Response to 4th law of robotics (Reply #28)

30. Sure, but this is misogyny at work - a femicide. Something specific.

 

There are different kinds of murders. This is one of a specific and important kind.

Murderers of any kind are usually men. Women-hating men murder thousands of women. (Man-hating women, insofar as they exist, don't kill almost any men.) This is a specific form of misogynistic murder. It is enabled and encouraged by misogynistic training (he expects to own and control "his" woman) and by misogynist culture. It contributes to the fear and terror of misogynist culture. It's a weapon against all women who are subject to male violence - the fear that they might meet this fate if they resist, like this woman did. Death for her and her friends, apparently.

Denial of this doesn't help anyone.
