‘Woman’s Hour’ piece on male victims of domestic violence

An interesting discussion, primarily on account of the contribution of ‘Ian’, a male victim of DV:


The feminist narratives from the two women being interviewed – Jane Keeper, Director of Operations, Refuge, and Dr Catherine Donovan, Sunderland University – were all too predictable. One of those narratives was that when studies show women aren’t the overwhelming majority of victims of DV, the studies’ research methodologies must be flawed.

Breathtakingly, Dr Donovan cited ‘feminist researchers’ as if they were reputable sources of information or analysis. Neither Jane Keeper nor Dr Donovan displayed much interest in female-on-male DV, let alone concern. They kept trying to bring the discussion onto male-on-female DV.

Towards the end of the discussion, Jane Keeper stated, ‘There are a proportion of male perpetrators who present as victims’. No balancing statement such as, ‘There are a proportion of female perpetrators who present as victims’. So even in a discussion on male victims of DV, men have to be demonised. The feminist narratives must be maintained at all costs. But we thank Women’s Hour for covering the issue of female-on-male DV, presenter Jane Garvey for posing a number of challenging questions, and above all we thank ‘Ian’ for his outstanding contribution to the programme.

The lack of recognition for male victims of DV, and lack of support for them, is a longstanding national scandal in the UK, and indeed across the developed world. It is, accordingly, a major area of interest for J4MB. I end this piece with an appeal for donations to help us campaign effectively, and to help fund more candidates for the 2015 general election. Thank you for your support.

    OMG, just how cunning and manipulative can some of these feminists get these days! How much lower do they want to stoop! Unbelievable that, apparently, according to them, male victims are potentially perpetrators masquerading as victims! What a joke! I really hope that most people are smart enough to see through this tripe.

    And earlier on in the interview they tried to cover up female on male violence, such as daily slapping, as being a lesser crime. I can’t remember what they categorised it as, something like ‘couples disputes’, but for goodness sake it seems like they’ll do anything to dress the words up to protect the female at the expense of the male species. Their tactic is to play down the female perpetrator facts whilst laying it on thick when it comes to male perpetrators.

    I listen to woman’s hour whenever i can these days just to witness the abundance of misandry that oozes from the speakers. It’s hard to remember everything as some of it is executed in such a subtle way. An example being a couple of days ago when some feminist idiot referred to a sports event as emanating a “stench” of testosterone. Yes, that’s right, according to these feminists it’s ok to refer to men using the word stench because it helps them proliferate their hatred using the media. It’s all very subtle but I guess it’s got them a long way. I wonder how long these tactics will last!

    And men’s hour is a joke!

  2. I picked up on the same flaws as you. I think that Ian is associated with Mankind. The word that springs to mind when I hear feminist researchers or scientists is ‘oxymoron’. James
