- Content note: this storify links to misogyny and discusses the violence of the Elliot Rodger case.
- It started with my analysis of the Elliot Rodger case, which I think is fairly sound.
- — Another Angry Woman (@stavvers)Sat, May 24 2014 17:08:07Elliot Rodger didn't kill those people because he was "mentally disturbed". To even pretend that's why is plain disablism and stigma.
- — Another Angry Woman (@stavvers)Sat, May 24 2014 17:08:46The truth is far scarier to comprehend: Elliot Rodger killed those people because of a sense of entitlement to women's bodies.
- — Another Angry Woman (@stavvers)Sat, May 24 2014 17:10:44I've come across men who think like Elliot Rodger almost every day of my life. It's a linear path from those thoughts to violence.
- — Another Angry Woman (@stavvers)Sat, May 24 2014 17:11:46Men feel entitled. Men perpetrate violence. It's easier to dismiss Elliot Rodger as somehow deviant than to acknowledge these facts.

- Oh, Dave, my sweet naive child of summer. This is not how this goes down at all. What did men take from the Elliot Rodgers case? An opportunity to show off what lovely gents they all are.

- — Ano(do) agresivo (@Gonsales1000011)Sat, May 24 2014 17:17:01@stavvers entitlement" since IMO every men would be ashamed of having such entitlement feelings toward you. I hope I've been explicit enough

All men. All of them.
