4Channers Attempt to Scam Feminists With “FemCon2015,” Fail Miserably

Coooooonnnnnnnnnn!

Yesterday we received several emails from concerned readers asking us to sound the alarm about “FemCon,” a nonexistent “Feminist Convention” devised by some 4Channers to swindle the women of the Internet out of their money and expose feminism for the misandrist sham that it is (or something).

Fortunately, unlike the organizers’ insipid fake Twitter accounts, Internet feminists weren’t born yesterday:

The FemCon2015 Tumblr (complete with a #DownWithMales tag and the Con’s harrasment policy) still remains, as does the Internet’s undying scorn:
