No. aka "involuntarily celibate", a person (usually male) who has a horrible personality and treats women like sexual objects and thinks his lack of a sex life comes from being "ugly" when its really just his blatant sexism and terrible attitude.
Yes that is the definition, but the only problem is all virgins are labeled as that now and puts an even bigger and harder societal pressure on men to lose their virginity as fast as they can, both the people who created the movement and the feminists who blamed all virgins for the actions of a couple are at fault for making society worse

Incels are men who can't attract any women and who turns his frustration into extreme misogyny, blaming women for all his failures. They view women as some sort of alien creatures. Incels are also completely incapable of self-reflection and self-criticism. They believe in completely delusional theories about male skull structures and such, they have their own ridiculous language to categorize non-incels, and more often than not they also have bigoted opinions about stuff apart from inceldom, like racism.
Oh, and they're also ticking time bombs. Some of them went off already and took several lives. It's a community of pure hate. The thing is, I bet this started out as some sort of genuine attempt at supporting each other (because being unattractive *does* make people unhappy and that's an issue that should indeed by taken seriously), but it ended up just being a downward spiral of hateful, bitter loners who do nothing but push each other more and more into a vicious circle of hatred, bitterness, misogyny, and hopelessness. They don't support each other. They tell each other how hopeless it is and that they should give up and focus on their hatred for women and non-incel men.
Fuck them. (Not literally. Ew.)
