More men then women report being subject to domestic violence.
Yes, you read that correctly.
The CDC 2012 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey found that each year as many men as women are victims of intimate-partner physical violence (Tables 4.1, 4.2 at p. 41). Per capita, more men than women each year are victims of psychological aggression. (see Tables 4.9, 4.10 at p. 46).
Prevalence Among Women (p. 39) More than one-third of women in the United States (35.6% or approximately 42.4 million) have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime (Table 4.1)
Prevalence Among Men (p. 39)Nearly half (45.3%) of American Indian or Alaska Native men and almost 4 out of every 10 Black and multiracial non-Hispanic men (38.6% and 39.3%, respectively) in the United States reported experiencing rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime (Table 4.4).So, now that women are combat-ready, why is everyone is making such a stink about renewing the Violence Against Women Act? And if combat-ready women need this kind of a law, then where is the Violence Against Men Act?
