A 58 year old WHITE male decided that his opportunity to make a mark on this world occurred either tonight, or tomorrow, or yesterday based on where you live, and stormed into a Grand Theatre 16, in Lafayette, LA, and randomly shoot a bunch of people in the outwardly feminist seeming film “Trainwreck.”
He killed two people, and wounded seven others.
Trainwreck is a movie about a woman who fucks men indiscriminately.
“There’s nothing to believe that there was any kind of motive,” said Col. Michael Edmonson of the Louisiana State Police.”
In my opinion people who are going to go out in a blaze of glory choose their battles. If you do this you are going to try to hurt the ones who hurt you or at least the ones who tangentially hurt you.
Time after time you hear about older guys who suddenly feel irrelevant once they realize that younger women no longer fawn over them.
You also have the younger guys like Elliot Rodgers, who’s thesis against women caused not only a mass murder, but a whole sycophantic echo chamber on 4chan following his antics.
I feel like this unnamed Trainwreak shooter is the amalgamation of those who just realize they’re outgrowing of their vitality, and those young and old who feel like their vitality is already over, or could never be enough.
It is a strange land where this kind of violence comes time and time against women, yet we never, even as women, quite accept it. Even when Elliot Rodger’s manifesto was found it was still just a case of mental illness, because hating women is pretty much par for the course. Why else the is war against female sexual autonomy still a fucking thing? Things we should have been promised since 1973 are suddenly once again a hot topic. It’s basically a baby-boomer hangover. What they once believed and rained down onto us has suddenly become toxic when they grew up onto our parents. Who are we to become?
