Observation on School Shooting
the list of Connecticut school shooting victims an observation occurred
to me which seems to have received little attention or commentary.
All of the
adult victims were female. There were evidently no adult males
present at the school. The reports suggest plausible but probably
unverifiable actions by the female teachers and principal to heroically
stop the shooter. And as usual, rifle toting SWAT teams wearing
bulletproof vests and military helmets showed up only to escort
surviving children off the premises. Police did nothing to stop
the massacre. Security as Security Theatre once again.
What we know
about school rampage shooters like this one is that they are always
perpetrated by young males with poor interpersonal skills and no
emotional bonding. Most are reported as having few if any close
friends or any female friends or companions of any kind. In this
current case we know that this deranged young man harbored murderous
hatred for his mother, whose crime was enabling him to live at home
as a jobless, friendless loner and loser.
(government) secondary schools, particularly at the elementary level,
are overwhelmingly staffed by women at all levels. Probably on the
order of 90-100% (excluding custodians, who may not be on premises
during school hours).
schools are full of young children and unarmed women. While there
are notable exceptions (ex military, law enforcement, firearms enthusiasts,
martial arts hobbyists, etc.) most women have relatively little
physical strength, are smaller than most adult males and have little
or no capability to exercise unarmed self defense.
We also know
that most young adult males do not physically fear women as assailants
or regard them as able to provide effective self defense in the
event of attack (unless armed.) Psychologically many young men (such
as this shooter) are raised in single parent homes, usually by their
mother. At some point they lose respect for their motherís ability
to physically stop them from acting out.
establishment is largely blind if not approving of the near total
feminization of secondary education, particularly at the elementary
level. There is also monolithic opposition in many places to armed
security of any kind on school premises, other than in some tough
inner city environments which may have full time police.
So if you are
a deranged young man with "mother issues" and a disconnect
from humanity, where do you go to perpetrate your violent fantasy?
How about a large building full of young children and unarmed, defenseless
While it isnít
politically incorrect to observe that all of these killers
are male, it isnít polite to observe that a) many young men
disrespect women (in general) and b) aside from convents, there
are few places in most communities where adult men are not present
during working hours other than at elementary schools. And even
the smallest community has an elementary school. Since male coaches
are rare at the elementary level, even this male resource is absent.
there are other significant drawbacks to the near total feminization
of secondary education in America lack of male role models,
inability to discipline unruly children the most dangerous
one is what we witnessed in Connecticut.
the slaughter. While presence of unarmed males is no guarantee
of successful self defense against a determined armed young male
intruder, the fact that adult males are on premises serves as a
valuable psychological deterrent. In prior school shootings male
teachers and administrators were able to stop or mitigate assaults.
At least male presence brings forth doubt in a potential killerís
mind about whether he will encounter effective opposition to his
murderous plan. A young man will fear other (older) males in ways
he does not fear females. This is biological instinct. It cannot
be overcome by mere feminist "women can do anything men can
do" theory taught to young males.
uniformed security (usually male) mainly as a psychological deterrent
for bank robbers. Adult males on school grounds provide the same
benefit. Armed adults (of either gender, known to be so) would work
If you force
yourself to think like a crazed punk fantasy role-playing male bent
on blood drenched notoriety, you will want testosterone laden beef
on the hoof around your children. Preferably trained and carrying
firearms, but at the very least, visible and able to react. Otherwise
you present these evil (young male) monsters with exactly what they
want: weak defenseless victims as props in their real life nightmare.
has feminist orthodoxy exacted with the blood of innocent victims,
women and children?
