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.

Not saying people don't get beaten, not saying people should get beaten, but cut the feminist bullshit. Way less than 1/3.

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 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 abuse victims and those who do not, are not real feminists. Check out Shia lebeouf's case for example.

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 you're actually doing something for men, when in fact feminism has hurt men far more than it has helped them. In the workplace, female candidates are frequently chosen over men with better qualifications, simply because there is a higher ratio of men to women and they want to "even things out"; not many male victims of domestic violence report the abuse because in 12% of cases they will end up being arrested themselves, whereas the chances of their female partner being arrested, or even just ordered out of the house, are so slim they are basically zero; I could go on... tl;dr Stop trying to include men's rights in a movement that has resulted in them having less rights.

Uhm, no. It's hilarious that you think that a dictionary definition is law, but it's not. Feminism is all about fighting for equal rights for everyone and destroying harmful societal bullshit, among other things. Therefore, true feminism includes the removal of gender roles and stereotypes, which hurt both men and women. True feminism is all about helping abuse victims, regardless of their gender. You're just another egalitarian trying to poison feminism by spewing words from a dictionary, like that's somehow going to change what the ACTUAL MOVEMENT is all about.

I'm so sorry /: I understand how that can be with parents. Sometimes you just have to try your best to ignore it /:

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.
