I attended my local meeting. I had gone through the security procedures online and passed them and met the 4 other guys at the new secret location, a day earlier than planned. Turns out one of them was a protester who had his group of all male supporters follow us and try to film us with phones even though it was a dark, windy and rainy night, but we were hiding under our umbrellas. We ignored them, said nothing and went on our way and they stopped following after about 30 seconds. A police car was parked near the spot, and they had obviously called it in. We went to a different spot than where we had planned, had dinner and drinks and talked about for about 3 hours before going home. Fun bunch of guys and we are planning to meet again. They had never heard of HA.

Today, the organizer sent me a link to a local facebook page against our meeting, which described a totally inaccurate description of what happened. They had to lie to claim they had somehow thwarted us, even though they hadn't and nothing happened.

"a verbal confrontation broke out between the Return Of Kings affiliated men and the activists who were following them. They were then publicly shamed and outed. They then broke up and went their separate ways, as meeting was not going to be possible"

No verbal confrontation occurred, no one shamed or outed us, and we didn't break up and go our separate ways. Four men that had never met before went and had dinner together and talked about the manosphere. Simply horrifying!

I'm glad I went and hope to have made a few new friends.

Wow, even the Philippines has protesters? Or are you back in Canada? If the former, that's quite surprising. I highly suspected one way or another secret meetings would still take place but since I'm not a contributor on Roosh, I figured I had no way of knowing. Strange that an actual ROK contributor (the one who showed up Saturday) didn't know either.

Rock,
Kudos for having the guts to go to the meeting. I guess not all guys are as open and sociable as we are. Lol.

Was the snobby filipino guy handsome? Why would he be interested in PUA? Being upper class and living in the easiest country to pick up girls in -- where even losers can get girlfriends and sex -- he should have lots of easy access to good quality filipina women right? Also, being in a country where girls are sweet, feminine and easygoing, why would he join an anti-feminism movement since its not an issue here?

Will N Dowd,
Kudos for going to the meeting and risking yourself getting filmed. If a group of guys were following me with cameras at that meeting, i would have taken advantage of it and approached them to hand them HA pamphlets and preached my message to them, to get publicity for HA. Lol

Why was the police car there? You should have told the policeman that hecklers were following you and filming you with cameras from feminist groups. Lol

Btw how did you guys know the meeyings might still take place? Did roosh say that you could show up anyway at your own risk?

Also, did roosh say he would reschedule the meetings?

It was in Canada. Roosh had posted that he had cancelled the meetings world wide due to safety concerns, but people were of course welcome to meet on their own, which is what we did. We met a day early at another locale but one of them was a fake member and obvious male feminist, and he brought his lame supporters. They were holding up their phones with the camera lights on, but it was dark rainy and windy and we had umbrellas so they failed in their attempts. A police car was nearby and I'm sure they had called it. But yes, we should have been the ones reporting them for trying to harass us. We just ignored them and kept walking and they gave up like the pussies they are.

Guys like that need to really get a life. What are they exactly trying to accomplish? Stopping men from hanging out with each other? There is nothing wrong with what we are doing, and we are free to do it whenever and wherever we want. Funny how manosphere Men meeting is shamed, but if feminists wanted to hold world wide meeting they would be welcomed with open arms and provided police protection.

Will N. Dowd congratulations in going. These male feminist are just pussies who think if they agree with women's issues they'll get girls to like them. They'll only get attention from the wrong kind of women with green hair and multiple nose rings and tattoos who hate men.

I'm looking for a group of like minded men who know the difference between males and females and who want to travel and experience the best of what the world has to offer. :D

On a sadder note, Roosh has many more haters now than followers. I'm not of the believe that any attention is better than no attention. :evil:

Perhaps one day Doosh will get locked up, get his ass kicked, or otherwise put down like the little bitch he is. It would be funny anyway. The thing is that I don't have a dog in the fight between Doosh and the feminazis. Ideally, all the cockroaches would kill each other.

I stopped reading this forum a long time ago for advice. I began reading about a core of topics a few years back but I moved on. Most posters here seem to be mentally ill and jaded at the anti-science intersection. Basically an assortment of nuts from white supremacists to conspiracy theorists. My wife thought I was looking at an escort site from the early 90s when she first saw the site. It really looks outdated and ugly. I had to explain to her the ads for foreign brides and all the racism (she is Filipino and I'm a white man). All you read on the forum is conspiracy kookery, white nationalist fantasies (as opposed to honest inquiry into racial differences) and endless collapse porn. Each new member is lamer and more confused then the last. This site seems to be an echo-chamber for involuntary celibates. It would completely fall apart if there were pictures attached.

The real reason developing countries are attractive to a lot guys here is because their status is artificially elevated as a man from a wealthy country, and many of the women see them as a path to American citizenship. The language barrier also helps to remove intimacy from the relationship; masking the social awkwardness of the man, and reducing the feeling of guilt from the women over the fact that she's exploiting him for cash. I met my Filipino wife thought a social network and had a real connection.

Although I think there are a few manosphere followers that ARE actually serious about improving themselves, I think the majority of them are not. They’re often looking for a shortcut. I think a lot of manospherians have likely fell prey to diet or fitness scams at one point or another. The biggest irony regarding Daryush Valizadeh is that he teaches social skills but lacks even the basics. The man-o-sphere itself is a misnomer, a façade hidden behind an illusion. Everything is somebody else’s fault. I don’t quite get the obsession with feminism either. Sure, I don’t like the ideology itself very much, but just because there are a lot of fat, entitled women out there does not mean that you won’t be able to find a woman who isn’t able to behave well for at least one night. The average manospherian doesn’t seem to be aware that he wouldn’t get laid either even if feminism was banned over night. I think most manospherians are completely oblivious to the fact that THEY are the problem. I’m not surprised at all that women aren’t interested in them. They’re all losers from what I can see.

I'm almost starting to feel bad for Roosh, seriously. He sounds like a frustrated virgin and has been branded a rape advocate ALL over the world. He has been publicly humiliated by cancelling his rape meetings. He has become so obsessed with women that they have just become the center of his value system in ways that have nothing to do with getting laid even. I find that guys who don’t get laid (but really want to. Some guys don’t care) often develop an obsession with women that is so extreme everything in life is seen from the perspective of how women like men.

You are right, this forum needs improvement, better software, better design.
All you read on the forum is conspiracy kookery, white nationalist fantasies (as opposed to honest inquiry into racial differences) and endless collapse p**n.
Really?
How is this different from any daily life in US-society? The US-society claims it is a paradise, but it has plenty of racial related problems, and USA is the largest p**n provider in this world.
This forum is more the opposite of what you say. It tries to inform people that such attitude is wrong, USA is not a paradise and this forum is also promoting interracial international marriage.
The real reason developing countries are attractive to a lot guys here is because their status is artificially elevated as a man from a wealthy country, and many of the women see them as a path to American citizenship. The language barrier also helps to remove intimacy from the relationship
How is this different from USA again? US-women are looking for rich men too because of their status and to be artificially elevated, isn't it?

About foreign countries and foreign languages, not every foreign country is 'developing' - I am from Europe and living in Japan. About foreign languages, you can study about them, I have no language problems at all.
I don’t quite get the obsession with feminism either. Sure, I don’t like the ideology itself very much, but just because there are a lot of fat, entitled women out there does not mean that you won’t be able to find a woman who isn’t able to behave well for at least one night.
Feminism is a hateful ideology favoring some certain groups of women - not all women. It is about 'give as little as possible and take as much as you can' from men, companies, public funds.
It is an ideology where a certain group of women is claiming benefits and privileges without any justification, solely out of their female gender.
Such a movement is leading basically into a population of 2 groups, women who want it all - and men (all males, from young boys to old men, sick men etc.) who are considered as 2nd class citizens.

I give you some examples:
Check out the prison population, how many are men, how many are women, and check out their crimes and their sentences.
You will notice that women get away with much more lenient sentences than men.

Check out health care - how much research money is going for health problems related to women and how much for men.
Check out family court decisions, how much money goes from men to women, how much from women to men, not to talk about father's rights, which are totally ignored.

Very much which is presented to you from the Western media is nothing but a censored edition of your daily life as a man in Western countries, shamefully Christian religion also plays its part in USA and Europe, selling out its moral values to feminism.

If you need a good reference about how men are 2nd class citizens in this world, please download this article.

You seem to be a male feminist because you believe male and female are biologically the same. Sorry, where I come from in Indiana males are providers and females receivers. All the talk on here about UFOs, flat earth, Nazis, etc is not what we talk about around here. I don't know what state or city you have been to in America, maybe Hollywood movie set?

The legendary idiots running the facebook page against the ROK meeting in my area have now taken down that total BS post they made yesterday:

"a verbal confrontation broke out between the Return Of Kings affiliated men and the activists who were following them. They were then publicly shamed and outed. They then broke up and went their separate ways, as meeting was not going to be possible"

As I mentioned before, they took some photos and an alleged video of us, but since the video, if taken would prove that what they posted above was not true, I'll assume they decided to take it down and improve their already shaky credibility.

They then posted a series of stills from the supposed video, with blurry dark pictures of various guys. The pics were legit ones of the men, but that was only because I had been there and met them. Trying to identify them in daylight from the photos would have been almost impossible. To match the photos, they had posted the following absurd comment:

"We are doing this at the request of people who have been made to feel unsafe by the planned ROK meetings. We are NOT inviting or encouraging retaliation against these individuals. Because of our experiences with police making our communities less safe, we will not be collaborating with law enforcement. In order to protect the identities of those who infiltrated this meeting, the video as a whole will not be released. We know that this response is messy and flawed, as any response would be under the circumstances, including doing nothing.
Apparently ROK consists of four misguided men who had never met in person until last night. If they are reading this, we want them to know that they are not welcome to organize or meet up again, here or anywhere else. We affirm the reminders—especially from women, genderqueer and trans people—that ROK members are only one extreme example of pervasive misogyny, homophobia and transphobia. We also know that sexual assault happens most often in our own communities, among people we know, and that long-term solutions include working with men to unlearn violent behaviour. Long after these ROK meetings have been forgotten, we know that resistance to gender-based violence will continue, and we hope that the pushback against ROK meetups can be an opportunity for people to find support, make connections, and build communities of resistance"

What a load of absolute paranoid nonsense.

Who exactly are these people we made feel unsafe? I'm interested in finding out more about the people who feel unsafe by 4 men meeting to have dinner.
Thanks for not encouraging retaliation against us, but I want to know, what would people be retaliating against us for? We met and had dinner at a restaurant.
You were collaborating with law enforcement, that's why you had them with you on standby. But since nothing happened, you can't report anything.
If they reported us to law enforcement, what would they accuse us of doing exactly? What law did we break?
If law enforcement makes communities less safe, then why did the SJW's there have a police car with them?
They want to protect the identities of the infiltrators, but are happy to release the photos of the "guilty" men.
Yes, your response is messy and flawed, thanks for admitting it.
The alleged video will not be released because if it does exist, it would prove their story is BS, it has nothing to do with protecting your mangina's identities.
If anyone is misguided it is you and all your paranoid nonsense. You know nothing about the 4 "misguided" men that met.
We are not welcome to meet up in here or anywhere else. What a tragedy. How exactly will you be preventing us from meeting wherever and whenever we want in the future? Should we tell you when and where we are meeting again so you can organize another lame rally?

I think ROK should keep posting more often about regular meetups around the globe, but then not have them, just to waste protesters time and resources.

Shortly after they posted the pictures and it's matching garbage message, they started getting a series of nasty comments telling them they had no rights to post pics and they might get sued for doing so. A few hours later they had deleted the pictures and the post, which I luckily copied and pasted to save here. So 2 posts and several pictures about the event were both deleted soon after being posted.

Truly pathetic people with mental health issues. Get a life!

Interesting idea, makes a lot of sense - to create a schedule full with meetings here and there, and nobody shows up as these meetings are 'cancelled'. :lol:

This whole story is so pathetic. Why not just have a public "anti-feminist" meetup on meetup.com with no secret messages or other nonsense? I mean there is nothing illegal about meeting and talking. All the drama is so absurd.

Because roosh wrote an article before that advocated rape. Hence the feminists used that to vilify him as a pro rape advocate, to give them some "just cause" to fight for. Thats the spark behind the drama. If roosh hadnt attained that label these meetings might have received no attention.

Some speculate that roosh might have written that pro rape article to get widespread media attention as a publicity stunt. If so that was a very foolish and dangerous thing to do. And can only hurt him in the long run. However, roosh now claims that article was satire only. Does anyone have a link to it? Or did he take it down?

Roosh is lucky that his webhost allows his site to remain, since webhosts usually have a policy that the sites they host cannot advocate anything illegal.

Nevertheless, im sure rooshs site has gotten tons of hits from this public fiasco, and his ebook sales must be on the rise as well. Some of that traffic will trickle here to happier abroad though, since we are mentioned many times on their forum and linked from there as well. So far we have probably gotten a fair share of traffic from them over the years because of that.
