Do webpages like this Abuse FAQ encourage women to view men as the enemy?
I don't believe so and I really hope not. Men aren't the enemy.
No, when women, like me, come to these sites, they are already in an abusive relationship and need to have confirmation that they are still an intelligent, vibrant, human that can contribute, rather than buying into all of the accusations, blaming & put downs. In other words, we need some support and to be able to find the confidence that we once had to continue our lives without that particular man. I know that there are men who don't think or act like my husband.
Not at all! It is thanks to websites like this that I have been able to find my sanity again. To find my self confidence again. ANd to know that I am normal. I am more able to recognize signs of abuse, and will not put up with it anymore. And I am happy to say I have many wonderful male friends. And I am starting a new relationship that has nothing to do with what I have lived. I don't even think about it anymore!
No, it's pages like these that encourage women to be strong, know their self-worth and that they are not alone or at fault.
It would not encourage me to view men as the enemy, as not all men are abusive by any means, just a select few that have a screw or two that's lose.
I also tend to view them as informative and educational. Some women before they come to these sites, have no idea what abuse is or that what they are experiencing, is. This site enlightens them and holds the OTHER person accountable for their own actions. As it should be.
No, I don't think so. This page encouraged me that I was still worthy of my own approval, as well as approval of men who aren't abusive. Plus, this isn't just for women. Men come here to seek help about their relationships with abusive females too.

Answer . Women are a very difficult concept to understand, i say that being one myself, but it is true. A woman that return to an abusive husband are not easily able to let… go. Its hard to leave a loved one that may have cheated on you, and same goes for a loved one hitting/beating you. Love can be bad and it can be good. We, as women cannot control the type of men we love, and me sometimes make the wrong choices, and sometimes we don't even realize it until its almost too late, however, we love them so we tell ourselves that they may change eventually, and keep making up excuses for them that way you don't seem to tell yourself that its them that is the problem or has the problem. Its hard to let someone go after so so much love and so much time and effort put into the relationship that you may look over it, because of the love you have for them. Love-Kristin D.. Don't believe in codependent . I think the codependent thing is a myth, at least for most women. I got sucked in to a relationship with an N as a financially secure, independent woman. He was absolutely charming at first! It took some time for the abuse to begin, but it was executed bit by bit until there were more bad times than good. It happened gradually. Hey, the last thing a woman needs to hear is that this stuff is somehow her fault, like she asked for it or something. All women are not suckers, sorry.
Answer . Generally passionate women are submisive women, therefore after they are through using them as a punching bag they become sympathetic. Of course the woman falls in…to that submisive trap and say okay, I forgive. Then the wild passionate love making comes in effect. You know the rest of the story.
They Think the first time will be the last or they have low selfesteem. Most abusive relationships are not always abusive they haveperiods where no abuse goes on so they stop …considering it apossibility. Answer2: Why are so many women locked into such dangerousrelationships? Many people wonder: Why don't they seek help? Whydon't they leave? The answer, in most cases, is fear. Fear has beencalled the distinguishing feature of domestic violence. Abusive mentypically control their wives with violence and then silence themwith death threats. Even if the battered wife does find the courageto seek help, she may not always receive it. This is a tendency,even among people who abhor other forms of violence, to trivialize,ignore, or justify violence perpetrated by husbands. Also, outsidehis home the abusive husband may appear to be charming. Oftenfriends cannot believe that he beats his wife. Disbelieved and withnowhere to run, many abused wives feel that they have noalternative but to live in constant fear. Battered women who doleave sometimes becomes victims of stalking. Imagine their fear.Someone who has threatened you continues to turn up where you go.He phones you, follows you, watches you and waits for you. He mayeven kill your pet. It is a campaign of terror. (excerpt from 8/8/05 Awake "Why Do So Many Live in Fear onJehovah's Witnesses official website.)
No international figures are available. The total, whatever it may be, is far too large.
I think a man putting there hands on a women is sickening. No man should touch a women in any harmful way. They are cowards if they do.. Men today that abuse women are the on…es that are dealing with issues with themselves. They hit a women to feel more powerful and incontol. They could have anger issues, jealousy issues or have past family abuse. A man that hits or even comes close to touching a women needs help. They need professional help.. If you are a women with an abusive man, please get out as soon as possible. It will only get worse if you stay and allow it. Talk to someone about it. No-one deserves abuse in there life, its not and should not be allowed ever!. Please seek help if your a victim of any domestic situation.

Yes in certain states No, you should never be disrespectin yoo woman.
Absolutely but usually not physically.
It is not abuse its discipline when a woman hits a man, but when a man hits a woman its considered abuse. The above answer is not correct, anyone who hits, attacks, harms, …hurts, gives physical or emotional pain to another person is infact abusing that person.
call 911 if you are being abused or are abusive and can't stop either call 911 or a counsellor to help you.
Power over them! the men believe that they need to be the most powerful in the relationship. Even if it means hurting the one that he loves! Some were in abusive homes as chil…dren (maybe father beat mother) and the man grew up believing that that was what happened in a normal family!
In most cases, no. - They are embarassed by it. - They fear for their lives so want to make sure they don't say a word about it. - It's not a comfortable conversation to have… with someone. However, some women do to get it off their chests'; all depends on their personality..
Women Women are very likely to get away with it.
They aren't you feminist retard. Women can be abusive and so can men so get stuffed
In Abused Men
There are no true statistics of women who abuse men because decent men who know they shouldn't hit a woman or be verbally abusive back to their spouse do not report abuse as o…ften as women for fear that they will be labeled as being weak. Men don't talk to other male friends about being abused as most men think they should be able to handle a woman. Easier said than done!
Presumably for the same reason that many men enjoy abusing women...they like to feel powerful or strong, or better than someone else.Some people with low self esteem feel bett…er when they make otherpeople feel bad, because it makes them feel powerful or better incomparison, because they feel more in control of their lives. Butit isn't a good coping strategy, either way.
