Actually, this one is pretty clearly a case of "rape culture". He couldn't get a girl (and rather obviously thought he was *owed* a "girlfriend" for being who he was). So, he was going to kill the girls for not doing what they were "supposed" to.

Ick.

Actually concentrating on men *can* be a problem. Women kill from jealousy too, and for other equally had reasons.

Making it all about the men can be a slap in the face to folks who've lost someone near & dear to female violence. Especially if (as often happens) the tone slides to "of course women wouldn't do that".

I'm basing this on the way *I* have felt at stuff where talking about male abusers degenerates to "women don't do that, they protect the kids". At which point I want to throw the book/computer/TV across the room. Because a woman did it to me.

There's an all too fine line between discouraging the "sidetracking" from "bad men" to "bad people" and minimizing the evils that women have done.

Well, I think of lot of the bit about transmen comes from the fact that many of the most transmisogynistic places (like the Michigan Womyn's Festival) cheerfully embrace transmen in their "womyn only" spaces.

That would only be a minor thing except for the fact that they get so many transmen who *do* it!
