When a woman is violent and abusive in a relationship, it is not necessarily assumed that she is a bad mother. If a man is violent towards his partner, it is automatically assumed that he is an unfit parent. The law presumes that the children are almost always better off with their mother. Consequently the only options for men seem to be to put up with the abuse or to leave the home, since under the law there is no real protection for them. If a male victim seeks help, society should offer the same protection and help to him and his children as is given to female victims. Women should be judged by the same standards as men, and women who are violent should be held legally responsible for their actions. Another issue that prevents men from reporting abuse is a lack of resources, which may be real or imagined. Many domestic violence services are aimed mostly at helping a female population. While the broader term "domestic violence shelter" is becoming more common, many shelters are still known colloquially as "battered women shelters." Legally, many of these community resources are supposed to help male victims as well as female, but there may be resistance for them to do so. Even if these support services do cater to men, abused men may feel as though they are not welcome there because of the primarily female population. Violence is not a gender issue â?? it is a human issue. Wives attack husbands about as often as husbands attack wives. And wives attack first about as often as husbands attack first, which is strong evidence that women's assaults on men can't be explained away simply as self-defense.1 But battered women's advocates were intent on portraying domestic violence as something only men do and only women suffer from. So they'd conveniently leave out the part about women's assaults on men check out my site stop male abuse @myspace

Thank goodness there is someone who is trying to bring awareness to the issues of males and sexual abuse. It is long past due and everyone must face the problem. Society pays a much greater price in the end.

The site is really coming together...WOW, the videos are so powerful; it really reaches deep down into my soul and memories. The hurt, the fears, the confusions...wondering if I was meant to be. I can only imagine the pain of those men and boys whe suffered much worse abuse than did I. I attempted suicide twice at the age of 14; became a cutter...and the impact of the pain has affected me for over 40 years. Trouble with jobs, society, feeling so horrible about myself for so many years. I sincerely believe that all of this was to bring me to a point of understanding of others; that's why I'm so passionate about trying to help others. This site is IT! It tells the stories, it expresses the feelings men normally cannot experess. What a poweful way to tell the stories that most don't know about how men can suffer terribly too. I do get emotional, but I've learned to deal with it and move forward with the strength of God in my life, and knowing the needs of millions; hoping I can make a difference. After getting involved in advocay for the abused, I realized it would be beneficial to others for me to share my personal stories; knowing that my family members and friends are most likely to see it. This is one of the many reasons I held all of it in for so many years, to keep those close to me from knowing. But now that I've published my stories on various sites, I feel such a relief. What can I say?? This is IT! God bless you all.

I've through the site and I feel the stories/videos of celebrity survivors is very powerful. I believe every aspect of this site can be beneficial to male survivors and their loved ones. Through the Male Abuse Awareness programs already established by the PLF I began to put together the affects of childhood abuse in my adult life. Furthermore I have been inspired to help other male victims/survivors of abuse, as well as to begin sharing my stories of abuse and being bullied with others to hopefully let them know that it is OK to speak out. Awareness in this cause is imperative to start the process of ending the cycle of abuse. I have come terms with my past abuses, and now have a much better understand as to why I am here today signing this guest book.
