Elliot Rodger was half Taiwanese (mother is from Taiwan) and was referenced in Minassian’s FB post.
The 22-year-old Rodger (son of the Hunger Games movie producer Peter Rodger) became notorious due to a You Tube video titled, “Elliot Rodger’s Retribution” where he outlined his intent to kill men and women due to his sexual frustration.

What I find intriguing and unifying is that in all four of these separate tragedies, the perpetrator was an ethnic minority living amidst a predominantly Caucasian majority culture.
Ethnic minorities face immeasurable challenges in assimilating to a society other than their own and the sense of being a “perpetual foreigner” can pervade even the most assimilated individual when racist or invalidating comments are made.
Incels (short for involuntary celibate) have a tendency to gravitate towards activities that are less socially threatening thus online role-playing games and activities where your profile can be anonymous such as World of Warcraft are very popular within this demographic.
Combine this with their social isolation along with hobbies and interests that lend themselves to public mockery (again the ridicule of the character in for playing video games and collecting action figures).Lepin espoused anti-feminist rhetoric and physically separated men from women before killing fourteen women.He left a suicide note blaming feminists for ruining his life (This occurred before the term Incel was coined in 1993).Sex is not communication, it is not friendship and it is not intimacy.Yet, young men (or many men) are taught to believe that sex means so much more.And for some, they’ve also have had the additional burden of being ostracized for their ethnic background.Twenty-five-year-old Alek Minassian is of Armenian descent living in Toronto.But it also allows for a perfect storm of not only self-hatred but vitriol, rage, and a desire to inflict harm on others whereby victims can also experience first-hand the grief and suffering which Incels feel they’ve had to endure for a lifetime.This culture places high value on "fitting in" and being popular, above all else. It’s the fags like Rodger that have a personality disorders that put a bad name to incels.It is much more prominent in Western cultures and you can be judged in many ways, but sex appeal is pretty much what it boils down to. This culture places high value on "fitting in" and being popular, above all else. Any regular incel would have told Rodger to lower his standards and get over himself.FYI - I recommend reading "Aftermath" by Marc Lepine's mother. It is much more prominent in Western cultures and you can be judged in many ways, but sex appeal is pretty much what it boils down to. Excerpt: "I use the term “soul-crushing” because I feel sexual inadequacy among young men may be the most humiliating and painful in terms of shame, making them vulnerable to globalize with the feeling and identity of being a total failure." Sex is a physical act.sexual, social, recreational, and racial) but what’s different now is the collective shaming of an individual on a number of these fronts.In other words, the level of humiliation and shame is difficult enough on each individual level, let alone the collective toll it can have on a person’s psyche who may already be grappling with prior levels of shame before being exposed to the soul-crushing sexual shame that afflicts these individuals.Chris Harper-Mercer was biracial (his mom is African-American) and a self-professed Incel growing up in rural Oregon.
