Australia says NO to Julien Blanc's team teaching domestic violence.
The 'tactics' Julien and his team teach include 'choking' women and calling them 'deadbeat whores' in order to shock them into submitting to his dominance. Now Julien Blanc's associate, RSD instructor Jeff (Jeffy) Allen has been granted a visa and is back in Australia to teach men this disgusting, vile violence against women.
They call themselves "pick up artists", but are nothing more than promoters of sexism and violence against women.
Julien Blanc tried to preach these tactics at ticketed events around Australia in 2014. Fortunately you all stood up and said "hell no" – Australia very loudly said no to violence against women. Then Immigration Minister Scott Morrison revoked Blanc’s visa. This was great news!
But now Julien Blanc's bro Jeff Allen from "Pimp by RSD" is back – running events which promote and profit from violence. He’s touring Australia right now teaching young Aussie men to choke women and treat them like garbage to assert dominance over women and essentially psychologically abuse women until they submit to these men.
Even though RSD has been very secretive about who they were bringing over this time, this picture posted on Instagram after the first event in Sydney last week shows it is him.
And here’s Allen making fun of people with disabilities by impersonating a ‘retarded’ man to trick women into engaging with him.
There are more videos in this link to an article by Dr. Matthew Berryman which demonstrate the culture of objectification in the movement. – including co-founder Owen Cook basically admitting to rape.
Jeff Allen represents Real Social Dynamics. This quote is from a RSD forum:
“They dream about this. They wanna be tied up and fully succumb to your aggressive masculinity. They want you to push them against the wall, rip their clothes off, put her in a submissive position and call her bitch, slut, whore until their skull can’t take it anymore…”
“See as much as women wanna be raped, they also want to be made feel beautiful.”
This is abhorrent.
I've witnessed many women in my life be mistreated by men who claimed to care about them – many who are trapped in abuse by the exact tactics promoted by Julien Blanc, RSD co-founder Owen Cook and RSD instructor Jeff Allen. These tactics represent a very real danger to the community and serious, often life threatening danger to individuals. I have created this petition because it is inconceivably sickening that we would allow people to not only promote domestic violence and sexism, but also to profit from it.
If you think Jeff Allen needs to be deported like his 'colleague' Julien Blanc was, please sign & share this petition.

Australia says NO to Jeff Allen and his teaching of violence against women.
Please consider acting as Scott Morrison did in the role of Immigration Minister when Jeff Allen’s colleague Julien Blanc tried to tour the country teaching men domestic violence tactics in workshop events, and revoke Allen’s visa.
Australia has lately been discussing violence a lot as we try to work out how to reduce the number of domestic partnerships which are fraught with violence and abuse. A good step in tackling this would be to say very clearly that we do not hand out visas for people to come to Australia and promote, and profit from the promotion of, domestic violence and specifically violence against women.
These men have built a business advising young men that their best option for a romantic or sexual encounter with a woman is to belittle her, physically restrain her, mentally deride her, and abuse her until she submits. These tactics are promoted on their social media and in videos from their seminars, and now they are touring the country preaching to young Aussie men this same dangerous mantra.
If this Coalition Government is serious about promoting equality for women, denouncing violence against women, preventing the growth of a culture of domestic and public violence of all varieties, a good indication of this would be not to issue business visas to people whose business model is founded on workshops which teach and promote abuse which may very well border on criminal.
Australia, like many other nations, requires that visitors and people who are wishing to migrate are of good character as outlined in the Department of Immigration policies. In making a determination on whether a person is fit for entry into the country, the Department applies a ‘character test’ which ultimately decides whether or not a person is granted a visa to enter Australia.
The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship (the Minister) and a decision maker in the Department have the power to make a decision to grant or refuse a visa on character grounds on a case-by-case basis. It’s important to note, that the Minister or the Department have the authority to revoke a visa that has already been granted if it is later established that the person has failed the character test.
A person is deemed to have failed the character test if:
• they have a substantial criminal record
• they have an association with another individual, group or organisation whom the Minister reasonably believes has engaged in criminal conduct
• they are likely to engage in criminal activities in Australia
• they are likely to harass, stalk, or molest another person while in the country
• they are likely to incite discord within the community, or a segment of the community within Australia
• they represent a danger to the community, or a segment of that community by being likely to become involved in activities that are disruptive, violent or threatening.
Jeff Allen represents a profit-making group advocating tactics which include harassing and stalking women, they advocate a mentality to women that does not value consent, and they represent a very real danger to the community, they are also profiting from a business model which encourages violent and threatening behaviours, it is very likely that Jeff Allen would fail the character test just as Julian Blanc retroactively did when his visa was revoked.
We ask that you apply the character test to Jeff Allen and any associates from Real Social Dynamics, to determine grounds to revoke visa approval.
