Razor blade hoax

There was a claim circulating that feminists had placed stickers at a Manchester railway station with razor blades behind them. That never did make much sense – wouldn’t they be visible behind a flat piece of paper? Also why would feminists seek to discredit themselves that way? Also what about the possibility that this is just yet more of the pretending that women are the source of violent aggression and men are their powerless victims?

So anyway, the police checked, and sure enough – it was bullshit.

Sticker claims – Manchester Oxford Road

British Transport Police (BTP) were made aware of a tweet – dated 5 September – stating that stickers, with razor blades behind them, were put up in the toilets of Manchester Oxford Road train station.

Officers have attended the station to investigate this claim and have confirmed there is no evidence of this.

BTP has a tried and tested system in place for dealing with hoaxes designed to cause minimum disruption whilst ensuring the safety of members of the public and rail staff.

Nevertheless, hoaxers waste considerable police time and divert our much-needed resources from other duties. We will continue to monitor the situation and will take further action should this malicious activity continue.

Women as a class are not the oppressors of men as a class. Making up stories about razor blades behind feminist stickers is not going to flip that.
