Posted on 06/20/2019 11:26:03 AM PDT by detective
The Washington Posts latest documentary is focused on what they suggest is the role masculinity plays in mass shootings in the U.S.
The WAPO documentary opens by indicating their have been over 150 mass shootings in America since 1966 and all but three were committed by men. They add, And more broadly, the majority of gun violence in America is perpetrated by men.
Having posited men in such a light, the documentary then shifts to masculinitydefining traits and characteristicseventually placing masculinity at the root of mass shootings and suggesting current efforts to rein in masculine tendencies could be applied to limit gun crime.
The documentary lists traits of masculine as control, power, independence, [and] entitlement. They take these traits to the halls of academia for examination, with professors such as University of Arizonas Jennifer Carlson asking, What is it about guns that gets linked to masculinity? Or what is it about masculinity that guns address?

The message from the Washington Post is simple.
Guns are bad.
Men are bad.
Masculinity is bad.
So is an 80% build like a female transgendering to a male?
You know, add a barrel, snubby or longer.
Time to make prison sentences a part of the gun debate, as denying my rights should cost you your freedom.
Great idea! Why don’t we propose a Constitutional Amendment outlawing firearms ownership for women (meaning two “X” chromosomes)!
Gun ‘debate’? There’s no debate. They hate them, they want to destroy them.
Someone hold me. I’m feeling vulnerable right now.
How about being Democrats? IIRC, Adam Lanza was one, so were Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, and also the Denver movie theatre shooter, just to name a few.
The Solution is to castrate all men beyond a select few to be used as semen sources for the New Feminine State.
Pajama boy makes me want to punch Millennials.
Dont let the MSM fool you. The left LOVES guns.
... They just dont want YOU to have one.
Get in line..
yeah because by golly the founding fathers threw in the ‘masculinity clause’ when they upheld our inalienable rights with the 2’nd amendment
And then, as anyone who passed Statistics 101 knows, we need to avoid biasing our results. Where has "masculinity" wound up SAVING people, not just from mass shootings but elsewhere, i.e. rescuing people from burning buildings, shooting back (although woman can be just as "masculine" on that front), blowing up ISIS fighters overseas, or beating a former State Dept official in a Presidential Race?
This is beyond stupid...and it leads to THIS kind of nonsense.
Oh, here we go.
More Gillette-style propaganda commercials.
“They add, And more broadly, the majority of gun violence in America is perpetrated by men.
They add, And more broadly, the majority of...farmers are men.
They add, And more broadly, the majority of...cops are men.
They add, And more broadly, the majority of... firemen are men.
They add, And more broadly, the majority of... Soldiers are men.
They add, And more broadly, the majority of...truck drivers are men.
They add, And more broadly, the majority of... .
All are bad bad bad.
So, Bezos -- what about adultery? Is adultery part of masculinity? Thanks detective.
Yo, WashPo Reporter!
Go outside and look around. Every thing you see - every building, every street, every mailbox, every car, every airplane, everything - was built almost entirely by men.
But men also, at the extreme margin, also shoot people from time to time.
