TRIGGER WARNING …

So, by now you have all heard of 22 year old Elliot Rodger who went on a killing spree in Isla Vista, a community in Santa Barbara, California. One Friday night, Elliot shot and killed 7 people, including himself, close to the University of California Santa Barbara campus.

Prior to his violent shooting rampage, Elliot recorded a video titled, Day of Retribution in which he states, “college is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. In those years I’ve had to rot in in loneliness, it’s not fair.” and “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”.

About a month ago, after seeing some of Elliot’s YouTube videos, his family contacted authorities. Law Enforcement interviewed Elliot and said they found him to be a ‘perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human’ and took no further action.

Now we have media outlets labeling Elliot as a “mad man”, “spoiled brat”, “misunderstood”, “good human” etc and continuing to file this mass murder under mental health.

Understand that no one is saying that he did not suffer from mental illness, I’m sure he does. But we CANNOT ignore the fact that this mass killing was rooted in his hate of women (misogyny) and inability to properly deal with rejection. There is much to unpack about this incident, how it was handled and how it will be portrayed in the media, but for now I’ll post some tweets from those of us responding to the shooting on twitter.

not everyone who is mentally ill kills women, and not everyone who kills women is mentally ill. the illness is not the common denominator here. hatred of women, viewing women as subhuman, feeling entitled to controlling and getting attention from women: these are the common denominators. mass murdering women is not a mental illness problem. it’s a hating women problem.

now white girls have completely taken over it.

95% of them don’t even know what ‘natural hair journey’ means or it’s importance… They just see the hair and find it ‘cool’ They are the same white girls who still think black girls “never wash their hair” or say shit like “I wish my hair would do that” or “I LOVE Afros!”

I love Bernice. Lol

Quvenzhane Wallis Named Face Of Armani Junior

Making her the “first major child celebrity to be the face of a luxury brand.” 

“Quvenzhane is so talented, despite her young age. Her kindness, curiosity and openness towards others really struck me, as they are all traits I admire. It is for this very reason that I wanted her to be the face of Armani Junior. With her insatiable energy, Quvenzhane made the clothing come alive, interpreting it in her own singular way,” says Giorgio Armani.
