Bibliography Updated – More to come soon

We have added another study to the Bibliography pages.  That study is:

Friedman, S. H. (2015). Realistic Consideration of Women and Violence is Critical. Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and Law Online, 43(3), 273–276. Retrieved from

Violent offending by women has been on the rise in recent decades. Women perpetrate relationship violence, child physical and sexual abuse, and stalking. They commit approximately half of the cases of filicide, and nearly all neonaticides. Like men, women may be aggressive and have rational though unsavory reasons for horrific offenses. Yet, propensity toward violence is often perceived as a masculine rather than a feminine trait. We have limited language to explain women and crime. An understanding of the intersection of women’s lives and crime is crucial for forensic psychiatrists, because of their roles in evaluations and treatment, and as expert instructors of jury and judge. Forensic psychiatrists cannot be blind to the potential for women to be violent, else they allow violence to continue, underestimate risk, and produce inappropriate courtroom testimony.

You can read the complete article at the link.  There is also a section about Female Sex Offenders as well.

Thank you Mr. President

The President of the United States made a comment which gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, things are slowly starting to turn around.  He said:

” … if you give a woman, or a man, for that matter, without his or her knowledge a drug and then have sex with that person without consent, that’s rape.”

He is right but so often some people have double standards when it comes to men and women.  They see the woman as being sexually assaulted but the man as being “lucky.”  This is one reason why female sex offenders can get away with doing just this kind of behavior and no one, often including themselves, see this as being wrong.

A man gets a lady drunk and takes advantage of the situation and it is seen as wrong, however a lady gets a man drunk and takes advantage of the situation and it is seen as fine.  These type of double standards need to go.
