Violence Gap

According to police reports from 2008 men are the victims of:

  • 78% of aggravated assaults
  • 64% of assaults with a weapon
  • 77% of murders
  • 65% of robberies
  • 53% of threats

Men, when assaulted by women, or even other men, receive very little to no help at all. Worse, when assaulted by women, in most case they will be assaulted by other men if they simply dare to defend themselves.

And yet Canada devotes the majority of its violence prevention budget on ending violence against women, ignoring male victims, and sending the message that men don’t matter or are unworthy of help. Violating its own and United Nations laws against discrimination.

And letting murderous women go free simply for claiming abuse, simply by claims from the murderer herself without any additional proof. (Nova Scotia Example) (New Brunswick Example)

 

Canada even encourages vigilante mob violence against men:

Women are as often as if not more often violent than men, yet our government keeps blaming men for all violence and painting women exclusively as victims, leaving men unprotected and unable to defend themselves against violent female sociopaths. And while 78% of violence targets men, demonstrating that men are clearly open targets due to their sex, our government still claims violence against women is gendered violence.

    How many of the above crime percentages are man on man vs women on man?

    “Women are as often as if not more often violent than men” – source?
    Also, the severity of the violence would be a significant factor as well.

    “And while 78% of violence targets men, demonstrating that ‘men are clearly open targets due to their sex'” – you cannot make this assertion based on that statistic alone…

    And yet Canada devotes the majority of its violence prevention budget on ending violence against women, ignoring male victims, and sending the message that men don’t matter or are unworthy of help. – I don’t think Canada devotes the majority of its violence prevention budget on ignoring male victims…

    “Men, when assaulted by women, or even other men, receive very little to no help at all” – What sort of help would you like to see? Would be nice to see more suggestions for improvement along with the criticisms. However, I would agree that this seems to be anecdotally true.

      Does it matters?
      Should we just the same ignore female on female bullying and violence, black on black violence, white on white violence, or which ever in-group violence, because it does not cross an arbitrary demographic line?
      Tell me Chris, do you deserve to be beaten up by someone else who has a penis because you also have a penis?
