Murder and Misogyny The recent murder of six people by suspected shooter Elliot Rodgers shocked the country, but his 140 page manifesto and YouTube videos were what enraged many women for the following week. Rodger’s video laid out his reason for becoming a murderer: “You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me. But I will punish you all for it.” Are these just the thoughts of a mad man, or is it a sentiment that is all too common?
