    Feminists have been leaving one star reviews on a book which they claim promotes rape, in a bid to bump it down Amazon’s rankings.

    ‘Bang: The Most Infamous Pickup Book In The World’ by controversial pick up artist Roosh V is a self-described “textbook for picking up girls and getting laid” aimed at heterosexual men. Critics say it condones rape and promotes gender based violence.

    In one passage, the author appears to confess committing an act against a woman which would meet the UK legal definition of rape. Roosh writes: “While walking back to my place, I realised 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 matter that I was sober, but I can’t say that I cared or even hesitated. I won’t rationalise my actions, but having sex is what I do.”

    Reviewers are taking to the book’s Amazon page to leave scathing reviews of the book and push it down the book outlet’s rankings. One reviewer leaves a one star review with the message: “The way in which Roosh portrays women is unpleasant to read… I find this book offensive, meaningless and demeaning to women.”

    Another writes: “This needs to be removed from Amazon. He is profiting from crimes and disgusting to make a how-to guide for violent assaults. Shame.”

    A further one star review states: “Honestly, this guy is a disgusting human being. Him, as well as the people giving 5 stars to this piece of junk, should get mental help. If you can’t see the problem, you’re the problem. If his whole account is not taken down soon, Amazon will be helping out an [sic] homophobic, misogynist, disgusting rapist, and therefore, criminal. He’s a danger, and we can’t have his opinion out in the wild for men to get ideas.”

    However, a number of other users have responded by leaving 5-star reviews in a bid to support the author. One 5-star reviewer writes: “I got this book as I am genuinely trying to find an amazing, loving, wonderful lady whom I want to get married to, have adventures, kids, grow old and reminisce etc. If the chapter on ‘sex’ had in any way, shape or form condoned forcing yourself upon a lady, I would have torn this book up. This book does not condone nor encourage rape. If anything it tells you, if you really are that silly, the signs to observe so that you don’t end up raping.”

    Roosh V has consistently denied that he is admitting to or advocating rape, previously arguing that he is merely campaigning for: “the return of the masculine man in a world where masculinity is being increasingly punished.”

    He's telling you to buy through the link on Dawg's so he gets a few pennies on the rape book.

    I think 2 star reviews are more appropriate since it's not a rape-rape book.

    Feminists are usually so ugly that no one would want to fuck them in the first place.

    They're not rapists. They're just douchebags.
