I’ve heard this question a lot.

“Incel” is a self-imposed term. They self-identify as “Incels”. It’s not a category you can just be lumped into. It’s a name for an ideology. A proper noun.

There are no shortage of “I prefer to not be celibate but that’s just the way it is right now” people who are repulsed by the doctrine of “Incels”.
