I hear you, David, and understand. I have even given out the same message at times.

You caught yourself wondering why it matters that most men are killed by men, when I pointed out that most people who are killed are men. You probably thought it was otherwise before I pointed out some facts. Ask around your friends or colleagues, see how many of them have learnt lies too, and ask yourself who taught you all those lies.

I don’t see “lies” being involved here: mostly, people just aren’t aware. Certainly with regard to the fact that many more murder victims are men than women, this is no surprise to me, but I didn’t know.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity (or ignorance)

Now, I think you’d like to make the case that there’s some kind of effort going on to keep people unaware. I would be curious to read about the evidence that this is true. Got links?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
