We mentioned here that escortcels aren't 100% incels; they're nearcels or something similar. At last there are some good economics analogies about them. Take a look:
Animecel3479 said that escortcels are like rent payers and how dare they compare themselves to incels who haven't ever touched a woman; the escortcels make multiple posts about their escort experience and it's like rubbing in face the fact you ate to a starving man.
Zhou Chang-Xing said that escortcels (aka "escortmaxxers") are like homeless men who paid to use a homeless shelter for a couple of nights. (A homeless shelter is a temporary solution.)
So, this is it: noncel > escortcel > incel = settled (having home) > homeless shelter > homeless.
