Men may not be believed if they come forward

At about 2:10 Ian McNicholl explains that “Violence is a gender neutral issue. It’s wrong for a man to hit a woman. Violence of any description is wrong, so that wouldn’t have solved it. I can’t say why she committed the level of violence that she did. The fact for a man is that there are additional difficulties that they may not be believed if they come forward.”

This reminds me of the common Feminist argument that women who make false accusations should not be charged because it might dissuade real victims. Well, when men are commonly not believed, we can understand why we might not come forward, and why it is so facile to dismiss accusations of violence toward men, by women.
