Belinda ‘Love’ Rygier: Sex addict blames feminists for the rise in misogyny

Sex addict who slept with 700 men blames high-profile FEMINISTS for the rise in misogyny because ‘man-hating attitudes’ drive boys to toxic ideology

A former Bachelor star and recovered sex addict has taken aim at high-profile Australian feminists she believes are inadvertently causing a surge in misogyny by ‘hating on’ men.

Belinda ‘Love’ Rygier, who overcame her addiction after bedding more than 700 men, singled out Abbie Chatfield and Clementine Ford as the worst offenders in her opinion.

She even compared them to toxic influencers on the opposite side of the ‘war of the sexes’, including disgraced social media star Andrew Tate, whose misogyny has seen him kicked off social media platforms such as TikTok.

‘I think “good on her” for her personal success. But her beliefs around feminism are actually misandry,’ Ms Rygier said of Chatfield.

Misandry refers to the hatred of men. Some male-dominated online communities claim misandry is widespread as a result of feminism ‘going too far’.

By contrast, many feminists argue misandry and misogyny cannot be compared due to gender inequality in society, and doing so is a false equivalence.

‘I don’t agree with how she treats men,’ added Rygier, who runs bootcamps to promote healthy and stable relationships.

Rygier said Chatfield and Ford ‘trigger’ her with their sometimes outlandish statements about men. 

Ford, a best-selling author and commentator, infamously tweeted that ‘coronavirus isn’t killing men fast enough’ at the height of the pandemic. She later apologised following public outrage.

Chatfield also once claimed ’40 per cent of men are paedophiles’.

‘How [Chatfield] speaks about them. I don’t follow them as they trigger me, her and Clementine Ford. How they hate on men…’ Rygier said.

Rygier said she wasn’t surprised to see men and boys retreat into toxic and sexist online communities – dubbed the ‘manosphere’ – because of these hostile attitudes that are amplified by the media.

‘They wonder why men are stepping back into misogyny as it is this whole pendulum swinging. Misogyny causes misandry, which we are labelling feminism,’ she said.

‘It’s like someone says, “I f**king hate men,” so the other says, “I f**king hate women.”‘ 

Rygier favours an attitude that stresses respect for all.

When contacted for comment via email on Tuesday, Ford told Daily Mail Australia: ‘I have literally no idea who Belinda Love is.’

Chatfield did not respond.

The former dating show contestant now runs bootcamps to promote healing and self-esteem in relationships, a subject she is passionate about.

‘In relationships, we don’t get taught how to relate to people. It’s just assumed that we know because we grow up in a family. But there’s a lot more to it,’ she said.

‘There’s a lot more to it than people think. They think you can go on a date and find love and that’s it.’
