Today while having lunch at an Indian buffet outside Charlotte, NC I was reminded why I was so alienated from gun culture for most of my life and why I might never fully embrace it.
The connection between guns and masculinity, and between masculinity and anti-female sentiments has been evident to me my whole life. And regrettably my entrance into gun culture hasn’t altered that, though I do see many people in gun culture who are not that way.
The funny thing was that the driver was a South Asian Indian, and his two passengers were women dressed in traditional Indian attire. Proving once again that the connection between guns and perverse forms of masculinity knows no racial/ethnic boundaries.
