Protesters gathered on the banks of the Yarra River in Melbourne Thursday night, according to Australian news site the Age.A river cruise boat had canceled a Blanc event earlier that day, and police were called to remove the men who came to hear Blanc speak.It had more than 41,000 signatures as of late Sunday night.

“All you have to say to kinda like take the pressure off is just yell ‘Pikachu’ or ‘Pokemon’ or ‘Tamagotchi’ or something,” Blanc said.

The video concludes with footage of Blanc grabbing actual women on the street and shoving their faces in his crotch.

She is posting information about upcoming Real Social Dynamics events on Twitter and calling on people to pressure the venues to cancel them.

“I don’t want them to have the space where they can teach men to harass other women,” she said.

They pay thousands to attend “boot camps” at which Blanc and others teach guys how to “game” their “targets” (PUA lingo for women) using tactics criticized as misogynistic and even violent.

You might recognize the language and ideology from the manifesto of Santa Barbara sorority shooter Eliot Rodgers, who frequented PUA message boards.

Feminist writer Clementine Ford takes a different view of Blanc’s tactics. It doesn’t encourage any kind of genuine connection between men and women.

It only encourages objectification,” she told the Age.

“It’s Offensive, It’s Inappropriate, It’s Emotionally Scarring, BUT IT’S DAMN EFFECTIVE,” Blanc says of his techniques on his Web site, Pimping My, where he posts videos with titles like “My Girlfriend Passed Away” — The Twisted Humor That Inevitably Knifes Through To Her Panties.” Blanc’s tutorials promise to help men “develop panty-dropping masculinity” and learn skills like how to “make girls beg to sleep with you” or “how to pick up an eastern European model in the day.” One of his more controversial tactics is called the “choke opener,” which involves approaching a woman by grabbing her around the neck.

On his Twitter account, @RSDJulien, he posted photos of himself grabbing women with the hashtag #Choking Girls Aroundthe World.

Success in getting Blanc kicked out of Australia fueled momentum for #takedown Julien Blanc.
