Anti-woman website predicts more Elliott Rogers if society doesn’t provide them with sex

A website popular with the online Pick-up Artist community responded to Elliott Rodger’s murderous Santa Barbara rampage, saying it could have been avoided if Rodger had ‘game,’ like they profess to possess, before concluding that “more people will die” unless society provides men with more “sexual options.”

The Return of Kings article, written by ‘Roosh,’ goes to elaborate lengths to explain that the PUA-hate community that Rodger was a part of held him back from learning the “masculine” art of seduction – which they call “game” – and, combined with the “American media, the blogosphere, men’s rights activists, and progressive organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center,”  Rodger was encouraged to hate and ultimately murder women.

“All these groups are complicit for creating a cultural environment that allowed this massacre to occur, ” Roosh wrote. “It is them (sic) who must accept responsibility for these seven deaths and make the moral change to their ideologies in order to prevent such an act from happening again.”

Stating that Rodger was “undoubtedly mentally unstable and required professional supervision,” Roosh concludes from watching Rodger’s YouTube videos that he displayed “an above-average intelligence and the propensity to connect with individuals in certain cases.”

He adds, “I’ve personally interacted with men who functioned lower than him, but were later able to successfully meet average-looking women and achieve intimacy with them.”

Roosh goes on to say, “We live in a society where being shy, normal, or a little awkward is duly punished by entitled American women who have been encouraged to pursue exciting and fun casual sex in their prime with sexy and hot men as a way of ‘experimentation.’”

He then explains that when women have “passed their physical prime” they then select a “nice guy”  with whom to settle down, with the understanding that he is “expected to keep his mouth shut when a trickle flow of informational torture reveals that his bride-to-be has experienced more than a dozen different penises in her vagina, anus, and mouth—the same mouth that is supposed to kiss his future children good night.”

Roosh points out that “beta men”  like Rodger are constrained by collegiate “anti-male”  rape codes, and  the American media which has maligned the “manosphere,”  where betas might learn “game” and therby improve their chances with desirable women.

He asserts that Rodger’s  hatred of women was encouraged at “…. where he was able to meet other virgins and mentally unstable men to provide him with comfort while encouraging his budding hatred not just against women for serving him rejections—something that pro-game advocates accept as normal—but also society as a whole for not giving him what he believed he deserved.”

“If Rodger came to me, he would have been received actionable and effective advice, ” Roosh explains. “He would have been exposed to material detailing how socially corrupt American society has become, and how being a beta male provider—his principal strategy in trying to get laid—is no longer useful in achieving intimacy with women who now see men as entertaining clowns that should provide them with excitement, drama, and tension.”

Admitting that he was once “no different than Rodger,”  Roosh continued, “Seven people are dead because society has decided that shy and awkward men like Elliot Rodger do not deserve a girlfriend and that there is absolutely no way to improve his loneliness and loserdom through learning game or any other social behavior. At the same time men like him are ostracized, there is no legal means for him to solicit prostitution (in California) to release his biological and very pressing urge for fornication.”

Roosh  recommends that society change its ways, warning: “More people will die unless you give men sexual options.”

“Until you give men like Rodger a way to have sex, either by encouraging him to learn game, seek out a Thai wife, or engage in legalized prostitution—three things that the American media and cultural elite venomously attack, it’s inevitable for another massacre to occur. Even game itself, as useful as it is on a individual level, is a band-aid fix upon a culture which has stopped rewarding nice guys while encouraging female whoring to benefit only the top 10% of alpha males, all in the name of societal progress.”

Quoting terpmama: And what the hell is an "anti-male rape code"?

That's what I'd like to know, but am afraid I already do.

It is why I said in my comment on this in another post, that rape culture is one aspect in this murder rampage.

Here is something else on this:

#YesAllWomen Trend Is Uprooting Everyday Misogyny One Tweet at a Time

#YesAllWomen Trend Is Uprooting Everyday Misogyny One Tweet at a Time

As we continue to process the events of last Friday, in which 22-year-old Elliot Rodgers went on an anti-woman shooting spree he deemed "the Day of Retribution" in order to punish those women who rebuffed him, one hashtag has been proliferating immensely on Twitter. With "#YesAllWomen," many Twitter have been sharing their experiences as women in a culture where they do not feel safe. Some have shared personal experiences while others have pointed to broader social patterns and behaviors. But they all address head-on the dangers of being a woman in our culture—the type of dangers that just became more tangible with the actions of Elliot Rodger. The tweets are just as sobering as they are empowering:

baeth @postirl :

because when we're offended at something we are told we are 'too sensitive' & 'it was a joke' rather than given an apology

Emily @emilyhughes :

Because every single woman I know has a story about a man feeling entitled to access to her body. Every. Single. One.

Kate Tuttle @katekilla :

Girls grow up knowing that it's safer to give a fake phone number than to turn a guy down.

Leigh Alexander @leighalexander :

because when someone writes threats about us online, Twitter says it is 'not abuse', not a warning sign, not even unusual

Carrie K. @OneBookishMom :

In college, a police officer told us to scream FIRE if we were in danger of being assaulted otherwise people won't get involved

Felice Fawn @felicefawn :

Because Robin Thicke is applauded while Miley Cyrus is censored and ridiculed.

Meg Turney @megturney :

Because when I receive sexual harassment and even death threats online, I'm told it's my fault.

When senseless tragedies like this happen, we try to look for something bigger, a pattern or a profile to which we can attach such devastation. And the trail of evidence and motivation left in Rodger's wake, the Youtube videos, the online posts, and the 141-page manifesto give us some semblance of that. Rodger's manifesto reveals that he resented men for having sex and falling in love with women just as much as he resented women for rebuffing him. But the focus of his rage and blame always remained on women, which apparently made his indignation reasonable.

While the ramblings of a disturbed young man intent on purifying the world, ridding it of sex and love by eradicating women and putting them into concentration camps is clearly beyond delusional, his rhetoric and general view of entitlement to women is engendered by the same anti-women notions that houses the men's rights movement. We are told not to give attention to the ideology of a deranged killer, but what are we supposed to do when that ideology is as widespread as misogyny?

The power of misogyny that fuels MRAs partially lies in its 'subtlety,' the fact that there hasn't been such a high-profile attack that is categorically rooted in an anti-woman sentiment since maybe the École Polytechnique Massacre in Montreal in 1989, in which a 25-year-old man killed 14 women in a crusade against feminism and the feminists he felt were ruining his life. And even, the extremity of these attacks have permitted 'everyday misogyny' to continue—after all, it's not like an 'everyday misogynist' killed or even hurt anyone, only the mentally ill or criminal ones. Being able to distance a movement from the actions of a mentally disturbed person still allows for the space for ideas like "retribution" to fester.

But now with trends like the #YesAllWomen hashtag, we are uprooting everyday sexism, the ideas that perpetuate systematic marginalization, outright violence towards women, rape culture, and demonization of women who deign to stand up for themselves, forcing it out and showing just how pervasive and destructive it is.
