Here's a phrase from feminism: Rigid gender roles hurt everyone. This notion of "Oh, women can't REALLY hurt men" comes from gender existentialism. It's the same societal misconception that keeps male rape victims from being taken seriously.


Pretty much. It's also the same social stereotyping that says "There isn't abuse in lesbian relationships because women can't/don't/wouldn't abuse women" and "There isn't abuse in gay relationships because men really like the abuse or they wouldn't put up with it."

Abuse is abuse. It shouldn't be funny.

nulluspixiusdemonica: Who cares? Seriously. What sort of raging psychotic gets their underwear all twisted out of shape over something so puerile?


The kind of person who get's upset over something like this is the kind of person who has been a victim of domestic abuse. When you make light of female on male domestic abuse it encourages it in society and enforces stereotypes that continue trends like under-reporting of female to male domestic abuse. It's like asking why people would get their underwear twisted up about burning crosses.

Slaxl: I don't see the problem. It's a game, it's not real, and it certainly isn't encouraging violence against men. Yes, if it was the other way around lots of people would be even more outraged because violence against women is a big problem


Violence against men is a big problem and it remains vastly under-reported. In this case the game explicitly encourages abuse against the man in the relationship. You know damn well Apple never would have approved this app if the roles were reversed.

I sound fat: If you arent man enough to protect yourself from your woman, perhaps you NEED to have an aggressive, strong woman as your mate.


My ex-wife liked to get physically abusive as she had a bad temper. I used to be a professional bouncer and could have easily "won", but I never once attempted to defend myself. Do you know what happens in the real world when the man defends himself against his wife attacking him? He goes to jail, she gets an OFP, the kids, the house and you lose a lot of your rights for the rest of your life. Protecting yourself inside your own home is nothing at all like protecting yourself when walking down the street.

I was afraid to walk away after hearing horror story upon horror story about how sexist the family court is and how hard it is for a man to get custody of kids in the real world. The result is that a /lot/ of men stay in abusive relationships because they are afraid of losing their kids to the divorce courts. By staying with her as long as I did I protected the kids from her wraith by and took most of her of her abuse instead of them taking it. As far as I am concerned my manhood is very much still intact.

There are plenty of men being abused by women as well as both genders being abused in same sex relationships. You don't hear about the men because they seldom come forward. Law enforcement usually doesn't take them seriously and their peers ridicule them and question their masculinity. It's silly to get your panties wadded over an app, but we as a society need to address all abuse and take measures to end the double standard.

And yet pretty much the same can be said of women, for the most part. Hell, women at least have specialized shelters set up to protect them IN JUST THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. Sleeping behind a dumpster isn't even as much of a worry for them, because it's less likely!

WhippingBoy: What you people fail to see is that abuse is an institutional thing. You can't be an "abuser" if you're in the oppressed minority (e.g. a women). It goes the other way. The majority oppressors (men) are the ones who are abusive to the oppressed minority, not the other way around.


Not sure if serious, but either way, this post explains exactly why "group guilt" and "shared responsibility" folks don't get taken seriously. People need to be held responsible for their own actions, and no one else's. To do otherwise is scapegoating: a fundamentally unjust act.

meh...

My ex was very abusive and I stayed for the kids that she tricked me into having, to have me stay.  (long story that I've already wrote down in previous threads).

Anything that you guys can think of, she probably did it, and when I left, she tried every trick to cause me trouble.

Even with witnesses to her punching me in the face, the cop told me that if I pressed charges, she'd get a warning BUT if she claimed that I hit her (even in defense, and regardless of how many witnesses), the law was that they'd have to arrest me.

She kept pulling crap until the cops, the lawyers, the judges, the children services got tired of the crap, and I ended with full custody and she hasn't seen the kids in about 10 years (or more...)

This is a quick version as I have so many stories that I could tell, which most I've done in previous threads...

The one thing that's a fact, a man has no resources, no assistance, is always the bad guy (until proven innocent)...

Can girls/women get away with it... hell yes... even if my ex ended up diagnosed as paranoid-schizophrenic, a man that would have done even less than 1/2 the stuff she did would have been in jail for a few years.

By staying with her as long as I did I protected the kids from her wraith by and took most of her of her abuse instead of them taking it. As far as I am concerned my manhood is very much still intact.

There was a guy who worked for me for a short time who was in an abusive relationship.  I asked him to work late one night on a drop-in project for a customer and he allowed as how he would be beaten when he got home if he did.  He wondered if he could come in a few hours early the next morning instead.  After talking to him for a bit, he admitted that he was in an abusive relationship, that she hit him frequently because of an out-of-control temper (I daresay she was bipolar).  I asked him why he stayed and he allowed as how he thought of himself as a lightening rod between her and their two daughters.  He had tried the marriage counseling and other avenues but she could put on a great show for others so nothing changed and he was pretty sure it wouldn't.

Then one morning he came in with a black eye.  I invited him into my office and asked him about it.  His wife had always been careful not to leave a mark. He broke down and told me that his oldest daughter, then about 14, had thrown a temper tantrum because he didn't want her to start dating.  She hit him and his wife only encouraged her and said he deserved it.  A week later he wrapped a company car around an overpass support at about 75 mph.  Clear, dry conditions and no skid marks.

Definitely not a cool story, bro.


Good god, that is one of the saddest things I've read in a while. I just imagine he made it through everyday by telling himself it was for his daughters, and then one of them starts turning into the mother. How utterly life-shattering that must have been.

A gay male friend of mine was raped. The police laughed at him and all of the rape and crisis lines were literally only set up to support women. He received absolutely no support of any kind whatsoever, even though there was no doubt that he had been raped.

In the state I live in there isn't a single domestic abuse shelter that allows men to stay. Their is a system wide state of denial that domestic abuse against men exists in this country.

Feminists don't condone relationship violence. I don't know what you'd call the people you talked to, but "avowed feminist" isn't it.

CSB time. I am at a university, and occasionally students are hired to work at a lab where heavy machinery is used. After complaining to one of the professors about the clear bias towards hiring males for the heavy machinery jobs and ignoring women's applications, I was told "They used to hire women, but they didn't work out. They tried, that's not good enough?" He found it perfectly acceptable that an entire class of people had been dismissed out of hand for what were either a few bad eggs or poor hiring decisions. Substitute "black", "Turkish", or any other minority and I'm sure he would find that appalling, but "women." Yeah, they just didn't work out. Nevermind that I'm actually certified to drive a forklift and I restore old cars for fun, I clearly don't deserve to be judged on my own merits.

Wash, rinse and repeat the above for your entire life and you get "avowed feminists" who think it's okay to abuse men.

My roommate was in an abusive relationship with this crazy chick. He finally had enough and kicked her out. She showed up with her equally f*cked up sister to move her stuff. My buddy just sat on the couch and tried to ignore them but they constantly tried to pick a fight with him every time they went by. He had enough so he gently placed her stuff right outside the door. She flipped out and called the cops. They show up and her and her sister are flipping out about how her stuff will get stolen and yadda yadda. He's kind of outnumbered and he loses it and blurts out that she hits him all the time (which is true, she did a lot) and the two girls start laughing about how he's a pussy and blah blah. The cop looks at her and says with a straight face, "Ma'am I don't find that funny at all and if he wants I'll arrest you right here". That shut them up.

Cops go to enough domestic disturbance calls to know that probably over half the time, it's the woman hitting the guy

Your memory has faded in two years.   What he really said:

"The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It's just easier this way for everyone. You don't argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn't eat candy for dinner. You don't punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don't argue when a women tells you she's only making 80 cents to your dollar. It's the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles."

FTFY.

They don't give overall numbers for all violent relationships, just the one where the battered partner doesn't hit back.  The fact that women initiate the most nonreciprocal violence ties in with comments in this thread about men knowing that if they retaliate or even try to defend themselves, they're going to jail even though they're the victim.

Except that a huge part of abusive relationships is brainwashing. It's the same reason women don't leave relationships where men abuse them; the abusive partner, not always intentionally, brainwashes them into believing they deserve it, or it's not that bad. And it definitely doesn't help that society's decided men just cannot POSSIBLY be victimized so they must be faking it.

Abuse victims often can't leave. Sometimes there's a financial or other reason, but sometimes it's just because they're psychologically trapped. It's the same for female-on-male abuse as it is for male-on-female. Trying to be 'tough love' on abuse victims is like trying to make two solid objects occupy the same space and time--it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what you're trying to accomplish.


There's this whole thing called gaslighting which, among other things, is used to mean basically brainwashing an abuse victim into believing she isn't really being abused.


This post chain is popcorn gold. Starts off with a man being the victim of "his woman" (lol, possessive undertones) and three posts later the generic victim being discussed has become female.

I'm going to try to say this without being condescending or insensitive.  It will be hard.

Tip:  If your woman is abusing you, LEAVE.  You don't have to fight back (lord god, dont do that, you will go to jail) or care if she loves you back or not.  You are a MAN, you most likely have the ability to get a minimum wage job and a studio apartment.   If not, sleeping behind the dumpster is a whole lot easier on men then women, and preferable to being afraid of your girl.   I dont get this at ALL.


Except that a huge part of abusive relationships is brainwashing. It's the same reason women don't leave relationships where men abuse them; the abusive partner, not always intentionally, brainwashes them into believing they deserve it, or it's not that bad. And it definitely doesn't help that society's decided men just cannot POSSIBLY be victimized so they must be faking it.

Abuse victims often can't leave. Sometimes there's a financial or other reason, but sometimes it's just because they're psychologically trapped. It's the same for female-on-male abuse as it is for male-on-female. Trying to be 'tough love' on abuse victims is like trying to make two solid objects occupy the same space and time--it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what you're trying to accomplish.

This app represents more double-standards from the feminist-dominated media/culture. It's amazing how humans are incapable of reacting to a perceived double standard by simply removing that double-standard. Tthey must always somehow swing the pendulum too far. Feminists had specific complaints, many of which were quite valid, all of which were thoroughly dealt with 20 years ago. Since then they've just decided to become a hate group to justify their existence.

Felgraf: MikeBoomshadow: My view of this app is that I have the right to strongly disapprove, and that's about it.

Everyone will feel strongly against some form of expression. Now if the app is specifically ADVOCATING criminal abuse, then I think we all have not only the right but the duty to request its removal.

But in this specific case, anyone who claims that the app influences their decision to abuse a boyfriend, they were gonna do it regardless of the app, and so are full of crap.

I think most people are saying "It is farked up that there is an app that makes light of such a thing. A similar app targeting women would never have been approved."


And they're right, of course. The idea itself is farked up. But while right or wrong, the double standard does exist, I don't see the game expressing actual approval of that standard.

I would like to find a way to do an entertaining, funny game that actually does argue against abuse. Or other things we as a people should reasonably find abhorrent.

Until then, we get shiat like this. But since it doesn't seem to specifically advocate committing abuse (I could be wrong; I haven't played it), I would argue that censoring it would be a cure worse than the illness.

After all, abuse will never go away if all we do is talk about it, but I we don't do that, it's only gonna get worse.

RobSeace: g4lt: It's only rational when there's no civilization to remove the abuser from the situation. That is the entire point of a law enforcement apparatus, to get the person doing the unethical harm out of the situation and let the victim get on with their life.

Yes, but that requires cooperation from the victim, in actually calling the cops, and then going through with pressing charges and testifying and all that... Many times, for whatever reason, they choose not to cooperate... In the case of guys hit by women, I think many of them don't want to admit to being abused for fear of being labeled weakling pussies... In the case of women hit by men, I think it's more often that they have a sort of Stockholm syndrome and blame themselves for the abuse rather than the abuser... But, in any case, if the victim won't cooperate with law enforcement, I'm not sure how you expect "civilization" to just swoop in and magically save the day (all while probably being cursed by the victim for their interference)...


The same way civilization steps into a case of homicide even though the victim won't cooperate.

Im not blaming the victim, im telling the "victim" to remove himself from the situation.  If you cant see that is the rational thing to do, there is ZERO hope for you, fair or not.


It's a matter of verb tense that some people just can't seem to grasp.

Blame:  "If you had  left after the first beating, it wouldn't have  happened again."

Help:  "Leave before it happens again."

Blame's focus is on the past.  Help's focus is on the present and future.

Egoy3k: the_vegetarian_cannibal: Uh, reality check: do you guys even PAY ATTENTION to pop culture around you? As has been mentioned already, GTA (amongst other video games) regularly glorifies killing hookers

Way to miss the point, you two. You did read the other part of my post where I state that I have played GTA before myself and where I made fun of Wayne LaPierre for his suggestions, right? I'm not defending that position, just using it as an example. Also, I guess "glorify" was the wrong word to use but you can't deny the fact that in GTA, the activity of mistreating prostitutes exists in the game and that it is played for entertainment value, not as a church moral lesson about how it is horrible and will send you straight to hell. That was the point. That there are mainstream games that nonchalantly depict females as objects to be abused but are still (mostly) tolerated by society.

Looks like I shouldn't have used video games as an example. That's the one sacred cow that Farkers will reflexively be over-defensive about even more than iPhone apps about male-bashing.


If you're trying to say the game makes all women to be skanky prostitutes, then it's also saying all men are violent thugs. And there's plenty of regular looking men and women you can kill and beat up just as easily.

I read your whole post but you are still wrong. Mistreating prostitutes does not 'exist' in the game any more than it does in real life. You can pay for their 'services' or not as you like. The game never actually gives any indications that this is even possible let alone encouraged and it's a pretty obscure part of the game as it is. Once the transaction is complete the hooker walks away. If you decide to kill her she drops some money just like any other random person on the street will drop some money when you kill them.

Killing hookers has never been a mechanic in GTA just like flying into the World Trade Center isn't a mechanic in a flight sim.

Actually, more relevant would be that Sony doesn't go out of their way to censor video games from their system in the same way that Apple does. It's like comparing what is 'acceptable content' in a NYTimes article to, say, FARK Comments. Apple makes a big deal about there being a 'morality gateway' to their App Store, which this passed, while GTA went under no such burden.

ciberido: Egoy3k: MsIndy: CSB time. I am at a university, and occasionally students are hired to work at a lab where heavy machinery is used. After complaining to one of the professors about the clear bias towards hiring males for the heavy machinery jobs and ignoring women's applications, I was told "They used to hire women, but they didn't work out. They tried, that's not good enough?" He found it perfectly acceptable that an entire class of people had been dismissed out of hand for what were either a few bad eggs or poor hiring decisions. Substitute "black", "Turkish", or any other minority and I'm sure he would find that appalling, but "women." Yeah, they just didn't work out. Nevermind that I'm actually certified to drive a forklift and I restore old cars for fun, I clearly don't deserve to be judged on my own merits.

It would be just fine if Black or Turkish people had a known history of being shiatty at operating heavy machinery and had caused a disproportionate number of accidents and or near misses. Since the are no real differences between races (race isn't even a real thing) and we happen to be a species with a fair degree of sexual dimorphism I would say that judging a person based on their sex is much more correct than judging someone based on their 'race'.

So you have some sort of study at hand which proves that women are worse than men at operating heavy machinery, do you?


I don't need one. I'm not asserting that they are. The professor in the story was either being dishonest or had a personal history of having issues with females and heavy machinery. Talk to him not me.

As his boss, I realized I was walking a fine line between counseling and meddling so I tried to do a lot more listening, once he opened up, than talking.  But when I asked him if he thought it was a good idea for his daughters to see the kind of parental interaction he and his wife were modeling, he kind of slumped and said that he didn't think it was any good but he didn't know what else to do.  When he came in with the black eye, he put on a good show in front of the rest of the company about stepping on a rake or something like that.  But, behind the closed door of my office, he completely broke down.  I knew, at that moment, that he had been, as you put it, shattered.  And it still haunts me that I never anticipated his suicide.  He had put on such a good tough guy show in front of others that I thought he could handle it.  Quite honestly, had I not asked him to work pretty late that one night, I doubt he would ever have opened up to me.  This happened 18 years ago and I am getting teary-eyed typing about it.  R.I.P.

Slaves2Darkness: g4lt: GoldSpider: g4lt: So telling someone to get out of a burning house is help, putting out the fire isn't? Got it.

So in the context of a friend helping a woman in an abusive relationship, "help" can only mean... murdering the abuser??

So the ONLY choices are "kill the biatch" or "do nothing"?  Dude, remember that whole "civilization" thing?  Surprisingly, it may have a third option, like "have the biatch arrested".  Interesting that you added a helper to the woman abuser here though.  This is typical in your experience, that when people see a person being abused, they pile on?

You ever tried to have a woman arrested in a domestic violence incident? They never get arrested unless they are dumb enough to commit battery right in front of the police, it is always the mans fault, always. Guy could have four bullets in him, be bleeding out, and the mouth breathing sub-100 IQ police would still say it is his fault.


I used to work in a zero-tolerance jurisdiction. The rule was this: If there is a report of domestic violence, somebody is leaving that house tonight. In handcuffs, into a hotel room, in an ambulance, in her sister's car, SOMETHING. Somebody's going to be not home. This was in response to some recent incidents where domestic violence calls got FIDOed and people died. And yes, all of those people had girl parts. In most cases (usually related to child care or the difficulty in packing all of one's necessary shiat), it was the guy who was removed from his own home. We made it abundantly clear that it had nothing to do with guilt or innocence, but that the law simply forbade us from leaving them together and that moving him was just logistically easier. Usually they understood.

The upshot (inasmuch as a zero tolerance policy can have an upshot) is that if somebody's going to jail anyway, taking one or taking both doesn't really make that much of a difference so there's no disincentive to arresting whoever you think committed a crime, including her.

You should have let her call them. Being  drunk is worse for your case than being a dude in domestic disputes. Well it was in my experience anyway.

I called the cops to remove a drunken woman from my apartment once, she was a friend of my girlfriend and was being very rude towards me and my other guests. When I told her to leave she got violent. I told her to leave and she refused. I had two options at this point, leave myself and leave her in control of my property and possessions, forcibly remove her, or call the police. When the cops showed up to find a sober me standing by the door and her drunkenly raving about how I hit her and they should take me to jail the officer just laughed and slapped the cuffs on her. She's no longer friends with my wife.

Came here to say this. You can't argue that something is harmless and howl about how it threatens a group that includes you in the same breath.

Violence against men is a real thing that really exists and it is a problem. This problem is in no way related to pretend video game violence against an imaginary man any more than a "beat your wife" game creates or enhances actual violence against women. That said, subby is absolutely right that a Chris Brown simulator would bring out the torch and pitchfork brigade before it was even done compiling.


The issue here is the double standard. If this were a "Smack your biatch up" game, there would be an outcry. Either both are acceptable, or neither is.

exactly! it's perfectly ok to harass by depiction of violence and degradation people who live decades or centuries and hundreds if not thousands of miles away from events which are contemptible and in which they obviously never participated and very likely would condemn, simply on the basis of the accident of gender. guys should just "man up" (amitirite?) and take it.

onyxruby: I was afraid to walk away after hearing horror story upon horror story about how sexist the family court is and how hard it is for a man to get custody of kids in the real world. The result is that a /lot/ of men stay in abusive relationships because they are afraid of losing their kids to the divorce courts. By staying with her as long as I did I protected the kids from her wraith by and took most of her of her abuse instead of them taking it. As far as I am concerned my manhood is very much still intact.


Exactly this, and it is a common story.

Only if she's hot.  As a general rule, daughters aren't particularly useful.  Maybe one or two, after you've had several sons to carry on your name.  But that's mainly so one can take over the cooking and cleaning duties after your current wife dies in childbirth.  Even that, however, is only temporary until you can get a replacement wife.

Get over you victim complexes.

Annnd we're back to the Stone age.  Throw in the towel, civilization, it's over.

I'm going to try to say this without being condescending or insensitive.  It will be hard.

Tip:  If your woman is abusing you, LEAVE.  You don't have to fight back (lord god, dont do that, you will go to jail) or care if she loves you back or not.  You are a MAN, you most likely have the ability to get a minimum wage job and a studio apartment.   If not, sleeping behind the dumpster is a whole lot easier on men then women, and preferable to being afraid of your girl.   I dont get this at ALL.

I'm going to try to say this without saying you're a damn fool, it won't work.  I meant what I said about civilization failing, civilization is the distinct part of humanity that makes it so that we can determine if someone is suffering harm and alleviate it.  This is the part that is failing.  Blaming the victim DOESN'T WORK, get that through your pointy little head.  If someone is committing criminal acts, they shouldn't be the one to stay put while their victim has to quit the field, that is UNCIVILIZED, get it yet?


Listen, im going to try and say... screw it, no im not.  learn to read jackhat...

Im not blaming the victim, im telling the "victim" to remove himself from the situation.  If you cant see that is the rational thing to do, there is ZERO hope for you, fair or not.

It seems pretty obvious that the Apple screening is more about security than content. They will block legitimate apps for doing things that could be an exploit in a shady app, but they usually don't catch the content problems until they get publicity.

I think their review process is too procedural, but it is likely due to the number of apps that they need to sort through. They need a priority queue of well-established developers who will get through faster and with more wiggle-room. It would be like the TSA program where they clear you ahead of time and you can get a simplified trip through security. There is no reason why Omni Group needs to be screened at the same level as "Ben Dover" with his "Improve You're Credit Rating Now!!!" app.

1.  "Civilization" doesn't mean what  you seem to think it means.

Yeah, I think I mentioned that's the problem, it doesn't mean what it's supposed to mean any more, so let's put it out of its misery...

2.  Advising someone to get out of a dangerous situation is help, not blame.

So telling someone to get out of a burning house is help, putting out the fire isn't?  Got it.

OK, when your house is on fire and your kids are asleep, just keep your mouth shut.


Well, yeah, you can't fight a fire while you're gagging on smoke.  I hear wet towels also work, but what do I know, I think it's civilized to NOT FARKING BEAT ON YOUR SEX PARTNER

OhioUGrad: I was in a bar one time. A male and a female were having an argument. Suddenly, the female took a bottle and broke it over the dude's head.

Then, quick as lightning, bouncers came-up and started roughing-up THE MAN.

A bunch of onlookers interceded, saying "No, no, he didn't do anything! She hit him!" etc.

These thumb-headed bouncers sort of looked at each other, shrugged with a kind of: "All right, then" They released the man and walked-away. The dude they were handling had blood rolling-down his face too.

They roughed-up the victim. Pure insanity.

And since rigid gender roles are, according to feminist theory, actually all men's fault... abused men who are laughed at are merely being hoisted by their own sexist petards!*

Gyrfalcon: kingoomieiii: Nofun: With some (a lot of) women, double standards are pretty standard stuff.

Here's a phrase from feminism: Rigid gender roles hurt everyone. This notion of "Oh, women can't REALLY hurt men" comes from gender existentialism. It's the same societal misconception that keeps male rape victims from being taken seriously.

Pretty much. It's also the same social stereotyping that says "There isn't abuse in lesbian relationships because women can't/don't/wouldn't abuse women" and "There isn't abuse in gay relationships because men really like the abuse or they wouldn't put up with it."

Abuse is abuse. It shouldn't be funny.


The worst, most destructive relationship I ever saw were two egomaniac, victim alcoholic lesbians. One is a cutter, the other ODs to beg for forgiveness.

Yeah.... No abuse... The local police blotter and the restraining order one of them ended up filing after getting her head out of her arse says otherwise.

If you're not adult enough to laugh this off you should be drugged up to the gills and institutionalised because the real world is apparently an alien planet...

I would rate the Shades of Gray, Harry Potter and Twilight fandoms as far more deserving of public derision and scorn than this rubbish....
