Domestic violence against men

There is not a lot of help or support for men who have faced IPV. 695,000 men experienced domestic abuse in the last year. Based on the facts, there is a dire need for shelters for men who are seeking help.

Abuse comes in different forms. And, this makes it much more complicated to fight this epidemic. So, here are the key domestic violence categories you should know:

Physical Violence

  • Physical Violence: Have your partner ever hit you? What about kicking or biting? Maybe they pulled your hair out of rage…No?!

If you have ever experienced such things or anything similar to that, you were abused. If you don’t take action, things might get severe. After all, you don’t want to live the rest of your life without a limb. Do you?!

Emotional Abuse

  • Emotional Abuse: This is one of the most prevalent DV issues out there. And also, emotional violence is very subtle, that most people fail to even acknowledge it.

Here, the abusers will either abuse, threaten, accuse, or humiliate the victims. If you’re facing this, seek help. Or else, you may even develop Stockholm syndrome as well.

Sexual Violence

  • Sexual Violence: Does your partner frequently forces you to have intercourse?! Well, what about the sexual insults that they make about your body?!

Sexual abuse is quite a common type of DV that plagues millions of victims all around the globe. When you don’t do something about it, it might even lead to rape. You don’t want that, right?!


  • Control: Some abusers are obsessed with controlling their partners. Like spying on your phone calls and texts and not allowing the victims to go somewhere.

And, when you’re a victim of this behavior, it feels strangled and trapped. Doesn’t it?! Well, what are you waiting for?! Seek help and get rid of this.


  • Isolation: There are some weird freaks out there. And they like to torture someone by completely isolating them from the world.

If your partner doesn’t allow you to go somewhere or meet someone, you’re a victim of this behavior. When you don’t do anything about this, you will get yourself into a bigger threat.

Getting Help

There is also the National Domestic Violence Hotline,

  • Victims of domestic abuse can contact Calan or the Live Fear Free helpline 0808 801 0800, that can get you the resources, referrals, or the crisis intervention that you need.

If you don’t feel comfortable with calling the hotline, make sure that you do talk to someone that you can trust.

That could be a relative, friend, neighbour, co-worker, or a spiritual advisor. There are also counselling and support groups for people that have also been in abusive relationships, that can give you the encouragement that you need.

No one ever deserves to be abused. No one. It can have a crippling effect on male victims and the empowerment should not be allowed to continue. Do not be afraid to reach out and get help.
