International men's day
« on: November 19, 2020, 03:28:42 pm »
Its international men's day.

Not much to say, I'm aware that in Ireland 1 in 7 men experience domestic abuse.
Physical, sexual, emotional, psychological or even financial abuse.

Just know if this is something that you are going through you are not alone and its not your fault. Seek support #InternationalMensDay #IMD2020

I had no idea this was a thing.
Are the majority of these abused men being abused by other men or women? Just curious.. bc all the bullies I've ever encountered were male.

Women would account for a large number, I'm sure there are some same-sex couples in those numbers, not that it makes any difference.

It's a pity that Men are not getting more help than they need and is always bottling up their emotions. My dad always say, men can bleed but they can't shed tears.
