(Not) A Song About Incels

From IncelWiki.org, the incel encyclopedia

(Not) A Song About Incels is a song by Jreg that presents a nuanced view of involuntary celibates, including both critical and sympathetic parts regarding certain incel and incelphobic communities.

At first it may seem to promote an incelphobic agenda, however, the song then makes a narrative twist, in which it is revealed that the song was actually intended to mock incelphobic communities and their mentalities regarding incels.

The video does criticize incel people who follow blackpill ideology but does not to appear to consider all incel people as being blackpilled.

Lyrics[edit]

[Part 1]
All women are whores cause they won't sleep with me
No, my philosophy's not contradictory[note 1]
Women are female, just feral beasts]]
All women are like that, unlike me
While women whore it up all acting the same
I parrot talking points with my superior brain[note 2]
I figured out the social game
The Chads and Stacys are to blame
Not the fact that I'm insane and haven't showered in eight days

[Part 2]
Hey guys, Jreg here
Isn't it fun drinking inceltears
I hope they kill themselves
Because they're ugly
Don't they know they can hit the gym and be just like me
A couple of squats, determination, exercise
All of that will get them
My exact jawline
Mocking them makes me feel superior
Because I'm attractive
And as a result I fuck
They're easy to mock
Cause I'm 6"2'
I have high cheek bones
And my parents raised me good
Every time I make someone with no will to live feel worse
I just laugh, ha ha ha
Please put that person in a hearse
Some people think that mocking individual incels
Is like mocking a cancer patient for being riddled with cancer cells
Instead of dehumanizing people who are suicidally depressed
Whose one desire is to find someone to kiss and love and hold in this bleak and scary world
We should turn maybe instead to the broader social reasons why this shits in people's heads
But the internet rewards sociopathy
So people can share with their friends and family
Direct people with no will to live
So fuck it, let's dehumanize them

[Outro]
Doobeddydoo I'm an incel person x2
Doobeddydoo I've got poor mental health
Doobeddydoo I want to kill myself
Doobeddydoo And you aren't much help

Analysis[edit]

The first part is sung by a stereotypical misogynistic incel forum user. This part of the song is intended to critique incels by arguing that their philosophy is contradictory or silly. In reality, incel people don't have a philosophy, since "involuntary celibacy" is an objective life circumstance, like poverty, not a specific internet community. However, there are certain philosophies that are popular in internet incel communities, most notably the blackpill. This however is intentional from the narrator, to illustrate such ignorance by communities against incel people who don't actually understand real incel ideas, not to reflect all ACTUAL beliefs.

The second part of the song is where the rug is pulled out from under the viewer, and it is revealed that the character who was allegedly an "incel", was actually an intentional strawman played by a Chad. The chad goes on to chadsplain to incel people that all they have to do to ascend is to hit the gym. Jreg also states that he enjoys mocking incel people in order to feel better about himself, and that he wishes harm upon incels. He also explains that instead of trying to help incels, many incel people often are often pushed to ideologies such as the Blackpill due to a lack of love and respect by society. This part of the song is obviously meant to be sympathetic to incels, and to criticize the attitudes of incelphobic communities such as inceltears.

Videos like these arguably could be made with the intent to spoon-feed communities like breadtube about the situation incel and how incel people often are misunderstood and bullied by society for their loneliness.

Criticism[edit]

Many Anti-Incels and Breadtubers often have been upset that Jrough has shown any sympathy towards incels, often arguing the false narrative that all incel people are Blackpill psychopaths, and that any criticism of communities which fight against incel people are therefore means he supports such violence.

Many Incels may unintentionally be stricken the wrong way due to how it allegedly perceives incel people in the first act, and how such stereotypes often are made unironically by incelphobic communities and thus, incel people may find it hard to tell if Jr. Greg actually believes such ideas of incel people or is instead making fun of incelphobic mentalities.

  1. The opening line is supposed to expose a contradiction, because not sleeping with someone is the opposite of promiscuous ("whore-like") behavior. In reality, though, female promiscuity is often targeted toward only the most attractive men.
  2. This refers to the fact that blackpill-supporting incel people often repeat the same tired arguments about how women are hypergamous, only care about looks, money, and status, and so on.
