A fakecel (antonym: truecel) also known as a chadcel is someone who pretends to be incel, identifies as incel, or just likes hanging out with incels, despite having had sexual relationships in the past. Some fakecels know the pain of inceldom, because they experienced long stretches of inceldom in between relationships, or became sexually active at an old age. Chadcel or fakecel can also refer to someone who is good looking, but is incel due to mentalceldom.
Many incel communities have fakecels amongst their userbase. On incels.co, some notable fakecel's have been outed including, but not at all limited to Limerencel, TellemT, blackletcel, and whogivesafucc.
Fakecels on r9k[edit | edit source]
There is a widely propagated rumor that discord servers were made by fakecels to coordinate an effort to get robot's on r9k to undergo gender transition surgery. They were said to do this by spamming pics of trans porn and telling incels that they could only ascend by transitioning. Because of this rumor, any posting suggesting incels fit in with the LGBTQ community is met with extreme suspicion as an anti-incel discord psyop.
