Want to know how to end violence against women? One Washington Post columnist knows the answer.

In an op-ed posted on June 10, W. Bradford Wilcox suggested that single women “stop taking lovers” and get married to ward off domestic violence.

Yep. That happened. As if married men don’t beat on their wives.

Here’s a bit from the article, which was originally titled, “One Way To End Violence Against Women? Stop Taking Lovers & Get Married.”

The bottom line is this: Married women are notably safer than their unmarried peers, and girls raised in a home with their married father are markedly less likely to be abused or assaulted than children living without their own father.

Later, the Washington Post changed that controversial headline to something even more confusing:

If you want to read the inaccurate and totally tone-deaf commentary on how women can better protect themselves from violent men, click here.

But I think this is a good time to point out that more than 60 percent of domestic violence incidents happen at home and one woman is beaten by her husband or partner every 15 seconds in the United States.

There’s some commentary for that ass.
