Conservative candidate shares Facebook posts on drunk women, latent homosexuality and “being a man”

Looking for an MP who understands the characters of drunk women, can spot signs of latent homosexuality and knows what "being a man" is all about? The Conservative Party of Canada could have just the candidate for you.

Looking for an MP who shares Facebook posts on the characters of drunk women, signs of latent homosexuality and what “being a man” is all about?

The Conservative Party of Canada could have just the candidate for you.

It turns out Conservative candidate Konstantin Toubis, running in the Toronto-area riding of King-Vaughan, is prolific in sharing Russian listicles over Facebook on these very topics – and all since deciding to run for office.

Toubis told PressProgress he does not share the opinions of any of the material he shared on Facebook, but “re-posted” it in order “to show people how bad it is.”

“It’s information for people to read just like a newspaper article,” Toubis added. “It doesn’t mean you support this.”

Here’s a translated countdown of 4 Russian listicles that Toubis has shared on issues relating to sex and gender.

1. Alcohol and the character of a woman

“Did you know that you can tell a lot about a woman from the kind of alcohol she prefers?” asks a listicle titled “alcohol and the character of a woman” that profiles the characters of women and always seems to end with them blacking out, for some reason:


Here are a few points from the listicle Toubis shared:

  • “Whiskey – women who are confident and don’t have complexes. After drinking, they are wild and unpredictable. They become drunk quickly and don’t like to recall the night before in the morning because they can wreck a lot.”

  • “Tequila – for extravagant and explosive ladies. They can be violent and dangerous when drunk, but will blackout after a few rounds.”

  • “Gin and Tonic – Women who enjoy this drink like to put on an intellectual face and discuss things of which they have not the slightest idea. They get drunk quickly and can’t remember what happened to them in the morning.”

2. The Rules of Attraction

And Toubis also shared this listicle about the “rules of attraction”:


Here are some translated points from this listicle:

  • “If a woman offers you sex but you, for whatever reason, can’t accept her offer, don’t tell her the truth about [her] crooked teeth or large nose.”

  • “If you go on more than three dates with a girl and make no attempt to sleep with her, you are a scoundrel who is wasting precious time on her biological clock.”

  • “If you catch your girlfriend with a woman, you have the right to silently undress and join them.”
  • “A man never raises his hand to a woman… There are other body parts to raise for a woman.”
  • “If she is pregnant and refuses your offer of marriage, politeness demands that you wait until her morning sickness has passed and then ask again. Maybe this time she won’t listen to your proposal with such a sour face.”

3. “Being a man is hard”

This listicle is about how “being a man is hard”:


Here is some of the advice contained in this listicle:

  • “If you think you are fat, you probably are.”
  • “Learn to interact with the toilet seat. You’re not a little girl after all. If you need it put down, do it yourself.”
  • “Tears are blackmail.”

4. Signs of a mentally healthy man? Not “a latent homosexual,” apparently.

Another listicle Toubis shared in March covered the areas of mental health and sexual orientation, entitled “Seven signs of a mentally healthy man.”

Sign number seven? A mentally healthy man “likes full female hips. Fans of bony behinds are infantile and irresponsible souls.”

The blog adds, “this is also a sign of a latent homosexual.”


UPDATE:  Toubis deactivated his Facebook account following publication of this story.
