Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

How to Make Men Live Longer

According to HealthDay News (seen via Ace of Spades (seen via Eternity Road)):

British researchers analyzed rates of female murders and male death rates from all causes in 51 countries in Europe, Asia, Australasia, and North and South America. The prevalence of violence against women was used to indicate the extent of patriarchal control in each of the countries. Socioeconomic factors were also taken into consideration.

The study found that women lived longer than men in all 51 countries. The study also found that those countries with higher rates of female murders (indicating higher levels of patriarchy) also had higher rates for male death and shorter male life expectancies, compared to countries with lower female murder rates, the researchers said.

The implications are clear. In order to make men live longer, a society must cut down on anti-female violence. The actual evidence shows we must put more cops on the beat, lock up crooks and “throw away the key,” and make sure women are armed. (Since women find it harder to use fists or even knives than men, that means they must be armed with guns.)

That's probably not what the supposed researchers meant …
