    I think we can't avoid gender here and I do believe males have more of a killer instinct built in than women.

    I've always considered that argument a discussion-ending copout.
    How does one respond to that argument?

    I still don't think they have an underlying need to kill that they suppress.

    Maybe it's a power trip but I think little boys and young men enjoy killing when society allows it. I can think of no animals that kill for pleasure.
