also shows why circumcision is a barbaric practice that should be tossed into the dustbin (sorry to all the Jews, Muslims, and North Americans out there), but that's for another thread ...

I don't think there is a problem with toy guns, but if there was a statistical link between toy guns > "killing monsters", then I would probably think it over.

Exactly. It all boils down to parents taking on the job of being parents and raising their kids to know the difference between all that stuff.

Anywho, I've never played with toy guns. But I did play the occasional video game at the local video arcade in my old town that involved people shooting each other. And yet, I never want to touch a real gun. I'd be so terrified to hold one.

Fair enough, but I still don't buy it that males are genetically wired to be more interested in guns and fighting than girls. In fact, females are much more confrontational and are MORE likely to engage in violent conflict than males, who are more likely to withdraw and would rather avoid conflict.

I'm hungry for credible statistics on this one...
