I don't know if this thread is the place to bring it up , but isn't it weird that there are no female school shooters, not even one. Why do you think that is?
And I have a horrible prediction that we'll see a girl shooter soon enough

There have been a few female school shooters in the past, the most famous one is probably Brenda Spencer.

Hm, why don't you think it counts? If you're not satisfied with that, you could just google "female school shooters" and there's a list. Smile

Really? I thought I tried that before.
Just tried ago and I see 5 incidents. So still quite a big gap.
As for 1979 not counting, it was so long ago (90's girl right here) and post columbine everything school safety related changed

I'm not even trying to be argumentative, but you said:

"but isn't it weird that there are no female school shooters, not even one."

I was simply letting you know that there have indeed been female school shooters in the past. There haven't been any in recent times, no, but that doesn't mean that its never happened.

Brenda Spencer was probably one of the first "modern" school shooters. So I think she certainly counts as far as the topic goes.

It seems that there have been several *potential* female shooters, but their plans always seen to be foiled well in advance. The thing about teenage girls is that they're known for running their mouths, bragging and letting things "slip". I think that's why there are significantly fewer female school shooters than males.

I think it's typically because our society teaches guys that when there is a problem, it must be the fault of someone else.  But we teach girls that if there's a problem, then it must be your fault. 

So girls are less likely to want to hurt others and more likely to want to hurt themselves via eating disorders, cutting, suicude attempts, etc.

Of course this isn't always true, but it seems to be true most  of the time. 

Also, the number of guys interested in guns probably outnumbers the amount of girls interested in guns.

yeah, i personally think its just a societal construct thing. a lot of men are encouraged or told its "normal" to act out and a lot of women act inward like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] said. our stupid society loves gendering shit and thats one of the things our society has done in gendering. making girls not interested in "masculine things" and making girls act out inwardly instead. although, of course, i do not believe this is right and people should just act and do whatever they'd like regardless of what gender they identify as.

Brenda Spencer is probably the most relevant school shooters of all. Its be a disservice not to mention her since not only was she a female, but she was one of the first modern school shooters.

Men tend to be more outwardly violent, while women tend to holdit in. Men tend to prefer fighting while women tend to self harm more. In terms of teenagers it has a lot to do with hormones as well.
