Elliot Rodgers was a bloody tragedy.
6 people died while others were injured.
Lets get this straight. We all want to blame one thing and one thing alone for Elliot Rodgers. I don’t see it as that easy. It is clear that Elliot Rodgers was a deeply disturbed man and had a mental health problem. It is also clear that guns and American Culture in humanising and dissecting the lives of those who “went Postal” had a role. It is also clear that the misogyny promoted by the PUA/MRA communities and male privilege played a role.
But the problem is everyone wants their personal “cause” to be the issue. There are people who insist that he has a mental health issue. There are some who insist it is the MRA stuff. There are some blaming guns.
The privilege and mental health created the man, the MRA/PUA gave him his targets. The guns enabled his deadly rampage. All have a role.
