I used the term "MRAs" on Facebook recently (coincidentally referring to an incident on this board) and one of my friends was like "I had to look that up and it reminded me of learning about incels".

Come to think of it, I no longer have any idea how I learned about incels in the first place. :shock:

Unsurprisingly I learned about them from Reddit, which is full of neckbeards.

Ackshyually MRAs are the good guys and feminism is an evil matriarchal conspiracy, and allow me to explain why in this 10,000 word essay.

I think I learned about MRAs here on UL, and incels popped up down in that rabbit hole.

Yesterday my boyfriend used the abbreviation PUA and I could not remember what it's an abbreviation for. That's how isolated I have become from all this stuff since having a kid. Then today I came to Unilang and got reminded what those words in PUA are. :lol:

I have a vague feeling that might be what happened to me, too, except I can't figure out for the life of me how that happened.

I forgot and had to look up PUA when I saw this post earlier. :P

I feel like PUAs were a 00s trend. I haven't heard much about them for years since they've been overshadowed by incels, who hate them.

Do all incels hate them? I thought it was only some.

I don't know about all, but I was told that on the whole incels don't like them because they believe that PUA techniques are useless to incels, because they are biologically unable to pick up women for reasons. Therefore learning and trying to use them is nothing but "cope".

I learned only very recently about Dina Ali Lasloom, a Saudi woman (in case you didn't know, either) who attempted over two years ago to escape her family and seek asylum in Australia only for her family to force her to return to Saudi Arabia. This seems to be one of the highest-profile cases as far as women's rights (or even human rights) in Saudi Arabia are concerned. However, when I see some of these criticisms from non-Saudis, they complain that Western feminists aren't speaking out against this sort of treatment of Saudi citizens. Why do they say this when millions of people all around the world were doing just that, all kinds of international news agencies were reporting on it, etc.? So far, I haven't been able to tell whether they have some kind of agenda or are just ignorant or both or what.
