20The incels are at it again. The manosphere is trying/threatening to report Snapchat and Instagram cam girls to the IRS for tax evasion, using the hashtag "#ThotAudit". (Three things you should know: 1.; many of said cam girls already are, in fact, paying their taxes. 2.; reporting someone to the IRS for tax evasion requires more financial information about the prospective offender than these dudes are likely to possess. 3.; the IRS mainly only bothers to persecute prosecute rich people and large corporations, not small-time offenders like any of these cam girls would be. So ultimately, therefore, this probably won't amount to anything more than an ego-stroking circle-jerk on the part of the incels in question).

22The Western video game Red Dead Redemption 2 features a suffragette as a NPC. YouTubers are gleefully creating, uploading and exhorting videos in which they kill her. Fellas, maybe, just maybe, this sort of thing is the reason why most women aren't too keen to date or have sex with you?
