Domestic Violence

How many people here have seen the ads the current Ad Council commercials on domestic violence? You know the adds that project men as abusive thugs that are responsible for this outrageous behavior? Would you be shocked to find that the majority of domestic violence perpetrated on partners is committed by women? Here is a 2012 study done by the CDC:

http://www.saveservices.org/2012/02/...partner-abuse/

"SUMMARY: According to a 2010 national survey by the Centers for Disease Control and U.S. Department of Justice, in the last 12 months more men than women were victims of intimate partner physical violence and over 40% of severe physical violence was directed at men. Men were also more often the victim of psychological aggression and control over sexual or reproductive health. Despite this, few services are available to male victims of intimate partner violence. This paper explores the extent of intimate partner violence against male victims. It looks at the domestic violence system response to male victims. It re-examines data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, research on the impact of IPV on male victims and the system´s response to it. More research is needed on IPV against men, its impact on men and the domestic violence service response to male victims. Public education is needed on the extent of IPV against males, and services need to be provided for these victims. Increased domestic violence education directed at women and services to men should lead to a reduction of DV against women as well as men, since woman aggressors frequently are themselves victimized subsequently."

Just some added data to go with Moto's feminist thread.

I've never known anyone personally who faced this. I've never seen it myself.
Just like I've never seen a purple cow.

I never saw a purple cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you anyhow,
I'd rather see, than be one

I suppose part of it is men becoming more feminized than our grandfathers knew or could imagine

And so the rhetoric starts as they ignore the facts...

Video of one such event


Men refrain from defending themselves because they know they will get the book thrown at them.
