership/editorial position.

      This is important because tumblr is a safe space for me. People like him contaminate that space

      Sexual, racial, gender violence and other forms of discrimination and violence in a culture cannot be eliminated without changing culture.

      -- Charlotte Bunch

      “We have to start looking at the world through women’s eyes’ how are human rights, peace and development defined from the perspective of the lives of women? It’s also important to look at the world from the perspective of the lives of diverse women, because there is not single women’s view, any more than there is a single men’s view.”

      -- Charlotte Bunch

      Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women's issues.

      -- Charlotte Bunch

      “The state of the world today demands that women become less modest and dream/plan/act/risk on a larger scale.”

      -- Charlotte Bunch

      Women have a lot to say about how to advance women's rights, and governments need to learn from that, listen to the movement and respond.”

      Misogyny and rape apologism are never acceptable. In a patriarchal society, such vitriol is toxic. Also, as a half Jewish woman, I'm extremely offended by his use of the term "feminazis" to compare any group to Hitler and his followers, who are responsible for the deaths of millions, including family members of mine.

      Alex is obviously an unstable individual that's long lost his capacity of self-regulation. Wherever he's given free reign there will be hurt, pain, & heartache.!. Personally, I've privately speculated on the possibility of his mentality being that of a functional psychopath. This man is waaaaay off base and MUST be restrained by way of outside & quite overt applied force.!.
