and what do you think needs to happen to change this?
if you look at literally any kind of violent crime stats anywhere on the planet, men dominate the stats, for example homocide stats for the USA between 1976 - 2004:
Male offender/Male victim 65.2%
Male offender/Female victim 22.6%
Female offender/Male victim 9.7%
Female offender/Female victim 2.4%
overall: male offenders 88.5% female offenders 11.5%
THIS IS NOT AN ANTI MEN RANT I mean look at the stats, most victims of male violence, are men themselves. I'm just curious about opinions because it seems like no one ever talks about this, everyone makes a very big deal about the ratio of blacks in prison, or any disproportionately represented minority in anything,and if it was the other way around (more women offenders) I am certain it would be all over the news.
