But what about the men? On masculinity and mass shootings by Meghan Murphy on Rabble. “’Caring, compassion, and empathy aren’t innately feminine characteristics.

Well, sometimes, apparently, they seethe. And without any other tools to deal with their anger and resentment, some men resort to violence.” (Thanks Suzie)
