On What Grounds Do Recreational Hunters Condemn Video Game Players?
It has been revealed that Navy Yard Mass Murderer Aaron Alexis was a 34 year old video game player that spent up to 16 hours at a time engaged with the electronic amusements.
It is for this rather than for killing 12 people that he deserves to rot in Hell from the impression one gets from a remark made by a midlist conservative commentator and podcaster.
But on what grounds does someone that goes out of his way to point out to the public how much that he enjoys hunting criticize someone that enjoys video games?
It is one thing to hunt to provide food for one's family or to keep in check a species that would otherwise proliferate out of control due to a lack of natural predators.
However, is it really a measure of one's masculinity to travel across oceans and continents half-way around the world to blow the head of an animal that one clearly doesn't need for sustenance?
In fact, doing so might cause one to speculate just how deficient in certain areas those having to display themselves in such manners might just happen to be.
For nothing shouts manhood like participating in an activity just because it is an expectation of one's peer group.
