I’ve never been one of these people.
In my personal life, I am utterly normal. I dated a few women in high school and college. Several years ago, I met my wife at a nationalist conference. We got married and had a son. I never had anything to do with the manosphere or the trolling culture on the chans.
“Newly released video footage of a police interview with Alek Minassian, the suspect in the 2018 Toronto van attack, sheds light on how he became an incel, a term used to describe an “involuntary celibate” male, as well as how he was subject to a slow radicalization process that ultimately led him to kill 10 people.
In a four-hour interview after his arrest, the transcript of which was unsealed by a judge and released on Friday, Minassian admitted that the attack had been motivated in large part by his resentment toward “Chads” and “Staceys,” incel terminology for conventionally attractive men and women, respectively. He said that he was a virgin and that he resented women for having sexually rejected him in favor of “giv[ing] their love and affection to obnoxious brutes.”
Minassian also told police that he intended the attack to serve as a call to arms for a “beta uprising,” meaning that he hoped to encourage other disaffected young men (or “betas”) to commit acts of violence. “I was thinking that I would inspire future masses to join me,” he said during the interview. …”
There is a huge loser sub-culture on the internet.
The Alt-Right got mixed up with these people. I’m not talking about the manosphere per se. I’m fully aware of the distinctions between MRAs (Men’s Rights Activists), PUAs (Pick Up Artists), MGTOWs (Men Going Their Own Way) and incels. There are people who follow the manosphere who are fully capable of picking up and dating women. There are also these people like Elliot Rodger or Alek Minassian who are full of rage against women. Some of these losers are violent accelerationists in the sense of wanting to inspire an incel revolution.
