"domestic violence victims are 50% of all the victims since domestic violence (DV) is about 50/50 across the genders.Men are 33-38% of the seriously *physically* injured. This is ignoring emotional harm."
As far as "emotional violence" I don't believe in it..it's a figment of someone's imagination. I believe one person can abuse another psychologically, but even that's problematic since it's too subjective, and too open to interpretation by the courts.
The law, and these stats, should be based on cold hard realities. The other stuff may count as something, but it is not violence.
Okay so emotional and psychological torture suffered by one adult from another adult is too "subjective" and "too open to interpretation" even when it comes in the form of a complete package of ultimate control by an abusive man? Then why is it every quack on a local street corner can say that a custodial mother (and it is usually always mothers who are accused of PAS) is engaging in PAS, which supposedly is a form of psychological abuse?
Sounds to me like this FR/MRA wants to have his cake and eat it too.
