Re “Abusing Reid” (Upfront, March 4):

Dennis Myers misses the point that men’s rights activists are making about Sen. Harry Reid’s comments. The point isn’t whether domestic violence rises due to unemployment, but Sen. Reid’s gender-biased comments, stigmatizing male victims and their children by blaming only males for the problem.

Men are less likely to report it (which makes crime data unreliable), but almost 300 studies now confirm “women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners,” as California State University Professor Martin Fiebert shows in his online bibliography at www.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm

For example, a 32-nation study by the University of New Hampshire found women are as violent and controlling as men in dating relationships worldwide www.unh.edu/news/cj_nr/2006/may/em_060519male.cfm?type=n

The Centers for Disease Control funded a major study of heterosexual relationships throughout the U.S. and found: “Almost 24% of all relationships had some violence, and half (49.7%) were reciprocally violent. In nonreciprocally violent relationships, women were perpetrators in more than 70% of the cases,” and both sexes had significant injuries www.ajph.org/cgi/content/abstract/97/5/941.

When children witness parental violence, however severe or minor, it becomes a model for them. Domestic violence is an intergenerational cycle, and we’ll never stop it without being honest about it rather than following the politically correct gender paradigm that has been totally refuted by serious researchers like Professor Don Dutton of the University of British Columbia and many others.
