i got 29,900 on that vocabulary test going around.
unacceptable. i need to find more time to read and browse the dictionary like i used to.
people who sympathize with elliot rodger make me sick, what the flying fuck. (the guy was basically a living parody of the typical fedora-head/MRA so can we just all accept how fucked up that is.)
i doubt it was just a case of mental illness. he wasn’t a ‘nice, sophisticated’ boy. he was a misogynist who felt entitled to women’s bodies as sex objects and surprise, surprise!! not acknowledging that means more men can continue thinking the same way.
the news coverage lens of mental illness and ‘boohoo, poor isolated, misunderstood boy’ erases the very real, problematic issues of misogyny and even racism that fueled rodger, while also stigmatizing mental illness. none of this is okay.
