From the link:

(and we still haven’t really talked about the fact that, of 62 mass shootings in the U.S. in three decades, only one was by a woman, because when you say lone gunman, everyone talks about loners and guns but not about men — and by the way, nearly two thirds of all women killed by guns are killed by their partner or ex-partner).

That’s just a parenthetical phrase, yet it is meatier than most whole articles I’ve read.

I agree, read the whole thing.

I also agree that the whole linked article is well worth reading.

Nothing like voluminous amounts of cold, hard evidence to expose patriarchy for what it essentially is —- the violent subjugation of women.

Progress has been made in that this violence no longer has the full legal and moral support of the state and its institutions in the developed world.

Much more needs to be done, and the pissing and moaning of the self-proclaimed anti-feminists and men’s rights activists is irrelevant.

In the California case, the state Supreme Court did not say the defendant was ‘not guilty’; What it said was: “The prosecutor offered two grounds on which to convict the defendant and one of those two grounds is invalid because its not in the law (which hasn’t been updated since the 19th Century). Since we by law cannot ask the jury as to the grounds upon which they convicted this man, we have no choice but to void his conviction. However, we recommend he be retried on the remaining grounds (that being that he had sex with the complainant while she was unconscious and thus unable to consent) and that the law be updated.”

The judges weren’t anti-woman, but they were limited in what they could do. Yes, the law should allow a person to be convicted of rape if he gains consent by pretending to be someone he isn’t, but in California at present the law only says that if the imposter pretended to be the victim’s spouse. Judges may not make the law, that job belongs to the legislature. Those seeking a change in the law are going to have to find a way to push their cause in Sacramento.

So, pointing this out, supports what?

Did you glean any new knowledge from the article as a whole?

I hadn’t gotten to the article yet, but I felt the addition was needed.

ah!

I think if you read the entire article, you’ll find such nitpicking rather lame.

This is California, a sane state. We’re already on it. It would have passed last year, but we still had enough Republicans in office back then to block it.
