A message board for battered men ...

Battered Husband Support
A place for battered husbands or boyfriends.
If you're a man who's been battered by your female partner, this is a place to come for support. The only rule I'm absolutely firm on is that anyone abusing others here will be booted. Other than that, any areas of discussion are open. If things degenerate into flaming, I'll step in, but otherwise, it's up to you guys. Women who want to support us are welcome here, but anyone who comes in accusing us of being liars, antifeminists, or part of some "backlash" will be summarily ejected.

Note: If you have been the victim of domestic violence, please e-mail me and tell me about it. What happened? Did you tell anyone about it? Why or why not? Did you seek help? Why or why not? If you did seek help, did you get it? May we publish your story here? We'll do it anonymously, unless you give specific permission to use your name and/or e-mail address.

Know a man who may be battered? Print out this page and give it to him. Often, it'll be enough to get him to talk to you about it -- if not right away, perhaps in a bit. And talking to another man about it is the first step in healing -- in survival.
Remember: TV star and comedian Phil Hartman never talked about his marital problems, either, except to joke about having to leave the house when his wife was mad. He told everyone the marriage was wonderful -- as so many men do.
