Amazon selling book series "thinly veiled guide to getting away with RAPE"

Important Change.org Petition

Warning: This petition contains details about sexual assault.

When I first read about Roosh V (real name Daryush Valizadeh), an American citizen and professional “pick up artist,” I became physically sick. His views on rape, women, and “dating” are that repugnant. His books, known as the “Bang” series, are thinly veiled guides to getting away with rape — a crime which he has repeatedly said should be made legal.
And yet Amazon.com, the largest online bookseller, currently stocks all of his books. They’re making money from a man telling other men how to rape women. So is he.

In one of the books sold on Amazon, “Bang Iceland,” he openly confessed to raping a woman:
“While walking to my place, I realized how drunk she was. In America, having sex with her would have been rape, since she legally couldn’t give her consent. It didn’t help matters that I was sober, but I can’t say I cared or even hesitated. I won’t rationalize my actions, but having sex is what I do.”
No, committing rape is what he does.

Valizadeh claims protest against him only ‘makes him stronger’. So let’s hit him where it hurts — financially. Help petition Amazon to remove his works from their their stock; sign and share.
To those who’ll cry ‘censorship’ – back off. He’s entitled to write and think and say what he likes. He’s not, however, protected from the backlash against his output, or removal of platform. This isn’t about banning books, it’s about ensuring he, and Amazon, can’t profit from rape.

I’m not going to link his site here; it’s too awful. If you want to read up, I am warning you; it’s grim. Help us shut him down. Together we stopped a similar “pick up artist” named Julien Blanc from getting a visa to enter the UK — now let’s see if we can make Amazon hear us as well.

If you feel strongly about Amazon pulling his books and no longer selling, please visit Change.org and let your voice be heard.

  1. Thank you for posting this! I had already signed the petition and posted it on Facebook. I can’t believe Amazon would have the lack of sensitivity, or even common decency, to list this. I think the only way to really hurt Amazon would be through divestment. If thoughtful, caring people sold their Amazon shares, that would send a message. Unfortunately, Amazon is one of the “buy and hold” stocks that most mutual funds, as well as private investors, are unlikely to dump. What’s a few women’s lives, when there’s money to be made? I think this shitass should have a taste of his own medicine, in the form of a gang bang, in prison or out. Hopefully in, where he’d get plenty. I’d be tickled to stand on the sidelines and cheer!

    • Hi Laura
      What’s up? I thought you were on the road. I can’t imagine the ass who would write a series of books on this topic. I shop at Amazon and I’m rethinking that. This guy is a freak, even saying there were times he should have been put in jail. I don’t think these are made up stories, he is a stalker, rapist, women hater and no telling what else.
      Take care.

      • Hi! Yep, I’m on the road, but I do stay in civilized areas when absolutely necessary. My poor doggy Atina has kidney failure and is having a biopsy this Tuesday. I haven’t written much about this because there will be a lawsuit and I’m sure the….I don’t have enough bad words to call her, so fill in your own…Anyway, she KNEW Atina was sick when she sold her to me, then went into collusion with her trainer and her vet to cook up a story that I made her sick…even though I saw it the very night I took her home, and took her to the vet the very next day. So I’m putting huge amounts on my credit card which I have no idea how I’m going to pay back, and hope I can find a really good lawyer who will work on contingency, because I paid for Atina with my last nickel and there ain’t no more. And she will die from her kidney failure, in spite of everything.

        So now you have a good bit of my story. Then I have to see a neurosurgeon about the bad condition of my neck. But I’m hesitant to have bones cut in my neck, which is the only thing that will fix the spinal stenosis. I really, really don’t want to wake up a quadriplegic and not even be able to kill myself. Fer cryin’ out loud, I’ve tried to be a decent person. I’ve made mistakes. A lot of them. But this kind of nerve pain is impossible to ignore. Fuck, at least I’m in Colorado and have one less thing to worry about.

        Sorry to unload on you…

        How are you doing?

      • You have had a big ball of shit thrown at you. I knew something was wrong when I saw the photo, she was to then. They knew she was sick and they need to be accountable.
        A couple of things you can do which cost nothing or very little. See where her license is from and make complaint . Contact your Attorney General and file a complaint, those are taken serious. See if you can find other owner who purchased a dog there and find out what they experienced.
        I believe all ligament breeders have to have license, if she doesn’t, that a big issue. The other thing you can do is ask for a replacement dog and you will pay half, have your vet check dog out, if healthy pay the rest. It’s much less stress on you. After you get a healthy dog, then start your champagne so no one else has to go through what you have.

      • Good advice. She is not so much a breeder as an importer of these beautiful, talented, loyal dogs, who are largely bred in Eastern Europe. Mine is from Serbia. This bitch has already had 44 dogs and a horse confiscated because they were all sick, and she had the gall to sue the SPCA and the former employees who turned her in. She employees a lawyer who combs the internet taking down bad reviews from people who bought sick dogs from her, because they are “trying to hurt her business.” She told me this. Yes, when I prove at my own expense that I did not cause Atina’s illness, she would be obligated under her own contract to give me a replacement dog. But I don’t want another sick dog from her! Or any dog from her! I want the dogs she has to go to Malinois Rescue and be placed in loving homes. I want her shut down and shunned. She is even now operating under an assumed name because she’s been run out of two other towns. The vet must lose his license and be prosecuted for conspiracy to commit fraud, and a few other things. My psychologist tells me this is good for me because it gives me purpose. Well, fuck her too, I don’t need this kind of “purpose”! But I do want the best for Atina, I do want to get those other dogs out of that hell hole, and yes, I want my money back plus damages and legal fees. And I will go to the press. I will go to PETA to confiscate her animals. I will go to the ASPCA. Unfortunately, the AKC will probably not bar her from registering litters, but if I can get her existing dogs confiscated permanently, maybe I can make that happen. She registers under her present name, but that might change too. And of course she’s set up shop in a remote part of a state that doesn’t care much what anybody does as long as they pay their taxes and bribe their public officials. I could go on and on….But I won’t. Grrrr.

      • Work the state legal system, read the laws on this crime, work thru local and state first. PETA and ASPCA have their own agenda and saving a few dogs doesn’t pay their bills. I would take photos of the dog everyday to show her problems. Is there a good size no kill shelter in the area, You might talk to them and gather information on the seller. They may also know someone you can call.
        Good luck. Keep fighting.
