With the recent release of the Captain Marvel movie, there was much discussion on the Web. Rather, discussion flowed by insults. One of the more common insults was incel. Previous to this year, I really hadn’t noticed its use floating around the web in an place other than the manosphere. Now, it has gone mainstream.
Let us examine it further as an insult. The implication is that a man isn’t really much of man if he can’t get laid. Of course, it is women that hold the keys to sex, so the implication is that women are not interested in him. All of which might very well be true.
So, let us dig a bit deeper here. Why aren’t women interested in large swaths of men? There are many reasons, but unleashed hypergamy driving sex with hot men is a big one. So basically, these women are sluts. These days, women don’t like to hear the word slut. It is supposed to be banished for the vocabulary. Except it never will be. This is because guys don’t want to marry sluts, and never will. This is important to women, because even if they might say otherwise, they do want to eventually marry. One might make the case that when the word incel is bandied about, one could look at the speaker and envision slut.
But there probably is more to it. There are many fellas having little/no sex, but they get on with things, the way guys do. They find substitutes, they engage in activities with their friends, they get hobbies. Women’s leverage over them lessens. That is what women really fear, leading them to lash out with insults.
In any way, shape or form, hurling incel insults does women’s cause no good
Addendum by Deti:
In Red Pilldom, one of the first concepts I learned/read about was “shaming”. Which is what the word “incel” has become. It’s become another shaming term. “Incel” has now become simply another word for
–small dicked loser who can’t get laid
–man who disagrees with me
–man who will not serve my interests
–man who will not help me
–coworker who will not do/fix/redo my work for me
–male antifeminist, MGTOW, MRA
–man who calls me out on my BS
–man who watches Fox News
etc. etc. etc. ad nauseam ad infinitum.
Over at the old Badgerhut site (now long gone), Badger occasionally considered that there would be a tipping point in the sex wars, but queried “where it would tip to”. I think we’re finally seeing it. If we’re not at the tipping point, we’re close to it. I suspect more and more men are just not hearing the complaints anymore. They’re just tuning everyone else out. Which, in my view, is why the screaming is getting louder and more shrill, the positions being staked out more ridiculous, and the nature of the coming “hard reset” getting harder.
We’re past the point of reversing and fixing this within the current social and political framework. I think we passed that point at least 15 years ago. The “hard reset” gets harder with each passing day…..
