Soraya Chemlay’s “Mass Killings in the US: Maculinity, Masculinity, Masculinity” aims to make sense of why women are more often than not the victims in mass killings and why white men are usually the attackers. She summarizes infamous mass killings such as the 1989 shooting of fourteen women in an engineering class in a Montreal university and the recent shooting that took place in a movie theatre screening of Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck.  She then continues to explain how all these shootings were examples of white men feeling threatened.

Hello everyone, I came across this video posted by Elite Daily, in light of International Women's Day.

After playing video games, a boy killed a 90 year old relative by shooting a bullet in her head. The authorities said the child was playing a particularly violent video game named Grand Theft Auto IV.

The boy found a gun in the house after playing that game and shot down the lady while she was watching television.
