    Dr. Staik,

    I just wanted to congratulate you and say what a great job you did with this article.

    The developing ‘moral equivalency’ attitude placing men and women as equals in domestic violence is alarming and dangerous. The worst part is this moral equivalency appears to generated by the very men engaging in domestic violence and shifting the blame to their spouses reaction to their abuse as abusive.

    While we all recognize women can and do abuse, I cast a wary eye to any man requiring or demanding men and women deserve equal status in Domestic Violence discussions. Men who remind or inform or simply discuss their experiences without attempting to create a false equivalency are the ones I find trustworthy.

    I would love to know the source of the statistics quoted as those stated don’t match ABS figures and my own experience

      Expecting a male to do his share of housework, expecting him not to turn after other women while his partner does not look after other guys is not abuse, you know.
      If you just take a look around you, you won’t need statistics.
      How many women beat their husband? There is not even a word for it. Like, wife beater. Oops, that’s two words…
