don't let her get into your head, you're a very brave person for getting the police involved. you did the right thing no matter what she says

Don't let it get to you. What went on behind closed doors between you & him & your safety is what matters. Your mom sees things from one side & from the sounds of it he obviously made an effort to give others one impression & treat you another way

I think a monkey could've established that from reading the FML. Op, believe in yourself and f*** the people that don't stand by your side at these harsh moments. Your mom is clueless and naive.

#29 just mixed up his stats guys. -One in 3 women will be abused in her lifetime -Every 15 seconds a woman is beaten -Feminism isn't bullshit http://www.domesticpeace.com/ed_nationalstats.html

Feminism isn't bullshit, but harping about it is. Just as many men are in abusive relationships. You don't hear about it because men are told it can't or doesn't exist.

44-- men should speak up! I totally agree. it's bullshit how society tells men that they have to be emotionless and strong. Yall can cry too!!!

#44 I never said men aren't beaten or that it shouldn't be spoken about. Domestic abuse, no matter the gender of the victim/perpetrator is a feminist issue/societal issue that needs to be talked about. It is heartbreaking that men are abused and feel they cannot speak up because they feel people will think he is "less of a man". A goal of feminism is to break gender roles and that includes man's stereotype of constant strength and inability to be overcome. Feminists stand with male

I know I'm going to regret saying this because I hate online arguments, but feminism means trying to get females to have the same rights as males, not simply getting equal rights for both genders. That isn't me "misunderstanding feminism" - it's the dictionary definition. The word for the belief that both genders should have the same rights is egalitarianism. Stop trying to redefine a movement focused on women's rights so that it includes men's rights, in an attempt to kid yourself y

You're just another egalitarian trying to poison feminism by spewing words from a dictionary, like

Also I'd love to see some tangible proof that true feminism has hurt men more than helped besides your really skewed rant. I'd LOVE it.

I definitely agree with #5, no matter what anyone says, you did the right thing. You should never have to live with that. You're very strong!

Unfortunately parents aren't always logical, and don't use their heads or good judgment like they expect their kids to. OP you did the right thing.

This is pretty much exactly what I was going to say. You got out of the abusive relationship, and that's what matters.

maybe you should tell your mom to date the bastard for a month and see her input on it then :p (being sarcastic) (down vote away)
