Since the word “incel” is off limits, what word is there to describe men who are unable to romance women?

A word to describe the condition only. If there was a correlation with being diagnosed with cancer and joining the KKK, we would still need a word to describe just the condition by itself without the stigma of racism

    Incels named themselves and defined themselves. People have started over-using the term but it's still a valid term.

    No word is off limits.  Incels don't exist.  Nobody is involuntarily celibate (with the possible exception of prisoners locked in solitary confinement).  Being bad at something and being incapable of doing it are not the same thing. 

    Those not involved in a physical relationship with others are in that situation by choice - there are almost 8 billion people on this planet.  No matter who you are, somebody out there will bang you.  Don't believe that?  Go walk around Walmart for an hour.

    Just being unable to attract a woman is what carries the stigma. So whatever word you used, it would very quickly gain the same stigma as "incel".

    The word 'incel' isn't off limits. You yourself used it just now.
