Incels: When Testosterone Goes Bad | Psychology Today
Incels are a serious problem.

Bookmarked because the author's advice includes a crack about prison rape. WTF.

Why the author is a professor of anything but toilet licking, I don't know.

Recently, youtuber Natalie Wynn brought up a great concept in her breakdown of why Incels believe the things they do– “masochistic epistemology.” She put it simply, “what hurts, is true.”

My Night with Jordan B. Peterson - Slog - The Stranger
(A note on enforced monogamy: Sexologist David Ley has a great blog post on Peterson’s argument. He writes that while most research does indeed show that monogamous societies are less violent than polygamous societies, Peterson, is “using data, research, evidence, and theories, based on our dark past, where women did not hold the right to choose what to do with their own sexuality. The history of socially- and religiously-enforced monogamy was one in which female sexuality was property, and marriage was based on economics. The reason that the Incel movement is angry at women, rather than society at large, is that these young men recognize that when women are given the right to choose, they are not choosing them.”)

...Frankly, I don’t need Jordan Peterson. I already took Psych 101, and my value system, at this point, is firmly in place. But, clearly, he is filling a need that people are yearning to have filled. They love him. They buy his books and listen to his lectures and donate to his Patreon and pay for his "self-authoring" and personality assessment programs online. Ideally, he would use his platform to inspire this massive audience to think for themselves; but I fear that what they are taking from it is that they should listen to him instead.

After the show, I hung out with Weinstein, Rubin, and Peterson in the green room backstage. It was all off the record, so I won’t tell you what was discussed, but I will say this: Peterson’s persona is real. He’s exactly the same onstage as he is when the cameras are off. So whatever the criticism of Peterson, I do not think he’s a fraud or a fake. Rather, I think he’s a placebo, one that works for some people and doesn’t for others. It’s hard to see what’s so controversial about that.

The Deadly Incel Movement’s Absurd Pop Culture Roots
If we’ve failed to take incels’ violence seriously, that is in part because we’ve failed to recognize this broader connection between misogyny and mass killing.

The Rage of the Incels | The New Yorker
The idea that this misogyny is the real root of their failures with women does not appear to have occurred to them.

Incel stands for “involuntarily celibate,” but there are many people who would like to have sex and do not. (The term was coined by a queer Canadian woman, in the nineties.) Incels aren’t really looking for sex; they’re looking for absolute male supremacy. Sex, defined to them as dominion over female bodies, is just their preferred sort of proof.

Incels tend to direct hatred at things they think they desire; they are obsessed with female beauty but despise makeup as a form of fraud. Incel culture advises men to “looksmaxx” or “statusmaxx”—to improve their appearance, to make more money—in a way that presumes that women are not potential partners or worthy objects of possible affection but inconveniently sentient bodies that must be claimed through cold strategy.

What incels want is extremely limited and specific: they want unattractive, uncouth, and unpleasant misogynists to be able to have sex on demand with young, beautiful women. They believe that this is a natural right.

What parents of boys should bear in mind about the 'spurned' Texas school shooter Dimitrios Pagourtzis | The Independent
Male pride rests on the delusion that females can always be dominated (or “persuaded”, as it is so often recast). It is a delusion that is poisoning the minds of boys, creating a sense of grievance – and actual pain – where there should be none. For all the bullshit we hear from the Jordan Petersons of this world, there is no possible social arrangement in which men and boys can be guaranteed the willing, uncontested sexual and emotional labour of women and girls. You can brainwash, harass and threaten girls all you want, but even in the most extreme of circumstances they will carry on having minds of their own. It’s far easier and kinder to change the expectations of boys.

The Rage of the Incels | The New Yorker
Lately I have been thinking about one of the first things that I ever wrote for the Internet: a series of interviews with adult virgins, published by the Hairpin. I knew my first subject personally, and, after I interviewed her, I put out an open call. To my surprise, messages came rolling in.
