can anyone find any statistics for those claims btw?
The paper sans pictures is at
(DA= domestic abuse)
It does begin with a biased/incorrect gendered viewpoint of boys become violent when seeing DA & girls seeing DA become future victims! Erin Pizzey noticed that >60% of women were just as violent as the men they were leaving.
It does indicate social explanations of "feminist-led research, have focused on wider cultural factors, specifically the imbalance of power between males and females
" & give high unemployment is a factor of DA. High unemployment is also associated with above average male suicide & women increasing their beauty (as less hight status men available 75% of Women Say They Won't Date Unemployed Men
It does indicate other factors like drinking (I think especially Summer drinking where high heat/low hydration means drunk & loss of control quicker), & that it is a trigger for violent people. That is true during rugby, when a male friend refused to go to the city centre if England lost.
They surveyed Lancashire Constabulary with 1.4M people, "average number of incidents reported on the days England played was 79.3, compared with 58.2 on the days they did not play" - 36% increase.
Also just before a major programme (action films as well), this seems to be the time some female partners start get distracting, its like they want to compete with it & want attention just then. Not sure what that is called.
Kirby et al., does mention correlation with USA football, (probably same reasons for that as well) http://www.ejfi.org/PDF/Super_Bowl_hoax.pdf

... Ken Ringle of the Washington Post decided to do his job and contacted the original source.
She said that her figures had been missused by a feminist group and she had been trying to set the record straight but nobody wanted to know.Turns out the was no significant increase in DV during the bowl. Sorry I have no links.
These latest figures come from a normally reputable source, Lancaster uni. afaik.
This 1 is probably what he wrote, as it was a long time ago!
