Battered Men: The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence
By Nancy Schimelpfening
Before reading this article, I was under the impression that only battered women existed, but after reading this article, I see that battered men exist as well. Though domestic violence against men is not as known as domestic violence against women; domestic violence against men does occur more often than we know.
Domestic abuse of men can occur in many forms, including being abused physically, being slapped, being kicked, being hit, being forced to have sex, etc. Abuse can have an impact on the mental well-being of men. Because of the seriousness of abuse, men should not stay in an abusive situation, and neither should they be expected to.
