Women have control over which men get sex and which men don't, thus having control over which men breed and which men don't. Feminism gave women the power over the future of the human species. Feminism is evil.

So concluded Elliot Rodger in a post at BodySpace before his deadly rampage in Isla Vista on May 23rd, 2014 (click here). Two years later, the Isla Vista community still struggles to understand the violence of a disturbed young man who had vowed "to destroy the entirety of Isla Vista, and kill every single person in it" because he believed that women "must be punished for their crimes of rejecting" him (My Twisted World, pgs. 124, 118). The aftermath of his murderous rage left six students dead and 14 more injured.

Rodger was obsessed with sex, race, class, and status symbols. Though he was bi-racial, he had a hard time accepting interracial couples. He recounts in his manifesto: "I always felt as if white girls thought less of me because I was half-Asian, but then I see this white girl at the party talking to a full-blooded Asian. How could an ugly Asian attract the attention of a white girl, while a beautiful Eurasian like myself never had any attention from them? I thought with rage" (My Twisted World, pg. 121).

From conversations he had with other sexually frustrated men at websites like PUAHate, Rodger developed the ideology "that women are flawed. There is something mentally wrong with the way their brains are wired, as if they haven't evolved from animal-like thinking. They are incapable of reason or thinking rationally... if their wickedness is not contained, the whole of humanity will be held back from advancement to a more civilized state... women are like a plague that must be quarantined" (My Twisted World, pg. 117).

Fast-forward to the Feminism is Cancer forum put on by UCSB Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) May 26th and the continuing conundrum posed by femininity for many young men.

Having dubbed himself "chemo" for feminism, Milo Yanniopoulos made his entrance to Corwin Pavilion on a throne carried by his acolytes. They wore Trump's signature red baseball cap ("Make America Great Again!") while the theme for Team America World Police thundered in the background (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcidBo3TIUM).

Once on stage, Milo immediately introduced the next POTUS, a life-sized cardboard cutout of Donald Trump that drew wild applause and spirited cries of "USA! USA! USA!" from the predominately white male audience.

For the duration of the rest of his performance, Milo affectionately referred to Trump as "daddy" and quipped with self-congratulatory smugness about the fun of doing his "dangerous f*ggot tour." As Dominick DiCesare of Young Americans for Liberty put it, Milo danced "the line between entertainer and academic" and in the process kindled a bromance with his audience.
