How was the late Elliot Rodger the epitome of millennial entitlement?
He actually felt since he came from a rich family girls/women should throw themselves at him! One of his major complaints was seeing college coeds dating athletes. He also hated interracial dating.
'I was shopping at Trader Joe’s and saw an Indian guy with 2 above average White Girls!!! What rage-inducing sights did you guys see today? Don’t you just hate seeing these things when you go out? It just makes you want to quit life.'
He complained of being an "Incel" (involuntary celibacy) virgin.
Another post stated:
“Women are not drawn to indicators of evolutionary fitness. If they were, they'd be all over me”; and “Never insult the style of Elliot Rodger. I’m the most stylish person in the world. Just look at my profile pic. That’s just one of my fabulous outfits. The sweater I’m wearing in the picture is $500 from Neiman Marcus.”
One thing his story reveals is a subculture of sexually frustrated men who hate women because they were rejected by those whom they wanted to have sex with.
Elliot Rodger has been called a hero online for his comments posted to Pick-Up-Artist websites & forums. When he was unable to meet and seduce women he joined PUAHate.com a 'Anti-Pickup-Artist Movement' which reportedly is popular for guys who invested in "pickup books" & seminars without having any "success".
Elliot thought if there were no men he could have all the women.
'If you could release a virus that would kill every single man on Earth, except for yourself because you would have the antidote, would you do it?'
'You will be the only man left, with all the females. You would be able to have your pick of any beautiful woman you want, as well has having dealt vengeance on the men who took then from you.
'Imagine how satisfying that would be.'
He was a subscriber of websites ForeverAlone and love-shy.com where he wrote: “It upsets me, seeing all the Hot Babes I can't have sex with." - Deranged!
It would be easy to dismiss Elliott as being an immature kid who felt he was entitled to have "beautiful women" beg for his attention. However before him there was George Sodini, age (48) who in 2009 killed three women and injured nine other people before killing himself, and who had written extensively online about being rejected by women.
"Women just don't like me. There are 30 million desirable women in the US (my estimate) and I cannot find one," he wrote. The page ended with the words "Death Lives!" Both felt "entitled" and misogynistic.
I didn't know about George Sodini. This is MUCH WORSE than what I have thought. There are just some people who simply can't handle rejection, sad isn't it!
It's very sad so many men are so "full of themselves" they can't accept rejection. Commonsense should dictate one moves on to the next person or change their approach.
Elliot and George may have also been chasing women out of their league!
There is ALWAYS A MATCH FOR EVERYONE. If one cannot get a 1, one can always get a 5 or 6.....hmmmm........
I'm not sure I agree with you tying this incident into "millennial/snake people entitlement" - the majority of people in the millennial age bracket are in debt, can't find good jobs, and can barely afford rent/transportation. The only thing we believe we're entitled to is a fair system that hasn't been corrupted by the baby boomers and a clean environment.

Why do so many people feel "entitled" and "deserving" these days?This seems especially apparent in younger people and children.

What is entitlement anyway? The right to something? Why does socialized health care have to be considered "bad" when we pay taxes for things that benefit everyone, like roads and education?Good health would certainly be a benefit to society as a whole. People are able to work more and...

Is entitlement contagious?I really want to spread that.

Through our working years we all paid for Social Security and Medicare, so why are they considered entitlements when in fact we contributed our own money into the system?
