View Diary: Domestic violence is, somehow, evidence that 'men have become second-class citizens' (36 comments)

  •  The rate of "violence" may be the same (0+ / 0-)

    The actual numbers of attacks between men and women may be the same, but when men are violent toward women they injure them far worse, and kill them more often. By what you put in your diary it's 4 times as often that men kill women.

    After all, they are including bruises and other injuries that are not life-threatening, or even worth going to the hospital for, when it comes to most of the violence from women.

    Not that the women wouldn't want to do as much damage as the men do (women can be aggressive too), they just can't hurt men as much unless they have weapons. The men can defend themselves more easily, by having bigger bodies and more strength.

    Women create the entire labor force. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sympathy is the strongest instinct in human nature. - Charles Darwin
