Yes, happy birthday to Jennifer!
Hey, it's the celebrity fan-girl again. :roll:
And there are studies that counter that study as well.
I didn't offer any studies. I offered statistics gathered by the US Department of Justice which details the majority of domestic assault victims being women.
You and your partner in crime claim to have studies which prove the opposite, that men are the one's abused by women. You haven't provided any link to a study or proof which would change my mind, or even for the casual viewer.
But I can understand your viewpoint in one regard. Men aren't what they used to be. I blame that on poor parenting and absent fathers. Men are largely inferior human beings.
Partner in crime?
Men do get abused as well. But I never said that men are abused more than women.
Wow, what a highly sexist comment. Feminist eh?
the numbers i saw in my "former life" (1st responder about 13 years ago) estimated that men were the victim in approximately 10% of domestic violence cases but admitted that percentage might actually be a bit higher due to many such incidents going unreported.
on a side note, gender roles are very wonky. i'm a stay at home dad and people who pride themselves on being "progressive, forward thinkers" either shoot me a look that says "you couldn't get a job, huh?" or they assume that my lack of a second x chromosome renders me incompetent in all matters concerning my child. they'd probably really freak if they found out that i stay at home with him because (in addition to being infant/ child cpr/ first responder trained) i'm by far the more patient parent.
anyway, on topic now, this seems to me to be an instance of a person who grew up without learning there were consequences to her actions or at a more basic level never learned how to relate to people in a non-violence/non-threatening manner. maybe she needs anger management help. there's obviously a problem here somewhere. however, not every young tennis "phenom" ends up pulling a knife on they significant other so to say that jenjen is merely a product of the system she was in seems to be a bit farfetched.
Most domestic violence is due to Personality Disorders, such as Borderline Personality Disorder (often women) or Narcissistic Personality Disorder (often men).
