@redmancuk I read many studies before posting this question. Hitting someone is not a crime that carries a long sentence unless you beat them almost to death which would be aggravated assault. Murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault (often committed by men) carry longer sentences by law than prostitution, drug possession and property crimes (often committed by women) – they carry shorter sentences by law. So, if each criminal regardless of gender were given the maximum amount of prison time, there would be still be more men in prison due to the nature of their crimes.
I’ve had a few serious answers. But I’ve had those deflecting and trying to make it about women. And then I’m called names when what I’ve said were factual and fair.
But maybe that kind of behavior answers a lot actually.
