I’m seriously going to start keeping a journal of all the disgusting things guys say to me. Today a guy honked at me and said “have all my children mamacita”. What the hell is wrong with the male gender.

The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner.
