SAVE: Demand That VP Biden Tell the Truth about Domestic Violence
Vice President Joe Biden has disappointed abuse victims once again. On Tuesday, Biden issued a statement on domestic violence: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2012/07/31/158921/an-issue-beyond-debate-congress.html. With yet another opportunity to tell the truth about DV, he again only addressed one aspect: women abused by men.
Biden failed to mention intimate partner violence in the LGBT community, and he ignored women's violence towards men. According to Martin Fiebert, PhD of California State University, 286 research studies conducted over the last 30 years show "women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners." http://www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm
Scanning the news, it's easy to see that women commit DV. On Monday, Terry Dear, OH, was shot in the back by his wife in front of their two small children. Derrick Graham, VA, was hit and drug along a highway by his wife driving an SUV last week.
You may remember when Whoopi Goldberg asked Biden about violent women on The View (thanks to your calls and emails!). He threw his hands up as if dumbfounded, pounded his fist into his hand while ordering men to never hit women, then claimed that every person in prison saw their mother abused by their father.

The time has come for our Vice President to stand up for ALL victims of domestic violence. And, it's time for him to acknowledge that women can be, and often are just as violent as men.
Contact Lynn Rosenthal, the White House Advisor on Violence Against Women, and tell her that we demand that VP Biden tell the truth...the entire truth. You can write to Rosenthal at lrosenthal-at-who.eop.gov.
Telling the truth is something we were all taught as children. Let's remind Biden. And maybe we'll save a life while we're at it.
