“A Crime Against Women”

The Feminist Majority Foundation insists that they are the place to go to for “facts” and “news” on crime against women.  However, their facts on crime against women don’t add up and don’t make sense:

Get the [feminist] facts on domestic violence and women’s rights, including feminist news on violence against women: Domestic Violence Info Center at the Feminist Majority Foundation.

The vast majority of domestic assaults are committed by men. Even when men are victimized, 10% are assaulted by another man. In contrast, only 2% of women who are victimized are assaulted by another woman.

Let’s assume for a moment that those statistics are correct. In that case, “when men are victimized”, and if “10% are assaulted by another man,” that means that 90% of all violent assaults against men are by women perpetrators of violence against men, and that if “only 2% of women who are victimized are assaulted by another woman,” then the other 98% of women victims of violence are being victimized by men.

That means that men and women get victimized in roughly equal proportion by members of the opposite sex, but that virtually all funding for catering to victims of violence goes only to women. The question that comes out of that is: Why exactly is that a crime against women? Is it that women get all of the funding and men get none?

However, logic has never been a feminist strong-point. Feminists have a name for logic. They call it “patriarchal linear thinking.” Feminists deplore logic and even hold it to be an offence.

    <http://fathersforlife.org/Sodhi/fvcan1.htm#Spousalassltmrdr>
    The reference is used on account of the important insights Eeva Sodhi’s discussion brings to the debate, primarily her debunking of the editorializing that StatCan routinely engages in with the intent to manufacture victim status for women. The figure of 21 male spousal murder victims is based on the annual average of about one quarter of spousal murder victims that are identified being male.
    In that context it is necessary to recognize the importance of the following statement by Eeva Sodhi: “Considering that a significant number of homicides remain unsolved we can only deduce that the number of men killed by their female partners will never be known.” Time and again, when women murder men, the murders routinely go undetected as such for a very long time (poison is one of women’s favorite murder weapons), and the victim’s murderer therefore goes unpunished or receives at worst only a token of punishment years after she did her deed. In the case of violent murders of men a female perpetrator is one of the last parties to be suspected and the least likely to be convicted, by far.

In light of those statistics, why do Alberta women’s shelters receive as much as $13 million in funding annually, and men’s shelters not only receive no funding at all but aren’t even granted an operating licence? How come [feminist] hatred of men runs that deep? (More)

    Walter,

    Would you please inform your readers about this study being conducted in the US ? Thanks, Jan

    The Men’s Experiences with Partner Aggression Project is a research study at Clark University and is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.

    Denise A. Hines, Ph.D., Clark University Department of Psychology, is the lead researcher on this project. She is conducting this project in conjunction with Emily M. Douglas, Ph.D., Bridgewater State College Department of Social Work, the Survey Center at the University of Southern Maine, and the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women.

    Our goal is to better understand the experiences of men who are in relationships with women who use violence. Extensive research has shown that men are at risk for sustaining partner violence in their relationships, yet few studies have investigated their experiences, and there are few resources available to such men. This is an under-recognized problem in the United States, and by conducting this research project, we hope to provide much needed information on these men, their relationships,and their needs.

    If you are a man between the ages of 18 and 59 and you have been physically assaulted at least one time in the last 12 months by a current or former intimate female partner you may be eligible to participate in this study. If you are interested in participating, please call the DAHMW at 1-888-743-5754 or email dahmwagency@gmail.com for information about the study and directions for participating.
