Today in Cis Privilege: There are 12 murder-suicides a week, women are 85% of those killed, men 95% of those killing

“Why would anyone want to know that there are 12 murder-suicides a week? That women are 85% of those killed, and men 95% of those killing? That there are at least three women who die violent deaths every day because men are angry and “possessive”? That there are 66,000 calls a day to domestic shelters from people, most women, asking for help escaping daily terrorism. I don’t want this information. But this is information no one wants, and everyone needs.”
