1) He is reaching out to MRAs now, giving interviews to the “manosphere” and criticizing male feminists for “only” speaking about violence against women.

2) if you thought Jessica Coen let this asshat go because of ethical concerns or because she finally realized or was willing to admit what some people had been saying all along, the answer is a resounding NO. He was let go because he didn’t bring in the page clicks.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
