    More than 40% of domestic violence victims are male, report reveals

ID:	567About two in five of all victims of domestic violence are men, contradicting the widespread impression that it is almost always women who are left battered and bruised, a new report claims.

    Men assaulted by their partners are often ignored by police, see their attacker go free and have far fewer refuges to flee to than women, says a study by the men's rights campaign group Parity.

    The charity's analysis of statistics on domestic violence shows the number of men attacked by wives or girlfriends is much higher than thought. Its report, Domestic Violence: The Male Perspective, states: "Domestic violence is often seen as a female victim/male perpetrator problem, but the evidence demonstrates that this is a false picture."

    Data from Home Office statistical bulletins and the British Crime Survey show that men made up about 40% of domestic violence victims each year between 2004-05 and 2008-09, the last year for which figures are available. In 2006-07 men made up 43.4% of all those who had suffered partner abuse in the previous year, which rose to 45.5% in 2007-08 but fell to 37.7% in 2008-09.

    Similar or slightly larger numbers of men were subjected to severe force in an incident with their partner, according to the same documents. The figure stood at 48.6% in 2006-07, 48.3% the next year and 37.5% in 2008-09, Home Office statistics show.

    The 2008-09 bulletin states: "More than one in four women (28%) and around one in six men (16%) had experienced domestic abuse since the age of 16. These figures are equivalent to an estimated 4.5 million female victims of domestic abuse and 2.6 million male victims."

    In addition, "6% of women and 4% of men reported having experienced domestic abuse in the past year, equivalent to an estimated one million female victims of domestic abuse and 600,000 male victims".

    Campaigners claim that men are often treated as "second-class victims" and that many police forces and councils do not take them seriously. "Male victims are almost invisible to the authorities such as the police, who rarely can be prevailed upon to take the man's side," said John Mays of Parity. "Their plight is largely overlooked by the media, in official reports and in government policy, for example in the provision of refuge places 7,500 for females in England and Wales but only 60 for men."

    The official figures underestimate the true number of male victims, Mays said. "Culturally it's difficult for men to bring these incidents to the attention of the authorities. Men are reluctant to say that they've been abused by women, because it's seen as unmanly and weak."

    The number of women prosecuted for domestic violence rose from 1,575 in 2004-05 to 4,266 in 2008-09. "Both men and women can be victims and we know that men feel under immense pressure to keep up the pretence that everything is OK," said Alex Neil, the housing and communities minister in the Scottish parliament. "Domestic abuse against a man is just as abhorrent as when a woman is the victim."

    Mark Brooks of the Mankind Initiative, a helpline for victims, said: "It's a scandal that in 2010 all domestic violence victims are still not being treated equally. We reject the gendered analysis that so many in the domestic violence establishment still pursue, that the primary focus should be female victims. Each victim should be seen as an individual and helped accordingly."

    CASE STUDY

    Ian McNicholl, 47, has painful memories to remind him of the terror he endured when he found himself a male victim of domestic violence.

    His then fiancee, Michelle Williamson, punched him in the face several times, stubbed out cigarettes on his body, lashed him with a vacuum cleaner tube, hit him with a metal bar and a hammer and even poured boiling water on to his lap. That at 6ft he was almost a foot taller than her made no difference. He still has burn marks on his left shoulder from when she used steam from an iron on him. Williamson, 35, is now serving a seven-year jail sentence for causing both actual and grievous bodily harm.

    During the trial last year McNicholl told the court that, during more than a year of attacks and intimidation, he had lost his job, home and self-respect. He had been too scared to go to the police and had considered suicide. She was only arrested after two neighbours saw her punch him.

    Sentencing her at Grimsby crown court last year, judge John Reddihough told Williamson: "Over the period of time you were with him you destroyed him mentally and seriously harmed him physically, leaving him with both physical and mental scars."
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    Slowly but surely the feminist lies are being exposed one by one....

    It must be quite degrading to be a feminist at this point in time...

    Re: More than 40% of domestic violence victims are male, report reveals

    I went through the comments, and not surprisingly, it's the usual tosh. There is always this thing that goes on, the subject is about MEN, it's about MEN going through a hard time in some way, the entire focus is on MEN, and yet most comments are spouting the usual subject-changing claptrap,
    "What about the 2 women who die every week?"

    "Women are weaker than men, and still earn less"

    "Men make up most numbers in government"

    The subject is always changed from men to something concerning women, whether exaggerations or straight out lies, and this does not just happen in the comment sections of websites, this happens on television during important discussions, and it happens to any politician who ever speaks up on behalf of men in any way, and it nearly ALWAYS bloody works.
    These people should be told firmly, "I'm not falling for your tactic of changing the subject", and then continue talking about the subject. Just look at the comments, a lot of time is taken up with people having to constantly refute feminist lies, they must be laughing up their fuckin' sleeves, they swoop in for two fuckin' minutes, mention wage gap/glass ceiling, and then watch as the main topic is avoided, it pisses me off so much, probably because I witness it time and time again.

    Sorry for ranting.

    When I find that happening, I tend to either bring the attention back to the matter at hand (men being abused) or ask them why they insist on ignoring male victims and ask whether they think men somehow deserve to be abused... if they deny this, I ask why they insist on changing the subject. They usually shut up at that point.

    Tactical evasion is no match for a tactical offensive.

    That would be regarded as DV against the evader,under present rules.

    Sorry for adding faces, for the benefit of those whom have humour deficiency syndrome.

    Has anyone shared this on facebook or any other network? This is the sort of information we need to spread out over the interwebs for all to see. Social networking sites (e.g. facebook/myspace/etc.) are fantastic tools for sharing with people of an alike-mind and even those who normally wouldn't read up on it.

    It always has been, and that never slowed them down before.

    Feminism is the belief that Women are Just as Good as Men; and No Man is as Good as Any Womyn.

    My Mother hit me all day,
    my sister hit me and everybody laughed about because it was funny to see how a girl hits a boy.
    when i tried to push back i got stress with my parents, because a boy never is aggressive to a woman!
    at least my wife threw with knives and pots and all she could get if she was in rage.
    of course, the sinner was always me, because i am a boy/man....
    its normal and nobody does think about those circumstances....
    and you cannot tell it to anyone, because it would be funny and they would laugh at you and you'll be a looser for a lifetime!

    Ms. Andry,

    Valerie Solanas, one of the leading founders of feminism is also a one who attempted murder and stalked her prey, Andy Warhol.
    Valerie Solanas vigorously encouraged male gendercide, see 'SCUM' mysandric art works.
    Later, Valerie Solanas drifted into obscurity and was in and out of mental hospitals.
    Feminism is founded on scathing, misandric attacks against males.
    Who'd think a psychotic lesbian would cause millions of wimmin to hate half the race...?

    Feminism is hate crime.

    I am sorry you were abused, I know what it feels like and we are attempting to get help for men who are abused. We are trying as hard as we can, and it will take a long time, but we will eventually succeed. Until then, you're among brothers, we know what you're going through. All of us have been abused by feminism in one way or another. That is why we want to stop it.
