The founder of a men’s only social media site modeled on Facebook issued a warning this week threatening the lives of women who attempt to sign up.
The creator of ‘Manbook,’ identified as Joschua Boehm — but who also uses the names Peter Nolan, Peter-Andrew: Nolan, and Joschua-Brandon: Boehm — wrote on his newly-launched site, “We would ask you women to respect our rights as you wish your rights to be respected. If you are unwilling to respect our right to freedom of association do not expect men to respect your right to life. Ok?”
Boehm, who has a history of online anti-woman rhetoric, also maintains a website called Crimes Against Fathers where he “names and shames” women he believes have perjured themselves when leveling accusations of rape, sexual assault, or pedophilia against men.
In an interview with Buzzfeed in 2013, Boehm, speaking as Peter Nolan, said of CAF, “It’s a site that men could come to had they been a victim of a crime. The family courts are used to destroy men like this.”
In 2013, Nolan falsely identified a Ohio University student of filing a fake sexual assault claim against a fellow student, causing the misidentified young woman to have to leave school and delete her social media presence after receiving a deluge of harassment online.
On the “Manbook’ website, Boehm wrote, “Ladies, we have called the site ManBook for a reason. We do not wish to have women present. We wish this to be a place where men and boys down to about the age of 16 can come and discuss the issues on their minds without the censorship of fascist [Face]book.”
“We have asked politely for women to not register but you are registering anyway. This shows total lack of respect for our right to freedom of association. We do not wish to associate with women in this place. Period, ” he wrote. “Since women have so immediately shown us men that you do not respect our right to freedom of association we will summarily delete any account that has a womans (sic) name on it.”
Boehm went to write, “So. Ladies. Learn what a right is and do not be violating the rights of other people, especially men, if you are not prepared to have your rights violated in return. Ok?”
Boehm, under the Peter Nolan name, also maintains a YouTube channel dedicated to videos of his own speeches urging lawmakers to change laws he feels are unfair to men, as well as uploaded videos of men ranting about women they believe have done them wrong.
