6. I was going to quote Will Smith and ask if it is just that it is documented, but the article shows

that clearly is not the case and the incidents of men assaulting and killing the women around them has clearly jumped.

This is heartbreaking, but not at all surprising given the fact that men are giving themselves new permissions to be vile in all kinds of ways. We see it in the changing rhetoric and increasing male dominance and female repression of the republiQan party. We see it in this apologia for penis-representing guns on both sides of the aisle (looking at you, gungeon). We see it in the rise of evangelism which has become nothing but a front for demeaning and repressing women. We see it in the increasingly violent and demeaning forms of pornography (yes, deal with it, I'm blaming pornography) that are available to anyone with a keyboard.

Once upon a time, strength meant dominance. Now control of information and ability to use information means dominance. The playing field is more equal. Some men - straight men - truly despise women due to the fact that the men are no longer entitled to be catered to by women.
