  1. Its evident that women also can attack men(supari.org/acid/ [ Man injured in acid attack by wife ] and other links at the top of this post).

    We see no reason why this bill should not be gender Neutral.

  2. Any law should be gender neutral, especially when women are equally inclined to destructive actions, as the links at the top of this post indicates.

    Acid attack law also should be gender neutral, if we do not want to unleash yet another slew of false cases under this provision of law.

  3. Hi, Gokul. Nice comments.
    Even though ‘rape of men’ has not been documented well in India, 0.9% of men in US have suffered marital rape/abuse in the last 12 months compared to 1.5% of women.

    Scientific data is lacking in India, and needs people with background in statistics and survey methodology including Surveymonkey.

    Domestic violence (also known as domestic abuse or spousal abuse) occurs when a family member, partner or ex-partner attempts to physically or psychologically dominate another.

    Family violence is a broader definition, often used to include child abuse, elder abuse, and other violent acts between family members.

    Data from the National Family Violence Survey (USA) consistently show that men and women are equally likely to be physically assaulted by an intimate partner.

    The same report, on phone interviews with 8000 men and 8000 women, reported that 7.5% of men have been raped or assaulted by an intimate at some time in their life time (compared to 25% of women), and 0.9 percent of men had been raped or assaulted in the previous 12 months (compared to 1.5% of women).

    Distinctions are not based on single incidents, but rather on patterns across numerous incidents and motives of the perpetrator.

    Types of violence identified include (Johnson):
    Common couple violence (CCV) is not connected to general control behavior, but arises in a single argument where one or both partners physically lash out at the other. Intimate terrorism is one element in a general pattern of control by one partner over the other. Intimate terrorism is more common than common couple violence, more likely to escalate over time, not as likely to be mutual, and more likely to involve serious injury.

    Intimate terrorism (IT) may also involve emotional and psychological abuse.

    Violent resistance (VR), sometimes thought of as “self-defense”, is violence perpetrated usually by women against their abusive partners.

    Mutual violent control (MVC) is rare type of intimate partner violence occurs when both partners act in a violent manner, battling for control.

    CDC (USA), divide domestic violence into two types: reciprocal violence, in which both partners are violent, and non-reciprocal violence, in which one partner is violent.
