anti-Semitism incels misogynoir misogyny racism

Incels, they’re just like you and me! (If you’re a weirdo bigot who wants women to suffer.)

The incels are putting out a welcome mat

When you visit the Incels.is forum for the first time, this is what you see draped over the entrance — a surprisingly friendly invitation to involuntary celibates to join in the discussions there.

Trouble is, this is what the “people just like you” are currently talking about.

How much they hate women:

How much they want to cause women to suffer — both individual women and women as a whole:

How much they hate fat people:

But don’t worry! This guy is an equal opportunity street harasser:

We can’t forget the raging antisemites:

Basically the Incels.is crowd hates everyone of every race. But especially black women.

The incels want us to know how much they hate the very thought of women having sex (with anyone but them).

Then of course there are the dudes fantasizing about murder:

Some have bigger ambitions:

(Yes, they hate most men too.)

Sometimes they rise above the mire and speak of higher things:

And I have to say I don’t even want to know what this guy is on about.

Does he love Nickelback? Does he hate Nickelback? I don’t even want to know.

But there is one thing I know for sure:

Finally, a group of women they aren’t actually blaming for everything.

Or at least that’s what I’m assuming. I’m not going to read the actual topic; my brain has already turned to mush.

In conclusion, the Incels.is forums are a cesspool of hatred and self-hatred, and you absolutely should not go there to “talk to people just like you” (who might not really be much like you at all).

Considering that a ton of men, including prominent ones like Matt Yglesias have said Chris Cuomo enabling his brother’s sexually predatory was understandable, and they’d do the same, it mighty actually be true that incels are pretty normal, they’re just more up front about their misogyny.

Although to be fair, there’s plenty of female “Cuomosexuals” saying the same shit.

Sigh.

Curries will never be as powerful as jews because jews eat curries. Even non-jews eat curries. Curries just have no chance.

I mean what do you expect? It’s not like a mix of spices could control the universe.

But for real, I really hate it when these assholes go out of their way to make it harder for me to hire really great computer scientists.

I mean what do you expect? It’s not like a mix of spices could control the universe.

Well, not a mixture like a blend, but perhaps a melange…

The logo is designed to generate sympathy too. Just a lonely, unassuming stick guy shuffling along, hands in pockets, downcast because he can’t find a date.

A more truthful logo would be a stick guy plotting a mass shooting.

Well, there was that one Frank Herbert novel …

I just noticed that one of those incels (the window roller) has a profile pic that looks like Elliott Rodger.
Now I want to cry.

When I see that logo I think, Guys, get some self-respect. And maybe some fascinating hobbies.

Guys, your hobby should not be guns. Maybe work on your artistic skills. Turn that stick figure into a figure drawing.

And of course they use the gender-neutral ‘people’. The insincerity is nauseating.

“People who lack a significant other”, then you get in there and it’s all “Guys, I thought of a new way to abuse foids!”

Reminds me of those anodyne names right-wing groups adopt to conceal their true goals. “Family Freedom Council” always turns out to be some front for Oral Roberts law graduates plotting how to repeal the 14th Amendment.

@Kat – If only they would find some productive hobby besides amplifying each other’s insecurities. Maybe a better logo would be a bunch of crabs in a bucket.

Of course they say “people” and mean men. They don’t think women are actual people, they believe women are some kind of strange parasitic subhuman animal/other species that at BEST pretends to have emotions and personalities but actually doesn’t and is therefore worthy of nothing but contempt.

That’s part of their whole problem.

@Seth S:

They don’t think women are actual people, they believe women are some kind of strange parasitic subhuman animal/other species that at BEST pretends to have emotions and personalities but actually doesn’t and is therefore worthy of nothing but contempt.

But who are nonetheless necessary sources of the incel Holy Grail, Magical Validating Sex. (And any sex that didn’t clear their sinuses and their psychological issues and confer comic book superpowers, along with a Certified Certificate of Protagonisthood, or came from someone who didn’t resemble a Hooters waitress, or was imperfect, awkward, or unpracticed in any way, wasn’t real Magical Validating Sex—meaning that they’re entitled to a refund and do-overs.)

Of course, if the sex was the exhilarating thrill ride porn portrays as typical, that means that the %#$&*! must have learned it somewhere, no doubt at the hands (and other salient parts) of Chad—which makes her damaged goods and what happened therefore not real Magical Validating Sex.

Indeed, perhaps the best working definition of Magical Validating Sex is that you can’t have any.

@weirwoodtreehugger: chief manatee

I can’t stop laughing at these Cuomosexuals defending a rapist to the death. Like damn are some people desperate for an authority figure that is vaguely nice to them. Some grade A celeb god in the flesh idolization.

Like damn it’s almost as bad as those music fan women who kept defending rapists like R Kelly or that Kpop star who murdered people. Where does this hero worship come from?

I’m sorry, but “noodlewhore”?

I mean, is there anyone who is NOT a noodlewhore? Noodles are fucking awesome!

Also echoing the “people”/”men” equivalence that simply denies human status to all women, because incels are fuckwads.

@Gerry Sherry – Oral Roberts was an American televangelist from a few decades ago. He was one of the pioneers of prosperity gospel, which allowed him to rake in donations and flaunt silk suits, diamond rings, expensive cars, and opulent houses. All of that, of course, was evidence that he was specially blessed (and not at all embezzling or dipping illegally into his school’s endowment). He founded Oral Roberts University, which is one of the pipelines that takes homeschooled kids, gives them some basic training in law and economics, then injects them into various right wing think tanks devoted to advancing the right wing agenda. It’s a Christian university, similar to Liberty University or Bob Jones. Many strict rules for students: no alcohol, tobacco, or drugs; modest dress, especially for girls; no interracial dating, etc.

As to why they want to restore slavery, well…*gestures around at everything*

@Crip Dyke:

I’m sorry, but “noodlewhore”? 
I mean, is there anyone who is NOT a noodlewhore? Noodles are fucking awesome!

And note further that they don’t even extend the usage to, oh, “matzahwhore” or “fried chickenwhore”; Jews and Black people would seem to be the Ur-Others.

@Full Metal Ox:

Indeed, perhaps the best working definition of Magical Validating Sex is that you can’t have any.

One of the few instances in which they are, ironically and accidentally, correct. No one can have Magical Validating Sex because Magical Validating Sex is not a thing that exists.

Maybe the reason they’re not getting dates is because they always have their hands in their pockets, never look up, and have bad posture.

And the personality thing.

Imagine if it really was a forum for the lonely… something actually useful, that didn’t make sex the Ultimate and Only Meaning of Life, that maybe at least mentioned that it’s perfectly possible to have a good life as a single too. That not having a partner doesn’t in any way make you a lesser person. Maybe some take-downs on common myths/norms about what a life must contain to be worthwhile – feminism to the rescue!

Perhaps some tips on self-care and mental health resources. That you shouldn’t wait for love to give you a good life – that you should take care of yourself here and now!

Encouragement to engage in life, regardless of relationship status. If you do this and later find a partner, you will have a genuine relationship with them for the person they are, they will not be a status symbol or a tool to fix the hole in your soul.

@Gatecrasher:

In short: pretty much what Alana had in mind when she originated the term and launched the first incel forum in the 90’s?

(Like the guy who formulated—and later disavowed—the alpha/beta/omega model of wolf sociology, she’s aghast at what her successors unleashed upon the world and has long since disowned the term.)

@GSS ex noob:

Maybe the reason they’re not getting dates is because they always have their hands in their pockets, never look up, and have bad posture.

Also hard to get dates when you’re crossing against the lights (because you didn’t bother to look up; also, crosswalks are a government beta sheep control device put there by Teh Joos) and get hit by a car.

There’s a metaphor in there somewhere.

Ooglyboggles,

Dying on the hill of defending two brothers who are mediocre at best and owe all their success to nepotism is just the most pathetic thing I can’t imagine. These people really need to take a step back and evaluate their life choices.

I’m not really up to date on my bigotry — I assume “curries” means Indians (as in from India)?

@rabid rabbit:

Yep, and I’ve also seen “spices” used in that capacity, to specify who the speaker will and won’t date.

”Noodle” or “rice”= East Asian.
”Taco” or “bean”= Latin.
”Mayo” or “vanilla”= White Anglo.
”Chocolate” = Black.

@Buttercup: I have a Jewish friend with lots of electronics who bought one of those just because of that. The whole family got a kick out of it, and it was plugged in in a prominent place (living room, I think?), not hidden away.

The family started out as a married couple, and by the time this came out, they’d had two exuberant kids, so the house was, indeed, literally +Jews!

The use of cuisine as racial abuse makes me wonder whether these people subsist on mayo and white bread.

@Moggie: I’d bet so. Which would make them even crankier, what with the lack of fiber.

I thought of another thing regarding the stick figure. He’s always walking along with hands in pockets and head down, which means he’s running into things head first for not seeing them. We know what repeated concussions do to a person’s brain, and thus their intelligence and emotions.
