Times caption: Lili Alexander and her cat Maximus
A piece in today’s Times:
Neighbours of a girl aged seven who offered “all her pocket money” to catch a “nasty man” who shot her cat in the face with an airgun have pledged more than £1,000 to help her. Lili Alexander, of Ruislip Manor, northwest London, was “horrified” when Maximus came home with a pellet embedded below his eye, requiring stitches. The crime carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail.
Why is it assumed – by Lily or others – that the culprit must be a man? What an example of deep-rooted misandry. British women alone have killed 10 million unborn children in the past half century, yet a woman couldn’t have shot an airgun at a cat?
