The problem of domestic violence has, for decades, been misrepresented by radical feminists as an exclusive problem faced by women. Using horrific images of battered women as a marketing tool, feminists have successfully commercialized domestic violence and converted it into an evergreen industry.
Feminists have even arm-twisted and bullied many countries into enacting laws which actually promote domestic violence and human rights abuses against men, women and children in the name of women’s empowerment and protection.
Unbiased research on domestic violence the world over shows that:
- Domestic Violence is not a gender issue.
- Men and children are victims too.
- Women are just as likely as men to commit domestic violence.
- Women initiate domestic violence just as frequently as men do.
- Men and children are less likely to report the incident when they are abused by their wives/girlfriends or mothers.
Domestic violence against wives or girlfriends is addressed by several laws (civil and criminal) in most countries. However, there are no laws to protect husbands, children and other family members of the husband from domestic violence by wives or girlfriends.
The credit goes to the Domestic Violence Industry run by the feminists and other stakeholders -law enforcement machinery, legal fraternity, politicians and bureaucrats – whose survival depends on inciting and fueling a gender war, spreading myths and false statistics about domestic violence, encouraging false allegations, breaking families, and siphoning funds in the name of women’s empowerment from National and International funding agencies.
If the problem of domestic violence is solved, would not the booming Domestic Violence Industry, which is immune to all vagaries of the economy, suddenly go bankrupt?
It is no wonder that as more and more draconian and inhuman laws are passed under the guise of protection of women, we keep hearing that domestic violence against women is always increasing, instead of decreasing.
Respecting Accuracy in Domestic Violence Reporting (RADAR) has compiled a comprehensive report (link given below) called “Fifty Domestic Violence Myths”. While the report primarily speaks about the situation in the United States, the observations made herein apply to all countries where the feminists have expanded their terrorist operations through the Domestic Violence Industry.
