A large group of whining men have had their internet message board/playground taken away from them.
Discussion website Reddit has decided to remove the ‘support group’ for ‘Incels’ (which stands for ‘involuntarily celibate’, I’ve just discovered), after evidence emerged that some users were advocating rape and indulging in general tender-headed, shabby misogyny.
The board’s 40,000 frenzied morons patronised such posts as ‘reasons why women are the embodiment of evil’ and ‘all women are sluts’. Delightful stuff.
It’s proved too much for Reddit, however, which has brought an end to the vicious nonsense in line with a new policy to ban drivel that ‘encourages, glorifies, incites or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or group of people’. Good move.
According to the disconsolate souls in the Incel community, women are ‘femoids’ that are…guilty of just about every crime imaginable.
I had a root around the ashes of the message board, so you don’t have to (and, believe me, you don’t want to), and my conclusion is that these, I suppose you could call them ‘men’ have taken sulking to such depths of unspeakable stupidity and ghoulishness that it’s verging on an art form.
The internet, eh? Bringing people together!
