And the term "incel" appears to have originated among organized pickup artistry as a term for the kind of loser they purport to teach you not to be.


An article I read long ago, before incels became a moral panic placed the term as originating with a much more well meaning group. Basically some woman started an online community that was for people who couldn't find sexual partners to commiserate. It was kinda sad but harmless, as it was meant to be more "life sucks because (I am too socially awkward to date/have a medical condition that prevents me from having sex/whatever else gets in the way of having sex)" rather than "I HATE ALL THE WIMMENZ BECUZ TEHY WON"T FUCK ME!1!!"

Unfortunately, the sort of fuckstick that we now associate with the term gravitated to the group rather quickly and here we are.

I can't help but wonder who these "honorable people" are that he mentioned. Honorable people don't go into politics

"West Wing" was the name of a TV show set in an alternate universe where politicians aren't weasels.

Only politician I can think of who has had any real consequences is Blago.

Makes perfect sense now

I am still not sure what a Bugman is and whether I should be insulted if someone calls me one

I'm guessing it's something right wing extremists call anyone they think of as a left wing extremist, based on cultural cues rather than stated positions.
