We’ve long been of the belief that identifying yourself as a “male feminist” should be enough to put you on a watchlist of some kind, and this story is just more grist for that particular mill. After years of spewing his left-wing nonsense on Ars Technica, self-proclaimed feminist Peter Bright has been arrested by the FBI for attempting to solicit sexual encounters with children online.

“From on or about April 18, 2019 up to and including on or about May 22, 2019, in the Southern District of New York and elsewhere, PETER BRIGHT, the defendant, willfully and knowingly, did use a facility and means of interstate and foreign commerce to persuade, induce, entice, and coerce an individual who had not attained the age of 18 years to engage in sexual activity for which a person can be charged with a criminal offense, and attempted to do the same, to wit, BRIGHT used computers and/or telephones to communicate with an undercover FBI agent about arranging to engage in sexual activity with a purported nine-year old boy and a seven-year old girl, and attempted to meet with the boy and the girl to engage in sexual activity,” read the complaint against the writer.


Bright’s articles were not solely focused on furthering the left-wing agenda, but even a cursory look at his last month of output on Ars Technica shows a man obsessed with putting right-wing and “offensive” gamers in their place. He’s got a piece up celebrating Microsoft’s decision to distance itself from Minecraft creator “Notch,” who is known for making controversial remarks online about the transgender agenda.

He’s also got an article up praising Xbox chief Phil Spencer’s recent essay about the state of the video game culture.

“The purpose of his essay is to call on the gaming industry to work together to make gaming a safe space, one where gaming’s positive features can be celebrated, without being mired in the same toxicity as contaminates the rest of the online world,” Bright wrote.

Toxicity like…trying to get the digits of a seven-year-old.

We’re sure that not every “male feminist” has this kind of dark secret hidden in their closet. Well, we’re almost sure. No, we’re positive. Almost certainly not. Um, what were we saying?

Anyway, another predator bites the dust. And if Bright’s arrest takes another feminist perspective off the internet, so much the better.
