reddit.com/r/Braincels is a blackpilled incelibate community hosted by Reddit. It is watched over by Lord of Lords Blackops2cel. Braincels is arguably the second largest 'incelospherian' community, due to the amount of alts, normies, trolls, watchdog users, banned users, and females, pushing their current numbers to 43,803 at the time of writing. The subreddit gets an estimated 2-3 posts per minute, and has an *enormous* amount of lurkers. Braincels generally produces more lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek content compared to other incel communities, as it largely consists of memes in support of the blackpill and baits for r/inceltears.
Braincels was created by AnathematicAnarchist before the /r/incels ban. He was later forgotten by the 'community' until he wrote a suicide letter, after which the community embraced him. He has not posted since his suicide letter. Given the large number of suicides from braincels that have been tied to real Facebook accounts, it is more likely than not that Anathematic Anarchist commited suicide.
The subreddit was occupied by the female head-moderator, Board_Gaming, who had repeatedly self-proclaimed to not believe in the Blackpill, posted in Inceltears, and seemengly disliked Incels. She has also been hypothesised to be perhaps autistic, due to the nature of the vast majority of comments she makes being of the form "I am not X" or "I do not X", which have spawned a number of mock accounts on the sub that imitate her. In October of 2018, she stepped down as head-moderator and was replaced by /u/IQ9K, who added 5 new moderators to help him out. The forum became more ban-heavy after Board_Gamings absence.
The community to this day still seems to be quite active, despite being quarantined from the rest of Reddit by Reddit admins on September 27, 2018 on the basis of misogyny. On the date of the quarantining of Braincels, Reddit gave a link to a feminist male studies organization, telling incels to learn, "positive masculinity", sparking many memes making fun of the term, "positive masculinity", for it's comically vague thought-police vibe. It was later learned that the founder of the male study org that Reddit linked, Michael Kimmel, was an alleged sexual assaulter, leading to much questioning as to whether or not Reddit meant, "positive masculinity", to mean rape.
