The Post I Do NOT Want To Compose: Male Domestic Abuse.

DOMESTIC-VIOLENCE-BY-WOME-006

 

I do not know or understand domestic abuse/violence first hand. That does not stop me from having questions and opinions on domestic abuse/violence. First, domestic abuse is physical, mental and verbal. Domestic violence is usually physical. Both are despicable evil and nasty. Both leave scares. Both should be a violation of criminal laws. I firmly believe if two humans are involved in a relationship, putting your hands on one another in a violent non sexual or playful way is out of bounds and should not be tolerated or accepted. BY EITHER GENDER.

 

Much like with cases of suicide, I do not pretend to understand why men & women choose to stay in abusive/violent relationships or marriages. This escapes me. I do not comprehend why people choose suicide, that also escapes me. Choice, free will, is something we humans possess and have the mental ability to put free will and choices into use on a daily basis when it comes to ending our lives or staying in situations that may end our lives.

 

During my 8 years of college I had the experience of working for a battered women’s shelter in the college town where I attended my institution of higher learning. I started out as security for the shelter and slowly migrated into the position of extractor, which is what we called ourselves for lack of a better term. The battered women’s shelter was funded by the federal government,  that small funding we received, way back then, was rare but significant in that the federal funding allowed us some leeway when it came to legal issues.

 

We were labeled FRIEND OF THE COURTS. That label allowed us, as extractors, to proceed into a battered woman’s place of residence and assist her and her children, to remove them from any and all places with “imminent dangers” to that woman and her children. That made for some very interesting situations during my 6 years as an extractor. Over the course of those 8 years working for the battered women’s shelter, I was privy to many a battered woman’s story. I think I heard just about “it all” in those 8 years.

 

I can honestly say I never did come to understand why women or men stayed. Back then I was under the false and incorrect impression that women were the only ones being battered, abused or victims of domestic violence. I was mistaken.

More than 40% of domestic violence victims are male, report reveals

From Domestic Violence Statistics:

 

Men: The Overlooked Victims of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is considered one of the most pressing issues in American society. Everyone quotes the statistics given by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence: 1 in 4 women will be victims of domestic violence at some point in their lives, 1.3 million women are assaulted by their partner every year, 85% of domestic violence reported is against women. However, in a conflicting survey taken by the CDC in 2010, it was found that 40% of the victims of severe, physical domestic violence are men.

 

Despite many findings that show almost equal amounts of abuse perpetrated against men and women, the media and government focus the most attention on the female victims of domestic violence. Men are largely silent on the issue because of the perception that men are physically stronger and should be able to subdue a female attacker easily. Those men who do report physical violence are more likely to be ridiculed–both by law enforcement and by the public–than women are. More money is spent on women’s programs, and more crusades are launched on behalf of women who are victims of domestic violence despite the fact that men are almost equally or in some cases more likely to be victims of both physical and psychological abuse.

 

Although there has been an increase in the number of fatal domestic violence incidents against women, men are more likely to be victims of attacks with a deadly weapon. According to one study, 63% of males as opposed to 15% of females had a deadly weapon used against them in a fight with an intimate partner.

 

What is worse than the statistics, however, is the fact that there has been little research in the area of domestic abuse against men because neither the Justice Department nor any other agencies will fund such research. Because they refuse to do the research, people are able to perpetuate such myths as women are only violent when defending themselves, or that men could more easily leave a violent relationship.

 

Because of lack of funding, there are also few shelters that cater to men. Most shelters available will only take women and children, and some even have an age limit on the boys that they will take in (13 years old).

 

There is some help for male victims of domestic violence. MenWeb (www.batteredmen.com) offers resources for men, as well as a place for them to tell their story. There is also a Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women (1-888-7HELPLINE) operated by a nonprofit in Harmony Maine. Clark University and Bridgewater State University are currently conducting a study on male victims of domestic abuse.

 

Men who suffer domestic violence can only receive help if they break the silence. Not reporting domestic violence because of the stigma attached is the main reason that men currently receive few services, and one of the reasons that studies on the issue are so few.

Get the Facts & Figures

 

The  statistics on this page have been compiled from various sources.

 

On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year.

 

Nearly 3 in 10 women (29%) and 1 in 10 men (10%) in the US have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by a partner and report a related impact on their functioning.

 

Nearly, 15% of women (14.8%) and 4% of men have been injured as a result of IPV that included rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

 

More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

 

Nearly half of all women and men in the United States have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime (48.4% and 48.8%, respectively).

 

IPV (intimate partner violence) alone affects more than 12 million people each year.

 

More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

 

Females ages 18 to 24 and 25 to 34 generally experienced the highest rates of intimate partner violence.

 

From 1994 to 2010, about 4 in 5 victims of intimate partner violence were female.

 

Most female victims of intimate partner violence were previously victimized by the same offender, including 77% of females ages 18 to 24, 76% of females ages 25 to 34, and 81% of females ages 35 to 49.

 

I’ve said it for many years, why stay? I wish I understood the reasons I’ve heard over the years, but to be totally honest, I do not. It’s not love or compassion or respect or honor or cherishing you, it’s as far from love, honor, respect, compassion or cherishing you as it gets. If a snake, gator or zombie were chasing you, your instinct would be to flee for survival. Many men and women do not have the instinct for survival when it comes to domestic abuse/violence.

 

If there is going to be a real serious discussion on domestic abuse/violence, it can not be gender specific.

 

1922130_10204779183939988_785471274522002698_n

 

BOTH genders must be held accountable and treated the exact same when it comes to domestic abuse/violence. Women do not get a free pass when they commit domestic abuse/violence….based on their gender. I know that Janey Rice and Ray Rice are whats called a fighting couple, which means they have been fighting one another since hooking up as high school sweethearts. They BOTH give as good as they get. They have BOTH made a relationship choice to stay together, even get married, after this elevator incident. 

 

I mention the Rice’s only because this seems to be the incident that woke America up to domestic abuse/violence. I believe with all I am, that any form of abuse is unacceptable. I give a flying fuck what gender is responsible for the domestic abuse/violence. I am sick and tired of hearing women say that no woman should ever be hit. Thats a lie. When I hear women tell me a woman can do nothing that should put her in danger of being hit….I want to explain to these dumbasses that if a woman seriously attacks/hits me, no matter who she is, she is getting hit back. I have observed many woman start fights with a man 3 times her height and body weight and kick his ass. You mean to tell me she didn’t deserve to be hit? That man didn’t have a right to defend himself?

 

I dislike ANY one putting their hands on each other. I dislike the attention being on men and not on women. Women don’t deserve to be hit? Men don’t deserve to be hit as well. As a Black man, I hate double standards. Being Black I have dealt with the concept that because of my skin color there is a separate set of rules & standards for me. Now I see the same garbage is applied to domestic abuse/violence in America. Remember how Jay-Z was attacked by his wife’s sister in an elevator as his wife stood by and watched? Solange kicked him, punched him, spit at him while being half assed restrained by a bodyguard. All this was also visible on an elevator security camera. What was Solange’s punishment….she was the subject of stand up comedy routines. Nothing more.

 

Domestic abuse/violence is not a joke, for those involved and for those who are affected. NOBODY deserves to be hit. NOBODY deserves to be abused. NOBODY. Men OR Women.

 

What is domestic abuse?

The Home Office definition of a domestic violence incident is:

  Any incident or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or are family members, regardless of gender or sexuality.

It is the one that The ManKind Initiative uses.

The ManKind Initiative believes that domestic abuse and violence is a social problem where both men and women can be victims.

Obama’s stump for Quinn: President on Thursday, Michelle, Oct. 7

WASHINGTON — Gov. Pat Quinn is getting a double dose of help from the White House in his re-election battle; I’ve learned first lady Michelle Obama hits Chicago on Oct. 7 to headline a rally for the governor. She comes home after President Barack Obama stumps for Quinn in Chicago on Thursday.

 

Michelle Obama is stepping up her campaign activities — she is in Milwaukee on Monday for Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke — with a sharply focused mission: to turn-out “drop-off” voters who most likely will support Democrats.

 

Those are folks who voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and disappeared in 2010, when Democrats lost control of the House — with an assist from GOP Illinois congressional victories.

 

In 2014, activating likely Democratic drop-off voters is key to a Quinn victory.

 

“When you stay home, they win,” Michelle Obama said at a voter registration rally in Atlanta on Sept. 9.

 

She had a very similar message at a Democratic National Committee women’s event here on Sept. 18.

 

“Women, we don’t turnout for midterms. Minorities, we don’t turn out. We don’t have to convince anybody new; we just have to find us and get us registered,” Michelle Obama said.

 

Quinn is locked in a close battle with Republican gubernatorial nominee Bruce Rauner, and White House political director David Simas told me in May that the White House would be strongly helping Quinn.

 

In Illinois, the Democratic coordinated campaign, led by Quinn and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who also is up for re-election, analyzed the “drop-off” voter impact, starting at the 2008 high-water mark, when Obama first ran for president.

 

The Illinois Democratic study found two key facts that a source shared with me: About 1.6 million Illinois voters don’t vote in non-presidential years. And of that number, about 1.2 million are likely Democratic base voters — that is minorities, youths, young professionals and women.

 

The White House is delivering for Quinn in Illinois, the state where the first couple can be the most helpful because Illinois is where they generated a torrent of new voters in 2008 and 2012. Obama has low popularity ratings and is not stumping in some states where it would be counterproductive, but that’s not a factor in Illinois. In contrast, Michelle Obama is welcome everywhere.

 

Michelle Obama and Quinn have joined in a shared cause: helping military families. The first lady’s drive is called “Joining Forces.” On June 26, Michelle Obama was with Quinn in Chicago at the Calumet Armory when he signed a bill making it easier for military spouses to transfer their professional licenses to Illinois.

 

Michelle Obama on Sept. 18 said to female Democrats: “We need you to be even more passionate and more hungry because these midterm elections will be even harder and even closer that those presidential elections.”

 

President Obama hits Chicago Wednesday to stump for Quinn

 

WASHINGTON–President Barack Obama returns home to Chicago next Wednesday to campaign for Gov. Pat Quinn, a White House official told the Chicago Sun-Times. The Quinn event is on Thursday.

 

The president will spend the night in Chicago.

Muslim Cleric from Contentious Fox and CNN Interviews Arrested in Counterterrorism Raid

 

Published on Sep 26, 2014

The Muslim cleric featured in heated interviews on both CNN and Fox News last month was arrested Thursday as part of a London police counterterrorism raid.

 

According to The Guardian, Anjem Choudary was among nine Islamic men arrested on suspicion of “being members of a proscribed organization, or supporting a proscribed organization, as well as encouraging terrorism.”

 

Choudary was once spokesman for al-Muhajiroun, a radical group now banned in England. The organization has reformed under various aliases, officials allege, while the cleric himself has denied ever supporting acts of terror.

 

Mediaite readers may be familiar with Choudary from his appearances on Fox’s Hannity and CNN’s Reliable Sources. Both TV hits were shouting matches: In the latter, host Brian Stelter confronted the cleric for making an off-color 9/11 joke during soundcheck; in the former, Sean Hannity shouted at the cleric, “Are you that dumb or ignorant?” during a discussion of “Sharia law.”
