Mo is an incel from Iran that was interviewed by a feminist named Tilly Gambarotto for the The Independent. The article stated he was self-identifying and used incel forums.
At one point, he tells me, he started keeping a spreadsheet to keep track of everybody he spoke to, using the thousands of failed conversations as damning proof of his unworthiness of friendship. He documents everything, pulling out a weekly schedule when I ask him how long he spends online.
As a teenager he started to question the oppression of the Iranian regime, writing an article advocating the freedom to criticise religion that led to his arrest. Luckily, he was given a warning and sent away, but five of his friends died in suspicious circumstances while in custody after committing similar crime.
