    It seems almost like people love to shit on them, and the term is fun to use to shit on people. I mean, plenty of the people I'm sure are shitty people, but if the idea is that there is a bunch of guys who are socially awkward and resentful about how they can't find a relationship, then the fad of piling on them is like trying to kick them while their down. A taunt.

    It will continue as long as people are rewarded for being victims and perpetually offended. If we could just physically and mentally beat up the weak they'd get it together...

    All I know is that it triggers incels when you call them incels, and they work hard to not have the title slapped on them. So I love using it.

    Fad. There have always been men who miss out in the sexual selection. Most women will be getting with a relatively smaller pool of men.

    Consequently the rate of STD’s is higher for females than males. “Incels” should take comfort in the fact they are immune to them.

    Incels exist but the hysteria over them is manufactured.

    In our modern society where you are not allowed to hate any of the traditional groups people have hated throughout history: Jews, minorities, homosexuals, women, etc, we needed a new group that it was socially acceptable to hate because human nature demands one. The incel is that socially acceptable whipping boy.

    As a society we haven't seemed to be able to find a way to end hate, so we've picked a group that 99% of people were comfortable with hating. Incels fit the bill nicely.

    These people have unattractive personalities and traits that they don't want to change, instead they'll blame liberal feminists for brainwashing all the good women. Then they have the nerve to claim their celibacy is "involuntary", please. Talk about creating your own misery and then wallowing in it.

    Except that incels are objectively terrible, unlikeable and they 100% choose to be one. Not like the categories you've listed.

    Just like people who lean even slightly to the left or sometimes just plain don't agree with far-right thinking get called libtards or cucks. Everyone's eager to put you in some sort of pigeon hole that might offend you.

    Had this conversation with a friend who is on the path of becoming an incel and sending me red pill and incel videos. I told him to find a passion other than his work and it would be way easier to meet girls. In the end, it boils down to

    There's been incels since the beginning of time. Now they just spend all their days jacking it to internet porn and posting left-wing opinions on MMA forums.

    Just like people who lean slightly to the right or sometimes don't agree with far left thinking get called fascists or bigots. ;)

    Incel as a word is definitely new but the phenomena isn't. Resentment over not being considered desirable, self seclusion and mental issues are human characteristics but involuntary celibacy happens all over the animal kingdom. Elephant seals come to mind as alpha males have harems while the weak males have no chance to mate.

    I used to make the joke "There's nothing involuntary about my celibacy" and I feel like the world would be a better place if the "incels" would all remember that credo. I sat around for quite a few years NOT getting all butt-hurt and sad about the fact that I enjoyed being along, working, doing art, and playing games rather than dating. Then when I met a person I really liked, and who shared the same interests and humor as I did.... it was pretty damn great. I didn't settle, but I also didn't blame anyone but myself that I wasn't meeting people. And if I hadn't met anyone, I'd be comfortable in my solitude rather than seeeeeeeathing anger from an imaginary illuminati terror-scape some people think exists.

    Have y'all ever looked at a incel message board? It makes WR-Sherdogger look 30% more normal (I'd wager 15% of WRers are legit "incels").

    I'm not so sure, there are some people that got a really shitty deal in life. It doesn't apply to most incels but it's true. There was that guy who founded 8chan, one of the incel hotbeds, look at him

    That guy is not getting laid except out of pity or money
    Apparently he moved to the Philippines(@ShinkanPo) and is now married

    The similar term in portuguese is corno, it's a very widespread insult since ancient times because it's easily one of the worst things that can happen to a male. I think it's a much superior insult than gay or the f-word that is so common in english

    I've always been confused by the ire to the cuck thing. I do get that, say, you are blindsided by your partner stepping out on you and you're shamed by it. Okay, but that's not really cucking is it? That's just being cheated on. Cucking specifically that you either don't mind, or actually derive pleasure from your partner enjoying other partners... right?

    To me that's just another part of that spectrum of sexuality. I can't connect with it any more than I can connect with gay, bisexual, pansexual, etc... etc... but I can see why if you like it and it makes you happy that you'd do it.

    The whole "cuck insult" is that you're shaming the person for liking it, right? You're implying there's something wrong with liking that. And to me, that's why it doesn't really work as an insult. It's like laughing at someone for liking John Tesh. I personally don't get it, but if someone grooves to John Tesh.... cool.

    Right, the term is new but the condition is surely as old as time. If you haven't seen it in a while, go watch the movie Taxi Driver again. Travis Bickle's delusional, hateful rantings often sound like a fairly typical War Room post on the subject of women, minorities, major cities, and general societal collapse. Sometimes I wonder, do some people watch a movie like that and see a hero instead of a monster?
