Dave Hon, a digital editor for St. Joseph News-Press in Missouri, recently penned a riveting opinion piece titled, “Why I’ll Never Date A Feminist.” Within the 495 word article, Hon cites YouTube videos, articles dated back to 2009, and even Reddit to support his claims that the wage gap doesn’t exist, campus rape culture is bogus, and feminism ultimately makes women unhappy.
Naturally, feminists had some opinions about it.
Dave Hon: Why I will never date a feminist..
Every Single Feminist: That's fine.
Dave: Wait. Don't you want me to explain?

Now, it’s no secret that I definitely identify as a feminist. But the responses to Hon’s piece have been truly incredible.

Hon told the Daily News in an interview that it’s unfortunate people don’t seem to understand him, or the kind of relationship and marriage he ultimately wants.
At time of press, Hon is single.
