VIOLENCE TO MAN?


Today at lunch break i prefered drinking coffee instead of eating something. I picked up a newspaper from store and among many title, one small title took attention of me. It was like " Men's shelters ". Men?

Generally i'm used to read about women who need these kind of shelters. Then when i read the content, i realised that it's something in The Netherlands. It's said The Netherlands Government decided to build shelters for men who are under violance and attack. I smiled and thought "Is there any man who is really under violance on this earth?" As everybody knows, if there's someone they're always women who is subject to...

I grumbled myself " God, what's going on on this earth?". Are the balances changing?

In the speech of Ministery of Health in Netherlands also says that with these houses which will be built in Amsterdam, Rotterdam,Utrecht and Lahey this week will cut out this big problem. I'm asking if it's the biggest at least a big problem in The Netherlands? I mean, is the men majority in The Netherlands under violence by their woman partners?

Then something came to my mind. As far as i remember, men's marriage is legal in The Netherlands. Maybe these shelters are for these men who are married eh?

I always defened the equality between woman and man but the physical one!

Whatever the reason , from man to woman or woman to man violence is ridiculous. Because noone has the right to proceed violonce to the other. Is it a kind of display of power? And for what? And what about the regret and sorrow comes after violence?

Sadly, men are often to blame for the trouble in this world.

It seems strange when a female domineers and even beats up a man, but sadly, it does happen.

Thankfully, I'm only "brow-beaten",

@ Vince: Yes it's really sad. But the thing made me surprise is normally i come across these kind of violence cases for woman in Turkey, but The Netherlands is one of the very civilized countries and it's very surprising to learn about men under Violoence and shelters are being built for them.

You'll never be " brow-beaten" man Vince! Believe me:)

@ Hans: Well my comment will be almost same which i made for Vince above. I don't try to intimate any intention. All i say is i think women in The Netherlands are quite strong to strike regarding men's power. I can't imagine a man who can't outstand that assault.(This is what i say in General of course)

Burcu - I think the reason why some men get beaten up by women is because they will not hit back. If a man defends himself, he would probably win and the woman would be very hurt. Some men prefer not to do it. The shelter are needed so that men can get out of a bad situation without being violent.

I agree with you that violence is definitely not the answer. I can't believe they will build SO MANY shelters for men. Gee...indeed it makes me think, too, about humans and what is going on in humans' minds hmmm...
