NH State Rep Who Reportedly Created Reddit’s Misogyny Forum Resigns
Robert Fisher’s exit comes just hours after GOP lawmakers declined to take action against him.
Robert Fisher, the New Hampshire state representative who reportedly created Reddit’s women-hating, men’s rights forum The Red Pill, has resigned.
Just hours after a House committee voted along party lines to take no action against the 31-year-old Republican lawmaker, Fisher submitted his resignation to Speaker Shawn Jasper.

Last month, The Daily Beast linked Fisher to an online alias responsible for creating the misogynist site in 2012. Almost immediately following The Daily Beast’s requests for comment, the two Reddit accounts linked to Fisher were wiped, along with four blogs used to connect them. In a follow-up story, The Daily Beast reported that another account linked to Fisher posted that all feminists want to be raped.
“Feminists are obsessed with rape because we live in a rape fantasy culture, where feminists wish they were hot enough to be rape-able,” redpillschool, a high-ranking Red Pill moderator, wrote in April 2014. “Every woman wants to be attractive enough to be raped. It’s like the pinnacle of male desire, when he can’t stop no matter what.”
In statements, Fisher never denied created The Red Pill, and said he would “continue to stand strong for men’s rights and the rights of all.”
