Much has surfaced on the web regarding 22-year-old Elliot Rodger; the recent gunman who tore through a student enclave in a car, guns blazing, resulting in the deaths of 7 innocents. Between his 107,927-word document titled “My Twisted World,” his last video posted to YouTube that is assumed to be his manifesto, and a shocking police report, there are several shocking oddities regarding the entire incident.
1. His manifesto video shows the contradictory and confused mind the boy seemed to struggle with eventually leading to such ruthlessness and devastation.
After explaining that, “I’m 22 years old and I’m still a virgin,” he shares, “I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me,” and refers to himself as the, “the supreme gentleman.” He then goes on to promise, “I will punish you all for it.”
Stating that, “I’m going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB and I will slaughter every single spoilt, stuck-up, blonde s*** that I see inside there,” he eventually notes, “I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am, in truth, the superior one. The true alpha male.”
Unfortunately for Rodger, a “true alpha male,” remains in power after earning his spot at the top. Instead, like a coward, he ended up taking his own life. The video goes on to explain his justification of his future killing of innocents as all women will be punished for the few that rejected him and all men for simply having a better life than him – and by that he makes it abundantly clear that he’s mainly jealous of the ones that have had sex.
2. Rodger’s family lawyer has stated that he was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome – a high-functioning branch of autism closely associated with social disability.
According to WebMD, there are several other factors surrounding the subset of autism, but the most notable symptoms surround the social aspects in which would have hindered Rodgers from actually interacting with the highly despised female population.
Those suffering from Asperger’s syndrome, “generally have difficulty interacting with others and often are awkward in social situations. They generally do not make friends easily. They have difficulty initiating and maintaining conversation.” Furthermore, “People with Asperger’s syndrome may not make eye contact when speaking with someone. They may have trouble using facial expressions and gestures, and understanding body language. They also ten d to have problems understanding language in context and are very literal in their use of language.”
As it’s easy to connect the dots here, if Rodgers did in fact suffer from Asperger’s syndrome, you could see why he felt no girls ever portrayed any interest in him – because his disability wouldn’t let him. If you don’t talk to people – and, in fact, avoid people – chances are they aren’t going to show you the time of day; acting in the same way to you, in which you are them.
3. Rodgers wrote in his lengthy document that, “the ultimate evil behind sexuality is the human female.” He went on to share that they, “think like beasts,” and in such, “should not have the right to choose who to mate and breed with.”
4. His desired plan consisted of him driving to a sorority house to, “slaughter every single one of them with my guns and knives.” Along with this he hoped to empty a bag of severed heads onto the street so that those who bore witness to his feat would view him a god.
5. Police actually spoke with Rodgers after he posted several disturbingly dark YouTube videos to his account. They found him to be a, “perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human.”
