A Rape Advocate Is Targeting Canadian Women In an Online Harassment Campaign

Vanessa* woke up on Wednesday morning to texts from family and friends fearing for her safety.

They were worried because Vanessa’s name and personal Facebook page were posted by Roosh V, the pseudonym of legal rape advocate and so-called ”pickup artist” Daryush Valizadeh, who is currently on a speaking tour, on his personal forum.

Roosh singled Vanessa out as an “extremist organizer” in Toronto and asked his followers to collect “intel” on her and women participating in a demonstration against rape culture on Saturday, the same day as Roosh’s planned speaking date in the city. Roosh also encouraged his followers to “seduce” and then “fuck” Vanessa and any other Toronto women that they target online. The campaign is dubbed “Operation Fornication.”

“He’s kind of telling people to go out and try to rape me, but without really saying it,” Vanessa told me in a phone interview.

There’s thousands of people just like Roosh V. There’s nothing special about him except for the fact that he has a platform to spread his ideas.

2. beware of the site

ROK may have people like John Michael greer on it, but it advocates some of the nastier ideas seen, including "femine conversion therapy" which treats women like literal animals.
