Happy belated Valentine's Day, President's Day, and new episode of INCEL day, world. Today on Part 2 of Disaggregation: A Field Guide for the New Experts, Naama concludes her summary with an aggregation of the new interest in the incel community by going through the latest headlines (of which there have been at least 15 now, since 2020), the academic studies, and the policy pieces, and checks back in with terrorism expert, Jesse Morton, for his take on the way it’s all being handled. She also checks in with Frail Pale Stale Male to complete her disaggregation, by adding a new category to the list.

After a quick summary of the latest news in the incelosphere (of which there’s been plenty, and which will be covered in detail over a two-part episode starting next week), Naama sits down with radio host Mumia Obsidian Ali (@ObsidianFiles), a cultural commentator on the black manosphere, and new dating guru “for the non-select male.” Naama has been a regular guest on Obsidian Radio Daily, and today takes him up on his challenge: “Send your incels over to me.” We need some levity and some encouragement in this trying time, and the conversation provides it, despite touching on many sensitive issues.

Incel Trailer (60 second version)
Chads and Stacys, and red pills and black pills, and incels and normies and cucks, oh my. Maybe you’ve heard these words before and wondered what they meant. Just beneath the boundaries of polite society, is an entire world that most of us will never even see: the shadow world of the involuntary celibate community, where young men from across the globe find each other... for better or worse. Are you game? I’m Naama Kates, the host and creator of INCEL, and this podcast is an excavation. We go deep, and sometimes dark. We meet some incredible people. But you will not leave this journey the same person you were before you started. So be forewarned. Listen to INCEL on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

17: Perma-banned/Disengagement
This week on INCEL, Naama talks to Reggie (RegisteredUser), a 19 year old engineering student from the from the UK, who was recently permanently banned from the forum, after multiple warnings, because, honestly, he was just kind of over it??? Reggie’s account is an example of “disengagement,” which differs from deradicalization in that it entails the cessation of group involvement, rather than a complete alteration in worldview.—————————————————————— INCEL is created and produced by Naama Kates for Crawlspace Media.

15: The Chadfishing Experiment, w/ Pinky Culture (& Catfishman).
On this cold winter day, Naama serves up a dose of blackpill, as per popular demand, by “chadfishing”: the practice of creating fake dating app profiles (generally with photos of classically attractive men, or “Chads”) in order to trick people (generally women) seeking romantic or sexual connections. It’s basically catfishing, but the purpose is to expose or understand the different treatment toward would-be suitors based on physical appearance. Traditional chadfishing has been done enough, so Naama creates three other profiles for INCEL: one female, one male in his late 30s, and one in his early 20s, on several different dating apps. Incel YouTuber Pinky (@pinkyculture) explains a bit about chadfishing, and we hear a little from Catfishman, whose interview was recorded months ago and seemed destined for the cutting room floor until this week's topic came up again... Enjoy this slightly sour, refreshing treat. Next week on INCEL, Naama speaks to Ken Reidy, the author of the study "Benevolent Radicalization." P.S.

Jolivet, author of the new book “Society Kills Men.” Ken is a husband, father, and 20 year veteran of the US Air Force, whose book addresses some of the implications of contemporary society for young men, and the grievances shared by many incels and members of the manosphere... which leaves her wondering if she’s radicalizing herself??? ————————————————————— Find out more about Kenneth T.

Over the past few weeks, Naama and guests have grappled with the question: what happens to incels when they “ascend” or simply decide to leave the community? How do they take that leap? And then adjust to life without their former friends, their beliefs, and their “second home,” for a strange new world?

6: Gone ER.
Elliott Rodger, "the supreme gentleman," committed a heinous act of domestic terror in Isla Vista, California in 2014, earning the nonstop attention of media, and an ironic martyrdom in the incelosphere, to the point that "going ER" has become a meme. In this episode of INCEL, Naama examines his downfall and pathway to intended violence with his manifesto- a primary source revealing his cognitive processes.   —————————————————————  She follows this story by detailing each incel or incel-adjacent massacre that followed in the years to come, most of whom were "copycats," who attributed Rodger in some way. Is this community a radicalization vector? Why is this happening? We can't stop it if we refuse to ask that question. ————————————————————— INCEL is created and produced by Naama Kates for Crawlspace Media.
