Internet, 1993

Young men who haven’t figured out how to communicate with women, and end up murdering them instead.

The term was invented by a Canadian woman who ran a blog from 1993–2000 titled “Alana’s Involuntary Celibacy Project”. 15 years later, a psychopathic murderer named Elliot Rodger killed 3 men and 3 women in a rampage. Since then, it’s been feminists’ favourite symbolic bogeyman for their lives of oppression.
