The article was excellent at providing certain statistics about where Domestic Violence occurs and even relates those statistics involving Aboriginal Domestic Violence. It also hints at alcohol being a prominent factor in such offences. It demonstrates that Domestic Violence is not related to wealth. It does however make the dubious point (since words create images that may be false)* that Domestic Violence is a personal choice.
I have published numerous articles on the issue over the last six months, with the latest being published on October 3rd. That article was titled: Guilt, Deceit and Hypocrisy behind Domestic Violence Campaigns in which I stated that "..choosing not to point the finger is quite a different matter than expressly trying to silence the dissemination of information about such abuse."
The Women's Weekly article (no author attribution) however failed to address a number of issues that I have raised over the last six months.
Those last two points, Nos 6 and 7 are intimately connected. The feminist mantra appears to be that males CHOOSE to be violent and undoubtedly to some (presently unknown) extent, it is absolutely true. But I would like to draw your attention to a known fact about males in Australia that for some reason is never seen to be connected to Domestic Violence - the Male Youth Suicide Rate.
The suicide rate for young males in Australia is four times that for females. Why is this so? And why is this significant?
Unless one wants to assert that all troubled young males commit suicide, then we must conclude that many of our troubled youth do not succumb to suicide but continue on with their lives. How many I wonder do so while still deeply emotionally disturbed? And I further wonder how many of them have been subjected to mental cruelty and emotional abuse - the weapons of choice used by female abusers.
In my October 3rd article I made a point of offering a perspective on one of the claims of the feminist movement.
I furthermore stated:
That many young males suffer from emotional problems that lead them to suicide is obvious, and it is also obvious that in every article supporting the Women's Movement, women (and gays) are given a free pass. The free pass takes two forms. Firstly no statistics are provided about female violence and secondly, the bottom line is always the same - Men are violent and deliberately choose violence as a path to power.
What the Women's Movement does not do, is tackle the issue of 'Violence' in our society. They are not interested in violence in society, and in fact as my Oct 3rd article points out, they are not even interested in violence against women. What they are actually interested in is their own sociopathic agenda. There are several possible agendas running from hatred toward all males (See the Bettina Arndt Reference HERE) to earning a living from their self-perpetuating movement.
I applaud legitimate research into and action resulting in an effective strategy to combat violence in our communities. What I do not support is the hypocritical way in which the feminist agenda manipulates the issue. Our societies are becoming very anti-male sexist (reverse sexism - which PC defenders maintain is not real). Why is it OK to share email jokes with males about women beating and killing their husbands, when for a male to send the same joke with the gender roles reverse, it becomes a PC offense?
The feminist agenda - although it never implicitly says so - is designed to disparage all men, and I suspect they do so for the sake of power. Reaction Formation (to put it too simply) is an illness in which people go on the offensive accusing people (rightly or wrongly) of certain offenses when in fact it is they who within their hearts and minds harbor the desire to commit such offenses.
The Australian Prime Minister recently commented about a 15 year old Muslim terrorist in Australia and said "...we must not vilify or blame the entire Muslim community with the actions of what is, in truth, a very, very small percentage of violent extremist individuals."
The same holds true when it comes to Men and Domestic Violence.
I close this article by repeating what I wrote in my Oct 3rd article:
Oct 6th Addendum:*
At the beginning of 2015 while researching domestic violence in the USA I noted that whilst researchers recorded the fact that there were thousands more victims per annum than the decade previous, when they converted those figures into a 'per capita' ratio, the actual percentages year-on-year of domestic violence incidences showed a significant decrease, thus demonstrating that all the educational campaigns were working. The Domestic Violence movement in Australia has not done that. They merely keep saying that it is increasing, and then show actual numbers of incidents rather than their relationship to the growing population.
