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.

Dr. Edwin Fuller Torrey is in charge of the largest advocacy group for promoting a brain-disease-centered model of human actions, as well as the largest advocate of forced psychiatry.

His ideology harms incels[edit]

In some sense he is the ultimate villain with regard to society's treatment of incels. Incels have a condition that is caused (mostly) by society, but incels are often forced into therapy to self-correct the symptoms of inceldom. The idea being that incels have a brain disease (depression, schizophrenia, and/or social anxiety disorder) rather than being part of the collateral damage of the destruction of local communities and arranged partnerships.

Microbial theory of mental disorders[edit]

Edwin Torrey deviates from the scientific consensus, in that he believes that the largest causative factor of mental disorders is microbial infection. He furthermore posits that the culpable microbe (Toxoplasma gondii – Section "Immune response and behavior alterations") is spread to humans mainly by cats. Toxoplasma gondii lives in the intestines of cats, and passes from the intestines into the cats' feces, from which it can spread to humans and to other animals. Part of the immune response to toxoplasma gondii infection acts as a contributing factor to schizophrenia, but genetics is the largest causal factor of schizophrenia.
