Everyone wants to fall in LOVE.
It’s a romantic fantasy to think that love lasts, because there are many types of LOVE and you can see all of those over here in the handy Wikipedia article.
I think, that the INCEL men have wanted LOVE. It’s been interesting to see the huge outpouring of feeling from both the male and female side post-Elliot and this tragedy — but I’m going to give you my take on it.
This is LOVE, defined as the Greeks did:
Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection (“I love my mother”) to pleasure (“I loved that meal”). It can refer to an emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment. It can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection—”the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”. It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals.
Ancient Greeks identified four forms of love: kinship or familiarity (in Greek, storge), friendship (philia), sexual and/or romantic desire (eros), and self-emptying or divine love (agape). Modern authors have distinguished further varieties of romantic love. Non-Western traditions have also distinguished variants or symbioses of these states. This diversity of uses and meanings combined with the complexity of the feelings involved makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, compared to other emotional states.
Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts.
Love may be understood as a function to keep human beings together against menaces and to facilitate the continuation of the species.
The INCEL men in Elliot Rodgers age bracket have lived in a time where they are INUNDATED by PORNOGRAPHY, no?
This is what you have lived with, and gazed and gazed at. So, EROS is what has been stimulated.
I’ve thought a lot of this over the last few days, watching things like this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2322703/Want-live-forever-Russian-billionaire-reveals-real-life-avatar-plan–says-upload-brain-hologram-immortal-2045.html

You know, I’m not sure that all the information you have gotten from the web HAS ANYTHING to do with REAL LIFE.
It’s unclear why you want to rage at FEMINISTS. I’m thinking you never got laid, and that is SAD. In order to do so? You need a text on HOW, and since I am probably THE ONLY HETEROSEXUAL writer, writing in my end of the GENRE pool? Maybe you can LEARN, like I learned from a couple of really fab male writers. One of those was D. H. Lawrence, who wrote “Lady Chatterley’s Lover”
(Which I read at 14, btw)
And another was Joyce — last few pages especially — the YES, I said yes, part…
You know — maybe you will have a lot of lovers in life if you make a bit of an effort to read. A little beauty never hurt anyone.
I sense that you feel in competition with vibrators? Somehow? I sense you may not want male toys?
You aren’t going to find those in my writing, per se. Really.
What you are moaning for is the DEATH OF HETEROSEXUALITY, aren’t you?
Well, I am one. Just like you. This day marks my fave Writer’s Conference and you might as well look at this:
My father was one of the BIGGEST pornographers in Hollywood. How would you like that for a childhood? My mother left him when I was 13, and that was that.
I plan on trumping him, and the lack of FATHER I had to suffer in my own life. By making something GORGEOUS, and it is all about the men I loved, because believe me there was more than one. Funny thing how life happens, huh?
Now I suggest you WISH that I get the right literary agent this week, so that my own work gets made into beautiful films for you to watch.
Instead of stewing in your toxic little brew about not getting LAID, maybe you ought to read people WHO HAVE?
Feminism has to do with getting an education, you know? It does. It did. That taught me HOW TO WRITE!
But I know you are jonesing for a story.
Want a first kiss, from madly in LOVE?
from Adrienne who has VERY LARGE DEGREES from VERY GOOD SCHOOLS!
Here is the thing with LOVE. It takes all kinds to make this world go round — it really does. It’s up to you to FIND SOME.

Knock yourself out with some QUALITY, because it is Literary Erotica and while you are at it?
You can hear something fab about the new book I’m in from my editor: http://talusorscree.com/2014/05/29/shawna-kenneys-little-rascals-mentality/
