Julien Blanc, Pickup Artist Pedagogue, Barred From UK for Awful Behavior

By    |   Thursday, 20 Nov 2014 11:06 AM

Julien Blanc, a widely despised American pickup artist who charges thousands for his seminars, was barred Wednesday from entering the U.K. for his planned February tour.

According to the BBC, the country's Home Office has the right to deny entry to any non-citizen whose presence could be deemed "not conducive to the public good." The move has been widely praised, especially by 150,000 online petitioners who've signed onto a Change.org campaign asking the U.K. to follow Australia's lead in barring Blanc. 

"To allow this man into the U.K. legitimizes sexual assault and predation, and sends a message that women are playthings or objects without agency," part of the petition reads.

Blanc's approach to women has been described as willfully abusive, and at least one woman who's had contact with him said he practices and teaches manipulation and coercion to his "students," who watch his online videos, read his blog, and pay to attend his in-person classes.

In one video of him teaching a class, he encourages men who have trouble interacting with women to travel to Japan.

"At least in Tokyo, if you're a white male, you can do what you want. I'm romping through the street just grabbing girls. It's awesome," he says, indicating he pulls their heads toward his crotch to assert his masculine dominance. Sometimes this practice is promoted on Twitter, where pictures of Blanc show him with his hands on women's necks, accompanied by the hashtag #ChokingGirlsAroundTheWorld.

Blanc also appears to be an employee or contractor of a larger "dating advice" company called Real Social Dynamic, which also promotes unsavory and dangerous behaviors.

"Make Girls BEG To Sleep With You After SHORT-CIRCUITING Their Emotional And Logical Mind," advertises one of the company's websites, which also promises desperate men the chance to develop "panty-dropping masculinity with this rock-solid structure to self-generate the powerful emotions girls crave."

After the world took notice of his abhorrent behavior, Blanc went on CNN to explain his side of the story, and issue a tacit apology.

"I feel horrible," the 25-year-old said. "I'm not going to feel happy to feel like the most hated man in the world."

After saying he was "extremely sorry," he said the pictures of him choking women were a joke "taken out of context."
