High on this morning's list of News items here in Blighty is "the problem of male violence against women".
Just yesterday, the lead story was the murder of a female toddler by the Lesbian 'partner' of the child's mother. The murderer is a keen amateur boxer. When family and neighbours expressed anxieties about the treatment of the child, social workers were fobbed off with a claim that the complainants were prejudiced against a Lesbian relationship.
Last week, our main story was the murder of Baby Arthur by the woman with whom his father was living.
I am not saying that there is no male violence against women. I am not saying that 'stepmothers' are necessarily vicious. I am not saying that Lesbians are all, or even often, murderous psychopaths.
Indeed, I strongly and completely repudiate all and any such wicked generalisations because what I am urging is the discontinuance of all stereotyping.
Even the stereotyping of males.
