Men and Murder

See e.g. this.

Between March 10th and April 7th, this newspaper reports that mass shootings have claim 57 lives. Given the limits placed on the count, “mass” and “shootings,” the number almost certainly underestimates the number of people who were murdered during this interval. For example, this multiple murder by stabbing wasn’t included.

One thing all of the referenced killings have in common is that they were carried out by men. A majority of the victims were women. And in the “search for motives” women see to be accorded a disproportionate share of the blame, see e.g. this.
