Maneaters

Women murdering men is close to three times as common as women murdering other women is:


I stumbled across this while looking for cross-referenced offender and victim data from the latest iteration of the FBI's Uniform Crime Report. The latest year the figures on sex are cross-referenced (that I could find--the report is not intuitively organized so I may be missing it) is 2013 so that's where the data in the preceding table comes from.

I'm mildly surprised by this though I guess I shouldn't be. A lot of these murders are presumably gang-related and the way of men is the way of the gang. When it's a gangsteress taking the shots, most of the targets are men. Whoever is doing the killing, the object of their homicidal intent tends to be a man. Male privilege!

You don't even have to go that far.

Men are more violent than women. Therefore, a situation with one man and one woman is more likely to escalate to violence than a situation with two women.

IHTG,

Touche, thanks.

Ae, your longtime commenter Dan here. In Wollersdorf, Austria for my cousin's wedding. Big election win for the West today there. Looks like Austria might save Europe again. Lets count the times. They kept Turkey out of the EU back when everyone wanted them in. They backed Hungary in closing off migrant routes. Now they will work for a hard EU border and turning the ships around in the Mediterranian. Based new Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is just 31, a millenial.

Dan,

Wonderful! Is the feeling palpable? Eastern and central Europe to save it's more affluent, decadent, and outbred Western cousins--appropriately occurring as you're at your cousin's wedding!

IHTG is probably on the money, but I can't help but think women are more inclined to murder their cheating boyfriends/husbands than the mistress. It's not even an argument I'm going to make, it's just my first reaction!

"Based new Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is just 31, a millenial."

On this particular point, there are a number of Millennials who are more like proto-Zyklons. I consider myself to be in this category.

From a broader perspective, Europe is showing some signs that it's waking up. Merkel won the election, but the AfD gained enough seats to make a difference. Macron trounced Le Pen, but he's shown hints that he's less on board with "The Great Replacement" as it was thought. Italy has Marco Minniti as the Interior Minister and he's apparently working to curb the refugees coming in on boat. He's a former Commie, but he has an old school Communist love of hard borders and spycraft.

It might be too little, too late for Europe, but there's at least a hope Europe can turn around.

Agree. Generational changes don't follow arbitrary categorical cutoffs. The shift will first start becoming widely apparent with it's leading edge of people coming of age. These millennial early adopters are, well, us.

The thing about Austria is that it very rich and unfortunately somewhat decadent like Western Europe. Being German speaking they have the ability to actually influence Germany and thus they are very core Europe. But they are somehow dialed in to the National Question in a way that Germany is not. Maybe tending to their beautiful gardens and their beautiful properties makes them actually interested in sustaining it. One thing about Austria is that the population is at the higher end of the human capital spectrum but most dont go to college. They are instead master builders, tradespeople and have practical orientation. I have avoided going too deep in the weeds with politics in conversations because I am an outsider with rough German, and i was here for a wedding, but it is nice to see that the dirndles and lederhosen for festivities arent just a surface thing.

Austria is unfortunately decadent. People live in sin and dont make enough babies. Sebastian Kurz has a beautiful girlfriend, but no ring and no kiddies. Cmon, dude, be an example. He's young, there is time for him. But so many of Europe's leaders are childless.

Dan said...

Austria also shows the value of a right flank. Kurz is from a mainstream party, while another party exists to his right. While the other party absorbs the 'far right' and 'extremist' label, Kurz can operate in the mainstream and actually get stuff done.

I don't know a good way to research this, but I suspect in most cases the "victim" is the husband/boyfriend. Anecdotally, I know a woman where exactly this sort of thing occurred, i.e. she essentially killed her husband in self-defense.

@Jokah Macpherson

Any murderer can claim self-defense. Unless there is ample airtight evidence to prove otherwise.

Reporting for duty!

Dan,

Yes, when factoring in non-native births in western European countries, the fertility of eastern and central Europe are hard to distinguish from western Europe, and all are of course below replacement.

Jokah,

The UCR does not count "justifiable homicide" in its murder statistics that are used here, so that shouldn't be a factor in this case.

DissidentRight,

Glad to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you, sir.

Wrong. Lebbian relationships have a higher incidence of domestic violence than straight or gay male relationships...
