Trigger Warning: Rape, Misogyny, Sexual Assault  

Roosh V is making headlines again. Last time he captured international attention was after publishing a bro-manifesto wherein he advocated for the legalization of rape on private property. Roosh insists his article was satirical (and it very well may be). But judging by the videos he creates, the books he writes, and the forum he hosts, many are not convinced. This go-round, Roosh has organized '165 meetings in 43 countries' for tribesmen to...do whatever it is they do. Roosh has plans to go to Australia, but they, both civilians and the government, have made it abundantly clear they don't want him entering their country. A change.org petition, with over 2000 signatures, is circulating the Internet requesting President Obama and Prime Minister Trudeau to bar Roosh V's entry into both Canada and the United States.

A few Canadian Mayors have spoken out against Roosh in the past.

Roosh frequently denies journalists interviews, leaning on misogyny to respond to female journalists. Roosh has requested the men on his forum to refrain from making jokes about rape because "the world is watching."

He's also racist (shocker).

Obviously, he has more than a few screws loose in his head.

Luckily, people around the world have sprung up and planned protests to counter this exclusive gathering of cishetero f**kboys.

The fact Roosh V has a career and can pay rent every month speaks to the how deep misogyny and sexism is in our societies.

Since the story has blown up on social media, Roosh V has changed the protocol for the meetups, creating new secret places to...do whatever they plan to do. Still, in the event they plan to meet at their original locations, please avoid the following places this Saturday at 8 p.m. local time.
