involuntary celibate: someone who is celibate but doesn't want to be

Abbreviated term for the compound 'Involuntary Celibate'. In Darwinian terms a person deemed 'least fit to reproduce', manifested in social terms as someone unable to copulate due to the absence of even a single willing partner. More typically male than female. Hangs around on internet forums generally blaming females for this undesirable condition. Unable to compete on the level playing field of sexual equality can be seen clamouring for a return to the middle ages where all that was needed to nab a woman was two cows and a quarter acre. Could be considered a 'Darwinian loser' whose gene pool is facing extinction unless they address negative personality traits and/or get into physical condition necessary for attraction to opposite sex.
Woman: He's nice enough but he identifies as one of those incels.

Friend: Stay away from him. That's akin to announcing oneself as an unreformable loser.

An incel, or, "involuntarily celibate", is an individual (often male) who believes that society is conspiring against them to prevent them from having sex. However, the mainstream media would have you believe that this includes anyone that challenges backwards social norms or is open about their loneliness.

1 (formal and not opinionated) - An internet subculture. The word incel, stands for “involuntarily celibate”, meaning that they feel they are unable to find or be in a romantic or sexual relationship with someone due to reasons that are out of their control. They often talk together on forums on 4chan, reddit, or other incel forums that can be found on specific sites for incels. They typically have a history of loneliness and poor mental health.

2 (opinionated) - Incels are a community online who seem to have large issues with the world around them, unable to cope with the rejection they receive, blaming the world around them for their misfortune/poor mental health. Most of the things they say surround stereotypes or opinions, fuelling each other's rage. They blame women, other men, and pretty much anyone for their unsuccessful attempts at finding love or sex or their plain loneliness or social issues. Although it’s unfortunate, i don’t have a lot of empathy for people filled with so much rage for the world around them. They’re stubborn and stand by their opinions about the world around them. I personally believe that these are not just lonely men, these are genuinely horrible people who choose to blame the world for their issues. they’re insecure, gross, and overall terrifying people. If you’re an incel, i recommend getting some help and working on yourself instead of sulking on your little forums blaming everyone for your shit.

get your shit together. actually try.
normal human 1 - “hey, i saw Jared on one of those incel forums.”
normal human 2 - “oh god. is he alright?”
normal human 1 - “probably not. i’m kinda scared of him though.. he’ll probably wanna kill the girls in our class or some shit. i don’t even know those guys are crazy. did you know they call women “foids”? ”
normal human 2- “ew”

a person who is basically incapable of finding love, largely due to treating women like shit. the majority of incels believe they can’t find love because they are ugly, while it is usually because they have no respect for women. most incels are pieces of shit and all around hated by individuals around them. they believe women owe them sex, yet the majority of them never lose their virginity, or lose their virginity to a cheap hooker with a crusty pussy and crabs. should you meet an incel in real life, it is advised that you run to safety in order to avoid becoming one yourself.
Ryan: what was the name of your last boyfriend again?
Lilia: Oh, Vincent? He was SUCH an incel. INSANELY ugly too.
