You read stuff like this and you just know it had to come from some idiotic conservative with their head firmly placed up his or her ass where the last vestiges of male superiority syndrome reside. Via ThinkProgress:
There was not a single adult male on the school premises when the shooting occurred. In this school of 450 students, a sizeable number of whom were undoubtedly 11- and 12-year-old boys (it was a K–6 school), all the personnel — the teachers, the principal, the assistant principal, the school psychologist, the “reading specialist” — were female. There didn’t even seem to be a male janitor to heave his bucket at Adam Lanza’s knees. Women and small children are sitting ducks for mass-murderers. The principal, Dawn Hochsprung, seemed to have performed bravely. According to reports, she activated the school’s public-address system and also lunged at Lanza, before he shot her to death. Some of the teachers managed to save all or some of their charges by rushing them into closets or bathrooms. But in general, a feminized setting is a setting in which helpless passivity is the norm. Male aggression can be a good thing, as in protecting the weak — but it has been forced out of the culture of elementary schools and the education schools that train their personnel. Think of what Sandy Hook might have been like if a couple of male teachers who had played high-school football, or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys, had converged on Lanza.
Wonderful. Apparently, in this person’s mind, the laws of physics cease to exist when it comes to bullets and males who played high-school football. Same goes with husky 12-year-old boys. Bullets just bounce off these two groups of superior beings. Also note that the writer insinuates that a female janitor would have lacked the courage and/or strength to “heave” a bucket at the shooter.
Seriously, what the hell is wrong with these people? How warped can their minds be that they’re willing to look at every possible reason for Adam Lanza’s shooting spree other than the one that says that maybe, just maybe, semi-automatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition clips should not be in the hands of anyone except people in the military?
They blame the lack of God and prayer in schools, mental illness, too few first grade teachers carrying concealed weapons, bad parenting, video games, Hollywood, President Obama and an absence of males in elementary schools guarding weak and helpless women and children as valid reasons as to why mass shootings occur. What about the actual weapons that can fire off numerous rounds at a single click of the trigger? What part do these people think they play in this sordid tale of carnage?
None. Absolutely none…except their belief that if there were even more guns available life would be better.
These ignorant jackasses sicken me.
