"It's not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don't know why you girls have never been attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It's an injustice, a crime, because I don't know what you don't see in me. I'm the perfect guy, and yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men, instead of me, the supreme gentleman."
Elliot promises the women, or womankind that they will be punished for this rejection of him, a descendant of such a prestigious family. His Aspergers might have made it hard for him to acknowledge that the slightly snobbish importance he attached to his family might not be enough to attract women.
This is misogyny and it is allowed to happen. It's easily fed.
Perhaps Elliot was disturbed. But his attitude and shock at rejection is not new or unusual. As the statistics on similar crimes posted on PolicyMic demonstrate, Elliot fits the bill. He is white, male and his main victims were women who he had come to hate with a passion. This is misogyny and it is allowed to happen. It's easily fed.
Back in 2012 a Huffington Post article concerned with the whiteness of suicide by mass murder - with particular regard to Adam Lanza - noted that "Yes, of course, this is mental illness speaking: but it is mental illness speaking with a voice that has a race and a gender".
It is probably safer for everyone to concentrate on the misogynistic aspects of this recent crime rather than draw so much attention to Elliot's Aspergers and disturbedness. We should focus on why Elliot, why many men, believe they are owed instead of that they need to earn.
