1 in 20(ish) people, I think? Statistics are not my friend, but clearly they aren’t Sefton Council’s either confusedhmm

Hang on so if it's one in 10 people does that mean 1 in 10 women or one in 5 women?

Makes it really hard to follow

Just say what you bloody mean ffs

The BBC article says 1 in 10 women, so I’d assume the Sefton social media person, being perhaps not the sharpest tool in the shed, thought that they could substitute ‘women’ for ‘people’ and have it mean the same thing.

After all, statistics are almost like science and we all know that nasty horrid science has no place in this issue...

From the link they’ve tweeted it’s actually 1 in 10 women. They’ve just taken it upon themselves to erase women and replace it with people which makes the statistic wholly incorrect.

Fucking raging. Endometriosis is awful and only effects women. How fucking dare they erase us.

It went down almost as well as the flag!

On the other hand, Sefton council certainly have proven that they Prioritize men so the inaccuracy of the tweet would never have crossed their mind.

1 in 10 people would mean 1 in 5 women, since the number of men suffering from endometriosis is zero.

So eager to be seen as 'inclusive' that they completely change the meaning of the statistic. Ridiculous.

The ratio was On that tweet 😆

Actually, those mangled tweets erased men from the class 'human'.grin

I completely understood their statement as saying "We're not proud supporters of women in our community"
Did I get that rights @seftoncouncil ?
