Life Needs A Shelter

“Women initiate violence in 24 percent of cases in which the husbands don’t fight back, while men initiate violence in 27 percent of cases in which women don’t fight back. In the other 49 percent of cases, both partners actively participate in the violence.”

-- Kathleen Parker, quoting the findings of Linda Mills, senior vice provost at New York University (and author of Violent Partners) for the National Review

That 3% difference is all feminists needed to lose their fucking minds and make laws and procedures that treat men like criminals for simply being men. Miss Parker continues:

Many states have a “must-arrest” policy if a call to police is made. Many also take a “primary aggressor” approach in determining who should be arrested. Even if the man calls the police, says Mills, he’s often the one hauled off and charged, based on the assumption that he, the physically stronger, is more dangerous."

That's putting it lightly. If the average American knew how domestic violence attitudes played out, and were applied, it would boggle their minds.
