GenderSymmetry.pdf Male Victims of Domestic Violence: A Substantive and Methodological Research Review

Male victiims of Domestic Violence - an untold story?

more...
Shelly DeWilde's comment, March 6, 2014 7:59 AM
I do believe that there is more male domestic violence than female violence in the homes. However it may be downplayed because most injuries happen with male on female abuse. Fact, males are stronger than females. The surveys that found that women report violence ten times more than men are due to many reasons such as the very increased knowledge that violence against women is so frowned upon in our society and it is broadcasted in many places and has so many outreach programs and that the fact that men are, usually, stronger makes the fear of the women much lower in an opposite scenario. The article told of facts that when marriage occurs it can lower domestic violence but in some cases it is the exact opposite. The surveys and studies conducted had a high disparity between larger and smaller populated areas. I believe it may be mostly due to the regions they were studying such as between suburban and rural neighbors or college campuses versus downtown areas. The awareness of domestic violence is huge here in America but it should also be known that it happens in every type of scenario and it can be just as heinous.

Silent Cacophony: Redefining Masculinity in Hip-Hop Part 2 (Know Your History: Episode 24)

Silent Cacophony: Redefining Masculinity in Hip-Hop Part 2 (Know Your History: Episode 24) | Patriarchy & Masculinity | Scoop.it

We started off this episode of the show with a quote from Jackson Katz. It’s from his documentary “Tough Guise,” which is a clever play on words. He talks about the violence we see in the media and how equating violence with masculinity sets unrealistic standards of what it means to be a man. The title of his film refers to not just guys as men but guise as in a disguise or a costume that we put on and wear. Some of us aren’t even aware that we are wearing this costume. It has been so ingrained in us from birth.
