You can't deny the Manosphere sprung up around him and Roosh, essentially. If you're detailing the history/formation, this is a lynchpin.

Let's be careful not to overstate the importance of Roissy. I see him as a relatively short-lived and limited contributor to the Manosphere who became obsolete--by choice, it seems--several years ago. While he arguably deserves mention, and made important statements during his two or three years of relevance, he isn't a face on the Mount Rushmore of the Manosphere. The Manosphere certainly didn't "spring up around him."

Furthermore, there are risks to citing him (apart from whatever restrictions Wikipedia places) given his hard turn to bizarre racial and political territory in the last several years (e.g., his preoccupation with something he terms "racial cuckoldry").

Roissy, while once an astute commentator, has hurt the Manosphere as much or more than he's aided it--arming the opposition with some of its only potentially valid criticisms of movement.
