British study 5 years ago found women ‘more controlling and aggressive than men’ in relationships

28 Jun

Unsurprising to us red-pilled manospherians, but someone just saw it and linked to it yesterday on Twitter:

Women are more likely than men to be aggressive and controlling towards their partner, according to a study.

The research found that women showed controlling behaviour along with serious levels of threats, intimidation and physical violence when in a relationship more often than men.

More than 1,000 young men and women were questioned about any “Intimate Partner Violence” (IPV) they had inflicted on a girlfriend or boyfriend, or been subjected to themselves.


The results are in contrast to earlier studies which suggested women are almost always the victims of such behaviour.

Dr Elizabeth Bates, who led the study at the University of Cumbria, said: “Previous studies have sought to explain male violence towards women as arising from patriarchal values, which motivate men to seek to control women’s behaviour, using violence if necessary.”

“This study found that women demonstrated a desire to control their partners and were more likely to use physical aggression than men.

“It wasn’t just pushing and shoving,” said Dr Bates, who presented the results at a meeting of the British Psychological Society in Glasgow. “Some people were circling the boxes for things like beating up, kicking, and threatening to use a weapon.

“In terms of high levels of control and aggression, there was no difference between men and women.”

    Even if this little bit of the scientifically-validated obvious had been widely publicized at the time, the overwhelming reaction by everyone would have been a great big shrug – as opposed to if the sexes had been reversed and the study found men to be controlling monsters, in which case a whole raft of new draconian misandric legislation would have followed on its heels.

    My daughter has a book written by a priest decades ago, The Catholic Girls Guide, in it he mentions that women were affected more greatly by the fall them men. He also mentions, if I recall correctly, that women need men in charge of them because of the depths to which they have fallen.

    Women are more affected, more debilitated by the effects of original sin and are therefore more prone to negative effects of original sin.

    Just look around, women who have been freed from the constraints put on them by a male dominated society are now free murder their children, they are free to spread their legs at the drop of hat. They are free and they have shown themselves to be violent murders who commit infanticide routinely.

    Of course they are more violent, in thought and in deed, and without men to temper their violence and curb their lust we see what they have become.

    Hell, even “pro-life” women will defend women who murder their own by arguing why they should not be punished for killing their child.

    And they call the patriarchy evil.

      I certainly agree that we can see what happens when females have no restraints at all, and it’s very ugly…
