    Re: Male Victims of Domestic Violence

    The program is now running but so far there has been no mention of male victims of DV as being on the agenda for the next three hours! Nolan listed several topics as being open for discussion this evening but this particular topic was not included, to my hearing anyway. Right now the callers are talking about acts of revenge or feelings in that direction against men who abuse, or even kill, females! So far it's most women calling in about daughters who have been killed by men!

    Let's hold out and see if they really are going to discuss male victims of DV. Watch this space......

    Latest news:

    Stephen Nolan has just announced that "coming up we wil discuss the issue of male victims of domestic violence - a topic that very few men are prepared to talk about, but one man will relate his experiences, and I will tell you this - it will really shock you what he has to say!"

    Re: Male Victims of Domestic Violence

    I listened to this program last night, and the topic of MV of DV was raised at about 23:15hrs and the host of the show, Stephen Nolan, was totally gobsmacked by the deluge of calls from men who were suffering, or had suffered in the past, from domestic violene at the hands of their female partners. Nolan could not believe how prevalent this problem is, and he claimed that he had absolutely no idea at all how widespread it is here in the UK - that "big strong men (his words) can be victims at the hands of "the smaller, weaker sex" (his words) in terms of physical and mental and emotional abuse".

    To start with he had several guys who called in - two of whom were still suffering all kinds of physical atacks as well as all the verbals and emotional blackmail, and one guy who "had had" enough and had left the woman, and subsequently divorced her, losing his home and kids in the process. She was the perpretator and he was the victim, but he was the one losing out the most, big time, but he just could not take any more. She virtually had all the blessings of the courts in a manner of speaking, while he at least no longer had to suffer all the abuse with no recourse to retaliation in kind because the law prohibits such male retaliation. He is much happier but still bearing his one sided battle scars.

    The other two phone in guys were both phoning in without their wives knowledge - the women were upstairs, one in bed and the other in the bath and both probably simmering up for the next outburst. Both guys said their wives would literally explode in rage and react accordingly if they found out what their husbands were doing - talking on national radio about their problem as male victims of their violence, both physical and emotional.

    Like the whole parade of other guys, one after the other, who later either phoned in, texted in or e-mailed in to the program the whole story was one of physical attacks involving all kinds of objects and weapons, including knives and scissors, kicking, scratching, punching (one guy said he was knocked out cold when his wife stormed in and attacked him with an almighty punch at an official function all because he forgot to do something very trivial). The scenario was the same throughout - violent and abusive woman and a male who was powerless to respond in kind in any way at all because he knew full well that he would land in very deep trouble if he so much as blew in her face and ruffled her hair as he battered the crap out of him. Even so, whenever these women called the police they were the ones to claim victim status, to be the victim of their abuse and the hapless blokes were slammed into the jug down the cop shop.

    One woman phoned in on behald of her brother - he had suffered years of abuse from his wife who would fly into rages and lash out over the slightest little thing, often making up perceived "hurts to her feelings". On one occasion he was lying on his bed, lying on his stomach, asleep, when his wife stormed into the bedroom and stabbed him in the back twice. Luckily he survived after he had called the ambulance and taken to hospital, presumably. On another occasion she stormed into a display room at his place of work and smashed as many of the displays on show he was using to promote his business to prospective customers, for no reason other than she was "upset".

    This woman caller also said that on every occasion before this program when she had called in to similar discussion programs on either TV or radio when the topic was "domestic violence" and she tried to tell them about this prolonged abuse to her brother she was told that they were "only interested in domestic violence directed at women!" They were as blunt as that - as far as they were concerned, DV never happens to men - men are always the perpetrators! Male victims don't exist, according to much of the media - until last night.

    She also very articulately and graphically referred to Erin Pizzey, the outspoken woman who is the scourge of the Feminist movement. She is about the only woman as far as I know who continues to support male DV victims, and she says what we all know to be true - that all statistics spewed out by the feminists involving DV, rapes, and all the other statements by them "demonising men and victimising women" in any which way you like are completely distorted and manipulated, and many facts showing women as guilty or men as innocent are deliberately suppressed and with-held from publication. As if we didn't know that already, anyway.

    That is obviously the main reason why Nolan professed his complete and utter ignorance of genuine male victimhood in DV. He p[romised to highlight the problem again in his programs on Radio 5 Live.

    Nolan said he expected the topic to be discussed for no more than ten to fifteen mnutes or so, but so great was the volume of calls from true male victims of real DV that it lasted for about an hour and a quarter or so. It seemed that he was astounded at what all these guys had to say.

    Yeah,when I saw BBC,I knew there was no way in hell they were really going to bring up male victims for discussion.Not the BBC.I get sick of this shit,this constant portrayal of all men as abusers and all women as victims.I have no doubt that many of those women calling in about their daughters,are lying or exaggerating,or neglecting to mention the abusive nature of their own daughters.

    OK,
    So, this was put on the radio at a quarter past eleven at night, when most free thinking people are in bed.
    Yet all day on radio we get messages about how badly women are abused, when the majority of women are listening.
    Bugger me, it seems like a cop-out to me, heard of prime-time radio?
    BTW Ledburian, don't get me wrong, I say thanks for the report, but I think, once again, the Mens cause has been duped by the media.
