RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

—First sentence of Sexual Utopia in Power (and it gets worse)

F. Roger Devlin is a white nationalist and men's rights activist. He is a contributing editor for racist screed The Occidental Quarterly[1] and writes for VDARE.[2]

He is particularly noteworthy for his essay Sexual Utopia in Power, which is the origin of many MRA subcultural memes, jargon and special definitions of words. It was originally published in the Occidental Quarterly in 2006 and came to the wider attention of the pickup artist subculture when Heartiste posted effusively about it in 2008.[3] It is now widely advocated in the manosphere, with the /r/redpill subreddit listing it in the sidebar as "essential reading".[4]

He has also done academic philosophy, writing Alexandre Kojève and the Outcome of Modern Thought (University Press of America, 2004).[5]

Devlin identifies as part of the alt-right,[6] which he describes as a "white advocacy"[7] movement, and is considered among its "most important thought leaders" according to VDARE.[8] Devlin attended the National Policy Institute conference which gained national attention after many in attendance performed Nazi salutes.[9] Devlin denounced this behaviour,[10] although he believed "there is nothing intrinsically wrong with" Nazi salutes.[6] Instead, he seemed concerned because such behaviour is too politically incorrect.
