Gynocide and serial killers
Lately I have been editing a section of my book that deals with gynocide and serial killers. I needed to come up with a system that allowed me to discuss the criminal justice system and the women murdered by serial killers without naming the despicable men responsible. The last thing I want is to contribute to their fame. I am not in the least fascinated by serial killers. They are selfish, self-serving brutes. However, the treatment they receive in the criminal justice system--and all its failings--are very interesting and warrant being examined. I am pleased with the system I have devised and especially happy to add to the visibility of the women society failed.
The subject matter can be so demoralizing that I have taken to reading the very soothing stories of Jane Austen before retiring for the day. If it were not for my very strong desire to protect women and girls I would likely have given up by now.
