Some 21.6% of the male victims in that 2001 survey were threatened with a knife, contrasted to 12.7% of the women (Hoff, 2001, Table 1).
The NISVS omission of threats by knife or gun is not only curious, but it flies in the face of the Centers for Disease Control’s own recommendations on data for intimate partner violence (Salzman, T.
Men were more often the victims of both psychological aggression (“expressive aggression” and “coercive control”) and control of reproductive or sexual health.
Name-calling is one of the forms of “expressive aggression,” which includes acting angry in a way that seemed dangerous, name-calling and insulting remarks.
For men the top items were being called names (51.6%) and being told they were losers (42.4%) NISVS did not present detailed data on control of reproductive or sexual health.
It summarized that “Approximately 10.4% (or an estimated 11.7 million) of men in the United States reported ever having an intimate partner who tried to get pregnant when they did not want to or tried to stop them from using birth control.” (p. “Approximately 8.6% (or an estimated 10.3 million) of women in the United States reported ever having an intimate partner who tried to get them pregnant when they did not want to.” P. Studies show that men are less likely than women to seek help, and those that do have to overcome internal and external hurdles. Department of Justice solicitation of proposals for Justice Responses to Intimate Partner Violence and Stalking (p. Proposals for research on intimate partner violence against, or stalking of, males of any age or females under the age of 12.” In the few studies done, many men report that hotline workers say they only help women, imply or state the men must be the instigators, ridicule them or refer them to batterers’ programs.
For women, this was split fairly evenly between expressive aggression and coercive control, while for men, 15.2% were subjected to coercive control and 9.3% to expressive aggression.
The main forms of expressive aggression against women were insults (64.3%) and name-calling (58.0%).
NISVS did not ask about knife-wielding, but did ask about condoms and name-calling.
(Tables 4.7 and 4.8) 4 Of the 4,741,000 female victims of violence, two-thirds (3,163,000 or 66.7%) were subjected to severe physical violence.
(Table 4.7) For men, over 4 out of 10 (2,266,000 or 42.3%) were subjected to severe physical violence.
But even if one ignores the double-counting of rape and physical violence, the number of female victims of rape and/or physical violence is 5,427,000 for women, contrasted with 5,365,000 male victims of physical violence, so it is safe to say that about half of the victims of physical violence are men. In the 2001 NVAWS survey, some 38% of the victims of intimate physical violence were men, but in the 2011 NISVS survey 53% were men.
There is a significant difference between the NVAWS and NISVS surveys, in the number of victims of physical violence (4,741,000 vs. This is consistent with earlier studies showing that between 19 (Straus and Gelles, 1988, Straus, 1995), between 19 (Catalano , 2005) and between 20 (Truman, 2011, Table 6) violence against women dropped but violence against males stayed steady.
