Fox News: 'Homosexual impulses' led to mass shooting in California

Many have wondered what the motivation was for the mass shooting in California this past Friday. On Fox News, they gave their opinion.

Friday afternoon, 22 year old Elliot Rodger drove near the UC Santa Barbara campus in his BMW and opened fire. Rodger killed six people, injured seven more and his rampage didn't end until he took his own life. Prior to the shooting, Rodger's posted a video on YouTube where he railed against young women who never gave him the time of day.

"All you girls who rejected me and looked down upon me and treated me like scum, while you gave yourself to other men...And all of you men for living a better life than me. All of you sexually active men. I hate you."

While discussing the issue on Fox News, reality television psychologist Dr. Robi Ludwig stated that Rodger's possibly acted out due to "homosexual impulses."

"When I was first listening to him, I was like, 'Oh, he's angry with women for rejecting him...and then I started to have a different idea: Is this somebody who is trying to fight against his homosexual impulses?...Was he angry with women because they were taking away men from him?" she continued. "But this is a kid who couldn't connect, and felt enraged, and wanted to obliterate anyone that made him feel like a nothing."

Ludwig continued, claiming that Rodger's possibly didn't "feel like a real man,' which could have motivated him to kill.

"This was just a kid that was angry in general. He probably felt rejected, he couldn't connect, he couldn't feel loved, he couldn't feel successful. Maybe he couldn't even feel like a real man."

For anyone to open fire with the intention to murder anyone is signs of a possible mental condition. The easy access to guns is another problem that is talked about, but quickly countered by right-wing extremists and even silenced by some in the main stream media. Whether it's weak gun laws or a mental condition, it's safe to safe that someone's sexual orientation probably had nothing to do with it.
