My point is that the anecdotal example of a guy who had to fight for custody of his kids is pretty well trumped by the statistical example of 1500 women killed by their husbands/boyfriends each year.

What are you talking about? Trumped? What is the connection - how does women getting killed by their husbands relate to child custody. Are these not unrelated issues?

Yes both "PC loser" and "SJW" are ad hominem but they're insults not arguments. An ad hominem attack is a response to a person based on them rather than the content of their argument. This was not a response to his argument, please note he's the one that started throwing insults around.

Your claim of "Tu Quoque" is also wrong, I objected to him telling everybody who disagreed with him not not say anything "ever", but never suggested in my response that he should remain silent.

On a personal note: the "no you are!" defence? Really? I haven't seen heard that since I was six. What a pitiful attempt at rational argument.

Typical SJW if you disagree with him you're a fathead who doesn't know anything about the subject and should just STFU. The only thing that surprises me about this PC loser is he didn't say "check your privilege". Come on AC, report me for "abusive" posting - trying to silence any dissenting opinion is the modern feminists movements stock in trade.

Yes, yes, yes, shift those goalposts! We all know we were talking about a modern western society not the "dozens of countries" you bring up. And as for CEOs - ever think that maybe that's because of the choices women make, maybe they choose not to have that sort of career. You're not against women having choices are you . . . sexist pig.
