In science, when someone comes up with an idea, people test it by trying to disprove it. In feminist social “science,” feminists say whatever they want, and are given infinite time and chances to “prove” it. Its a sort of affirmative action scientific method that requires standards of proof that even pre-literate witch doctors would find lax, and are analogous to the “standards” women must pass to call themselves US marines.
So I am not surprised to find that, given public funding and reams of data, some feminist researchers have discovered that when Scotsmen get drunk, they attack people, including at times their girlfriends.
Academics have, for the first time, found firm evidence of a link between domestic violence and ‘Old Firm’ football matches.
The study, by the University of St Andrews, is the first to confirm long-held beliefs that reports of domestic violence in Glasgow increase following matches between Rangers and Celtic.
The new paper, published online this week, shows a ‘statistically significant’ increase in domestic incidents following all 21 Old Firm matches between 2008 and 2011.
Researchers say the results of the study provide ‘compelling evidence’ of the effect of Old Firm matches on reported domestic cases of physical, sexual and emotional abuse in the 24 hour period after kick off.
The study was led by Dr Damien J. Williams, a lecturer in Public Health Sciences at the University of St Andrews.
He said, “Media reports have long suggested that the number of reports of domestic violence appear to increase when Scotland’s two largest, Glasgow-based football clubs, Rangers and Celtic (traditionally referred to as the “Old Firm”) play one another.
Finding spikes in violence in Scotland is like shooting fish in a barrel. Scotland has one of the highest assault rates on earth, fueled largely by alcohol, poverty and family dysfunction. Sadly, parts of Scotland appear to resemble America’s worse-off Indian reservations and ghettoes.
As for Scottish family dysfunction, well, I think the following clip speaks for itself:
Combine the above behavior with game-day drunkenness, and you’re going to see a sharp uptick in “incidents” even if you aren’t looking for it.
So congratulations to the feminists for finding that when you combine alcohol with economic and family dysfunction one result is domestic strife!
“But why the preoccupation with sports?” you might ask. Well, it’s really pretty simple. It’s a gold mine. American football teams have been bullied into throwing money at feminists to make them go away, so why not Scottish football (soccer) clubs? Football may be one of the few lucrative private enterprises in all of Scotland, which has little going for it otherwise. I imagine this makes it a prime target for aspiring feminists, who otherwise must beg for handouts from an increasingly stingy and borderline bankrupt government, not to mention the impoverished locals.
