Reviled advocate of “legal rape” cancels worldwide meet-up after huge backlash


Detested by humans the world over, the blogger and “legal rape” advocate known as Roosh V abruptly canceled a worldwide meet-up that was supposed to take place in dozens of locales around the globe this weekend. Roosh, a self-described “neo-masculinist” who runs the group Return of the Kings, cited safety concerns as the reason for the abrupt cancellation of the controversial confab. “I can no longer guarantee the safety or privacy of the men who want to attend on February 6,” Roosh said in a statement on Wednesday, adding his apologies to any followers who were “let down” by the decision. Protests — some promising violence — were planned around the world in locations where the so-called “tribal meetings” were scheduled to be held.

Roosh outraged women in Australia over the weekend when he heralded his unwelcome visit to the country with a misogynistic tweet. “To all attractive Australian girls in age range of 18-22. I’m coming to your country and am free to meet for drinks,” he posted on the social media platform. He drew the ire of civilized people everywhere in the past when he contended in an opinion piece that rape occurring on private property should be legalized. His argument was that such a legal maneuver would work to protect women from rape. He has since walked back that comment and declared the article in which the shocking suggestion was made is a piece of “satire.” That’s really only a fraction of the reason Roosh is despised by so many. His anthology of books and the topics covered in them are a huge part of the reason too.
