By including this public figure on this wiki, we are not necessarily implying they are incel (involuntarily celibate) or are in any way associated with incels.

Ben Moynihan was a clinically autistic teenager who could not lose his virginity, and was therefore involuntarily celibate. He was sentenced to 21 years for attempted murder of three women.[1] Ben left letters to the police in the run-up to his crimes. The letters said such things as:

“When women won’t talk to you, it’s heartbreaking, why are they fussy with men nowadays,” [...]
“I think every girl is a type of slut…they do not give boys like us a chance.”
—Ben Moynihan,[2]


Like other young spree shooters: Adam Lanza,[3] Elliot Rodger, and Alek Minassian, Ben suffered from an autism spectrum disorder[4] and had demonstrated a “gross lack of empathy”.
