Several hours after the news broke that a gunman had shot five people dead at the Capital Gazette newspaper offices in Annapolis, Maryland, but before we knew much of anything about the shooter himself, I took a look at the forums on Incels.me to see if anyone on the site was saying anything about this latest mass killing.
Incels, after all, have an almost reflexive tendency to praise or excuse anyone who kills a high enough number of the “normies” incels consider their sworn enemies, and many of them worship incel mass killer Elliot Rodger as a virtual saint.
But no one there seemed much interested in this particular killer. “[P]rolly some political kind of shit given that it’s a newspaper,” wrote someone called mutant in a not-very-busy thread on the topic, “really it’s only normals who care about left v right.”
Several hours later, we learned that the Annapolis shooter’s anger at the media — and at the Capital Gazette — had its roots in the newspaper’s coverage of his conviction for harassing a former high-school classmate on Facebook. Though she didn’t remember going to school with him, she told the paper, she tried to be nice because it seemed like he was having a rough time. But he quickly turned on her, allegedly bombarding her with threats and trying to get her fired from her job. Ultimately, the future shooter pleaded guilty to pleaded guilty to one count of harassment — and then started directing his ire at the Capital Gazette for having the gall to write about his case in a way he thought was unfair. (A court disagreed, dismissing his defamation suit against the paper.)
Well, this bit of news woke the murder fans on Incels.me right up, and soon they were hailing the Capital Gazette shooter as a new hero.
“Praise the saint,” wrote someone called JeffGoldblumInTheFly.
“When will he be canonised?” asked AfrikanCel.
“The newspaper was bullying him for being incel and Jarrod Ramos stood up to his bullies,” added incel4life. ” Jarrod Ramos is a hero.”
“Bless His Heart,” agreed doktordoom, “death to the media.”
A few of the commenters wondered if their new hero had managed to kill any “femoids” — that is, women — in his rampage.
“Did he score at least one femoid frag?” asked the aptly named evildoer.
In fact, he killed two women. “I don’t condone shootings,” noted someone called Jackson14, “but anyways looking at the victims one was a Stacy.”
This last assertion proved somewhat controversial, because the possible “Stacy” in question was a bit older than most incels consider ideal. “Maybe Stacy from 30 years ago,” grumbled Notgoingtomakeit.
“Come on man you don’t think she is hot?” Jackson14 asked.
Not everyone on the incels.me forums considers Ramos a saint, though. Someone called AR15 was unimpressed with his body count. “Weak score tbh,” he sniffed.
Others were unimpressed with his looks. “Homeboy look like a Lamb Of God tribute act ,” wrote one. “He legit looks like an egg.” added another.
Somehow I suspect that all the “sex redistribution” in the world wouldn’t transform any of these guys into actual decent people. It would just put more women at risk.
What I hate is when the 8s and 9s smile at me because I know one wrong move and there’s a big old lawsuit coming my way.
What the heck is an incel?
I am unfortunately celibate also....
I’ve seen plenty of men who were downright homely, married to very attractive women. Now, if I were cynical, I would say they married for money, and maybe some of them did. But as a woman, I can tell you that we find men with a great sense of humor, or highly intelligent, or an obviously kind soul, to be very attractive, no matter what their looks are. Of course we’re attracted to successful men, but I don’t mean necessarily FINANCIALLY successful. A guy who’s successful at having a great personality, or a great thinker, etc., is an attractive kind of guy. A very wise senior girl in high school once told me, “My boyfriend is as homely as a mud fence, but I couldn’t care less; he’s a great guy, and that’s what counts.”
I’ve been around since the old days, and I’ve never thought of “confirmed bachelor” or “spinster”, as code words for homosexuals. For example, I recall, both C.S. Lewis and his brother, were confirmed bachelors, until Lewis married his wife, whom he initially married so she could remain in England, but fell in love with her after they married. I read his autobiography, and he touched on homosexual behavior in boarding school, but affirmed he never indulged in it, or felt any interest in it, himself. I don’t think he was lying. Some people really are sort of asexual, or some are too socially awkward to get involved with anyone.
Gosh, that’s jaded. I guess you just have to give up, then?
Believe me, I’ve done some asks recently, but no takers so far.
Don’t give up! Find out what your best quality is, and show it. Women are also attracted to self-confident men.
P.S. In my experience, the only difference between American Conservative women and American Liberal women is their politics....
If my wife weren't who she is, I'd have nothing to do with any of them.
Good for you! It’s what’s inside that counts.
