aka "involuntarily celibate", a person (usually male) who has a horrible personality and treats women like sexual objects and thinks his lack of a sex life comes from being "ugly" when its really just his blatant sexism and terrible attitude. incels have little to no self awareness; even when they see other "ugly" men with girlfriends, they consider these men to be tricksters who have somehow beat the system and can get women despite being cursed with unattractiveness (in other words, theyre respectful to women and women are attracted to their personalities, but incels cant comprehend such a phenomenon). they believe that women owe them sex, and many of the more extreme incels like to spend time in incel communities on the internet coming up with ways to make women have sex with them (often involving genocide of people of color, genocide of "Chads" (men who have sex), taking rights away from women, raping them, having sex with women's dead bodies, and other horrid, disgusting things. they cant understand that that is PRECISELY why women want nothing to do with them).
I'm pretty sure Ryan is an incel. Yesterday he made a facebook post about how all women are shallow and exist to torture men by "denying" them sex, as if sex is something people "deserve", and not a privilege given by potential sexual partners that should be respected.

"Involuntary Celibate". A frustrated virgin who feels as if the world owes them sex. A self-described 'incel' is highly likely to blame their virginity on the other 6,999,999,999 people on the planet rather than consider that maybe the problem lies inward.
Mark's started calling himself an 'incel', because he can't get laid.

The writer of the following document (grammatical & spelling errors included) is the clearest example of INCEL that ever lived;
The INCEL in question wrote the following;

Single white male 50, seeking single white, Asian, Hispanic, Europeen or Mid Eastern female legal age to thirty to be my wife and have my children.
Prefer a brunnette or red head
Petite under 140 lbs
5’ to 5’9” tall
No drug addicts
No whores
No sluts,(mY idea of a slut is any woman by the age of thirty who has more than 5 sexual partners).
I will not have any female who has had sexual relashions with a black person, no exceptions.
Preferably a virgin
She will stay by my side or at home, even when I am at work, if she wishes to work she can do so from home, or by my side.
If she wishes to go out she will do so with me by her side, I will not put up with a so called girls night out where she can fuck around on me…she will have to earn my trust…
She will only have female friends
She will have no male friends
I will not tolerate being lied to or cheated on
She will be given a lie detector test, every six months till she earns my trust..
She will do as asked, when asked
She can reach me at: wifehunter31@GMAIL.COM

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.

A no-gettin-laid motherfucker.
That guy thinks he's an incel because he can't get laid, but really he's just a narcissistic, sexist, asshole with no redeeming personality traits.
