We discuss the new documentary
TFW NO GF, which focuses on the lives of extremely online alienated loners in the US. It has consequently been labelled the “incel documentary”. Because the subjects are allowed to speak for themselves, it’s also been called “irresponsible”.
 
We take apart what, if anything, makes this cohort distinct from the past – is it the internet? are they lonelier? are their prospects worse? – and try to place the phenomenon in a wider context. If you haven’t watched the documentary, there are clips from it interspersed throughout.
