Self-described “pick-up artist” Roosh V. is hosting a seminar in Toronto today, despite nearly 50,000 signatures on a petition to the CBSA to have him barred from entering Canada. Roosh has also received a condemnation from Toronto’s mayor, John Tory, urging venues to cancel Roosh’s appearance. Roosh has been accused of sexism, misogyny, and even support for rape, despite his assertions that a controversial blog post was satire aimed at encouraging women to protect themselves against sexual assault.
Should Roosh be banned from speaking? Should anyone?
