I may have a limited imagination, but it never occurred to me that anyone would deny that the murders in Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church were racially motivated. I did not even think Fox News could be so clueless.
Similarly, when John Russell Houser opened up fire in a crowded theater showing Amy Schumer's Trainwreak, is it difficult to suppose that his views of women were a major part of his motivation? He kills two women in a theater showing a movie written by and starring a feminist who he would surely find threatening. Is it really all that mysterious? Should we be irretrievably puzzled, or is the hate crime explanation the most plausible? For a strong argument in favor of the view that we need to start enacting and naming hate crimes against women, see this excellent post by Elizabeth Licorish in the Huffington Post.
