"It's probably like so many other things, where it's a relatively few guys committing lots of violent acts."
See that's the nail right on the head there!
Some types of wrong'yins just give the rest of us a bad rep.
Same could be said for the fairer sex all the same as some Woman break the mental mould and create stereotypes also.
Suppose the issue like with so many other matters is our attachment of labels.

I applaud your efforts, but this is basically like showing card tricks to a dog.
The OP wants a knee-jerk reaction based on anger.
You shouldn't feel anger. You should feel compassion for the mentally deranged. The OP provided us with examples of people who need medication and counseling and aren't getting it.
The numbers -- courts, prisons, hospitals, morgue, etc -- are well documented. If either of you want to try to prove otherwise, go for it.
If you are saying that you are consistently mistreated at every place you have ever worked because of your skin color, then that’s a problem. I don’t believe you can honestly claim that.
I realize that conservatives think it should be perfectly okay to pay women less than men for doing the exact same job, or to not hire a gay person just because they’re gay, or to force a transgender person to use the wrong restroom, or to force a black employee to eat their lunch far away from the white folks, but...
No, what you're saying is exactly what ketsuko says... that I don't matter because of my skin color and gender.
Do you ever stop and listen to your racist/sexist self? Who died and made you a god, to determine who gets special treatment and who doesn't, who gets to use one set of laws and who gets to use the other?
Exactly how many people in this country are transgender? About 0.44% of the country. So you are talking about 32% of 0.44% which is 0.14% of the country....Not enough for this to even be on our radar as an important issue. This whole conversation is silly.
I understand that men are more violent than women. But I am asking why men are more violent than women.
Their entire debate was pointless, wasn't getting anywhere, and is unproductive. And you can manage to defend a minority without triggering the majority. In my opinion of course.
Social history explains such facts by proposing that men have taken power by their greater strength, leading to violent competition and the abuse of women. This approach correctly predicts cross-cultural variation in gender differences. As women gain economic power, they cease being treated as male property, age differences between romantic partners shrink, and violence against women diminishes. On the flipside, women who gain power, like Margaret Thatcher and Condaleeza Rice, are often hawkish, suggesting that power, not gender, determines belligerence. Women in the judiciary dole out harsher penalties than men. And woman are committing more acts of domestic violence that previously recorded.
Statistics Show the Difference in Rates of Violent Crimes Against Women Committed by ‘Transwomen’ Versus Non-Transgender Males
Second, regarding any crime, male-to-females had a significantly increased risk for crime compared to female controls (aHR 6.6; 95% CI 4.1–10.8) but not compared to males (aHR 0.8; 95% CI 0.5–1.2). This indicates that they retained a male pattern regarding criminality. The same was true regarding violent crime. By contrast, female-to-males had higher crime rates than female controls (aHR 4.1; 95% CI 2.5–6.9) but did not differ from male controls. This indicates a shift to a male pattern regarding criminality and that sex reassignment is coupled to increased crime rate in female-to-males. The same was true regarding violent crime.
Dhejne: The individual in the image who is making claims about trans criminality, specifically rape likelihood, is misrepresenting the study findings. The study as a whole covers the period between 1973 and 2003. If one divides the cohort into two groups, 1973 to 1988 and 1989 to 2003, one observes that for the latter group (1989 – 2003), differences in mortality, suicide attempts, and crime disappear. This means that for the 1989 to 2003 group, we did not find a male pattern of criminality.
As to the criminality metric itself, we were measuring and comparing the total number of convictions, not conviction type. We were not saying that cisgender males are convicted of crimes associated with marginalization and poverty. We didn’t control for that and we were certainly not saying that we found that trans women were a rape risk. What we were saying was that for the 1973 to 1988 cohort group and the cisgender male group, both experienced similar rates of convictions. As I said, this pattern is not observed in the 1989 to 2003 cohort group.
The difference we observed between the 1989 to 2003 cohort and the control group is that the trans cohort group accessed more mental health care, which is appropriate given the level of ongoing discrimination the group faces. What the data tells us is that things are getting measurably better and the issues we found affecting the 1973 to 1988 cohort group likely reflects a time when trans health and psychological care was less effective and social stigma was far worse.
