How is this a legal affairs story?

Because it speaks to the mentality of the some of the aspiring lawyers who will be entering the profession. Specifically that they cannot handle someone stating an objective fact that they find problematic and will complain kick up a fuss and whine.

That should send a chill up everyone spine who is even remotely interested in law, or logic, or truth, or free speech, or civil rights, or studying law, or universities in general, or politics… you know… stuff that suits LC audience, which is primarily law students…

Labour’s proposals are misandric (they propose making misogyny a hate crime but not misandry) and are about demonising men. They do nothing to address violence against men and boys (males are far more likely to be murdered than females). These type of proposals are why labour are losing elections, so thankfully they’ll never actually happen.

Do Incels Get TCs?

Men are far more likely to be murdered by other men than by women.

Men are also more likely to murder women than women are to murder other women.

But yennow, muh ‘Miss Andry’.

Do people who call men 'incels' get TCs?

The bottom line is men are more likely to be murdered than women.

To deflect from this is, as you say, misandry.

So you acknowledge men are far more likely to get murdered… you just don’t care.. because you are a misandrist.
