Sammanfattning: Through thematic analysis and based on the research questions; "Can the incel movement be considered marginalized based on the concept of counterpublics?" And "How does identity-building and feminist resistance manifest within the movement?". The study's goal was to shed light on how feminist resistance manifests itself in the manosphere. The study was delimited to focus on the incel movement and, more specifically, the discussion forum Based on the results and the themes that have been generated, it can be concluded that large parts of identity form around sexuality and the hierarchical systems that the movement uses to explain society. In the creation of identity, sexuality and appearance are two central elements to be placed within the hierarchy. The movement also sees itself as marginalized to a large extent and shows a strong hatred of the progress of feminism, women, and society. Sweden's over-representation within the movement, calculated per million inhabitants in combination with more a more feminist policy may indicate that the movement can be considered marginalized in Sweden. The issue of incels as marginalized and counterpublics can thus be local and culturally dependent. The study has also shown similarities to feminist ideologies' position on structural differences and system criticism, but with a shifted focus to a matriarchal society. It should also be noted that further research on the subject is important in order to gain a deeper understanding of the group and the potential for radicalization within the movement.
