Boys Vs. Girls? How old are we? Geez!

Abuse is GENDERLESS!!! Both can be victims.

Jeff himself started a thread not long back about women who sensationalize, brag and show off about abuse. It's a PROBLEM.

Arabian...men would LOVE to do more about it when they are abused. Often times they're just called wimps and the female gets the high fives for sucker punching her b/f in the bar. She's a hero afterwards. If a guy does it he loses his children, house and probably job after getting a record. I'm guessing that's why there's not many shelters for men .... very hard to come forward.

With either gender, it's so important to not keep it quiet. Patterns need to be developed and illustrated for the law to act on the abuse and for more services to be offered.
