Put your beer down and step away from the lady at the bar. Drunk women are as likely to fight in pubs as men.
Binge drinking women are just as likely to be involved in fights in pubs as men, according to groundbreaking research into violence and alcohol.
Researchers involved in the study, the first of its kind in the UK, found that “relatively large” numbers of women of all ages were getting involved in scuffles in licensed premises. Two cases even involved drunken pregnant women at the centre of the aggression.
…Dr Alasdair Forsyth, of Glasgow Caledonian University, who led the study, said the research showed that any assumption that violence was restricted to drunk men was wrong. He said: “Women were as involved in as much trouble as men and seemed to be getting as drunk as men.”
I don’t know whether this is amusing or troublesome. This morning, I’m leaning toward amusing.
