I’ve collected a few tweets that highlight things I find myself thinking about – mainly what the hell is wrong with us as a people that these are the things we have to be worried about?
In HS I rejected the advances of a boy who had previously slammed my head into a locker, so he called me at home and threatened to kill me. But please, link me to another article about how the redistribution of sex will stop violence against women. Surely you'll change my mind.

I just asked “Wait, which one?” about a school shooting, so that’s where we are as a species.

Stop thanking men for not being creepy jerks. This is expected & required behaviour, not something to be lauded as exceptional.

It is sickening that more kids have lost their lives in schools this year than servicemembers who willingly risk theirs in combat zones https://t.co/qetCduPqwE

Raise your hand if you were bullied as a kid (hell, as a teenager, as an adult) and never massacred a group of people because of it.

I don't know what an incel is. I don't know what the concept of "redistribution of sex" is all about. I don't know where the whole idea of "let's kill people because women won't fuck us" came from all of a sudden. I just know I'm super disgusted.

In the past I have behaved in ways when rejected by women that will always and forever make me deeply ashamed when I think of them, but I have never assaulted or killed anyone.

Stop saying that the Sante Fe victim "rejected" the shooter's "advances" – he wasn't "making advances". He was harassing her. She told him to stop and he killed her and a bunch of others. Stop making it sound like he awkwardly passed her a note asking if she liked anyone.
