Mothers Are Killers. In the vast majority of child homicides, mothers are the killers and children are the victims.
This is a true statement, and based on journalism standards of The Age I don’t need a citation. However you may view table 6 on the custom data set obtained from the Australian Institute of Criminology here.
Let’s break down the recent poorly written hate speech article by Jenna Price which I am amazed and appalled to see published on The Age.
Price, who heads Destroy The Joint – well known for peddling misleading information to the public, is a frequent demoniser of men. Price made the claim in her intentional clickbait opening line that “Men Are Killers.” This of course completely ignores the fact that women are also killers.
According to social media commentary on her Facebook page she has angered a lot of people. And not surprisingly. Australia is waking up and getting very tired of the constant man bashing to push the radical feminist agenda of demonising men.
Price went on to give opinion on some research from Monash University. Since she failed to give any citation or link it’s almost impossible to rebut.
What’s even more terrifying is that in the tiny number of cases where men are homicide victims at the hands of women, around half of those same men subjected their killers to years – years – of violent, physical abuse.”
(Tiny? did you get that. Men who are killed are insignificant to Price.)
However, let me take an educated guess on past history of how feminist journalists make their claims:
The research was done on women who were charged with murder after they killed their partners who are all trying to get the minimum sentence. Dead men can’t talk, so of course these women are going to say they were abused. I’m also sure there was no comparative study done on men who killed their partners, and if there was, would Ms Price excuse them for murder due to the years of abuse they endured?
But let me go one step further:
If a ‘tiny’ number of women kill men and ‘around half’ (which usually means 40%) of those were victims of abuse, then what she is saying is that a miniscule amount of women were victims of domestic violence when they killed their partners.
Pfft. They call this journalism.
The VAW campaign has been telling us for years that violence is never the answer, and yet here is Jenna Price contributing to the belief that rather than walking away or getting help, it is acceptable for a woman to murder. Ergo – violence IS the answer.
She then goes on with this astonishing claim
So, this is the evidence. The next time some person tells you that men are the victims of family violence too, remind them men are killers.
There it is ^. It’s now fact because Jenna Price said so, and that’s all she needs to be able to claim ‘evidence’. What is The Age thinking in allowing this appalling and bigoted journalism?
Let me tell you a little about some of the 37 people women killed last year. I’m sure that each and every one of them would not want so called journalists like Price saying they deserved to die because ‘men are killers’.
Around 1/3 of the men killed by women died in indigenous communities where it is well known and accepted that domestic violence is often reciprocal. So much so that they have just run a women’s behaviour change program in the region.
There was a 26 years old man who was killed by his half brother and girlfriend when they poured bleach down his throat. When the pain of that didn’t kill him they stabbed him to death. Before he died he was building a scooter for a 2year old’s birthday party. He was described by his friends as loving and kind. A good bloke.
Then there is a man who died at the hands of a violent female partner who had breached her DVO. She stabbed him to death after a night of heavy drinking. She had two other warrants for her arrest at the time.
Another man died at the hands of his ex girlfriend. At 22 years of age, she repeatedly stabbed her victim in the stomach. He was a young man and loving father who had moved on to a new girlfriend. I would like Jenna Price, to tell this man’s son that his father deserved to to die because ‘men are killers’.
When 41 year old Huong Duong allegedly killed Ngoc Chau Tran she was on several medications including methadone. Does Ms Price then assert that it was Huong Duongs fault that Ms Tran was a drug addict? Does she truly believe that drug addicts are not capable of un provoked violence and aggression? I would like Ms Price to explain all this to Mr Duongs family when she tells them ‘men are killers’.
Then there was the 51-year-old man in Capalabla, QLD who detectives described as having met a “horrible, violent death”. A 32-year-old woman was charged with his murder. She was also charged with interfering with a corpse after she dumped his body in a ditch. This makes her a cold blooded killer, not a victim.
Despite not being any reports of him having been abusive or violent, let’s imagine for a moment that this woman was a victim of domestic violence as Ms Price claims the ‘vast majority’ are.
At what age is a woman able to take care of herself and leave an abusive relationship? At what point in a woman’s life can she take responsibility for herself to at least walk into a shelter, or one of the hundreds of women’s resource centres in Queensland? I know, they call this victim blaming. But somehow when she becomes the murderer ‘he deserved it’.
I wonder what Ms Price would say about the 9 children who were killed by women last year? Men killed 4 children, so this makes female murderers “the vast majority”.
On Prices’ theory, how many of those children deserved to die because their mother couldn’t handle her anger or reach out for help? Was she a fit mother? Did her husband make her do it?
Did the 8 children who were butchered in Cairns deserve to die at the hands of their mother because ‘men are killers’?
Did the little 4 year old boy and his elderly grandmother deserve to die at the hands of a woman because ‘men are killers?’
I was sent this quote today from The Socratic Method For Thinking which applies perfectly to the way feminist journalists like Price must come under scrutiny.
The correctness of a statement cannot be determined by whether it is held by a majority or has been believed for a long time by important people.
A correct statement is one incapable of being rationally contradicted. A statement is true if it cannot be disproved. If it can, however many people believe it, however grand they may be, it must be false and we are right to doubt it.
Price’s unsubstantiated commentary provides endorsement and indeed encouragement for women to kill men and get a free pass after they claim victim status.
Feminist journalists need to be reined in and forced to adhere to the minimum standards of non biased, evidence based reporting. If they have background agendas they should be kept in the background, not using mainstream media to peddle their bullshit claims and mislead the public..
Your support of Relating To Men is greatly appreciated, no matter how small.
