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 correctnessRace 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:

How feminists corrupt Domestic Violence research

ostrichPlease 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.

Cartoon_of_a_Woman_Slapping_a_Man_on_the_Cheek_clipart_imageDr. Murray Strauss omits the evolutionary based male chivalry and female victimhood as an instrument of power.

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.


Method 3. Cite Only Studies That Show Male Perpetration

I could list a large number of journal articles showing selective citation, but instead I will illustrate the process with official document examples to show that this method of concealment and distortion is institutionalized in publications of governments, the United Nations, and the World Health Organization.

 

Method 4. Conclude That Results Support Feminist Beliefs When They Do Not

The studies cited above, in addition to illustrating selective citation, there are also examples of the ability of ideological commitment to lead researchers to misinterpret the results of their own research.

 

Method 5. Create Evidence by Citation

The Kernsmith study, the World Health Organization report, and the pattern of selective citation show how ideology can be converted into what can be called “evidence by citation” or what Gelles (1980) calls the “woozle effect.” A woozle effect occurs when frequent citation of previous publications that lack evidence mislead us into thinking there is evidence.

 

Method 6. Obstruct Publication of Articles and Obstruct Funding Research That Might Contradict the Idea that Male Dominance Is the Cause of PV

I have documentation for only one case of publication being blocked, but I think this has often happened. The more frequent pattern is self-censorship by authors fearing that it will happen or that publication of such a study will undcrn1ine thcir reputation, and, in the case of graduate students, the ability to obtain a job.

An example of denying funding to research that might contradict the idea that PV is a male-only crime is the call for proposals to investigate partner violence issued in December 2005 by the National Institute of Justice. The announcement stated that proposals to investigate male victimization would not be eligible

 

Method 7. Harass, Threaten, and Penalize Researchers Who Produce Evidence That Contradicts Feminist Beliefs

Suzanne Steinmetz made the mistake of publishing a book and articles (Steinmetz 1977, 1977-1978) which clearly showed about equal rates of perpetration by males and females. Anger over this resulted in a bomb threat at her daughters’ wedding, and she was the object of a letter writing campaign to deny her promotion and tenure at the University of Delaware. Twenty years later the same processes resulted in a lecturer at the University of Manitoba whose dissertation found gender symmetry in PV being denied promotion and tenure. My own experiences have included having one of my graduate students being warned at a conference that she will never get a job if she does her PhD research with me. At the University of Massachusetts, I was prevented from speaking by shouts and stomping.

Amazing listing. We are awe-struck. With such faulty research based dirty methods, world politics are changed. The legislation of nations and continents are changed. Victimization theories, harassment laws, rape legislation, and sexist laws like Violence against WOMEN act are justified. Family courts victimize men and prevent the healthy development of their offspring. All this justified by systematical falsification of research!

Concluding Comments

The seven methods described above have created a climate of fear that has inhibited research and publication on gender symmetry in PV and largely explain why an ideology and treatment modality has persisted for 30 years, despite hundreds of studies which provide evidence on the multiplicity of risk factors for PV, of which patriarchy is only one.

    Feminists getting caught red-handed at obstructing scientific research in order to “prove” their favorite theories, and in order to enforce anti-male laws world wide?

    This is another proof of a serious conspiracy, and it shows the methods, in all details.

    We are dealing with a simple topic with clear numbers and statistics. No opinion and interpretatin needed.

    And data gets hidden, omitted, falsified, or not even gathered.

    The methods of feminist take-over of academia described in detail by a reputable academic researcher, in 2007. And no protest, no action. No further research to show feminist falsifications.

    On a very similar theme which has once again reared its ugly head – morality in the media, or more specifically: there is a group headed by radical femiservatives that are presently lobbying (or should that be ‘threatening’) all of the US Presidential candiates to totally prohibit ALL pornography, in all formats – not just online porn.
    They have a special website here:
    http://www.pornharms.com/
    And they have a mission statement at the top of its homepage stating thus:
    “This site is dedicated to providing the most accurate peer-reviewed research on the harm from pornography, along with relevant news, opinion and personal experience.”
    I had a good browse around the site and all of the ‘peer-reviewed research that’s mentioned, appears to be the OPINIONs of some psychologists and other self-appointed experts etc…
    It is nonsense really.
    I didn’t find anything that was substantiated by cold hard facts like statistics or scientific reports: where they conduct social experiments on selected demographics, then publish the results of such experiments or research…
    Sure they have many stories there from ‘victims’ of things like ‘pornography addiction’, but no real factual reports as to HOW these individuals became porn addicts. I could not find one cold hard undeniable reason given as to HOW a patient became so addicted, therefore HOW pornography had in fact harmed him or her; just a few general suggestions – opinions.
    It is this type of reporting (mere opinions of some self proclaimed experts) that the feminist movement refer to as ‘scientific research’ and use it to convince governments that their claims about things such as PV really are a problem and only men are the offenders, or whatever else they claim men are doing wrong. This ‘scientific research’ they claim to be able to produce, (but nobody in government dares to question or demands to see) is used in conjunction with their hysterical hyperbole to successfully convince the heads of states to enact ridiculous laws and to peddle nonsense propaganda against just about anything men do that they do not approve of…

    Thought you might find this one interesting from the Land Downunder:

    Female teenage girls commit MORE domestic violence then boys.

    http://www.avoiceformen.com/men/shaming-male-high-school-students-aussie-style/

    seems quite obvious because girls are encourage to “throw stones at boys”, to beat, and are aware of their total impunity.

    they are also aware that , if the boy hits back, he gets beaten by white knights, and arrested.

    Plenty of encouragement.
