On Monday, Julie Bindel, an apparently angry feminist who is described as a journalist, writer, broadcaster, researcher, and founder of “Justice for Women,” took to Twitter to declare that all men are rapists and should be incarcerated, then shot.
“Dear misogynist trolls I’m going to make things easier for you – save u some time,” she tweeted. “All men are rapists and should be put in prison then shot.”

So much for due process.
One person asked:

“If it looks like hate speech and sounds like hate speech there’s a good chance it’s hate speech,” Twitchy said. Unfortunately, it’s not, according to the left’s definition of “civility.”
Naturally, this didn’t sit too well with many on Twitter.
@bindelj We get it, you hate penis. If all men to you are rapists, are gay men rapists as well? That's not so PC of you.

@bindelj First prove that all men are rapists. Also, you are a sexist. I despise those who think killing others are justified.

We did a bit of digging into Bindel and found this.
According to what appears to be her literary agent’s website, Bindel “has been active in the global campaign to end violence towards women and children since 1979 and has written extensively on rape, domestic violence, sexually motivated murder, prostitution and trafficking, child sexual exploitation, stalking, and the rise of religious fundamentalism and its harm to women and girls.”
She also tweeted this:
Oh, and I am an ugly, manhating lesbian. I am SO desperate for new insults, I feel like running a competition.

Hardly the smartest thing to say on Twitter…
Earlier this month, she wrote a piece at the U.S. edition of the Guardian arguing that rape cases should not be heard by juries:
Almost a decade ago I wrote that rape might as well be legal. I feel the same way today. In 2013-14 in England and Wales, about 16,000 rapes were recorded by police, but only a third of these cases were sent to the Crown Prosecution Service. Approximately 15% of the recorded offences resulted in a charge. The actual attrition rate – meaning from reporting to conviction – is estimated at about 6%.
One potential solution to this worrying state of affairs is to do away with jurors in sex crime trials, and appoint a specially trained judge. I am wholly in favour of our jury system, but even more in favour of ensuring that rapists and other sex offenders do not walk free. New Zealand could be the first country to rid sex crime cases of jurors if one key recommendation from a recently published report by its Law Commission is implemented. The commissioners have suggested that there is a case for having sexual violence trials decided by a judge, either alone or with two expert “lay assessors”.
Clearly, she hates the idea of due process at least as much as she apparently hates men…
