I actually find the constant portrayal of men as the abusers rather offensive. My understanding is that physical abuse occurs towards men from their female partners about as much as it does the other way.

I remember an observation about abusive relationships to the effect that while men may do perverse acts women create perverse situations.

Until they start addressing the issue of abuse as something that takes place to both men and women these campaigns aren't serious, unbiased attempts to solve the problem.

I agree with you. Some friends of ours got way too drunk, got in a fight and someone called the cops. The woman admitted to the police it was her fault, but guess who got arrested and now can't see his kid until he goes to court two months later? Talk about sexist attitudes.

Imagine what it would be like to be a man and try to report your wife or girlfriend as an abuser. Cops are usually the most swaggering, macho-acting bunch of assholes on the planet. It's no wonder that female abusers are rarely arrested. (I was a cop for ten years -- so trust me on this.)

Remember Tawny Kitaen, the hot chick from the Whitesnake video? She used to beat up her husband (a 6'6" pro baseball player) until he turned her in. Here's the story:

and here's Tawny writhing around on the hood of a car:

That's the American way alright, cry for equal rights then play the victim when it is to your advantage.

The son of one of my mothers friends was put in hospital by his wife when she beat him up. I agree with those who say this is not a one-sided problem. We will never see progress until this is realised.

Violence in relationships is absolutely a 2 sided conversation with roots and consequences on both sides of the fence.

I spent quite a long while lately reading on this very issue and found some very interesting studies/data regarding abusive behavior (instigated and perpetrated) by the fairer sex, also the lack of funding available to study anything but male on female abuse. It seems in this realm as in many others the squeeky wheel gets the grease and men by nature aren't wired to often fear, worry or complain about abuse by mates while women do, so ...

The typical reply from a cop hearing a male relate to them about abusive behavior by their mates will often be along the lines of "so what ... were you in fear of that she might actually hurt you or something ?"

Conversely, the reply when hearing a female relate any instance of abusive behavior by their male mates is usually "Put your hands behind your back, you're being placed under arrest."

Abuse is abuse no matter who the perpetrator is but the law seldom gets applied equally to both genders. SSDD smoking
