Male-on-Male Violence

Another issue that comes up when women write or talk about violence against women is that men are assaulting and killing each other. Yes, yes they are. It's a problem that should be solved, too. I don't think it's up to women to solve that one, either. We might help in whatever projects are created to address it. But I think, again, that men need to spur that effort.

My own energy is always going to be prioritized towards meeting the needs of women and children. I think that's a valid position. There are a gazillion world problems and we can't all tackle all of them at once. We have to pick a spot and brighten our corner, so to speak.

I just don't see why men have to interject, whenever we talk about violence against women, that men are victims too. Yes they are, and so please go work on that. Don't expect me to stop my conversation about violence against women as if it's not valid to talk about that.
