Rape is now deemed “acceptable” in the eyes of some; wow, has society fallen.
Roosh Valizadeh (Roosh V), a self-described “pick-up artist,” believes that society needs to follow a more traditional route.
Valizadeh is dubbing his ideologies as “neomasculinity.”
Neomasculinity combines traditional gender beliefs, masculinity, and animal biology into one ideological system. Roosh also said that women are to be care takers.
Valizadeh also teaches guys how to be “sexually attractive,” which includes “being confident and masculine, traits that women say they don’t love, but respond favorably to anyway,” according rooshv.com.
The idea of him walking around, encouraging these barbaric views for men makes Valizadeh a couple steps close to being the devil himself.
“If a woman got raped, that is a sad thing. It’s a bad thing. But whose fault is it? Is it the woman’s fault? No, I’m not saying that,” said Valizadeh to reporters during a secret press conference, according to Vox Media.
Valizadeh continued “But a woman can do things to reduce the likelihood that she will get hurt. If I get a BMW car right now and I leave the key inside and park it in a bad area and it gets robbed, whose fault is that? Is it the thief’s fault, or is it my fault for being a moron?”
Rape should in no way be tolerated. In fact, forcing someone to have sex is disgusting and horrendous—yet people are supporting him.
“Rape is amongst the most gruesome crime any human being can commit,” stated student Nick Beck.
It is disturbing that there are people who partake in this, knowing the repercussions it can cause to people who have been raped.
“Rape is a horrible crime. And it effects the victims for the rest of their lives. Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder are common conditions among rape victims,” according to Kevin Caruso, founder of suicide.org.
All of these symptoms typically affect murderers, war survivors, or those who are dealing with death. Survivors of rape also suffer from these symptoms.
“Forty percent of women surveyed with severe mental illness had suffered rape or attempted rape in adulthood, of whom 53 percent had attempted suicide as a result,” according to a study published in Psychological Medicine.
It is also mind-blowing since there are instances were survivors of rape will stay quiet about what happened in their life time. Furthermore, there are still a high number of individuals assaulted daily.
One out of every six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime, according to rainn.org
“Rape affects hundreds of thousands of women each year in which return a lot go unheard,” stated Beck.
It saddens me to see people like Valizadeh rape others just because of an unhealthy desire to sexually dominate another.
“In bragging about his sexual exploits, Valizadeh has admitted to multiple instances of having sex with women who were reluctant to, or could not, consent (he has since claimed these quotes were taken out of context and denied any allegations of rape),” according to Lindy West for The Guardian.
Valizadeh has no concern as to what he has done to previous females or potentially will do to future females.
“Realistically, I am disappointed at the flood of negative attention that will now put me in the “rape proponent” box for the rest of my life,” said Valizadeh, according to West.
It humors me a little that he is complaining about dealing with “negative publicity.”
Valizadeh believes that men should run this earth and dictate how people should react towards horrific events, like someone being raped.
I am confused and disgusted with how he lives his everyday life, teaching men who may have no knowledge or understanding about how to court women. Ultimately leading them to believe that forcing a women to have sex with them is the correct way to entice them.
Valizadeh, if this is your idea of meeting a woman, I feel bad for you, son. You got 99 problems and all of them include rape.
