Because you talk in this topic from like an expert position and the fact that you have been a victim or witness some instances of such DV does not make you any right on the subject. Just opposite, if this affects you personally you will be likely biased.
Hi X9. Expert? I couldn't help but chuckle at that
. I'm not suggesting that at all. I'm more saying this is something many people haven't heard of, and of the people who have faced it most don't know what it is, and are just left bewildered by it.
I'm not sure how having experience of something makes one biased... but hey ho!
No, I don't, I have no doubts your base is authentic and I am truly sorry for what you might have experienced but again, this is just your experience so probably you need a bit more to generalize.
I'm not speaking simply of my personal experience. I studied it in quite considerable depth, books, scientific papers, an associated newsgroup, and so on.
Yes, I have some doubts. Based on the mentioned size / strength inequality for example; behaviour of both genders in public conflict situations; high bias in the violent crime committed towards gender unspecific targets etc. etc.
When you're facing a hysterical woman with a knife in her hand, size and strength matter less than you might think. What are you going to do, give your beloved wife a KO punch or something... 'I mean she is only kidding isn't she?'
It's not really anything concrete so if you could indulge me for a bit longer and point to a specific link....
And no, I don't want to fight, I just want a fair arguments supported by some reasoning. You've been making only statements so far with no reasoning.
I'm rather losing track of the precise matter being discussed now. If you want to see something 'official' regarding personality disorders, Yahoo seemed to be the place to go (under the Health section) back in the day.
But you can also Google on 'DSM-5 personality disorder' (or DSM IV, or DSM V). In fact I'd suggest that as useful reading for many people. For me it helped explain a few 'complicated characters' that had previously crossed my path in life, and it completely changed how I perceive personality/behaviour
ps. DSM-5 being the 'Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, version 5', which are the 'official' criteria used by psychiatrists to diagnose the various medically recognised personality disorders.
