According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, the gunman who killed 10 and injured 13 others at Santa Fe High School shot a classmate -- Shana Fisher -- who turned down his romantic advances.
The victim's mother, Sadie Rodriguez, alleges that her daughter was the first one killed in the attack. [LA Times reporter Matt Pierce has since stated via Tweet that he's waiting for others to corroborate Rodriguez's statements, both on the incident and her daughter's prior behavior.]
The story has evoked passionate responses from those who suggest that toxic masculinity and the inability to accept rejection is why women have difficulty turning people down, even when they're uncomfortable.
