When we start to look more deeply into what the statistics reveal about murder, we discover some striking patterns in the data, some of which are quite surprising. One of the most salient observations that emerges is that murder is a male-dominated phenomenon. Year after year, the percentage of murders in the U.S that are committed by men hovers right around 87. It may be surprising that men are also much more often the victims of murder. Of murder victims in any given year, on average, 75 percent are men – a percentage that has remained quite stable over the years, with 74 percent in 1964, 77 percent in 1974, and 75 percent in 1984. It’s also interesting to look at how many murders by men are perpetrated against men. On average, 65 percent of all murders involve males killing males. By comparison, 22 percent of murders involve males killing females. As for murders by women, 10 percent of all murders, on average, involve females killing males, and a mere 3 percent of murders involve females killing other females.
If we look at the complete set of same-sex killings – male killing male and female killing female – we find that more than 95 percent involve men killing other men. These patterns show a remarkable consistency across cultures. In statistics compiled from thirty-five different studies representing a broad span of cultures, the vast majority of same-sex killings were committed by men: 97 percent in Brazil, 93 percent in Scotland, 94 percent in Kenya, 98 percent in Uganda, and 97 percent among the people known as the Tiv in Nigeria.

What MRAs and anti-feminists fail to realize when they mention how men are more likely to be murdered than women is that they are not actually rebutting feminist arguments addressing the prevalence of male violence. The question feminist theory provides answers to is not whether or not men can be victims, but why is it that the majority of the time the gender of the people perpetuating violent sexual or homicidal acts are men. From there, theories on the social structuring of society (making mention of gender-based power dynamics) and sex-specific socialization, all in relation to a society structured to uphold male dominance (i.e.: patriarchy) are applied. While male victimization is an issue, it is not the core issue that feminist theorists address, which is how do we socialize men to be less violent so that the rates of violence in general go down.
A Dutch children’s charity set up a sophisticated bot with the programmed ‘identity’ of a 10-year old Filipino girl. In a 10-week period 20,000 men contacted her and 1,000 tried to pay her to take her clothes off on webcam.men are the best
