Weed's unfortunate elbow

Incel, is an academic sociological term that is short for and means, 'involuntary celibacy', a life circumstance. Specifically, it is the life circumstance of, "single without choosing to be so". And so it is not a community, subculture, organized group, movement, or a philosophy. Individual philosophies like the blackpill or subcultures like 4chan culture emerge on some, but not all, forums dedicated to involuntary celibates and go in and out of fashion. Inceldom was first academically recognized as a sociological phenomenon by the Donnelly Study. The Donnelly Study defined incels as all adults who would like to have a sexual or romantic relationship with someone of the gender they are attracted to but can't find one for free for 6 months or more, and then remain celibate. Most people who self-identify as incel are not standardcels as they cannot find *anyone* willing to have sex with them for free. This wiki is not an extension of any single academic project, forum, or subculture, but rather a cataloging of people, folk theories, scientific theories, and activities that relate in any way to the academic term: "incel". The first lexicographer to define "incel", defined it as a gender-neutral life cirumstance rather than a subculture. Its unabbreviated form was coined in 1739 by Antoine Banier in his book on ancient Greek mythology. Inceldom overlaps but is distinct from 'sexual frustration', in that an involuntary celibate may simply accept their incelibacy and not feel bad about it.

The current non-niche incel internet forums are: Incels.is, Reddit's Braincels, Incelistan, Love-shy.com, Incelswithouthate, and Foreveralone. Roughly between 6-14% of millenial men fall under the incelibate umbrella in America. Inceldom affects 10% of men and 5% of women in Germany.
