Parents, You Have To Speak To Your Sons About Elliot Rodger And Misogyny

It’s another sort of Memorial Day today, where in addition to remembering the brave service men and women who have died protecting our freedoms and defending our nation, our thoughts are overcome with the horrific reality that on Saturday a heavily armed, mentally disturbed 22-year-old went on a killing spree in a California college town. Elliot Rodger fatally stabbed three of his roommates, shot two women to death in front of a sorority house, shot a man to death inside a deli, exchanged gunfire twice with police and injured 13 people as he drove around, his thoughts consumed with the hatred he felt towards women.

If Your Son Is Wearing These Misogynistic Shirts, It's Safe To Say You Failed As A Parent

They were worried that I would be exposed to despicable trash like the t-shirts available for young men at Spencer’s gift stores. They just didn’t want their daughter to see clothing stating, “When I Want Your Opinion, I’ll take my dick out of your mouth.” More »
