Feminists Myths And Distortions About Men - Part 2

"You don't have to be anti-man to be pro-woman."

Feminist Myths about Domestic Violence


Myth #1: In violent heterosexual relationships, the aggressor is almost always the man, and the victim is almost always the woman.

Myth # 2: When women are violent, it is usually in self-defense.

Myth #3: Domestic violence is committed almost entirely by men, and lesbian relationships are gentler and provide women a refuge from male patriarchal dominance and violence.

Myth #4: Mothers are children's "first line of defense" against child abuse. [Read more]


Domestic Violence: A Two-Way Street


October is the seventh annual Domestic Violence Awareness Month, when activists and the media focus the nation's attention on violence against women. However, October's events only tell half the story. Why? Because the research on domestic violence overwhelmingly establishes that domestic assault is not a crime committed by men against women, but instead one committed by both men and women. By using weapons and the element of surprise, women are abusing their male partners as often as vice versa.

For example, veteran domestic violence researchers Richard Gelles, Murray Straus, and Susan Steinmetz, who were once hailed by the women's movement for their pioneering work on violence against women, have repeatedly found that women are just as likely as men to physically attack their spouses or partners.

Studies conducted by the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire in 1975, 1985, and 1992, found that abuse rates were equal between husbands and wives. In fact, the evidence suggests that abuse of wives by husbands is decreasing, while abuse of husbands by wives is increasing. [Read more]

There's only one problem: none of these statements are true. [Read more]
