Hmmm,

So metoo movement and social justice warriors/keyboard warriors is lessen it grip overseas...at least in the videogame department.

"Video of pick-up artist grabbing Japanese women on street triggers online protests"
Quote:
In the past few days, professional pick-up artist Julien Blanc became the source of tremendous ire after footage was shared online of a man identified by Internet users as him grabbing women on the streets of Tokyo, manhandling a convenience store clerk, and pushing girls’ heads down into his crotch while posing for the camera.

The footage of Blanc sees him standing in front of a group of men at what appears to be one of his training sessions, telling them that when in Tokyo, “if you are a white male, you can do whatever you want“.

The tips Blanc gives for picking up girls in Japan, along with netizens’ discovery of his activities through social media, have caused much outrage online, and a number of Twitter users are now making efforts to warn women in Japan that the notorious pick-up artist is due to arrive in town sometime in the next two weeks.
