What's Your Anger Mean? Anything?

When word broke that a project called Above the Game: A Guide to Getting Awesome with Women, a seduction guide with advice that constitutes harassment and rape, was about to pull in over $16,000 ($14,000 over its fundraising goal) the internet erupted into righteous fury.

I don’t know about you but all my social media was full of outrage. Almost as soon as they heard about it, people condemned it on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. People were writing blogpost after blogpost.

Kickstarter panicked and their panic lead to inaction. After Ken Hoinsky got his $16K, Kickstarter issued an apology, banned seduction guides, and donated $25,000 to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network). *


So the question now is:


IS YOUR OUTRAGE WORTH MORE THAN A LIKE AND A RANTY BLOGPOST?

*Should be noted too that Kickstarter will be able to write their donation off their taxes.*

Referral Contest

Okay, not much time left on the Hoods campaign. So here’s the deal--

REFERRAL CONTEST:

As long as you're logged in with your Indiegogo account, the campaign page gives YOU a specific link that I can track back to YOU.

Or, if you don't have an Indiegogo account, when you make a donation, for as little as a dollar, then the site gives YOU a special link that I can track back to YOU.

So, start sharing.

Once the campaign is over, then I'll take a look at the dashboard. Whoever draws the most people to the campaign, will get a signed copy of the book. If you've already ordered a copy, then I'll send you the poster; if you're already getting the poster, then I'll send you one of the pin-ups. If you're one of the two people in for the whole thing, then I'll come up with something else cool.
