As I eluded to in my post yesterday (which I’ve since deleted - if you’d like to know more about that then message me), I believe the best way to steer people away from the Cult of Propecia is to shine the light on how these forums and subs are really just incel infestations where the deepest insecurities of bitter, resentful neckbeards are shamelessly discussed.
r/tressless seems to be the biggest hotspot at the moment, and it seems they’ve gotten way more careful on who’s allowed to post and what words/terms they use since all those incel subreddits got banned, but make no mistake, this is one of the new premier incel subreddits. Still, because of what happened with those other subs they extremely tame compared to hairlosstalk and similar rogue sites, as well as Cult of Propecia Grand Wizard K.M. (not using his full name because he seems like the kind of guy that Googles himself regularly - wouldn’t want him to get a deranged member of his audience to try and kill me) and his fanatics. Honestly, I’ve never seen more red flags than I’ve seen in hair loss video comment sections or hair loss forums. Even 8chan posters aren’t this repulsive. I don’t doubt that some of these unstable people are potential right-wing terrorists (if I were in the FBI I’d keep a VERY close eye on hairlosstalk.com in particular, although for all I know, they already are).
I’m not sure what the best way is to connect the Cult of Propecia with inceldom. There are plenty of comments and users to screenshot, but it would be pointless to post here since we’d just be preaching to the choir, and commenting on the forums or subs themselves won’t do anything other than get you flogged (and might just push one of these degenerates to target you - god knows they’ve got plenty of time on their hands, and don’t ever underestimate how deranged a cultist can become. There’s almost no limit to it). Maybe starting a brigade on Twitter? Maybe getting Reddit admins involved to potentially quarantine or even ban r/tressless? Maybe flagging K.M. videos for harrassment or even calls to violence? Even if he himself isn’t violent (I doubt he would be - he’s clearly in it to exploit these dweebs and milk the cult for all they’re worth, but his audience certainly has the potential for it) Give me all of your ideas - maybe we can get something going here.
I think the best we can do is stop new people from getting sucked into this cult. Based on the disgusting and repulsive things I’ve seen on these horrendous places - once you’ve gotten sucked into that cult, you might be FUBAR, but if we can destroy these hives we might make future infestations more difficult and make it that much harder for them to prey on vulnerable people. Deplatforming is very effective, and it’s probably the best thing we can try to do right now.
