    There's probably some correlational link between suicide rates and getting-laid rates. It's easier for a woman to have access to sex than for the majority of guys.

    Men just tend to use more violent and effective methods than women do.

    Attempting is not that different in numbers, completion is. Women attempt suicide just as much if not more than men do.

    Pretty much. I read somewhere that women tend to go for pills and the ment went for the more violent things such as firearms.

    I actually think I heard this on some cleaning documentary thing....:blink:

    Women get more help with depression than men who are more likely to hide their problems as they don't want to seem weak. Another problem is the pressure for men to succeed and provide, also when women forbid them access to their children, and as said above men choose more lethal methods.

    Its because men are more likely to use more affective methods.

    Nah, accepted truth supported by empirical evidence makes you rational.
