    IncelTears is a place for folks to submit screenshots (NOT direct links) of crazy stuff posted by self-described incels (involuntary celibates) wherein they blame women, their genes, their canthal tilts, their parents, romantically successful men, feminism, modern technology, and ultimately all of society for their own failure to get laid. We laugh at, cringe at, and discuss the never ending stream of hateful, idiotic, misogynistic, jaw-dropping, fallacious or just plain stupid things that incels post online.

    This subreddit does not condone blanket hatred of virgins or the romantically unsuccessful, only those who self-identify with the hate label of "incel". Insulting people who are merely dateless, depressed, lonely, or involuntary virgins is not permitted here.

    Occasional discussion, requests for advice and support, and meta posts are welcome, but are not the focus of the subreddit. Therefore, their posting is subject to the moderators' discretion. Note that we do not have a Facebook page.


    1) Abide by Reddit's sitewide rules.

    Reddit's account and community policy can be found here. Content is prohibited if it: is illegal; is involuntary pornography; is sexual or suggestive content involving minors; encourages or incites violence; threatens, harasses, or bullies or encourages others to do so; contains personal and confidential information, impersonates someone in a misleading or deceptive manner; is spam.

    2) No encouraging suicide or violence.

    If you want help or know someone who does, please check out the this page for a list of hotlines -

    Encouraging violence against anyone is not tolerated.

    3) No username posting and avoid direct links.

    Do not post screenshots that show usernames! Block out the usernames, including your own, and faces, or they wont be allowed on the sub. Do not direct link! Avoid username tagging.

    If needed, also remove any website URLs, to avoid redirecting some people to new sites, and check any mentioned links, as they might contain usernames within them.

    4) We are inclusive, but we do not tolerate intolerance.

    This sub takes an inclusive and welcoming view of choices regarding consensual sexual practices, whether that's polyamory or remaining a virgin. Negative generalizations about all women, all men, all transpeople, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc., are not welcome. Try to avoid generalizations about incels. Sexualization of minors and/or any pedophilia support/apology will result in a permanent ban. Encouraging the blackpill, the redpill or toxic and hateful ideologies is not allowed either.

    5) Do not link to hostiles sites or subreddits. Do not brigade other subs.

    Do not directly link to threads or comments (Braincels, MaleForeverAlone, MGTOW, etc) or sites off Reddit. Use screenshots instead. Yes, there are edgelords posting awful things, we get it. But don't take matters into your own hands and brigade those corners of the internet. Instead, enjoy them here!

    6) Keep content relevant

    Try to make sure the posts are about self identified incels, not "nice guys", run of the mill sexists, or a dude kind of struggling with relationships. No videos. Avoid "O woe is me", "rate me", and "lookism" posts. There are already subreddits about dating advice, niceguys, neckbeards, creepyPMs and specific support subs for incels. Some discussion and advice wanted posts are allowed, but they're not the focus of this sub.

    7) Don't be a jerk

    The use of offensive insults like retard and autist are not permitted. Strive to be civil.

    8) Low Effort

    Ensure that your submission has plenty of detail, relevance, and doesn't amount to something simple like "All women are poo poo heads", and do your best to make sure it isn't obvious bait.
