“30% of Women Killed Are Murdered By Their Boyfriends or Husbands”

 

Tell me what you think of this statement.

Regardless, I don't think it matters. My belief is that it is heinously wrong for EITHER WOMEN or MEN to be killed by a romantic partner, and that something - damned near anything - has to be done about it.

Me, I am impressed that the number is so LOW - I mean, we are looking at women killed, not women who died, and only a third of them are killed by boyfriends are husbands. Coincidentally, the statistics cited below do not quote the percentage of men who are killed that are killed by romantic partners, but simply comparing raw numbers - just because 4x men are killed by romantic partners to 5x women killed by romantic partners, it doesn't really follow that the above percentage is similar, because I don't know what number of men are killed overall.

Anyhow, you can play with numbers all you like, while I appreciate that the responses to this are flippant, the fact is, this is a horrible reality.

Mind you, read up a mite on that fathersforlife.org site - you may agree with them wholeheartedly, which is your right, however, I disagree with them on every front. For instance, I have as yet to meet a gay man who firmly believes that we should all be just like them - as cited on this site.
