Quote from: outdoors on Sep 13, 2010, 04:37 PM ideas..anyone?I would just focus on how only a part of the story was being told and that they therefore were being a part in the distribution of misinformation. (at taxpayer's expense) I would have a one page fact sheet ready for them that offered the other side of the story that was not being told.
Seven Key Facts About Domestic ViolencePrepared by:Stop Abusive and Violent Environmentswww.saveservices.orgEverybody has heard about domestic violence. But do you know how common it is? Who is most affected? And whether we are making progress in the national effort to curb partner abuse?Fact #1: One in 10 American couples engages in intimate partner violence each year.About one in 10 married and cohabiting couples experience some form of partner aggression (slap, shove, punch, etc.) each year.1Fact #2: Men and women initiate domestic violence at similar rates.• Over 250 scholarly studies "demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners.2• If an incident escalates, the female partner is more likely to be injured. Nonetheless, of all victims who require medical attention, one-third are male.3• Female initiation of partner violence is the leading reason for the woman becoming a victim of subsequent violence.4Fact #3: Partner aggression is often two-way.• A Centers for Disease Control survey found that half of all partner violence was reciprocal.5 • One study of dating couples concluded that 70% of all physical abuse was mutual.6Fact #4: Although all segments of society are affected, domestic violence is concentrated in certain groups.Domestic violence is more common among certain groups such as: • Lower income couples.7 • Couples who are not in intact, married relationships. • Lesbian and gay partners8Fact #5: Many factors contribute to domestic violence incidents.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has identified 28 different causes of domestic violence. These include individual, relationship, and community factors.9Fact #6: America is making steady progress in the national effort to curb intimate partner aggression.Since the mid-1970s, domestic violence among intimate partners has fallen dramatically, whether violence is assessed by community surveys,10 crime surveys of non-fatal violence,11 or FBI homicide statistics. 12Fact #7: Many victims of domestic violence face barriers to getting help.Many victims of domestic violence encounter discrimination and other barriers to receiving assistance: • One analysis concluded, "the exclusion of men appears to be the norm."13 • One survey highlighted the discriminatory practices of many domestic violence shelters, concluding thatlesbian and gay victims "still did not have consistent access to culturally competent services to prevent and address the violence against them."14References1 For example, the 1992 National Alcohol and Family Violence Survey found 9.5% of men and 9.1% of women in married or cohabiting relationships had experienced inter-partner violence in the previous year. 2 Fiebert ML.

men's rights activist wrote;"According to the U.S. Health & Human Services Dept., more children are killed in a year by neglect & abuse than all the female victims of intimate partner violence. Mothers are the single largest group on the pie chart who're doing the killing. http://tinyurl.com/2ant9e7 They're killing those children at twice the rate of fathers. Sadly, there's no Violence Against Children Act like there's VAWA for women. Apparently the image of violent women is politically incorrect. V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, "the very worst abuse." The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong sex. Under Biden's Violence Against Women Act, the wrong sex is men, the wrong age group is children. Shelter & services are virtually non-existent for male victims of d.v. so ways out of bad relationships, that women have, are often not available to men. Men are often battered by d.v., then battered again by taxpayer funded, d.v. laws. Credible research shows that the ratio of d.v. is at least 50/50 between women & men. http://tinyurl.com/yzm9xhe Women initiate about 70% of non mutual d.v. http://tinyurl.com/3sakk "Los Misandry" shows the inequities that exist in America's d.v. laws." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAmOxvudpF8
