When are incels not angry about everything? I think that it's part of the condition. If you're arrogant enough to think that women should be throwing themselves at you, for the privilege of manipulating your genitals, you're probably arrogant enough to think you could fix anything "if they would just give me a chance", and that mindset creates a lot of anger, about everything.

How to get laid:

1) Get on tinder
2) Swipe right on everyone
3) Eventually get a match
4) Say "want to hook up"
5) Get yes or no response
6a) If yes : enjoy hook up
6b) If no : return to 1

If you're attractive and/or social, you may have better options than tinder, or the ability to be more choosy.

I mean, the coverage is fine? It's easy to ignore for me anyway. The only thing that really bugs me is some lists of results don't define the league, and since the Prem ladies and Men share the same name it's occasionally confusing. ESPN does this especially. Since I don't follow far more sports than I do follow, it's perfectly easy for me to pay no attention to media coverage. I can ignore the NBA and NFL with no issue and they are rammed down my throat far more than women's football.

Much better fundamentals.

seriously though, on the scope of sports, womens soccer is top notch. They're ballers, they knock the shiat out of each other.  its good stuff!

I'm aware that some people seem to only get something resembling joy when they hurt others.  I'm still astounded by it.

They're probably just lacking in fatherly guidance.  Maybe an evening at the Blue Oyster will help them find a better role model.

This issue will resolve itself in the next decade. And the USWNT superfans aren't nearly as creepy as they used to be already. When I ran a sportsbar the dudes that would come out for the USWNT were sketchy as fark. They had an encyclopedic knowledge of the women's game from the preps on up, but clearly didn't follow men's football at all.  Unusually invested IMO. I'm sure those dudes are still around but in the background where they belong.

I've always heard that is true and noted soccer expert that I am, in my totally not limited experience I'd say it is generally so. There is still some embarrassing stuff going on but nowhere near the level of those prima-donna pussies who play for the men's teams. The women seem to have far more respect for themselves than their counterparts which is why it is more watchable in my book.

Gods does this remind me of the time I was asked by friends to do a panel at the local anime convention on how to attract people at conventions, since apparently so many have trouble with this despite going to said conventions to hook up, get a date, meet your future SO, etc.  I didn't think I could go on for an hour about basic grooming that everyone should know and do:

shower 2x a day (con funk is bad)
wash hair in the morning, shampoo + conditioner
make use of the complimentary toiletries
use facial cleanser
bring & use anti-perspirant deodorant
limit the use of perfume or body spray.  (Like perfume, you only want people to smell it if they are really close to you)

Apparently, all of this was really hard stuff.

Also the incels are probably mad that a fair portion of women soccer players are some form of queer and support queer rights.

I gotta say, that lumping all men who don't watch women's sports into the "incel" pool is a little disingenuous. I personally have no time for women's sports because I can't even keep up with my favorite sports as it is. I also don't watch high school, college, Paralympics (or any Olympics),any of that X-Games bullshiat, most motorsports, all watersports, etc. etc. Not watching the women is just part of that.

But hey, it's ok that you are so much better than people who acutely enjoy watching something that you don't

I think the point is that not everything meets the criteria of becoming the next Crusade to be trumpeted from every tower with call-up notices plastered on every available surface in every town square. That sometimes, just sometimes, viewing all matters through the lens of fighting the good fight as loudly as possible is a mistake.

Why is Fark so obsessed with incels?  How many are there worldwide, 50?  I wouldn't have even heard this term if not for Fark, but based on mentions on Fark you'd think 1 in 4 men were incels.  And 1 in 5 women.

Everyone needs someone to look down on or mock.  Can't use the R word or F word anymore, so now we pick on those who can't get sex.  It's also acceptable to pick on people who live in a southern state.

That you wish to ignore a violent segment of the population is part of the problem. Understand hating women because that do not like misogynistic  jerks is the fault of the mean. Having women, children and men die because some men hate women and attack others in anger is bad for America.

You apparently willingness bury your head in the sand and be happy people in America suffer because of your willful ignorance. Or you feel the need to lash out in anger yourself because others have decided you are a problem. Work on your issues and join society in a way that benefits it not tears it down.
