Why are School shooters always male?

    I'm sure there must be some exceptions to the rule.

    I haven't googled it to find exceptions but I'm sure they exist.

    However, every school shooter that I can recall hearing about here in America has been male.

    Why do you think that is, and do you think testosterone plays a large role in it?

    (I remember living in a foster home that was a farm, and much of the bad behavior seen in bulls, was prevented if you removed their testicles at a young age. I'm not suggesting that is a solution, but interesting nonetheless how much having balls affects a mammals behavior.)

    Most are white guys.

    Columbine shooter was a literal nazi and media was too busy talking about videogames and guns because they were incapable of talking about racism for some reason.

    I'd imagine it's because social majoritys are the most vulnerable to reactionary propaganda & ideology. Nothing to do with testosterone.

    Like Seung-Hui Cho - Wikipedia and everyone at the Korean Presbyterian Church Abroad had an apology letter in Korean. Oh! Its a Korean doing bad things about Jesus. And Just in Case, everybody needed an apology letter, you know, on a crappy website, in Korean, its over there, oh. oh.

    At the foster home, Bulls would charge through fences, destroy property, and be very dangerous animals, but not commit any of those problems if their testicles were removed. What a cross to carry it is for some creatures to have bollocks :p

    Not only are they (mostly) male and (mostly) white, they mostly seem to be or have had a christian upbringing.

    As to castration, probability would work but a bugger to have to remove the testicles of every male to ensure you got every one who would turn shooter.

    An alternative method, perhaps as effective is change the law to guarantee that every school shooter will be castrated at the neck.

    I have a theory that White males have been demonized a lot lately. Maybe easy to feel that the world is against you as a White male.

    I live in the poor areas of cities so usually most of the shootings and crimes come from minorities, so maybe there is a link between different ethnicities being more likely to commit different types of crimes, and of course poverty.

    People find all kinds of reasons. The Korean shooter who shot up Virginia tech said Jesus Christ made him do it.

    White males are also more likely to be serial killers, but to be fair, statistics show that far more homicides come from minorities than white people in the USA.

    I'm not denying that poverty is a factor.

    The fact that Non-white males are statistically much more likely to be convicted for homicides in the US than white males, but white men remain the largest demographic of school shooters is evidence that there are much more relevant factors than just testosterone, no?

    These shootings are not just caused by emotional outburst, as these shooters typically have a worldview which they use to justify their actions in their own eyes.

    It's a very good question, and one that we should certainly be looking into (but mostly are not).

    Eric Harris, one of the Columbine killers, wasn't really a Nazi or anything in particular. He aimed his hatred towards everyone. He railed against both racists and non-whites in his journal. He was just a psychopath with a God-like ego who viewed other humans as insects.

    Yeah, that's not it. Most have psychopathic (sadistic and narcissistic) or psychotic (delusional) personalities. Some have a mixture of both traits. There are factors that exacerbate the situation and lead them down the road to violence. There isn't some clean-cut moral reasoning that Christians love to comfort themselves with.
