In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical (sic), racial or religious group,
: the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group
However, does this clearly extend to mass murder for/by gender or sex?
All of this is prompted by a passage I saw in Stieg Larsson's English translation of his third novel in the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. [In Swedish called Män som hatar kvinnor, i.e. Men who hate Women] (BTW, the first time I have seen it used to apply to murder by sex.)
The women of Anatolia took to the sword to crush invasion from the Caucasus, after the male soldiers were all slaughtered in a far-reaching genocide.
This brings to mind the Srebrenica massacre, in which the victims were not only Muslim, but also only men and boys of military age...
However, Homicide is legally defined as "the deliberate and unlawful killing of one person by another; murder.".
And these are all individual murders.
In other words, since the Latin prefix hom meaning "man" usually extends to all humans, is there another word for the massacre of only men? Or for that matter, the massacre of only women?
Could we extend this to LGBTQ+ people?
Given the present volatile political situation in most of the world, I am thinking we need to define this more clearly.
***NB I have seen Can "genocide" be used for the mass murder of disabled people? and I am not sure that this answers the question.
