    Feminist Vegan Cafe That Charged 18% 'Man Tax' Shuts Down After 24 Mos

    "The owner of a Melbourne vegan cafe that hit men with an 18% surcharge to highlight the gender wage gap has failed after two years, according to the Daily Mail. The 'Handsome Her', owned by green activist Alex O'Brien, announced that it was tackling gender inequalities in 2017 by charging men more and seating women first.
    Billed as a safe space for women and lesbians, the eatery attracted widespread criticism online.
    "The man tax blew up the internet, an idea that we didn’t think was all too radical, yet the way the world responded showed us how fragile masculinity is and solidified the necessity for us to confront and dismantle patriarchy," reads a farewell post on Facebook . . .

    "Yes, we are the evil, discriminatory, man-hating dykes who charge men more when didn't you know the wage gap doesn't even exist!? Meanwhile gentlemen’s social clubs live on and strong around Melbourne and the world over…

    Who would have imagined that strip clubs would do better than "man-hating dykes" who charge an extra 18% based on gender alone . . ."

    Commenters: "Get woke, Go broke!"
    "no doubt busy looking for a beta who has inherited for a quick divorce rape, so the cafe can open again for a few more months."
    "
    What's the over and under on them spitting on the food (of male customers)?

    "I would be very worried about being poisoned by lesbians.
    Not joking."

    This is great news, put those worthless man hating cunts out of buisness. I love it, best news I’ve heard all day. I think I’m gonna go eat at at man owned restaurant, and I’ll add a 18 percent charge myself on top of the tip just to make sure his restaurant stays in buisness, and right before I leave his restaurant, I’ll say thankyou, for not being a women lesbian cunt.

    Well, that idea worked a treat didn't it?

    Now instead of their staff getting 'womens wages'....they'll now be getting 'no wages'.

    Naturally, it wasn't her fault it shut down. It was men and their 'fragile masculinity'. Is there a woman, anywhere, that has ever taken responsibility for a failure??

    I bet she still thinks that it was a damn fine idea.

    From another article, dissension in the ranks:

    In its struggle against the patriarchy, Handsome Her was surprised to learn “that it wasn’t only men’s rights activists targeting” the business, but also those within its own community. Handsome Her was “taken aback to find that many people in the LGBTIQA+ community have as much aversion to us using the word ‘lesbian’ as the men’s-rights activists.”

    When dingbat females run a business, they need to get it through their fat heads that the official position of the business should be that it has 'No Opinion' of anything controversial at all, and welcome all customers and their money equally. No opinion on race, religion, sex, marriage, abortion, The Confederacy, the President...nothing at all, and they should train their employees to give non-answers when douche-bag customers shit test them about it.

    And in some places all that LBQT-ELEMENOPEE garbage also includes a 'P' for pedosexual and they are not even kidding about it.

    The irony is how they are missing the tolerance of the 'patriarchy.' If there was a cafe that charged more for whimyn--because the pay gap is fiction--it would have been firebombed. I suggest they try to live in a pure matriarchy for a while. It would quickly devolve into a hormonal yeast colony and they would kill each other...literally.

    Even a slightly lower than average IQ person would understand the incoming failure, any man clever enough would never trust the food those humanoids were to bring him while any man good enough to gain his own money would never accept such discrimination.

    Regarding women, most of them still need/expect a man to buy them drinks so see line nr1.

    Businesses work on planning and economics, sometime on popularity but never on "moral" or emotions.

    Whether a business can politicize itself depends on its size and balance sheet. That place was just a speck. If they'd played it smart, they'd have stayed neutral until they'd grown to a few more locations and started making serious profit, and only then transitioned to the typical StarbucksGoogleApple hate/intolerance mode. At that point they might've gotten away with it.

    "So, let's open a business catering to the intersection of 5% of the population (lesbians) and another 5% (vegans)."

    Thing is - it could have worked. It could have worked just fine, in Melbourne. I bet they went out of business for reasons that have almost nothing to do with Teh Ghey. Most restaurants fail. I bet they just fucked up the money. Or had bad service. Or any number of things.

    -- EDIT --

    The company touted its ethical and ecologically conscious practices, such as “abandoning take-away cups, single use straws and napkins, by shopping locally and supporting women owned businesses.”
    Why do businesses use take away cups? it's cheaper. Why do businesses use disposable paper napkins? It's cheaper. Why do businesses shop at the bland corporate wholesale food market? It's cheaper (and they always have what you need). What happens when you pick your suppliers based on what genitals they have? You miss cheaper deals offered by suppliers with the wrong genitals.

    And look at their (channelling Gordon Ramsey) fucking menu:

    Rosa Parks - Layered mushroom maple roasted pumpkin and homemade béchamel with shredded cheese in a beetroot brioche bun with butterfly pea mouse, five spice crumble, heirloom tomatoes and almond feta $22.5
    Not the sort of thing you'd want to eat every day. And five spice? We are talking chinese five spice here? With anise? Matching that with cheese (not vegan, BTW) and beetroot? Sounds revolting. Who invented this horror? Maybe it all comes down to the food.

    Having binged-watched Kitchen Nightmares, that menu has ten items - not too bad in itself - but each having a half-dozen fussy ingredients that are tricky to source. If they'd flogged vegan baked beans on toast and coffee for the breakfast crowd, they might still be in business.

    Not a huge surprise, and blaming it on fragile masculinity is bullshit. The fucking dykes didn't keep their business afloat because fragile masculinity? They seriously expected men to eat there in the first place? They seriously even wanted it? Bullshit. They built a cosy man-free safe space because they wanted it that way. Without the free publicity off the internet, they'd have been out of business even quicker. Indeed, that's the whole point of the man tax: it was a gimmick. It probably worked. Just not well enough.

    I bet that the staff were over or (more likely) underpaid, the service was variable, and at the end of it all the food wasn't very nice. Just another restaurant going down.

    I wish I could say "only in Australia", but we all know this sort of buggery isn't confined to the land down under.

    Those kind of people can only survive in government. Here in the real world they don't stand a chance!

    These cunts are so fucking stupid it literally amazes me. You open a business which is openly sexist and discriminatory towards males (which is also illegal, I'm pretty sure) and then you're surprised those men don't want to do business with you? And then when men predictably don't want to patronize your store and it goes out of business, it's men's fault for having "fragile masculinity" and the "patriarchy" is to blame?

    Like seriously, how does any of this even compute? We don't owe anyone our business or money. Last I checked this was a free market economy. We have the freedom to choose how we spend our money, and if we don't want to hand it over to a bunch of man-hating feminist bigots, that's our god-given right. It amazes me the gall these people have to do something so blatantly sexist and hateful, (not to mention illegal) and then to have the audacity to turn around and blame men for it when it fails.

    Just absolutely unbelievable.

    As if they are saying, "Hey, men, why won't you help us hate you? You are bad, bad, bad! Don't worry, we won't spit in your food! That would be wrong-thinking!"

    Feminist women probably avoided the place due to issues with "how they feminist". Find me two feminists who can talk for 5 minutes without finding ONE MAJOR POINT to disagree on and I'll be shocked. Usually these social justice warrior types have a 10-page list of things "evil people" do. They are, of course, beyond reproach and all knowing. So, they find fault in most regular joe's but also other feminists and SJWs. Infighting is so off the charts you don't even need to trigger feminists anymore. They're already triggered by trans-women and other feminists. It's fucking awesome, and even better with a comfortable chair and popcorn.

    I didn't know that but I hope you're right. Nothing would please me more than to know the enemy is eating its own.

    Feminist Vegan Cafe...those words alone would completely deter me from that shithole. Nothing of value lost. What sane man, or what man with any semblance of testosterone would even bother going into a place like that? Hope she's giving that failed business a proper burial.
