The issues highlighted in Australian Brisbane Time’s newspaper report previewed/linked below, occur in many societies across the world. Men who are genuinely suffering in abusive relationships, with their female partners as the constant aggressor, in most cases simply have nowhere to go, no one to turn to, for help.
It’s been that way for so long, and the damage (psychological trauma, physical injuries etc) to those men is often great – physically, as well as psychologically/emotionally.
I continue to push this Domestic Violence Against Men (DVAM) cause using my blog [http://tayosolagbade.com/sdnuggets – click DVAM] in conjunction with my Facebook advocacy page [https://web.facebook.com/stopdvambytks/] to provide information, education and support to those men who lack it, and would therefore find it useful.
I also do this because I want to help MY OWN SONS who I worry may in future become victims of abuse at the hands of some naughty females, should this trend not be stopped.
You, reading this, are also likely to have someone you know and/or care for, who is male.
I doubt you would want him/her to become a victim of abuse at the hands of an abusive female partner – talk less of watching him suffer due to lack of reliable support to deal decisively with the problem.
Story of domestic violence against men is hidden, complicated and disputed – by By Cathy Moore on 23 November 2015 — 9:49pm for Brisbane Times, Australia
Thomas Parker, 21, sits in an empty room staring into his glass of whiskey and coke with two black eyes. He says he’s a happy person but the tears welling in his eyes tell a different story.
“Well I used to be a happy person. I couldn’t find one person that would call me angry or depressed,” he says. “But the domestic violence, the stuff she has done to me, it’s fucked with my head.”
Parker swallows his tears along with his last half of whiskey and coke. Another male victim of domestic violence whose story has gone untold.
