Just watched the PM towing the PC line again on TV One News.
In support of my previous post here is further evidence that when it comes to psychological abuse women can dish it out too.
The data above comes from the NZ Crime and Safety Survey 2006. I am a little dubious about the inclusion of people who said they ‘don’t wish to answer’as positive though they are described as a"small" number.
Eighteen percent of men said one or two types of behaviour happened frequently or sometimes; 14 percent of women said the same. Six percent of men said that three or more behaviours happened frequently or sometimes; four percent of women said the same.
Acknowledging what the PM said yesterday according to today's NZ Herald. Good.
"A good father, a good stepfather and a good man does not hit, intimidate or control his spouse, partner, ex-partner or her children. The same goes for women who are abusers."
