OK, you sucked me back in with your horseshit. How is it even remotely possible for women to be the abusers in 70% of domestic abuse cases when fully 1/2 of all murders of women in this country are those killed by their domestic partners? https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/07/21/538518569/cdc-half-of-all-female-murder-victims-are-killed-by-intimate-partners

Your “statistic” is counter-factual to all other indicators on that subject.

In 2010, the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that “more than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) … in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.”

Your keep saying that the statistics I cite are manipulated but you never give any proof of that other than your say so. I can give you somewhere between 10–20 sources that say that same thing, but you can’t give me 1 and I’m the one who is suffering from confirmation bias?

Perpetrators of sexual violence are less likely to go to jail or prison than other criminals.

Your assertion about why so few rape kits are tested is also factually wrong and you have provided nothing to support that assertion other than, once again, your say so. Meanwhile,

Records obtained from police agencies in all 50 states show:

• While attention has been focused on large metro police agencies, tens of thousands of untested sexual assault kits are accumulating almost without notice at rural and smaller city departments. Hundreds of rape kits remain untested in places like Muncie, Ind., Visalia, Calif., St. Cloud, Minn., and Green Bay, Wis.

• In most states and at most law enforcement agencies, there are no written guidelines for processing sex-crime evidence. Decisions often are left to the discretion of investigating officers, leading to inconsistencies.

I know this is all lost on you, but just in case someone else with a brain in their head comes across it, it’s here for them to learn from.
