oh good grief I've now read the rest of the original exchange and cannot believe the ignorance displayed by some.  Rolling Eyes
Didn't notice a reply to bbh's request for the source of the stats about the proportion of domestic violence committed by women.  Of course it can go the other way but all the studies I've seen suggest that it's a small proportion (I won't put a figure on it because I don't have stats to hand) and tends to be more one off than systemic which is typical of male violence.  And the official definition of domestic violence includes psychological and economic violence where women (and it is women) are  denied all autonomy.  This is relevant to the suggestion of a continuum.

Thanks for the sources Connor.  Hadn't seen those stats I must admit.  I've never heard of the organisations publishing them but the stats source for the Guardian piece is of course reputable so I stand corrected.  However, my understanding is certainly that the typical experience of female to male domestic violence is very different to male-female, the other point I made.  And also women are much more vulnerable to sexual violence in both public and private spheres.  The more general point in response to those who ask questions such as 'what about a men's day?' is that men still hold much more political and economic power than women, even if things are changing slowly.

And I'd enjoy giving your butt a good kicking for all your idiotic posts on this thread, which I've just caught up with.  Clearly the spectre of a certain someone is rearing it's ugly head again, and I thought you'd outgrown that.  However if you choose to be influenced by people like Elly then that's your misfortune when there are so many other sensible posters on MW.
I'm reading back.  I do not actually know who you think you are, Aileen?  Some of us have a sense of humour.  "People like Elly" ?  You know nothing about me, other than what you read and choose to take from my posts.  It's ridiculous - it really is.  I'd really like to meet you face to face.  I don't think it'd be me who'd be looking at the floor!
