Let’s Talk About Male Violence

Note: in this and other blog post(s), you will notice that I use women and females as well as men and males interchangeably. That is because I reject the silly notion that female and male are sexes while woman and man are genders. A woman is an adult female and a man is an adult male, so they work hand-in-hand and can be used interchangeably.

Let’s talk about male violence. Because it is a real thing and it takes the spirits, souls, and lives of women. Male violence is real, whether it is males or male transgenders doing the violence, it is the same across the board and we should not be afraid to name it.

Male violence.

Male violence is men, including those who claim to be women, on Twitter threatening to rape women, simply because women disagree with them on any number of topics, from feminism, to gaming, to knowing that male transgenders are not women.

Male violence is men, including those who claim to be women, posting about raping and dismembering a woman’s body, simply because… you guessed it, women disagree with men.

Male violence is men on a website posting about their experiences with prostituted women, calling them whores and describing, sometimes in great detail, every degrading thing they did to these women.

Male violence is assaulting a woman on the bus or train because she is wearing a skirt and he knows no one will stop him.

Male violence is raping an unconscious woman because she is drunk or drugged and he knows that in –this- society, he can get away with it.

Male violence encompasses these and so, so many other things because male violence is everywhere, in our thoughts, our language, in the way we view women in this society as disposable and inferior, because men are in positions of power in this world and they make the laws and then break them without a second thought. They are the rulers and they view women as their subjects who should and do everything to support, please, and nurture men while they start more wars, destroy more lands, kill more species into extinction, and commit so many genocides, I sometimes wonder if men are our Extinction Level Event.

Don’t believe me? Then let’s take a look at the numbers, shall we, dear reader?

According to the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime’s 2013 Global Study of Homicide (http://www.unodc.org/documents/gsh/pdfs/2014_GLOBAL_HOMICIDE_BOOK_web.pdf), of ll the people, men and women, who are “convicted of intentional homicide” (pg 15, figure), 95%, globally are male, while 5% are women.

Broken down into region, the numbers show that in Europe, the numbers of people who are convicted or murder show that 92% of them are male and 8% of them are female. In Asia, it is 95% males and 5% females. I know what you’re thinking, dear reader: it –has- to be different in the Americas, right?!? I’m afraid you are incorrect, the numbers of those convicted of homicides in the Americas is 96% male and 4% female.

When you look at victims of homicide, globally, you will see that 79% of them are male and 21% of them are female (pg 15, figure); but in 95% of those cases, males are the ones doing the killing.

Most of the above male violence towards men can be attributed to gang and organized crime, but when it comes to women, of the 93,000 women murdered in 2012, globally, almost HALF of them (43,600) were killed by an intimate partner or family member, while in Asia, Europe, and Oceania, OVER HALF of the women killed there were killed by an intimate partner or family member. When it comes to men, though only 6% of males (20,000), globally, were killed by an intimate partner or family member (pg 55).

The numbers dip slightly in the Americas where 38% of women who were murdered, were killed by an intimate partner or family member, while the male’s number drops to 5% (pg 55, figure 2.2.6).

Male violence.

It kills women and men alike. 96% percent of all murderers in the Americas killed women and men, while only 4% of those convicted of murder were women. This says a LOT, doesn’t it?

So when male transgenders try to blame women, whom they so callously force the slur of “TERF” down our throats, for murdering other male transgenders, they are blaming the wrong sex for these horrible crimes.

Male violence is the culprit there, as it always is… 96% of all murderers out there are men killing women, men killing men, men killing female transgenders, and men killing male transgenders.

So, dear transgender (and their sheep) reader, remember this, the next time you tell a woman that her “misgendering” you is an act of violence, the next time you tell a woman that radical feminists want to kill all transgenders, the next time you tell a woman that radical feminism works to exterminate all transgenders, the next time… remember that it is males who are out there doing the killing.

Finally, I wanted to talk about how male transgenders commit male violence as well, they are not exempt. Male transgenders, or “trans women” are just as likely to commit violent crimes as males, in other words, transitioning and taking female hormones does -not- decrease the likelihood that a male will stop committing violent crime. The same is true for female transgenders, or “trans men”: they are more likely to commit violent crime than females but just as likely as males. So female transgenders have an increased risk of committing violent crimes compared to females.

That information was taken from this 30 year study of transgenders: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0016885 and it reads, in part:

“Second, regarding any crime, male-to-females had a significantly increased risk for crime compared to female controls (aHR 6.6; 95% CI 4.1–10.8) but not compared to males (aHR 0.8; 95% CI 0.5–1.2). This indicates that they retained a male pattern regarding criminality. The same was true regarding violent crime. By contrast, female-to-males had higher crime rates than female controls (aHR 4.1; 95% CI 2.5–6.9) but did not differ from male controls. This indicates a shift to a male pattern regarding criminality and that sex reassignment is coupled to increased crime rate in female-to-males. The same was true regarding violent crime.”

In fact, male transgenders do not just commit violence against women and men, including each other, they commit violence against themselves! As that same study that I linked to above, states: “This suggests that male-to-females are at higher risk for suicide attempts after sex reassignment, whereas female-to-males maintain a female pattern of suicide attempts after sex reassignment (Tables S1 and S2).”

This indicates to me that transitioning is not a cure for whatever is ailing transgenders and that violence follows some of them, even to their grave.

Male violence is a real thing, dear reader. It is the reason that sex segregated spaces exist: not to eliminate violence against women, because in this society, that is impossible; but segregating private spaces like bathrooms, dressing rooms, jail cells, shelters, etc., at least creates an atmosphere where male violence against females is less likely.

Do not misunderstand me, I am not saying or insinuating that all male transgenders are violent, just as I am not saying that all males are violent. What I –am- saying is that male transgenders are just as likely to commit violence as males; and enough males are violent that we require sex segregated spaces for women’s safety.

Women’s safety should be paramount here. If men who claim to be women really were women, they would not only applaud that thinking, they would demand it!

    Good to see you writing again.

    Thanks a lot. 🙂

    Reblogged this on Stop Trans Chauvinism.

  4. A very powerful piece, and I thank you.

    I did want to mention an error: “Broken down into region, the numbers show that in Europe, the numbers of people who are convicted or murder show that 92% of them are female and 8% of them are female.”

  5. Kitty Barber says:

    Thank you, well done. That study is very interesting; trans people have higher suicide rates after ‘sex’ reassignment surgery than the general population. I wonder if they know if it’s also higher than trans people before surgery? (Even if it’s just the same, it’s obvious that this kind of radical treatment doesn’t cure the, ah, something something. Gosh. What a surprise and a shock.)

  6. BigBooButch says:

    The study might have touched on that, I cannot remember at this time. So much of it is a blur in my mind right now because I am not good with numbers! 😉

  7. lovetruthcourage says:

    Great blog entry! I was curious about the stats for Africa. You list Europe, Asia and the Americas. I’ll bet the numbers are similar. I really enjoy your writing.

  8. Dar Guerra says:

    Thank you for this clear statement. I would personally add in the intentional homicides committed by men in military conditions. They used to be called wars but now the US military bombs civilians in places like Pakistan that we are “friends” with. I believe the number of intentional homicides committed by men would then rise to about 99%. Also the true extent of the carnage would also be plainer.

  9. BigBooButch says:

    Thank you. 🙂

    Re: Africa being included:
    The UN report does not exclude Africa. On pages 14-15, where the figure is for the other areas’ rates, there is some discussion about murder rates in Africa. Also, on the figure 2.2.6 on page 55 of the UN report, the one that talks about female and male victims of murder by an intimate partner or family member, it shows that in Africa, 42% of women and 5% of men are killed by an intimate partner or family member. There are other areas where Africa is discussed, so like I said, it is not left out, it just was not part of what I included on my post. 🙂

  10. BigBooButch says:

    I believe the UN report does account for military, gang, and mafia killings in its numbers. That is why, they believe, the numbers are so high in terms of (a) percentage of males who are killers and (b) the number of men killed (which, according to my math and based on what I read on page 16, was around 335,000) in 2012.

    Of course, you could be right and the percentage of male killers could be higher because their report is based on reported murders and convictions. So if we are to believe that there are more war-time murders by men that are not reported, then it is not much of a leap to believe that the percentage of male murderers could be higher than the reported 95% globally.

    Thank you for your thoughts. 🙂

    “This indicates a shift to a male pattern regarding criminality and that sex reassignment is coupled to increased crime rate in female-to-males. The same was true regarding violent crime.”

    What does that imply regarding the origin of male violence?
    If we say the reason is socialisation, then why can transmen be as violent as males? And if it is so easy to change onself, then why are transwomen as violent as males, too?
    If we say the reason is genetic, then transmen shouldn’t be able to become as violent as males.

    Is it possible that transwomen would be able to undo their male socialisation (just as transmen do with their female one), they just do not WANT to?

  12. BigBooButch says:

    I would say a combination of things, but yes, male socialization plays a big role. The change we see in female transgenders is their own “male” socialization from being viewed as men (they pass infinitely better than male transgenders). They also have a skewed belief of what it means to be a man, in that they become hyper sexist, aggressive, and violent because that is what they believe it means to be a man (on top of the massive amounts of testosterone they are flooding their female bodies with). This is all speculation of course. The facts about the violence do not lie, it’s how they got there that would require some kind of study to figure out. But a combination of things makes sense to me.

  13. sellmaeth says:

    Actually, I think female transgenders are less deluded about what it actually means to be the other sex than male ones. They (subconsciously) know that gender is a hierarchy, and want to be on top of it. Becoming more aggressive is consistent with that.
    Male transgenders claim to want to be women … but actually do not want to be on the bottom of the gender hierarchy.

  14. BigBooButch says:

    Nicely put. I agree. Male transgenders want to be -viewed- as women but still -treated- as men.

  15. Valkryie says:

    Viewed as women but treated as men. Yes!

    Doesn’t this prove that men KNOW gender benefits them? They claim they “don’t realize” women have it worse because no one “taught” them about it, but they prove they don’t need any “education” about it because they always choose not to have to go through what women go through.

    Also, this reminds me of sexual harrassment: Men say they’d love to get catcalled by women, but really, this would not include ugly, scary women and he does not imagine a scenario in which he is powerless and being targeted with violence

    In other words, he wants only part of the female experience without the other part that he KNOWS is undesirable and frightening.

    He wants some female experiences while still holding onto his male privilege.

  16. BigBooButch says:

    Valkryie, I completely agree with you, sister – right on! 😊
