How often do shootings occur not in democratic controlled cities? Yet the gun laws are the same.

This is shaping to become a violence against women case.

Facebook has since taken down the post, which read in part, "The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We will overthrow the Chads and the Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger."

Incel means involuntarily celibate people who believe they are denied sex by women due to their looks, social inadequacies, awkwardness and demeanor, according to change.org, where a user launched a petition to ban the incel community from Reddit.

What the ****?

Reddit Bans ‘Incel’ Group for Inciting Violence Against Women

Reddit has banned the online community of “incels,” or men who blame women for their involuntary celibacy and sometimes advocate rape, as part of a new crackdown on forums that glorify and incite violence.

On Tuesday, the incel subreddit disappeared from the internet forum and was replaced with a symbol of a gavel on a red background.

A statement from the company emailed on Thursday said the move was in line with a policy annnounced on Oct. 25 to ban content that calls for violence or physical harm.

"Communities focused on this content and users who post such content will be banned from the site,” the statement said. “As of Nov. 7, r/Incels has been banned for violating this policy.”

The incel subreddit, which had about 40,000 members, and similar online sites promoting hate against women have been under scrutiny for years. While the incel content was closed this week, some of it has been tracked by a watchdog online community called IncelTears, which posted screenshots of old posts to call out derogatory slurs for women, examples of misogyny and comments justifying rape.

An online petition called on Reddit to ban the incel community subreddit, noting that Elliott O. Rodger, a California man who killed six people in a 2014 rampage in Isla Vista near the University of California, Santa Barbara, before firing a bullet into his head, was referred to in the group as “Saint Elliott.”

Mr. Rodger had left behind a rambling history of videos and social media posts on sites popular with sexually frustrated men. In one site, called PUAHate, for “pick up artiste hate,” Mr. Rodger expressed his disgust at women, questioning how they could resist his charms.

Its amazing what you can find on the internet. Who would have thought, a whole community of stalkerforlife-type weirdos.

Are they making fun of people who drink water out of gallon jugs??

I don't understand what's funny about that.

except that wasn't a stereotype you moron. and I am specifically referring to this unfortunate incident. I saw people commenting in real time on multiple platforms itching to be proven right that it was a muslim. and what point are you even trying to make?
