As a newbie Muslim I find your site helpful, however as a father's rights activist and someone who understands feminism all too well, I found your page on domestic violence to be deeply flawed.
You are simply presenting feminist fallacies as facts.
"Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between ages 15 and 44 in the united States - more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. (Uniform Crime Reports, Federal Bureau of Investigation, 1991)"
That is FAKE. A woman is as likely to be hurt by medical malpractise, ie from her own doctor, than hospitalised by her husband.
Trips, accidental poisoning, animal bites, car accidents and other such things - how can you begin to imagine "male violence" is the leading cause of injury?
The page starts off with the famous "A woman is beaten every 15 seconds" but you don't mention the exact same report, if looking at it in such a manner, states a man is beaten by his wife or female partner every 12 seconds..
Domestic violence has long been a favourite weapon of male-hating feminists who seek to destroy the family unit (rarely does one here that a married woman is the least at risk of violence of all women..) much of this comes from early communism. Soviet Russia needed female farm workers to work in heavy industry and also realised that families and religion were what prevented them having complete control over the people, so that set out to smash both, along with private property.
Feminism, in the form we know it today (the early version was to help women AVOID work!) is a direct off-shoot from that desire to destroy the family.
You really must avoid using feminist "facts" and "figures", even seemingly official looking ones. Quite simply, they lie.
Domestic violence is a serious issue, it effects both sexes, young children and the elderly. And when it comes to the elderly and children women commit by far the most of it.
Even within couples it is typically the woman who strikes first. Grand talk of how a man should not strike back merely means when an explosive situation occurs there is no restraint at all, just the release of frustration. Women are literally being killed by the notion "you shouldn't hit a woman" when combined with the false belief that it's OK for a woman to hit a man.
Please remove the anti-male aspect of your website. You do not have to pander to the male-hating feminists just to prove Islam does not hate women.
Have pride, have faith. When did the Prophet, peace be upon him, ever say "apologise for being a man"?
The truth is more than sufficient, it is also more important than feminists getting in a snit.
PS I have just noticed the other comments saying the same as I do. Why is this stuff still there? And why do you have the "FACT" about the "leading cause of injury" and on the same page the equally fake but lower figure of 35%???

Comment:I think that anyone getting abused weather male or female should seek help in getting away from the abuser...No one deserves to be hit in any way shape or fashion..No one has the right to put thier hands on you or someone you love...heres a solution...superglue ( use your imagination )

Comment:I find it appalling that this site perpetrates the myth that men are always the abusers and women always the victims. This type of misandry must stop. Men are equally as likely to be victims of domestic violence. Also, this site completely ignores the needs of women victims who were abused by female partners. This site needs to stop its male hate mongering and provide accurate factual data.

Comment:Being a victom of domestic abuse myself, i find it appauling you think its only female victoms. Thats a myth in its own right. Its great you reconize women as victoms of abuse. But we need more awareness of the fact that men get beat as often as women. If fact, its much less likely to be reported by a beaten husband. I never hit my ex but she sure did hit me,many times. Plz post more info on this.

|Search The Quran|
|Something to Ask...|
|O Allah! |
I ask You by every name that You have, that You have called Yourself by, that You have taught any of Your Creation, that You have revealed in Your Book, or that You may have kept secret with Yourself.
Make the Quran the spring of my heart, the light of my breast, the dispeller of my sorrows, the eraser of my anxieties and worries.
