How may a culture prepared to kill women in the name of honour hurt men?

Honour killings, sexual assaults, acid attacks and other body mutilation disproportionately affect women, however this problem has knock-on effects on everybody else.

It’s important to note that another major way in which men suffer in such cultures is via homophobic honour killings. The same occurs for women. The message: treating one’s family members as slaves to one’s perception of morality, and punishing them by death for refusing this slavery hurts every member of society. It needs to stop.
