Funding men’s shelter will reduce funding for women’s shelters.

Never mind the fact that this is exactly what they’re doing in reverse. Men have no shelters at all, pure selfishness.

Disgusting. Hell is too good for these vermin.

Feminist love to paint domestic abuse as an issue done against women by men when in reality anyone can be a victim of domestic abuse, male or female, straight or gay. They make it seem like domestic abuse occurs because of misogyny.

But then when anti feminists and MRAs bring up how male victims of domestic abuse aren’t taken seriously they turn around and say “it’s because of the patriarchy, men’s problems are caused by other men.”

Funny thing is, domestic abuse has all kinds of abuse.

Control

Physical Abuse

Sexual Abuse

Emotional Abuse & Intimidation

Isolation

Verbal Abuse: Coercion, Threats, & Blame

I'm a victim myself. My ex wife completly and almost instantaneously switched as soon as we got married. From verbal threats and degrading me in the bedroom to expecting favors in return for sex. Well kind of. If I wanted sex, I'd have to fold laundry, do dishes, and just general household chores. Not, hey I'll let you fuck me if you do the dishes tonight. it was, you're not fucking touching me, unless you do those god damn dishes.

And if I ever didn't finish a task because I worked and had other projects, she'd take her little toys to the shower and get herself off. And if I ever was caught jerking it, it was the end of the fucking world. From anger and screaming at me to crying and playing victim because "I didn't want to fuck her anymore".

We ended up getting divorced less than a year after getting married(her choice). Her excuse for a divorce was because I changed, or wasn't the man I was when we were dating. Come to find out, she got knocked up by some married dude she worked with. Good riddance to her, and good luck to that dude.

I'm married again now, and have a wonderful wife and three beautiful children, I'm a stay at home dad, and she loves me being home with the kids and not in some daycare where they may be ignored or bullied etc.

My ex wife blocked me on all social media's but I ended up finding her sister's Facebook a couple years ago, and omg, she is huge, with like 5 kids. Like, I'm glad it ended when it did, because she did want kids with me. Who knows how long it would've taken me to hang myself.

A lot of times women commit verbal, physical, and control.

[–]GabeTheJerk 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

A woman can get away with it much easier than a man, cause of the "haha you're pathetic a woman is beating you!" stigma.

Why's there no feminists commenting on this post I wonder...

I'm curious to hear what stuff they have to say to justify and defend this kind of sexism and discrimination.

[–]ExMuzzy[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

They either agree with the feminists in the post and say only a small number of men are victims of domestic violence. However, in the UK men make up at least 40% of victims so this excuse does not work.

Or will say the usual “it’s the vocal minority”.

[–]grammarlysucksass 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I can defend it easily. Women's aid isn't asking the government not to fund gender neutral shelters, they're just petitioning to make sure funding is not taken from single sex shelters in order to do this.

I fully acknowledge the need for gender neutral shelters, as they benefit men, and mixed gender families fleeing DV. However, I also know that particularly female victims of sexual violence often require a sex segregated space to recover and be safe.

There needs to be funding for both, and funding one at the cost of another is not a solution. Which seems to be the point of the petition.

[–]RingosTurdFace 10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Just goes to show how full if hate they are.

It’s not enough there’s already shit loads of help available only to women, they can’t stand to see men get any help at all.

They’re like a vicious ex partner, who despite breaking up with you, can’t bear it when you move on and find happiness so come after you to make your life miserable.

😢I feel for the male victims, must be hard

[–]Nyle420 18 points19 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Nah bro, feminists are fighting for women AND men. /s

[–]alex137a1 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

So much for equality for men, oh...

[–]PsychologicalItem353 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

HILARIOUS again feminism thinking rights/equality is a game. Greedy mother fuckers

[–]grammarlysucksass 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

You've completely misrepresented the headline. Petitioning for funding specifically for women is not the same as petitioning against funding for men. Single sex spaces for female victims of DV is important. Gender neutral spaces for victims of DV are also important. Hence why the charity is asking the government to fund women's shelters in addition to rather than instead of gender neutral shelters.

[–]ExMuzzy[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

The government will fund only gender neutral organisations. That’s not the same as saying they must be gender neutral shelters. Organisations which receive government funding will have to provide services for both genders whether that means individual shelters for either sex or gender neutral shelters. Which is why a women’s only charity lost 5M in funding last year.

There are shelters everywhere for women and little to nothing for men in the UK.

[–]grammarlysucksass 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

I think it is really unfortunate that there are very few options for men who need shelter in the UK. However I don't think the solution is to take essential funding away from women's only shelters or force women's only shelters to become gender neutral in order to keep funding.

Surely any reasonable person can admit that there is a dire need for both women's only shelters, (which despite existing 'everywhere' are being forced to turn women away because they can't meet the increasing demand caused by the pandemic) and gender neutral shelters.

You're fighting the wrong battle by attacking women's charities for trying to keep the funding they need. You should be demanding that the government provide ample funding for both gender neutral and single sex women's shelters.

[–]ExMuzzy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

You ignored the part of my comment that said gender neutral charities are able to produce both male only, female only or gender neutral shelters. They cannot have shelters for only one gender if they want funding. You don't seem to think men only shelters are necessary either, only womens and gender neutral.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
