William Collins (mra-uk) responds to Ally Fogg’s critique of his claim about a gender bias in custodal sentences

On last Sunday’s The Big Questions – a video of which is on our YouTube channel – I made the point that women are deemed by the criminal justice system to have so little moral agency, that if male criminals were sentenced as leniently as female criminals, five out of six men in British prisons wouldn’t be there.

Yesterday Ally Fogg posted a highly critical review of the basis of the claim, an article by William Collins (mra-uk). Collins has just published an outstanding response, with links both to his original article, and to Fogg’s critique. There’s also a link at the end to Collins’s critique of the highly gynocentric Corston Report. Enjoy.
