... What they are doing and sign the petition to stop julien blanc entering the country.
He runs seminars telling men how to pick up women, his tips include choking them. In japan he said that white men can do as they please and that men should grab a woman's face and thrust his crotch at it. I am all for free speech to a point but this man is encouraging domestic violence and generally spreading misogyny.
He recently posted this domestic abuse table/ diagram with #makeherstay

forgot the link blush

There seems to be two, I did both.

first one

bigdreadiedad Sat 15-Nov-14 19:25:47

YANBU.
Inciting violence is a criminal offense. we should let him in, then arrest him.

NeedABumChangeNotANameChange Sat 15-Nov-14 19:25:56

second one

I signed and shared this the other day on FB. Terrifying and depressing really.

Tobyjugg Sat 15-Nov-14 19:26:41

also daily fail link if you want to read a bit. I think the guardian had a better article but it's not loading for me right now to get the address.

I find it so horrific, men pay £2000 to go to his shows knowing his methods. I don't understand how any man would feel happy using them.

Just seen the address in the corner of that diagram. He's basically taken this wheel from a DV support group/charity and turned it around and used it against women. I'm guessing this was a list of features of DV and now he's promoting it as an aid to get laid.
Despicable human being.

He just left Australia after a few online petitions called on the venues he was at to cancel his bookings, then he was deported. I'm surprised the UK allowed him in sad

extremepie Sat 15-Nov-14 19:39:21

Already signed it smile

NeedABumChangeNotANameChange Sat 15-Nov-14 19:43:53

Yes fairgame it's supposed to help women recognise when they are being abused not teach men how to abuse!
And he is not yet in the countrycassandra the petition is to stop him.

MrsKranky Sat 15-Nov-14 19:44:32

Signed both & shared on social media.

Chipandspuds Sat 15-Nov-14 19:44:51

Signed it, thank you for reminding me!

Yes signed it yesterday.
Here is today's guardian link
www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/14/home-office-minister-julien-blanc-visa
This man is a fucking sociopathic cunt. Why are men paying for these lessons in sexual assault? Vile.
In one YT video he says 'there's no such thing as a rejection, just a missed opportunities' and boasts how if a woman says No or tells him to Fuck Off he'll just carry on trying.

ChippingInAutumnLover Sat 15-Nov-14 19:56:00

I have previously signed both of those, even though I don't like online petitions (the collection of data bothers me). But I've done it in the hope more good than bad comes of it.

It shouldn't even need to be done sad

emmelinelucas Sat 15-Nov-14 19:56:28

Done

GoofyIsACow Sat 15-Nov-14 19:56:42

Is it real, does he really believe that or is he some kind of sick 'comedian' confused

DuchessofNorks Sat 15-Nov-14 19:56:58

Already done. Misogynistic, racist and probably a rapist - already dangerous on his own, but teaching hoards of men (many of which will be young and impressionable) that this behaviour is OK and to take no notice of any woman that protests??

MerryInthechelseahotel Sat 15-Nov-14 19:58:14

Signed. What a despicable man!

Aduaz Sat 15-Nov-14 20:00:08

I actually thought this was some kind of very sick spoof at first because I'm speechless that anyone could be saying those kinds of things in the 21st century.

DuchessofNorks Sat 15-Nov-14 20:00:34

Goofy

I hadn't considered this... I am hoping now that this is some sort of set up to monitor reactions, like a huge, twisted experiment of some kind.

FernArable Sat 15-Nov-14 20:01:10

My first thought was let him in and take him to a rough bar on a Saturday, see how long it takes for him to get thumped. However this kind of spineless weasel has a natural talent for being able to pick out the more vulnerable women among us. Disgusting.

Signed.
