Women targeted for murder on the basis of gender alone yet again.

Post to Twitter

The first two sentences from this NYT article report:

Tortured by loneliness and his lack of success with women, George Sodini developed a plan to get even. On Tuesday night, he executed it, opening fire in a fitness center here and hitting 12 women, 3 fatally, before turning a gun on himself.

Women as a class didn’t do what he wanted, so Sodini killed women he did not even know to “get even.” Sounds all too familiar; see also, see also. To paraphrase a friend, books like”The Rules”&”He’s Really Not That Into You”assumes it’s women who are desperate and bitter, but men are the ones doing the killing.
