The "pick-up artist" community, a sexist self-improvement cult centered around manipulating and bothering women into sex, needs no introduction. Like many of its stars, Adnan "Addy A-game" Ahman is little more than an incel who graduated to sexual harassment. He's off to jail for two years, and on to the sex offender's registry for ten. BBC Scotland reports:
Ahmed was convicted last month of threatening and abusive behaviour towards five women. The 38-year-old from Maryhill, Glasgow, has also been placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years. ... Five young women, aged between 16 and 21, gave evidence at his trial about how they had been intimidated by Ahmed in Glasgow city centre and in Uddingston, South Lanarkshire.
Another woman broke down in court as she described how Ahmed followed her through Glasgow city centre and grabbed her head as he tried to kiss her.
YouTube failed to remove Ahman's videos, many depicting him following and pestering women and girls in public, until the BBC broadcast the exposé about them that led to his charges. In one example, he boasts of exposing himself to a woman and asking her if she's ever seen circumcised dick; in others, he records sexual partners without consent and posts audio and video online.
"Not for the politically correct," as he used to say.
