HATING WOMEN IS WHAT MEN DO
Man-hater tigtog fully understands the pressures that drove George Sodini to open fire on a exercise class full of women:
There’s been some feminist commentary on tumblr as people react, and there’s been some kickback. Pandorasmittens quotes three tumblrers who talk about how the shooter’s feelings of sexual entitlement are normalised for men in our society, so that it’s hardly surprising when the occasional bloke reacts with deadly violence to women not giving him what he wants – all his life he’s felt safe expressing the opinion that women owe men attention and companionship just because that’s what women are for, so that it’s obvious to him that if he is not getting attention and companionship from women it’s because the women are defective and broken, and defective and broken things should be trashed. It is noted that already news stories are focussing on his isolation and loneliness because that’s relatable and sympathetic, instead of examining how he ended up hating women enough to cold-bloodedly kill them. “Because, in the end, it is easier to hate and blame women than to hate and blame yourself.”Thus Sodini, as a product of sick women-hating western society, is absolved of responsibility for his horrific shooting spree. In reality it's just as likely he was just another violent gym devotee.
