    College newspaper blames Florida school shooting on 'toxic masculinity'

    Reserving my comments until further info is available...

    Indiana college newspaper blames FL school shooting on toxic masculinity

    A controversial Indiana University student editorial blames the Parkland shooting that killed 17 on “toxic masculinity.”

    The Indiana Daily Student op-ed, looking at the history of mass shootings in America since Columbine in 1999, concluded there is one thing they all have in common: gender.

    “When such a pattern emerges from decades of data, it’s time to have a conversation about masculinity and male violence,” the students argue. “We need to make comprehensive efforts to avoid reproducing the same masculinity in the next generation of boys that increases the likelihood of these atrocities.”

    Sounds like a half-baked theory invented by a graduate student. Or someone wrote an editorial about the causes of sexual harassment and then were told they had to write an editorial about shootings, so they just switched their premise to that problem.

    "Toxic Masculinity" is being discussed and debated in that age group.

    This is literally the dumbest shit I've read in a while.

    Social and historical factors can probably explain much of the disparity between sexes when it comes to violence. Thousands of years of patriarchy have led to a world in which males are conditioned to have a need for dominance.
    Toxic masculinity has an effect on gun culture - Indiana Daily Student

    Boys need to be taught how to express their anger appropriately and healthily. Additionally, boys shouldn’t be socialized to pursue dominance over others as a way of affirming their masculinity.
    Sure, let's further emasculate young boys, let me know how that works out for you.

    Everyone should just be androgynous, that will solve school shootings.

    An interesting take.

    I had an insight that I wanted to share.

    You hear the phrase, "toxic masculinity" thrown around a lot. Here's a useful definition, thanks to geekfeminism's wiki:

    socially-constructed attitudes that describe the masculine gender role as violent, unemotional, sexually aggressive, and so forth.

    Physically violent
    Unemotional
    Sexually aggressive.
    That sums it up pretty well.

    Here's the thing: feminists got it wrong. "Toxic masculinity" is not a social construct. Rather, it's the uninhibited expression of base male biological urges: fighting, dominating, and fucking. "Toxic masculinity" isn't taught; it's within us. It's the animal inside every man. If another man mocks you publicly, and you can feel a desire to pound his face into the ground, that's your inner animal.

    "Toxic masculinity" is just another way of referring to the Male Animal.

    Without morality or higher-level thinking, what are males? Physically violent, competitive, and sexually aggressive.

    Competitiveness can be harnessed in a useful way, but most of these traits we discourage because they're destructive; they're at odds with civilization and order.

    What is conspicuously lacking from the discourse is any discussion of the Female Animal.

    This is the void that TRP fills. Many words are spent here describing the female animal, and consensus seems to be that they are the Yin/Yang of the male animal traits:

    Socially violent
    Overly emotional
    Sexually manipulative
    When two boys fight on the playground, their goal is to subdue the other boy and win the altercation. When two girls fight on the playground, their goal is to make the other girl cry publicly. That is social violence. If you dump your girlfriend, and she spreads lies about you on Facebook, that is social violence. If a woman induces a man to fight another man, that's social violence.

    To summarize: there is an animal within us all. We have cognition and higher-level thinking processes, but these are layered on top of the more base-level instincts we possess. Feminists and Progressives perpetuate a disgusting half-truth when they rant about the Male Animal, all the while pretending the Female Animal does not exist.

    Misogyny? No, just fairness.

    Men are idiots - sometimes even criminal idiots - that's nothing new. What about the idea only to allow women to play with guns? Then men, who like to play with guns, would either be under control of women - or without guns.
