It’s almost as if the only way CNN can get people to pay attention to them is by trolling with really stupid pieces … like this one.
Patriarchy is a social system that defines men as being inherently violent, dominant and controlling while rewarding them with power for being that way.

Because you know, only men kill people.
Patriarchy is a social system that defines men as being inherently violent, dominant and controlling while rewarding them with power for being that way. It is no secret, especially these days, that we live in a patriarchal society. Why are we continually surprised when a man takes up arms and commits mass murder?
Cartoons, video games and contemporary politicians exalt male violence. This glorification echoes in our sports and movies. When the right person is performing it or it’s being performed for the “right reasons” (think police officers or members of the military), people even call male violence heroic. So why wouldn’t angry, entitled men seek to rectify their qualms with the world through unimaginable carnage? Every social cue they’ve received since childhood declared violence their birthright, it’s what makes them real men.
US is not a patriarchy. Vast majority of men are not violent. Violent crime is at record low. Why do some young men become violent? Sociopathic personality disorder, drugs, gangs, fatherlessness. Gender studies jargon won’t help.

Yeah, that could work here.
Good Lord, shut up.

26 out of the last 27 deadliest mass shooters were fatherless. They needed more masculine authority in their lives, not less. https://t.co/z9tmNXkbFO

It’s seriously like the media and the Left wants all men neutered.
And you continue to pretend you're a real news outfit.

We need men to be MEN.
We need more fathers in this country, not less of them.
What a ri-damn-diculous piece, CNN.
Only a society stuck in a perpetual adolescence sees Patriarchy as a system that perpetuates indiscriminate violence against innocents.
Its actually a societal problem perpetuates violence when boys do not have good strong but peaceful men showing them how to behave.

Because we're not dumb enough to give women guns.

Patriarch is the male leader of the family. Matriarch is the female leader of the family. Don’t make it more than it is.
CNN going out of its way to show ignorance on simple thoughts

Well, Trump didn’t tweet over the weekend so really CNN had nothing else to do but write this crap.
I'm sorry, what? It's not enough to blame guns now? Now you need to blame "the patriarchy" ?????

@jordanbpeterson told me yesterday that everyone has the choice to use their gifts for good or for evil. Called free will. Stop making this a function of being a man. It’s a function of choices. https://t.co/BWfAIzbH3e

Vox rebranding as @CNN is pretty confusing TBH.

We were thinking more like Salon, but this works too.
