I am always intrigued by reading comments on news stories where there is any possibility of a male/female debate. It seems to me - from what is reported in the news - that men regularly murder their wives/partners and children after a relationship breakdown. I know it is not an exclusively male trait but there seem to be more men doing it at the moment and it is often blamed on the supposedly biased court system which favours women. As though that is a justification for murdering anyone.
Seems to me people - whether male or female - do it because they can't stand rejection.
