The whitepill is a philosophy that promotes New Age asceticism for those it deems, "genetically inferior", to men with extremely masculine faces. SergeantIncel was the first person to heavily conceptualize the whitepill.
Sergeantincel described the whitepill as "encompassing" and mostly subscribing to the blackpill, but as a way out of the negativity usually confined to orthodox blackpill thinking.
On Dec. 18th, whitepill.org was created as a blog exploring the concept in depth.
- Understanding and acceptance of the social dynamics of society in the 21st century.
- Acceptance and minimization of sexual and romantic desires.
- Seeking of a restructure of oneself through the rediscovery of purpose (knowledge, looksmaxxing, hobbies, etc.).
Although outsiders are happy when incels (or any other depressed demographic) take the whitepill, the very fact that people take the whitepill is indicative of the unconstructive nature of that given society. When society says “go ahead and take the whitepill” it is essentially saying “suffering in silence is okay”. Because that is what the whitepill is; you manage to tolerate suffering in silence due to stoicism and ascetism.
If an involuntary celibate turns their whitepill belief (i.e. the acceptance of their social position; stoicism) into action (such as aloofness to the dating scene), then they might more befittingly be regarded as a reluctant voluntary celibate (i.e. reluctant volcel). Nonetheless, there is a certain grey area, and many do not neatly fit into a specific box.
Due to the whitepill's inherent advocacy for self-assuredness, some whitepillers choose to larp as being intentionally / voluntarily celibate (volcel), when in reality they are unintentionally / involuntarily celibate.
