Headline of the Day: “Feminism Kills 27 at US High School”

"feminism kills 27 at us high school"

Um, not quite…Anyway, this is some MRA parody level bullshit:

Today the world struggles to answer one question about Adam Lanza’s killing spree: Why?

As with many easy questions deliberately confused by the establishment, the answer is simple and in plain view.

‘Feminism’ killed 20 children and 7 adults at Sandy Hook school – not guns, not lack of ’support’ or ‘care’, and definitely not ‘evil’ DNA

Adam Lanza went from being relatively happy, highly intelligent, and a little insular to actively psychopathic after his mother threw his father out of their home.

And if there is one theme common to school killings that is precisely it: the absence of a strong father-son bond.

And while there is absolutely no reason to care one iota about what the Cornwall Community News thinks, you’ll remember that failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney made basically the same argument this election season. Remember that? So, again, for the record: You can’t blame gun violence on single mothers. While we’re at it: You can’t blame divorce on women. And as for feminism? I mean, please.

    This is particularly offensive if you look at an incident like the Montreal Massacre, where the gunman stated that he hated feminists before opening fire (and killed fourteen womyn — only womyn, because they were womyn). My skin crawls.

    Sandy Hook is an elementary school. Adam Lanza was an adult man and 17 when his parents divorced. I realize those are minor points but I can’t even stand to address the rest of this BS.
