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. Furthermore, with regards to any actual incels listed on this wiki, inceldom is a life circumstance, not an insult or a movement/community.

Christopher Harper-Mercer (July 26, 1989 – October 1, 2015) was a clinically diagnosed autistic, involuntarily celibate shooter. He was reported to have tragically killed 10 people in Umpqua Community College, in Oregon, including himself. In Chris' manifesto he expressed anger at not having a girlfriend and expressed a high degree of irrational thought (such as the idea that he is entitled a girlfriend). He wrote:

And here I am, 26, with no friends, no job, no girlfriend, a virgin. I long ago realized that society likes to deny people like me these things. People who are elite, people who stand with the gods. People like Elliot Rodger, Vester Flanagan, The Columbine kids, Adam Lanza, and Seung Cho.

/r9k/ thread[edit]

The night before the alleged shooting, there was a thread on r9k[1] posted saying:

Some of you guys are alright. Don't go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest.

happening thread will be posted tomorrow morning

so long space robots

Some believe that Christopher Harper-Mercer was the OP of this thread. The phrase "some of you guys are alright" soon became a meme on /r9k/ and the various forums with overlap with the userbase of /r9k/ or possessing a similar forum culture.

Favorite music and food[edit]

In his manifesto Chrisopher mentioned Marilyn Manson as his favorite artist and soymilk as his favorite drink.
