Gun violence is gendered violence

They asked me would I like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him. –Former Vice President Joe Biden said of Donald Trump in a speech at the University of Miami.

This socially-conditioned male reaction to thrash it out – not hash it out – results in seriously troubling consequences.

Coming as it did only two days following another tragic school shooting, this time at Great Hills High School in Southern Maryland, it would not take a giant leap of imagination to understand why murder is primarily a male act. 90% of the murders when the gender of the perpetrator is known are committed by men.

In mass shootings, 98% of the perpetrators are enacted men.

The 17-year-old male Maryland school shooter critically injured his 16-year-old former girlfriend with whom he had “a prior relationship which recently ended,” according to the sheriff’s office. He also shot a 14-year-old boy in the leg.

Look at that. A pillow biting chicken queen, who sidelines as an attention whore. Obsessed with his lack of masculinity, and still trying to work out his rage because mommy and daddy didn’t accept him. Sees guns as a symbol of the masculinity he could never achieve, so he hates them, and the people connected with them….
