Violence in our society is a cancer

About the latest shooting, don't blame mental illness. It's not mental illness, it's society telling men they're entitled to whatever they want, and that if they don't get what they want, violence is the answer. In our society, violence is naked on screen and sex is hidden away, when it should be the other way around. It's a large part of the reason so many people will make excuses for someone who murders dozens of people but will be disgusted to hear about a man loving another man.

Because the cause is society, the only difference between the men who commit these crimes and the ones who don't is circumstances and choices. Give almost any man in our society certain bad circumstances in their life and they could just as easily make the same bad choice. And many of them would.

And don't think it's escaped my notice most of these shooters aren't just male, they're white males. White men are the ones those messages from the media and society are aimed at.
