Male Abuse..!

Most people recall women whenever the issue of domestic violence is open.. Yet, it was surveyed that 40% of the reported victims are men..
We have a moral issue here..!!

Despite how the common legacies of Mankind are dominated by masculinity rather than equality; the ruling cultures and folklores had always hidden the cases of Male-Abuse.. Simply, this phenomenon does not fit with all inspiring images of Cavilers, Savors and Heroes..
Since the publically accepted Feminism concepts, the public gradually became ready to digest the changing morals and codes..

Generally, Male-Abuse is an urban phenomenon, with rare cases in rural or nomadic regions, despite the fact that women is such terrains are more "masculinized" by nature of participatory and culture of hardship.. Yet, and across the world, only few cases are there marking the male abuse.. The famous one is that Indian group of women, armed with wooden sticks, who would travel to villages to "punish" the men who are abusing their women.. Apparently, it is a unique Indian legacy..

"While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, abuse of men happens far more often than you'd probably expect. Typically, men are physically stronger than women but that doesn't necessarily make it easier to escape the violence or the relationship. An abused man faces a shortage of resources, skepticism from police, and major legal obstacles, especially when it comes to gaining custody of his children from an abusive mother. No matter your age, occupation, or sexual orientation, though, you can overcome these challenges and escape the abuse."

"Amid the media frenzy over Tiger Woods and Bengals receiver Chris Henry, a key aspect of both stories slipped through the cracks: Like millions of other men, Woods and Henry were -- allegedly at least -- the victims of domestic violence perpetrated by their wives or girlfriends. Beyond its brutal physical and psychological costs, domestic violence against men exacts a cruel economic toll at the personal, societal and national levels.For the most part, the media, authorities and average citizens see domestic violence as a crime that is committed by men and victimizes women. Consequently, funding to combat the problem has overwhelmingly been spent on programs that support women"
