Here are some articles which perpetuate the stereotype that all involuntarily celibate men are entitled misogynists: https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/politics/a20078774/what-are-incels/ https://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/life-and-relationships/what-should-women-do-if-they-re-involuntarily-celiba...

Yeah, that'll work.


We would have to find ways to structure things to make the social aspect easier and less draining.

I think this exists in the general population too. It's the online dating scene that has extreme partner demands. When people meet IRL they have much lower demands even if they also date online with high demands. The same applies to an even greater extent when people like each IRL. This is one reas...

How did this short-lived one start? Maybe you need to do again what worked (at least partially) before. She actually told me she was interested first instead of me saying it first. We were both in the same support group and it wouldn't have happened otherwise. Life hasn't replicated this situation ...

And likewise, there are many of us men who are unable to find love who not in anyway hateful, misogynist, or violent. (I'm aware there are just as many women as well, but nobody goes around making generalizations about them being hateful and/or violent.) My point is not about how or why the term In...

I can show you lots of feminism who are horrible people too should we hate the word feminism and not allow people to use it? But plenty of moderate feminists exist also, and there exist well-known moderate feminist organizations and websites, such as the National Organization for Women . You might ...

The only forum I frequent is this one here, do you see any pro-rape and pro-slavery posts here?


Of course not, but this forum also does not label itself an "Incel" forum. My question was about forums specifically for "Incels," and which use that label.

SJW identifies the ideology as well as behaviour all in one neat package, How about "social justice fanatics," then? My issue is with the word "warrior," which is being used metaphorically and has a variety of different metaphorical meanings with either positive or negative conn...

Of course it's been irreparably tainted. I thought that was obvious. Apparently the O.P. and a few other people in this thread don't think so. It's a shame because it would otherwise be an accurate descriptive term. A decade ago I looked up celebracy on Wikipedia and found that the article only des...

This one. I know this is supposed to be the love and dating board but it's mostly the guys complaining about being incel board. But this forum does not CALL itself an "Incel" forum. The whole point of this discussion is whether the LABEL "Incel" has been irreparably tainted. So ...

I highly doubt that sly and others here are actually on those forums. They are normal-adjusted people and not crazy like the folks that post in those forums. Also, suggesting that they may have borders very scarily on false accusation and alienating the guys posting here. My question is whether the...

To magnetowasright, xDominiel, The_Face_of_Boo, rdos, KimD, sly279, Aspie19828, et al: Can you show us some examples of "Incel" forums where pro-rape, pro-slavery, and generally violent rhetoric are NOT tolerated, or at least are strongly discouraged by the vast majority of users if not ou...

Re: the video posted by hurtloam, documenting extreme anti-woman sentiments by some men in the "Incel" community: At around 2:43, we are shown something which says: If you don't sleep with a woman within 15 minutes of meeting her, you're ugly. That's how fast women f**k a guy they find sex...

Niantic of Pokémon Go fame voiced its support of Autism Speaks in a tweet the other day. https://twitter.com/nianticlabs/status/1054569879980924933?s=21 It would be very helpful to newcomers (like me) if someone could post a good, concise yet reasonably comprehensive, annotated, UP-TO-DATE summary ...
