News media label Toronto killer

a "misogynist".

After reading more about what motivates these folks, I think the woman hating term is not appropriate. This appears to be more more of what I recall from High School days when you had the "in crowd"and "out crowd". It had nothing to do with gender hatred but disappointment in one's own standing. Male athletic types were "jocks" and they dated the cheerleaders...or so it's told. The more studios ones or those who got the highest grades were "brains". They were also looked down upon by some. This is nothing more than the old "peer pressure" driven thing that's been around forever but is now driven mainly by social media.

IMO, we need to stop applying hate labels so freely.

they don't want a woman

they want a "sex doll" and that's the nicer term I used for what they want. They have no love in their heart, only resentments and lust.

Sounds rather coarse to me

But, of course, labeling and dismissing is much easier and less time consuming than pensive thought. The news is getting filled with people who go "over the edge" when frustration turns to anger. Some only hurt themselves but some take it out on others. So, do we just dismiss these events or do we try to understand them and seek remedies? I could imagine that these people, for reasons of personal appearance or other causes, fail to survive puberty and its social pressures. This goes for both males and females (as well as those who appear to fall somewhere in between). The survivors are those in happy monogamous relationships and those whose real choice is to not enter into such a relationship.

I could add that, the ones who remain only in lust, are the ones who never emerge from puberty. There appears to be plenty of that happening among the Hollywood types as well as among some in politics...including some of our presidents.
