Feminist Cafe That Charged 18% ‘Man Tax’ Goes Out of Business

These imbeciles implemented an 18% surcharge on men in protest of the “wage gap” between men and women.

Even if the wage gap is true, why are you punishing men that might be working a minimum wage job?

This is the same lazy thinking from the people who champion for reparations.


“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.”

A feminist-owned and operated cafe that made headlines around the world after introducing an 18% “man tax” on male customers will be closing its doors at the end of the month.

Handsome Her, a vegan establishment located in Melbourne, Australia, will be going out of business on April 28, according to an announcement on its website.

“When we opened Handsome Her in 2017, we expected that perhaps we might make a stir through our brazen public discussions of structural inequality and oppression,” the statement reads. “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.”

Handsome Her took aim at the backlash over its decision to institute an 18 percent tax on male patrons, sarcastically calling themselves “the evil, discriminatory, man-hating dykes who charge men more when didn’t you know the wage gap doesn’t even exist!?”

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.”

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.”

The activist cafe sparked controversy in 2017 after instituting anti-patriarchal “house rules” designed to hit back at sexism.


There’s not much of a market in the angry lesbian demographic.

  1. The true story of Little Big Horn was not about fighting Custer. When Major Reno opened fire on the village, the braves gladly took part in the battle as an opportunity to get away from their nagging squaws.

  2. Odd. The Hooters in Melbourne is doing booming business. Can’t see why these other ladies failed so spectacularly.

  3. personally i dont mind paying the 18%. I quite deserve it, yes, yes i do, we’ve been bad, all of us

    Kinda’ explains the reaction I got from ‘Handsome Her’ when I asked for a Sammich,,,

  5. @No Blushes

    You should have asked for a “Manwich” and a “King-sized” drink.

    Makes me wonder when the SJWs are going to target mattress makers for King and Queen sizes. It’s bound to happen.

  6. They started this crap right before the whole “I identify as female” thing blew up. Imagine if they’d been forced to serve men-who-became-women at the discounted price – what a hoot that would have been.

  7. I could be wrong, but from my pov there is no fragile masculinity & patriarchy in need of dismantling.
    Just stupid-sexist-feminism that ought to be confronted & dismantled – oh, wait. It is. Their misguided business is crashing as it should, reaching its destiny. Some times justice is denied, some times it isn’t.

  8. Wow, you open a restaurant business that serves vegan food that only a small percentage of patrons want and you insult half of the world’s population and raise prices on them in a biased fashion. Hmm.

    As noted, how did they even keep their doors open for a year? Probably sunk a huge amount of money into their virtue-signaling. I hope they lose everything and are reduced to abject poverty.


    If it only hurts themselves, I say be quite and let it work itself out, but usually it affects all of us.

  10. The world reaction to their radical idea didnt show how fragile masculinity is; it showed how feminism was high-jacked by inmates in the asylum

  11. “sarcastically calling themselves “the evil, discriminatory, man-hating dykes”

    That’s not sarcasm.

  12. “it showed how feminism was high-jacked by inmates in the asylum”

    Feminism was leftist from the get go.

  13. Mithrandir – Yer being quite generous to say that the Left ever figures ANYTHING out let alone giving them 10 years to do it! Rarely do they ever learn. They just keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results and we all know whut that’s called!

  14. “Handsome Her, a vegan establishment…”

    FOUND your problem! 😳

    MEN don’t eat @ overpriced vegetable stands. 😆

  15. Did they go out of business 18% faster than the average man-hating lesbian business?
    They shoulda got Gillette to buy them out.

  16. I feel hurt by this. I feel the 18% surcharge was ill advised. If they had applied a 20% surcharge everyone would feel better. I would feel better too.

  17. I’ve got an idea. Instead of opening a vegan cafe, how about getting a degree in Computer Science or Engineering. Then your non-existent wage gap would disappear.

  18. “Men objecting to being discriminated against, probably illegally, just shows how fragile they are.”

  19. If only they were capable of actually learning from this.


  20. This could not happen to a more deserving group of ignorant idiots. Failure is the inevitable consequence of stupidity.

  21. It sure was silly of them to feel men earn more or have well paid jobs even. I’ve been incomeless and jobless for 3+ years now and I’d have to pay 18% above just coz I might have oppressed women in some way by existing.
