However, the murder rate is still way higher for males. But, they are disposable right. Just like Canada's missing and murdered Aboriginal women inquiry. National News, the fact 3x as many Aboriginal men are murdered, crickets.

It's the correct term for a murder of a female. Just as homicide is for males. Or infanticide for children. Regicide for a king etc. Murder is a blanket term for any victim.

more men are dying but women don't care about people with penises.

so from what I found 1 in 10 murder victims is a woman....yes that suck but try to lower the total number of murders not just the women. ps bitching about these numbers while not holding your corrupt pos government responsible just makes you complaint seem weak and poorly thought out.

Women add to the gender wage gap. Nothing against what they're protesting against but is this the right away to fix the problem or would they be better off forming vigilante gangs?
