Will feminists ever acknowledge the statistics showing that women are more likely to initiate domestic violence than men?

Women More Likely to Commit Domestic Violence, Studies Show. - http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/crime/item/19...

    Another odd thing is that DV is the only area of assault where the initial assailant is often NOT arrested, nor charged with a crime. Solely because of the gender of that assailant.

    I know this is true in my marriage .I was raised by wild animals and needed anger management classes.

    The other side of this is that men are more likely to kill their partners than women are.

    I would prefer a smack over being pushed into a wood chipper.

    Because feminists are primarily just concerned with the well being of females. Why should they care if men are attacked and abused by women?

    Probably not to be honest.

    But then again, I don't even think feminists were behind VAWA.

    Rather it was men and women in general, because they were traumatized over their mothers being abused to near death.

    Most people think that men are the perpetuators automatically, because they're stronger and seen as less vulnerable.

    So, that trauma affects many people, and it could have led to so-called organizations and advertisments being made.

    But it does shock people to know that women commit more of of the domestic violence.

    For the most part, it seems that feminists would rather dismiss or downplay women's involvement in the cycle of violence.

    Maybe because more women die at the hands of their partners, than men do. A simple slap isn't equal to being knocked unconcious.

    Feminists hate Facts. So: NO.

    Consider it acknowleged. Now, would you like to acknowledge that men do most of serial battering, cause most of the injuries, are the cause of most DV-related hospitalisations, and are the perpetrators of most intimate partner killings?

    Actually mothers are more likely to abuse their child and even kill (abortion). Feminists have an image they have to keep intact. So no.
