Newsday On Battered Men

This article from Newsday attempts to dispel myths about battered men. I almost sense a tone of restraint from the article's message, but perhaps it will be more effective in that people might be more willing to accept the message. Any recognition of DV against men is worthwhile. Here's a good quote: "In many ways, it is much
more difficult for the male victim of domestic violence because of the special stigma that
attaches to being a battered man...Abused men also find it difficult to get
out of violent relationships because they fear losing custody or even visitation with
their children...they must often deal with ridicule as well as lack of understanding.
