What if someone kills their partner for insurance money?</p><p>She <a href="https://archive.is/4lxvF#selection-367.0-367.129">claims elsewhere that there’s no systemic bias in women’s favor</a>. Why? Because women are, allegedly, more likely to be arrested on DV calls when identified as the perpetrator (1/10 for men vs 1/3 for women). Note that Smith switches between studies about the UK (like this one) and US at the drop of a hat, despite her main area of concern being the UK. Note also that <a href="http://www.nr-foundation.org.uk/downloads/Who-Does-What-to-Whom.pdf">the study in question</a> relies, again, <a href="https://archive.is/9PG9i">on who the <i>police</i> think are perps</a>. You know, <b>the very people whose bias is under question</b>. I apologize for what seems like <a href="http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gamedropping&amp;defid=8261028">gamedropping</a>, but this is really the first thing I think of;<br/></p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="462" data-orig-width="600"><img data-orig-height="462" data-orig-width="600" alt="image" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/525551372cd1ee61930440f3be7afcfa/tumblr_inline_nnzwawMAUs1sps4wz_540.png"/></figure><p>As <a href="https://archive.is/9VIn7#selection-4817.0-4817.5">Ally Fogg points out</a> (<a href="https://archive.is/9VIn7#selection-5255.15-5267.10">and someone who claims to have worked at a shelter backs him up about this being the party line</a>) the study Smith is referencing also repeatedly downplays male victimization, describing mutual abuse in terms of male aggression and female self-defense, and generally goes “well, it’s worse for women”. And did I mention that the study was apparently done in the name of the Violence Against Women Studies Group at U of Bristol? No bias here, no sir.<br/></p><p>Oh, and <b>she’s the type of feminist who says men shouldn’t be feminists</b>, and that feminism isn’t about men, and that <a href="https://archive.is/9f4I1#selection-197.0-197.574">men just mess up feminism with their pesky concerns about men’s issues as well as women</a>, but can’t quite seem to grasp why people think she doesn’t care about men.<br/></p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="351" data-orig-width="629"><img data-orig-height="351" data-orig-width="629" alt="image" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/9ea6e9a69d6e7f1d18bed02a1be2a6d4/tumblr_inline_nnymn1OyTI1sps4wz_540.jpg"/></figure><p>For some reason.<br/></p></blockquote>
