Game may not have led Rodger to find his dream girl and live happily ever after, but it would have given enough results to stop him from killing six innocent individuals and himself. Until you allow and encourage all men to get sex by some means, these massacres will be more commonplace as America’s cultural decline continues.

THE ISLA VISTA tragedy and the murderous rage of Elliot Rodger, described as “a high-functioning patient with Asperger syndrome,” is causing an epic seizure in the establishment media. The most violent came from Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post, a film critic, who goes on a wild goose chase for pop culture themes that could incite a rampage, then draws a faulty conclusion that the films we see are making us act out.
Indeed, as important as it is to understand Rodger’s actions within the context of the mental illness he clearly suffered, it’s just as clear that his delusions were inflated, if not created, by the entertainment industry he grew up in.
[…] How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies like “Neighbors” and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of “sex and fun and pleasure”? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, “It’s not fair”?
Hornaday is identifying the wrong cultural triggers. It’s an antiquated, easy shot analysis from a woman who’s out of her depth and drowning in her own pop culture themes. A film critic can only use what is a very limited landscape, because she completely ignores the SVU-themed darkness, drawing a quite wacky conclusion. Hitting Josh Rogin and Judd Apatow along the way is irresponsible, who are rightly indignant at the insults hurled in their direction.
There is a much wider world that impresses males like Elliot Rodger and causes his already rancid receptacle of thought to combust.
The “manosphere” exists because there are a whole brigade of men, of whom Elliot Rodger was one, who see women’s equality as threatening to their maleness. With this comes the inherent superiority of the alpha male delusions that is fed by other misogynistic ideas, all founded on the traditionalist view of the world straight from the cave man era. It’s just the manosphere takes it to an extreme. The alpha male being a theology unto itself.
Until you give men like Rodger a way to have sex, either by encouraging them 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 an 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. Game is a tiny release valve on a cultural pressure cooker where meaningful relationships have become sick, fractured, and unfulfilling compared to the time of our grandparents when traditional sex roles existed.

Ah, yes, in manosphere world, the urban legend of DSB (deadly semen build-up) is real.
With the horrific loss of life, delving into the deep end of this subject can sound horribly disrespectful. In fact, it’s quite serious, because the manosphere is one place Elliot Rodger sought solace.
This is a subject made for Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart and John Oliver, not the morning cable shows that get fixated on the mental illness alone, which was present, but misses the male entitlement feature of the web’s manosphere that preaches “game” training to make a man out of a mouse, whose biggest fear is an intelligent woman who demands equality that will set both sexes free.
Independent women is the enemy of PUA, the pick-up artist god that manosphere worships.
You cannot simply set loose a film critic to do the job of dissecting the intersection of mental delusion, murder, and uncontrollable lust that leads to megalomania entitlement, as the Washington Post did.
The loss of life is incalculably sad, but this isn’t about some film, even if the argument about the same themes recurring in American entertainment is worth having. This just isn’t the event that’s an appropriate jumping off point for it.
#YesAllWomen began trending after Elliot Rodger went on a killing spree, because he couldn’t get what he wanted out of life and the men in the manosphere felt his raging hard-on against all modern women.
“This is the story of how I, Elliot Rodger, came to be,” the email said. “It is a dark story of sadness, anger and hatred.” Then: “I will punish everyone. And it will be beautiful. Finally, at long last, I can show the world my true worth.” – Elliot Rodger
His parents couldn’t have stopped him and neither could his multiple therapists.
California has the tightest gun laws imaginable, but our country is awash in them and those determined will find a weapon.
Elliot Rodger’s homicidal megalomania and his notion of sexual entitlement because he was an alpha male in his own mind is about the absolute incoherent societal messaging we send on sexuality and the normalcy of teenage passions.
This particular crime is not about gun control.
This is about a puritanical society who as late as the 21st century cannot integrate sexuality into the lives of young teens and cresting into adulthood youths. The inability of our society to talk about sex as something other than a giggle point. To understand that puberty is the beginning of sexual power and the unleashing of the lethality of it all, feelings and flesh, that starts well before 18.
The pornification of America, the entitlement to gratification that only comes through the opposite sex’s consent, it’s all a dynamite fuse set to explode, and it has in the manosphere.
With their traditionalist misogyny and belief that sex is a release entitled for men, as if women don’t physically need it, too, is a cult of internet cave men who believe “learned game” will tame the bitch.
#YesAllWomen have met men like this. In the modern era they’re a plague on our society as virulent as the inability of all of us to talk about sex as a healthy part of life that is central to our overall well being, which applies to both sexes and starts at puberty when innocence meets arousal and no outlet.
One day incels will realize their true strength and numbers, and will overthrow this oppressive feminist system.
Start envisioning a world where WOMEN FEAR YOU.
