"Male" as a noun[edit]

Please stop using "male" as a noun. It is to be used in reference to male animals, and is offensive when used in reference to humans.

"Male" as a noun[edit]

Please continue using "male" as a noun. It is to be used in reference to male animals, such as humans, and is not offensive when used in reference to humans unless you are incredibly easily offended or looking to profit from a pretended offense. Male is a term that covers half of humanity, men and boys. I see no dictionary definition that claims it is some sort of insult. And I see Feminists refer to females without any outcry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:44, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

I don't see "male" used as a noun in the article at all, so what is this all about? BTW, IMO, male is the correct term when talking about both boys and men, but should not be used when talking only about men. Aapjes (talk) 10:46, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

I just want to share my suspicion that the original comment was a parody of something contemporaneous like this: Im not afraid (talk) 18:40, 22 July 2017 (UTC)


The in response section is extremely biased and not written with a NPOV. Michael H 34 (talk) 14:57, 28 January 2009 (UTC) Michael H 34

Article does not describe the Duluth model[edit]

This article, despite being almost a page long, completely fails at the basic task of an encyclopedia: Properly describing the subject.

All we get is one sentence: "This experimental program, conducted in Duluth, Minnesota in 1981, coordinated the actions of a variety of agencies dealing with domestic conflict". We also learn that it "is based on a "violence is patriarchal" model".

This is not nearly enough. What does the Duluth model actually do? How would I notice the Duluth model being implemented? Who would act differently if the Duluth model was implemented?

As a reader who did not know the Duluth model before visiting this page, I feel that I learned nothing. --Xeeron (talk) 15:58, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

I came here to say the same thing. This page never actually describes the Duluth model or what it is. Srnec (talk) 16:09, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
I tried to make it clearer Aapjes (talk) 11:10, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Added an implementation section to help alleviate this problem. I don't know enough about the practical implications of a legal system which follows the Duluth model however the fact that I cannot find such information on this page shows that such a section is required.

Multiple references to one newspaper article[edit]

And no reference to the actual studies that article refers to. Has no-one managed to *find* these studies? jae (talk) 10:20, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
