Incels, Plastic Surgery and Toxic Online SubCulture - Trumpism’s Ideological Core Revealed
If you don’t know what I’m talking about here: bless you. You have led a good and honest life, free from this particular disgusting subculture.
Briefly: Incel = involuntarily celibate, ie young men who can’t get laid
Chad = their vision of a macho alpha male who has women throwing themselves at him
The writer tracks the progress of a truly sad creature who goes by the online handle of “Truth4lie” - a self-loathing guy of middle-eastern descent, living in Holland, who becomes convinced that surgery is his ticket to endless female attention and ultimate happiness.
Truth4lie’s friends hated Chad, but they were also convinced their lives would improve significantly if they could somehow become Chad. They tried “gymceling” and “steroidmaxxing” (incel-speak for bodybuilding and taking steroids). They tried jelqing (penis-stretching exercises) and mewing (chewing hard foods to bulk up the masseter muscles, said by British orthodontist Mike Mew to augment the jawline). They tried pulling on their faces to reshape them. They got into skin care.
Some wanted more elemental improvements. More than pudgy flesh or pocked skin, it was their bones that made incels unfuckable, they believed. Their quarrel was with the very collagen that had ossified in their mother’s womb, the calcium phosphate with the potential to outlast civilizations, maybe even souls — or to be weeded out of the gene pool. “The difference between a Chad and an incel is literally a few millimeters of bone,” reads one meme.
If you go down the rabbit hole into the incel forums, such as Lookism, you will find that the incels lash out at each other as much as they scream about how UNFAIR it all is that they can’t have sex with supermodels every hour of every day, just the way that it is on all the porno sites that they frequent.
A favorite sport seems to be bullying each other with taunts and obscene scenarios, calculated to drive insecure males into a rage and then despair, with frequent calls to kill themselves mixed in with threats to commit mass murder the way that 7 of the incels have done in the past few years (Hidden because it’s disgusting).
lol at you “bullying” anyone, you utter autistic delusional bitch. you’ve never bullied anyone and you never will. you’re the one getting bullied brutally left and right by absolutely everyone and especially me. you are so selfhating, that even yourself knows you deserve an agonizing brutal painful death, you virgin ugly useless reject. this is me raping your horny kinky cumskin whore mother on top of your burned up worthless body.
Wow. Just - wow.
So much about the pro-Trump movement starts to come into focus the more you look at incels. They were the force behind Gamergate, which then morphed into 4chan, took over Reddit, infests the comment threads of Breitbart, and is now fed into America’s info-stream via Fox News & Limbaugh.
This is pure poison. It is ugly, but we can no longer look away. The insecurity, rage, sense of wounded narcissism - this is the core of Trumpism.
And it’s winning.
