Misogynist Meet-Ups Burnt by Feminist Fire
Misogynist Meet-Ups Burnt by Feminist Fire

On Saturday over a hundred meetings of misogynists for "legalised rape" were planned by puke-up artist Roosh V. The push-back was fierce, immediate and completely unsurprising given that virtually no one agrees with his mad manifesto. What was widely acknowledged was the importance of repudiating his vile views (as beautifully articulated in this article). So protests were planned at the locations that had been advertised as the muster points for the meetings.

As momentum for the protests grew, Roosh announced that he was cancelling the events, saying he couldn’t guarantee the safety of those attending, spawning a new verse in a popular Alanis Morissette song:

When you organise a pro-rape meet,

and feminists say you’re gonna get beat;

Well isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?

So when Saturday rolled around and Roosh’s fanboys hid; on the streets the protests against Roosh and against rape were loud and proud. From Wellington in New Zealand to Glasgow in Scotland, Vancouver Canada to Munich Germany.

Here are a small selection of images:

There was also an incredible ongoing exchange between Jermaine Clement, of Flight of the Concords fame, and Roosh V and his acolytes which culminated in this epic tweet:
