Who gets locked up for violent crimes is not necessarily a proof of your assertion that "testosterone is a violent drug." There are lots of reasons why most of the inmates in the prisons are men. One of those reasons, for example, is an institutional bias against men in the criminal justice system. Saying that so many men in prisons proves something unflattering about men is anti-male sexism, in the same way that it's racist to say that the fact that blacks are disproportionately represented in the prisons says something unflattering about blacks. And before you say that "men have all the power, and blacks have none," let me head you off at that pass: It's highly debatable that "men have all the power." There's a big difference between power being in the hands of men on the one hand, and men having all the power on the other hand. It might be true that most, or even almost all of the people at the top who have the power are men, but it's also true that the overwhelming majority of the people at the bottom, who have no power, are men. This is why almost all of the dirtiest, and ugliest, and most dangerous, and scariest, and most violent jobs are done by men. Something like 93 percent of the accidental on-the-job deaths in this country are male victims, for example. There are LOTS more powerless men at the bottom, than powerful men at the top. Let's start focusing on the least among us, rather than the powerful few. And it's not like you, Thom, to look at an issue in such a superficial way. You don't do that on any other issue, so why do you do it on gender issues?
I mentioned Warren Farrell's book "The Myth of Male Power" in a post an hour or two ago. It's been 15 years or so since I read that book, but I remember in the prologue he said that gender issues, like all coins, has two sides. It was not his purpose, he said, to denigrate the feminists' side of that coin, but to call attention to the long-ignored OTHER side of that coin. Farrell is not a "male chauvinist pig;" in fact, he is a former president of NOW. I would not only like to recommend that book to you, Thom, but I would find it fascinating to hear him interviewed on your radio show. Just putting the idea in your head.
