Come on. After beating that stupid ad hominems thread to death,
people still carry on?
To keep my message on topic: "men are generally more prone to many
types of crime" is as nonsensical as "women are generally more
prone to automobile accidents".
There are lies, damned lies, and then there are statistics.
Even if I agree with Samantha, and say "yes, biologically more
prone to crime" I'd have to qualify it with "because they're
more prone to have to provide for women who aren't much more
than baby-makers." That's evolution for you -- men by nature
have to provide for their resource-consuming spouses and
offspring, even if that means crime.
And, women are more prone to automobile accidents according
to statistics because they spend more time on the roads, so
statistically they will obviously have more accidents. Men
are busy 8+ hours of the day at work, or committing crime,
while the women are out driving around spending all that
Go figure. I can't wait until this transhumanist thing
takes off, so we can get beyond this money nonsense.
