Update: Feb 4, 2016 According to Valizadeh, the public meetings have been canceled due to the public outcry and lack of safety for his supporters.
This is as close as you’re going to get to a flashing neon sign that says, “KEEP AWAY”. Ladies beware of Curtis Hixon Park in Downtown Tampa this Saturday evening (Feb 6, 2016). Tampa is just one location of the 163 meeting locations planned to take place on the same day in 43 countries at 8pm local time. To see a list of the other 162 meeting locations, click here.
All of this is stemming from a man named, Daryush “Roosh V” Valizadeh. He’s a 36 year old writer and self-proclaimed pick-up artist. Many also [rightly] consider him to be an antifeminist – probably because of his primary tenant:
“Make rape legal if done on private property. I propose that we make the violent taking of a woman not punishable by law when done off public grounds.”
To be entirely fair, this is his backwards and contrived solution to eliminating rape – further elaborating, “Without daddy government to protect her, a girl would absolutely not enter a private room with a man she doesn’t know or trust unless she is absolutely sure she is ready to sleep with him.”
Please be safe out there and let alert any friends or family that may be in one of the 163 cities.
