Purpose: We are conducting a research project designed to help us evaluate your experiences. We are going to ask you about your experience with relationships, and about other people’s experiences that you might have heard about. We will also ask you about the properties of your experiences and how they made you feel. We will also ask you about some things you might believe, and some questions about your personality. The survey could take up to an hour to complete, depending on your experiences. This survey is also completely anonymous and does not require any personal, identifying information.
The population we are trying to procure responses from is known as incels. People tend to describe this group without getting their perspective. This is a chance to contribute with your own voice. We want to understand the experience for you from your perspective. However, if you would not put yourself into this category, your responses on the survey are still important.
Who are we recruiting? We are looking for people with a wide range of experiences and beliefs with relationships and women. Men over the age of 18 are invited to participate.
Risks and Benefits: We don't anticipate any risks besides some of the questions possibly making you uncomfortable. There are no benefits to you for participating besides learning about the research.
Compensation: There is no compensation for participation.
