So, darkevilme is still at it. Nice to see he called other people illiterate when anyone with a second grade reading comprehension level can see he admitted to being an MRA in the linked post; yet he keeps using "violence" and "abuse" interchangeably even though they actually mean different things when discussing the realm of domestic issues.
So, let's get down to word definitions before tackling the other issues he got wrong.
Domestic violence is always a form of domestic abuse. However, the vast majority of domestic abuse is not domestic violence. Domestic violence is causing bodily harm outside of the realm of sexual assault. Sexual assault is a special kind of evil and gets its own category. Sexual assault, however, can fall under the banner of domestic abuse depending upon the relationship of victim and abuser. Which leads into the "domestic" part of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse isn't just intimate partner abuse. Domestic abuse covers all abuse between adults within familial (including non-married intimate partners) settings. The harm of children is a special kind of evil and isn't included under domestic abuse statistics, but instead counted as its own category (abuse of a minor or minors).
Abuse can be physical violence, sexual violence, mental health abuse, reproductive abuse, etc. Gaslighting and forced breeding are actually very common forms of abuse many people don't think of when they think of domestic abuse and neither would fall under domestic violence.
Now, the study you quoted from the CDC brings up incidences of domestic violence against men. If you'd looked closer at the study you'd see the majority of domestic violence committed against men is perpetrated by other men. Less than 2% of men will report domestic violence perpetrated against them by women.
In the research Ms. McInnes cites the men who claimed abuse as not having a hot meal on the table, not having the children bathed before bed, or women spending money on gambling or shopping tried to bundle those things under the banner of mental/emotional abuse. To those men, challenging the patriarchy is abuse. It's denying them the position they feel is their birth right.
The 1 in 3 statistics covers all forms of sexual abuse, not just rape. Rape is 1 in 5.
One of the things MRAs/egalitarians often over look is that traditionalism, and the patriarchy by extension, are great at adapting new strategies to keep the status quo. Patriarchy will now use the abuse of men to derail the betterment of women. A strategy that has actually been employed successfully in the past. There truly is nothing new under the sun.
Look at discussions on rape and abuse. Look at this discussion. The plight of male victims is used to hush up female voices. Instead of offering solutions to the problem, it's used instead to derail female complaints.
Feminists petition. We lobby. We bring awareness to our causes and do something about it. Right now there are feminist groups lobbying for the inclusion of changing tables in men's restrooms so men have a safe, private area to care for their children.
There was a gender inclusive, non victim blaming PSA on sexual abuse that the president and vice president participated in. Feminists helped make that happen. You can view the full extent of the campaign at nomore.org.
Where are the MRA/Egalitarian groups lobbying for the same?
