Default Re: Another Mass Shooting

While often ignored more people are starting to talk about the main component in most mass murders, Men. Beyond mental illness it seems to be the one similarity that is so skewed to one side there's no way it can be ignored, unless some of these same men are in power. There seems to be a heavy genetic component to many mental illnesses that impacts XY worse or in a different way than XX. I do wonder if certain violent behavior should be classified separately from other mental illnesses, as there are plenty of non-violent women and men with mental illnesses and some people that get violent at the drop of a hat.

Tragedies like these sadly mask the tragedy that this was a suicide that killed multiple people. We should be looking at what causes a suicide to become outwardly violent to others, but that would mean acknowledging suicide which the media is totally not ready for.
