Good thing this wasn't a Viewpoint

I was shocked to see this in my hometown newspaper, the incorrigibly liberal Boston Globe. Opinions like this are rare, even in the op-eds.

While male violence is universal, societies differ in their ability to channel that violence. With the right kinds of investment, male aggression can be put to good uses, such as winning the World Series and running hedge funds.

We are failing our young men because we have not made that investment. We have made our streets safer by incarcerating millions, more than 90 percent of whom are male, but we have inflicted a terrible cost on millions of lost boys.

What's next, arguing that it's ok to cheer for the "loyal sons" of Notre Dame?

The "sons and daughters" of Notre Dame were noticeably quieter today, wouldn't you say?
