Why do people constantly misuse the term incel?

worldscolide
So a little bit ago i asked a question about respect and being a working man, And one of the commenters was stupid enough to call me an incel.. For those that know me, i am Married.. By definition alone, i cannot be an incel. I honestly think that people like to get snarky and pick at anything they can grasp at for insults, and incel happens to be a trendy insult.. When in reality it makes the person using it look extremely stupid.. Attached is the original question.. you will see his comment in there..

Incels (/ˈɪnsɛlz/ IN-selz), a portmanteau of "involuntary celibates", are members of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one.[1][2][3] Discussions in incel forums are often characterized by resentment, misogyny, misanthropy, self-pity and self-loathing, racism, a sense of entitlement to sex, and the endorsement of violence against sexually active people.[14] The American nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) described the subculture as "part of the online male supremacist ecosystem" that is included in their list of hate groups.[15][16] Incels are mostly male and heterosexual,[10][12][17] and many sources report that incels are predominantly white.[18][19][20][21] Estimates of the overall size of the subculture vary greatly, ranging from thousands to hundreds of thousands.[22][23]

Why do some people have no respect for a working man any more?
