They are not "incels"-they are violent misogynists"

Toronto van attack throws spotlight on anti-woman vitriol

Toronto van attack throws spotlight on anti-woman vitriol

And yet, not only can it happen, it has happened time and again.

Rodger uploaded the video "Elliot Rodger's Retribution" to YouTube, in which he said that he was going to kill sexually active women because they had rejected him in the past. All those girls that I've desired so much, they would have all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them.

It's a movement made up nearly entirely of men who claim they "can't have sex despite wanting to", according to

"You will always be loved and your love for sports will always be with me while I cheer with you", he wrote on Facebook. "And I can't wait to give you exactly what you deserve - utter annihilation".

The service of the first responders and care providers has been highly commended, as has the officer who arrested Minassian, Const. Ken Lam, for his remarkable restraint in how he handled an extremely tense situation.

A September 2013 blog post said Mr Minassian had started to work at Seneca College's Centre for Development of Open Technology. Not only do they fantasize about inflicting maximum harm, they hope to inspire others to do the same.

Online community forums frequented by incels often feature misogynistic rhetoric.

The victims are eight women and two men age from 22 to 94 years old, and include two foreign nationals - a student from South Korea and a man from Jordan who was visiting family in Toronto. The outcome tends to the version that Minassian mentally inadequate. The pervasive belief, which honestly from my experience seems to be ingrained as opposed to something men act upon knowingly, is that making an advance on a woman deserves a response (and a positive one at that). "We should take it very seriously". The Chads are men who are seen as triumphant in repeatedly gaining the attention of women and the Stacys are the women who turn certain men down. And Judith Taylor, a University of Toronto professor who focuses on social movements, notes that some participants in incel discussions simply feel forsaken, while others "can become very graphic and very toxic".

Roma was a hard moment, but it should not erase what we have achieved in the last week". "Valverde deserves this more than anyone".

Next, disrupt their networks and deprive them of platforms.

She was "always up for a challenge and really wanted to help people out", he said.

It was only then that mass outrage prompted hate sites such as The Daily Stormer to be pushed to the dark web, for Spotify to remove hate music and for Apple Pay to deprive hate groups of payment services. Push Reddit to close down the copycat subreddits that have sprung up in recent months. This exposure is eliciting a variety of reactions among incels - some users are dismayed that their subculture might be exposed and then shut down, while others rejoice, calling Minassian a "saint" akin to the veneration Elliot Rodger receives in this community.

"We now have 100-plus images that have been uploaded to that web portal".

Kang, who worked at the Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse in downtown Toronto, was identified by co-workers as one of the victims. Law enforcement and governments have programs aimed at countering other forms of emerging extremism. White supremacy. Now, with misogyny.

But most importantly, we need to address the toxic masculinity that lies at the heart of their hatred.

The "involuntary celibate" identity dates to the 1990s, coined by a Canadian woman aiming to launch a supportive exchange about sexual solitude, according to Taylor. And while Peterson, because of his anti-feminist views and his alt-light appeal, may be able to convince some of them out of their abject nihilism, he reinforces the toxic notions that underlie their misogyny. It's shocking and terrifying to hear that people are praising this terrorist because of his connection to the incel community.

REUTERS/Carlo AllegriFlowers and messages are left by mourners at a makeshift memorial a day after a van struck multiple people along a major intersection in north Toronto, Ontario, Canada, April 24, 2018. For now, the authorities are shaking their heads in disbelief, desperately attempting to make sense of what has happened.
