The embattled 46 year old ‘male feminist’ writer and Pasadena Community College professor who long claimed to be a reformed sexual predator and addict has announced his departure from public life, and, in an interview with The Cut cited an extramarital affair and ongoing mental health issues.I honestly cannot think of a single individual I am less surprised to hear turned out to be a creepy, adulterous pervert. As a general rule, the more a man publicly lectures others about the importance of not being creepy, and the more "feminist" he proclaims himself to be, the more likely it is that he is a creepy pervert who is barely managing to keep his urges under control. It's exactly like the way ex-smokers preach the anti-smoking gospel and alcoholics lecture everyone on teetotalism.
The details of this marital infidelity are not known, but in January 2013, Schwyzer, then 45, had a brief but torrid texting, telephonic and online fling with a 27 year old woman named Christina Parreira, also known is “sex worker activism’ circles as Christina Page — and in webcam/amateur porn circles as Gabriela “Ela” Stone. According to Parreira, Schwyzer acknowledged that revelation of their fling would be “career-killing” for him — Hugo has called older men who are “into” younger women – such as men in their 40s being attracted to and pursuing women in their 20s – dirty old men and “creeps.”
So, how long does everyone expect "his departure from public life" to last? If Carlos Danger is any guide, he'll be running for the mayor of Los Angeles soon. This is, of course, very sad news for the androsphere, as I see no way that Roissy is going to be able to survive hearing about Schwyzer's self-immolation without laughing himself to death.
“I’m done,” [Schwyzer] wrote. “I surrender the field to the critics who wanted me gone from feminist spaces.”
What a pathetic charade. What a gargantuan fraud. And what a monstrous hypocrite. But the only thing remarkable about this revelation is how it will surprise absolutely no one on either side. I do have to salute his "off-brand" comment, though. That could be useful in a broad range of contexts. "Yes, I was speeding, officer, but that is very off-brand for me."
