About The Incels
Incels, a portmanteau of "involuntary celibates", are members of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one, a state they describe as inceldom. Self-identified incels are largely white and are almost exclusively male heterosexuals. Wikipedia
In our quest to learn more about different cultures, sub cultures, beliefs and individuals with specific passions - this week we focus on the Incel.
Lyman Stone wrote an absolutely fascinating piece Male Sexlessness is Rising But Not for the Reasons Incels Claim.
Lyman walks us through what an Incel is, the background behind this Incel movement and why the data does necessarily match up to the reality of their situation.
Is involuntary celibacy on the rise or has the internet just been able to connect these individuals?
