An article about why New Zealand women are the worst in the Western world, penned by a man who declares himself "sick of the overpriced feminazi cesspools of Australia and New Zealand" has sparked the ire of Millie Elder-Holmes and others online.

Sharing the article from website, which lists one of its most popular posts as "How To Be The A****le That Beautiful Women Love", Elder-Holmes expresses her disappointment in the misogynistic piece, written under the name Hamish Rangi a year ago and currently circulating on social media.

Under a series of subheadings, the article describes Kiwi women as "painfully average" with "poor style" who are "aggressive and profane", "too masculine" and - what is deemd in this instance a negative trait as well - "feminists". It makes reference to The Bachelor, female rugby players, the viral phone call "Karen Wants Her Twenty Dollars Back" and a Durex survey on promiscuity statistics around the world.

Elder-Holmes, who shared the post via her CleanEatsNZ Facebook page, has garnered nearly 300 comments from people who took pity on the author's wife or girlfriend and praised Kiwi women as "our fiery staunch all shapes all sizes all nationality women (sic)."

Some flagged that Return of Kings was clearly a men's rights activism group, but when the website caught the attention of Huffington Post back in 2015, the news outlet clarified "the Return of Kings claim they are not men's rights activists. They are, however, anti-feminist."
