It is true that most reported Domestic Violence, or Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is perpetrated by men against women. Still, it is not uncommon for men to be victims of violence perpetrated by women. This happens far too often and we can’t ignore the problem. Everybody deserves to live an a safe, violence-free environment whether that be with a partner or not. IPV can take different forms, including stalking, sexual or physical violence, emotional abuse, and threats of abuse. It happens in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships.

“My dad left when I was in fourth grade, but I don’t even remember the time when he was there, really. We never spent time together. He was a raging alcoholic. I partially grew up with my grandpa.

Why is that? Likely because men are taught to be stoic and silent, and that any problems they have must be kept secret.
Bubble baths. Yoga. Getting your hair done. If these self-care ideas don’t appeal to you, then you may be a man. But what is self-care really, and isn’t it just for women? Well, self- care is taking the initiative to actively engage in something that is good for you that will maintain your mental health and wellness. And no, it is definitely not just for women. Unfortunately, it is marketed in such a way that it looks and sounds like it’s just for women, and this is simply an injustice to men, which is wrong and sad.
by Andrea Watson | December 22, 2020 First off, I do not claim to know anything about men. I am not a man and I grew up with three sisters and no brothers.
