A mentalcel is someone whose inceldom can be attributed to some psychological factor. It is an umbrella term that encompasses several mental health issues including depression, Asperger syndrome, PTSD, AVPD (avoidant personality disorder), body dysmorphic disorder, neuroticism, anxiety, autism, social awkwardness, ingrained prudishness, hi intelligence, or even being normal. Some mentalcels attribute their situation as deriving from non-DSM related issues such as being misanthropic, alexithymic, hedonophobic, cherophobic, or a strictly allosexual aromantic. Some mentalcels either turn to ascetism or languish in dreephilia. Among hetero women, mentalceldom sometimes derives from phallophobia, and among hetero men, it may derive from eurotophobia. Mentalcel is a hyponym of the word medcel. Men with mental health concerns are twice more likely than women with mental health concerns to go sexless.
Nurture vs nature[edit | edit source]
Nurture vs nature is a debate on the development of one's phenotype. Academic fields wherein this debate occurs includes ecology, behavioural genetics, epigenetics and social determinism. The introductory paragraph largely focuses focused on psychological problems which can often ba attributed to nature. On the other hand, mentalceldom can also be a by-product of upbringing. This is called nurture.
Mentalcels have often grown up in a helicopter parenting household, a state that often results in hedonophobia, which inhibits people from seeking what they want. Mentalcels who had an abusive upbringing are sometimes called PTSDcels or abusecels. A great skit showcasing the mentalcel trajectory was made by Buzzfeed in a video called "Beta Male".
Other factors that have been suggested as contributing to mentalceldom include schooling in single-sex rather than coed or mixed-sex education.
Androphobia[edit | edit source]
Mentalceldom is sometimes caused by internalized androphobia. Being raised as a boy in an otherwise all-female household that championed feminism is the most likely culprit of internalized androphobia, especially if at least one of these female relatives has a combination of social anxiety disorder as well as narcissistic disorder. The reason why internalized androphobia can cause mentalceldom is for the same reason that androphobia in women can hamper their changes at relationships. Its because you stumble and falter at courtship, even though courtship should be the most natural thing in the world as it perches from millions of years of evolution. Whereas in women androphobia recognized all men as potential threats, internalized androphobia turns that fear inwards and men become overly self-conscious whereby they view themselves as a menace-in-waiting when around the opposite sex.
Mental health[edit | edit source]
Involuntary celibacy has been attributed to psychological factors, such as social awkwardness, a lack of social skills, lack of confidence or flirting skills, trust issues, addiction, shyness, recreational sex invoking feelings of guilt, fears of unreciprocation of romantic overtures or apathy or an inability to decipher social cues. It has also been suggested that people who live involuntarily celibte lives may have psychological disorders such as depression, Asperger syndrome, and body dysmorphic disorder.
Neurotypical and "normal" mentalcels[edit | edit source]
Although the term mentalcels usually implies that one has some neurological condition that prevents one from forming a romantic relationship, the scope of mentalcels can also be broadened to include otherwise totally normal men. Several studies have found that psychopathic men are more attractive to women than non-psychopathic men. This brings the topic of mentalceldom into a grey area. Who is actually crazy? Is the normal guy whose normalness renders him boring to women and as such confines him to a lifetime of inceldom? Or the psychopathic traits which are obnoxious, harmful to society, but nonetheless seem endearing to women? Yes the normal guy who's normalness is boring is crazy but society would have us believe otherwise. It is off course that psychopathic traits have flourished or even metastasized in society because those biological traits have proven to be a useful courting trait. perhaps natural selection guided by women ensures that such enter and forever remain within the human gene pool.
Even women who adamantly claim that they oppose psychopathic traits, find psychopaths a turn-off etc. will freely admit that they prefer a man who is very assertive. The man should be leading the romantic interactions and liaisons. This demand for assertiveness would have been a reasonable demand in the 1930s, and earlier when most of the cards were in the man's hands. But are these demands still reasonable in the 21st century when many of those cards are in the woman's hands? Women match or outmatch men at adulting in several ways they didn't in the past; for example they leave the home earlier, they're more likely to have a university degree, they are also more likely to have first-hand grown up with an adult parent of the same sex. All these factors and more means power has shifted into the hands of women. But are women aware that the cards are in their hands? If so, should women be expected to take more initiative?
How often do you hear women say, you're not sufficiently badwy, funny, entertaining, or perilous? But is it really necessary for a man to have these qualities? Why can't a man simply be normal, or bland? Especially when considering that women are often not required to have tose traits. This situation has blurred the line between what constitutes a mentalcel and doesn't. You could have straight A's at school, be neurotypical, but because you're slightly less assertive than the other guy who was beta orbiting her, she cancels you for consideration. So in a nutshell, if the modern dating scene remains static and doesn't change its ways, we're heading towards a future where something as simple as being unassertive relegates you into the mentalcel camp. Or in laymen's terms, being mentally normal, renders you mentally defective.
The "therapy" interjection[edit | edit source]
It has also been suggested that there is a correlation between involuntary celibacy and other psychological issues such as neuroticism, anxiety, and autism, extreme introversion or general mental ailments.
One of the most common interjections made by bluepilled normies when coming across a mentalcel is along the lines of "go seek therapy". But what these normies fail to realize is that the training received by modern western therapists isn't exactly tailor-made for men. For example, it remains difficult for modern therapists to fathom that abuse can be female perpetrated, especially when its female-against-male, due to a systemic and gynocentric system that nauseates at the thought of depicting women in an unflattering light. As such, one of the main culprits of mentalcel dysfunctionality at the home, the single mother's emotional and psychological abusiveness, remains unviable territory for therapists.
