Realmenarenot: “Girls Gone Bad: Statistics Distort the Truth” article misses the point, again

Real Men Are Not has an interesting take on how our perceptions can make us believe a girl who is less violent than most boys is as violent as the boys.

So I think what happens is that again boy’s violence isn’t seen as a big deal even though it is reaching pandemic proportions in America. People hide behind the “boys will be boys” motto to excuse all sorts of destructive, violent, misogynist, homophobic, racist behavior…
The more we can understand our attitudes toward violence the more we can do to reduce the violence around us.
