New article at The Independent: Nathan Larson, the self-described incel paedophile, is running for Congress. This is how he groomed vulnerable young men

As part of my series on incels, I've been trying to get a little more coverage of the ideology and its proponents in mainstream outlets. Ideally, I'm looking to counter the narratives which have come out which propose the "redistribution of sex" or make the argument that incels can be "cured" if only they were to be given sex robots or see a sex worker.

As part of that effort, here's a piece I've written for the Independent about the self-professed paedophile incel, or "pedocel", who is running for Congress in Virginia. It's about how people like him are able to gain access to vulnerable lonely young men and poison their minds with their extremist views.

You can see it here.

If you're interested in reading more, my previous pieces about incels are here:

Part one: Incelocalypse

Part two: the A-Z of incel

Part three: the history of incel

This is an addendum to a series of posts on the incel community. As they say on YouTube, don't forget to subscribe to receive new updates as they come out.

This website is pretty expensive to keep going, hence the adverts you might have noticed. If you haven't noticed them because you're using an AdBlocker, shame! If you have literally two seconds, give a few of them a click. It really helps me keep this thing up. Alternatively, you can donate directly to help me keep up with running costs. Any help would be gratefully received.
