incel

A contraction of the phrase "involuntarily celibate," a label self-applied by members of the online subculture of men (mostly young, white, and heterosexual) who claim to be unable to find or attract women as romantic partners and post consequent expressions of self-pity, entitlement, and misogyny, as well sometimes promoting or condoning violence toward others (especially those who are sexually active). Elliot Rodger, perpetrator of the 2014 Isla Vista killings, has been celebrated by some incels as a hero.
