Schwyzer is a semi-big deal in the feminist blogosphere, but is a divisive figure. He is highly criticized for his past, his narrow views of feminism, and the ways in which he has profited from his “bad boy redemption story.” During a period of alcohol and drug addiction he once tried to kill his girlfriend with fumes from a gas stove. He wrote about it on his blog, though the post has since been deleted. Schwyzer is now on his fourth marriage. He has described affairs with students in his writing. Feminists often criticized Schwyzer for focusing largely on the plight of the straight white man. Posted on August 9, 2013
