Feminist Apparel’s Male Owner Accused of Sexually Abusing Women

This is a shocking, unexpected turn of events that no one could have predicted since the last time it happened.

Let’s go all the way back to June. “Ivy League anti-rape activist charged with child porn, sex with a 13-year-old”.

And now, still in June, the favorite apparel of the Women’s March (besides the “Farrakhan is My Homeboy” tees) proves to be…you’ll never see this coming… the work of… a virtue signaling progressive.

The employees of the popular clothing company Feminist Apparel thought they were creating tools for the resistance. The online store’s viral shirts and accessories — which feature sayings like “Cats against catcalls” and “Trans rights are human rights” — became staples at events like the Women’s March and Pride.

On June 21, Feminist Apparel was tagged in a Facebook post accusing Martofel of rape. The employees investigated and found a Facebook post that Martofel wrote in 2013 that describes his own sexual abuse of women, how he came to learn about rape culture, and that he was starting a company called Feminist Apparel as his “humble attempt” to “solve it.”

In interviews, Martofel said he came up with the idea for Feminist Apparel in college while brainstorming for a documentary he was making about sexual assault. A glowing 2014 piece in Forbes rehashes this discovery: “I learned what feminism is and preaches, and I thought it was incredible. I began working on a documentary about sexual assault on college campuses at my alma mater, and while I was brainstorming ways to raise funds to better carry out that project, I came up with the idea for Feminist Apparel.”
