Incels.wiki in news and academia
There have been quite a few academic and media outlets analyzing and referencing this wiki.
The academic articles are mostly from Europe and the United States, many of them post-graduate articles that are very lengthly and detailed albeit generally rather specious in their ideas. Some argue this type of academic activity is mostly rent-seeking or a waste of taxes. Few of them attempt to engage with claims and evidence made on the Wiki in a factual manner, with most either using the wiki as a reference for specific concepts linked to the incel subculture or as a glossary.
Below is a running list of academics, journal articles, news outlets, and various notable individuals and publications that have referenced the wiki.

De Cook[edit | edit source]
In March 2021, Julia R. DeCook, assistant professor for whatnot at Loyola University Chicago, wrote a French poststructualist type article attempting to analyse incel culture through the lens of the Lacanian spin on Freud's castration anxiety theory.
The article contains numerous factual mistakes. For example, contrary to the article, the incel wiki was not created in response to the ban of r/incels, but in response to the Wikipedia incel article. Further, unlike vocal members of r/incels, this wiki does not condone physical violence as noted in nearly all articles pertaining to violent topics or individuals, neither does it mention globalists or similar elites much at all.
