Episode eight of the third season of the Podcast on Crimes Against Women welcomes adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, and researcher of far-right and misogynist terrorism and countering violent extremism, Jacob Ware. Jacob has researched and written work on incel violence that has appeared in many publications including Lawfare, Studies in Conflict & Terrorism, and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague.
In this episode, Jacob explores the subject of incels, how the term "incel" came about, and the history of the incel movement. Jacob then delves into incel ideologies and the common incel theme of hatred for women, taking the "red pill" or "black pill" and other incel terminology, and to what degree online chatrooms and the internet/social media have exacerbated the incel movement. Finally, Jacob shares how he, as a professor, teaches about incels at Georgetown University, the response he receives from students when teaching on this subject, and how male students react to the subject matter of incels in his course.
