Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest

In England, men are twice as likely to be victims of violence than women and four times as likely to be murdered. So, are the calls for more to be done to protect women a reinforcement of the patronising claim that women are the weaker sex and what every woman needs is a strong man to protect her?

Surely we should be admitting that a very small minority of men and an even smaller percentage of women are dangerously violent and that society should be spending a lot more money protecting everyone from them.
