Now a group of computer scientists have painted the most complete picture yet of the misogynistic groups that fuel the incel movement online.

The "manosphere," as it is known, is divided into four broad groups. "Men's right's activists" (MRAs) claim that family law and social institutions discriminate against men. "Men going their own way" (MGTOW) take this feeling of grievance further, arguing that society can't be "amended"; they often avoid women, blaming them for their problems. "Pick-up artists" (PUAs), meanwhile, date and harass women; they believe society is "feminizing" men.

And then there are the incels, the most potentially violent of the group. Incels abide by the "black pill," a belief that women use their sexual power to dominate men socially. For that, incels want revenge.
