Because “fear” shouldn’t be the norm

Friday, six people were killed by a young man who believed he had every right to take others lives, all because he believed he had been mistreated by women.  Ignored and unloved, he decided to take out his final revenge in a killing spree designed to obliterate a university sorority. Two sorority members were killed.

The video of this 22-year-old (who will remain nameless) is chilling. He believes he is entitled to sex with women. The rejection he feels is unacceptable, because women should exist only to serve men and fulfill their desires.

The internet responded with a fabulous hashtag, #YesAllWomen. But it’s also responded with more men who feel the spree was justified.

This isn’t my usual kind of post, but given that my blog talks about dating, I want to take a few minutes to address this situation. I want to get personal. I want us to get our hands dirty. Let’s dig in together.

So I used a random number generator to find a number, and then I counted down to that number in my list of blog followers (in case anyone was actually wondering how I picked the winner, to show that it was all above board :-P).

And the winner of a $30 Proflowers credit and a $15 Starbucks gift card is… Is it me!?
