- The hashtag gained a fair bit of momentum and a handful of people on it started calling out Amazon for selling Roosh's books, which are basically rape manuals. He talks about pushing women when they say no and talks about sleeping with women who are too drunk to give consent.
- I wrote a bit more about Roosh V and his relationship to GamerGate over on What Is GamerGate Currently Ruining.
