Domestic Abuse and Violence against Men

Peru Immigration Documentation Project

There are many reasons why we don't know more about domestic abuse and violence against men. There are no absolute rules for understanding the emotional differences between men and women. There are principles and dynamics that allow interpretation of individual situations.  Domestic abuse and violence against men and women have some similarities and difference. Domestic abuse can also be mental or emotional.  However, what will hurt a man mentally and emotionally, can in some cases be very different from what hurts a woman.  For some men, being called a coward, impotent or a failure can have a very different psychological impact than it would on women.  Unkind and cruel words hurt, but they can hurt in different ways and linger in different ways.

Hay muchas razones por las que no sabemos más acerca de la violencia doméstica contra los hombres. No hay reglas absolutas para la comprensión de las diferencias emocionales entre hombres y mujeres. Pero hay principios y las dinámicas que permiten la interpretación de las situaciones individuales. El abuso doméstico y la violencia contra los hombres y las mujeres tienen algunas similitudes y diferencias. El abuso doméstico también puede ser mental o emocional. Sin embargo, lo que va a herir a un hombre mentalmente y emocionalmente, en algunos casos puede ser muy diferente de lo que duele una mujer. Para algunos hombres, ser llamado un cobarde, impotente o un fracaso puede tener un impacto psicológico muy diferente de lo que en las mujeres. Poco amable y las crueles palabras duelen, pero puede hacer daño de diferentes maneras y persisten en diferentes formas.

Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, child abuse or intimate partner violence, can be broadly defined a pattern of abusive behaviors by one or both partners in an intimate relationship such as marriage, dating, family, friends or cohabitation.

Domestic violence has many forms including

  • physical aggression (hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, throwing objects), or threats thereof; sexual abuse; emotional abuse; controlling or domineering; intimidation; stalking; passive/covert abuse (neglect); and economic deprivation. Domestic violence may or may not constitute a crime, depending on local statues, severity and duration of specific acts, and other variables. Alcohol consumption and mental illness have frequently been associated with abuse.

Awareness, perception and documentation of domestic violence differ from country to country, and from era to era. Estimates are that only about a third of cases of domestic violence are actually reported in the United States and the United Kingdom. According to the Centers for Disease Control, domestic violence is a serious, preventable public health problem affecting more than 32 million Americans, or over 10% of the U. S. population.

Violence between spouses has long been considered a serious problem. The United States has a lengthy history of legal precedent condemning spousal abuse. In 1879, law scholar Nicholas St. John Green wrote, "The cases in the American courts are uniform against the right of the husband to use any [physical] chastisement, moderate or otherwise, toward the wife, for any purpose." Green also cites the 1641 Body of Liberties of the Massachusetts Bay colonists -— one of the first legal documents in North American history —- as an early de jure condemnation of violence by either spouse.
