    • I think it's our screwed up society. We need to get back to men being men, women being women, and kids being kids. Instead we have women in leadership, kids being sluts, and men behaving like kids. I watched a video of Ariana Grande yesterday because I wanted to know at whose concert those kids were killed, and after watching one minute of one I couldn't understand that any parents would let their children be in her company for hours. I'm not blaming the kids for any of this: it's the responsibility of men to lead their families and the wider community. We need to man up and sort out our sick society of which this is a symptom.
