Men Against Women

Fact

The National Institute of Justice and the Center for Disease Control estimates that 1.5 million women and 835,000 men are the victims of domestic violence each year.

HOW MEN COPE

Taking on a macho“I can handle it” attitude. Even if you have been hurt much worse on anathletic playing field, that is not the same thing as being physically attacked by your intimate partner, which hurts emotionally as well as physically.  Allowing this pattern to continue can result in depression, substance abuse,loss of confidence, even suicide. (At its worst, It has resulted in death at the hands of a partner or someone induced to kill by the partner.)

“Men Don’t Tell.” This is the actual title of a fact-based CBS TV movie about male victims of domestic abuse. Keeping silent, (not confiding to a friend, relative or professional) is a common reaction of both male and female victims of domestic abuse; it’s embarrassing. Men typically face a greater degree of disbelief and ridicule than do most women in this situation,which helps enforce the silence. Domestic violence victims make excuses for injuries that show (“It was an accident” or “it happened while playing sports”) when friends or medical personnel ask about them.

Hiding From it. Men often escape a bad home life that they are afraid of by spending extra time at work, staying in “their” space (garage, den) at home, or even sleeping in the car or at a friends place.
