@新浪新闻视频: American University Student Shoots Dead 6 People and Commits Suicide Because He’s 22 Years Old and Still a Virgin — Last night Beijing time, a shooting occurred at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The suspect was a student of the school, Elliot Rodger, who recorded a video before the incident: “I’m 22 years old and I’m still a virgin […] College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure […] You girls have never been attracted to me [… ] I will punish you all for it.”

Chinese subtitles of Elliot Rodger's Retribution video.

The above Chinese subtitles are translations of this part of Elliott Rodger’s Retribution, his last video on his YouTube account:

For the last eight years of my life, ever since I hit puberty, I’ve been forced to endure an existence of loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires all because girls have never been attracted to me. Girls gave their affection, and sex and love to other men but never to me.

I’m 22 years old and I’m still a virgin. I’ve never even kissed a girl. I’ve been through college for two and a half years, more than that actually, and I’m still a virgin. It has been very torturous. College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. Within those years, I’ve had to rot in loneliness. It’s not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It’s an injustice, a crime, because… I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m the perfect guy and yet you throw yourselves at these obnoxious men instead of me, the supreme gentleman.

Comments from Sina Weibo:


It wasn’t until I was 27 that I first touched a woman, and it was only by spending money hiring a prostitute, but did I ever think of killing people [because of it]?


He looks quite handsome, why not find a boyfriend?


A 32-year-old virgin floats by…


It wasn’t until I was 26 that I escaped being a virgin and I’ve never killed anyone, except quite a lot of descendents [sperm, from a lot of masturbation]…


I really want to upvote all of the virgin guys in the comments.


A mass murdering “gentleman”? If there wasn’t something wrong with him, how could he not be liked by others? The facts prove that those girls were right in their evaluations of him, which is that he’s full of himself, and nothing more than excessively self-absorbed and self-centered bastard.


Talk about not seeing the big picture, you’re just 22, I’m 28, and still…


Why not try finding a boyfriend? [呵呵]


I’m already 24 years old, you all better watch out…


I’m 24 and still a virgin. Am I also supposed to punish [people]? And then kill myself? [生病][生病][生病]


His name is Elliot Rodger, the son of Hunger Games Assistant Director Peter Rodger, a rich second generation, with a BMW and mansion. Go to China and there would be countless girls fighting to let you have sex with them.


It is precisely because you are a virgin that no one likes you! Like me, I prefer guys with experience.


Sigh, I’m pretty much like you, but where I beat you is that my dormmate saved me in my 23rd year.


I’m 26 and still a virgin [girl]. That doesn’t mean I have no charm [am not attractive], it’s called knowing my bottom line and being responsible.


Someone born in 1991 and still a virgin who still hasn’t had his first kiss floats by~


Bring out all the 22-year-olds who are still virgins, let them kill six people each, and the human race on earth will probably be extinguished.


In today’s world, as long as you are capable and have talent, there’s no reason to fear girls not wanting you. You’re just 22 years old and still a virgin, whereas I was still a virgin [girl] up until I was 27! If you can make it till you’re 30 and have some success in your career, then wouldn’t there be a line of girls behind your ass chasing after you? Talk about not seeing the big picture!!!
