When a male does it no one bats an eye. When a female does it everyone loses their minds.

I think its been said, but in most societies women are expected to seek support while men should suck it up and be men. Its so deep-rooted in masculinity to handle it like men that its hard to address it effectively. Whatever is told to the contrary in a classroom or a counseling session gets unlearned in day-to-day life quite fast, esp say in an inner-city, blue-collar environment.

Females do kill, but less. If you ever watch Oxygen there is a show called "Snapped".Sad but true.

Good Question.

Because males are always told to "suck it up" . We are not allowed to cry. And honestly hearing this hurts.
Alot of guys go through alot of crap that leads to agression. Like going to war. Alot of us don't have an escape like women do.
Alot of us just bottle our feeling inside. Myself included.
Only to explode or snap later down the road.
Or the anger leads to sickness and illness.

I find alot of women to be very talkative. While most guys like myself are very reserved. most guys never complain about anything.
"I bottle my feelings until I don't"
"I don't complain until I do" haha.

But anyways, the pressure to met the standard of masculinity is real, but the post sounds like
"I beat the shit out of people because my feels"

What do else do you expect. Men have been viewed as the dependent for women for a long time. If they end up losing something of high value (family, business, ect.) the stress can eventually crack. Good thing times are changing and both roles are more likely to help each other out.

It's mainly because of the way our society views gender and guns that mostly males commit mass shootings. Most of the time, guns are viewed as a more masculine thing. You see it all the time on TV. Sure, there are women on TV who use guns, but think about the ratio of men to women in terms of gun use. In a single action movie where there are women using a gun, how many are there, compared to the number of men with guns?

Males tend to be more violent, and also have a higher tendency to not receive help for mental illness.

It is mainly a problem of how we view those with mental illness. If we stop treating everyone with an illness as either weak or crazy, then more people would be more willing to receive help.

It is the same reason male suicide rates are higher. They receive less help.


Very glad you touched upon this subject. Much agreed.
