Why doesn't anyone mention that MEN are always the bombers/mass shooters in acts of terror?

The right and left media wants to divide us with speculation that this or that tragedy is the result of Al Qaeda or black or brown people or weird white geeks or crazy white militia people.

But what the media is ignoring is that ALWAYS it's men that do this shit. Regardless.

And doesn't that suggest that maybe there's just something wrong with men in general?

by Whoamynreply 10704/23/2013

Bitch say what?

by Whoamynreply 104/17/2013

Yeah, that's it. There's something wrong with every man on earth. You'll go far with astute insight like that.

by Whoamynreply 204/17/2013

You don't fucking talk to OP like that R2.

by Whoamynreply 304/17/2013

LOL.

Let's watch datalounge explode on this one.

Meanwhile Someone try to dig up all the the threads where someone claimed that some random woman failing at X mean no women would ever succeed in that field again.

by Whoamynreply 504/17/2013

Just as I suspected, men really don't like it when you point this out.

by Whoamynreply 604/18/2013

Well it is true. I'd narrow it further down to straight men in 99% of cases. What is wrong with them and why can't they control their rage?

by Whoamynreply 704/18/2013

From my casual following of the news, it seems like a high proportion of the Palestinian suicide bombers in Israel are women.

by Whoamynreply 804/18/2013

Oh please r8. There were about 2 or 3 women and hundreds of men. And you know these women were convinced by men to do it.

by Whoamynreply 904/18/2013

r7 is right. Our gay brothers are far too well socialized to engage in such acts. It's always misfit straight motherfuckers.

by Whoamynreply 1004/18/2013

Women do get together to plan bombings, but then they remember they have to leave for three hours to pick up their kids from school and there is no one left to finish the job.

by Whoamynreply 1204/18/2013

[quote]And doesn't that suggest that maybe there's just something wrong with men in general?

As opposed to, say, women who voluntarily haunt a gay male site.

by Whoamynreply 1604/18/2013

Well, you don't hear anyone referring to the bomber as "he or she," do you?

So true. Misogyny is killing us.

by Whoamynreply 2604/18/2013

Womyn never do this, because we shout "TRIGGER WARNING" before we shoot.

by Whoamynreply 2704/18/2013

Yes, there is a problem with straight men and rage/violence.

There are women and gay men who have the same kind of issues but very few.

by Whoamynreply 2804/18/2013

Notice how there was never any doubt in anyone's mind that it was men who did this.

Yet we don't talk about deporting all men, like we'd be doing if we found out it was an Islamic guy ("DEPORT ALL MUSLIMS!!")

Such bizarre double-standards.

by Whoamynreply 2904/18/2013

R28 is SOOOOOOOOO edumaficated and steeped in responsible research.

How about a list of LGBT serial killers, dear?

The point is not to denigrate us LGBT people, but to underscore that we are not different from the general population. Get that? WE ARE NOT DIFFERENT as far as actual statistics. But do note how many of the names are quite famous.

R31, you're a fucking idiot. Jesus.

by Whoamynreply 3204/18/2013

As long as we have a patriarchal society where war and pornography are viewed as acceptable, we will not get any better.

The problem is not men but the caveman bullshit that has been forced down their throats for ages. There are plenty of decent men out there, but they get overshadowed by those who still think dick measuring contests are a substitute for intelligence.

by Whoamynreply 3304/18/2013

Deport to where?

If you see a double standard, I can only infer that either:

men and Muslims should be deported men and Muslims should not be deported.

Also worth noting that the men who perpetrate acts of terror generally don't care whether their victims are male or female. Your example of "deport an Islamic guy" is simplistic- if a terrorist is an Islamic guy, based on fact, I am more inclined to believe the actions were carried out in the name of Islam than to further male dominance. As for the deport-all-Muslims mentality, I have never seen a demographic that has suggested that anti Islam is a male specific prejudice.

by Whoamynreply 3404/18/2013

R34, your inability to reason, follow simple logic or allegory, or even grasp the point being made by the OP and others is kind of amusing, kind of sad.

by Whoamynreply 3504/18/2013

OP, you sound fat.

by Whoamynreply 3604/18/2013

What's the solution, OP?

by Whoamynreply 3704/18/2013

No R35, what you mean is inability to accept without argument. The inability here is inability to get past the idea that men being the perpetrators means men are 'defective' and not look at the wider issues of oppression and conditioning of both women and men, by both women and men.

by Whoamynreply 3804/18/2013

But OP just posits there is something generally wrong with men.

I assume she's smarting about the Mich Fest thread, but who knows?

by Whoamynreply 3904/18/2013

[quote]The inability here is inability to get past the idea that men being the perpetrators means men are 'defective' and not look at the wider issues of oppression and conditioning of both women and men, by both women and men.

No, you're still missing the point.

Nobody is ACTUALLY saying that. They're mocking the constant "We know it's muslims" and the (actual, real, public) reaction of "KILL ALL MUSLIMS" right after the explosion. How people blame an entire race for things ... and how one event like this with a member of that race PROVES that prejudice... but nobody notices that they're all men (which is also true). Or when the guy turns out to be white, how nobody blames all white people.

Are you really this dense?

by Whoamynreply 4004/18/2013

This is a troll thread. Treat it accordingly.

by Whoamynreply 4204/18/2013

Actually this isn't a troll thread, r40.

I seriously think it's interesting how people are so quick to break down by race/ethnicity but not by gender when basically all mass shootings/bombings and attempted shooting/bombings are the work of men.

I thought of this while happening upon Rush Limbaugh's radio show for about 2 minutes yesterday afternoon while he was gleeful about CNN's not-yet-known-to-be-erroneous report that a dark-skinned person was arrested and how horrible it was that liberals wanted a white person to be responsible for it instead of a dark-skinned person.

Yet what I see as the elephant in the room is that the one common denominator among all mass shootings/bombings in the U.S. seems to be that men perpetrate them. And neither right-wing racists like Rush or bleeding heart liberals ever even bother to comment on the fact which I think is weird when at the same time people try so har to figure out what the motive is of people that do this stuff.

by Whoamynreply 4304/18/2013

The shooter who inspired "I Don't Like Mondays" was a girl.

plus SLA SLA!

by Whoamynreply 4404/18/2013

R43, breaking things down by gender is too broad of a breakdown. It's either a man or a woman. Sort of an uninteresting because of that.

Of course men do most of the violent acts in society. From an evolutionary perspective, that was a man's job. To protect land, family, food by any means necessary. A woman's job was child rearing. Division of labor. Obviously, those lines have blurred, or even been erased, thankfully, through modernization and rational thinking. But we're still animals, with instincts. Our lower brain demonstrates this over and over, even as our higher brain demonstrates complex thought, etc. Both are part of our human affect. Men, when threatened, whether that threat is real or imagined, or much more likely to strike out violently than women.

[quote]What is wrong with them and why can't they control their rage?

One word: testosterone.

by Whoamynreply 4804/18/2013

Men have an innate desire to teach people/society lessons...especially when they feel victimized. Women pretty much keep their aggression focused on lovers who scorned them, as well as their children.

by Whoamynreply 4904/18/2013

I don't know, R50. I kind of consider A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story to be one of the greatest contributions to television.

by Whoamynreply 5104/18/2013

R45, and breaking things down by race isn't broad? At least gender is an actual scientifically measurable distinction unlike most racial constructs, especially "whiteness."

But yeah you're right we're all animals. And animals like female lions hunt cooperatively while male lions hunt alone. Because the male lions are selfish douchebags that don't give a shit about their fellow species.

by Whoamynreply 5204/18/2013

Oh, honey -- don't you know by now that testosterone is the root of all evil?

by Whoamynreply 5304/18/2013

When a lesbian hates men, she's an asshole -- but when gay men hate women, it's justified.

The men who have killed their own children are so numerous it would take a lifetime to list them here.

And that doesn't even take into account the countless men who rape their own children.

But give up, ladies; men will never admit this and straight women have a vested interest in perpetuating the myth that men are stronger, faster, smarter, etc.

We lesbians are the only group who can see this issue clearly, and even then, most lesbians are too stupid or lazy or self-centered or fearful to face these truths head-on.

Testosterone (and straight womens' fascination with it) is the root of all evil.

by Whoamynreply 5604/18/2013

[quote]nothing of consequence - for good or bad - has ever come from a woman-driven enterprise.

Um, hello?

by Whoamynreply 5704/19/2013

Exactly, r5. I think that's what OP is getting at. It's a legitimate question - why are men considered individuals while members of other groups are considered representative of their respective groups? No one expects one man to answer for all other men's actions, but one bad female boss represents all female bosses, one woman "sets back all other women," etc. It's a valid observation that OP had, but it was met by clueless misogyny.

by Whoamynreply 5804/19/2013

Well, then, off to iVillage.

by Whoamynreply 5904/19/2013

It's obvious the most important thing to OP is this: And doesn't that suggest that maybe there's just something wrong with men in general?

He/She just wants validation of that point alone, to see the board agree that all men have something wrong with them.

Which is why he/she is somewhere between stupid and troll but not to be taken seriously in any event.

Was there something innately wrong with Ghandi? Or Martin Luther King? etc. etc. etc. etc.

by Whoamynreply 6004/19/2013

OP = Misandrist cunt with daddy issues. Thinks women who kill men are heroes. Trolls websites day and night looking for more ways to post her sex-based hate.

by Whoamynreply 6104/19/2013

women are not made to kill; women are made to give birth to and nuture male children, who will then grow up to kill

by Whoamynreply 6204/19/2013

Why is it that women always give birth to the people who do these horrible things? Come to think of it, women are often involved in the parenting of these bombers and mass shooters as well. How do you answer to THAT all of womankind?

by Whoamynreply 6304/19/2013

I always notice and am more suspicious of male strangers than ever.

by Whoamynreply 6404/19/2013

I don't think anyone who kills anyone is a hero.

Nor do I think all men are prone to violence, r61.

Nor am I a troll. I've been here since the summer of 2004!

I just happen to think there is some sort of biological/psychological/sociological connection between men and senseless violence, and that connection is much stronger than a connection between any particular religion/race/ethnicity and senseless violence that people (mostly men) are trying to push on us all the time to scapegoat a particular religious/racial/ethnic group.

by Whoamynreply 6504/19/2013

by Whoamynreply 6704/19/2013

It goes without saying a bomber would be a man. What woman could build a working bomb without killing herself in the process, actually get to her intended destination by herself, and successfully set it off.

I'm sure there are hundreds of woman bombers on our freeways right now driving 45mph in the fast lane with the parking brake engaged, lost, and plastering on makeup in their vanity mirrors. One day soon, one of them is bound to succeed.

by Whoamynreply 6804/19/2013

Misogynists have the unparalleled ability to twist even a clear negative into "evidence" of so-called superiority.

by Whoamynreply 6904/19/2013

Men make up a little less than half of the population but are responsible for a majority of violence. Virtually all mass shooters, terrorists, rapists and child pornography consumers are men. While men love to stereotype and marginalize all other groups especially women, they get angry and violent (what else) when asked about why men are so unstable, violent and angry.

by Whoamynreply 7004/19/2013

I suppose all the constant stories about women molesting teenage boys, shooting their husband in the back and murdering them, people like Crystal Magum, all of those women who murder their husbands and lovers and walk out of court free or get slaps on the wrists because they were having PMS, the serial murdering women, etc. etc. etc. were completely lost on the OP, who clearly has a hate of men.

Yes, more murderers are men.. Most are black men, but you wouldn't dare go there, would you OP?

However, women serve, on average only a third of the time in prison their male counterparts do.

A little context for your ignorant rant. Now go cover your head in your vagina cape and sob for your failed life.

by Whoamynreply 7104/19/2013

"I'm sure there are hundreds of woman bombers on our freeways right now driving 45mph in the fast lane with the parking brake engaged, lost, and plastering on makeup in their vanity mirrors. One day soon, one of them is bound to succeed."

I suppose the men who suffer from a "sleep disorder" and get away with raping women and yes, their own daughters, "in their sleep" are clearly lost on you who clearly has a hate of women.

Michael Moore ‏@MMFlint 5h

I guessed correctly. The bombings were not carried out by women.

at least somebody noticed!

by Whoamynreply 8104/19/2013

I read after some mass killing that women don't tend to perpetrate these kind of crimes because when they kill, it's personal. They want YOU dead. That's why they're generally not involved in these mass, indiscriminate type killings - they kill with a specific target & intent in mind.

I also think that women generally don't have the same sense of entitlement that men (particularly white men) Finally, I think women are taught to swallow their anger - though it's true that younger women are far more violent - and tend to act in more passive aggressive ways. That's not true of all women of course, but most.

by Whoamynreply 8204/19/2013

We just tease someone until they develop an eating disorder.

by Whoamynreply 8304/19/2013

[quote]. Finally, I think women are taught to swallow their anger -

If the sentence stopped after swallow, you would find less aggressive, and happier, men!

by Whoamynreply 8404/19/2013

Because women are taught to be passive. Surely you knew that OP.

by Whoamynreply 8504/19/2013

That's a good point, R63. Why do they care so little for their creations? Why do they abandon them to become these monsters?

by Whoamynreply 8604/19/2013

As a general rule, women have a tendency to internalize and blame/hurt themselves, while men have a tendency to externalize and blame/hurt others.

by Whoamynreply 8704/20/2013

OP >>>> Sexist

by Whoamynreply 8804/20/2013

Wrong, r87. Women blame others for their mistakes too. They just target those that hurt them, while men hurt everyone around them.

by Whoamynreply 8904/20/2013

Some women, r89. But I think the typical female is more likely to be violent towards herself than others. Girls in severe emotional pain are more likely than boys to cut themselves or develop an eating disorder instead of shooting up a school.

by Whoamynreply 9004/20/2013

You hit the nail on the head R63. So did you R88.

by Whoamynreply 9104/20/2013

R90. The same logic from R68 applies to shootings.

by Whoamynreply 9204/20/2013

"Why is it that women always give birth to the people who do these horrible things? Come to think of it, women are often involved in the parenting of these bombers and mass shooters as well. How do you answer to THAT all of womankind?"

Even for DL logic that is a pretty fucking stupid thing to say.

Last I checked, terrorists have fathers, too, involved in their parenting and the creation of these losers.

by Whoamynreply 9304/20/2013

R93 - you live in a very literal world, don't you? I wrote it. That was satire, not meant to be taken literally.

The crazy Chechens who took over the theater in Moscow in 2002 were mostly all women. They held 850 people captive

by Whoamynreply 9804/20/2013

R40, Muslim is not a race fist and foremost. It is a religion with a very destructive fringe cult that is murderously hostile to other religions.

Burying your head in the sand and constantly proclamining that not all Muslims are terrorists is not going to make the problem of the ones who are terrorists go away. The apologists always bring up the Christian Crusades to somehow legitimize what Islamists are doing. The Crusades happened in 1000-1300. This is fucking 2013. Join this century and deal with what's happening now.

Instead of giving Islam a pass (which nobody would ever do if the terrorists had been Christians, just imagine), society should be asking what to do about this problem because they are going to turn this country into a war zone.

One thing is to stop letting so many people in from Muslim countries. As their numbers increase we are going to have a worse problem on our hands. This is only the beginning. There is no assimilating the radicals. Media is asking why did they do this if they grew up in the States, as if they will love us once they get to know us. It's not gonna happen folks. Their values are plain contradictory to ours and no amount of appeasing is going to change it.

As for MEN being the perpetrors of terror, the OP is not wrong, and making fun of women is a distraction. The fact is that men are genetically wired to battle or hunt for survival and that instinct is not productive in a modern society. It has to be managed somehow. We no longer live in the bush where fighting lions and tigers is the way to survive and thrive.

by Whoamynreply 9904/20/2013
