Unpopular Men

From Incel Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Unpopular Men, or モテない男性 (motenai dansei), is a Japanese Incelospherian community on the Japanese image board 5channel (formerly 2channel). 5chan has banned all foreigners from posting on its boards, including Unpopular Men, although they can still lurk.

The board is for men who have no experience with the opposite sex. They have their own slang term for an incel: 喪男(pronounced mō, mo otoko or modan), so they shorten the board's name to 喪男板 (mōtoko ita or mōban) or 喪板 (mo ita or moban). They define an unpopular man in their rules as someone who "has never had an experience with a woman, has no female friends, and has no plans to confess to a woman". Users who have female friends or are too optimistic (as seen by the other lonely men) are often attacked.

There is also a similar board for women called もてない女板 (Unpopular Women). Their culture is essentially the same as Unpopular Men's but with the genders reversed. Men are not allowed to post there, and the users tend to strongly attack posts they think are by men. They even have their own term for femcel: 喪女 (pronounced mojo or mo onna). However, unlike on Unpopular Men, "positive" posts are not banned, so there is a mix of bluepilled, redpilled and blackpilled posts.

History[edit | edit source]

The board was established on 21 December 2003. At its peak between then and May 2005, it kept growing until it had about 40,000 posts per day, the same as 2channel's News board. As of April 2023, it typically gets a few hundred posts a day.

On 11 August 2004, もてない女板 (Unpopular Women) was created.

The behaviour of the protagonist in the adventure game "STEINS;GATE" were leaked to the board in February 2005, and became a widespread copypasta called "the man in the cafeteria". STEINS;GATE released in October 2009 and was later made into a manga, novel, and anime.

On 7 May 2005, もてたい男 (men who want to be popular) was created to contain what Western incels would call bluepilled and redpilled posts. Until then, Unpopular Men was full of optimistic threads and threads titled "How to become popular".
