Truth and Prejudice: Men's Experiences of Domestic Violence Domestic violence is a serious social problem that is heart-breaking to each and every victim who experiences the abuse. However, it has hitherto been depicted in a misleading manner, by portraying men as always the perpetrators and women always the victims. This book is packed with factual evidence that shows that men are also victims of domestic violence perpetrated by their wives or female partners, and in high numbers. It thus dispels this old misleading stereotype and establishes that domestic violence is not a gender issue as heretofore portrayed, but a social issue and one capable of being perpetrated by either partner in an intimate relationship. TRUTH AND PREJUDICE: Men's Experiences of Domestic Violence is based on a review of research findings from around the world covering Australia, Canada, China, South Africa, Uganda, United Kingdom and United States - confirming the reality of domestic violence against men by their wives or female partners. The book unveils the truth head-on, and lays bare the prejudice that male victims are subjected to by those responsible for responding to domestic violence victims. Divided into four chapters - each examining a key issue of men's experiences - the subjects under discussion are: the prevalence and extent of this abuse against men; detrimental impact of this on them the disparity in support/service provision and biased response to male victims - concluding with an overview of the main arguments and recommendations for a way forward. The book is comprehensive in its examination of these issues and jargon-free, thus capable of appealing to all those (men or women) interested in the unbiased portrayal of domestic violence in our societies.

A Woman Denied...The Early Years A Woman Denied... The Early Years is a biography of one beautiful woman named Raymond. Raymond was born in Pretoria. She spent a few years of her childhood in Soweto, Johannesburg. Her father, a stubborn traditionalist, had always wanted a boy. With two little girls in the house, he had reason to yearn for a little boy. When Raymond came, all wishes and hopes, and the pride and joy were shattered as the baby came with mixed gender. Neither could the baby be a boy or a girl... but subsequent domination from an abusive and drunkard father saw that the baby would lead life as a boy. Needles to say, it put paid to Raymond's mother, Evelyn's desire to raise a happy and healthy baby... as simply a baby she loved.

The account of the times and life of this wonderful and humble child is a tear-jerking story. Get in her shoes and walk through her trials and tribulations as she grows through life in the 70s and 80s. Experience the hurt and the abuses she had gone through; cry with her as all undeniable signs of womanhood surface.... And at the same time think that there are hundreds, possibly thousands, of people like Raymond who the world keeps denying their true identities and existence. For Raymond, it was not a matter of choosing a specific gender - it was a fight to live life to the next day as she was denied to be a woman.

I had known Raymond personally for over twenty-five years. As an investigative writer, I was always troubled by the way the world treated her. I was always at pains to justify my ignorance at doing nothing to change the life of this beautiful human being. Unable to keep quiet anymore, I began to investigate. Through most of the guilt and anguish that rocked Raymond's emotions, I was there, watching. Even when the inevitable moment came for her to publicly go out as a woman, I was there, too. The result is the heart-felt account of her life, as told by her over several years... This account of Raymond's life cover a period up to 1990, when she enters formal employment.

In keeping with the spirit and celebration of women, take an opportunity to buy this book and read this fascinating yet sad and touching story of this denied woman. And whatever you do, wherever you are, promise not to ever treat another human being the way you would never wish to be treated. Treat everybody with respect, whether you approve of their lifestyle or not. Being so close to my subject has taught me the true meaning of the saying: the body is the temple of the Lord It taught me also that all people are special and beautiful in their own ways.... We could all make a difference by laughing and loving more and hating little.

The Abuse of Men: Trauma Begets Trauma When men are abused, everybody suffers.

This courageous book exposes a dark secret: Men are often victims of abuse. Although a great deal of attention has recently been paid to the victimization of women, the role of men as victims--not just perpetrators--has been neglected. The Abuse of Men reveals the impact of physical, sexual, and emotional trauma on the lives and relationships of men.

This groundbreaking book shows how the negative effects of both basic training and combat may also cause lasting damage to men's self-esteem, ability to trust, personal boundaries, and ability to form healthy relationships. The Abuse of Men explores the prevalence of other kinds of violence and abuse toward men and boys, from child-battering to spousal abuse. It also discusses how the culture of violence and societal expectations of boys and men can help drive victims of abuse toward continuing the cycle of violence.

The Abuse of Men discusses the sources of trauma, including: the quality and quantity of domestic violence committed by women against men the role of abusive fathers in raising sons who become abusers vicarious traumatization from living with partners whose uncontrolled PTSD makes them dangerously abusive hazing, military training, and other socially sanctioned male-on-male violence trauma contagion and transactional victimizingThe Abuse of Men also offers specific suggestions for therapists working with abused men and their partners, including an innovative step-by-step program for treating couples who have both been traumatized. By understanding how men and boys become victims and respond to trauma, you can help heal their pain and teach them to build positive, loving relationships.
