    Default Your Thoughts on an Article

    @senza tema brought to me an article she found on the Newtown shooting and we have been discussing it at length. Then I began to wonder what the people at typec would think, so here we are:

    But what about the men?

    I think it is mostly a mental health issue more than anything. That article brought up some valid points but I think tried to paint a narrow picture with too broad of a brush to be effective. It seemed a bit more hateful than helpful. Now, if we could get all sides to talk without yelling and getting defensive (that refers more to the crap I see on facebook than the article) that would be more beneficial than any one opinion "winning" their argument.
    I'm never wrong, I'm just sometimes less right

    I dont think the media is ignoring it, although I think its a good point and worth talking about.

    Although its not something men are wired to do, if that's the suggestion, I remember people talking about how Fight Club was the greatest movie on "man angst" there ever was when I always considered it a story and movie about a guy who experiences a splitting in his personality and mental breakdown of sorts.

    Maybe spree killings will become another focus for this "man angst" (whether its women or men experiencing it) but I still think that the biophilis vs. necrophilis theories or blocked growth/hard hearted entrophy are the best explanations for these sorts of things, like Fromm's Anatomy of Human Destructiveness or Heart of Man.

    Its a problem with a lot of political but particularly gender comment and analysis.
