No, it's not. Calling misogyny a mental illness is both insulting to people with mental illness, and minimizes how prevalent misogyny is in our society.:
1. Misogyny is mental illness.
2. The vast majority of people aren't mentally ill.
3. Therefore misogyny is the fault of a small minority.
Do you see the danger of that reasoning?
On The Trouble with SSRIs

𝐅𝐮𝐜𝐤 you, and 𝒇𝒖𝒄𝒌 the Independent for publishing this.
Was the Oak Creek shooter on SSRIs? Was the Overland Park shooter on SSRIs? There have been at least 62 mass shootings in the US since 1982: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2... —Can you link them all to SSRIs?
Of course even if you could that wouldn't prove what you want, because Rodger's actions weren't caused by mental illness alone—misogyny was an enormous factor as well. 14% of all murders in the US involve the killing of domestic partners, and in the vast majority of cases the killer is male: http://www.ovw.usdoj.gov/docs/dv-homi... —But sure, let's just pretend violence against women is a modern phenomenon resulting from mentally ill people seeking treatment.
