Update: Despite the slacktivist’s efforts Roosh Valizadeh has arrived in Canada without any problems at the border.
After a quick scan of his work, I get the feeling that Roosh Valizadeh is a bit of a douchebag. Roosh is a pickup artist guru with a twist- he not only promises to teach lonely men how to pickup women in their hometown, he also gives advice how to score in cities and countries around the world.
Roosh’s blog entry 5 Things You Should Know About Russia reads like Pando.com contributor Mark Ames’ now defunct Moscow newspaper The Exile– tired old advice on how to get into Moscow clubs and into the трусики of Russian women. What he doesn’t explain in his comparison of Moscow and Ukrainian women is why the latter were easier for him to exploit. Many of their lives are so miserable they’re desperate enough to escape that they’ll lower their standards to the likes of Roosh Valizadeh.
The guru’s entry on why Toronto is The Worst City In North America For Men paints a different picture- the vast majority of women here live safe and comfortable lives and aren’t desperate enough to hook-up with Roosh. Many Canadian women are understandably angry with Roosh, so it’s no surprise his upcoming visit would be met some resistance- a coalition of feminists, anarchists, and a panda bear have already declared war.
