It’s widely accepted by those researching domestic violence (‘DV’) in the UK, that female-on-male DV is at least as common as male-on-female DV. Some studies even say it’s more common. Only militant feminists keep screeching ‘1 in 4 women…’ but they’ve been doing it for so long and so loudly that the myth has entered the collective subconscious. Likewise the myth that women rarely perpetrate DV on their partners (whether male or female partners). The provision of support for male victims of DV is miniscule compared with that for female victims. Another part of the story of injustice towards men is the lenient sentences handed out to women guilty of even the most appalling acts of DV, sometimes committed with the most trivial of justifications.
Herewith an article recently written by Mail Online journalist Peter Lloyd – the worthy winner of a ‘Winston’ award not long ago – and published two or three weeks ago. It’s a shocking story, and I can add nothing to it.
