The homocel hypothesis is a model of male homosexuality that suggests that inceldom coupled with the blackpill (social exclusion, sexual frustration and hopelessness) eventually causes gayness. A similar model about "peripheralized" men (incels) making themselves into the female to get some crumbs from higher status men has been proposed by clinical psychologist Frank Muscarella in 2001 (alliance formation theory).
Another related model is the trans-vestigiality hypothesis which states that incels turn gay and feminine to evade aggression from larger males, and then steal their mating opportunities as "sneaker males".
Evidence[edit | edit source]
Evidence for the homocel hypothesis can be found in prison homosexuality (see prisoncel), where sexually frustrated men engage in homosexual acts to fulfill their sexual needs. The more dominant male may imagine his sexual experience with women while doing so, and the less dominant male is motivated to offer consensual sex in exchange for protection and resources.
Peripheralized males engaging in homosexual behavior (grooming, penis display and touching, and sodomy) can be also found in various primate species, and has been observed in all-male societies of pirates, as well as in vulnerable British men transported to Australia as punishment for crimes. Homoerotic alliances between low and high status males are also evidenced in reports of working-class England at the turn of the century, Australian Aborigines, tribes in Melanesia and Papua (though homosexuality in some Melanesian cultures often has a ritualized, religious element), New Guinea, contemporary Thailand, and Edo era Japan. Muscarella suggested peripheralized men can establish sexually intimate social ties with sexually frustrated men of higher social standing, to partially re-gain their access to resources and potentially restoring some reproductive success (and hence be adaptive behavior). Pederasty in several cultures like Romans and Ancient Japan may be related to such adaptive behavior as the growing boys often lack status and can gain access to resources through a more dominant/older male, as well as get resources in terms of knowledge being passed on from a more experienced male.
Resources are scarcer and hence more important in harsh ecologies such as the winter in Northern/Eastern hemispheres, so one would expect k-selected males there to exhibit more homocel and homosocial behavior to get some crumbs in dire conditions, whereas peripheralized males in easy, tropical ecologies can simply pick fruits all year long. Evidence for this may be that U.S. Asians are three times more likely to report a homosexual orientation than the country's average. Homosexual orientation is in fact also related to IQ.
Evidence for homocel hypothesis can also be found in mouse utopia experiments, where socially deprived rodents in extremely overpopulated environments started engaging in deviant sexual behavior, including homosexuality.
The principle of sexual frustration may be relevant to sexual deviance in general. After all, being denied access to "normal" sex, likely pushes individuals to consider alternative ways of satisfying their sexual needs. In fact, one robustly observes higher incidence rates of rape when prostitution is limited.
Since autists overwhelmingly are socially excluded, have low social status and frequently experience inceldom, the homocel theory may explain why autists are 10x more likely to be homosexual, or to transition to another gender, with research finding much higher rates and severity of autism among transsexuals. Disabled men are also twice as likely to have an alternative sexual orientation.
66% of men who were homosexual change their orientation to heterosexual five years later which might point to homocels seeing opportunities to ascend in accordance with Muscarella's alliance formation theory.
Anecdotal evidence[edit | edit source]
In Social Media, Memes, and Anime[edit | edit source]
Futanari porn[edit | edit source]
One observes a high consumption of futanari porn (females with penises) in some forums frequented by incels such as 4chan. More anecdotal evidence manlet sex-workers who can only attract male customers and then become fetishists of cock. Incel men who become bicurious rarely become romantically interested in men, but rather their interest becomes a fetish in sexual organs and desire. Vlogger BrendioEEE has accused r9k of being a pipeline from inceldom to homosexuality through futanari and cock fetish pornography. Indeed there is a whole genre of "porn" where cropped pictures of erect penises are mashed up against faces of women to make incels associate women with cock.
Femboys[edit | edit source]
Nowadays femboys are becoming more and more popular on the internet. There is a concerning amount of attention given especially by alt right incels to femboys on social media. While this may be just for meme purposes, it can not go unnoticed. This also may explain the rise in "femboy compilations" on social media apps like TikTok. It also can be noted that various animes especially in more recent times to include characters that look highly feminine, and sometimes can pass off as women or look completely like women but are identified as male, used to (and still often) referred to as "traps" on online forums such as 4chan to be boys, a few good examples being Felix Argyle from Re:Zero, or Astolfo from the Fate Grand Order series. Many of which tend to be very popular in anime communities. In anime communities this may have significant comorbidity with the below sub-type.
Yaoi (BL)[edit | edit source]
Although Yaoi (boys love) is largely produced and consumed by a majority female demographic (also known as fujoshis), there are many male gay and bisexual people (and some even self-identified straight people) who also participate in its consumption,
Similarly to the above two sub-categories where feminine features are mixed with homosexual aspects, within many anime communities, many male consumers of Yaoi may often have shifted at least partially away from traditional anime hentai to find interest in more androgynous anime boys often with some feminine characteristics as preferable, similarly, some may find shota (the male equivalent of Loli) as desirable despite the fact shotas typically have traditionally few masculine features and sometimes even are shown to crossdress. Although these standards of male attractiveness tend to be seen as highly unrealistic for most real men, and many male consumers of BL (typically referred to as "fudanshis") may often be bisexual or even identify as straight in real life due to the significant difference between typical androgynous anime boys and actual men who often don't meet said standards
One could argue that Yaoi is based and very similar to the two above sub-categories or that they could be apart of a natural progression of interest where for example an avid porn addict (such as a Weebcel who watches hentai) may start slowly skewing away from tradition hentai doujins and begin experimenting with consuming with more niche content, such as futanari and slowly start progressing to femboys and then straight on Yaoi as the consumer becomes more comfortable with certain male attributes which can be argued to make people more likely to identify as bisexual or gay. This might hold some water as some sources imply that the more porn you watch the more likely you are to be bisexual 
Men who tend to avoid androgynous males or typical gender dynamics and focus on relationships of more hyper-masculine hunky males in media like Bara are often separate from the above and can be considered their own sub-type who are often typically more likely to identify as fully or mostly gay which can be noted due to their lack of any feminine features in characters and tending to over emphasize their masculine traits.
In Politics and Real Life[edit | edit source]
Arabic countries[edit | edit source]
It is rumored that in Arabic countries, where many men are priced out of a bride due to mass societal polygyny, that homosexual acts become relatively commonplace in private among males experiencing inceldom as a coping mechanism. It is also rumored that in certain Arabic terrorist organizations men dress as women and have sex with the other men, again as a cope for having no one to love
Getgle's video[edit | edit source]
YouTuber Getgle made a video that explained the basic gist of the homocel hypothesis, with his own bias. Warning, creepy homosexual evangelism contained therein:
