it gets nowhere near the publicity as battered wives, but i think we all know it happens. society expects men to be the strong ones, so many men are loathe to admit they are the victims. the ''real men don't hit women'' rule is a hard line to cross, so many men are rendered self defenceless. do you picture the comical image of the cartoon wife, frying pan or rolling pin at the ready? have you been the victim of female on male domestic abuse? have you been the perpetrator? have you witnessed this happening? what are your thoughts?
