RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

Absolute Beginners are a community in the German incelosphere who also describe themselves as AB's. They define an Absolute Beginner as someone who has had few or no romantic experiences.


The community named itself after a David Bowie song of the same name.[1] The community was founded in the 1990s.[2] Some AB communities have an age-cut of 20.[3] Absolute Beginners usually range in age from the 20s to the 40s.[4] According to one sex consultant, there are one to two million AB's in Germany.[5]
