Psychologist Dr. Robi Ludwig, appearing on a Fox News panel discussing Elliot Rodger‘s mass shooting said that the incident may have been triggered over the killer’s “homosexual impulses.”
Could the mass shooting really have been caused by homosexual impulses? Comment below!
“When I was first listening to him, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s angry with women for rejecting him,’” Ludwig recalled. “And then I started to have a different idea: Is this somebody who is trying to fight against his homosexual impulses?’”
“Was he angry with women because they were taking away men from him?” she continued. “But this is a kid who couldn’t connect, and felt enraged, and wanted to obliterate anyone that made him feel like a nothing.” source
Ludwig later declared that Roger’s could have been “angry at the men for not choosing him.”
“This was just a kid that was angry in general. He probably felt rejected, he couldn’t connect, he couldn’t feel loved, he couldn’t feel successful. Maybe he couldn’t even feel like a real man.”
