    Stuff reporter Brittany Keogh manages to write an entire article on the tragedy of youth suicide without once mentioning that males are more than three times as likely to self-harm than females. And in Men’s Health Week as well. Amazing.

    Another ad showing that men being injured (one is tripped up and goes flat on his face when a woman trips him), another is run over and I forget the third is amusing. Violence towards men is funny…yeah, right.

    Meanwhile a domestic violence speaker lectures football players after an incident (two years ago) in which a stripper complained that the men watching and paying her touched her after she paraded naked and did a sex act with one….how this is domestic violence is anyone’s guess.
