It’s not news that internet Nazis have been trying to recruit incels to their cause — after all, like the Nazis, incels are angry, unhappy, hateful. All of which makes them perfect fodder for the internet Nazi army.
Of course, the more incels they recruit, the more the Nazis and incels become alike; it’s getting ever more difficult to tell them apart.
Consider a recent Daily Stormer post with the convoluted title “Roasties are Trying to Feel Good About Their Disgusting Protruding Labia So They Can Have More Sex,” which could just as easily have been posted to a site like Incels.is without changing a word.
“Roasties,” in incel argot, refers to women who’ve had so much sex that their vulvas start to look like roast beef. Never mind that this isn’t really a thing; whether a woman has an “innie” or an “outie” vulva has nothing to do with how much sex they have. (Which incels and Nazis might realize if thy ever encountered any vulvas in the wild.) But incels (and The Daily Stormer) do love their “roastie” memes.
The Daily Stormer shitpost, written by someone calling himself Elvis Dunderhoff, consists of a cut-and-pasted Guardian article on “vulva anxiety,” with a few short paragraphs of, well, commentary that betray poor Elvis’ utter ignorance on all things related to vulvas.
The Guardian article, which Elvis quotes almost in full, is worth a read itself. It looks at cis women’s widespread worries about the aesthetics of their vulvas — especially among women who think they’re “abnormal” for having inner labia that stick out. In fact, as the article makes clear, most cis women have labia “outies.” And it has nothing to do with how much or how little sex they have.
That doesn’t stop Elvis — who doesn’t seem to have read the article he’s cut and pasted into his post — from declaring that
Women used to claim that the “roastie” meme – which claimed that after women have too much sex their vaginas look like roast beef sandwiches – wasn’t true.
Now, they’re admitting that it is true, and are having plastic surgery.
Women are disgusting.
Elvis, like many incels, seems to be stuck at a “girls have cooties” level of sexual understanding.
It is true that cis women are increasingly turning to plastic surgery to trim back their labia minora. But the whole point of the article is that there’s also
a nascent movement … fighting back. It is rejecting the whole idea of genital perfection and reclaiming difference as part of being human … .
But Elvis is more interested in the women who haven’t embraced their vulvar “differences” and who simply feel shitty about how they look down there. Elvis quotes a portion of the article about women who feel this shame:
What is the impact of such a negative self-image combined with shame? [Psychologist Cabby] Laffy suggests it is that you will get less from sex. She uses a food analogy to make the point: “If you’ve got shame and difficulty connected around foods, it’s hard to take pleasure in them.”
That’s why women should be made to feel bad about the appearance of their genitals.
The more labia-shamed they are, the less likely they are to enjoy sex. The less they enjoy sex, the less likely they are to engage in casual sex with strangers.
Translation: “If I’m not getting any, no one should be getting any.”
These men are like overgrown children. No wonder they have so much trouble recruiting women to their cause.
