Fox News 'Expert': 'Homosexual Impulses' Probably Triggered Calif. Mass Shooting

Reality television psychologist Dr. Robi Ludwig asserted to Fox News that a mass shooting in California over the weekend may have been triggered because the suspect could not cope with his "homosexual impulses."

Reality television psychologist Dr. Robi Ludwig asserted to Fox News that a mass shooting in California over the weekend may have been triggered because the suspect could not cope with his "homosexual impulses."

In a videos posted on YouTube, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger explained that he had planned a shooting rampage to get retribution on women for rejecting him.

"All you girls who rejected me and looked down upon me and treated me like scum, while you gave yourself to other men," Rodger said just hours before gunning down six people near UC Santa Barbara's campus. "And all of you men for living a better life than me. All of you sexually active men. I hate you."

By late Saturday night, Ludwig was speculating to Fox News that Rodger's gay feelings had turned him into a mass murderer.

"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."

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."
