Today’s episode is a follow-up to the topic we started discussing last week, that first came my way via a poignant message from a listener named Mark (@us3rn8m3_t8k3n) a self-described currycel, who suggested we further explore the role that childhood abuse, particularly in Asian cultures, might play for incels in the west. Mark agreed to get on a call and discuss these issues himself, and we had one of the most raw, honest, and insightful conversations about this theme which is so ubiquitous in the incelosphere. Reminder: a currycel is an incel of South Asian decent, while a ricecel is one of East Asian descent. As a reminder, these terms aren’t intended to be, nor considered offensive, just playfully descriptive. Trigger Warning: this episode includes frank discussion of child abuse and domestic violence. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's finally here, boyos.
