Have an opinion?
Yeah there is. Most people assume that men are able to protect themselves in the case of physical abuse coming from a woman, and that for this reason it makes a lot more sense to help women and take male on female abuse more seriously. However, this also causes a bias where people automatically assume that a man is more likely to be abusive anyway, when many studies show that women abuse men almost as much as men abuse women.Then, as a result of this bias, let's say that a man does defend himself. Now everybody is going to view him as the abusive partner, and not her. And why did he have to defend himself physically? Because people would be less likely to help him, because they said that he should be able to defend himself. It creates a situation where men can't really win either way. They can either take the abuse, try to get help and not be taken seriously, or defend themselves and be labelled monsters.
I think there's a double standard when it comes to pretty much everything sex related.A girl wants casual sex? Well, she is just "frivolous". A guy wants casual sex? Pathetic. Guys are pigs.A girl ghosted a guy? Well, he just wanted sex anyway, she doesn't owe him anything. A guy led a girl on? Terrible. He's such a jerk!And every average boring girl seems to believe having a vagina makes her special, so she deserves a rich prince charming that will buy her anything she wants and love her for putting out for him.
It's never okay for anyone to lay a hand on another. But the difference in a woman doing it to a man, as opposed to the other way around, is in the force and strength behind it. There are all different levels of violence (you didn't specify), so of course most is always unacceptable (and weapons are weapons, that is a whole other ballgame which levels and degrades everything down into the muck and ugliness of animals), but some physical contact does happen in regular life over the course of a long relationship and lifetime. There are many cases where the woman is arrested and is not favoured by authorities. It should be tolerated no more or less than if she were a man. But men are not having their bones and bodies broken, and bruises occurring, as often. That is a fact. Women's strength is not their physical strength. It is in their compassion and (typically) less violent natures.
It used to be men could talk their way out of charges for domestic abuse. I mean years ago. Then the laws changed so that police could charge husbands and boyfriends without the permission of the woman who had abused bypassing if she was afraid or caved.Now I think the issue of men being hit and kicked by their wives or girlfriends should addressed and men need to feel less stigma about coming forward. I mean there are some really mean women out their that don't have a problem slapping a man and even a 6 foot a man can be hit with an object. It's hard because a man isn't "supposed" to hit back.
Simply said, yes.
Id say. My dad left my mom cause she has issues, my stepfather though stayed with her. I've seen him go through some tough shit having to display great self control many times. But then again its not that hard for him i think, since he's a bitch. I remember once ahe cut him with a broken whineglass and then he had to sit while she was hovering over him waving the whineglass around while his leg was dripping almost pouring blood. It went on for a good 10-15min before they moved on to something else in some other part of the house. I remeber the blood on the floor. It had dripped so much that a broad and heigh tower of coagulated blood was raised. What a bitch... So yeah i guess double standard cause he's a bitch for letting her.
Yeah, my ex would always hit me because I "deserved" it for some reason or another, I would normally just push her away from me so that she couldn't anymore, not hard or anything, just making some space, no big deal right? Well evidently me doing that was the worst thing in the world to her and the people around, who would then proceed to either yell at me until I'm deaf or lecture me on things I already know like I was the bad guy. She would act like the victim and once even tried to drown me in the pool we were in still saying that I "deserved it for pushing her"
Yes! It is illegal to be physical.. which men primarily are.Emotional abuse... meh! Suck it up wussie! One of the sexes is more emotional and manipulative, but it doesn't count.You can flip those two as men/women are both, but speaking in general. Emotional abuse doesn't measure up in court, not as easy to prove as is physical wound.
Of course there is. I think that's a very well known fact. Studies consistently show the rates of domestic violence are about the same for female and male victims. But there are very little attention or resources dedicated to male victims, and as is evidenced by some of the responses here, they are not taken seriously and are made to feel like pussies if they speak up. It's the same with pretty much any other male issues. They are taken far less seriously and rarely acknowledged the way female issues are.
So here's a tldr of my story. My girlfriend of 2 years became more and more abusive to the point she would beat me every day by month 19. I loved her so I put up with it. I made stories for the bruises and the abuse never stopped. It got to the point we broke up because she said I wasn't emotionally attached to her (I wonder why she thought that, all I would do is try to stay away from the apartment because I was scared of what she would do next) after breaking up she then proceeded to invite me over and through a long night and a very rated r story she ended up raping me. I had no one to go to because no one believed that a guy got raped. I wasn't able to prove anything and so she got away Scott free. Is now working as a EMT. That's fucked. Anyways no one believes the guy ony the girl
Absolutely, notably in comedies! I’ve seen sitcoms where the “audience” would laugh at a woman hitting a man repeatedly during an argument.But imagine it the other way around. Is it something the average viewer would find funny, with or without the laugh track? 🙄
Yes, of course there is. And there is some merit to it because obviously women are physically weaker in most cases.That being said - laws at this point are stacked so much against men that they can't benefit from being physically stronger. I mean let's assume the girl attacks the guy with a knife and he gives her a right hook to the dome. I guarantee in most cases the guy will get the blame nonetheless in front of police and court.
Yes and no. There is more room for understanding when it comes to women because we are still seen as over emotional and weak/non threatening. The stereotype in itself is sexist and dumb and shows no respect or nuance to women... but it also allows some privilege of not being held accountable.Regardless, most people still find domestic violence if any kind from any person wrong and worthy of criticism.
Yes, some men will put up with domestic violence because they can loose everything if the woman divorces him.I see this as a double standard as , while still horrible, women get a lot more help when it comes to domestic abuse and often get the correct compensation when they divorce in an abuse case.
It seems that there is one. In my country no one takes a man seriously if his wife is abusive (not even the police because they often laugh such a man to scorn), but a woman has only to fake abuse by her husband or boyfriend, and he would instantly be demonised in public, land in jail, and have his life destroyed.
Of course there's a double standard, in Philadelphia alone 30% of domestic cases are false. Evil lying women throwing men in jail because they disagree with them. The police do not enforce any protection orders the man may have against a woman.
Yes. Many women abusers tend to be overlooked simply because the man is usually predetermined to be the abuser. I've watched women flat out beat their partners and get away with it. It's sickening how they sometimes get away with it just because they're women.
Clock him in the head with a brick while he sleeps, he won't know what the hell happened. But damn sure what ever he was doing he ain't doing no more with the people he was doing it with.No one wants to be around a mumbling stuttering drooling fool that falls into seizures now and then.
People male or female who type stuff like this about the same or opposite sex should be sterilized and die alone.
In Detroit I should what? Call the police? Hah.Lay one hand on me you'll never sleep good again no matter whom your sleeping with.
It seems that you were actually talking about handling an abusive partner. Your comment was a little confusing. If that's the case, then never mind.
Gosh sounds like st my girl would do wtf
100% It's socially acceptable for a female to be violent towards a man. This has been proven time and time again.Hope solo beat the fuck out of her partner multiple times and never even lost a days work or a sponsor.Ray rice DEFENDED himself against a violent girlfriend and lost everything.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtVHnZX8E50
Yes it is easier for woman too too get men smacked in prison by crying like cunt and hiding behind their womb. Men are more likely too be abused by woman these days.
Probably insomuch that a guy could overpower a woman any time he wants, he could just sit on her to protect himself vs. a woman is almost helpless against a violent man.
maybe a touch, but I have friends who used to fight a lot he's 6'4, she's 5'3. she went to jail for his black eye. I think when they go in to a situation they tended to be on the side of the woman at first, not sure that's still the case,
I would say generally... Yeah.. Women are laughed at when they talk about wantin to hurt they partner.. Stuff that if guys said, they would be very suspect, and even questioned..
100% A man cannot say or do anything that upsets a woman or else he's going to jail. A woman can verbally and physically abuse a guy and stupid people won't care. Experiments have been done. We live in a misandristic and gynocentric society.
DUH! It's statistical and already proven. Just deep google it.
I used to think so until I started speaking out about my abusive relationship, men are very hostile towards me about it.
Not fair cause they can punch u butbif you hold them still n dip on em guess what you the victim while the bitch kicking scratching biting punching u lol
Yes, very few men are taken seriously when they tell people they are being abused. Furthermore, they are often mocked and shamed instead of being helped.
Yes, men do suffer from the double standards in domestic violence. There are plenty of cases where even police dont recognize men as being abused. But we must also note that women face domestic abuse far more frequently than men.
There's always doublr standard when it comes to gender-related
Yes, men are as always taken much less seriously in situations like that
Of course. They don't call it a pussy pass for nuthin'.
Yeah guys have it worse. Both are terrible but guys are less likely to be taken seriously.
Yep. Why there was so much controversy over men being allowed to say metoo.
Yes, and that can be verified by digging in law enforcement and court records.
Yes... Most of people are hepocratic when it happens
A woman pushed to the brink. Usually by some over jealous guy.. Very few are the other way round...
Yes there is. Women have the protection of society's opinion. It's all bullshit.
I think it's wrong on both levels. But there are often times an uneven amount of strength or power physically between men and women. At the end of the day though if you don't like how your being treated man or woman needs to leave
Not in my eyes... I am law enforcement so you see it all. Women often are the abusers.
It is in southern US states more so. A woman can literally be disgusted by a man's behavior and he gets slapped in the face by her but if the reverse were the case, men can't even shout at her for it.
yeah women never get arrested for the physical harm they do to their partners
For sure, men are probably more looked down upon
I like it when a girl is being violent. It just turns me on
Oh yes... In favor of women.
Yes. Men usually lose, regardless.
Yes because language can shred like a dagger
Yes and no depends on the people around
Duh, thanks to libtards mutating society.
Shouldn't be but their is
Yes guy get in bigger trouble in Missouri
That is correct.
I think so yeah.
Yes, its called the Duluth Model
Yes, there is.
for pussy bitch man lol
Yes and no honestly
Yes there is
