Default Women often the aggressors in domestic violence

See attached.

Researches found that women were far more likely to instigate violence than men (70%) vs. (29%).

So what?

Men are and can be victims of abuse.
Media and politicians need to recognize that abuse goes both ways and provide appropriate funding for women AND men.
Many men have complained that THEY are the ones that get arrested when calling the police on a domestic violence charge against their ex.
We need to change the perception that only men can abuse.

He sounds like a victim either of physical abuse or a false allegation that is unable to cope in a healthy way.

It isn't easy getting over being victimized but is it almost always doable.

Agree with this..the physical scars heal quicker then the emotional scars.

False accusations used to try to gain a tactical advantage in Family Court usually get flushed out in court. If they are indeed false, its a huge red mark on one who made the false allegations.

You mean like perjury is punished?

It looks bad if you can prove the other person is lying and that standard seems high. I was accused of abuse; the lawyers, the assessors, the judge. They didn't care and my guess was that there was simply no evidence found.

Good judges ignore it like white noise. My husbands ex filled her documents with false accusations and had one of the kids submit an affidavit with false accusations even though they had been divorced for 8 years when this came up. The judge actually called her out on the lies and pointed out that a) lies wont be accepted and b) nothing she was saying was relevant. At one point he even suggested they get therapy for their ongoing issues holding onto the past.

Judges also ignore abuse documented by impartial third parties. Courts just aren’t the place to deal with abuse in relationships, but at the moment we don’t have any alternatives.

False allegations used to advance a case? I truly don't get this. Courts routinely ignore allegations with actual evidence. Honestly, no one cares about abuse.

There are a lot of women who accuse their husbands of abuse to have a separate criminal case launched which leads to a fake status quo. Many cases arent taken forward by the prosecutor but some are. If they have enough evidence to believe they can achieve a conviction and move forward with the case. This fact gets lost on many people which needs to be taken into account. The police and crown attorneys dont take every case. If there is enough evidence that gives them a strong enough case they will move forward.
