Reddit bans 'involuntarily celibate' community

Social website Reddit has banned a controversial subreddit dedicated to "involuntarily celibate" men, known as incels.
The 41,000-strong community was ostensibly a support group for men who wanted to have sex, but found themselves unable to form romantic relationships.
Over time, the group became a repository of misogynistic abuse, rape threats and febrile discussion of "Chads" - men apparently not afflicted by incels' sexual insufficiency.
The move comes within three weeks of the website banning several other subsections, mostly affiliated with the extreme right, for hosting "violent content".
Incels subreddit:
From Tuesday, users attempting to access the subreddit - a self-contained community on the Reddit website - were instead faced with a generic message announcing the ban.
"This community has been banned," the message states.
"This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, our site-wide rules regarding violent content."
In the past week, threads featuring on the subreddit have ranged from overtly misogynistic, to violent, to self-pitying.
"A reminder that no female has ever looked at you and thought you were attractive," proclaims one thread, a few lines above another declaring "women are horrible human beings in every aspect of life".
In October, one member of the incel group reportedly impersonated a woman to ask another subreddit dedicated to legal advice "how rapists get caught".



Some posts on the forum have glorified Elliot Rodger, a man who killed six people in a 2014 California rampage after publishing a "manifesto" detailing his hatred of women.

It is unclear if there was a specific incident which led to the subreddit's closure, but the ban came after some users discussed castrating another user's roommate.
