I am well and truly dissapointed in you. Here I thought you were a reasonable person. Half of women who are murdered will be killed by intimate partners (as you yourself noted); the CDC and the WHO both say that violence against women is an epidemic, 1 in 6 women will be raped or have it attempted, every week there is a new revelation about horrendous systemic abuse in the major companies of this country, etc., etc. but “Oh, the poor men! How they are being attacked and vilified!” REALLY? If that is the level of empathy and critical thinking that you are capable of in the face of all of this, I’m not sure there is anything left to be said!
