What really bothers me about this case and how extensively it is spoken about is how, rather than tearing down the horrific family annihilator, people criticise his murdered wife Shannan or his mistress Nichol so much more. Even his mom gets picked at.
Shannan: The hate this woman gets is insane.. She was the victim. Her husband cheated and then murdered her AND her two babies.. They hate on her for being part of an MLM, they pseudo diagnose her with narcissistic disorder or say she was abusing him or had BPD. They call her an attention-wh*re because she liked to post on social media and say that made him "snap". Theres hundreds of youtube videos analysing her behaviour to call her abusive. I've read countless opinions about how "if the roles were reversed it would be fine to analyse the female killers motivations" but it WASNT. Family annihilators are predominantly men for a reason.
Nichol: People legitimately believe she was involved in black magic and made him (poor sweet quiet chris) do it or gave him an ultimatum to. They insult and belittle a woman who was being lied to about him "getting divorced" yes cheating sucks but the amount of vitriol she got landed her in witness protection.
His Mom: They say his mom was a narcissistic parent who is responsible for what he did.
Like FFS why is society so resistant to calling out men for what they do because theyre bad people. Why is it always a woman's fault?
