#ViolenceIsViolence, and double standards are no excuse

Pay close attention to people’s reactions. ’nuff said.

From the YouTube description

40% of domestic violence is against men in the UK. Violence is violence, no matter who it’s aimed at.

Our helpline costs just £35,000 per year to run, by donating you will help us to support men suffering in this way get the support they need. Please donate here: https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/mankindinitiative

From The ManKind Initiative’s page:

Our confidential helpline is available for all men across the UK suffering from domestic violence or domestic abuse by their current or former wife or partner (including same-sex partner).

This can range from actual violence or object throwing to mental abuse such as constant bullying or constant insults.

We provide both emotional support and practical information.

We receive calls from male victims across all age ranges and professions:

•    From dustmen and doctors to bankers and builders,
•    From men in their 20s to men in their 80s,
•    From men across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

We welcome calls from mothers, sisters and friends of male victims seeking information.

We also receive calls from support organisations, charities and statutory agencies such as local authorities and police forces.
