Pro-Rape Meet-Up Canceled After Women’s Boxing Club Threatens to Show Up



Professional douchebag Roosh V. has made a name for himself advocating offensive misogynistic positions on his terrible website Return of Kings, and he's collected a handful of devoted followers in the process. But after scheduling an International Meetup Day for his "tribesmen" this weekend, he appears to have met his match: female boxers.

When they heard that Roosh and his followers were planning to meet up in Toronto, the women of the Toronto Newsgirls boxing club decided they'd attend the meet-up, too. That way when Roosh did what he threatened to do — take photos of any female protesters who showed up to dissect and criticize online later — he'd actually be snapping photos of badass bitches in boxing gloves.

"The photos of us will show women that being powerful is an option," founder Savoy Howe told Metro News. "And I think that’s what needs to happen against this d*****bag."

After word of the Newsgirls' plans spread, Roosh decided to cancel the meet-ups, writing that he can "no longer guarantee the safety or privacy of the men who want to attend."

Imagine feeling unsafe in a public space, or afraid to have your privacy violated. As a woman, I have no idea what that must be like.
