Women who strike fear into their partners

In this mornings Hearld

Kiwi women are an unusually possessive lot – if you believe their partners.

A national survey reported today by the Families Commission has found that one in every seven Kiwi men say their partners get angry if they speak to other women, compared with only 9 per cent of women who say the same about their male partners……………

The commission’s principal analyst, Radha Balakrishnan, said the report would be sure to spark debate.

“There is some uncertainty over the nature of the questions – whether you have fear in there, whether you have adequate context,” she said.

Long-term studies of people born in Christchurch and Dunedin in the 1970s have also found similar proportions of men and women being assaulted by their partners, but crime and health statistics show men are responsible for the vast majority of serious violence.

The New Zealand report’s results differ from similar surveys in North America and Britain.

Once again a representative of the Familes Comission shows their bais against men and an ideology that views domestic violence from a flawed feminist perspective.

  1. Hmmmnnn,
    Scary, eh?
    Plus, as previously forewarned in a Father and Child magazine article…

    The Herald note that Emotional Abuse is the growing option…

    …what do you know, we men commit almost all of the sexual abuse, but kiwi women commit nearly half the emotional abuse, and two thirds of the harm to children!

  2. There is a man drought in NZ.
    Why would you marry a NZ woman? She would have to be exceptional compared to her peers.

  5. It’s not just men who should feel afraid of the many modern NZ women who abuse. It’ll be interesting to see if the female perpetrator gets sentencing lite as seems to be the case for too many women who are violent criminals. The anti-smacking law did nothing to spare this poor infant boy –
    Reported on today’s NZ Stuff website:

    In her opening address, crown prosecutor Deborah Marshall said the case was “about a mother who was angry at her three-year-old son because he wet the bed”.

    She said Mikaio had taken her anger out on Benjamin with such violence that he had been sent to Starship Hospital.

    A year on from the incident, Benjamin was still recovering from his severe injuries, Ms Marshall said.

    The court heard how, on the weekend before the assault, Benjamin had spent a normal weekend with his family going shopping, attending church and watching television.

    “However, by the afternoon of Monday, June 30, he was in a very bad way.”

    Ms Marshall said Benjamin was brought to Starship Hospital deeply unconscious, suffering from severe head trauma and extensive bruising to his buttocks, pelvis and chest.

    He had two fractures to his pelvis, two fractures to his right hand, a fractured left hand and a fractured foot.

    “If he had not received medical attention it was likely he would have died.”
    Reported in today’s NZ Stuff news website
    Ms Marshall said Mikaio had caused all of these injuries.

    The court was told that, early in the morning, the accused had gone into her sons bedroom and became angry when she discovered he had wet the bed.

    The crown alleged Mikaio then “whacked him around the head a few times and threw his head against the floor”.
