At least six Dutch are active on an online misogyny platform incels.me - a platform for frustrated men with sometimes radical ideas that preaches violence, Trouw reports based on its own research.

"Incels" stands for "involuntarily celibate". The platform recently received large amounts of attention, after one if its members - Canadian Alek Minassian - killed 10 people in Toronto last week. The men who call themselves 'incels' consider women as cold beings who are responsible for their suffering, because they do not pay them enough, or any, attention, according to the newspaper.

Also in the Netherlands populism is a rising problem, the organization said in a brief press conference about the report, NOS reports.
