JOANNA WEISS suggested putting a stigma on guns as a way to solve the gun violence problem (“Stigmatize guns,” Op-ed, Dec. 23). Wouldn’t we have to solve another stigma problem first — the real stigma on men’s expression of feelings except anger?
People not equipped to sort out distress with another person may have to deal with explosive frustration. Women are often no experts at nonviolent conflict resolution. But at least women are not shamed for having feelings in the first place.
