Women are “equally guilty” as men of domestic violenceFacts around us dispute this absurd claim. The number of women in hospitals and morgues alone make a mockery of the idea that men are going through the same at the hands of women. Professor Surinder Jaswal of TISS conducted a study of women admitted to rural and urban hospitals in Thane as Medico-legal cases and found that 53% of them had injuries due to domestic violence. Men’s Rights Activists conveniently hide behind the pretense that no records are maintained for male victims of domestic violence, therefore their claims must be accepted as fact. However, male victims of assault landing up in hospitals can be tracked. It is one example of official records that are neutrally maintained that can be accessed. Another would be cases filed against wives and husbands for “provoking suicide”, which would give them exact numbers for how many commit suicide because of their wives (another bogus claim, addressed later). Currently, the data on record does not support this absurd claim, but that doesn’t stop them from claiming it anyway.
Men are physically stronger, but mental violence is equal/worse by womenI challenge any reader of this post to do their own research of family discussions. Videotape it, because you will not believe the results you get. Mark number of times for:
- How many times did a man interrupt a woman and how many times did a woman interrupt a man.
- How many times was a sarcastic or otherwise derogatory comment made by a woman to a man and a man to a woman.
- How many times did a man’s voice not count toward a group decision and how many times did a woman’s voice not count toward a group decision.
- Any outright abuse directed at men. Any outright abuse directed at women. (Bad words, swear words, accusations about self-worth like income, character, intelligence, wastefulness, etc)
