Remember Charlotte Allen, the conservative opinion-haver who suggested that the problem with Sandy Hook was that the school was too “feminized” and there weren’t enough ‘husky’ 12-year-olds to pile onto Adam Lanza? Yes, her actual suggestion to stop school shootings is to pile children on the shooter until he runs out of ammo (which suggestion will certainly enliven her next parent-teacher evening).
Well, she’s back, and she’s doubling down:
I am also responding to David Weigel, who told me I gotten my facts wrong: that there are actually two men, a custodian and a fourth-grade teacher, on Sandy Hook’s 52-person staff. He’s right, and I stand corrected. This does help prove my point, though: just two adult men in a building containing 500 people — and it’s not clear that both of them were at work that day. Indeed, a visit to Sandy Hook’s staff website is a depressing experience, the sea of women’s names. Why aren’t there more men? Perhaps not enough want the job? But why? Because they are tacitly discouraged from careers in elementary education? It’s certainly not the money, because union rules typically require kindergarten teachers and high-school chemistry teachers to be paid on exactly the same salary scale. Another depressing page on the Sandy Hook website is the “Safe Schools Climate” page. It’s a page of links to “anti-bullying” resources. Yes, the Sandy Hook staff’s idea of a “safe school” was a school where kids didn’t say mean things about each other on Facebook! The Sandy Hook massacre was a tragedy, but it was at least in part a tragedy of the collision between feminist delusions and reality.
In case you’re wondering who this crazy woman is, Jezebel has a round-up of her greatest hits. And, like most feminists, it aint pretty.
