Ep. 48: My Journey into Incels (Involuntary Celibates): Naama Kates
Naama Kates is an actress and musician best known for her work with extremists, and, in particular, incels. For the unaware, an incel is an involuntary celibate, which refers – but is not limited - to a man who feels that he is either physically or mentally too unattractive to find a mate of the female variety. While many of these men are simply depressed or lonely, when they come together through online communities, it can sometimes result in something of a toxic environment.
As I mention at the end, I'm currently writing a book about secrets, and would appreciate your entirely anonymous contribution to my survey about secrets at home (sex, masturbation, politics, friends etc). I've also posted the link on my Twitter and Insta pages, in case you can't click this: https://forms.gle/rz159GxRgyZWCMJn6 Naama Links: Incel Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/incel/id1469915971 Twitter: https://twitter.com/naamakates
