    I'm not watching it (honestly - I'd happily confess if I was), but this is him? Seems to be going down well.

    I think he garnered lots of sympathy at the start as no girl was interested in him as he is incredibly dull, but a pretty lovely person. I just think he sticks out like a sore thumb, and his efforts really make me cringe.

    He’s AWFUL. I’d disown him regardless.

    The incel thing makes me want to never go on the internet again. What a grubby bunch of terrible little boys.

    Involuntary celibates. A community of guys who can't get laid, with some resorting to violence/murder, etc.

    Basically a group of emotionally stunted “men” who hate women because they believe they are being denied sex they are entitled to.

    Usually call themselves “nice guys”.

    Not really. They are unable to have intercourse with anyone which leads to anger.

    I don’t get it. Why is this getting talked about in the Love Island thread? The boys in the show do not meet that criteria whatsoever.

    Quite the opposite. Boys with no social skills who think women should be flocking to them to GIVE them sex. When the world doesn't reward them with endless shagging they bitch about it to other incels and then go on a killing spree (in extreme circumstances)

    Terrible cunts.

    Because one of them is being hailed as an incel hero.

    Aside, programs like this creating ridiculous ideals and standards is partly to blame. We all know its just a gameshow, but so many thick cunts and impressionable young kids don't. They see these steroid boys and collagen girls waltz into a luxury villa and shack up with the nearest bit of pretty meat and think thats what life should be like.

    When it doesn't work that way you get incels/kids getting fillers/eating disorders and the rest. Its bullshit.

    I'm only venting on here because I've been kicked out of the front room for doing so in my house one hour a night. HMPH.

    Anyway back to Megan. Have we seen the before and after shots of her? 25k apparently spent on plastic surgery. GOOD plastic surgery I say.

    Well I guess there's no helping the TERMINALLY THICK Rita, but if Ron can create a bit of cognitive dissonance in just a few people, he's proved himself as a force for good.

    Again, as I say do you think we actually care? Yes these people are horrible pricks of the highest order. Is this going to stop us watching? NO.

    All publicity is good publicity lollz. :disco:

    I don't think it makes much difference either way to people who do watch. But hopefully it starts a conversation, because I do think it's a nasty, pernicious show which shouldn't go unchecked.

    It's that level of apathy that makes it worse. Ergh. I'd join ISIS to behead the lot of them*

    How extreme.

    I mean if Lolly actually watched it he would see what a pile of shit the article he posted actually is.

    Can I ask why Jivafox is liking the anti Love Island posts when he is clearly an avid viewer of the show? :D

    Which parts (or indeed perhaps all of it) don't you agree with specifically?

    You're right, I've not seen anything more than 10 minutes total across three weeks or however long it has been on. I am interested in it as a cultural behemoth rather than anything else, even with the obvious reservations I have against it.

    Alex (one of the nicer, if possibly somewhat dullest boys) is so far from being incel it is unreal. I can’t see how he feels he deserves sex? I would say if push came to shove he would be somewhat frigid if anyone wanted to put it on him. He is one of the most popular with the girls and boys in the house as he genuinely seems quite sweet. He has tried to get with countless girls in the villa, but they have showed little interest as he is too sensible, and reserved for them. As I said earlier in the thread he is like a fish out of water, and is not suited to the show whatsoever.

    I would say Adam possibly falls in to the criteria.

    You're missing the point. Too much Love Island is rotting your brain.

    Oh Rita love, let’s try again: incels are men who want to have sex but no woman will agree to have it with them. Adam is not one.

    Oh CALM YOURSELF. It is no worst than the Big Brother genre. Glamour models/strippers/body builders etc. Britain thrive on reality TV. Not everyone’s bag, fair enough. To try and come in and “educate the eternally thick” as @lolly so eloquently put it is tiresome and falling on deaf ears. It is mindless crap some of us enjoy to watch for an hour at 9pm, we do not need The Anti Love Island Crusade coming in telling us things we already know, and clearly don’t give a flying fuck about.

    Dub, darling. That is not how it was explained to me earlier in the thread. @jivafox stated above that incel refers to men that hate women as they do not get the sex they feel they deserve. I am sure you are in agreement that is NOT Alex.

    It IS worse than Big Brother though. How many young girls are watching this program and thinking this is how normal people act. It's promoting unrealistic body images, its encouraging misogyny and its fueling a culture that champions fucking idiots for being fucking idiots. Its no wonder some poor cunt from the first series topped herself.
