Your “study” is from a survey. And if you persist in denying statistics from government agencies whose sole purpose is to gather said statistics, I can’t really do much with that. It’s completely irrational!

Yes, violence against men is at epidemic proportions also, but it’s still not at the same levels of violence against women. And it’s not a contest!

The CDC does not base it’s statistics on who died under what circumstances from surveys; it analyzes data.

“More than half of female homicide victims were killed in connection to intimate partner violence — and in 10 percent of those cases, violence shortly before the killing might have provided an opportunity for intervention.

That is according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, published Thursday, that takes a close look at the homicides of women.

More than 55 percent of the deaths were related to partner violence, and the vast majority of those were carried out by a male partner.”

I do not know all the women you do, but I know that every woman I know has had some kind of experience and every woman I’ve ever talked to about this topic says the exact same thing. So, why don’t you put your money where your mouth is and go talk to all of the women you know and ask them yourself. It will open your eyes.
