A few weeks ago we publicly challenged Laura Bates over this lie:
Over two women per week are killed by partners or former partners in the UK.
Well, we all know how that worked out, with her ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award, and her shameless repetition of the lie on Free Speech Live. We thank Doris, a long-standing donor and supporter, for suggesting a new public challenge of this high-profile spokeswoman for modern feminism. I’ve just send Ms Bates an email with the following content:
Laura, good evening. Your response to our first public challenge was woeful, to say the least, unless of course you’re of view that the deaths of an average of 1.46 women per week by partners or former partners is ‘over two’? If so, do you have a name for this new branch of Mathematics? Batesian Mathematics, possibly?
It’s time for a new public challenge, and there are more to come. I refer you to our YouTube file of the recent Free Speech Live debate in which you appeared, lying and whining as usual. In the course of a series of highly questionable assertions, at 2:26 you claimed:
‘85,000 woman are raped every year’.
Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org with the evidence behind your astonishing claim by 17:00 on 31 October. If you don’t do so, or your ‘evidence’ is nonsensical – e.g. the figure relates to rape allegations rather than convictions for rape – we’ll present you with our second ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award.
In the unlikely event that Special Snowflake responds to our challenge, we’ll post the details here.
