Shooting at UC Santa Barbara

Quote:
Six students at the University of California at Santa Barbara were killed by a man who went on a rampage Friday night. Authorities have identified the killer, who left various video and written manifestos saying that he was seeking to kill sorority women and others at the university as revenge for the way women had rejected him. The killer -- who subsequently shot himself -- has been identified as a student who enrolled but frequently dropped out of classes at Santa Barbara City College.
"We are horrified and deeply saddened by the tragic events in Isla Vista last night.... We grieve for the precious lives lost, and we share in the heartbreak of their families, friends, and classmates," said a letter released Saturday by Henry T. Yang, chancellor of the university.
Initially, police confirmed three deaths of UCSB students -- two women who were shot and killed on the lawn of Alpha Phi sorority, and a male who was shot in a convenience store. On Sunday, the university confirmed that three other male students found stabbed to death in the killer's apartment were also UCSB students. Two of them reportedly were on the lease for the apartment with the student who killed them.

His mental illness (whatever he had) did not cause him to shoot the college women. His male entitlement did. Read his "manifesto" or whatever that's been posted online that he sent to his parents. You might wanna have a trashcan nearby too.

"OH NO.

GIRL WON'T DATE ME. I'M A DISGUSTING CREEP. IT'S GIRLS FAULT. """"FRIENDZONED""" THAT FACE WHEN NO GF."

God. This needs to stop. Now. Women are literally DYING and being MURDERED for simply saying no to someone's advances when they are disinterested. As women, we are taught from an early age that no is one of the most powerful words you can say to someone, and yet when we do, we face extreme results. Death should not be a result of standing up for yourself ever. Funny thing is, it normally ends up that way. Women say no for not sleeping with a guy, she's a prude. Women say yes for sleeping with a guy, she's a slut.

This isn't the only case of a man who went berserk due to thinking he was someone entitled to females just for being a man. Search on any news site, search engine, what have you, the results will poor is.

I saw a really great quote the other day that pretty much sums up the argument that men aren't REALLY dangerous and have no influence on the matter whatsoever.

"Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.

Go ahead. Eat a handful.

Not all M&M's are poisonous."

That's captures exactly how the situation is and always have been. Misogyny kills. There's no arguing that.

Wow, what a loser. He definitely deserves a death penalty, mental illness or not. But knowing the justice system he will live in a lap of luxury called prison until his time runs out.

I've read only the first few pages of his manifesto, but a lot of what he said was just awful and disturbing.
It's messed up that there are people who actually feel sorry for this guy and excusing it as a mental illness. Yes rejection sucks, but that never justifies murder. Reading the manifesto, I'm glad he never got a girlfriend if this is how he thinks of women. He deserves to be ridiculed

Unfortunately he took the coward's way out and committed suicide after the shooting

It was an absolutely disgusting read that he literally sent to his parents. The very end was the kicker for me.

The thing is, people with mental illness are more likely to be victims OF a crime instead of COMMIT them. The MRA are writing this off as depression or whatever they came up and it's not. He was a literal misogynist. I'm happy there are sensible people who see past his "mental illness" and cite his crime for what it was.

I don't know much about this, but I've seen many comments about it being things like "sluts should have just put out for him", which is completely wrong. These comments, and the violent acts like this that happen, will only be stopped once people are taught how to act courteously to each other regardless of gender. There shouldn't be excuses like "boys will be boys" or "girls will be girls".
A woman has the right to say no just as much as a man does. Rejection hurts, but you can't take it out on people, especially people who have never even met you before.

I think a lot of it was trolling but you wouldn't believe the amount of serious MRA posts on reddit and other forums like that.
