Fucked Up Shit

1607126_10151876633442499_1306466575_nThere's a lot of anger on the internet today about Elliot Rodger--a disturbed white boy who shot up a sorority house because he was a 22 year old virgin.

Facts: Rodger drove a BMW to the sorority house with the expressed and documented on YouTube intent to "slaughter every blonde" there. He went on a tirade about how his life was horrible because no one would fuck him.

Opinion: This is the terrible collision of rape/entitlement culture and a societal system that glorifies mass violence while simultaneously doing nothing to prevent unhinged people from procuring weapons. Look, the kid had money. Privilege + power + access to guns + skewed thinking because the messages he's been given his whole life tell him he's entitled to sex and that women who say no are the enemy = 7 people dead, 7 more injured.

Question: What the hell are we going to do about it? This incident cannot be boiled down to "this is why we need gun control" or "he's mentally ill" or this is everything wrong with male entitlement and male rights movements". This is a culmination of all of the above. This is the "logical" end result when these components come together. This is the machine built by this blue print. And again, I ask you, what are WE going to do about it? How do we change the blue print? What do we do rather than spout impotent rage on the internet?
