In this video, Laci Green offers an analysis of the recent massacre in Isla Vista and its media fallout. She begins by reviewing the statements Elliot Rodgers made which clearly outline his motivation and intentions for the massacre: not being able to have sex with women. She goes on to address the role that violent masculinity and misogyny played in his actions, two conversations that are surprisingly thin in the nationwide media. She argues that by calling this only an act of psychosis, we fail to address the bigger problem of entitlement, male socialization, and violence motivated by misogyny.
I bought myself a copy of JC Littles ( http://www.theanimatedwoman.com/ ) sweet new book “Motherhood” for my Kindle.
This is the universal story of motherhood, from the gentle moment of birth to the inevitable letting go. It’s a great read for adults AND for kids! ;-)
