Matt Grawitch@CoyneoftheRealm, do you know anything about this? Based on what I reviewed, I don't see any evidence it actually improves outcomes, just that people like it and feel more informed. You are more well-versed on this that many. I thought you might know.
Our criticism of gender research has been portrayed as dogmatic feminism – thankfully the scientific community has looked beyond the headlines
Matt GrawitchCurious to see if comments/rebuttals exist on this from @clairlemon or others involved extensively in this discussion: We’ve been labelled ‘anti-sex difference’ for demanding greater scientific rigour | Cordelia Fine and Rebecca Jordan-Young
The decision to end one’s own life is often an impulse. When firearms are involved, that impulse is almost always fatal.
Matt Grawitch@CoyneoftheRealm Only 6% of attempted suicides include a gun. 71% involve an overdose. Guns just happen 2 work a lot more quickly & effectively. Keeping guns away from people with mental illness will help, but possible other means may simply rise in effect.
Matt Grawitch@CoyneoftheRealm I don't know whether #guncontrol would do much for suicide rates. According to WHO data, countries with much tighter gun control laws still have suicide rates comparable to US. People would just find different means.
