Inceldom is a disability, nonsexuality, circumstance, social phenomenon and condition characterized by an inability to get a romantic or sexual partner, despite repeated efforts towards this goal, while approaching a wide variety of people. It is widely considered to be almost entirely a male-only condition.
Prevalence[edit | edit source]
Due to the existence of a huge gender disparity, China probably has the highest or one of the highest amounts of inceldom in the world. In other words, it is the state of someone whose SMV, decile position and LMS is so low, they have been reduced to a constant state of nonredamancy.
The share of men under 30 who aren't having sex has nearly tripled to 28% in 2018 in the past decade according to the Washington Post using data from the General Social Survey.
As such, incels sometimes refer to themselves as the 28 percenters.
Due to the variance in the degree to which individual incels get romantically rejected, inceldom is sometimes referred to as a spectrum, hence the term inceldom spectrum.
Scope[edit | edit source]
Some commonly cited causes of inceldom include, ethniceldom, mentalceldom and uglyceldom, with people experiencing them referred to as ethnicels, mentalcels and uglycels respectively. Inceldom among humans refers to the state of someone whose romantic overtures consistently and perpetually results in nonredamancy. The term inceldom does not apply to every adult who is sexually inactive. For example someone who is celibate for religious reasons (priests) or because they never bothered to date is a volcel rather than an incel. Inceldom is not restricted to homosapians. Omega characteristics are found in both humans and non-human animals, although inceldom rates vary significant for each species. For example the Blue Manakin is an animal well known for having sexual selection norms that relegates most of its males into inceldom.
Incelosphere[edit | edit source]
The incelosphere is a loosely connected set of websites and forums wherein people gather to discuss being romantically unsuccessful. Those who visit these sites are affectionately referred to as cybercels or incelospherians. The network of online communities wherein people experiencing inceldom gather is called the incelosphere. Frequenters of the incelosphere are arguably unrepresentative of inceldom as a whole. This is because one of the key facets of inceldom is social withdrawal. Th incelosphere constitutes the segment of inceldom that is cordial enough to have a proclivity for joining online communities.
