The Post-Newtown Stupidity And Stereotyping Champion

Meet Charlotte Allen, posting for the conservative National Review, and called out for these gems:

There was not a single adult male on the school premises when the shooting occurred. In this school of 450 students, a sizeable number of whom were undoubtedly 11- and 12-year-old boys (it was a K–6 school), all the personnel — the teachers, the principal, the assistant principal, the school psychologist, the “reading specialist” — were female.
There didn’t even seem to be a male janitor to heave his bucket at Adam Lanza’s knees. Women and small children are sitting ducks for mass-murderers. The principal, Dawn Hochsprung, seemed to have performed bravely...
Some of the teachers managed to save all or some of their charges....But in general, a feminized setting is a setting in which helpless passivity is the norm.

helpless passivity is the norm???????
This is so far from truth. I work in a school that is mostly female with a few males and I can tell you that the women I work with are far from passive. They are strong assertive women who would without hesitation defend their students without regard for their own lives. I have never met a passive teacher.

absolutely 100% correct! A woman precipitated this tragedy by giving a mentally retarded psychopath guns and violent video games. Society needs a strong, calm, male presence; too bad nobody has the balls to come out and say it.
