Depending on what you count as “western”.

Israel

If you’re not opposed, AVFM: India, Korea, Japan, Chile, Many sources within articles on this site as well. And history, for good measure.

Then there’s things like this which are often erased:

http://www.icrc.org/eng/assets/files/other/irrc-877-hogg.pdf

You know when you hear of thousands of deaths and they feel the need to say “including women/children”? That makes you focus on the handful of “real” victims instead because people don’t care about men.

Third world populations after war are usually 60-80% female, articles often focus on how hard it is now the men are inconveniently dead. Then look at what Boko Haram (links above) did to boys, did anyone give a shit?

Did they buggery.
