Her name is Alana, and in 1997, she started a website called the Involuntary Celibacy Project, initially shortened to "invcel." (That "v" awkwardly stuck in the middle eventually fell off.) It was meant to be a friendly place where late bloomers like herself could talk and joke about their struggles, and perhaps even make connections. The idea of a friendly internet forum may seem foreign to us in 2019, but in 1997, it wasn't that rare. Believe it or not, the group inspired a total of zero mass shootings during this time.
But Alana notes that even in those early days, when the community was mostly friendly and supportive, there were angry men who blamed women for all their problems. When she left in 2000, perhaps feeling like this whole internet thing was on its last legs, she was confident that the group would grow in a positive direction. It didn't go that way. At some point the misogynists took over, and now, instead of good people fighting against the stereotype of the pathetic virgin, we have a bunch of men who call Elliot Rodger "St. Elliot." Oh well, maybe the next civilization will do better.
