/r/incels: the involuntary celibate community on reddit
The unfortunate child of governmentgetsgfs, /r/incels (http://reddit.com/r/incels), is a subreddit about men who are involuntarily celibate, or incel, which means that they can not get anyone to sleep with them. they mostly believe that they can't get anyone to sleep with them because they are ugly, short, and/or autistic, and not because they're absolutely batshit insane. a lot of them absolutely refuse to believe that there's any hope for them despite their age (late teens/early 20s), and are convienced that the problem 100% lay with women, not them. the batshit insane doesn't apply to all of the users there, but it applies to a good majority.
some rules of /r/incels include:
you can't suggest that they go to therapy, because they all absolutely refuse to accept that therapy might be an option
you can't suggest that they go to an escort, because it's about INTIMACY AND LOVE, not sex, even though some of them suggest it for other incels (??)
you can't suggest self improvement, because that's just a TRAP
you can't suggest that they lower their standards, because allegedly their standards are already the lowest
who are the notable users? let's go down the list.
Formerly the user known as /u/sadpatheticloser2, and possibly one of the dumbest users there. On his old account, he would make numerous posts demanding people tell him that he is ugly, when in fact he is just an average indian dude. Now, becausehe was posting his picture (multiple times) while doing this, someone threatened to dox him and he deleted his account and hte imgur file and all that. He then made his new account, and the first post was "How do I avoid being doxxed???" He is constantly posting things that say people are 100% disgusted with him when he goes outside, and that they refuse to look at him and cower in fear because he's just that ugly, but whenever anyne asks him about it (basically if it's true), he won't answer and just keeps crying about how ugly he is. He makes a bulk of the rape fantasy, women should be enslaved, WHY DON'T WOMEN LIKE ME I'M SO UGLY posts, about 10 a night, in the span of an hour. He's convinced that indian men are the ugliest of the ugliest and that's another reason women don't like him
age: late teens/early 20s
Jewish teenager, who is from the midwest and in the army. Used to have leukemia as a kid, and was once homeless at one point, also has a twin sister. He's in the army band, and is currently stationed in Iraq. He absolutely refuses to admit he is wrong in any situation even when people provide citations and everything to prove that he is wrong. He believes that the reason black people get into school is because of affarmative action, refuses to believe that california doesn't have affirmative action (once said that students at UC Berkley got in because of it, and not cause of their work lmao) and that white women benefit from it the most. Once he made a post about how even in fiction women are evil because there's no "male version of a succubus", when everyone poined out that he was wrong and that that's what an Incubus is (and not a shitty band), he refused to believe it and went on to say that "WELL IT'S NOT JUST AS WELL KNOWN AS A SUCCUBUS" and then went on about how "NORMIES TOTALLY BULLY INCELS FOR THEIR OWN AMUSEMENT", because he couldn't admit he was wrong.
Some autistic (allegedly) candian somalian teenager, located in toronto. also makes a lof of women should be enslaved posts, asks why women don't like being raped, and then goes "i'm autistic i don't know any better!! women don't like me because i'm autistic!!" constantly making rage posts and sperging out at people in he subreddit, quitting and then coming back and talking about his self harm. once came up with the idea to quit his job and planned on becoming a drug dealer to get women addicted to heroin, and have them pay for the drugs by sleeping with him. he said that this would totally work because he had enough money saved up to just pay the drug dealer for all the drugs he was giving away for free for pussy. eventually decided that he would just buy an escort. then said he's too autistic to do it because he freaks out when people touch him, so he's back to square one.
A british university student who is in his first year, and has a complete and total superiority complex. He is convienced that anyone in the US who makes less than 400k a year is subhuman, that law students are lower than him (you know, law students), and women are in fact intimidated by him because he's just too alpha, and not because he's actually just a dick with a superirity complex. keep saying that getting a gf is a divine right, and that god will provide him one and that he doesn't actually need to stop being a dick to people.
the most bitter and angry user on /r/incels, which is saying a lot because so many people there are bitter and angry. despite being only in his mid 20s, he is absolutely miserable and believes that there is no hope for anyone, that hope is just some "normie" invention, and that women are the worst and dumbest of them all. he's been called out numerous times for just being nasty to users, incels and "normies" a like and responds aggressively to anyone and everyone when they tell him to stop doing it. he's completely nasty but also believes that women totaly can't tell tha he gives off a vibe or something like that irl.
age: early-mid 20s
Deleted his account recently because of "normies" in the sub, but another early college student who complains about Normies and sluts, and refuses to put absolutely any effort in to anything that he does or happens in his life. For instance, the people on his floor would party every weekend, and it would bother him. He wouldn't complain to his RA or anyhing, despite people makign that suggestion, because that's how you deal with the problem. He also made posts about women being enslaved, women being lesser beings, etc but absolutely refused to approach a girl or annything like that, and also had a bit of a superiorirty complex. He admited that his superiority complex was mostly just his way to cope with the fact that he was boring, and had no friends.
THis one is a doozy. He is most notable for saying he was going to kill himself, and then trying to do so. His mom found him, took him to the hospital, and he did his mandatory stay at a Psych ward. He styed there for about a week or so, and when he cam out he was seemingly doing better. However, he went downhill very very quickly. He has had sex at least twice in his life, now and has made matches on tinder but continues to post on /r/incels about how there's no hope for him, he's so ugly and stuff. It does not actually make any of the users on /r/icnels happy, because he's had sex, and he has potential, but he keeps complaining and insisting that he is totally an incel when he isn't (by their standers).
Age: early-mid 20s
