WOMEN ABUSE MEN TOO
This topic never gets discussed. It is important to recognise that men suffer under the hands of domestic violence too. It is even harder for them to come forward, they are men - society demands they "act accordingly", so it would be very rare for a man to open a case of assault at SAPS.
(Reuters Health) - Men who experience domestic violence and abuse often don’t seek help until the problem becomes a crisis, researchers say.
Men tend to worry they would not be believed, or that they would be perceived as less masculine if they reported abuse, their analysis found.
Along with fearing they wouldn’t be believed or would be seen as weak, men often stayed in abusive relationships because they felt committed to or concerned about their partners. In other cases, they were too depressed, despondent or traumatized to gather the strength to leave.
