“Legalize Rape.” Only on private property, of course. While it sounds like misogynistic propaganda , it is actually the soapbox driven by the Return of Kings (RoK) disciples. This group of “neomasculinists,” headed by Daryush Valizadeh, better known as Roosh Vörek, scheduled rallies across the world on Feb. 6, pushing for the right to “make the violent taking of a woman not punishable by law when done off public grounds.”
Gays and XX chromosomes beware! You are not welcome! The website boasts, “This meeting is for heterosexual men only.”
Vörek, V for short, came up with his campaign while writing his satirical article, “How to Stop Rape.”
“By attempting to teach men not to rape, what we have actually done is teach women not to care about being raped, not to protect themselves from easily preventable acts, and not to take responsibility for their actions.”
Unfortunately, the Kings will have to hold in their repressed emotions a little while longer. Over 160 rallies, originally set for Saturday at 8 p.m. in 43 different countries, were cancelled out of fear for the men’s rights activists’ safety.
“I can no longer guarantee the safety or privacy of the men who want to attend on February 6, especially since most of the meet-ups can not be made private in time,” said Valizadeh in his cancellation post. “While I can’t stop men who want to continue meeting in private groups, there will be no official Return Of Kings meet-ups. The listing page has been scrubbed of all locations. I apologize to all the supporters who are let down by my decision.”
Atlanta chauvinists are out of luck because this includes the Piedmont Park gathering.
Valizadeh had planned on joining his woman-hating colleagues in Australia after the U.S. failed to support this asinine culture jammer. After he announced his travel plans, a petition on Change.org protesting his presence on the island received over 100,000 signatures.
“Australia already has a widespread problem with rape, abuse and violence against women and does not need any more encouragement to harm women from people like Roosh V and his followers,” wrote Blair Williams in her petition. “We need to send the message that rape is not ok, that supporting a misogynist like Roosh V is not ok and that violence against women is not ok!”
So, who exactly is Roosh V and where did his extreme ideals for society originate?
Valizadeh graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in microbiology.
The original name of the site, DC Bachelor, was changed to Roosh V out of fear his employers at an industrial microbiology lab would find his site and not understand his “macho content.”
His site offers a multitude of abhorrent content for bigots seeking all kinds of advice. Visitors can buy any of his “bang guides” – “strategy guides for getting laid at home and abroad.”
Bang Iceland: How to Sleep With Icelandic Women in Iceland offers an in-depth account of V’s possible rape of two Icelandic women.
“While walking to my place, I realized how drunk she was. In America, having sex with her would have been rape, since she legally couldn’t give her consent. It didn’t help matters that I was sober, but I can’t say I cared or even hesitated. I won’t rationalize my actions, but having sex is what I do.”
V’s almost-daily website posts exult titles like “10 Reasons Why Heterosexual Men Should Leave America,” “The 3 Immutable Laws of Getting the Highest Quality Women,” and the ever-popular, “What is Neomasculinity?”
“Neomasculinity combines traditional beliefs, masculinity, and animal biology into one ideological system. It aims to aid men living in Westernized nations that lack qualities such as classical virtue, masculinity in males, femininity in females, and objectivity, especially concerning beauty ideals and human behavior. It also serves as an antidote for males who are being programmed to accept Western degeneracy, mindless consumerism, and immoral state authority.”
His pamphlet continues with 20 subcategories including “Traditional Sex Roles,” the designation of “Male-Only Spaces,” and the most attractive ratios of “Feminine Beauty Ideals.”
United Kingdom Labour Party Member of Parliament (MP) Chi Onwurah has the truth on these rape reform advocates: overcompensation.
“These planned meetings may well have simply been a publicity stunt by an attention seeker so insecure about his masculinity that he goes to these lengths to augment the size of his, ahem, following,” said Onwurah to fellow MPs.
Neomasculinity… all the cool rapists are doing it.
