[OP of "[Serious] I look up to Elliot Rodger more the more I know about him, and most importantly, the more I think about roping"]
I used to be mostly joking when I posted about Him, kinda like half serious but exaggerating for the laughs or to piss off ITers.
But to be honest He actually is a hero that has been isolated and denied a normal life by society, and after giving them several chances and trying His best to no avail, decided to, in his words, strike back. Just reciprocate, it's others who started it by treating Him that way. That's the Day of Retribution. On the Day of Retribution, people who would bully or ignore Him, were scared of Him instead, and He gave them as much mercy as he had been given throughout his life.
Not only this, but if you've ever seriously thought about the rope, let alone going ER which I've already decided I won't do but takes even more courage, you'll realize just how brave Elliot Rodger was. Suicide sounds easy, we hear a lot of people do it, it's even known as "the easy way out", but it is actually very scary, and thus usually done only by a small percentage of people whose life is just suffering, and as quick and easy as possible. What Elliot did was very special because he carried out his Retribution knowing he'd die after, and then actually did go through with it (as opposed to just going to jail like other shooters).
His family sucked and is the main reason He suffered so much, but throughout His manifesto He tries to see the best in them and keeps giving them chances to be nice to him. He should've killed his fucking cuck of a father's wife, that would've been so epic. It's a shame that the Day of Retribution didn't go as planned, but he's still based for what he did and for what he had in mind.
In the manifesto, Elliot doesn't let others tell him He's inferior to other people or deserves less, He knows what he wants and what he rightfully deserves, and doesn't take no for an answer. He's mistreated by His family, discriminated for his ethnicity and for his looks, and yet doesn't give up and tries until the end to live the life he dreamed of.
He very bravely wrote:
I was never going to lose my virginity; I was never going to experience love and sex; I was never going to have children. This final act of Retribution is the only thing I could do. It was very hard to come to terms with this fact. I felt very trapped and lost.
And also, the very day before dying He wrote:
Why do things have to be this way? I’m sure that is the question everyone will be asking after the Day
of Retribution is over. They will all be asking why. Indeed, why? That is the question I’ve had for
everyone throughout all my years of suffering. Why was I condemned to live a life of misery and
worthlessness while other men were able to experience the pleasures of sex and love with women?
Why do things have to be this way? I ask all of you.
