A couple of years ago, I was going out with this girl who was extremely possessive. At first, I thought that it was cute, but as our time dating progressed, it became extremely off-putting. The relationship finally dissolved after she knocked me unconscious and left me at a park for four hours. I had temporary retrograde amnesia, and I was questioned by officers, but I couldn't bring myself to reveal to them what happened. The onIy person I told was my brother, who is my best friend, but he laughed at me and told me that if I allowed a girl to beat my ass, then I deserved it.
I guess that I am revealing this because of a video (posted below) one of my professors presented in class yesterday. I began to become uneasy, and I just stormed out of the room. I realize that I need to talk to someone about this, but I'm just too embarrassed of the potential ridicule. Anyways, do you think that males can be victims of domestic violence?
Men can ABSOLUTELY be victims of domestic abuse! Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise and there is absolutely no shame in you seeking help for what happened to you. I feel so sad that you even have to ask this question and are afraid to get help. Your brother should be the one feeling shame for not being supportive of you in the least!
Sorry you went through that. And yes, males can be in abusive relationships as well but sadly those situations are rarely taken serious. Women beat on men quite often and though I'm against a man ever physically harming a female, sometimes people snap. One can only take but so much. But before it even gets to that point it's just best to leave the relationship, because as soon as the man hits back, then he's the one that ends up in jail. It's just not worth it. Everyone needs to keep their hands to themselves.
