Women are abusers almost as much as men

Way back in 1999, Stats Canada did a survey of 11,607 men over the age of 15. Out of all of those blokes, between 1994 – 1999 – seven percent experienced some type of spousal abuse on at least one occasion, compared with 8% of their female counterparts.

Feminists and men-haters out there always yap on about how the overwhelming majority of domestic abuse perpetrators are men.  The Stats Canada survey clearly sends a loud and clear message to feminists which is:

IN YOUR FACE!

Another study of 12 married blokes between 25 – 47 showed that the men sustained injuries such as multiple bruises and abrasions, dislocated ribs, injured genitalia, minor head trauma, numerous lacerations, and internal injuries. Weapons used by the wives included clothes hangers, steak knives, scissors, screwdrivers, cellular phones, fingernails, metal pots and pans, rolling pins, keys and other thrown objects. This study provided some insight into the respondents’ feelings about their situations and the effect those situations had on their self-identity:

The surveyed blokes indicated that they were often met with reactions of disbelief, surprise and skepticism from the staff of domestic abuse shelters, legal-based institutions and hospitals, as well as friends and neighbours.

Of the 495 American couples in the 1995 National Family Violence Survey for whom one or more abusive incidents were reported by a female respondent, the husband was the only violent partner in 25.9% of the cases, the wife was the only one to be violent in 25.5% of the cases, and both were violent in 48.6% of the cases.

Decreased Walloping Rates

According to the Canadian DOJ, an estimated 7 percent of Canadian women and men aged 15 years and over who were in a current or previous, marital or common-law relationship, experienced some form of spousal violence between 1999 – 2004. This includes a rate of 7 percent for women (653,000 women) and 6 percent for men (546,000 men).

Conclusion

If you’re a feminist – quit with your sexist bullshit.  These are the facts. Not my opinions.  Instead of being female rights campaigners, become equal rights campaigners.

Domestic violence is abhorrent and should not be tolerated for one single second.  Neither should sexist women who try to minimize the importance and gravity of abuse that men suffer at the hands of women.

Lastly – sorry feminists, but the Duluth model is flawed.  It is severely hampered by its rigid insistence on a gendered concept of violence, defined as something done only by men, and only to women. I think I’ve showed here that that is not the case.


About Ryan Paul

I'm a twenty-eight year old half black, and half white British guy living in Kenora, Ontario in Canada. For the first six years in Canada I was living with my children and their mother on a First Nation reserve just outside of Kenora. I now live in town, two blocks away from my office. I work at a local design firm and I love my job. I have the most beautiful son I could ever have hoped for and my dream for him when he grows up is to become a police officer for Treaty Three and eventually join the military. More recently I’ve been blessed with a daughter "Alex". Yes that is her full first name. She's one year old and is walking. Can't talk yet, but quite capable of letting you know what she wants. My dream for her is exactly the same as Nicolas. Become a Treaty Three cop, and then join the military. My political views are generally based around racial issues. People who discriminate based upon race should all be gassed. The world is like a playing field - in order for the game to be equal - the field must be level. I have in general a great respect for law and order (WHEN IT ISN’T DISCRIMINATORY OR UPHOLDS RIGHTEOUSNESS). Someone recently said that it seems the driving force in my life is racial equality. I don't think anyone ever spoke a truer word. I've become increasingly disillusioned with Canada because of race relations and how the Federal Government keeps First Nation people on a permanent lower economic and social level. When it comes to Native rights, my view is that colonisation was always going to happen - it's part of life - conquer or be conquered. My issue is with the way it was done, and the failure of Canada to live up to its reputation as a decent, and civilised society. The failure to honour the treaties and fairly compensate natives in Canada will always be a dark stain on Canada's reputation. Drunk drivers and paedophiles should be tied against a post, blindfolded and shot dead. Obviously, I have conviction in my beliefs and am not often swayed from them, although I am always open to the possibility that I'm wrong. I believe in freedom of speech, thought, and religion - so long as they do not promote hatred, bigotry, racism or unjust violence.
