Self-publicist feminists have been keeping themselves busy churning out their gender biased myths about violence.

On Monday Tracey Spicer wrote on Twitter, “Have you heard of the sexual violence pyramid? It’s a powerful tool to use when explaining to people that while sexist jokes might seem ‘harmless’, they’re actually not…” (Who wants to tell her that the “tool” is actually closer to home?)

Spicer’s bio highlights her as an author for ABC books.

Her timing is interesting considering it coincides with the publication of new research from the University of Michigan that sheds light on domestic violence in homosexual relationships.

The research, published in the American Journal of Men’s Health, found that nearly half (46 per cent) of men in the study about intimate partner violence in male couples reported being victims of abuse.

Rob Stephenson, Professor of Nursing and Director of the Center for Sexuality and Health Disparities who conducted the study says, “We’re stuck in this mental representation of domestic violence as a female victim and male perpetrator, and while that is very important, there are other forms of domestic violence in all types of relationships.”

Correct.

Is Spicer helping by regurgitating feminist myths about violence? No.

Is Spicer serious about addressing violence? No.

Self-publicist and left feminists are solely interested in cultivating hype about a “culture of violence”, “traditional gender roles” and “rigid gender-based stereotypes” because as the above research clearly shows; violence is not a gender issue, neither does it have anything to do with traditional gender stereotypes.
