Interesting premise, terrible journalism.
let's talk to this chick who got drunk and twittered someone
"Let's research the relationship between alcohol and aggression in women by filming me getting drunk" was as far as I got.

Banned from every bar? I dated this girl one time who wasn't supposed to drink or at least not mix alcohol with xanax and turned out freaking out on the bartender with a steak knife in hand because he said she looked "like she'd gained a little weight" and she jumped over the bar, breaking several bottles of booze. She was kicked out (so was I for the night) and when I came back to the bar the next day to make sure things were cool there she was drinking at the bar across the fucking street
i hope that's the last time that bartender calls anyone fat or he deserves everything he gets as a result :(
Well he wasn't calling her fat per-se. When I "dated" her a year prior she was like sickly thin-looking. Like Kate Moss. So the intent was that she looked healthier, but yeah. I guess there was also beef between her and one of the bartender's friends though, so it wasn't completely unintentional I'm sure. Same girl put a scar on my pinky with a plastic fork after a "pinky swear" and I jokingly said something like if I'm lying just cut off my pinky and she just started sawing right into it!
i learned the hard way that to a certain subset of women "healthy" translates as "grossly overweight and should be ashamed, man the harpoons" when i told a chick she looked "healthy" because the last time i had seen her she had been kicking heroin for two days.
also i am very glad it was a plastic fork

...Before I watch/rate this, is it proposing women being violent with other women is a new thing? Because I'm not in the mood for any false premise moral panic nonsense.
I think so, I didn't make it far enough for the thesis to actually be clear at all. Which says something, because I made it about 1/4 of the way through.
They do promise an interview with a man whose wife stabbed him in the arm, which is of course an unprecedented event.
I turned out watching the whole thing since I'm a sucker for documentaries.. the stabbing case is barely in there in the first place, since they're not allowed access to the trial or anything. For the most part it never gets any deeper than "ALCOHOL CAUSES VIOLENCE AND SO DO POOR UPBRINGINGS." Sad, and true, but nothing I didn't already know.
