Naama Kates – The Plymouth shooting and what the media gets wrong about incels

Episode 104 – Phil Gurski is joined by the world’s foremost authority on incels, Naama Kates

On August 12, 22-year old Jake Davison killed his mother and four others (including a 3-year old girl) in Plymouth, UK, before taking his own life. Despite initial police statements that this was not a series of acts of terrorism the ‘he was an incel’ bandwagon got going fairly quickly. What we know does not, however, give much support to the theory.

Phil Gurski is joined by the world’s foremost authority on incels, Naama Kates, to look at this case and at more general issues surrounding what we call terrorism.

Incels make no sense. If someone needs sex so bad, why turn to terrorism? Just get a few dollars together; and call the right he/her/them/it. Sex is sex, a partner is not just a physical and cash exchage. “I wanna get laid” in your words, Professor Spy. Anyone who kills a 3 year old girl is a *******.

P.S. I live the baby crying in the back ground, so cute! 🙂
