What Is it About Men That They're Committing These Horrible Massacres? | Alternet
"Are these shooters psychopaths or sociopaths? Maybe. But what’s a sociopath? It’s a person who lacks empathy. 'Well,' says Katz, 'we socialize empathy out of boys all the time.' If we aren’t allowing boys to experience and express vulnerability, pain, and fear because that’s somehow connected to weakness (a feminine quality), then how are they going to be able to relate to the experiences of others? 'Sociopathy is the extreme manifestation of the way we socialize boys in our society.'"

much more worth a read than that other piece on "why wasn't there a MALE janitor at sandy hook who could have thrown a bucket at the shooter etc etc"
