Incel is an academic sociological term that is short for involuntary celibacy, a life circumstance. Inceldom was first academically recognized as a sociological phenomenon by the Donnelly Study. This study defined incels as adults who fail to find a sexual partner for six months or more despite active efforts. However, in the incelosphere, there is disagreement about the exact definition.

Incel is not a movement or a community, but a gender-neutral life circumstance. Incels are a demographic that is highly diverse politically, racially, religiously and socioeconomically. Philosophies like the blackpill and political parties like the Incel Party do not represent all incels. Among American millennials, roughly 15-30% are incels, roughly 51% do not have a steady partner, roughly 30% are often or always lonely, and roughly 22% have no friends.

Current prominent incel forums are:,, Facebook's Incelistan,, Incelswithouthate, and Foreveralone. No mass murderers have been users of forums explicitly designated for inceldom. 4chan and PUAhate are/were not self-described incel forums.
