And I think you've inspired another (somewhat shorter) post. I should have it up this evening, I hope.

It boils down to that differential between "violent and predatory" and "violent but protective." In both cases there's a willingness to exercise violence. That willingness is, I think, a genetic component of young males - the difference is in how those young males are, for want of a better term, "socialized." Ideally you want the Gary Cooper High Noon model, but I'll settle for people who are eager, but clear on the difference between "violent and predatory" vs. "violent but protective."
