Much of Elliot Rodgers video and written manifestos pointed to a frustration over women not finding him attractive as motive for the killing spree he went on Friday night near UC Santa Barbara that left seven dead including himself. But according to one expert on Fox News this weekend, it was his homosexual impulses that may have driven him to kill.
Dr. Robi Ludwig, a psychotherapist and reality show host, said her theories about Rodgers motives began to evolve the more she listened to his disturbing rants. When I was first listening to him, I was like, Oh, hes angry with women for rejecting him, she told Foxs Jeanine Pirro. 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 asked. But this is a kid who couldnt connect, and felt enraged, and wanted to obliterate anyone that made him feel like a nothing. Seconds later, she added that even though she had never had a chance to diagnose him in person, she thought he might have had early signs of schizophrenia.
When Pirro pointed out that Rodgers victims including men as well as women, Ludwig asked, Was he angry at the men for not choosing him? This is a kid who was just angry in general and probably felt rejected, he couldnt connect, he couldnt feel loved, he couldnt feel successful. Maybe he didnt feel like a real man.
Following those statements, Pirro wondered why, with all of the apparent problems Rodger had, his school did not do more to alert authorities of his potential for violence. She did not ask why he was able to legally purchase three handguns and

His first murders, in fact, were three men he killed with a knife. Let’s play Freud and call it a phallic symbol!
The parents of one of the boys STABBED in the house by psycho Rodgers called for GUN CONTROL IN AMERICA!! ..so says ABC 7 News. What a farce.
His killing was intimate with those men in his home, it was impersonal with the females he shot.
How does a 22 year old upscale, attractive Hollywood guy, manage his physical space so thoroughly around females, that he never even kissed a girl?
Lord have mercy.
Instant loss of respect in my book.
Any evidence in his manifesto that he ever ever liked boys??
He should have bought a casting couch
She didn't have to ask the question. He passed a background check. And 400 rounds is a good day at the range.
They’re having a feminist fit on MSNBC especially from that little sissy who looks like Maddow’s little brother, but weren’t all but 2 of the victims men?
One of the victim’s fathers just made a loudmouthed ass of himself on CNN, with a lot of encouragement from Anderson Cooper. This guy has been a real camera hog the last couple of days. He was spewing the usual gun control crap yesterday, but today he just keeps yelling about “solutions”. He’s really exploiting his son’s murder for a few minutes of camera time. I find it disgusting, and an insult to his own son and the other victims.
Can we make that a Twitter hashtag?
You just know the Perp’s Computer is full of Gay Porn, and Kim Kardashian’s Sex Video of course.
When I hear victims family members try to exploit their own tragedy for political purposes its when I lose respect for that person and don’t even bother hearing what he has to say..Yes, his son was murdered by a madman with a gun, that madman also slaughtered three people with a KNIFE..so does that mean people should not be allowed to use knives anymore because of this prick’s actions..the second I saw this father on TV the liberal radar went off I knew exactly what he is
Dr. Robis comments on the tragedy in Santa Barbara do not represent the opinions of Coldwell Banker. Therefore at this time we feel it best to part ways with her as our lifestyle real estate correspondent, Coldwell Banker wrote on Facebook in response to LGBT activist and founder of Memeographs, Scott Wooledge, who had contacted them to check if she was their spokesperson.
“Coldwell Banker just cut ties with Dr. Ludwig for her “homophobic” comments.”
No telling what kind of ties Coldwell Banker had with Dr. Ludwig, but it is frightening that a business would cut ties with a medical doctor for stating a diagnoses or even medical opinion of a virtual patient.
He didn’t want sex with a female, at 22 and with all his money, and with all the females witnessing him around Hollywood power, and with all the low key and obvious hookers in his circle, he was working hard to remain a virgin.
For the record, I think the guy was a frustrated homosexual in denial, but I'm no expert.
I read a report somewhere in which that father of the victim is identified as a criminal defense attorney. I’d like to get a look at his client list to see how many violent criminals are out on the street because he did such a wonderful job on their behalf.
For the manifesto and his YouTube rantings it's clear that although he got rid of his British accent, he didn't get rid of his britishisms. He would use words like 'exquisite' and 'quite' a lot more than most Americans would.
If he had kept his British accent he might have actually seemed cool to most Americans. But without the accent, his way of talking just sounded peculiar. It also might sound a bit like he was gay.
There is no way anyone should trust his manifesto, even though he begins it by claiming he will tell the whole truth. There are a number of important details we have learned about his life that are NOT in the manifesto. Whether he ever had any gay tendencies was not something he included in his manifesto.
Anyone who thinks that this guy was gay has pretty much got to believe that some people are born gay. Everything about his life, from what he claims in his manifesto, to what people have reported in the news, suggests there were no overtly gay influences in his life. He was not "recruited" or "turned".
If you think he was gay, then you probably believe all the unscientific and unsubstantiated crap that the gay lobby has been shoving at us about homosexuality being a genetic trait.
