Male Violence’ (Echo Nov 22) reminded me of a few questions that have troubled me for quite some time.
Why is it that some seemingly well-intentioned people ruminate in public about such critically important issues as domestic violence, without referring to a shred of the mountains of evidence or theory?
Why is it that some men continue to shame themselves, and their gender, by apparently failing to demonstrate any understanding of more than 50 years of contemporary feminist writing and thinking?
Why is it that the ethic of free speech is abused so violently in these turbulent times of truth decay, and wilfully ignorant pondering is so often mistaken for courageous scepticism? Any explanations?
