“There is some evidence for biological factors play a role, such as a slight association between testosterone a penchant for violence,” the op-ed states.

He also argues that social and historical factors point to the inequality between men and women in connection with violence.

“Thousands of years of patriarchy have led to a world in which men are air conditioned, have a need for dominance,” he said. “The anger that drives the school shooters often related to masculinity.”
