Anonymous asked: i think your domestic abuse post was quite nice, but i should note that women are just as much perpetrators of domestic abuse as men... let me put it another way; just as many domestic abuse cases happen with the women as the perpetrator. the media just focuses on when the man hits the woman rather then when the woman hits the man. or worse, they focus on when the man hits the woman rather then when the woman beats her little boys and tries to cut off a mans dick.
I do hear where you’re coming from, but I feel that you may have read some different information to what I have read regarding domestic abuse.
In Australia, 70% of all perpetrators of domestic violence are men. This is a lower figure than many people assume certainly, but it is not an insignificant gap between the amount of male and female perpetrators.
There is also evidence to suggest that majority of perpetrators of male domestic violence are actually male themselves (up to 73%). I understand that up to 1 in 3 victims of domestic abuse and violence are male, and appreciate that male domestic abuse, much like the rape of men and boys, is a taboo issue that is under publicised, both by the media and on tumblr.
But these statistics do bely a difference in the significance of the problem that cannot simply be put aside.
For every woman who beats her children, or tries to cut off some poor man’s penis, there is also a man who tortures his ex girlfriend and threatens to kill her, or films himself beating his 13 year old daughter.
Below are the sources from which I got these statistics and stories in case you don’t believe me. Again, I’m not trying to belittle either issue, as I mentioned in my previous post, I’m just stating facts which are relevant in my country.
Today my parents and I had a conversation about misogyny and misandry. My dad spoke about how he worked with a man who was beaten up in his sleep by his wife, and when I spoke in a way that has become so familiar to me due to its use in the tumblr feminist community he told me something that really stuck with me.
He explained that when he spoke about male domestic abuse in comparison to female domestic abuse that I made the assumption that he was belittling a serious and wide spread issue. He then said that the two issues shared similarities but were not the same, that they were unconnected. That just because misogyny is a much more prevalent and common issue than misandry (a fact that he acknowledged) did not mean that male domestic abuse did not occur.
People go to the doctor when they have cancer, and they also go to the doctor when they have a cold, but the doctor doesn’t get angry because you go and see them about a cold.
Just because one problem happens more, or is more serious than another problem, doesn’t mean the other problem doesn’t exist… And talking about that other problem doesn’t mean that you’re belittling or minimising the more serious issue.
Probably a bad analogy or whatever, but I thought that it was interesting.
