Scott Alexander is a psychiatrist, blogger, incelologist and former incel who refers to people on the inceldom spectrum as "the romanceless". He formerly ran the blog Slate Star Codex, a near-anagram of his own pseudonym. He is most notable for debunking the stereotype that people on the inceldom spectrum are entitled and his critique of third-wave feminism. He also wrote about Scott Aaronson getting into conflict with feminists. He is popular in U.S. rationalist circles.
In June 2020, he shut down his blog in response to a doxxing threat by a New York Times journalist (even though his name was already public on the internet, though not as prominently), who did doxx his name and affinity to proponents of corporal punishment and race science later on. In early 2021, Scott made a new blog.
