Gloria Steinem: 'Masculinity is a mental disease'

Article here. Excerpt:

'When children die at the hands of white men with guns, it's rarely blamed on white men or guns. "It's mental health issues," they say. "He needed help," they insist. But one of the world's most famous feminists isn't having any of that. In an exclusive interview with Bustle, Gloria Steinem says guns and men are absolutely the reason there's such an extraordinary amount of gun violence in America. And for those who claim mental health issues are the cause of mass shootings?

"Well in that case, masculinity is a mental disease," she says.
"Guns are related to masculinity," Steinem tells Bustle. "The impulse to have a gun and the habit of buying guns is way more prevalent among males than among females, even though one might think that in terms of protection, it might be the other way around."'

Run up the curtain and joined the choir invisible.

Guess not.

Damn she's old. I doubt I'll log as much time on Earth as this nutjob will.

The moral arc of the universe does not bend toward justice. It bends toward neutrality -- on a good day. Most days it bends towards shit.
