On the first point, its true that man are responsible for the majority of domestic violence, but the British police released statistics last year that said that 40% of their domestic Violence calls were from men being attacked by their women.



40% is still a minority but its a very significant one. And thats not going into the whole thing that its really, really hard for men to admit to being attacked by the "weaker" gender, so that number could be skewed too. And the other thing is that the calls are often not taken seriously either.

So, ya there is grey in this area,

The phrase “man up” and the related idea that it’s somehow less bad for a man to be vandalised in some way. The greater threshold of pain and suffering before sympathy or support kicks in from third parties and the general tendency of third parties to side against you.

True.
For me personally the worst is having to be the pursuer rather than the pursued when it comes to the whole man/woman thing.

Yes, T, you have a point, but I'm guessing that more broken female bones turn up at A&E than male ones.

I don't hate to be a man at all. After all, each man has a female side.
If I hated to be a man, then I would have been a transgender.

But if I had to be born again and I could choose, I think I would choose to be a cat, smart, intelligent, kissable, and no worries about the daily news, politics, money etc.

A very very quick search suggests its about 60% female, so ya.

I found this graph on reddit. which broke it down. Of course I cant verify the accuracy of this.

But is this a graph of fractures due to domestic violence?

Domestic violence doesn't always get as far as broken bones, but that doesn't mean other injuries inflicted by family members isn't domestic abuse.

Stab wounds have been known to go unreported and untreated, broken bones, cuts, bruises and burns, certainly.

Domestic violence is very under-reported for fear, shame and all sorts of reasons. The cultures surrounding familial violence are different for men, women and children, so any reporting statistics are likely to be inaccurate.

I wonder if perhaps as it becomes more socially unacceptable for men to be violent towards women and that culture is changing, the women's violence towards men culture is also changing. It leaves men somewhat defenceless if they can't hit back, or restrain to defend themselves.

There is also this idea that women are too weak to hurt men. Indeed, if I thump the average Welsh man on the upper arm it results in giggling, but a knee between the legs, or an angry attack with an implement would be a different story. Women can physically hurt men, do physically hurt men and it does cause psychological damage.

It pains me to think that some women aren't respecting the change in culture of men's abuse against women which some of us have worked so hard for.

I do agree with you, jac, but for the purposes of this thread, I would prefer to overlook female aggression.

My father was a cross dresser who made me play with dolls when I was a child, and my mother (mommy) used to make me wear a little gingham pinafore to do the housework for her when she was away at her feminist meetings. When I got a little older she used to take me along with her, of course. However, I feel sure that none of this has anything to do with my attitude towards men.

Fair enough I suppose.

Well, as a man, its obviously not very pleasant reading that list of statistics. It's very hard not to feel judged by it. However, I have to balance that by the fact that (a) I dont hate being a man at all, nor do I feel I need to do so because other members of my gender have done horrid things, and (b) I have not raided my hand to a woman, ever. In fact I have defended woman who were bieng attacked,

The closest I ever came to was when I was out woth my first GF, and our relationship was a bit strained, and I had 3 or 4 beers, and I got REALLY aggressive twoards her. I'm a big guy, so me being agressive is probably a scary sight When I sobered up I was shocked and resolved to never have that much to drink again, especially in the company of a woman. And I never have.

That said the same woman used to make me drink a glass of wine after that as apparently I get really cuddly after just one, so I think she forgave me. cheers

although is true men got the higher % of abuse and etc.. women still do it to and frankly have a higher chance of a lower sentence. thanks to society being born a man is almost a curse. no matter the percentage if one man or woman does some sort of crime its one to many. plus we men have to compete against a former relationship. women think that all men are like their ex. hopefully one day women will smarten up n realize every man is his owne person.

How you have another reason besides being white that you can feel guilty for Harbal. Keep it up and you're going to start getting depressed. professor

I think in lots of ways, it is tough being a good man.

Yes, your gender is responsible for all of the above, but the majority of men abhor all of them, and would never take part in them (except perhaps the driving; nob-brain winning and claiming to be good at sex grin )

But being a good man means standing up against all the violence and not allowing it to happen on your watch.
Lots of domestic and random violence has been stopped by a watchful brother; neighbour or stranger.
