I assume this comes off as less threatening, but I believe that this doesn't necessarily include the lawfully placed double standards such as percentage of custody cases and domestic violence.
But it offers a place where we can talk about that without making wide sweeping generalization about genders and how they are the same.
*sigh* I don't think my thread was bad, but I am renowned as having a hard time comprehending what a sentence means when all the words are understandable. Besides, women dun me wrong. And I feel that sometimes things are taken out on all men in the name of all women, even though most problems are pretty evenly scaled, such as women wanting a more flexible job while men take that second or third shift, as well as the multiple studies that women more frequently abuse their men, even though the few times the man is the single perpetrator he has the ability to cause more damage, and I'm not even counting those bad relationships when they BOTH go to blows. I just can wrap my head around the idea that women aren't capable of being as or more violent than a man. I mean, women are more likely to use objects and throw things. Men just have a rage-haze and go nutty.
In our culture, women tend to use relational aggression more. It's why it's often called "girl bullying" and something that goes unnoticed by most. It's arguably worse than being punched in the face, to be honest.
Girls and women tend to do this because society still sort of discourages them from being angry. Women aren't supposed to show their anger and yell, they're supposed to be kind and caring and sweet or they get called bitches. So many women are never taught how to be assertive and resort to under-the-radar emotional abuse and psychological abuse tactics.
Well, and physical abuse, but I guess since people assume it's not as bad, it's not really mentioned... which sucks for the dudes taking a beating.
Actually research has found that women tend to use relational abuse more than physical abuse. In our culture, anyway.
People tend to think that physical abuse is worse than relational abuse, because men do it so it must be worse. But actually, studies show that relational abuse actually has longer-lasting deeper emotional scars.
