Estrogen is not as dangerous as testosterone, many feminists allege. For that reason, they assert, men hurt women more often than the converse, therefore “Men are bad, Women are good.”
Are things really that simple? The objective reality of inter-personal violence is that women are somewhat more often violent against men than men are violent against women. All hype aside, domestic or family violence between spouses or “partners” is just a very small portion of interpersonal violence. Children who are victims of that sort of violence comprise a large sector of that, and most violence against children, by far, is committed by the children’s mothers — an inconvenient fact, which is why feminist propagandists never mention it or at best rarely touch on it.
Only some men and some women are violent
Still, regardless of whether women or men are more likely to be violent against the other sex, only a minuscule fraction of women or men engage in it. The vast majority of women and men are quite peaceful, harmless and live in peace with one another, if only the feminist propagandists let them do that, and even though the feminist propagandists do their very best to incite open war between them.
Some feminists go so far that they assert that women can be safe from men’s violence only if the sexes are completely segregated. To their chagrin, they have difficulties coping with the reality that “domestic partnerships” by lesbians are the ones that experience on average far greater incidence rates of domestic violence than do all others.

Are men more violent than women?
Just the other day, a woman insisted that it is a well-known fact that men are more violent than women are, and that men’s violence is caused by testosterone.
I promised that I would provide her with a few facts on what the truth is about that. The following is from what I sent to her.
What she had asserted reflects the consequences of a considerable extent of feminist indoctrination. Therefore I can’t resist setting the record straight.
I have no doubt that, someday, the distortion of truth by the radical feminists of our time will be seen to have been the greatest intellectual crime of the second half of the twentieth century. At the present time, however, we still live under the aegis of that crime, and calling attention to it is an act of great moral courage.

Objective and relative reality
Professor Howard Schwartz once explained to me the difference between objective and subjective reality, between absolute and relative moral standards. Radical feminists (a.k.a. Marxist- or socialist feminists) use the latter to destroy the truth.
That was about a dozen years ago, when Prof. Schwartz was working on the book that is mentioned in the following. As profound as the quote is that I showed above, it would be better to identify not only brilliant thoughts and sayings but also the context in which such things were expressed or published.
Howard Schwartz’ expressed his opinion on the crime of the feminist distortion of the truth in the latter half of the twentieth century. He did so in his book: “The revolt of the primitive: an inquiry into the roots of political correctness.” (p. 15, in the beginning of the fifth full paragraph on that page, accessible via this link).
With respect to the ideas the woman had expressed, here is the truth in relation to that. Let me assure you that Dr. Schwartz is reporting it accurately. Drs. Lupri and Dutton did their respective research mentioned by Dr. Schwartz right here in Alberta. Here go the details of the research by Lupri and Dutton and how they were spun by the feminists.
That is as far as the excerpt shown on Google Books goes. I should receive a copy of the book within a few days.
I told the woman that I will be happy to lend the book to her. That will enabled her to address some of the impact that feminist propaganda has had over the years. Of course, that will work for her only if she wishes to learn about the absolute truth. It will not work if she wants to learn just the edited, feminist version of it.
Women more often violent than feminists want anyone to know
Here is another item that will interest you. It is a copy of a draft for an article that the Report Newsmagazine had asked me to write for them (for reasons explained in the introduction to the article — the Report Newsmagazine stopped publishing at that time — the article did not appear in print, although the Internet version that you can access via the preceding link has been read many thousands of times and has been accessed 108 times at my website during the past 30 days alone, while it has also been posted at or linked to from a total of at least 77 web pages on the Internet).
Last, but not least, you may wish to have a look as well at this: “The big list: Female teachers with students: Most comprehensive account on Internet of women predators on campus,” WorldNetDaily Exclusive, May 17, 2011.
I told the woman, furthermore, that in case she thinks that the people I mentioned and whose work the cited material identifies present just isolated and distorted views, I have a book here that she may wish to read, “When She Was Bad: Violent Women and the Myth of Innocence,” by Patricia Pearson (a feminist, by the way), 1997, Viking. Here is a book review.
It has happened that some people asked me “Why should I believe you?”. The commentary at the preceding link explains that no one has to take my word for anything, but that the truth is out there whether I tell it or not. Unfortunately, feminist sources of information on the sexes and on what they do to one another are most often anything but truthful.
