The truth does not prevail. Not even in scientific research. What are the reasons, that the entire world, United Nations. the US government, European Union and many other nations often sincerely believe patently wrong fact? Then, in profound self deception, believing in politically correct falsehoods, patently unjust, wrong and detrimental laws get enacted.
Human-Stupidity is NOT an anti-feminist site per se. It just happens that feminism is based on systematic logical falsehoods. Human-Stupidity postulates that the evolutionary arms race gifted women with special verbal manipulation skills to offset male superiority in physical strength and economic power in the EEA. We hesitate to mention other such falsehoods, because the anti-feminist men’s rights movement will disagree and hate us for our commitment to the truth in other fields tainted by political correctness. Race and iq, world economics, faulty or correct science, evolution, Creationism, irrational drug policy, child porn, teenage sexuality are other topics where self deception, politically correct dogmatism causes rampant scientific dishonesty.
Our posts about Robert Kurzban‘s theory of hypocrisy, about, evolutionary psychology, faulty science, unhealthy lifestyle tend to get ignored. Interestingly, humor often tells the naked truth, like a court jester.
True to our motto: Human Stupidity: Irrationality, Self Deception we quote this excellent article:
Please read the original paper by distinguished academic researcher Dr. Murray Straus. We will cite only a few points:
Processes Explaining the Concealment and Distortion of Evidence on Gender Symmetry in Partner Violence
[…]Graham-Kevan’s paper raises the question of how an explanatory theory and treatment modality could have persisted for 30 years and still persists, despite hundreds of studies which provide evidence that PV has many causes, not just male-dominance. The answer is that it emerged from a convergence of a number of different historical and social factors. One of these is that gender symmetry in perpetration of partner violence is inconsistent with male predominance in almost all other crimes, especially violent crimes. Another is the greater injury rate suffered by female victims of PV brings female victimization to public attention much more often.
Methods Used to Conceal and Distort Evidence on Symmetry in Partner Violence
Method 1. Suppress Evidence
Among researchers not committed to that ideology, many (including me and some of my colleagues) have withheld results showing gender symmetry to avoid becoming victims of vitriolic denunciations and ostracism (see Method 7 below). Thus, many researchers have published only the data on male perpetrators or female victims, deliberately omitting data on female perpetrators and male victims
Method 2. Avoid Obtaining Data Inconsistent with the Patriarchal Dominance Theory
In survey research, this method of concealment asks female participants about attacks by their male partners and avoids asking them if they had hit their male partner.
