The “Involuntarily Celibate” Redditor who calls himself Insale thinks that all he and his fellow incels need is for the media to pay a little attention to the lack of a party in their collective pants. Once the women of the world see their sad plight, Insale thinks, they will presumably line up for the opportunity to cure incels of their perpetual celibacy.
If not, well, maybe Insale will go on a hunger strike until the government steps in to issue him a girlfriend.
Insale’s colleagues on the Incels subreddit have not exactly been impressed by his plan.
“You’ll just be a male anorexic,” declared one commenter. “Maybe they can send you to a treatment facility and you can get rejected by the anorexic Stacies.”
“They would just laugh at you,” added another.
On the exceedingly unlikely chance that Insale actually goes through with his plan and women are indeed inspired to sign up for his offer of love and intimacy, I would strongly suggest they take a look at his comment history first. Even a cursory examination suggests that Insale’s ongoing celibacy is not the result of a lack of media exposure. It might have a bit more to do with the fact that he likes to openly fantasize about bashing women’s heads in.
Here he is offering his opinion on a YouTube video in which a woman discusses her depression.
He had a similar response to a YouTube video of a different woman discussing her social anxiety.
Then again, he thinks all women with mental illness are faking it.
He’s also a strong believer in “discipline” for women.
He’s also not a big fan of “femoids,” by which I think he means “feminists.”
Naturally, he manages to see himself as the real victim.
Indeed, he thinks the government should step in on his behalf, hunger strike or no, by forcing women to have sex with him and other incels.
Nonetheless, he insists — at least when he is posting outside of the incel subreddit — that he is actually quite the gentleman.
Insale, like most of his fellow incels, vehemently rejects the idea of seeking professional help for his problems, dismissing therapy as a “scam” and defending his vile comments online as a form of therapeutic “venting.” In fact, even by his own admission, his exposure to the incel community online is making him angrier, more hateful, and less hopeful about the possibility of improving his life.
Indeed, several days ago he declared that the subreddit had “ruined” him.
The incel ideology pretty much poisons everything it touches. Media attention isn’t going to solve your problems, guys; the only way you can move forward is to free yourself of the incel community and its noxious, hateful, and self-destructive ideas.
FYI: Despite the references above to r/incels being banned by Reddit, it hasn’t been. Periodically the mods of the subreddit set it to “private.”
