Incel Forums Term Glossary

From, the largest incel encyclopedia

This glossary contains terms used in incel forums.

It's important to note that almost all these terms did not originate from incel forums, nor were most of them probably even invented by an incel. Most of these are just general internet subculture terms. This is something lost on most academics browsing this wiki, so might as well mention it. The most incel-y terms in this list came from the anti-pickup-artist culture ("PSL"), which had people of every celibacy, as well as 4chan, which also has a wide variety of people.


Suffix denoting involuntary celibate. Used in the formation of the words: gymcel, heightcel, baldcel, workcel, wristcel, etc. The stem word indicates the condition that made him incel, the activity that the incel spends to compensate for his lack of success with women, or just an incel that happen to be with the quality. For example, a baldcel is a balding man who is unattractive to women because of his hair loss. A gymcel is a man who spends his free time exercising in the hopes that a more fit body will cause him to become more attractive to women. A currycel is a South Asian male who happens to be an incel.
