I just had the displeasure to read a disgusting editorial about one “brave” woman’s struggle to deal with her son’s “mental illness” by drugging him, putting him in therapy, committing him to mental institutions, and contemplating having him arrested.
On top of all that, she equates the violent outbursts of her son (a 13-year-old) with the actions of Adam Lanza this past week.
In fact, this psychotic narcissist titled her editorial, “I Am Adam Lanza’s Mother.”
I’m sure her son will feel very empowered when he realizes his mother wrote this article about him, saying he is the same as someone who killed 26 people including many children, and had it re-published all over the internet (including Huffington Post).
She never discusses trying to get her son involved with sports, or any type of healthy male competition. She lists his positive attributes as “High IQ… love of Harry Potter… snuggle animal collection.”
And not once does she refer to the boy’s father, or any male role model in his life.
At the end, there is an “About the Author” section:
Liza Long is an author, musician, and erstwhile classicist. She is also a single mother of four bright, loved children, one of whom has special needs.
I would say that all four of them have special needs.
They need a father.
If we continue leaving boys in the hands of well-meaning but incompetent women to raise them alone, oblivious to their natures and needs, we will continue the rapid decline of our civilization into an unstable storm of violence. When a boy is oppressed from embodying the full realization of his gender, he will rebel on the most basic, animalistic level.
