Life During The Hysterical Twenties

My problem with the response to the horrible murder of Sarah Everard is that it is emotional (overly so) rather than rational. It ignores statistics (for example, the abduction and murder of women is extremely rare and men are five times more likely than women to be attacked in the streets and murdered) and those involved in the protests do not suggest any realistic remedies. Worse, still, they accuse all men of the crimes of a few psychopaths (one per cent of the population are psychopathic and few of them will ever commit acts of physical violence) and, let's face it, if they cannot be bothered to identify those responsible accurately it is unlikely that a sensible and specific remedy will be found.

I wish people would just calm down.
