Silent Victims – violence by women against men

Filed under: Domestic Violence — JohnPotter @ 1:50 pm Mon 16th November 2015

There was an excellent article on domestic violence published in the Weekend Australian on Saturday:
Silent Victims: both mothers and fathers can be violent – by Bettina Arndt.

She writes:

Yet where the anti-male bias reaches its zenith is in the current witch hunt over domestic violence. In their determination to promote what is a very serious social problem – some men’s violence towards their partners – the zealots controlling public debate on this issue are absolutely determined to allow no muddying of the waters. Violence by women is dismissed as irrelevant, violence against men is routinely ignored or seen as amusing.

    Her assessment of current politically incorrect ignorance is absolutely correct. Politicians cause these problems. Export them all to Christmas Island especially that pony-tail pulling flag waving idiot on the 9th floor.

    I know it is called Christian’s Island, but is there enough space to put all of the bigoted christians there?

    It is a bit sad if society will only listen on the topic of protecting men from bullying and abuse, if a woman says it?

    Bettina Arndt’s article can also be read at the 1 in 3 website (Greg Andresen Men’s Health Australia).

    A baby’s father cried for help – but his pleas went unheeded. Talia Shadwell revisits the anatomy of a tragedy that shattered Jerone Ngaronoa’s life as part of a special investigation into New Zealand’s child homicide record.
