I get my statistics from government agencies who study that kind of thing, like the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the Office for Victims of Crime (both part of the Department of Justice) and the CDC. If you think they are pushing feminist “kool-aid” around the seriousness of violence against women, there isn’t likely much I can do to convince you differently since you are clearly lost in a world of your own devising, completely divorced from the one that actual humans live in.

Same goes for the staggering numbers of men who are being harmed by toxic masculinity. If you are too defensive to be open to dealing with real issues in real ways, there’s not much I can do about that.
