Response to 4th law of robotics (Reply #31)

32. He killed three women.

 

And he is responsible. He is to blame. Nevertheless, his act occurs in the context of a culture that tolerates misogyny and trains males in macho culture, that excuses rape, that glorifies male jealousy and male violence.

Your caricature of what I said shows nothing other than denial. Denial doesn't help.

Since the homicide statistics do differ by era and country and place, and since there are different forms of homicide that are more or less common at different times, culture and training and socioeconomic factors self-evidently make a difference.

And you're right, most murder victims are men. And 90+ percent of murderers are men.

Beyond that, there are categories of murder. War, for example (where since WWII civilians have always the majority killed). Murder in the course of other crimes. Competition over territory in businesses, like drugs.

And femicide is a category. Don't practice denial. It's a specifically male violence against women in particular. It is a form of terrorism against women.
