Are men naturally more violent than women?

Studies show an increase in violent offences by women. In particular, female youths now commit around 59,000 of the total annual youth crimes of 300,000. Obviously, boys still commit most of the violent crimes, but their numbers are falling slightly, whilst women's are noticably rising.

Note that the police deny arresting young female offenders just to achieve gender neutral targets (and I don't blame them if they do, fair is fair).

So what does this tell us about violence and gender? And are the causes of youth crime the same for girls, as they are for boys (ie, poverty, marginalisation, drugs & alcohol, misdiagnosed ADD, etc)?

Yes, men are naturally more violent than women. It is because testosterone causes violence.
