"Incel" vs "Inceldom"[edit]

@Spud @Westnichefaise Talk it out. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:28, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

I don't think there's a disagreement between us. Spud seemed to oppose the quote change. I dropped the quote change and merely changed it to a mass noun. I think its useful to discuss as a mass noun rather than countable noun since people seem to view it as a topic. @Westnichefaise Westnichefaise (talk) 17:07, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
@Westnichefaise Yes. Just don't change quotes. That is all. Spud (talk)
That's great! I guess we agree. I won't change the quote. I will simply change the countable noun to a mass noun. Westnichefaise (talk) 07:16, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
oop didnt see this, keep it as incel makes the most sense to me instead of inceldom, cheers!Neiltyson1fan (talk) 21:00, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Lede[edit]

Hello @Ariel31459 I see you are a good faith contributor, lets talk about your citation so we can add it in a way that is accurate. Typically re-introductions of terms arent particularly notable for a lede. Regardless, this is original research on your part as your citation does not say it was decades before the last use of the term. Only rationalwiki says that. Additions to this article should be based on sources. Alana is mentioned in the article, do you have something interesting and informative to add about her using a reliable source? If so, please include it in the relevant section. The lede is not for historical miscellania usally.Neiltyson1fan (talk) 16:48, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

OK. Not a big deal. I just thought it was interesting.Ariel31459 (talk) 20:28, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

With what proportion of incels is the 'involuntary' accurate? (ie they 'annoy or worse' women.) Anna Livia (talk) 19:43, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Lol[edit]

How is anybody truly an incel in a world where there are people who will shove their ding dong in anything that has a hole, and vice versa? Now, if you wanted to argue that there's people in this world who can't find anybody attractive... I mean, that's called asexuality though. 71.215.77.190 (talk) 18:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

The incel's think the "vice versa" doesn't happen. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:50, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Those people just need to discover Las Vegas. 169.198.254.65 (talk) 23:19, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
No. They don't. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 23:21, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
IP - do you include this?
To what extent is inceldom a negativie state of mind (and feeling 'everybody else' is having 'a right ding dong' but not them and #them women# are (insert sexist terms of choice)). Anna Livia (talk) 00:13, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie, you must be from Las Vegas, lol. 169.198.254.66 (talk) 00:59, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
No, I'm not. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 02:14, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
These people actually need to discover basically anywhere that isn't insular Internet communities. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 16:12, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Bad "psychology"[edit]

This article says that about 28% of men and women between the ages of 15 and 24 "are sexless," which I presume means, in the case of the males, most of them are incels. That is to say, their celibacy is not by choice. The suggestion that this condition presents prima facie as a psychological disorder is dubious. The compilation of violent incidents attributed to incels reminds me of the fact that most serial killers are white men. This is true, but not really useful.Ariel31459 (talk) 15:54, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
