‘Legalise Rape’ Man Gets What He Deserves!

The internet is full of stories that make you feel genuinely angry when you reading them. For example, when we first heard about Roosh V and his belief that rape should actually be legalised (yes, really), we suspect that you probably thought “there’s a guy who needs a punch in the face”.

Thankfully, this guy has actually gotten his comeuppance when he went on a tour of the world and found that the people of Canada weren’t quite as friendly and open as the rest of the world sees them as. Justice was served and hopefully the rest of the world will see just why we shouldn’t be paying attention to a single word that this guy says!

About Roosh V

Those who don’t know who Roosh V is are the lucky ones. You haven’t heard the rubbish that he spouts or seen his smug face as he pretty much declares to the world what a god he is. Obviously, Roosh V isn’t his actual name, but it is how he has become known throughout the world.

He is basically a writer who also refers to himself as a “pick-up artist”. This means that he spends his time meeting and attracting sexual partners, seducing them with the way they speak and act and leaving them in a daze of lust. His writings also include a lot of antifeminism, which is no surprise given the fact that he believes that rape should be legal.

You might be thinking that there is absolutely no way that he would actually believe that, and I thought the same when I heard it. Saying that rape should be legal is a stupid idea, and surely we have misinterpreted what he said, right?

Wrong. He means exactly that. Back in February this year he published a post on his blog titled “How To Stop Rape”. In it, he goes on to say that we should legalise rape on private property. He believes that, by doing this, “a girl will protect her body in the same manner that she protects her purse and smartphone” and that “if rape becomes legal, a girl will not enter an impaired state of mind where she can’t resist being dragged off to a bedroom with a man who she is unsure of”. He goes on to say that it will also mean that “she will never be unchaperoned with a man she doesn’t want to sleep with” and that “after several months of advertising this law throughout the land, rape would be virtually eliminated on the first day it is applied”.

I want to know what kind of drugs this man is taking, because how on earth that would work as a concept is ridiculous. He is basically saying that women are not allowed to get drunk on private property (ie, their own home) in case they are raped. He is also suggesting that we aren’t at all protective of our bodies but we are of our smartphones.

I could honestly not give a fuck what would happen to my smartphone if I was in danger. It is a phone. It is replaceable. The same goes for a bag. But me? No-one has the right to touch without permission, and his belief that legalising rape would eliminate it follows the same idea that legalising prostitution and instead making the purchase of sex illegal will eliminate it. It just isn’t going to happen. It will just push it further underground and tell people that it is okay to commit horrific acts against others.

Attacked in Montreal

It would be easy to spend an entire blog talking about how wrong Roosh V is in his views of everything, but we aren’t here to point out what an idiot he is. What this blog is about is the fact that he received quite the cold reception in Canada, and that he got a little bit of payback from the women he believes he is superior to.

He was in a nice little bar in Montreal attempting to do what he does best, which is chat up a group of women. Well, we should say second best, because he seems to be even more effective at making the world angry. When there he suddenly found himself getting a lot of drink poured over him and he was forced to leave the bar as those in the bar followed, telling him to “get the fuck out of here” and questioning “how dare you come to fucking Canada?”

He really shouldn’t be surprised by this reaction, considering his trip to Canada actually managed to get a petition online, with 37,000 people signing it in the hope that he would not be allowed into the country. He has angered a hell of a lot of people with his views that women are just like disposable razors.

After the incident where he found himself chased out of a bar, the Mayor of Toronto, John Tory, has actually joined in with the thousands crying for him to leave and stop his lectures in the country. On his official Twitter page he spoke out, saying that Roosh V “and his hate speech have no place in our city and should have no platform here either”, and that he was “calling on those hosting this tour to do the right thing – cancel this show”. He was joined by the city councillor Norm Kelly, stating that Roosh’s “‘take’ on life is worthless garbage masquerading as provocative insight”.

Of course, Roosh has spoken out to say that his speech “doesn’t promote violence, harassment, or hate against any group”, and he even spoke out about the earlier incident where he got the pleasure of wearing some of Canada’s finest beers. “Hardened from battle in Montreal, we come to Toronto as righteous victors. We won’t stand down, we won’t apologize.”

It might seem that this troll is going to continue pushing his ridiculous views around and trying to spread them like an STI, but there is hope! Last year, the U.S. pick-up artist known as Julien Blanc found his Australian visa revoked when there was a public outcry about his seminars. Hopefully the same will happen to Roosh and so he won’t be able to spread his ridiculous ideas around.

However, there are some out there saying that preventing him from speaking would be taking away his human right to free speech. We don’t agree with his ideas, but should he really be prevented from speaking in the first place? What do you think on this topic? Does cancelling his seminars really take away his ability to talk about his views, or would he simply keep spreading the word on social media instead?

You can join in the debate on the Escort Sweden forum, or you could simply tell us what you think by writing in the comment box below. Personally, I would like to move to Canada and buy those amazing women who threw their beer in his face another one, just in case he came back to bug them further.
