“Abused by my Girlfriend” BBC Documentary

A must watch for everyone…for those who know that men are victims of domestic violence from their partners, this true story will provide further understanding of the devious, terrifyingly violent methods used by his girlfriend to totally control and intimidate her partner and for those who deny the existence of male victims of domestic violence, watch and learn.

The young police officer, contrary to his training and usual expectations  that only women are victims and men the perpetrators is to be commended for persisting in his inquiries when neighbours called again to report the violence from next door.

A doctor who examined the young man said he was only about 10 days away from death, so intense and serious had been the deprivation and violence he experienced.

His partner was sentenced to 7 years on each counts and a further sentence was imposed for “Coercive and controlling behaviour” – the first time a woman has been charge with this offence in the UK.

Senator David Leyonhjelm fearless in his questioning of bureacrats

Posted online two weeks ago – Senator David Leyonhjelm fearless again in Estimates Hearing with his forthright questioning of bureaucrats from the Office Of the PM on spending taxpayer funds to gain White Ribbon workplace accreditation.

They squirm all over the place trying to avoid his questioning, especially when it comes to asking why they do not also support any organisations that support male victims of family violence.

One woman right at the end claims there are government organisations that do support male victims. Leyonhjelm retaliates that he does not know of any. A shame he did not force the issue for them to name any such organisations.

And here Leyonhjelm queries the Office For Women on whether they would support an Office For Men.

In this clip he has bureaucrats from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency squirming and struggling trying to explain how they calculated the gender pay gap.
