Incels and involuntary celibacy
Do you want to participate in our research about incels and involuntary celibacy?
We are looking for individuals who are 18 years old or older that identify as incel, or involuntary celibate. We would like to listen to why you identify as incel, your own life experience as incel, and how it affects you. We are also interested in your views about the incel community, the media portrayal of incels, and the critique the “movement” has received regarding potential radicalization and violence.
What does participation involve for you?
Participation involves partaking in an interview lasting between 60 to 120 minutes. The interview will be audio recorded. In addition to the main themes of the project, we will also ask short questions about your background: regarding age, gender, where you were born and about your hobbies.
Participation is voluntary and anonymous
Participation in the project is voluntary and anonymous. If you choose to participate, you can withdraw your consent at any time without giving a reason. All information about you will then be deleted. There will be no negative consequences for you if you choose not to participate or later decide to withdraw.
