Is Domestic Violence against Men a hidden Crime?



For both men and women, domestic violence includes kicking, slapping, hitting, pushing throwing objects, slamming doors or striking the other with objects or even abusing. Also it can be mental or emotional.  It is common to note that there are many reports of domestic violence against women especially in African countries. Very few cases have been reported of men being affected in the same way. However, in actual sense many men have been assaulted and even raped by either their wives or other women.

Could the issue be that culturally men think they are the bosses and cannot report such cases, or because they are more feminists supporting women that the male gender?

According to African culture no man is supposed to be vulnerable, to be a man, u must be strong and never cry, and look after the whole family. When he fails to reach that set standard, society perceives that he is not man enough. As a result, men tend to keep quiet even when they are thoroughly beaten or burnt. I have a case of a man whose face was burnt by hot water but when asked what had happened to him, he claimed he fell while riding a bicycle.

If the current trends continue however, women may end up increasingly charged with domestic assault, and men more likely to be offered help and protection in the courts of law.

Men should stand up and report domestic violence cases before the situation worsens.

In my own view, a man is a man if he is able to report domestic violence. He will seize to be a man if he is killed in such instances.

    Hey, you used to write wonderful, but the last several posts have been kinda boringˇK I miss your tremendous writings. Past few posts are just a little out of track! come on!

  2. Most people think it is OK for women to batter their intimate partners, as long as the violence is moderate to light. I have never met a man who has not been disciplined by his wife/girlriend using a punch to the shoulder, at the very least. Slaps and kicks are less ubiquitous, but still common and accepted ways in which women discipline “their men”. There is a television show right now where boysfriends are rigged with electrical devices so that their girlfriends can “shock” them whenever they say or do the wrong thing.

    The law is just a reflection of this social reality. Yes, violence by women against men is condoned and accepted. Not every woman DOES this, but every woman knows she CAN DO this.
