‘Man Bites Dog! How the Mainstream Media Obscure the Fact of Male Violence’ by Jennie Ruby

EXTRACT: “A dog bites a man? That is not news. Man bites dog? That is news. If a man beats his wife, it is not news, but if a woman beats a man, it’s news. Likewise, men rape about 500,000 women per year, some with foreign objects that cause severe damage to the woman’s vagina. That is not news. Clitoral mutilations occur perhaps every day. That is not news. One woman severs a man’s penis. That’s news.”
