The subreddit is the largest community in the incelosphere, consisting of a subscriber base that is numerically into the 5 digits. Its content covers a wide variety of topics. Some threads ask for advice regarding inceldom or depression. There is also general “blackpill” demotivational content. Some users present studies related to virginity or sexual attraction. Even though it is technically the largest incel forum, it receives little media attention compared to other forums such as incels.co and the now defunct Braincels.
One of the two original editors of this site and incels dot wiki was notably a heavy user of this subreddit.
The userbase as of 2020 consists mainly of “blackpill” proponents. Since the major blackpill boards were banned from Reddit, hateful blackpillers started taking up shop in this “withouthate” sub, often posting veiled anti-racemixing posts and other vaguely alt-right content. They are usually unwelcome though, and are frequently banned, even though they still manage to raid and concern troll most threads. Often highly upvoted posts will be flooded with blackpill trolls, in a weird juxtaposition to the upvote count of the thread itself, suggesting the blackpillers are a loud majority there.
There are currently around 25,000 subscribers to r/IncelsWithoutHate as of 2020.
