KARMA! Feminist-Owned Cafe That Charged 18% “Man Tax” Goes Out of Business

In a not so shocking turn of events, a radical feminist owned anti-male vegan cafe has gone out of business after announcing an 18% “man tax.”

Bizpacreview.com reported that the cafe in Melbourne, Australia that charged an 18% “man tax” shuttered this week after less than two years in business.

The Handsome Her restaurant made headlines in 2017 when it announced rules giving preferred seating to its female customers and charging an 18% premium for men to “protest the gender pay gap.”

Not surprisingly, the “man tax” was widely slammed by both men and women, who called it discrimination.

Handsome Her owner Alex O’Brien, a feminist activist, said the backlash that her “man tax” caused underscores why lesbians must “dismantle the patriarchy.”

A café that caused controversy by charging male customers a “man tax” to bridge the gender pay divide is closing down.

Handsome Her, a vegan café in Melbourne Australia, sparked global debate in 2017 when it announced it would offer women priority seating and charge men an 18 per cent premium to “reflect the gender pay gap”.

After two years of trading, the café announced it would be closing its doors for good on April 28.

Co-owner Alexandra O’Brien has not detailed the reason behind the move, but Handsome Her has endured a widespread backlash for its perceived reverse sexism.

In a post entitled ‘A Handsome Farewell’, Ms O’Brien wrote: “It’s been a wild journey to say the least. 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 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.

“We were just one little tiny shop on Sydney Rd that was trying to carve out a swathe of space to prioritise women and women’s issues, and suddenly we became the punching bag of Melbourne and the internet.

“Yes, we are the evil, discriminatory, man-hating d***s 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…”
