Do not give "Dapper Laughs" a platform in Glasgow

The 'comedian' Daniel O'Reilly aka Dapper Laughs told a woman in the audience of his show that she was "gagging for a rape". He subsequently had publicly announced the retirement of his sexist alter ego after his ITV show was cancelled in the wake of his tired jokes which dehumanise women and trivialise rape.
However, it has recently been announced that Dapper Laughs has been revived, and will appear as a special guest at Campus Glasgow on Thursday April 2nd 2015. The night of misogynist "humour" has been billed as 'student friendly' however, we counter that this kind of event only promotes and perpetuates the lad culture which leaves women feeling unsafe. It is clear by Campus choosing to book Dapper Laughs that they prioritise profit over the safety and wellbeing of women.
We, the undersigned, call upon Campus Glasgow to do the right thing and put the women of Glasgow first. Cancel the appearance by Dapper Laughs, and make a substantial donation to Glasgow Rape Crisis Centre.
