Dr Murray Straus RIP

Our thanks to John for pointing us to some sad news. Murray Straus was held in the highest regard by those keen for the truth about the non-gendered nature of domestic violence to be more widely known.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Sad news. Sadder still that his work was so broadly ignored by our governments.

    It must be said that, despite the efforts of Murray et al to approach the subject with a unbiased eye, domestic abuse has always been very much a “gendered” phenomenon, committed vastly more by women than men. The root cause might well be the sexist indoctrination of children in social and formal education, whereby little girls bully boys around 20 times more than the reverse and carry the impunity afforded them into adulthood, the men long cowed into accepting female violence. It would seem that Mary Koss’ widely-enforced Duluth Model simply mirrored the sexes in an attempt to mask the research of the 1970s showing the ugly truth – and that women hitting in self defence makes up less than 5% of instances. 95% female perpetration sounds about right to me, reciprocated or not.
