James Jordan, thanks for your comments and to be honest, I just learned that term myself, as I was searching for a way to describe men who were not quite incels but had a lot of those same things going on, and the same resulting anger. Your response to what others term rejection is very healthy and indicates that for some reason you were able to eventually make that leap to such a good place about it. Do you have any sense of what inner resource or external support allowed you to do that? One of the things that most interest me is how are some men able to transcend and some aren’t.
