Yeah, I think it would be pretty infamous since female shooters are so rare
There hasn’t really been any prominent female school shooters, so it’s difficult to say. I would think the media would treat it the same way they treat male shooters, with the whole “This promising young kid just went crazy all of a sudden!” and blame it on violent music, videos games, attention seeking, etc without actually trying to understand why they did it. Sad but true.
There really isn’t - it’s actually a lot worse if you’ve ever happened to read an article or post ANYWHERE on the internet about criminals in general.
If you just read the comments, you’ll see things like “I hope this asshole gets ripped to pieces!!!” or “They should kill this scumbag for what he did!” or “I hope he gets raped in the pen!!” And it doesn’t even really matter what their crime was - it could be petty theft to something as serious as serial killing. The response is the same. AND PEOPLE GET FUCKING CREATIVE ABOUT IT TOO, like, they’ll say shit like “I hope they dip this asshole in organic honey and feed him to thousands of starving hogs that haven’t eaten in months!!!” LIKE. WAY TO BE FRIGHTENINGLY SPECIFIC THERE, JOHN397 FROM TEXAS. THE FACT THAT YOU’RE OUT AND ABOUT IN SOCIETY DEFINITELY ISN’T DISCONCERTING.
I mean, like… I understand that these people are criminals and you feel strongly about what they did and who they victimized, but get a fucking grip, jesus christ, you sound EXACTLY like the people you’re admonishing, how can you not see this???
That same vitriol is thrown at anyone who shows even the smallest bit of sympathy towards any criminal - and not even sympathy, mind you, if someone says something neutral like “yes, but they deserve due process” someone else will inevitably respond with “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE VICTIM!?!??!?!?!?!? DID THEY GET DUE PROCESS???? S/HE DIDN’T CARE WHEN S/HE RAPED/KILLED/STOLE/etc.”
Yes, thank you, and believe it or not, that’s what separates functional human beings and their judicial system FROM THE CRIMINALS THEY’RE TRYING TO CAPTURE, PROSECUTE, AND PUNISH. The response isn’t to turn around and do the exact same thing, what the fucking hell???
And, in the spirit of showing humanity and sympathy for victims, they think the best way to make this obvious is to wish death, disease, dismemberment, suffering, and/or eternal damnation on the people who are either completely neutral to victims and their families, or who show sympathy towards the criminals. And to say things like, “I hope your family member(s) get killed and chopped up so you know how it feels” implies that the only way to empathize with a victim is to BE a victim - which then begs the question - who, in your family, got chopped up for you to believe you’re so much more empathetic to the victims and their families than me? You are no more capable of showing humanity to varied groups of people than I am, and my ability to show sympathy/empathy to criminals and their families does not mean I have no room for sympathy/empathy to victims or their families, or that I cannot possibly have both AT THE SAME TIME.
AS IF IT’S ALL OR NOTHING. If you show sympathy for criminals, it means that you are AUTOMATICALLY incapable of showing sympathy for victims and if that is the case, then you are either some sort of sociopath, or a criminal yourself who just hasn’t had the opportunity to commit a crime yet. THEREFORE, let me wish death and destruction upon you, you evil vile scum… again… in the spirit of being a good, caring, empathetic human being, because that’s what good, caring, empathetic human beings do… they wish death on people.
The logic… it’s totally missing.
There’s a difference between sympathizing with Eric and Dylan, and acting like they’re celebrities and kissing their asses and revelling in how quirky and unique you are because you have an unhealthy obsession with criminals
Hey let’s look at the word “faggot”, you homophobic. It’s an offensive word used to describe a homosexual. Now you could have used the word “gay”, but chose to be condescending, good for you, you dillhole.
Now, a lot of teenage boys are nervous about these things, and clearly he didn’t have any confidence and was bullied during high school. How do you think that feels?! Also you’re coming off like you scored many chicks in high school and as if you were fricking confident. If that’s the case, I can’t see why you’re anon.
And don’t think this whole columbine community condones what they did, but most of us can relate to them. So when you say shit like that, people will defend them and ask for your sympathy.
People like this anon are the reason that Dylan and Eric did what they did
Also I’m super sorry for not being very active on this blog lately. I’m still alive. Just been busy lately
