Lookism.net is an looksmax forum that was created in 2015. Some argue it is part of the incelosphere, but it’s mostly just a troll board. It started sort-of self-identifying as an incel forum in 2017.
Move from sluthate
Around June 2015 a sluthate user created lookism.net after sluthate.com suffered down time for a few days. The admin’s name on lookism.net was/is “Victory”. Many users migrated to lookism.net’s better server. Lookism.net is a member of the PSL forums.
Reasoning users moved from sluthate
About a year after Sluthate was created, users were complaining about it’s name, server issues, very slow loading times, the forum not banning pedo talk, and no limit on signature size. According to eggman, male models he talked to online said they browsed lookism.net as they were curious how they were talked about and how they stacked up relative to other male models.

Lookism.net is mostly known as a trolling board, one famous troll being a “virgin” below named “Orb”, who was from bodybuilding.com’s misc board liked to fuck with the forum.
Sluthate was renamed redpilltalk.com in December of 2015 to fix the name issue, despite the forum preferring the name “incel rage”. By this point lookism.net was becoming relatively big.
As of October 2019, the forum had been vandalised by Josh (Super Moderator) in conjunction with Zesto/ZestoHot/Mafia/Mafia LT, and every thread was deleted on the board, it is unknown at present time the site may be recovered. This event coincidented with the deletion of many incel subreddits on Reddit. This was done in an attempt to hijack the userbase and migrate them to a website under his control.
Move from PHPbb to Xenforo
In late 2019, Lookism.net moved to Xenforo in an attempt to keep pase with competitors and provide a more familiar user experience.
