Yes, it sucks. Males are nearly half of abuse victims, I really can't believe that there is no resources for us.
Ya but it teaches self reliance well
Self reliance for abuse?
Self reliance for your ability to get through tough situations more or less
Y'know, men and women can suffer from depression, anxiety, and PTSD following abuse, right?
Dude, we're talking about stuff that leads to suicide.
Yes and trust me I've had my fair share in some of those and know others who have as well. In the end the only person you can rely on is yourself
And yes I know my dad shot himself while I was in seventh grade
That's a bad mindset to have man. I'd suggest going to a therapist at that point.
Government won't even fund housing that protects males from violence.
Yes it is a largely under represented group in our current government system for sure
It does. Men just don't report it or talk about it. Bcs we're not pussies
Then don’t complain about it if you don’t wanna look like a “pussy” fucking hypocrite
Another reason why men don't talk about it is bcs we get dismissed it laughed at so what would be the point of bringing it up.
Who exactly laughs? You bring it up to the authorities their job is to handle it not laugh at that information, I don’t know who else needs to know about it other than them, so they can get them help they need.
Oh I don't know... my ex when I told her about me being sexually assaulted. Or several "friends" when they learned that I was hospitalized in a mental institution when I had a break down.What authorities. I can't report the sexual assault bcs I can't prove it And my psychiatrist was useless bcs she asked me 3 questions , gave me a prescription for pills and I was done in 15 minutes. So tell , what else can I do other than keep it to myself
That is not okay but it doesn’t mean that everyone will always laugh at you. Im deeply sorry that, that happened to you. But don’t close off based on what people you’ve let learn about what happened to you. They obviously don’t care, and that is bs. I see your point and I apologize in the end jot everyone will laugh someone is bound to hear your voice through all of it, being a male in this situation I cannot say i fully understand the struggle but i hope you will overcome this and seek some form of justice. If you need someone to talk to id be kore than willing to listen. Being assaulted/abused in any manner is wrong and not a laughing matter at all. But you will need to keep trying to speak out in order for this situation to be acknowledged of, and for people to realize it’s an issue.
Excuse the grammatical errors
Roughly 40% of domestic abuse cases have male victims, let that sink in.
Also, do you know why we don't bring it up to the authorities at times? It is because WE can go to jail, in some cases, for fighting back. We also don't have any services or resources catering to abused men.
Oh wow, i had no idea the percentage was that high... what the actual fuck

A bit... extreme, but something along those lines.
It is a problem if we have no resources yet we are victims of nearly half of domestic violence cases.
