They certainly can.
However, many people act as though women are incapable of being the abuser in a relationship, only being able to be the victim.
Now, I'm not making fun at women who are in abusive relationships, I'm simply saying that sometimes it can be around the other way, with the woman
abusing the man.
But, of course, if a man is getting abused he isn't suppose to say or do anything, since that isn't manly.
I remember while driving to uni one day the two hosts on the radio were talking about a recent squabble of domestic violence that occurred. A man called the police after his girlfriend repeatedly punched and kicked him and threw objects at him. However, here's the hilarious thing; when the cops arrive, what do they do? They immediately grab the guy, put him in handcuffs and haul him outside.
Since he was male, OBVIOUSLY he was the abuser, OBVIOUSLY the chick was the victim.
They can also abuse their own children; that isn't an exclusively male
feature. Females are just as capable of beating and mentally breaking their own kids.
Sometimes the mother is far worse then the father, yet because the mother is female, she is obviously the better parent all the time.
Also, I hate it how they have 'days'. In New Zealand there was a nation 'Stop violence against women day,' which was for domestic abuse. Soooo, men can't be the subject of violence, then?
Women can hit men as well, it's not exclusive to one gender. lol typo.
