“I HATE women because they won’t date mij. They should be compelled to have lovemaking with mij because their rejection is detrimental to my wellbeing.”
This is a rough overview of the toxic beliefs held by a community of boys who loathe women.
Thesis groups call themselves “,incels”, – brief for involuntary celibate – and have a number of online communities where the common topics of conversation include: self-loathing, blaming women for their lack of love lives, sharing violent pescador fantasies and hating on “,normies”, (pretty much anyone who isn’t an incel).
They have special names for people they deem stereotypically attractive, known spil “,Stacys”, for women and “,Chads”, for guys, who are the targets for most of their hate.
For those of us who are only viewing thesis communities from the outside, it might be hard to comprehend that people actually hold thesis misogynistic – and frankly scaring – views and why they defend them so vehemently.
But one man, who used to be a self-proclaimed incel, offers a zonderling perspective of someone who wasgoed deep within the toxic community and found a way out.
He said he felt women ‘owed’ him a chance. Picture: humansofny/Instagram Source:Instagram
Humans of Fresh York posted a photo of an unnamed man to their Instagram pagina, along with his story of how he found himself embroiled ter a group that preaches hate and violence towards women.
The man, whose face is not shown ter the picture, began off by telling how he felt “,abjected and suicidal”, across his collegium years.
“,I’m not all that attractive. I have a speech impediment. I’m not good socially. I spotted other guys having romantic success and I felt a loterijlot of envy,”, he said.
“,I concluded that women owed mij something. They owed mij a chance. And I wasgoed angry they weren’t providing it to mij.”,
During this time he admits to forming a loterijlot of hateful opinions towards women and other dudes who he deemed more successful te their love lives. Thesis views were only exacerbated when he joined a number of online incel groups.

“,I found a lotsbestemming of boys there who felt just like mij. The community provided this pseudoscientific justification for hating women. It let us feel like it wasn’t our fault,”, he said.
“,Wij stoked each other’s anger. And it felt good. Honestly, anger is just very addictive.”,
He claims being given something to concentrate his anger on and people to blame for the frustration he felt ter certain areas of his life became a release for him.
He said it got to a point where he wished to feel angry about it and thesis incel groups would encourage his rage.
“,You want to feel angry when you’re suffering. It’s a substitute for what you’re missing,”, he said.
The man said he wasgoed now ashamed of the opinions he used to have but added that when you were actually te the community, it wasgoed hard to find a way out of that cycle of hatred.
Incels have gained more attention overheen the years after a string of mass killers were linked to the community, with Isla Perspectiva shooter Elliot Rodger, who killed six people and injured 14 before turning the gun on himself, being idolized by the incel crowd.

Other mass killers associated with the incel community include Quebec City mosque shooter Alexandre Bissonnette, Santa Fe schoolgebouw shooter Dimitrios Pagourtzis and Toronto van massacre accused Alek Minassian.
Incels have gained so much notoriety that there is even a dating webstek that specifically caters to them.
#DateAnIncel.com encourages women to have hook-up with incels to “,reduce risks that plague society”,, such spil the mass shootings so often associated with the subculture.
The webstek claims it is “,switching the world, two people at a time”, and is working to reduce the “,negative effects of Involuntary Celibacy”.
“,Thesis &#x,Incels’ often share the same common goals spil the surplus of the population – a desire for acceptance, love and community,”, the webstek reads.
“,Wij built #DateAnIncel to bring this minority group into the forefront of the online dating toneel, providing them with a podium to be connected with regular playmates.”,
The pitch finishes by encouraging people to form romantic relationships with incels spil a way to minimise the risk they pose to society.
