5 thoughts on “Psychopathology of Extreme Masculinity, Mass Shootings, Assault and Rape

    You defeat your own point by citing mass shootings of personality-disordered men. Why no women? Because women are different than men. The Marine who’s more scared of his unhappy wife than combat isn’t ever going to embody female qualities. He’s just going to learn to accept them in his wife. Stop trying to shoehorn men into women and women into men. We’ll all be much happier.

      Thanks for commenting H.W. Women and men may be different in certain ways, they have much more in common as human beings. Every human being that is healthy yearns to matter, to feel valued, to make meaningful contributions, to feel good about themselves and lives. A man that assaults or rapes or kills others is so traumatized by the beliefs they hold, and the experiences of witnessing and being assaulted themselves as children — that they’ve lost their connection, indeed hate everything that is human, even love to be hated, disdained, take pleasure in causing harm. Nothing natural or happy about that.

      By the way, the US Marine in question quickly learned, following that session where he connected to his fear, to give himself permission to feel and express his feelings, and to accept that a real man, like a real woman, is both strong and resilient on the one hand, and tender and vulnerable. He states he’s never been happier; their marriage now thrives. Letting go of irrational fears is a freedom like no other. Thanks for commenting.

    Thanks very much for your great posts! I recently learned about Neuron Mirror, and can’t wait to learn more.
    When it comes to shootings, here is a “narrow viewed” thought:
    What has CHANGED in U.S. for males over last ~10-20 years?
    1) At one point a TV was not allowed to show anybody die. The car could be crushed like a pancake, yet the man/woman crawl out before the car explodes. But they don’t die.
    2) Now it seems just about any kind of violence is allowed, and it comes in video games for young boys through adulthood.
    3) The action is much more realistic. It used to be cartoons when I was young.
    4) The TV/monitor is bigger, crystal clear, and lifelike. All I can think of is Neuron Mirror(s).
    5) There is little empathy in these games. (you mention the need for empathy as backed by science in “Empathy and violence have similar circuits in the brain”)
    6) I remember 10+ years ago a Brazilian woman who said U.S. TV is backwards. Sex is not allowed on TV but violence is.

    So to me this begs the question:
    Could violent TV and video games, through Neuron Mirror and lack of empathy, be the (or close to the) primary leading cause of WHY we are seeing these new “mass shootings”? If so, should they be banned?

    I would be very interested in your thoughts! And THANKS again for great posts!

    Single motherhood and toxic feminism lead to mass shootings, rape and assault because the vast majority of violent crimes are committed by men raised by single mothers. Single mothers compromise the normal psychological development of their children, especially that of their sons, by bereaving them of a healthy father figure and by constantly exposing them to the hysteria and misandry that are so typical of feminism today. Single motherhood = no dad = handicap = abnormal development of the psyche.

    And in order to find excuses for what toxic feminism does to children, we blame mental disorders and video games instead of going to the root of the problem, which is single motherhood. Whether a child is suffering from obesity, depression, autism, or what have you, the solution recommended to single mothers is always the same; stuff your child with pills like they’re candy. Any insinuation that the single mother might be the source of the child’s misery is heresy and as such the menstrual inquisition will want to morally execute you by labeling you all sorts of mean things (usually made up words).

    The truth is that without a dad, boys don’t develop correctly and end up becoming very violent and/or self-destructive. How is a single mom going to be of any help when the son hits puberty? How is a hysterical drama queen who hates men going to properly raise a son? And how are pills going to solve the child’s psychological problems, most of which are not organic but environmental stemming from the toxic personality of the single mother?

      Sorry to say truthhurts, but there is no evidence associating single motherhood with mass shootings, though there are stellar examples of men of character, success and high moral standing, such as President Obama, of men who have been raised by single women.

      In contrast, there is concrete evidence that those who rape, assault and commit mass shootings, most often men, have been exposed to misogynist men from early childhood, have unfortunately witnessed and experience violence and degradation of women, wives, children’s mothers.

      Misogyny is pervasive in our culture. Androgyny is not.

      The beliefs you express are myths, a form of fear-mongering, hate propaganda campaigns that promote might-makes-right values, oligarchic rule, and incite men (and women) to be against women, against democratic governance or shared decision making, and against common sense moral and human treatment of all human beings regardless of sex, age and color, and against diversity.
