    Default Acid Attacks: Telling Only Half the Story

    Acid Attacks: Telling Only Half the Story

    By Dan Perrins - June 26, 2014

    Acid attacks or vitriolage, we are made aware of them via the media on a regular basis. The effect of acid on human flesh is horrific to say the least.

    The images most of us associate with the term acid attack are that of disfigured and deformed woman with horrendous scars where the acid has come into contact with their flesh. The effects, if the acid in the attack is strong enough or not neutralized quickly, are permanent.

    Acid attacks are not new. In point of fact women have a rich history of using acid in their attacks.

    Our resident historian, Robert St. Estephe, has documented a substantial list going back to 1865 when Margaret Boyle of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania threw acid in the face of her son-in law as he was not the man she had chose for her daughter.

    It was the patriarchy matriarchy that forced Mrs Boyle to commit her crime, right?

    And over at E Belfort Bax website we can find it referenced as well. The term used for acid by Bax was “vitriol,” and according to one of his contemporaries, crime reporter Adam Lee Hargrave, acid throwing was perpetrated primarily by women in his day.

    Most of the news fed to us about this particularly heinous form of violence covers about 60% of the story today; about 40% of the victims are men. The feminist organizations feed it to the news groups and they in turn don’t bother checking the facts.

    Feminists never blatantly lie about gender violence right?

    Now since we know feminists don’t like admitting male victims exist It falls upon us to bring to the public’s attention the other approximate 40% of the victims.

    The reasons for these attacks are not really all that important for this article. The reasons are never satisfactory unless a person’s life is in immediate danger. They have no safe escape and that is the only tool they have to defend themselves.

    Beyond that I don’t care if your honour has been insulted, you were jilted by your spouse / lover, or whatever reasons a person may try and use to justify engaging in this crime.

    ITS WRONG, no further discussion needed. Wrong if it happens to a woman and wrong if it happens to a man.

    But our ‘moral betters‘ don’t seem to want to be as bold with their stand against these crimes as you and I are. They have force fed society the same old lie of only female victims. Maybe an odd male child, but other than that, the male victims are kept out of society’s view.

    Its just the way feminism likes it so they can fill their coffers with donations and government grants for telling just over half the story.

    However recently I stumbled across this article and found this quote;

    "Forty percent of the acid attack victims in Pakistan are men or boys."

    I tried to track this number down but unfortunately the best I could find other than the quote from Sharon Behn is numbers from the Acid Survivors Foundation.On their website they have a statistics tab.

    The numbers for the year 2013 for acid attacks are 69 incidents of acid being used as a weapon and 85 victims. Using a global population number of 6 billion the average person has a chance of 0.000001416 % of being a victim of one of the most vicious and heinous crimes know to humankind.

    This crime is incredibly rare and for that I am glad. I wouldn’t wish this on the worst of the rad-fems.

    On page 2 of their statistics tab they break down the numbers for us; 28 men 44 women and 13 children were attacked with acid in 2013.

    The report does not state whether the children were intended or unintended victims injured from being with the adults.

    Assuming the children were unintended victims the total number of adults for 2013 is 72. Which means that 38.888% or about 40% of those acid attack victims were men.

    On another acid survivors website from Cambodia they have numbers from 1999 – 2013. There numbers show that 40% of the adult victims were adult males, 44.8% were adult females, 7.3% were male children under the age of 13 and 8% were females under the age of 13.

    Despite about 40% of the acid attack victims being male acid survivors foundation true to feminist form states:

    “Acid violence is a form of gender based violence that reflects and perpetuates the inequality of women in society.”

    And helping that lie spread was boosted by COMBATING ACID VIOLENCE IN BANGLADESH, INDIA, AND CAMBODIA

    This is subtitled as:

    Report by the Avon Global Center for Women and Justice at Cornell
    Law School, the Committee on International Human Rights of the New
    York City Bar Association, the Cornell Law School International Human
    Rights Clinic, and the Virtue Foundation

    Notice the list of organizations who are helping promote this heinous lie that acid attacks is gender violence? All of them owe a duty of care to us, society to be honest but hey their feminists so that duty of care is tossed in the manure pile. Too bad their reports aren’t there too, where they belong.

    Here is what these alleged groups wrote when describing acid attacks;

    “Acid violence is gender-based violence that reflects and perpetuates the inequality of women in society and as such is prohibited by international law

    I call BULLSHIT. There is a about a 10% difference between the sexes in acid attacks. That is not gender based violence. Even if we include the children the percentage of men only drops down to just over 35% that is still not gender based violence.

    And what about the criminals inflicting incredible human suffering you ask. Well it is not just men who are tossing acid on women:

    Woman throws acid on sister-in-law over land dispute
    Two women accused of plotting an acid attack that left a local woman disfigured have been found guilty

    Just like every other feminist claim of gender-based violence this one too is a half truth. Omitting the male population from the awareness campaigns is the standard operating procedure of feminism.

    To reference my compatriot, Robert St. Estephe again, please note: neither historically nor in modern times have acid attacks been something “men to do women.” It’s something people do to each other, in various times and places. If you doubt there’s anything weird or unusual about women using acid as a weapon, in addition to Robert’s other article (referenced above) see Three New York “Acid Queens” of 1901.

    I’ve said it earlier in this article and I’ll say it again: The feminist insistence of acid attack as male-to-female gender violence is BULLSHIT.

    UK has one of highest rates of acid attacks in the world, police reveal

    An average of two attacks a day are recorded by forces across the country

    The UK now has one of the highest number of recorded acid attacks per person of any country in the world, and the figure is expected to rise further, police have warned.

    Senior officers believe the horrific crimes are not always being reported, meaning the unprecedented number of known assaults using corrosive substances may be a fraction of the true total.

    More than 400 such attacks were recorded in the six months to April – an average of two a day.

    Two people have so far died as a result of acid attacks, with many more left with life-changing injuries, and pressure has been mounting on authorities to act.

    Rachel Kearton, the Assistant Chief Constable of Suffolk Police and National Police Chiefs Council (NOCC) lead on corrosive attacks, said officers were struggling to respond to the spike without dedicated laws.

    “The UK now has one of the highest rates of recorded acid and corrosive substance attacks per capita in the world and this number appears to be rising,” she told a briefing in London.

    “It appears that in 2017 we will again exceed previous records for the number of attacks [but] I strongly feel that this is an under-reported crime at this time.”

    Ms Kearton said accident and emergency departments are treating far more people for corrosive injuries than are reporting the attacks to police.

    She said that domestic violence victims and people involved in gang crime may be reluctant to come forward and called on anyone affected to contact police.

    The Home Office is currently drawing up draft legislation targeting acid attacks, which could bring in punishments for anyone carrying corrosive substances without justification and restrict purchases.

    But the current law means that police officers need adequate suspicion to stop potential attackers or proof of malicious intent, and are unable to test seized substances in the street.

    “There are increasing levels of concern among officers because there does appear to be an escalation in these incidents,” Ms Kearton said.

    “I am keen on legislation to be developed to place the onus on the individual to justify why they are carrying that substance.

    “We have to bear in mind that these are legitimate substances that often have household uses, that are probably owned by all of us.”

    Ms Kearton said between 15 to 20 different substances are so far known to have been used in attacks but that there are likely to be more.

    “You’ve got bleach, chemical irritants – anything you might find in a kitchen cupboard,” she warned. “It’s very difficult to control all substances.”

    Offenders are concealing the weapons by carrying them in squeezy soft drinks bottles, making them almost impossible to identify without chemical analysis.

    The Metropolitan Police ran a pilot over the summer seeing officers using litmus paper to test liquids in east London, but the NPCC said the trial had been unsuccessful as although they were shown to be acid or alkaline, they were not proven to be harmful.

    The results of the pilot are under review and Scotland Yard said it was looking to develop new technology.

    Police have stressed that acid attacks are not a new phenomenon in the UK, with the first report dating back to 1736, but the past year has seen offences increase and divert from domestic violence into robbery and hate crime.

    Ms Kearton said the dominant trend now sees men attacking other men, but that offenders appear to be getting younger as links are drawn with existing gangs and initiations for younger members.

    A secondary effect appears to be the isolated use of “fake acid attacks” in hate crimes or robbery, where an innocuous liquid is thrown on a victim with the aim of panicking them into letting go of possessions.

    Many high-profile attacks have happened in London and other cities – where moped riders have been a frequent target - but Ms Kearton said the use of corrosive substances was spreading to rural areas.

    As recently as Wednesday night, an officer in her home force of Suffolk was called to an incident where an officer “described the skin on that victim as ‘bubbling’”, she added, warning: “This is happening across the UK.”

    Statistics showing the scale and distribution of corrosive attacks are difficult to obtain because recording is spread through other crimes, including grievous bodily harm, robbery and hate crime.

    But police are currently carrying out a survey across England and Wales, with the results due in February, and the Home Office has commissioned separate research seeing convicted attackers interviewed to learn more about their motivations.

    “The first aim is for us not to have any survivors at all, and to prevent this activity taking place,” Ms Kearton said.

    Police are mounting projects with youth and community groups to combat the use of corrosive substances, while agreements are already in place with some retailers to stop the sale of the most harmful liquids or impose age restrictions and identification checks.

    The emergency services have developed a joint protocol to ensure they can provide the same first aid to victims and preserve evidence at the scene, while every police officer in the country is being given specific training over the coming 12 months.

    A Home Office spokesperson said: “We are consulting on banning the sale of the most harmful corrosive substances to under 18s and introducing minimum custodial sentences to those who are repeatedly caught carrying corrosive substances without good reason, which mirrors the laws on carrying knives.

    "This sends the clear message that the cowards who use these as weapons will not escape the full force of the law."
