By including this public figure on this wiki, we are not necessarily implying they are incel (involuntarily celibate) or are in any way associated with incels. Furthermore, with regards to any actual incels listed on this wiki, inceldom is a life circumstance, not an insult or a movement/community.

Roger Devlin is a prominent academic philosopher and American white identitarian. He is the author of Sexual Utopia in Power, a book which argues for traditional monogamous marriage, something that puts him at odds with Esther Vilar, another prominent manosphere figure. He is also a regular author at Counter-Currents and the Occidental Quarterly.

He has done a number of interviews where he describes his positions in Sexual Utopia in Power.

Media lying[edit | edit source]

Some dumb media outlets like the New Republic have said that Roger coined the word hypergamy, which is simply a lie, the word was used a ton way before Roger's book, in books about sexology and also the caste-system in India.

He did however, certainly influence how the term "hypergamy" is used in the manosphere. The original meaning of hypergamy mostly referred to 'dating up' in status/money hierarchies. The meaning used by Devlin and others in the manosphere, (and thus incels) refers to a female tendency to 'date up' in virtually all areas.

Academic Work[edit | edit source]

He has also done academic philosophic writing, writing on Hegelian philosophy in Alexandre Kojève and the Outcome of Modern Thought (University Press of America, 2004).[1]

Alt-right[edit | edit source]

Devlin identifies as part of the alt-right,[2] which he describes as a "white advocacy"[3] movement, and is considered among its "most important thought leaders" according to VDARE.[4] Devlin attended the National Policy Institute conference which gained national attention after many in attendance performed Nazi salutes.[5] Devlin denounced this behaviour,[6] although he believed "there is nothing intrinsically wrong with" Nazi salutes.[2] He said he did not believe the alt-right should endorse national-socialism, and that the saluters were, “Nazi LARPing”. He is a major anti-feminist and men's rights influence in the White Nationalist movement, this has brought him into conflict with its many crypto-feminist elements.
