Thank you for bringing it so into perspective. I wish society was focused
(especially schools) on teaching these values. On the bright side, my 7th
graders will be meeting with their guidance counselor all week following
Winter Break, and he will be talking about bullying. Not just about not
being a bully, but also about not being a silent bystander. I am most
excited to be a part of it!

The statistic thrown in that men are 50% the victims of violence is a
highly disputed one put forth by Strauss and Gelles that does not take into

account context or victim injury. Countless empirical studies document that

intimate partner violence is primarily perpetrated by males against females

<(See the National Crime Victimization Survey, 1997; National Survey of
Adolescents, Kilpatrick et al, 2000).......
