Bad Excuses for Misogyny

The New York Times has an article about how the Spanish government is dealing with the recent increasing in violence against women, especially wives, this year. The article deserves to be read on its own. However, I would point out the excuses that some people are making:
Some conservative newspaper commentators have argued that men are also victims, since they sometimes kill themselves after they murder their women.

Spain's Conference of Catholic Bishops, meanwhile, issued a manifesto on sexual morality in February that blames the sexual revolution for the abuse of women. "The sexual revolution has separated sex from marriage, and procreation from love," it said. Its "bitter fruits" are "domestic violence, sexual abuse, and homeless children."
