    Interesting source. I'm not sure why the author feels the need to tie an acknowledgement of female domestic abusers to a larger critique of feminism. Without the feminist movement, there wouldn't have been any spotlight cast on the issue of abuse, male or female, in the first place.

    yes, that does happen. also, there is domestic abuse between gay men that doesn't get reported as it should. shame and embaressment? in botson, there is a clinic the fenway community health center. have support groups for the lgbt community. one of the groups is for gay men that have been abused in a relationship. fenway is an amazing health center. started in the early 80"s by the first openly gay city council members.

    Tip of the iceberg. In our heavily Republican Johnson County they decided to cut down on the number of restaurant health inspectors!

    I remember when FCHC was a drop-in VD clinic on Edgerly Rd, in the basement of an apartment building accessed through an alley :cool:

    OT: I've survived some pretty extreme domestic violence which took place in 2004. At the time, the Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO) treated it like a joke. At one point, I told an officer that if I were a woman he'd already be in handcuffs: he snorted, pointed and said that "obviously, you're not a woman". That was the moment I lost all faith in the SoFla police force.

    Happily, FWIW, they are now treating same-sex domestic violence with the same caution and severity as opposite-sex DV: 'bout fucking time. I still wouldn't trust the BSO to walk my dog without fucking it up.

    Lastly: instead of going soft on DV, where there's an obvious victim, why not relent a bit on the "drug war"? That'd save millions!

    Florida's sheriff's departments are not only incompetent they are really corrupt as well. But in my experience, the two go hand in hand.

    Because there is too much money being made from the drug war Bbucko.

    i went to fenway when it was in the basement of that apt. building on edgerly rd. i lived on hemenway st. and the clinic was steps away. fenway is awesome.

    and, i think allot of people still don't believe there can be domestic violence between 2 men.
