incels -> males experiencing inceldom[edit source]

If I understand correctly, there are people out there who'd interpret "incel" in bad faith, e.g. political incels rather than non-self-described incels? I'm wondering whether it is worthwhile to restrict our language because of such people. They are unlikely to be changed by specific language use, nor will they plausibly complain about it being used somewhere, so the only result seems that it reduces legibility.

Yes, there are people who prefer to see the word incel as an identity and proper noun, rather than what it actually is ... a description, experience and social demographic. They out themselves when they say stuff like "started self-identifyng as an incel". They make it sound like its some sort of hobby or something you have volition over. If we increased terminology such as "experience", it would emphasize the "involuntary" aspect of it, since as we know, incel literally means involuntary celibacy.
