    Default New Twist on Terrorism?

    The Toronto van attack suspect was sexually frustrated and called for a "rebellion" by like-minded men just before he's accused of plowing a rental van into pedestrians, killing 10 people -- including at least one young woman.

    Alek Minassian, 25, posted on his personal Facebook page that the “rebellion has already begun” for incels — someone who was involuntarily celibate — and hailed Elliot Rodger, a 22-year-old who killed six people in a 2014 vehicle and shooting rampage near the University of California, Santa Barbara.

    After Alek Minassian’s Toronto van rampage that left 10 dead and 15 injured Monday, speculation abounded about his motive. The 25-year-old suspect had not been on the radar of law enforcement, and authorities said the killings “were not national security related.”

    Then a Facebook post emerged from what appeared to be Minassian’s account. Posted the day of the attack, it hints at an unsettling motive.

    “Private (Recruit) Minassian Infantry 00010, wishing to speak to Sgt 4chan please,” it reads. “C23249161. The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!”

    At first glance, the language in the post invites a healthy dose of skepticism. Considering the enthusiasm with which internet trolls spin false narratives after a tragedy, this claim was met with caution. But recent reports suggest it is, in fact, authentic. Multiple news outlets say Facebook representatives have confirmed the veracity of the post, and Toronto Police in a press conference today indicated they also believe it is authentic.

    So it appears the sexually frustrated are now another extremism group? Maybe the advancement in robotic sex dolls will mitigate this threat in the future? On a serious note, do we think a loose network of transnational, likeminded misogynists like INCEL could have formed before social media? Common criminals and the mentally ill are now worshipped as heroes online, and every now and then one of them will step over the line and commit their own acts of violence. ISIS terrorists demonstrated the effectiveness of vehicular assaults, the mass media and social media perpetuated it, so we should anticipate seeing more and more actors employing it. Future cities will be engineered differently to limit, not eliminate this threat.

    Default RE: "InCels"

    The breathless media reporting on "involuntary celibacy" is reminiscent of the Case of the Trotskyist Anti-Soviet Military Organization in 1937. By definition, celibacy is voluntary, and a person who is seeking sexual relations but is sexually frustrated is not celibate. There have been three mass casualty attacks committed by males deemed to be sexually frustrated, including the recent attack in Toronto. However, in the prior two attacks, the perpetrators both had received psychiatric/psychological therapy for mental health problems.

    Approximately 122 million Americans are in marriages, of which 15-20% (18-24 million people) are defined as sexless. In addition, 29% of Americans are single, including 40-50 million single heterosexual males. Adjusted for the age of the "InCel" attackers, the pool of sexually-frustrated heterosexual males could range from 20-25 million. If the media hysteria about this alleged "community" is to be believed, the United States alone is contending with a far larger population at risk of "violent extremism" than the Alt-Right (including white nationalists/supremacists, Neo-Confederates, anti-government libertarians, Christian supremacists, Neo-Fascists, etc.), black nationalists, or Islamists. If it is to be believed, one would expect open and secret organizations as well as prolific political advocacy and violence.

    Yet that has not been the case. Radical Feminists are unfortunately distorting mass casualty attacks linked to mental health problems in order to further a campaign against what is referred to as "toxic masculinity".

    Default Another example?

    Via Twitter:
    More toxic masculinity and misogyny leading to extreme violence and deaths: Annapolis Shooting Suspect Jarrod Ramos Blamed Capital Gazette for Reporting on his Stalking Conviction.
    Author cites this news website as source:
    Jarrod Ramos had been threatening the Capital Gazette since it reported on his vicious harassment of a woman in 2011.

    Ya know, if they legalized prostitution and integrated into the mental health profession, there'd probably be a lot less empty cartridge casings rolling around the gutters these days.

    nb; Lest anyone get their panties in a bunch, historical relevance to legtimizing the oldest profession in a Small Wars context can be found here.
