“We’re fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.”[my art blog dedicated to everyday muses]
#yesallwomen, because we still have to “explain ourselves” when violence is directed towards us, as if its our fault for damaging the male ego and then being in the way of their flailing fists
Elliot Rodger was mentally ill. He had multiple doctors and therapists. He had been on medications. He had a personality disorder of some sort and depression. Police showed up at his house to check on his welfare this year because they got a call that said he was suicidal. Rodger, however, talked himself out of getting hospitalized.
He was also a sexist misogynist mens right activist, who happened to have a lot of money. He wrote a 141 page manifesto of his life, and in much of this written document he discussed his hatred of women. He thought that women should be put in concentration camps and starved. To say the least, Rodger had very disturbed and distorted thoughts. This is a result of the rape culture that we live in.
He can both be mentally ill and be a sexist murderer.
Having a mental illness does not make him any less guilty of this horrific crime. It’s not excusing him of the crime. He was fully conscious of what he was doing. He had it all planned out. He wanted to blame women for his shortcomings. He wrote a fucking manifesto that was well over 100 pages. He wanted to kill.
REBLOG THIS AS “TEXT”. IT AUTOMATICALLY REBLOGS AS A LINK AND ONLY SHOWS THE BEGINNING THAT LOOKS LIKE IT’S EXCUSING HIS BEHAVIOR, COMPLETELY TAKING AWAY THE ORIGINAL MESSAGE!
A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism."
