Annals Of Korean What-The-Fuckery

From the JoongAng Daily:

“The body of an anti-feminist who leapt from the Mapo Bridge on Friday in a publicity stunt gone wrong was found yesterday. After four days of search efforts, rescue workers said they found the body of Sung Jae-ki floating in the Han River near Seoul’s Sogang Bridge, about 1.4 kilometers (0.87 miles) from where he entered the water, at around 4:10 p.m. yesterday.”

Delightful.  So just who was the anti-feminist He-man?  Well:

“Sung, a self-proclaimed anti-feminist, had been trying to raise donations for Man of Korea, his financially troubled male rights group. What was supposed to be a highly publicized stunt turned out to be a fatal miscalculation as Sung disappeared below the water after jumping from the bridge, and remained missing over the weekend.”

I’ve always found the central premise of Men’s Rights Activists to be pretty damn morally reprehensible.  Turns out, they’re kinda stupid to boot.
