On Abuse

It's not abuse until the man fights back. Harrowing words, but true.

In our modern society, we are taught and told that it's men who do the abusing. Fact is, that's just plain not true. Women, being far more emotional creatures, are more prone to act out emotionally. Sometimes, this cascades over into abuse - physical, verbal, emotional, etc.

According to this article, mothers are the culprits of child abuse 70.6% of the time. Fathers account for 29.4% of the time. But, you only ever hear the stories about the men.

Furthermore, 60% of the victims are boys! Yet, we are told that it's the girls who suffer the most abuse. Clearly, that is false.

It is a common occurrence that a man complains of abuse (or even reports it) and authorities laugh it off because "she's just a girl." Yet, over 40% of domestic violence victims are male.  How much higher would that number be if police actually took more threats by women against men seriously? 

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
- George Orwell

Don't fall for the lies and the rhetoric. Understand the truth - women abuse as much as or more than men do. Fight back with facts: abuse is wrong, regardless of who is dishing it out and also regardless of who is receiving it.
