    I live in Canada and just saw the numbers for 2011 for this country. Out of 89 intimate partner homicides in 2011, for 76 the victims were women, for 13 the victims were men. Link here.

      Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....

      if you expand that to cover all domestic relations? Not just intimate ones. Does violence by an estranged ex count? I would think they would include that but just wondering.

      You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.

      •  Eric, you make some interesting points. (0+ / 0-)

        Your memory of some statistics your read once doesn't hold up to the links others have posted.

        And doesn't hold up to my memory or the memory of anyone who pays attention to D.V. statistics.

        I agree with your angles on celebrity and the reality that women also abuse men (and same sex spouses abuse one another!)

        Because of the statistics this is a men vs. women issue. It sucks if you're a man who was a victim, but that doesn't change the numbers.

        Love the username and sig, BTW.

        "Jersey_Boy" was taken.
