“It’s the culture stupid......it ain’t the guns.”
pssst, I’ll let you in on another little secret that the lamestream media will never discuss:
Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, Jared Loughner, James Holmes, and Adam Lanza
Some from broken homes, some from nuclear families, some from money, some from poverty, different levels of education, different parts of the country, and yet one thing absolutely common with ALL of them -
No relationship of any type with the opposite sex.
The mind of a NORMAL 15 year old boy should be: girls, girls, girls.
Of course the problem with ever discussing this is the fact that liberals and the lamestream media are doing there best to convince everyone that not being interested in girls is just as normal as being interested in them (if not, how else can you make the case that homosexuality is ‘normal’).
But the fact remains: any teenage male that would prefer to hide out in a basement and play violet video games rather than be out trying to meet girls - ain’t normal. Somebody will probably find a reason to flame this comment - but I am sorry. Wanting to be around girls, wanting have some sort of relationship with girls, hell just wanting to walk down the street with a girl - it’s what we do, we’re guys. And being attracted to the opposite sex IS what is NORMAL.
Many people in this town knew that Adam was strange. Ask the hairdresser who cut his hair. Ask the people who he confronted face-to-face and never uttered a word. Now that they, and his mother, failed to get the help for him that he so desperately needed; now that 20 children have been slaughtered by a mad man; the idiots blame the guns.
Before guns are banned, the people of this town and all politicians involved ought to take a long hard look into a mirror and ask themselves if they could have saved 20 angels!!!!!!
So, the common denominator is that they were nerds, geeks, or whatever other name you want to apply to “social rejects”. That’s not really a revelation.
Also, it’s simply not true at all that geeks who hang out in basements playing video games, or D&D, or reading comic books, or what have you, are not interested in girls. On the contrary, they’re probably more obsessed with girls than your average teen, because they usually can’t get anywhere near them, so they can only fantasize about them. Nerds don’t want to be lonely losers, they just can’t get girlfriends, because they are nerds!
Durn tootin'. I'm in my 50"s and that's still how it is. If you don't believe me just call home and ask my wife! (I'm allowed to look at the menu, I just can't place an order)
No big deal. Wouldn't if I could.
But I don't think their lack of interest in the opposite sex has anything to do, necessarily, with an undercurrent of possible homosexuality or some sort of weird personality disorder. Perhaps they were merely socially awkward; perhaps, even, they wanted to do things normal 15-year-old boys do, like talk to girls/be with girls/etc., and the notion that their shyness or awkwardness prevented them from doing so increased their anti-social feelings to such a degree they acted out in such a severe, inhuman manner.
Just building on what you had there.
