As an organization dedicated to advocating for men’s rights, we understand the importance of shedding light on issues that often go unnoticed or overlooked. Today, we want to address a topic that affects countless men in relationships: coercive control.

Coercive control is a sinister pattern of manipulative behaviors aimed at dominating and controlling a partner. While it’s often associated with female victims, it’s crucial to recognize that men can also be victims of this form of abuse. At Men’s Rights Agency, we stand in solidarity with all victims, regardless of gender.

Here are 12 signs of coercive control from a male victim’s perspective:

  1. Isolation: Your partner cuts you off from friends and family, leaving you feeling alone and without support.
  2. Constant Monitoring: They track your every move, invading your privacy and making you feel like you’re always being watched.
  3. Denial of Freedom: They restrict your autonomy, dictating where you can go, what you can do, and who you can see.
  4. Gaslighting: They manipulate your perception of reality, making you doubt your own experiences and sanity.
  5. Verbal Abuse: Name-calling, criticism, and put-downs are used to belittle and control you.
  6. Financial Control: They limit your access to money, making it difficult for you to leave the relationship.
  7. Domestic Duties: You’re coerced into taking on all household responsibilities without any help or support.
  8. Parental Alienation: They try to turn your children against you, using them as pawns in their control tactics.
  9. Health Control: They monitor and control aspects of your health and body, including what you eat, when you sleep, and where you seek medical help.
  10. Jealousy and Isolation: They make jealous accusations and try to isolate you from friends and family.
  11. Sexual Regulation: They dictate your sexual relationship, making demands and controlling your intimacy.
  12. Threats: They use threats against you, your loved ones, and even your pets to intimidate and control you.

If any of these signs resonate with you, please know that you’re not alone. Coercive control is a form of abuse, and there are resources and support available to help you break free from it.
