This week we are discussing a relatively recent internet phenomenon of folks who call themselves “Involuntarily Celibate” or “Incels.” They are a loosely cohesive group who have gained traction on social media an sites like Reddit and 4Chan.
They are virtually all men and spend their online time discussing why women are to blame with their inability to find companionship. Often very alt-right and misogynistic, they have gained a very negative reputation.
Dr. Richard Schloss is psychiatrist from New York and and member of the Board of Directors of Long Island Atheists, as well as a member of New York City Skeptics. He joins us to give a professional perspective on those who call themselves “Incels.”
It promises to be an interesting discussion!
