I know a lot of men are too afraid to ask for it because of pride and the whole "be a man" stuff... but it just seems to me that women get a lot more help/support than us?
I watched this documentary about domestic violence last night, and even though it was titled "Beaten by my boyfriend" and was obviously focused on domestic violence suffered by women, it completely disregarded the figures of men being abused by their partners!
I'm not trying to bash anyone here, but even on GaG when you scroll down the feed, you notice that the female question answers will get a lot more answers and sympathy then a man.
Only the other day there was a question asked by anon Female about hitting her husband. Some of the answers were "He probably deserved it", "You go girl!"
A man asked a similar question that he had pushed his wife after she had attacked him, and most of the women answers called him a "thug" and a "misogynist".
Why do women tend to get more help/support than men?

Psychologically speaking, Its all about gender expectations. Males are perceived as strong and manly and women are perceived as weak, mothers that take care of the house. (I'm being very vague here). I mean psychically speaking most guys are stronger than women. But Domestic violence and Mental abuse are different. I mean how often do you hear about a woman beating up her husband on the news? Its just how our society places expectations on ones gender.0
We are not afraid to ask for it.0
