Oneironaut Posted September 23, 2011 Share Posted September 23, 2011 Please do your research because this statement is incorrect and adds to the bias against men that is so prevalent. link removed How odd, I found this also on Wiki: link removed Women are subjected to domestic violence more often and more severely than are men. According to a report by the United States Department of Justice, a survey of 16,000 Americans showed 22.1 percent of women and 7.4 percent of men reported being physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, boyfriend or girlfriend, or date in their lifetime. This is why you may want to do more research than rely on one Wikipedia article...so, I dug around a bit more, and found this: link removed [According to the U. S. Department of Justice]...in 1998, women experienced at least 900,000 violent offences at the hands of an intimate, and men were victims of at least 160,000 violent crimes by an intimate partner. 900,000 women compared to 160,000 men...even if we consider the fact that men don't tend to report it, I find it difficult to believe that over 740,000 men would fail to do so.
