... 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

I can see why some are saying let him in and then arrest him for inciting violence etc but why should we waste thousands in a prosecution when we know what despicable shit he preaches as a method of controlling women.
We have borders, there is no good reason he should be allowed in.

I've signed. If you swapped the word "woman" for "black person" or "muslim", for example, then he would be quite rightly arrested for hate crimes.
Quite agree. I have signed too.
This rape culture, I'm sure it is linked to the way women are represented in popular culture. Namely music videos. And, sometimes, women themselves are fuelling it by participating.
I often have this argument with younger female family members. Their answer is always "but sex sells that's how it is." In the same vein as you I think lets say "racism sells" or "bigotry sells". Then it's clear how abhorrent it all it.

Holy shit, HE posted that image?! I know it well from DV literature. I thought it was just being used as an illustration of how bad his techniques are.
I did actually think he was just a vile, misogynist but naive twat, now he's starting to look terrifyingly cruel and twisted.
