Newtown Massacre Was Women's Fault. School Was Too Girly.

Right-wing anti-feminist nutcase Charlotte Allen says the Newtown Massacre happened because Sandy Hook Elementary was just too damn feminized.

If only there had been some big strong men at the school, they could have stopped those non-stop bullets with their big hairy chests. 

Women are just so weak and passive, that's why those bullets killed them dead.

Charlotte Allen spews her disrespectful sexist nonsense over at the National Review.

The National Review should apologize to the families of the dead heroic teachers and staff at Sandy Hook, and Charlotte Allen should get some help before her internalized misogyny causes yet more damage:

But in general, a feminized setting is a setting in which helpless passivity is the norm. Male aggression can be a good thing, as in protecting the weak — but it has been forced out of the culture of elementary schools and the education schools that train their personnel. Think of what Sandy Hook might have been like if a couple of male teachers who had played high-school football, or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys, had converged on Lanza.
