Evil Lesbian Update
1) Women who choose other women as sexual partners are more likely to inflict domestic abuse on their partners than heterosexual males.
Bennett: “See Violent Betrayal: Partner Abuse in Lesbian Relationships by Claire M. Renzetti. It reports that fully one-half of lesbian relationships are violent; the corresponding figure for straight relationships is around 1-3 percent, depending on how you define “violent.”
Okay, we have one source; it’s a start, I suppose. And it’s on Amazon, so it must be true.
In seriousness, though, I have not read Ms. Renzetti’s work so I can’t comment on it positively or negatively. I’d welcome feedback from any readers with additional information or opinions, certainly. But let the record show that Mr. Bennett has honorably provided us a source to investigate for this claim.
(Note: I replaced Bennett’s link to the $83.95 hardcover edition with a link to the nice cheap $29.95 paperback edition. Oh, and if you use my link you won’t be kicking back cash to Mr. Bennett, either, which I believe the original link would have).
2) Women who choose other women as sexual partners are more likely to suffer from the following potentially fatal diseases: X, Y, and Z. (I leave Bennett to fill in the blanks).
Bennett: “Life-span data is easy to come by, and it supports my other claims, which didn’t come out of thin air.”
Trust me, Richard, thin air isn’t where I thought they came out of. But I’m sorry, you get zero points for this answer: vague hand-waving that data is “easy to come by” doesn’t cut it.
