Volceldom is the state of being volcel, which is short for voluntarily celibate. It is the opposite and antonym of the word incel. Being volcel means you choose via volition to live a romanceless, dateless and sexless lifestyle. Men are pretty much never volcels unless they are, low-T, extremely religious, made some strange ascetic vow, or prefer masturbation to sex with others, but the extremely religious volcel are creeps. Beware of men who say they are volcel, it's a weird lie and they are hiding something to themselves or others. A common phrase in the incelosphere is "fatcel = volcel".
Examples[edit | edit source]
Examples of volcels include MGTOW, monks, nuns, Catholic priests, sadhus, Qadiriyya or Haydariya Sufi saints, purity ballers, sex strikers, Skoptsy activists, extreme no-fappers (i.e 'semen rentention'), sex strikers (usually female social activists), purity pledgers etc
Some famous historical examples of individual volcels would be the Christian apostle Paul, who advised Christian men to eschew sexual intercourse and marriage, and the Buddha, who abandoned his wife and children to became an extreme ascetic monk.
Another extreme example of historical volcels would be the early Christian 'desert fathers' (ascetic monks), the most egregious example of which being Simeon Stylites, a 5th century Christian ascetic who died a virgin at age 67 and lived for 37 years on the top of a 15-meter pillar to quell any possible sexual temptation.
Importance (obsolescence)[edit | edit source]
The term volcel is one of the most important terms in the incelese lexicon. Thats because the volcel describes what incels are not. The English language is notorious for having words which initially had one definition, and then over time had the original meaning transplanted by a totally different meaning.
The original meaning of the word incel, means involuntary celibate. There are ongoing efforts to mke the meaning of this word obsolete. In order to stifle those efforts, one of the key instruments are announcing when its usage constrats entirely with its original meaning, via the existence of the term volcel. This will stifle any attempt to make the literal meaning of the term incel obsolete.
