Sooooo. My mom's boyfriend posted a response to the shooting today on facebook. His take is that the gun violence is on the upswing in the country because of the way we victimize men. Specifically, it was about how men think twice about showing children affection because of the way it may be viewed by others. And that's what's fucking kids up. Now, I'm not saying that he doesn't raise a legit issue here, but I think it's a bit of a stretch to link it directly to the recent mass shootings. We certainly can't say that the shooters were all raised in affection-less homes.
