Incel means Involuntary Celibate. It’s someone who is living a life of celibacy. However, it’s not through their choice, rather the collective decision of the rest of humanity not to sleep with them. They’ve been classed by many as a hate group due to their hatred of women. The same women they think owe them sex. They tend to be a loud group of men on a dark corner of the internet. Essentially, they’re miserable and they blame all women for that. There are a lot of cases of that hatred manifesting into violence.
Example Use: “I matched with a guy who is showing signs of being an incel. His hatred for women is terrifying. I’ve blocked him.”« Back to Glossary Index
