#YesAllPregnantWomen

If you happen to be a Twitter junkie, over the weekend you likely didn’t make it far before running into the #YesAllWomen hashtag. For those of you playing the home game, or are otherwise wise enough–at least in this instance–to forgo social media all together, a brief recap: Friday evening, Elliot Rodger, 22, killed six people in a rampage near the University of California at Santa Barbara campus after vowing “retribution” for women’s apparent lack of romantic interest in him. By the next day, before the bodies of the dead had even been given time to relax of their rigors, incensed feminists and others churned up the fires of outrage by way of #YesAllWomen, in which the mentally-addled evil of one socially-deprived man-child evolved somehow into an indictment on that ever-present though just-below-the-surface, nagging, brutish, ancient, misogynistic male hegemony. It’s not enough for murder to be the fault of the murderer. No, it’s has to be all of our fault. Don’t bother leaving your house tomorrow, ladies. We’re out to get you/Michael Haugen, Right Argument. More here.
