A man has went on a rampage at Virginia Tech, killing 33 and injuring 30 before taking his own life. Early reports from students said the shooter was looking for his girlfriend , once again bringing to the forefront the misogyny that is so common in these kinds of incidents.
Update:Ã‚Â Authorities seem to be operating under the idea that the murderer was the same man who killed two others in the earlier incident they’re calling a “domestic dispute”.
Virginia Tech President Charles Steger said authorities believed that the shooting at the dorm was a domestic dispute and mistakenly thought the gunman had fled the campus.
I’m kind of galled by the use of “domestic dispute”.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â A domestic dispute is an argument.Ã‚Â It is not murdering people! Ã‚Â If we’re going to tag it with a special label – let’s use “male terrorism” instead.Ã‚Â At least that one makes sense even if it pisses the boys off.
I hate our species!
