By now you’ve probably heard about “Elliot Rodger’s Retribution” killings…

Basically, he was a 22-year old man with mental illness who killed people on a college campus in California…

Let me state the obvious: this is a TRAGEDY. It’s such a sad, horrible waste of young lives. I give my condolences to the family and friends of those who were killed and the surviving victims.

Now I want to talk about the ripple effect aftermath of this tragedy… and how what happened loosely pertains to this site and blogs like mine…

Elliot Rodger blamed women for his loneliness and for being a virgin. He subscribed to a couple dating and social anxiety related Youtube channels…

Emotions are high right now. It seems like a lot of people are looking to blame guns, pickup artists, men in general, and other things for what happened…

I’ll fully post my thoughts on all this tomorrow…

Here’s some of the facts as I know of currently (I need to do more research myself regarding what happened):

Elliot Rodger’s dad reported his recent radical behavior to the authorities. They evaluated and did not determine that he was a threat. He reportedly was prescribed an SSRI. I can only assume he was at one point visiting a psychologist and a doctor prescribed him that medication. These people are all educated and trained to handle mentally troubled people. They dealt with him IN-PERSON, and yet I don’t believe you can blame them for what happened.

It’s even a further stretch to blame men giving dating or anxiety advice online… who’ve NEVER met this man.

I have NEVER seen a “pickup artist” instructor advocate violence against women. I have seen them try to tackle the difficult task of trying to help men become better socially and overcome their anxiety. To help them make women laugh, dress better and overall become more attractive.

Much of the world does not understand people with mental problems. I’m not talking about Elliot Rodger, I myself cannot understand his horrible actions or what was going through his head. I’m talking about social anxiety, peer interaction problems, panic attacks, phobias, depression, personality disorders etc. They rather avoid them than get involved.

Don’t go on a witch hunt after those who are spending their time trying to HELP men with mental problems become happy and fulfilled with their lives. Such actions are misguided.

More tomorrow. For now I want to give my condolences to the family of the victims and I hope people can keep a level, rational head regarding the cause of this tragedy.

I leave you with a recent Facebook post by Maddox the creator of The Best Page In The Universe. I think it makes a lot of sense:
