FixedIt: abusive man is not the victim

According to the Warwick Daily News, when a man sends “menacing” text messages to an ex-girlfriend who already has a domestic violence order against him, and then stands outside her house refusing to leave until the police arrive, the thing you really need to know is that she dumped him at Christmas after he gave her expensive jewellery. 

How dare a woman decide to end a relationship with a man who gave her jewellery? He gave her an “extravagant gift” so what right does she have to make decisions about her life or choose to live it without him?

Women are so mean to poor defenceless men who have domestic violence orders against them and are still being threatening and abusive. At least this poor men has this kind of reporting to make sure everyone feel really sorry for him. 

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the media’s constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it – even $5 a month makes a big difference – please consider becoming a Patron
