On this cold winter day, Naama serves up a dose of blackpill, as per popular demand, by “chadfishing”: the practice of creating fake dating app profiles (generally with photos of classically attractive men, or “Chads”) in order to trick people (generally women) seeking romantic or sexual connections. It’s basically catfishing, but the purpose is to expose or understand the different treatment toward would-be suitors based on physical appearance. Traditional chadfishing has been done enough, so Naama creates three other profiles for INCEL: one female, one male in his late 30s, and one in his early 20s, on several different dating apps. Incel YouTuber Pinky (@pinkyculture) explains a bit about chadfishing, and we hear a little from Catfishman, whose interview was recorded months ago and seemed destined for the cutting room floor until this week's topic came up again... Enjoy this slightly sour, refreshing treat. Next week on INCEL, Naama speaks to Ken Reidy, the author of the study "Benevolent Radicalization." P.S.
