FTA: The rate of partner-to-partner violence dropped 64 percent between 1994 and 2010, a Justice Department report has found.

Good news?

Am I still @ Fark?

*checks hastily, notices gawdawful joke in headline*

Yup, still here.

Weird.

Still, I'll take it.

Won't someone please think of the traditional marriages?

Well I, for one, am thankful that women are finally learning their place.

Tell that to my upstairs neighbors, who I've nicknamed Shrieking Harpy and Spineless Dude.

I'd like to see an actual graph on that one before crediting it all to the one piece of legislation.  Especially because the entire rest of the article seems to be saying it's a gradual drop, which is more consistent with the "changing attitudes during the '80s" theory presented earlier in TFA.

"When Joan Meier, professor of clinical law at, looks at the data, she can't help but notice a certain time stamp: 1994. That's the year the passed the, legislation that is now up for renewal in Congress."

Those men have blood on their hands. Assholes.

Must've been a lot of cabin fever that weekend. The morning after the blizzard the woman in the apartment next to me got into a knock down drag out fight with two guys in her apartment, then in the hall outside my door. Someone was screaming "Put the knife down!" Her doorframe was also kicked in and wrecked.

I didn't care that the snow made it impossible for anyone to get anywhere, I called the cops and my landlord. The cops finally showed up, and I told my landlord this girl is nuts and she won't stop having these arguments. I'll keep calling the cops for every disturbance she causes until either she or I are thrown out.

It's okay, domestic violence just fell down the stairs.
 
2013-02-15 08:44:39 AM  
does it count if its not "legitimate" domestic violence?

blacknite: does it count if its not "legitimate" domestic violence?


Nah.  A woman's domocile has a way to shut that whole thing down if it were.

Nice to know we're winning the war on violence.

Good. But looking for social initiatives to attribute this to may overly assign praise. Violence and crime in general have been dropping - much of which some attribute to a decrease of lead in the environment.

I'm not saying that the acceptability of spousal violence hasn't changed. Its just that there are less lead-retarded people who find it acceptable.

And then it walked into a door knob. Repeatedly.

Domestic violence is down. As is all violent crime. Probably due to the phase out of lead gasoline. The more I read the more I'm convinced that lead abatement is nearly a social panacæa.

I'd show this to my wife, but she'd just throw *another* plate at me.
I don't want any more stitches, thanks.

A million battered women and I'm still eating mine raw?

And yet piracy is at an all time high, drugs are running rampant, homosexuals can openly walk down the sidewalk, pornography can be found in seconds, and men no longer control every facet of society.


Clearly the United States is doomed. DOOMED!

It's only because we love domestic violence so much and wish it wouldn't make us do bad things.

/See you in hell.

From XKCD
Correlation doesn't imply causation, but it does waggle its eyebrows suggestively and gesture furtively while mouthing "look over there"

I like to point out, so will again, assault of all types has been falling gradually for decades. With more serious crimes falling the most. Rape in particular is way way down, even more than murder.  You won't get that impression if you listen to the news, or talk to people, but the figures don't lie. Before you think of biatching, murder is down by 2/3's.  Rape is down between 70 and 80%, and that's not reported rapes, but from long term surveys going back 50 years.

My landlord would slap an eviction notice on her door while fixing the frame!
