    SUMMARY: According to a 2010 national survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Department of Justice, in the last 12 months more men than women were victims of intimate partner physical violence and over 40% of severe physical violence was directed at men. Men were also more often the victim of psychological aggression and control over sexual or reproductive health. Despite this, few services are available to male victims of intimate partner violence.


    Also feel free to discuss the question in this thread and any implications it may have on your life.

    Edit: Looks like we're getting some very clear results early on. Very interesting I must say

    So according to the study, more violence was done to men, but more severe violence done to women?

    (Because I'm assuming if over 40% of severe violence was done by women, over 50% must have been done by men. I apologize if this study had many many different genders.)

    That still seems pretty good given the difference in size between men and women. Women appear to be giving as good as they're getting but instigating it more, so... Yay? We're equal now?

    really thought it was men ._. maybe cos women are more vocal about it and all those leaflets adverts etc are targeted towards women/ star women in them as victims

    Ffs it is not a competition to be the most victimised :facepalm:

    Domestic violence is wrong per se! I know you or other posters are going to say 'oh there's no harm discussing the matter' yes there is when you make it into a men vs women issue it ****s all over the fact that a victim is a victim.

    Why is there a none of the above option or an I don't care option? Or an equal option ?

    Why is it written as in I thought as well? Why the word thought?

    Do you think the voters have already changed their minds because of your poll ? Have you enlightened us with new information?

    If you ever spoke to a feminist or read any feminist writing, feminazi literature you really would think it's a competition.

    I've never seen a group so ready to be victims. If they had an olympics for self victimization the feminists would win all the gold medals.

    Also from reading around this subject briefly it appears that's a valid conclusion others have come to.

    This can't be decided without proper research and half of the time participants lie which distorts the findings. Don't think we'll ever know what goes on behind closed doors in relationships.

    I also forgot it doesn't have to be women-on-men or men-on-women violence, so this study could be:

    men-on-men(Apparently small).
    Women-on-women(Unknown)
    Men-on-women(Unknown)
    Genderless-on-men.
    Genderless-on-women
    Genderless-on-genderless
    Men-on-genderless
    Women-on-genderless

    Also, Russia refers to itself as the Motherland, right? So any actions of Russian aggression would count as female violence, right? Because we don't want to question Russia's life-choices?

    I'm so confused. I can't remember my primer-to-modern-genders!

    I didn't actually make this thread just from my brain, a discussion with someone on another thread naturally led to me seeking opinions from others.

    Because if you want to sit on a fence get off your device and go outside!

    Well no one's chosen that option yet so maybe it isn't flawed!
