actually we really only hear about white guys doing it.

school/mass shootings with fully automatic assault rifles have been so common in inner city ghettos that if there werent 3 or 4 kids dead on a weekend, people thought something was wrong.

its only big news when affluent white kids start doing it and politicians want a poster child to push their anti gun agenda.

having 2 x chromosomes isn't such a bad thing sometimes. It can make up for one being deficient or defective in some way.

That might have something to do with it.

personally, I think the fact that men are much less sophisticated than women. If a woman wants to destroy a person or an institution or what have you, they tend to be much more cruel and slow about it. They tend to not destroy it themselves, but remove a block or two and let it come tumbling down.

It's because males don't seek help like their female counter-parts for their issues they are raised to hide their emotions.

From what I have heard, mass shootings are often committed for two reasons;

ONE: Status or publicity and girls often seek publicity through looks, while men seek it through a show of strength or courage.

TWO: Unstable emotions and girls with unstable emotions usually find someone to help them through stuff, while men often refuse to show their emotions and accept help from others because they believe it could hurt their 'pride' as a man.

In my opinion, it just depends on your surroundings. I don't think gender has anything to do with it. It's just how that person grew up. Although you do have a point, i can't see a women ever committing a mass murder like the past one's we've seen.

I guess it's because that person had or is having a pretty tough life (think Gaara from Naruto). A life like that will really get to you. In the end however that person just has a weak will, and they only look for the easy way out.

It is because men are more likely to be physically aggressive.

What about the Springfield mall shooting of 1985? It was done by a mentally disturbed female.

It could be the fact men have been fighting in wars for thousands of years. Now most men don't go off to war anymore.

We don't exactly raise men to seek help psychologically, emotionally, or in general for that matter.
