Still a virgin at the age of 22, Elliot Rodger used that excuse to go on a psychotic murder spree. The son of a noted Hollywood director, Rodger posted video warnings of what he planned to do in Santa Barbara. Seven dead people later, Rodger ended his life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Elliot Rodger complained of his "loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires," blaming women for preferring "obnoxious brutes" to himself, who he considered the "supreme gentleman."
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Driving his black BMW, Rodger believed to have acted alone in the shootings Friday night in Isla Vista near the University of California, Santa Barbara.
A video posted on social media by the suspected killer called "Elliot Rodger's Retribution," Rodger rants about women who supposedly rejected his advances.
The Santa Barbara City College student complained of his "loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires," blaming women for preferring "obnoxious brutes" to himself, who he considered the "supreme gentleman."
"I'm 22 years old and I'm still a virgin. I've never even kissed a girl," he says in the video.
"College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. But in those years I've had to rot in loneliness. It's not fair. 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," he says in the video.
"I'm going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB and I will slaughter every single spoilt, stuck-up, blonde s___ that I see inside there," he says.
"All those girls that I've desired so much, they would have all rejected me and looked down on me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them.
"I'll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am, in truth, the superior one. The true alpha male.
"Yes. After I have annihilated every single girl in the sorority house I will take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there. All those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure."
Rodger's family had called police several weeks ago after being alarmed by YouTube videos "regarding suicide and the killing of people," a lawyer said yesterday.
Police interviewed Rodger and found him to be a "perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human," family attorney Alan Shifman said.
The horrific incident is yet another example on the Culture of Promiscuity, where young men are made to feel inadequate if they refrain from sexual contact or have sex with as many partners as possible.
