100 Word Rant: anti-women rally this Saturday

Sexism – and rape culture – still exists, and this is proof for those who don’t think it does.

Daryush “Roosh V” Valizadeh plans to have an anti-women rally on Feb. 6 2016. Media has been running around in circles over the issue, some claiming it may even be a “make rape legal” event. It has yet to be confirmed if that is the reason, but it is for certain that this event is not allowed for women or homosexual/transsexual men, only for “masculine men to regularly bond and converse.”

Mr. Valizadeh said, “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. […] I thought about this problem and am sure I have the solution: make rape legal if done on private property.”

There is a list of meeting places held in 43 countries – including Singapore. There’s no confirmation that there will be an actual meeting, but please be wary that this event and this group does in fact exist.
