in attack. Rodger embarked on his shooting spree hours after posting an online video detailing his plans for "retribution" for rejection by women.
In his final video, Rodger blamed his plans on his lack of romantic success. "Girls, all I’ve ever wanted was to love you and to be loved by you. I've wanted sex. I've wanted love, affection, adoration. You think I’m unworthy of it. That's a crime that can never be forgiven. If I can't have you girls, I will destroy you." (Slate
"George Duarte...remembers Rodger from the SBCC Math Lab last fall. “He was always talking about the same thing, how annoying his roommates were, how he’s gonna move to a different place,” said Duarte. “He was constantly annoyed by people. Of course, when you’re that type of person, no girl is gonna want to hear you whine and complain all day." (Santa Barbara Independent
According to The Telegraph (first link above), "[Rodger] was a regular poster on an online message board called PUAhate [for self-styled haters of “pick-up artists”] where male participants express anger at what they call the “seduction community” and their failure to meet women."
In Rodger's case, the rejection seems to have been largely hypothetical: "All those girls that I've desired so much, they would've all rejected me and looked down on me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them." (Jezebel
