York Professor Speculates Toronto Shootings Linked To “Hypersexualized Masculinity ” Blames Society

“I am not suggesting that the desire to own a gun is simply a form of penis anxiety.

“I don’t quite know how else to to put this. Gerretsen is an ass. This man though is actually Ontario’s Attorney General and that makes him the top lawyer, the top justice official in Ontario*. So his comments about gun bans and his justification are extremely dangerous.

It may sound harsh to speak of a politician like that but I’ve called some worse on air and that includes Conservatives.”
