Leaked US Air Force Briefing Discusses 4Chan and the Threat of “Incels”
A leaked US Air Force briefing discusses the threat of “incels” or “involuntary celibates” who post on online forums such as 4Chan and Reddit.
The leak, complete with a “Becky vs. Stacy” meme, has been confirmed as real material used to educate military members of the national security threat of incels at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
The Becky vs. Stacy meme contrasts a plain and average feminist “Becky” with a bombshell “Stacy.”
Incels believe “they are owed attention from ‘Beckys,’” the USAF brief explains.
“The majority of Incel online activity falls under First Amendment protected speech. Following the Toronto attack, there was an increase in discussion of conducting a variety of attacks,” the screenshot says. “Members primarily use online forums such as 4Chan, 8Chan, incel.me and Reddit,” the US Air Force material continues on to say.
“The screenshot was taken from a Joint Base Andrews Intel brief created following basic threat analysis on an increase in nationwide activity by the group,” 11th Wing spokesman Aletha Frost said.
The ridiculous briefing was widely mocked on Twitter.
Have they developed any countermeasures? Are we thinking bombing? Drones? Seems like air superiority won't be a problem.

I won't believe the Air Force has declared incels a threat until they've claimed they require the F-35 to effectively fight them.

Are we totally sure — hear me out — that incels aren’t just mistaking drag queens for Stacys?

Small Diameter Deep Basement Penetrator.
Low collateral damage weapon that can be dropped by most drones, or even hand thrown.
Render the basement uninhabitable and the incel is defeated.
