I’m not sure what your point is, but it seems at least similar to @LotusBud 's point.
One thought both of you may have missed is that MEN of my generation have had the experience of growing up watching Audie Murphy, John Wayne, and others killing other people on the silver screen, sometimes in large numbers…and then being involuntarily conscripted into the US military and trained to do that same shit…and then, on this exact date 52 years ago (or some other such date), finding themselves in the position of burning their way through maybe 800 or 900 rounds of machine gun ammo which they were expected to direct in the general direction of said other people with the intent to kill or incapacitate them. And not just on one special afternoon, but more like several afternoons a week. Then, a year or two later, allowed to return home to a chilly reception.
In fact, here’s one of those guys here. Read his story before you go off on “MEN” without first recognizing that MEN are largely what the culture and society that was supposed to nurture them and shape them TURNED THEM INTO…and not really by accident.
